D. Changing Icons (cont)

Now, select the 1: 32*32, 16 Color entry so that it is highlighted. Now go to FIle, select import and choose the new icon file.

4. Repeat step 3 for the following entries:

2: 16*16, 16 Color

5: 16*16, 256 Color

6: 32*32, 256 Color

5. Go to Edit and choose Save Update to save these changes.

6. Close the file.

NOTE: There is no need to replace the "2 color icons", they will never show unless you are using a monochrome display, which is very unlikely since I know of no computer that can execute 32 bit programs that has anything less than a 16 color display with the exception of some freak machine that somebody with a lot of spare time might custom build. You must use icons of the exact size and number of colors in order to effectively replace an old one. There is no reason to bother with the icons under the 118 directory; these are only for swf files. You will need to use an icon editor to manipulate or make your own icons......the program referred to at the beginning of this tutorial, Axialis Icons, is the best icon editor that you can get for your money in my opinion.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
