Gif as splash screen

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

Today I came across a minor problem, obviously occuring because I'm an idiot who overlooked something blatant. So please help me. This is my problem: I'm using a gif file as splash screen, but the gif animation won't appear - it just looks like a jpg file. What can I do to make the animated gif work?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
SplashImageOn("","splash.gif", 500, 400, -1, -1, -1)
sleep(6000)
SplashOff()

Why won't this work? :\

I am pretty sure that animated gifs are not supported.

Oh.... so that means I'll have to go another way around making a progress bar to go with my splash screen... :)

Might look at this http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=38549 for some alternatives.
