That depends on how much coffee you have in your cup when it tips over.

So far I have only seen the main one, I know the Mike Hanel on the unofficial Bibleworks blog posted one other that he had in his Beta version, but I have not seen that one yet.

Noticed that one of the splash screens is blank. Has the pic, but says nothing about BibleWorks. I would assume not on purpose.

Hey...where is the COFFEE splash screen! I haven't seen it yet...and we all know that coffee is the official beverage of heaven!!! ;)

Someone who is really curious and has a few minutes of time can try this out. In general I believe the splash screens are not "randomized," rather they change according to the time on your system clock. So you could try to figure out the different splash screens by changing your system clock and opening BibleWorks. I think there are at least half a dozen, but I haven't kept an exact count.

The bonus "fun" splash screen happens for a limited time after 6pm, from 6:00 to 6:05 I believe.

Michael, I do miss the man on the horse at 6:00 pm from BW8. My grandkids liked him too.

So far my splash screens do not change, I even adjusted my system clock to see if that would make a difference, yet even at 6pm, this is what I got.

I can't tell you how much I hate proving myself wrong, but just now I did get another splash screen. I will continue to search out others.

That was on purpose. It is a nice splashscreen so we didn't mess it up with shamless product promotion.

The best screen by far is from 6:00 to 6:05. Can anyone guess what it is?

Hey, how come I haven't seen the coffee one yet! It's a conspiracy! :D

I've seen six so far. However, I don't seem to be able to discern a pattern. Once I closed the program and immediately opened it back up again and got the same splash screen. When I did that a second time, I got a different splash screen. However when I did it the third time, I got the first splash screen. I know! I know! I shouldn't allow my fascination with these splash screens to hinder my task of focusing on the text! By the way, I wonder if that beverage is a Coke or a Pepsi?

Would, that by any chance be this SplashScreen?

Between 6:00 to 6:05 I think, BUT.. actually it tends to appear the first time I start BibleWorks in the evening without regard to time!
I will check more carefully, and get back to on this.
