I apologize for any slow loading or navigation of this page you may experience. Each animation has a YouTube video embedded in this page below, and there are a lot.

Here are some console, handheld, and arcade machine boot screens.

Current list:
*NEW 3/19/13*
- Added Sharp Twin Famicom Disk System. It's almost the same as the original Famicom Disk System, but with a different font!

*NEW 2/10/13*
- Added NEC PCEngine CD 1.00
- Added NEC PCEngine CD 2.00
- Added NEC PCEngine CD 2.10
- Added NEC PCEngine Super-CD 3.00
- Added NEC TurboGraphix-16 CD (2.00)
- Added NEC MagicSystem 3.00


*NEW 4/23*
- Added Sony PS Vita boot animation. It's rather bland, but that's what it looks like.

*NEW 4/22*
- Added Master System Beta/Prototype BIOS boot animation
- Added Dreamcast Dev unit BIOS boot animation


I have to apologize of the Dreamcast one, in order to make it resemble normal speed, I had to remove frames, so it looks rough. With all of the frames, it's nice and smooth, but it takes a long time to get through all the frames.

I also have to apologize for the shape of this thread. I did not intend on making so many of these, nor did I anticipate the 8 attachment limit per post.

All animations lack sound due to synchronization issues.

I'm always taking requests, so let me know.

OK. I can't upload this to any hosting site or even get it to show coming off of my own web server, so here are youtube videos:















































The bootscreens have black edges on top and bottom, to preserve the aspect ratio.

*The Sega CD/Mega CD/Wondermega/X-Eye animations simply have a loop of the color cycle. None of the movement was used as they animations would be too long. There are numerous other versions of these, but they do not have short animations that can be used for my purposes here. I did not produce a Japanese version because... It's rather boring. All it had was the aforementioned animation, no color cycling.

Is there a tutorial anywhere on how to make these? I promise I've tried searching.

Many. Here's the gist:

Get your image(s) as PNG files together in a folder. Make sure they are numbered at the end of the filename. Make a desc.txt file with a text editor that will save in ASCII/UNIX mode, like Notepad++, regular Notepad will not do this. Grab one of my bootscreens for a template desc.txt. Put that folder and desc.txt in a ZIP file with NO compression. 7-ZIP works well for this. Name it bootanimation.zip(or sanim.zip for 2.3/Gingerbread roms) and put in /system/media.

I looked around, but the only Atari system I could find with a boot animation was the Jaguar. My experience with Atari does not exceed the 2600, so if you can tell which system you're referring to, I can attempt it.

It will work on any Galaxy S variant, and anything WVGA.

You had to say the D-word...

I pulled the Saturn screens from an emulator, which I use to get the cleanest quality image I can. The Dreamcast emulators I've tried to capture the boot screen from have resulted in less-than-exemplary output. I will attempt it again, and look into the Gamecube intro.
