    Unity devs, one more thing that may be important, happened to me as a consequence of this new Splash implementation.

    On main MainCamera Start method i use RenderTexture to create some dynamic textures. With the new Splash, Start is called without a GL context, so the RenderTexture gets black. I had to add a yield to wait on frame to do this. The splash is closing too soon and passing control to the app too soon.

    Estimates please? Nothing new happened! 10% of sessions crashing due this issue!

    Thanks for reopening this. Fingers crossed for a speedy resolution.

    Won't fix?
    So now everyone building for Android with hi-res splash screens will spend a few extra hours searching for a crash that you could avoid.
    That's part of the Android pipeline now.
    I guess part of Unity's job is to resize the splash screen accordingly for each device.

    So we can't have a static splash that's at or above the native resolution of an average modern device?

    I'm already starting to notice Unity games live on the app store that are booting up to blank screens because they can't build with a static splash anymore. This either needs to get fixed, or we need an option to disable background blur on the new splash screens so that we can recreate a normal static splash.
