Windows Game Icon not Showing in folder

Postby djeby » Sat Aug 06, 2016 12:08 pm

I wanted to add my custom Game Icon in the Game Settings and I added the image 32x32.
But when I compile the game with Windows Plain Files, it creates a file called icon.ico which is the icon i wanted, but the executable .exe file still has the 001 Icon.

What can I do because I do not want the icon to be 001 but my game's icon.


Any ideas?

You could change the icon of the exe to be the icon.ico file manually.

How?
I tried looking into the properties, but changing Icon only appears on shortcuts and not the core .exe file.
I would appreciate if you could tell me how to do this on Win 10.

Thanks in advance,

Thinking about it now, its very likely that built games using the "Installer" build option probably don't have that icon either. What likely happens is its simply the shortcut that is automatically generated that has the icon perhaps?


I'm not sure at this point to be honest :P

If you're setting something up for steam, you should be able to specify a game icon another way.

As a last resort, download the program Resource Hacker and you should be able to modify the executable to have the icon itself.

I understand. I just saw the app before you posted the reply.
I tried using the Resource Hacker and it works. Thanks

Typically the .exe file has the wrong icon with most games I've noticed. Usually there is a launcher.exe file with the icon, or a .ico files and the desktop generated shortcut has that icon.

Any development on this? I am having this problem too and i'd like the icon to be loaded normally in project settings.
I even tried to upload all the possible icon sizes hoping that windows would pick the right one, but no. I still have the default icon on the main game exe file.
