Idea: MOODE Startup Spashscreen
#14
OK, my Element14 model of the Raspberry Pi 7in touchscreen arrived and is now installed on an RPi3B+.

For grins, I took the same version 0 code demonstrated previously, created an appropriately sized moOde splash image, and tried it on the 7in touchscreen.

You can see the result in another slightly less bad video on YouTube. Again ignore odd color rendition from my cellphone camera/software, especially the lovely blue bloom of the LED backlight when the camera can't find a color reference point.

There are far fewer visual artifacts with this display than we saw on the 3.5in LCD display HAT.  I think that's due both to the different interface (dsi vs hdmi) and to the different firmware in the two devices.

To me, the only seriously annoying artifact is the 2s flash of white screen before the moOdeUI kicks in, which I believe is due to the X11 server startup. I haven't found any hints online yet which help.

There's still that ca 10s blank screen at startup but it will take serious recoding to deal with it. Manaña, maybe.

If this looks usable to anyone, I'll put my code and splash image along with a short writeup on github and post a link to it in the FAQ and Guides section.

Regards,
Kent
