Title: Request for "loading" screen
Post by: 9940 on 2009-Aug-22
Should be nice if we can modify (translate) the default "Loading..." message before our app start

Well, if you draw a screen and do a SHOWSCREEN right at the start of your code (ie before all of the sprites are loaded, arrays set up - that kind of thing) you hardly notice the "Loading" message at all...

Indeed - would be nice if it could be removed.

It would also be nice if the default font was a bit more readable too

I doubly agree - the font is awful and the "LOADING" screen is too.

Could make it optional!

It's not that hard to draw your own loading screen, just make sure that is the first thing you do in your program, then SHOWSCREEN and then you start loading your mediafiles. I think that is optional enough, this is a programming language after all :-)
