I didn't like 2 Strong Bads on my desktop, so I made a new icon

Yeah, there was a blurb in a previous thread about who would grace the star in Dangeresque 3. Dangeresque is cool and all, but I didn't like having 2 Strong Bads on my desktop, so I put Renaldo in a star and called it a day. Check it out:

I used a resource editor to actually change the icon group in the .exe itself, but if anyone wants a copy that you can assign to shortcuts, I dumped a copy at my geocities account. It's here:

Right-click, save as. Don't worry, its a full icon group. it's not that small.

Edit: If Trogdor isn't in the EP5 icon, I'd better get to work. But that's a gimme. Who else would it be?

    Ha! I told 'em they should use Renaldo!

  • How do I make it save as an icon?

    If you go to my geocities site, it should show up really teeny-tiny (assuming that hourly bandwidth cap hasn't been maxed out). Just right-click on that teeny-tiny icon, and save as. I'd put it somewhere out of the way, like in the game folder.

    Don't worry, if it's assigned to something, it can be expanded up to 256x256 pixels, there's 7 actual icons in that file altogether.

    As for the Trogdor one, I didn't icon-ify it. I just drew it and photochopped it to look like an icon. I already had a layered star and gradient outline, took me about 15 minutes to pop Trogdor in there. I'm sure when the real one comes out, it'll look much better.

  • They look awesome. :D Would you be able to fix Strong Bad's eyes on the Episode 1 icon? :D They look really dark and misshaped at the moment.

  • Hmm, you're right. And the discoloration isn't from the palette.

    Shouldn't be hard, I'll see what I can fire up. No more classes today, I ain't got nothing better to do....
    *ahem* finals erm.. studying *cough cough*

    Perhaps Telltale should hire you to be their "guy who does all the weird little odd ends, like desktop icons, really well". You'd be great! Telltale would be at least 1.3% better with you on board.

    That has to be the most flattering thing anyone's ever said about me. But I'm no artist, I just take pictures that already exist and piddle with them a bit.

    It took a minute, but this guy was offering a challenge:

    So I did what I always do when strangers tell me to do stuff: I obliged.

    Left - Original, Right - Modified:

    I dunno, something still doesn't look right, but I can't put my finger on it.

    Edit: Teeth, If you're a big stickler for this kind of thing, I posted a copy of that modified icon group here:

    Personally, I didn't care about the eyes, but hey. Anything to help out. The only reason I didn't like the Dangeresque icon was my icons went Strong Bad - Homestar - The Cheat - Strong Bad again.
    Homestar and The cheat didn't have that much involvement in them two games, why not put another character in there? Share a bit of the wealth? Renaldo just seemed like the best option.

  • I don't know exactly why they put Dangeresque on the icon for episode 4 (Dangeresque 3). It really doesn't make sence.

    Perhaps it's because, let's face it, Coach Z is creepy.

  • While I like the Renaldo icon, Dangeresque on the icon for the Dangeresque episode was the right way to go...

    But I do agree that more than one Strong Bad-based icon next to one another is kinda dumb... They should of had Homestar on 101, The KOT on 102, and leave 103 - 104 as is.

    Also, if the 105 icon has Strong Bad again instead of an awesome image of Trogdor emblazoned on it, then I'll, I'll... I'll figure something out, and it won't be good. (Maybe i'll post those pics I found on the net from telltales 2005 "Christmas party".)

    Actually, I don't know if that will work... since "leather" is coming back into style anyways. (P.S. Is that why the wall had to come down?)
