This is just a test, but how do you like the high res glossy icon just like vista? Here is it in large icon mode and medium

Cool I will try and clean it up, I've been busy lately, however I think for the smaller icon, we should use the XCorps logo, as it has less detail. I'll provide pics later.

Merry Christmas to you too.. Here is the new icon for Xenocide.

You can see the different scale, however you will not get the large and extra large effects with out vista (You can see the difference compared to normal xp icons), however it still looks nice in medium for XP

Would it be a good idea to change the logo on the PX site to the new one as well? Or would it look bad? Just thinking out loud here, don't mind me. :)

This is the logo from the PX website, just with a glossy looking effect and something to make it pop out a little.

Right, and I'm just wondering if we should change the PX logo to the glossy one you created. I mean, it stands out more now. :wink1:

I don't think we need to I like the logo, The reason I added the glossy effect was to make it look like most windows vista icons, they are big, detailed and have a glass effect on them mostly.
