I'm not really a big fan of the new splash screen in the latest update. Is there a way to disable it?  Or can you add a feature to disable it when it starts with Windows only?

    Same opinion here.  I want Precision to load with Windows, but don't need the splash screen in my face as it loads.  Please provide an option to disable it.  If there is one hidden somewhere, I could not find it.

    You can just delete the BMP image of the Loading Screen from the PrecisionX_x64.exe file if you have a resource editor program like Restorator 2007. That's what I've done and now there's no more Loading Screen when PrecisionX OC starts.

    It feels as if EVGA hired a GUI developer laid off by AOL Chat to design this Precision version.

    I dunno, but 'pretty' is not what I need.
    And I also seem to be having trouble with 6.2.4 not properly loading my fan profile on launch either.  I have to click on the saved profile to get the fans to ramp up to the full speed I have mapped after a reboot.  That is more vexing than the splash screen.  And I have checked and deleted all old profiles that were saved in the Precision XOC folder.  It is simply not working correctly.

    Worked great.

    Thanks a lot for the idea! However I don't this exe. I have "PX18.exe"  and "PXSW10_x64.exe" Neither of which seems to have the .bmp.

    Guys I found a workaround. You need a program called dnSpy.
    0. Backup your PX18.exe just in case.
    1. Start dnSpy as admin (X1 must be off ofc) and open the PX18.exe. Navigate to PX18.exe\Resources\PX18.g.resources
    You will see (actually this is after step 4, I'm lazy to revert it.)

    2. Right click on splashscreen.png and click on Save Raw.
    3. Open the .png file with photoshop or perhaps even paint. Remove the splashcreen and save the file. It will be basically an empty .png. 
    4. Now Right click on splashscreen again and click on Edit Resources. From the 3 dots right of "data" choose the modified .png from previous step. 
    5. Click on PX18(0.3.19.0), then File -> Save Module.
    6. Enjoy splashfree windows boot :D.
