Eclipse 3.5 and FDT 3.2 for Actionscript development – Part 4 – Customization

1) Eclipse Splash Screen

There are two ways of changing the Eclipse splash screen, manually or using the Random Splash Screen plugin:

  • Manually
    Put the “splash.bmp” file in the folder C:\eclipse\ and add the following line to the file C:\eclipse\eclipse.ini:

    1
    2
    -showsplash
    splash.bmp
  • Random Splash Screen
    Everytime Eclipse starts, Random Splash Screen overwrites Eclipse’s splash screen with a random image picked from your personal image folder. This image is then displayed on the next Eclipse start.Website: http://sourceforge.net/projects/rndsplash/To modify the plugin options go in
