Setting up Android Launch Screens

If you would like to have a custom launch screen for your Android project, support is available inside the Project Settings under the Platforms/Android/Launch Images section of your project. You can set the background, portrait, or landscape images used as well as whether or not the feature is enabled/disabled (refer to the table below for more information).
