    Hey guys,

    So has anyone found a way to put an animation in the loading (start) screen? Buildbox by default doesn't let you :(

    I have an animation for my logo, and it looks pretty awesome. ;)

    Thanks!

    Yea you can't do it LOL.
    But i have seen a game where the loading screen was plain then they created a UI as a second loading screen, then go from there.

    help yourself.

    Get your Bbdoc ready, and send it to them, choose project size and choose your own programmer :)

    Something else besides the animated home screen would also be able to put video to the games.

    How? Because then you would have to press a button or something to go to the next scene, right?

    I thought you could drag in animation frames into a UI menu, (your logo frames), then copy/paste them using Ctrl-C/V from that UI into the loading screen UI?

    "Start" UI is for loading screens, these are static and required (you can leave them empty). If you want animation you need to use another UI that plays after the "Start" UI. In the future there may be more flexibility with this and possibly the animation can play sooner, but the static start screens will always remain to some extent. It's required on mobile (at least for iOS).
