Default BlueStacks Beta - editing the "boot" animation

Hi everyone,

I decided to create a quick guide and place to share your custom BlueStacks boot animations.

Quick Guide:

The boot or loading screen is made up of two different files. One is a static PNG image the other is a GIF animation. Both files are found in C:/ > Program Files (x86) > BlueStacks and can be replaced.

Step one: Quit BlueStacks and use task manager to ensure there are no BlueStacks processes running.

Step two: Go to the directory above and copy and paste the files "ProductLogo" and "loading" to a convenient location to back them up.

Step three: Search the internet for fun new replacement files and edit as needed (or create your own).

Step four: Rename the files to reflect the original file's name and place them in the BlueStacks folder.

*restart BlueStacks and enjoy*

The animation (Dysgenic (Modified by aph)) and image (tenet421 ) I am using currently:

Edit: Thanks to rocketero,

We have a new home button image.


Go to C:>Program Files (x86)>BlueStacks and use the same process as above. The image will be called "HomeButton".

If you have another cool button post it here.

This isn't an animation I created for BlueStacks but I wanted to share anyway just to get opinions

It was created with some editing and splicing of other users boot animations.

Its alright, but to busy, I went for an easy look, that won't waste resources running, and it wouldnt look right in that small area since its a full screen (phone) animation

Also there is glitch mostly cause you didnt remove the files after the android explodes

I created it for my wife's phone specifically. There is actually supposed to be flashing between the android exploding and the particle ring effect but it does look odd.

I'm working on a new one now

New one's up if anyone cares to have a look



Edit: I resized the image to fit in BlueStacks, removed the "Droid" logo, and made the end loop longer so it plays until BlueStacks boots
