In response to this closed thread, it has come to my attention that the troper eroock has picked an erroneous image in the rush to fix the duplicate problem for High-Altitude Battle.

The following image (currently placed by Willbyr on moderator authority):

    Current Image 

Is a screenshot taken straight out of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon and pasted together with the Ace Combat Infinity title logo.

I have a caption that's taken from the game before it shut down months ago.

If the current screenshot is from a different game, then I support the suggestion.

I stole your heart, so now I'm satisfied.

Hoping that this promo shot is from the right game...

OP's suggestion is more visually interesting than 5. [tup]

I actually prefer 5 to the OP for being a bit less busy.

[tup]5.

Little by little, we keep getting better. But I hope that we'll get better in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s works departament.

Eh, alright, 5. [tup]

Only if it's from the correct game, though. Can ~Ano Baka Desu confirm this?

It is indeed from the game. But I wholly disagree with picking 5 because it's supposedly "less busy"; to me, it's a completely nonsensical excuse, and 5 is ironically more busy than my pick.

I see why 5's considered less busy — it's a lot easier to make out what's going on with the planes. Plus it has the game's title. It's got my vote

I don't feel that 1 is "too busy" either. It's a pretty straightforward dogfight, which is what the game is all about, isn't it?

5 is just three jets flying over some nondescript city, apparently aimlessly, since they're all going in different directions and don't appear to be fighting each other. Plus a random explosion that doesn't appear to have been caused by any of them.

Basically, I feel that 1 illustrates the game better than 5 does.

Primis worded my thoughts better. In short, I will not sheepishly agree to picking 5 just because the title has been pasted into it and that it's a promo screenshot, which is very non-indicative of the in-game feel.

Vote is currently at 5 upvites for eroock's suggestion, while 2 upvotes for mine. However, I am still of the opinion that 5 does not depict the game's action at all. So what if it's a promo shot? Project Aces had been doing modified screencaps like these all over the game's cycle.

Yeah, I'm sticking with the original suggestion as well.

The clock's well past due and consensus hasn't budged from 5, so it's up and tagged. Locking up.
