A quick script for randomly changing the startup image for 3ds max, it is a nice way to make Max feel nice and cozy.
I have seen other ones out there, but they require additional software, and have more complicated installations, so I made this one for me.
1. Unzip all files to a folder
2. run install.bat
if the folder structure of your max installation is different, simply copy the contents of $Scripts to your 3dsmax/scripts/ folder.
I have provided 2 splash images, but you can add as many, named whatever you like. Just put them in the /max/scripts/splashes/ folder. They will need to be a .bmp But they can be whatever resolution or aspect ratio you desire.
