I have a Resource Hacker program, and I wish to alter the little space rocket icon for Blitz executables.

However, it wont accept my .ico file as a replacement.
Any tips?

Have you tried any other .ico files which you know should work? Maybe you just created your icon incorrectly. I recommend IconForge from Cursorarts for working with icons.

It has to be 32x32 256 colors icon.

I had this problem just this week. When I selected an ico to replace with, I got nothing. But if you read the screen more carefully, it says something like "select a file that has an Icon". So I selected my old VB app, with the good icon in it, and it replaced the Blitz rocketship icon. This works every time, while selecting the .ico itself never worked. Its like ResHack only wants to hack-in an icon that it hacked-out of something else.

There may be other ways, but this is how I did it.
