    Number 4, Number 3 looks too much like those old B/W films that have been colorized.

    #1 Looks Best in Game :)
    People cannot really judge what a Screen will Actually look like when seen in the Game due to the way Colors and Contrasts are shown.
    ...even if a particular Image Looks better as just an Image...that does not mean it will look as Good as a Screen Title.

    I like 2 & 3. How well the menu choices read would decide me. It's really hard to tell from the reduced images. So I haven't voted yet.

    I like #3. Reminds me of some of the tea cards from the period.

    I have voted for #1 ,because it is the best compromise - not too colorful and not too much B&W.

    When I was putting these together, my first thought was to use #3 because it is an up close image showing more detail. El Justo stated that his 1st choice for an image would be TR and the Great White Fleet...so I added #1 and colorized it. For #2 and #4 I used Sepia Toning to age the images so there would be more choices.

    The #3 is still the better Image but it would look best as a Game Cover rather than Title Screen compared to #1. The particular Blue shades of #1 show quite nice as a Title Screen and with the image set at Full Screen, it adds an expanse and depth, providing an awesome "Feel" for that Time.

    There is no doubt that people prefer #3 as an Image, however, that Image can only be judged as an Image rather than judged as a Title Screen because images look different at Full screen and as the Game shows them.

    IF #3 is used, it will be OK too...

    I actually like #4 the best from a purely aesthetic judgement, however, I voted #1 in favor of the master Vuldacon :worship: regarding what will look best in game. #4 looks to me like an appropriate image for the time period, however, if #1 will show better in game then I take Greg's word for it.

    btw: For my own Titlescreens I`m using even the two transparent colors for the images (two colors more shows better). The Titlescreen is the only pcx included in the game where you can forget about the magenta and green (if you dare). It`s just not used. At least I was never able to see any glitch with my TS`s.
    I`m just telling you ,in case you need more slots in the palette. OK ?

    Thanks for the "Vote of Confidence" Gary :) #3 is Good... it is a matter of preference for most people and I am certain I see things in a much more scrutinizing manner than most people would bother with.

    General 666... the Title Screens do use the Transparent color slots... What ever colors you have in your Palette in those Positions are transparent so if they are not causing you problems, then those colors probably do not matter for your Screens. Otherwise the colors in the Transparent Slots that are on your Image would probably show as Black on your Screen.

    I like #2 because it reminds me of Jutland.

    Hmmm...
    ... I guess I will make me a titlescreen right now with very flashing colors in both slots.
    That should lighten things up. I need to check this.

    btw: I know that Firaxis one Coming with transparent colors ,but what should the do in the main screen ? So I guess that their graphicans didn`t swapped their `style` in making pcx`s for the TS.
