CoolGamrSms's Icon Editor




;) What is this program?
This software is a freeware application that can edit, create, and save icon and cursor files. This is version 1.0, so please expect some flaws. If you do find one, please report it to me, so I can further improve this tool.

:GM045: What can this program do?
This program contains a small collection of basic features, as well as a few unique ones. For example, it has a smooth zooming feature, the ability to move the canvas around on the screen, and a couple other handy tools, such as a 60-color savable palette. There's more, but why should I ruin it? Download!

;) I'm not downloading without screenshots!

Fine with me. I'll provide some then.

Thanks for looking,

P.S. Feedback is nice. ;)


EDIT: Scythetastic is a great proofreader. He proofread the help file. I forgot to credit him there, so I'll put his name here.

Pretty nice, I definitely like the canvas moving and resizing.

One suggestion is maybe to add it so you can zoom in/out on the canvas using the mouse wheel too?

Anyways, good work, keep it up.

Ah, good idea, I didn't really think about it but it sounds like it would work nicely. Thanks for the feedback!

"It appears that draw_getpixel is not working correctly, and this is vital to this software's operation"


I'm not sure what that is about.. that function works whenever I use it.

Well, let me try some things, I'll try and fix that error for you then.

SilentxxBunny, thank you for your kind words. :)


EDIT: Revel, I figured it out. Do you have your graphics card settings set for very smooth anti-aliasing? Like, 8xS? Let me know what they are set at, and try changing them to either 'None' or 'Application-controlled'.

Mine only supports 6xS and its application controlled. However my my drivers aren't cooperating so I'm not sure if that's correct.

Well, mine supports 4x and then 8xS, so I assumed 8xS was the bar. If you can get it down to 4x, or better yet, none, please do, it will fix the error.

Great program. I like the small improvements since I last tested it. I'll mess around with it a bit more later.

Keep up the good work.

Nice features!
Relatively simple to use, and cool effects.
My only suggestion is to make it so that it doesn't pause while using the menu to select colors, and to make the options clickable (it's time consuming and not that streamlined to have to switch back and forth from mouse to keyboard and back to pick options).

Right now I'd give it a good 8/10 in total! Can't wait for updates!

pretty good, especially since it supports ico support. though i think that the text GUI is a little confusing and semi-hard to use. buttons would be much better and faster :)

I would love to use this but I can't. The text GUI is impossible for me to use. No matter where I click I cannot close it out. :/

Like I said, that will be replaced in the next version. Also, pressing the "Page Up" key on your keyboard will open/close the keyboard. It's a little shortcut, pretty easy to figure out (that is, if you read the manual [no one does, don't take it personally]).

Pretty nice, but just a couple problems I want to point out.

- The Pencil tool needs a hotkey like 1

- A hotkey for the Fill tool, 2

- A line tool, hotkey 3

- It needs an eraser. I know just using white will do it, but an eraser would be much more convenient to use, if you had a hotkey for it, such as 4. Also, for the eraser, make it so you can set the background color, so the eraser will basically act as that color

- Allow the pallet to be open while drawing. So you can keep drawing and have the pallet open for quick color changing. And make another button for the menu.

- Have it come with a default pallet. It's nice that it lets you customize the pallet, but it would be so much easier if it could come with a default pallet, save a lot of time.

- And last, but not least, this would be a great program, not only for Icons and Cursors, but also for Pixel Art, if you would allow choosing the resolution of the image, so you're not limited to just 32x32


I know it's a lot of stuff, but if that stuff is all put in, I think this will be the best Sprite Editor made in Gamemaker :snitch:

Can you add a feature to actually test cursors? Other then that, it's pretty good, just make the menu stuff wrap around (hit bottom, go down it goes to top).

Well, it's going to be mouse-controlled, so yeah. The mouse testing thing is a good idea, I'll implement that.

Thanks, Fire Key! I thought this topic had died. Basically, the only thing that is holding back the update is my lazy self and the new GUI. Although, recently I've had more time to work on things, so we'll see.
