Adding 256 Color Tray icons

27 posts in this topic

I'd be surprised if that patch is really doing 32-bit tray icons anyhow; rather I suspect it's just doing what the hex edits do, i.e. 256-colour, given that it specifically talks about editing the explorer file and (afaik) there is no such available edit to obtain 32-bit icons that way.

But hey, feel free to prove me wrong.

Ahh, that patch did the trick. Awesome. :thumbup

I'm guessing that by "32bit", they mean that it accepts any RGB from 0-255(not limitted to specific increments). Since systray icons are only 16x16 though, they're really 256 colour. Monitor settings determine if they appear 32bit.

Hey, something I was just noticing - my makecabbed ex_ files are larger than those in USP. What version or method does Gurgel use to get them smaller? Simply recabbing files boosts their size ~5-10%. I have v5.00.2134.1 of makecab.

Edit: Figured it out. :)
