The manufacturer name is ALPHA instead of Lockheed. Also, the tail number is registered as 17955 instead of 955. Sorry!


The SR-71 reached mach 3.2 to fly about under about 1 hour from New York to London. The SR-71 is used for high altitude surveillance without getting spotted.


Simply put the dlgsplash into the Uires folder on the main FSX folder. But be sure to make a backup for the default or your other "dlgsplash" files to "Bdlgsplash" or the same backup file with the number of your splashscreens you have. Then run FSX and there you have it!!!


I made the splashscreen by capturing the SR-71 with the Print Screen button. It doesn't print, even you have a printer, but I run the Paint program to paste the splashscreen I capture. Then I crop the screen to only make the Aircraft Detail window visible. After I saved my wallpaper's name to a name that relates to the splashscreen, I cut the airline callsign, the aircraft name, and the tail number on the top right of the splashscreen. Then I opened dlgstd to crop the Flight Simulator X logo only and pasted into the bottom right corner of the splashscreen. Then I saved it as "dlgsplash."


My computer is slow because I installed FSX. My program was slow because of my splashscreen, but not because of that... I had a low virtual memory message. Your computer should run normal for this splashscreen.
