    @Stupifier there's no determinate version for now :) You can make the text whatever you like, so you can show progress, but the graphics are all indeterminate right now.

    Sounds like you are considering a pleasant update for this Web Screen preset. Wonderful

    ......
    Just import the webscreen in AutoTools app... Then use a file explorer and navigate to the directory you quoted

    I used to simply place a WebView control on my scenes, set its Mode to URI, select an animated, transparent GIF as the Source, and voilá: I had a loading overlay screen that would prevent UI interaction with the controls beneath and I could time it through code. Now, my transparencies display as a black background that destroys my interface's pleasant look! I know you are providing in this post an alternative solution, but why is mine no longer feasible?

    I haven't changed anything related to that so it should still work I guess. When exactly did it stop working, do you know?
