Change icon for BlitzPlus programArchives Forums/BlitzPlus Programming/Change icon for BlitzPlus program
| Hey everybody. I've been unsuccessful trying to change the icon for my BlitzPlus executables. As it appears, there isn't an icon at all in the resources of the executable. I've been using Resource Hacker to change the icon of my Blitz3D executables but I can't seem to add an icon to my BlitzPlus ones. I did a quick search on here and I couldn't find a definate answer as to whether or not it was possible in B+.|
If it is possible, could someone please verify that for me. And if it is, could someone please give me an idea as to what I may be doing wrong (I know how to change it for a Blitz3D exe...).
Thank you for you invaluable time :)
| I strongly suggest Mark to add a 'select icon for exefile' -option in any b3d/b+ update.. :) |
| Yes, Blit+ EXEs have no icon, but you can still use ResHacker. Instead of simply replacing the icon, you have to add the icon, following these steps:|
1. Open your EXE from Reshacker
2. Action > Add New Resource...
3. Locate the icon file you want to add.
4. In the dialog box, call the resource "ICON".
5. Click OK.
| I have difficulties on step 4|
In my case after I give the icon file there are 3 thing I
3 Resource Language
Resource Type is disable after I load that Icon file and its has string "ICONGROUP" in it
The other 2 I already try type "ICON" but still I can enable the OK button
| Ops.. I know the problem|
On Resource Name I type "ICON" , that why its wrong.
Just type ICON not "ICON"
| Why isnt there an icon for Blitz Plus then? |
