I know and many users have complained about this.
Note that the issue with splash screen being on top of confirmation dialogs has been fixed. (again for MM4)

Also are you aware of the /nosplash method?

Ah sorry, yeah I didn't notice at all. Ah well, that's disappointing, the splash screen is really starting to get to me :/ I wouldn't mind if it even properly went behind another program which has focus, but the fact that it stays in front is frustrating.

Look Closer at the entry. It's for MM4. Not for the current version.

work around.


put no splash in the command line of the shortcut to start monkey.

start monkey shrink to tray.
or micro player.

go on about your day to day stuff if you want to install mmip file or start song from in the folders by right clickin on it
then go ahead.
the splash screen won't show now cause monkey was already open.

We are looking into that. I raised issue to Jiri.

I'm disappointed that the priority has been set to low. :(

I checked the applications I'm using the most at the moment.
firefox,
media player classic
speccy
bittorrent
cdisplay
soulseek
ccleaner
None of them force me to have a splash screen.
MM is the only one that does!

Hello
A user complained in the french forum that he it's not possible to disable splash screen for the action:
rip a cd with mediamonkey from the autorun option.
He got an error message behind the splash screen and had to kill Mediamonkey in task Manager.
link to the thread: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 36#p272130

According to: http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=679
2. Don't show the splash screen when it isn't an ordinary MM start, e.g. when user starts playback of some files? Sounds like an interesting idea.
Would this apply to all non-ordinary starts? E.g the autorun induced starts?

Also see this related ticket: http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=6526

Thank you.

This solution is easy but nevertheless a workaround.
