I can edit photos pretty good, but creation is not my strong point. So I'm wondering if there are any creative types out that want to take a stab at making an icon for the OS X binary of D2X-XL? It doesn't have to be made on a Mac. I can make the icon file using the developers tools. What I need is at least a 128x128 RGB w/Alpha (32bit) image. If you feel like going all the way, the icon file takes 4 variants that are used to generate all intermediate icon sizes. The full list looks like this:

  • 16x16 in RGB/Alpha and a 1bit mask
  • 32x32 in RGB/Alpha and a 1bit mask
  • 48x48 in RGB/Alpha and a 1bit mask
  • 128x128 in RGB/Alpha - no mask needed

what format should they be in???? PNG would be my first guess.

as for trying to create something...I am having the vision of a blue crystal orb with lightning around it....something sharp w/o the w32 text on the icon itself....

Might use GIMP, or even Blender...dunno yet...don't count on me, seriously :roll:

I'll take a stab at it...

You need a background for the .dmg as well?

Kirby, PNG would work great.

DCrazy, that would be awesome as well.

NovacroN released a few hi-res Descent icons a while back; you can grab them here. I don't know if that's the type of thing you're looking for, though.

I can't do any better than Novacron's icons. They're just too perfect. :D

As far as the .dmg background, right now I'm going for a screengrab from the D2 opening movie with a box in the middle that will contain the D2X-XL package and a symlink to /Applications, similar to this example but, of course, D2-themed.

I'm just trying to determine whether to include any text in the background image. I know we have a lot of German as well as English speakers who use D2X-XL. Is it worth the clutter (and possible missing characters in the D2 font) to include text?

The latest binary (1.5.40) now uses Novacron's Descent 2 icon. :D
