Change the Splashscreen how?

Hello, i've edited PortableFirefox.jpg in the PortableFirefoxCode folder to splashscreen that I like.

But I still see the original splashscreen.

Is there anyone here who knows how to change this?

Greetings, Milan

P.S. If my english is very bad i'm sorry for that, I come from the Netherlands

Recompile

The splash screen is actually compiled into the launcher. It doesn't use the JPG directly when it runs. You'll need NSIS installed and then the newadvsplash and FindProcDLL plugins. All the code is in PortableFirefox.nsi.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Couldn't get it to Work

I got the program you suggested to change the splash screen, but can't seem to figure it out. Can you give a pointer or some more help with this. I would like to change mine also. Thanks a ton

Cheers,
Mike

RE:

The deal is that I have never used nsis before, and I'm not understanding how it works. I am starting to read the user manual but changing a splash pic should be a simple change (I would assume) and I was looking for a starting point or how to begin. I'm not coming in here expecting the answer handed to me without looking, but the PortableFirefox.nsi script points to splash.jpg, which I can't find. I don't see how a pic is compiled into there, and upon opening the script with nsis, I recieve an error. So I'm not sure were to go from here. So I am back to the manual. Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thankyou

Download the plugins FindProcDLL and newadvsplash.

then replace the jpg in PortableFirefoxCode with yours. Now recompile.
