Take a good look at the contents of your .zip file. In the other topic you created it was suggested the problem is in your splash screen images.


Are the file names you specified in the config.xml and packed in the .zip identical? No difference in upper & lower case letters?


You should be able to isolate weather it's the foreground or background image giving problems (specify both to be the same to test this out)


Try another image and see weather it works then. Maybe the images you supplied are not processable, maybe due by an incompatible compression schema. Load them in a simple image editor and save in another format, e.g. .jpeg instead of .gif / .png.
