lol i wanted to see something like this on the forum, here i go...

SiMoNsAyS' WinRAR Interface

foood icons (winrar gui patch) over winrar 3.41 (spanish translated).

you can see in the screeny the difference between my created rar-sfx and the default one.

how i did it? i've manually reshacked the program and i've changed default size of foood's interface from 48x48 to 48x32 to mantain winrar original apparence.

i'm sure @xpero will see this tomorrow :hello:

i've updated my winrar to 3.42 version :P

i would upload the file to ezshare but i doubt some1 is interested in the spanish version.

if you want to change the main window is as simple as edit the bmps extracted with a resource hacker program. if you want to change icons for filetypes just edit the icons with reshacker. this is on winrar.exe

you can optionally edit uninstall.exe and rarext.dll, the first to change uninstall apparence and icon and the second to edit the winrar explorer cascade menu images.

finally if you are a little picky you can change the icon on created rar-sfx by reshacking .SFX archives.

too easy...
