View Full Version : Custom Collections Icons...
13th Oct 2005, 3:19 AM
Does anyone know, or are there any tutorials for making your own icons for your in game collection folders? I hate those stupid icons not to mention they tell me NOTHING about what's in the file! I know I saw someone post some icons for download somewhere but I can't find them now :confused:
Thanks A Bunch

Open the package containing the collection (that, by the way, can be freely renamed, for readability sake...).
In the resource tree (left, on the screen), select the filetype "jpg/tga/png Image" and then right-click on the file that appear in the main window (called jpg/tga/png Image, as well); select "Extract", browse to the folder where you want to save it, and give it any name, but be sure to change the extension to .tga.
Now, in the folder you have a .tga image (it contains an alpha channel, for transparency), that you can edit with a paint program.
When done, save the image in .tga format and close the paint program.
Right-click again on the "jpg/tgs/png Image" file, and choose "Replace".
Browse to your edited .tga image and load it.
Commit and save; your collection now has a new icon! :)

That's pretty useful, thanks. I was wondering what to do when I ran out of icons there. And can the collection be shared in that way?

Yes, the new icon is contained into the collection package (this is true also when you use the built-in icons).
