I'm getting tired of seeing Jim Raynor's face every time I launch Starcraft 2. Is there a way to change the image without violating the games EULA? If so, is there a website that has preconfigured images we can use?

It sure is hot in this suit!

    Keep in mind: every modification of game files violates the EULA and can result in a permanent banned account!

  • @F.S. That's good point. In fact, I removed the mod tag from your question cowgod. I don't think we should be providing answers which would violate the games EULA, which a mod would do. I've also edited your question to make it clear that answers violating the EULA should not be posted.

    So, how many people are planning to buy Diablo III after seeing the EULA restrictions in StarCraft II? Vote with your wallet, folks.

    Not to worry, you've only got a few more months to wait til HotS changes your loading page.

To replace the image you would need to modify the game files, just like when you want to replace any other images.

The picture you are looking for is Assets\Textures\startupimage.dds in the Starcraft II\Mods\Core.SC2Mod\base.SC2Assets.mpq file. Modifying this file is probably against the EULA and can cause all kinds of trouble, so it's recommended to keep on looking at Raynor while the game loads.
