Any feedback is welcome
Can you actually select your own backgroud image for the Modern start screen? If so i will give this a try tonight and let you know if there are any issues. Thanks for your work on this i am not the biggest fan of the preset backgrounds.

With a program it's very difficult, because there is a system file to edit. I'll give a try
I think too that the default backgrounds are bad

@AsakuraVN Have you installed a LP?

@All I find a solution to edit a startscreen background with custom background. After some test, developing and more test, maybe i can bubblish the new version with this function.

You mean a language pack? Then no, Im using a clean install of RTM. Might try again later

Looking forward to your new version with custom background though xD

The 2.0 version is almost finished. I need some tester before publish, because the editing of imageres.dll wasn't much stable (though the problems was resolved). One never know
Please contact me with a MP to test the application.
Thanks and sorry for the bad english
