If you have bothered to read my website recently you know I am making some Star Wars icons.<BR>I need to know the answers to a few questions to help in making them.<P><B>What icon size do you use?</B><BR>48x48 or 32x32?<P><B>How many screen colours do you use?</B><BR>256, 16m, 32m or more?<P><B>What Windows are you using?</B><BR>95m 98, 2000, XP etc.<P>The icons I'm making are primarily for Windows XP as they support the new features. So if you have that you will get the full advantage.<P>What I'm trying to work out is if I need to include 256 colour versions or other stuff.<BR>So any answers are very appreciated. :)<BR>You can see a small preview on my website at the moment. :cool:

Any more replies guys?<BR>C'mon I'm going to bleed this stone dry! :D<BR>Just a few more varied replies will put my mind at rest.<BR>The first batch of new icons should be up soon.<BR>I've decided not to support 256 colours. I don't think that should be a problem with anyone should it? If it is you really are behind the times! :p

Another question! <I>I've got to use my forum for something!</I> ;)<BR>I was thinking of making some icons of Console games. Pictures of the boxes of games like: Bounty Hunter, Jedi Starfighter, Rogue Leader etc.<BR>But right now i'm not sure if I should bother?<BR>Any of you guys interested in using icons of those? For shortcuts to files or whatever.
