The logo that is drawn is configured by setting the loader_logo variable in loader.conf(5) to one of "beastie", "beastiebw", "fbsdbw", "orb", and "orbbw" (the default).
The position of the logo can be configured by setting the loader_logo_x and loader_logo_y variables in loader.conf(5). The default values are 46 (x) and 4 (y).

The loader_delay variable can be configured in loader.conf(5) to the number of seconds you would like to delay loading the boot menu. During the delay the user can press Ctrl-C to fall back to autoboot or ENTER to proceed. The default behavior is to not delay.

|Sets the desired column position of the logo. Default is 46.|

|If set to "YES", the beastie boot menu will be skipped. The beastie boot menu is always skipped if running non-x86 hardware.|
|If set to a number higher than zero, introduces a delay before starting the beastie boot menu. During the delay the user can press either Ctrl-C to skip the menu or ENTER to proceed to the menu. The default is to not delay when loading the menu.|
