Delay startup of RetroFE until splash video is done.
« on: March 14, 2023, 06:06:26 PM »
Hello, I wanted to switch the splash.mp4 in my build. The original one is 1.5 secs long and the one I want to replace it with is 10 secs long. I was successful in swapping the videos and making it so the whole video plays out, but I can't figure out how to delay the start of RetroFE until the video is over. 1.5 secs into the splash video, I can hear and interact with RetroFE in the background. Is this possible?

It should do that by default already. Can you upload your log.txt for me to have a look at?

It does appear to go right from splash to layout. Can you upload your splash.xml file?

That's not the splash.xml I asked for...

I see the issue: you're using an empty splash.xml, and instead display the splash video from the main layout. Have a look at the default RetroFE setup to see how it should be done. This will also allow you to interrupt the video in case you don't want to watch it till the end.
