If you build it yourself you can simply change the file images/background_hd.jpg or when you’re bold you can replace that image inside the asar archive in the packaged app.
you might need to unpack and repack that file using https://github.com/electron/asar . (I have not tried that route so I would recommend the “compile it yourself” route.)

PS: If you really want it, feel free to try implementing it and opening a pull request. :wink:
