    Apps icons

    Is it possible to change the icons set for programs you set on the apps screen?

    Yes, but you need to manually edit the DriveLine_Settings.xml file.

    Search the XML file for AppIconImage and you should find the tag to edit. PNGs with transparency are best.

    The icons like for the solitaire game and Firefox browser? I wanted to change them too, because they are too low resolution and blury as is.

    Yup, those icons. They default to the icon in the app EXE, which is usually only 64x64 at most. So they get a little blurry when blown up to the size used in DriveLine.

    What size are the icon's in Driveline? Could you not have a 64x64 window in the tile to hold the exe icon's, might make for a simpler solution. Just a thought SNO

    There is no set size for anything in DriveLine. It's all vectorized relative to the size of the screen (in pixels). 64x64 isn't very big. If I forced them to 64x64, they would come out around half their current size (or smaller, depending on resolution). And another thing to remember is that some EXE's still only use 32x32 icons, so they would still be getting enlarged.
