    projector icons..

    mwh710@hotmail.com
      i want to make a custom icon for my .osx & my .exe projector files. I am using the latest version of icon builder & the Mac .icn works, but the windows .ico doesn't. I am using a Mac dual 1.8 GHz G4 & photoshop CS2. help anyone?

          I don't believe that the custom icon option works cross-platform. At
          least, when I author on a PC, I have never gotten it to successfully set
          the icon for a Mac projector, and I believe the same is true if you
          author on a Mac (PC won't get an icon). You will need to use a resource
          editor to put the icon into the PC version. For that, you'll need a PC.

          There is a free program for PC called Resource Hacker

          http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/

          which allows you to do that. A far easier to use program (but not free)
          is Versiown.

            Hey! It's free now!

            Way cool for me. I've been using ResHacker for years now, but it was
            corrupting my Shockwave compressed projectors. So I edited (a copy of)
            Director's Projec32.skl whenever I created a new projector. This still had
            problems if I edited some of the fields when creating a SW projector, though
            - and was rather inconvenient. (I see I'm a minor revision behind. Perhaps
            the latest would work better.)

            Still, it was such a little thing, leaving a couple of fields at their
            defaults, that I didn't feel justified in paying for that extra little bit.

            Now that Versiown is free, though ... using it on a project today.

            Thanks for the reminder, Mike!

              Wow, now that you mention it, it looks like a bunch of Goldshell's
              programs have been released as freeware recently. Cool! There is some
              good stuff in there.
