    Its actually really simple.

    Check it:

    NOTE: to see changes, scroll down in the PLISTS and look at the bolded parts.

    GO from this:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    	<key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key>
    	<string>en</string>
    	<key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
    	<string>Payback</string>
    	<key>CFBundleExecutable</key>

    And there will be no "glare" on the top half of your icon. YOu must do this for each application.


    Sorry if this has been mentioned before.

    It just looks kinda weird on some icons and some backgrounds. I just found this by accident when I was trying to cheat at Payback somehow.

    I like it, if all of them have it... if there is one that doesn't it just ruins it all though.
