Boot logo

Post by Andrei003 »

I want to change the boot logo. What should I change, and how (are there any rules for the bitmap itself?)

look at ntoskrnl/inbv/logo , and also observe how the bitmaps are paletted-indexed bitmaps, and not regular 24-bits bitmaps.

For this PR (https://github.com/reactos/reactos/pull/1600) I used Photoshop CS6. You should make a 16-color image (use any colors, but only 16), then just switch to "Indexed colors" mode, choose your colors and save image as 4-bit (or 8-bit if not available) BMP. Then use Usenti to RESAVE it (Save As -> Choose File -> As 4-bit BMP), because Photoshop works bad with 4-bit images.

I am thinking on GIMP (https://www.gimp.org/).
