I have created a simple script that randomize at boot time the splashscreen on your retropie.
It has more than 70 splashscreens and 8 videos.
Fully working with Retropie3.5
Here’s the gallery:proxycellParticipant12/21/2014 at 04:32Post count: 203

hey man, does this requires the fbi package to be installed?
EDIT: wait, is this just modifying the splashscreen to be launched? nothing else? yay!sur0xParticipant01/05/2015 at 16:56Post count: 54tupadreParticipant01/08/2015 at 00:04Post count: 8
Not sure what I have done wrong on this but I cant seem to get it to work correctly. I updated via git. It installed to /home/pi/retropiesplashscreen (is this the right directory because I though splashscreens went to the supplementary folder)
I then did sudo ./retropiesplashscreen/setup_splash.sh
Update……then rebooted (didn’t do anything different)
got back in and Boot Install (nothing different here either)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!sur0xParticipant01/08/2015 at 01:30Post count: 54
@tupadre that’s correct, splashs are copied over supplmentary folder.
Did you choose option 1 after execute:
and everything went correct?
Thing to try:
After Pressing number 1, a file called dirs.txt should be created in folder, check if it has the name of the splashs folder
Check how many splashs are in:
Check Current splash and execute script only:
/etc/splashscreen.listthen check which one is there
/etc/splashscreen.listcheck again, should change
and post results heresur0xParticipant02/05/2015 at 20:36Post count: 54
Hey guise, updated with latest submissions, checkout the gallery!sur0xParticipant04/21/2015 at 15:52Post count: 54
Hey guys, back.
Updated the information, the randomizer is working perfect with 2.6 and 3.0beta2.
I added 3 more splashs that Ive got on the forum, check here:AnonymousInactive05/13/2015 at 03:38Post count: 8
Hey man, this is fantastic! Can I delete splash’s I don’t like and add my own? Or would I have to edit a splashscreen list file or something?sur0xParticipant05/13/2015 at 03:45Post count: 54

Sure, you can delete and add without problem, clone the project and delete the folders that you don’t want it or add more folders, just preserve the folder hierarchy.
Then use the installer, you don’t need to edit anything else
If you have more suitable images please send me over github or rodrigosiviero at gmail and I can include it on the github as well.tupadreParticipant05/14/2015 at 04:08Post count: 8
I use this on my system and have added/taken off as needed. It is really awesome and I always watch just to see which screen comes up next.yanfoxParticipant08/14/2015 at 22:26Post count: 5
I’ve tried your script, really nice job !
Just a question, why don’t you use the original splashcreen folder for random ?
Maybe with this little mod, it can be used in the next version as an option ?
Maybe you can add an option to uninstall the script too :)
Keep up the good work ^^sur0xParticipant08/15/2015 at 03:44Post count: 54yanfoxParticipant08/18/2015 at 00:57Post count: 5
I mess it :) very good !
Do you think it’ll works with video too ? (did not tried).
I’m currently use the Smither video with psone audio… really good ! I’m fan :) But if I find other interesting videos without branding for the author, I’ll use it with your random script for sure ^^
I’m pretty sure that it’s better to merge your splashscreen and original one to avoid mistakes with users… that’s my opinion ;-)AnonymousInactive08/19/2015 at 23:13Post count: 11
I tried to install/run this (which looks awesome by the way), and cloning worked, but when using “sudo ./setup_splash.sh” or “sudo ./splashscreen.sh” it doesn’t work, saying ‘command not found’.
edit: disregard this; I was in the wrong directory.
Works great, is amazing! :D Thanks!sur0xParticipant08/20/2015 at 19:01Post count: 54
Hi @yanfox , @tinyorange,
Glad that you guys liked it!!
Regarding the videos, the code should work if you maintain the folder structure like the images, since it will get everything after the folder, but I didnt tested since rpi2 is so fast that I feel unnecessary to put video intros!!
Also I cannot merge the retropie splashs into my repo, that’s why I choose to ‘merge’ using the same folder, so no matter what you put there or version that you have of retropie it will work anyways!
I’ll spare some time to add the new splashs here in the forum today!herbfargusMember08/20/2015 at 21:43Post count: 1858
I changed the code so that by default video splashscreens will play all the way through before emulationstation loads rather than emulationstation cutting it off. You just need to update your setup script and re-enable auto starting emulationstation from option 3 in the setup script. It will be integrated in future releases.retroman33Participant11/28/2015 at 01:49Post count: 19
I’ve just installed this script, and it has basically broken any splash screen functionality on my system. I get the Loading Failed text on the bottom left hand side of the screen when the splash screen should be present.
Is there a a simple script written to remove this process?sur0xParticipant11/28/2015 at 02:06Post count: 54retroman33Participant11/28/2015 at 02:11Post count: 19
This has to be the fastest response ever! You are awesome.
I’d actually like to solve the issue rather than delete, as your project is one of the most exciting aspects of my system if I can get it working.
I am on the latest 3.2.1, which I saw wasn’t the 3.1 you stated is the latest build.
I have made numerous videos that worked previous to the script, but cannot get them to load. I’ve placed the videos in the folder that you’ve created, the supp folder, and the config folder that emulationstation provides for loading your own. I’ve rerun the setup_splash.sh after doing so. Can’t get videos or the pictures to load.sur0xParticipant11/28/2015 at 02:57Post count: 54sur0xParticipant11/28/2015 at 03:48Post count: 54retroman33Participant11/28/2015 at 04:12Post count: 19
Will give it a crack right now, stay tuned!retroman33Participant11/29/2015 at 04:59Post count: 19
Apologies for the late reply, dealing with my wifes pregnancy at the moment. I’ve updated and it works perfectly. However, I’ve deleted all the static images and replaced them with 5 movies in the same folder structure, in their own folders. When I restart I am still receiving the same static art images you’ve inserted. Do I need to reupdate the script now that I’ve replaced items?retroman33Participant11/29/2015 at 05:05Post count: 19
Just tried to update, and see what happened. Still getting the images rather than the videos i’ve embedded. Thinking perhaps I have not placed them in the correct folder.
I have them in home/pi/splashscreens
They are also in home/pi/retropiesplashscreens/splashscreens
Also in home/pi/Retropie/Splashscreens
All three locations have the movies only. Still getting the images popping up instead even though to my knowledge they should be deleted.
It’s kicking my brain, but still fun.retroman33Participant11/30/2015 at 07:44Post count: 19
Just realised they will be in the supplementary folder,as suggested above in a previous post. Will try it out soon.bitbytepixelspriteParticipant12/02/2015 at 01:36Post count: 51
Could someone explain a bit if I wanted to add or replace some of the splash screens that it randomizes. I saw sur0x’s comment toward the top but it’s going right over my head.
Does the script need to know the list of splash screens or does it simply pull at random from a folder? Thank you!sur0xParticipant12/02/2015 at 03:09Post count: 54bitbytepixelspriteParticipant12/02/2015 at 06:05Post count: 51
Perfect, thank you. I thought that was what you were stating. Would I need to run the set up once more after I change the screens? Or will it just pull at random from the folder?sur0xParticipant12/02/2015 at 08:24Post count: 54bitbytepixelspriteParticipant12/03/2015 at 01:24Post count: 51
Just to check would I need to create a individual folder for each image I add?bitbytepixelspriteParticipant12/03/2015 at 03:04Post count: 51
Ok I tried to remove some of the screens that came with the tool, and they are still in rotation. I did so by deleting their folders from retropiesplashscreen is this not the correct place to add or remove from? I did not see any files in RetroPie/splashscreens
Btw sur0x you are great! Thank you for all the help!
