How to change the SWTOR boot up loading screen image

Are you tired of looking at the same SWTOR screen when you load your game? Do you wish you could do something fun or creative with the screen or find something better to look at for those few seconds while you wait for the game to load? Well, you’re going to get a kick out of this little bit of info we found (because we definitely did).

This just in:

That’s right! You can change the image that the loading screen uses when you first boot up to the game!
To do this, go into your program files and find your Star wars the old republic folder. From there got to the file path:
 
swtor>retailclient>LoadingScreens 
and add any .JPG file to the folder and simply rename it LoadingScreen and you’re finished!
Enjoy!
 

Here’s a thread on Reddit that shows how to change the SWTOR boot up loading screen and also shows what some players have changed it to. We have to admit that this is really the best part of the whole thing. As one poster says “My friends’ loading screens are not safe”.

Just think of all the fun you can have with this…
