Large background image causing Memory Allocation Error
« on: April 12, 2012, 01:57:49 AM »
Having moved to a 2650x1440 resolution screen, I naturally set Chameleon to its native res and set a lovely fullscreen wallpaper.

Upon rebooting I was presented with this (and an unbootable system):



The file I used was 4.2MB in size. I tried resizing it down bit by bit until it became apparent that the largest filesize that can be used without that error is around 3.8MB.

In the end I had to save it as an 8-bit PNG in Photoshop which gave a 3.2MB file and a working bootloader.

It's not that big a deal right now as I'm using a monochrome background and frankly I can't see 2560x1440 becoming a common resolution any time soon, but it would be nice to be able to use full colour, native resolution backgrounds in the future.
