My icons for pifmgr.dll

Post by dsp8195 » Sat Sep 03, 2016 6:16 am

Requested some time ago at CORE-10253.

I drew these using Windows XP pifmgr.dll's icons as a reference. Unlike XP, though, these use 256 colours (267, to be exact). This is a stylistic choice rather than limitation, since all icons are actually 32-bit PNG with alpha channel, 32x32 pixel only - I've never planned to make larger or smaller sizes.

So far, only about half of the required icons were finished. The computer one used old icon of ROS NTVDM as a reference.

The colour palette used (copied from public domain Ruby code snippet and rendered thru PaintTool SAI's interface for convenience):

I'm posting them here so people would notice and continue where I left, since I no longer maintain those.

You can download the individual icons at CORE-10253.

These looks amazing! Are they getting integrated into ROS? I hope so!

These icons should contain icon for 16 color mode.

Actually, they don't. 16-colour icons were done back in Win 3.1 / 95 days, hence they used the common 16-colour palette. Nowadays, you won't see any Windows installation running in 16-colour mode by default, not to mention the applications themselves. It may be a good idea, though, to generate 16-colour versions for WinNE (16-bit) applications, but I don't remember for them to use or call pifmgr.dll at all.

HBelusca added dsp8195's icons to pifmgr.dll in r72667.

I viewing pifmgr.dll via Resource Hacker now. These are good icons. These icon groups contain 16 color, 256 color and 32-bit color mode. These icons deficiencies are some icon groups doesn't contain 16 x 16 icons and icon groups doesn't contain 16-bit color and 24-bit color mode.

00.ico is ROS-DOS. ROS-DOS doesn't real. I have thought of 00.ico contain only DOS or FreeDOS icon.

Thanks H6889, let's wait for dsp8195 to know what he thinks about, then I'll have a look. In the commit r72667 some of his icons were converted to 16-colour already. I'll try to take the best of yours vs. mine.
