I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge about the creation of icon files (.ico, right?). How would one go about making one to use in a game? I know how to change the icon... but i want to know how to make the icon image.

Thanks in advance!

If you have gimp (you can download it free here: gimp.org/) you can copy your picture into it and select to save it as a .ico file. Just make sure it is either 32x32 or 16x16 pixels.

If you want some Icons
you can search examples here :

http://icomania.com/
or http://www.iconfinder.com/

And if you want your "own" ico, you can make it one here :
http://www.favicon.cc/ ( online )

The i also recommande Gimp to you, I use it,
and i Love it ! :biggrin:
