I am using a Macintosh so I start GnuBG from Terminal.app or an xterm window. Bat files are Windows things right? I hadn't thought to try the -S option as it used to say "Don't" show gtk splash screen and I hadn't realized that it had been changed. Thank you for the explanation. Is there a way to set that option in my ~/.gnubgrc file?

Splash screens are good for complicated applications that take a long
time starting. For GNU backgammon we have to delay the startup in
order for it to work reasonably well. You may however turn it on by
adding a -S flag to the call of gnubg in the bat file.

Hello Developers,
                                  I was wondering what happened to the
splash screen. Will it be back in the program at some point? I remember a brief discussion about it here on the list but I don't remember if you had decided to remove it permanently or not. I like the splash screen and I hope that you decide to bring it back at some point. I don't know how difficult it would be to implement, but perhaps there could be an option to turn the splash screen on or off. There could be a check box in the display tab of the options panel for this. Then users who prefer no splash screen could
turn it off.
                                                       Take care,
