Review #1026: Good by boog2006 on Fri Dec 07, 2007 12:29 pm

Color Clash

This should have been the background that came with 46. However, the red/black background doesn't look right with the blue menu backgrounds. If there was a way to change the menu background color to red (if there is I'm sorry), it would be great.

I did like the icon.

1946 background, icon and Wallpaper

I have set this up both as the Wallpaper on my Desktop and as Background for use in the sim and they look absolutely superb, much better than the old Pacific Fighters Background.

Thanks for making these available.
