We have made several changes thanks to the many people who gave feedback during the last preview. The new system allows you to easily add multiple logos such as own company, publisher and game logos as a splash screen shown when your project is launched. Take a look at the video below to see this feature in action:
We're really excited and can't wait to see what your splash screens look like. So what does this mean for you when using Unity 5.5?
You will have the choice to:
You’ll have the same splash screen tools as everyone else, but we’ll include the Made With Unity co-branding, positioned either below, or sequentially with your branding design.
For all Unity users, the new splash screen tools now feature a range of easy to configure options: You can choose whether to display a dark or light Made with Unity branding and your company logo on sequential screens or combined on a single screen, and whether to use an image or a solid colour as a background. You also have the option to show several logos on sequential screens, for instance a publisher logo followed by a developer logo. And lastly, you can choose between a static logo or a dolly animation, or opt to define the custom parameters of the logo animation using the Logo Duration, Logo Zoom, and Background Zoom properties.
We wanted to get the splash screen out early so we can get feedback which means
there is still some work to do during the beta period and a few unresolved issues.
