How to make custom loading screens?

So, I am currently working on my Full Conversion mod named "The Elder Sign: The Asylum" and I want to create my own loading screen (everytime you go through a level_hub door)

Basically it says on default "Loading..."

But how do I make it say something else, and with a different background image like this: (but with text ofcourse, taken from La Caza)

Much appreciated if anyone could help me.

void SetupLoadScreen(string&asTextCat, string&asTextEntry, int alRandomNum, string&asImageFile);

This?

RE: How to make custom loading screens?

I don't know if it is this what you are exactly asking, but here:

void SetupLoadScreen(string&asTextCat, string&asTextEntry, int alRandomNum, string&asImageFile);

Determines which loading screen will be shown when changing maps.

asTextCat - the category of the loading text in the .lang file to be shown on the loading screen
asTextEntry - the entry in the .lang file
alRandomNum - if greater 1, then it will randomize between 1 and alRandom for each LoadScreen giving entry the suffix XX (eg 01). If < =1 then no suffix is added
asImageFile - the image to be shown (optional)

RE: How to make custom loading screens?

Yeah, Tanshaydar has it right. Just put that function in your onLeave section like this

void OnLeave()
{
SetupLoadScreen(string&asTextCat, string&asTextEntry, int alRandomNum, string&asImageFile);
}

You can also put multiple ones and it will choose a loading screen at random (I believe, it might be a different function though, but it's similar)
