Splash screen


The splash screen is the image (usually a logo) displayed when your game starts. It fades in over the color you specify, then fades out.


The splash screen is only displayed when the game is built in release mode.

The default splash screen is the Stride logo.

You can only specify one splash screen in Game Settings. If you want to add more, you need to implement them manually.

Splash screen properties

Property Description
Texture The image (eg company logo) displayed as the splash screen. By default, this is StrideDefaultSplashScreen.
Color The color the splash screen fades in on top of. By default, this is black (#FF000000).

Additionally, you might want to disable streaming on the properties of the splash screen texture itself. This makes sure the texture is always loaded and displayed at the highest quality. For more information, see Textures > Streaming.
