I guess that's like a famicom thing? My snes was purple and grey colors. Still pretty cool though. How long do they need to be to skip the command screen?
It depends how many roms you have installed but usually above 25-30 seconds is a safe bet.
So.....how about something like.....your GameCube design with that music that transitions into the Nintendo logo with the old school coin grab noise....into kite's logo since it's his saio that is the main component in my system. I'll gladly pay ya like I did the bracket

I don't know if it fits your needs, but I made a similar animation with the sudomod logo when I was close to finishing my build:

Downloads and description are in my GBZ thread. You'll find the animation at the bottom of the first post.

By the way and just an idea: would be nice to get loaded any random splashscreen on bootup. Is this somehow possible?

Sure. The setting is only an entry in a configuration file. After each start a cronjob can change the string.

Or more easy, set config to ~/video.mp4 and replace the video on every start.

My snes n64 ps1 ps2 and gamecubes all had amazing splash screens on boot, it's something I miss about retro consoles.
Hardest part is the idea really. If you try to explain what exactly you want and how long it should be, I can try to make it. :)
Do you still have the ability to make a splash screen? I've been wanting to get one like the TMNT arcade game. Any ideas?
