[ADDED] Hide the splash screen.
« on: April 15, 2012, 16:52:18 »
If it's already included, then I must be blind. ;D. I suggest an option to hide the splash screen when Multi Commander is being opened.

I agree with this suggestion. I recommend to put this option to the menu or configuration where we can enable or disable this feature.

In the latest beta Build  1080 it should be possible to hide it by adding the registry key HideSplash


Reg Path       : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MultiCommander\
Reg Key/Value  : "HideSplash"  REG_DWORD - value "1"

If the reason for registry setting is to check parameter before parsing config files, then for portable version there could be a check for file existance. E.g. if zero-size file "nosplash" exists then hide splash.

When running in portable mode, and it reads from registry , It then reads from one of the .ini files under SessionConfig\ instead

It should work to add "HideSplash=1" to the file "SessionConfig\Config\MultiCommander.ini"  "SessionConfig\Misc\MultiCommander.ini"

(Should have been /Config/ , Might be moved to the file under /Config/ in final version. )
