Excellent! Now everyone with OS4 who prefers the png icons can enjoy them as well.

Cool!

Now, let's see...can the icon sets be Cron'ed? I'm thinking, Mason-icons on mondays, powericons on tuesdays, the classic MagicWB on wednesdays (for nostalgia), if possible some nifty KDE-set conversion on thursdays....hmm, still a few days short of the whole week...

It's really shaping up, visually, this OS4-thingy. Because choice is good!

Excellent,

Thank you Elena & Massimo. I can go back to this now ... Well, when I get IT

On a slightly off note. Is there an easy way of converting Windows icons to PNG icons. The ones used here have had another update since & there's a few new icons in there. It's quite a full package actually.

The ones you can see here were uploaded onto AmiNet a while back.

It would be nice to see this set from Lorraine-Designs included on the OS4 CD. What would be really nice is if the OS4 installer could give you a choice of which style you wanted to use, and make that your default set. But I'll just be happy to download them if need be.

Oh man, those icons look sweet!

I really hope that they're in the contribs drawer in the CD...

BTW, anyone else notice that at least one of the Friedens is enjoying those icons?

[EDIT] Duh, never mind - I just saw the url. Of course they're enjoying it

I havent tried powericons yet, but isnt there a limitation where you see no icon when you click on it? That would be the only thing putting me off running powericons on my A1 when the prerelease gets here.

Nevermind, I answered my own question by getting it running in WinUAE..

It shows a selected icon, but doesnt update the movement in real time.. like how amigaos currently does window movement/repositioning.. thats alright. I will definately use Powericons on my A1.

That limitation might have gone away in the OS4 version (since it will probably be more recent than the one you have).

Rogue? EntilZha?
