    So a few of you know I've divulged into the world of boot animations.
    The initial RedRum one that I made, with the blood drops, was...eh...ok I guess for the first one.

    View HERE

    The second one I made with the wavy background and lighting effects was a lot better, IMO. But still not 'techy' enough.

    View HERE


    But neither of those first two were really catching my eye. Cool colors, fading in and out, high-intensity graphics...blah.
    I feel sometimes 'more' isn't necessarily 'better'.
    Designing Flash websites and animations is a hobby of mine.
    So I went back to the basic idea that 'less is more'.

    I'm going to be setting up a page on my server dedicated to boot animations created by me with previews of all that have been finished.
    Links will be added for people to download whichever one they want to try out.

    Of course most of them will be Team Chaos themed as I love this ROM that Adrynalyne and bgill have compiled. IMO the most stable ROM I've used to date. And considering I've had Redrum on my phone for almost a month now, that speaks volumes!


    So to start of this new 'era' of boot animations, here is a quick preview of the newest "less is more" creations:

    Preview: Industrial CHAOS!
    Here is one I made awhile back and totally forgot about.
    It's pretty, but looks a little grainy on the phone.
    Not worthy for something on an official ROM...but cool nonetheless.

    Carl, Just effin WOW! Fun to watch even. Does the text actually relate to the boot process? Just curious. Doesn't matter if it doesn't actually.

    Thanks to everyone for the compliments :)
    It took some time, but I got this thing tackled now ;)


    I wish it did, but no, its just text I added. A 'simulation' I guess.


    I watched it in total darkness in my bedroom last night. Even blew me away. Glad you like it :)

    That animation is freakin sweet! You gotta slow down though...I can't keep up...I just get happy with one boot animation and you come up with another one!

    Same thing, just different color?
    Should be relatively easy.
    What exactly is 'deep blue' to you?
    Send me a PM with a color swatch or something close and I can match it.


    :D

    Don't worry, they won't outpace the ROMs. But with Redrum, you won't need another ROM, so I guess it will outpace them lol.
    I have a tentative schedule to have a new one about every other week. Or until my ideas run dry and/or I'm swamped with custom/personalized BAs.
    Which are surprisingly mounting.

    An idea floating around about a boot switcher may be under consideration ;)

    Been experimenting with that idea the last two days.
    Unfortunately the phone doesn't seem to like gold/yellow colors in the boot animation.
    What's weird is that all the .pngs that are generated look great and right on color. But when the phone loads it, it fades out the color something horrible! Turns it into a pale yellow color. I tried using .pngs and .jpgs. Still looks like crappy.
    Bgill wanted this done as well so I will work on it for a little while longer.
    But the chances are looking pretty slim as of right now.
    I don't want to release anything that is not up to par with the greatness of the overall ROM
