i realy like the icons you made, but i would like to create some others inthe same style for programs that i use. so i would like to ask you some questions:
- first of all, would you mind if i use your style to make custon icons? (let me make it clear that i will NOT make them public or make money out of it. i am just interrested in making my desktop look nice! - What programm do you use to make these icons? - How did you make them? i can only find icon-tutorials which doesnt show you how to make shadows and transparant parts. - and finally... i changed every icon manually by rightclicking the folder or programm and then "change icon". is this the way you intended to do it? or is there a handy option in WindowsXP that automaticly changes everything?
i realy hope you can find the time to help me out here, thanks in advance, niels lamme (holland)
i'm on my mac now so i cant direct you through the whole windows process (i've used them on my XP OS) but anyway. you dont have to do any file overwriting. just go to the control panel in windows and one of the utilities there (it could be themes or advanced display properties but i honestly cant remember right now), anyway snoop around and you'll find it. it's basically a scroll window displaying all your currently used icons. select an icon, browse for your new downloaded icon, and replace. rinse and repeat for the rest. XD if you've changed your mouse cursors before, its the same procedure.
I'm new round dA... but how do I use these icons? is there a folder in WINDOWS where I overwrite the standard set of icons? I tried getting an address but I found these are in a dll file and not a folder. If there's a FAQ or guide for this please link me

well, cough, i didn't wanna rip your stuff. it'll still be your work. you'll get full credit. i just wanted to HELP you by offering them in an alternate format. much better for all users if you ask me. plus, with your permission, it's not a rip. lemme know. i'm greatful for them either way but i KNOW someone would appreicate them in ip format. [sigh] lemme know. i mean shit, you could put them on your own account i guess.
