3. For the sake of novelty, I'd like to see my own artwork, and change it when I desire something different.
etc... etc... etc...
I used to be able to open a .mpq file (in older games) and extract images (.jpg, .bmp, etc.), modify them with CorelPaint, and resave them. It's been too many years since I've done that, so my memory is vague on even how I did it. Heh heh.
Anyway, I don't see the harm -- even potential harm, from editing a static opening screen image.
It would be just for viewing on my local system during game boot-up and could not interfere with the game-play itself.
Can it be done? Anybody know how I can do it? It's on my own machine.
