The Passionately Casual Tip of the Week:  JT shares an excellent tip for customizing  your SWTOR splash screen

Make your own game loading screens!

rainer5511 from Reddit posted a layered PSD file. This will give you the layers which have the BioWare and SWTOR logos.

Don’t have Photoshop, no worries. Thanks to UA guildmate Mox and Pixlr editor you can open the file.

Here is the link for the PSD template file: (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20912690/LoadingScreen.wip.psd)

 

  1. If you have Photoshop, click on the link and download the PSD template file.
  2. If you do not have Photoshop, right-click on the file link, then copy the link location.
  3. Next you will you open the link for Pixlr and select open file from url. It will ask for the address of the file. Paste the address in the file address space.
  4. Now the file is open, go to the layer labelled Ponies. Delete the image in this layer and then add whatever image you want. Be sure the new image layer is in below the SWTOR & BioWare logos.
  5. Now, you will need to save the image as a jpg. file and name the file LoadingScreen.jpg and then replace the image found in the following location: Program files/Electronic Arts/Bioware/Star Wars – The Old Republic/swtor/retailclient/LoadingScreens

 

*make sure to rename the existing LoadingScreen file to something else. This will allow you to place it back as the Loading screen at a later time. Also note, that if there is an expansion or named update like Forged Alliances the Loading Screen image might be altered by update*

 

Please note that this is altering a file in your game folders. This has the chance of causing issues with your loading screens files. Be sure to back-up these files. PC is not responsible for any issues. This is to be done at your own risk. That is what our attorneys wanted us to say.
