@Einstein: Can you test the latest version (r7689)? If you see the issue there, but not in r7681, we almost know the revision that introduced the misbehavior.

I've tested r7689 on Win7 & Win10. Both were good. To specify: is splashscreen first screen with big "Widelands", sunshine and "press any key to continue"? I can see this screen in any mode (fullscreen & windowed one)

Yes, that's the one.

So, this is not a bug.

The question still remains though: do we want to keep the splash screen at all? We used to have loading screens in the same style, but we don't anymore, so I'm not sure if it still fits the UI style. Also, the main menu loads really fast, so the splash screen isn't needed for technical reasons.

I like the splashscreen, and i don't see why it is disturbing of do one click more if you are hurry to go on menu.

From my point of view it would be pity if the splash screen won't be shown at startup. Starting the game and the main menu appears immediately isn't a nice start.

The most boring thing is the static image where nothing happens.

Maybe a short animation would be great... which could be skipped with a click/press a button.

I think that splash screen should stay in this way. Maybe in the future it will be very needed (for example somebody will create good intro movie and we will replace the screen?)
