Alright - while I am perfectly aware of Rons posting concerning they "will not offer help or support for any problems caused by a modified .exe file", I have decided to ask one or the other question in this thread, that neither I nor my supporters are able to answer or solve.

OFC I cannot (and do not) expect any help from the Jeffs or MC, but maybe they'll change their mind on one or the other issue, or somebody else might be able to give useful hints.

I'll start with these two:

a) where / how is the version number shown on the splashscreen stored? I'd like to change colour, font and maybe add the release candidate version number (yes, I can do that via bitmaps, but that won't let me get rid of the original insert). Especially in case of 2.6jrc4 the colour is just... strange.

b) in 2.6, how do I ensure the splashscreen keeps its resolution (like in the retail version) rather than popping to desktop size? Interesting enough, in 2.7 the resolution required for the title graphics is 640*480, while in 2.6 it is 800*600, explaining the difference in file size.

TIA to anybody willing to help.
