Yeah, the big ones have the clearest face and nice sharp lines. Problem is, they are a little big for a forum, or not?

They are a little big but the extra clarity makes up for it.

I'd like to replace most of the default icons with GTA images but there aren't enough different faces.

I added :?: icon (just generated it with TXT2GTA2).

oh, in that case, I can get some cop heads. :P

I added them in the package again. :)

==================================
Version 3:
- added exe icons (gta2, manager and mispad)
- added extra yakuza gang logo (from carroof)
- added some animated heads (more maybe later)
- added actived power-up icons.
- naming corrections in gangs.
- naming correction, hearth -> health
- smoothed (AA) edges of original gang icons (by hand)

A non winking loony logo would be good. There is the one in the manual but it looks a bit simple. I haven't looked at your last attachment yet.

Had a new idea for the topic icons. Not sure if I like it, but still sharing the test image below. :)

Great! [gang]

Can you use png's for those icons? They look way better than gif.

i think the colors should be swapped: red for unread (e.g. "new messages"), gray for read (e.g. "nothing new").

You are right, I accidentally mixed that up.

Besides the new topic icons, I also had this idea for sticky icons.

Is it clear that it is a sticker? :roll:

If you want to use the new images, I put them all here below in a zip, this time with correct name. There is actually a difference in sticky topic "mine" and "not mine". I just re-used the "not mine" image.

I also used PNGGauntlet. It makes the png images smaller (some 50% reduction). Saves some bandwidth. :mrgreen:
