@Templario

It's just a place to stick my Amiga files. My main site (at the moment) is Watch Ken Draw.

I've restored this link (for the last couple of years it's been redirecting to Aminet).

I tried using it a couple of weeks ago and it didn't work. Glad to see it works for you. :)

Edit: Ah. I see it still doesn't work -- it breaks the links. Just checked and I see that your link is broken too.

Sure -- no problem including the icon.

Finished the icons, but never got to my A1 to put them together -- so here they are as DualPNG and as individual png images.

Ssolie has created a great utility for converting DualPNG to OS4 format (no png plugin required) -- OR you can build the icons yourself if you know how.

Nothing orginal here -- just my attempt at creating a "wolf" version of one the the classic Firefox icons (it ain't as easy as it looks!).

I'll upload the icon(s) when I get access to my A1.

I would like to add them to www.amiga-look.org. Is it ok with you?


Not this set -- it's a "work in progress".

However, you can add the archive I uploaded to Aminet if you'd like.

@padrino

I know it sounds like I'm pandering, but I really like Mason's new drawer design & I think the larger size has been a long time coming.

@Wanderer

Icon scaling would be a nice feature to have in OS4 -- it would allow people to use ANY goofy icon they like without sacrificing visual integrity (AmiDock in particular would benefit).

I'm told that the functionality is already built into the OS4 icon.library -- it just isn't being utilized.

(netinterface.info is corrupt)


The 'netinterface' icons all read as good here, but I'm on OS3 at the moment -- OS4 is way more fussy in that regard. I built the install archive on OS4 for just that reason. I'll definitely look at it when I get a chance.

That particular icon is in a couple of different places in the archive -- maybe try replacing the broken icon with a known good one and installing again (AFTER uninstalling, or you'll lose your backup of Mason's icons).

I'm just playing around -- no intentions of doing a 64x64 set.

Glad to know someone besides me is still using the icons.

BTW -- did you try the installer?

A 64x64 design that's more compatible with Mason's new stuff (lighting angle, prefs button, etc) ...

Someday, maybe we'll need 256x256 icons!

Cool!

Might I also suggest another script I wrote that cleans up the tooltypes of the 4.1 icons a little bit ...

Very nice! Will these icons also work/install on OS 3.x?

If they are "OS4 32-bit icons" then the only way I have found to display them on OS 3.x is with AFA_OS. Unfortunately there is no individual tool like "PowerIcons".


The icons included with the installer are my first (and only) set in the native OS4 format -- the icons WILL work with OS3.x with Afa, but the installer will NOT (because ssolie's tooltype utility is OS4 only).

I did a lot of testing with OS3x (by commenting out the tooltype part) -- if you know what you're doing, that WILL work.

Ken's Icons 2009!
Illusionist

I realized today that I hadn't uploaded ANY icons in 2009! I've been painting all along -- just haven't made anything available. Here are some of the things I've done lately.

The first archive contains OS4 specific icons (that I was missing) and some additional icons for AmiKit.
Screenshot of Archive #1

The second archive contains miscl icons I painted for VMWAros a while back. Most are AROS specific, and not much use to OS3/4 users, but you never know what someone might need.
Screenshot of Archive #2

The third archive was also painted for VMAros, but is more generic. It's a collections of "computer" icons -- might be useful as disk icons or as network icons.
Screenshot of Archive #3

The archives are all available in the 'Downloads' directory at my website (files all begin with '2009').

----------------------

(Doing my best Steve Jobs impression)

Just one more thing ...

A few months ago, Kindergip sold me his A1 Micro (for a screaming good price), so I decided to create a new OS4 specific installer/uninstaller for my icons. The result is pretty cool, in my opinion.

Thanks to skills of Severin, the install script is semi-intelligent -- it scans the source & target directories for matches and then replaces the image data of any matches it finds. It also creates a backup of each icon it replaces as it goes along (in Sys:Storage/Icons).

It's been tested on my A1 & two other machines (another Micro & a Sam440) -- no bugs or errors so far (but let me know). It takes about a minute (or less) to install (or restore) on an A1, but something like 3-4 minutes on a Sam! There's currently no progress indicator, but the installer DOES let you know when it's done (best not to do anything else while it's working).

Ssolie wrote a utility to modify the tooltypes of icons (and gave permission to include it), so the install script also adds a copyright notice when it changes the icons (and removes it when it uninstalls them).

The script is compatible with all released versions of OS4 thru 4.1 (including Classic) -- I painted everything that was missing from previous sets.

This was supposed to be the centerpiece of the first REAL release of "Ken's Icons v4.0", but since I'm slow and easily distracted, it makes sense to release it now.

Since it's still 'beta' (sort of), it's not in the main Downloads directory, but you can download it from here (for now). Also -- don't forget to make a freakin' backup!!!

Nice stuff.

I know you can't answer (or maybe you don't even know) -- but I want to know WHEN the next update will be released?

Re: new icons ?
Illusionist

We've been using the current icon size (46x46) for 10 years -- since back when 640x480 was considered a large display! The icons then took up a lot more screen real estate than the new 64x64 ones do today.

The new ones also look very, very nice -- it's amazing the amount of detail that can be added by just this small increase in size.

Plus, anyone who doesn't want to change can always revert back to the old icons.

On the Subject of the "buttons" -- I'm with Orgin on this one -- a button should look like a button, not a freestanding icon. However, they SHOULD have an alternate state (even a subtle one) -- this is Amiga, after all.
