Ken's Icons 2009!
Illusionist
Illusionist


See User information
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!!!

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.

Nice looking artwork!

Any thoughts about making the jump to 64x64?

Definitely! I really like Mason's new stuff, so I plan to switch to them when they become available!

Thanks for the icons! They have been installed fast -about 2 minutes- and look great on my Pegasos 2 machine under 4.1 of course.

Cool!

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

Fix Icons!

Very nice and inspiring artwork! I still like the lean, clean look of the icons, witch makes them easy to identify.
I am looking forward to see your big icons.

Again, great work!

Playing with "big" icons ...

My "old" 64x64 design ...

Resized Image

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

Resized Image

Someday, maybe we'll need 256x256 icons!

Excellent! I'll order a new 4x3 m display with an appropiate pixel count - that should work perfectly with that 256 px^2 icons...

64 x 64 Ouch, will you still make your current style? I am trying to update my Flex with your style, I prefer them over Mason's style (no offence Mason), call me a purist but your icons are more Amiga representative. I know Mason's style is meant to herald a new era for AOS and it probably does but having the ability to choose is also very nce (maybe decadent for our little paltform).

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?

New icons and an installer, you're The Man.

Also a real tease; those 256x256 icons are to die for!
