Why can't I remove the Splash Screen from my build?

Symptoms

  • I want to remove the 'Made with Unity' Splash Screen from my build
  • I am unable to remove the Unity Splash Screen from my project

Cause

The 'Made with Unity' Splash Screen plays while your game is loading. You may want to insert a custom splash screen, or remove the splash entirely.

Resolution

Personal Edition Users:

Personal Edition (free) users are unable to remove the Unity Splash Screen from projects.

Plus and Pro Users:

If you have a Unity Plus or Pro license, you can remove the Unity Splash Screen through this process:

  1. Open your project in Unity and Click 'Edit'
  2. Click 'Project Settings' and then 'Player' in the menu that appears next.
  3. In the Inspector tab, you will see a new section called 'Splash Image'

4. Click on the box next to 'Show Unity Splash Screen' to remove the Unity Splash Screen.

Please note that if you are building to Android, you must have a splash screen for your build, whether the Unity Splash Screen, or a personal one, or both. Without a splash image, the Android build will not work.

More Information

We are working on a new, customisable Splash Screen, which will available soon. For more information, please see this Blog post.

    This doesnt seem to work when building for WebGL.  We get an initial  progress loader with a unity logo.  Disabling this in the player settings does not appear to work.  If we build for mobile platforms, the setting is being observed correctly

    "Please note that if you are building to Android, you must have a splash screen for your build, whether the Unity Splash Screen, or a personal one, or both. Without a splash image, the Android build will not work."

    Is this still correct? I disabled the splash screen completely on unity 2018.3 and it works on Android just fine.

    I'm having the same problem Bilal had in the last post, I upgraded to plus 2 days ago and the show splash screen checkbox is still disabled. I checked and my editor has the plus license applied so do I need to do anything else?

    I am having the same problem with my Plus account.  Also collaborate broke and can't get a ticket created for collaborate to help get our project going again. Can't get anything but an automated reply from Unity.

    Hey Cog, so I got my problem fixed by Unity, with plus I think it takes a few days to get a reply but they replied to mine and the fix was pretty easy. When I upgraded I saw the new plus license appear inside my editor so I assumed it had been applied to my editor. I had to click on "manual activation" and then type in my license key and it instantly gave me the dark theme and splash screen was removable, etc. So your account and some things get upgraded automatically but your actual editor needs to be activated with the key. Hope this helps.
