----------------
Please edit the theme.rc if you do not have accelerated OpenGL!!!
replace "UseOpenGL = true" with "UseOpenGL = false" in that case, to get better frame rates.

Am a little bored right now, so I'd appeciate it if you gave me some suggestions for improvements...Thanks
=====================================

Hi guys,
this is my first thing I'm doing at KDE-Look.org.

Well, I got sick of the boring splash screens that come with KDE, so I designed a new one. The "Brilliant" Splash Screen. It features such cool gimmicks like alpha transparency, nuvola icons and other stuff (look at the screenshots).

Unfortunately I got to a point where I wanted to do some fancy stuff that was not supported by KSplash, so I had to write a new Theme plugin for KSplash. It is called "Flexible Theme".
You've got to install both. The plugin as well as the theme. From v0.3 on the plugin features abso'freakin'lutely spiffy animated alpha blends and fadeaway to your desktop. See yourself...

The Thread for the plugin is located at http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=20623

It really is Brilliant!! Nice work

PS I fixed the theme.rc and am sending it to you to upload as an update here

The options you included right in the theme.rc will be of great help to others... this is where people like Moodinwrad slipped.... noone has used such options because they don't know where, how, why, etc...
This clears a lot of that stuff up nicely

can't find that line to turn "false" in theme.rc.
i believed to have an openGL card, an Nvidia fx 5200, isn't it? everything else goes grat (included transparency)... but in the theme preview i can see only a blue square with some text going on....

Man - you are a total genius! This is an awesome splash screen. I love totally unnecessary eye-candy :-)

In your Theme.rc you put

BackgroundImage = background.png

but background.png is missing from the archive...
