looks good.  One minor note might be to lighten the text as the background darkens?

Also, is there a size restriction on that image, or can we make it smaller if we want to?  I feel that it is rather large, but then again I am on a small screen Tablet PC.

thanks Ltan  smiley
the picture could be made smaller without it getting messed up I think, useing the program paint.net should do the trick.
I'll see what can be done about the background text  Thmbsup

I was going to tackle this issue at some point  tongue

Thanks so much, we definitely need a better graphic to be sure, and this is great

Let us know when you are done  Thmbsup

I might suggest, but do not know how this image would come out indexed, but the three dots after the wording, if they could light up one at a time, kinda like a download monitor...

ie:
100
010
001
100
010
001
and so one....
I do not even know the possibility of this with the wonderful gradient you used, converting to a GIF File may damage the end product  Cry
I hope I am making sense, as the drugs are kicking my butt  embarassed

my options in making a animation were very limited, but I got 2 examples for ya.

one is a gif image but i lost my edge smoothing in this so it may not be a good choice.  Sad



the other is a new format to me it is a moving PNG which is a MPG. I was pretty excited when i found this type but don't know if it is supported, if so then there ya go. Thmbsup

I hate to spoil your fun but if you're wanting me to replace the current "Loading Settings ..." with something a bit more arty, then I should tell you that the text is not fixed but language-dependent!

Oh and the graphic needs to be a PNG (with alpha-channel transparency), not a GIF, APNG or MPNG.

I was just trying to help. I'm currently not a good programmer, and thought i'd submit some graphics to be of some use for ya.

However I do have a new graphic for ya though.  smiley
