    :confused: Does anyone know if it is possible to edit the color palette for the win xp boot screen? I got some graphics and pics I wanna place on it, but........since it has so few colors, well the graphics look like crap!! Also does anyone know if you can place an animated .gif on the boot up screen to? Or is what I am thinking about doing a bloody pipe dream. tY for any info.:cool:

    I believe you can't edit the pallete as it is made to be 16 colors..I knwo you can't have any animations other then the bar...

    But now that I think about it I have seen some boot screens that look like they were more then 16 colors, but you'd have to look around sites like themexp and wincustomize see if you can find one and contact the author.

    And please try to post in one topic thanks :)

    As far as I'm aware you cat have more than sixteen colours. You can however cheat by dithering. ( Everyone remember that ?, think spectrum, or Atatri )
