Port to Bforartists - change Splash image

I have no idea what the Blender developers did here. The splash screen is currently unchangeable. No splash.c file anymore, no datatoc.py anymore.

There is no info in the internet to find. The pages are removed. Just a vague information that the conversion "should" happen automatically now with the compile. Which does simply not happen. The 2.78 splash is nailed.

All that is known is that the change must have happened between 2.76b and 2.78. Seems that i have no other choice than to go through all commits to find the baddie. Finding the needle in the haystack ...

The splashscreen is defined in wm_operators.c

Got it. The key is to rerun Cmake once you have modified the splash.png and splash_2x.png files. Cmake is where the conversion of the files happens. And that's why nothing happens when you just modify the files.

So modify the png files, clear cache in Cmake, configure in Cmake, generate in Cmake, then compile again.
