script type
By default, (g)vim displays a splash screen when starting with no editfile, or in response to the ":intro" command. This plugin makes the splash screen appear at startup in all cases, even when started with one or more "filename" arguments.
install details
Just drop this file in the after/plugin subdirectory of the directory named *last* in the 'runtimepath' option. For instance, its full path will typically become (as seen by the shell)

- on Linux: ~/.vim/after/plugin/zzsplash.vim

- on Windows: %HOME%\vimfiles\after\plugin\zzsplash.vim


Note: If you want it to work even on versions of Vim with no expression evaluation, add the following at the very end of your vimrc:

if 1
" come here only if expression evaluation is not compiled-in
runtime! plugin/zzsplash.vim
