hi,

does anyone know why webstart modifies the splash screen image that is referenced in the jnlp?
i always get that nasty dithering.

here's the game:
http://games.rastaduck.org/NanoBlaster/NanoBlaster.jnlp

and here's my original splash image:
http://games.rastaduck.org/NanoBlaster/splash.jpg

do you see the difference? if not, maybe i was looking at a cached version of the image. Huh

cheers,
mod

Yep... pretty annoying, isn't it?

AFAIK there is no way to prevent that.

I just loaded it and it didn't even show a splash screen... on Java 1.5

The splash isn't shown on the first run (that's normal).

Is it? Huh
It didn't show on any subsequent runs on my system either, BTW (running 1.5 here as well).

Yes, it is.

How can I provide my own splash screen?

Java Web Start needs to put up the initial splash screen while Java is loading. For subsequent access, you can specify an image file to use for the splash screen in the JNLP file with the tag

<icon href="mysplash.jpg" kind="splash"/>

where mysplash.jpg is the image file for your splash screen.  The first time your application runs, it will use the standard splash screen. After that, it will use the image you provide.
