Changing PyCharm splash screen

I wish to customize the PyCharm splash screen image.

 

Changing the bmp in the pycharm.exe and pycharm64.exe files changes the initial splash screen, but when the loading bar starts, something else is causing the original splash screen to show again with the loading bar. I've been experimenting by unpacking the *.jar files and modified the following:

 

pycharm_core_logo.png

pycharm_core_logo@2x.png

pycharm_core_about.png

pycharm_core_about@2x.png

 

However, none of those have made any change that I've been able to notice. Can anyone point me in the right direction and save me the trouble of decompiling the *.class files to follow execution and figure out what's causing that original splash image to return halfway through the loading?
