Yes it is. I'll be a Princess and live in my Star Castle.

Actually its a wallpaper from one of the many tallented CG artists on CGwallpaper.com I'm using it as I'm playing Shivering Isles. I always change my wallpaper to match the main game I'm playing.

Mine. With Mac OSX wallpaper lol. Love the gears of war icon. Disabled transparency saves resources and saves a headache after a while.

No offense but can you guys either crop the ****ing GIGANTIC images or use a host such as imageshack which provides a clickable thumbnail?

If you can take the time and effort to just slap a travesty such as what you guys have done, I am sure you have the time and (a stretch here) brain power to actually use tools that don't take up the whole bloody screen.

Get a bigger monitor.


OK. I'll keep what you said in mind for next time

I always liked the bigger images. When I would scroll down them, I could see what it would look like on my desktop.

This is on my working laptop. It has resolution of 1280x800. The screen there is not as bright as my ViewSonic and green looks somewhat darker and less 'dense' too, so - on laptop wallpaper doesnt irritate eyes at all.



Dont have Vista on my main rig yet, waiting for 8800gts to arrive first (should have it in 2-3 weeks). Main rig desktop will come later )...

That's why you have clickable thumbnails that open in full. :smoker:
