FahreS does it again. This simple mod enhances the resolution of the systems buttons and bar indicating build time remaining. I've noticed a huge difference-- playing Armada II at a resolution never imagined by the builders requires a high-definition facelift, and this one's really something.

Now, if you've never noticed it before, you sure will now. Check out the screenshot if you want to see the results. Download it if you want to see some results in your A2.
