Actually, the file contains several nice backgrounds, 31 in total to be precise.
But yeah, I agree with Beka and Logi, the third one is rather disturbing and probably not the best promotion.

Well, I just looked through the archive and see that you did a very good job on the editing side. Congrats.

Talking about the content of the pics... well it really seems to me that you're into some kind of "girls & guns" fetish. I dunno, but somehow it doesn't fit well into my playing-experience... :kettle:

Ive been trying to create my own .pcx files for a desktop background but either get errors or the image comes up as colored static. Is there a proper way to set up the file in PS, does it have to be a specific size. How do you begin creating your own?

Actually figured it out. You can take any image make sure your image is W 506 x H 428 and in Photoshop change the mode to index color. Then save as DESKTOP.PCX and boom, new wallpaper. I took mine and combined it with the LaptopUI for Jagged alliance 2 by GreenEyes, but I ended up editing that as well with a new logo and green blinking lights instead of blue. I would upload the files but cant because im new here and links are disabled...also uploading. so when I can, I will.
