I know that somewhere out there from long ago, there is a set of old icons which by now are incredibly outdated in both the areas of art style, quality, and the characters.

This set contains nearly all of the characters (exclusions below) in both a .png and .ico file format. All of them match each other, but in the .png folder particularly, some are higher quality and larger than the others. The preview image shows the difference (Nordics were used because the Allies all have the same quality as the Axis). All art is official.

Download the .zip file in the DeviantArt download link on this page.

How to change icons varies between computer. And by that I mean, just google it or right-click what you want to change and hunt through the options and properties.

Not included: Romania, Bulgaria, Kugelmugel, Molossia, Nikoniko, Cyprus, Macao, Ladonia, TRNC, Korea, India, Hutt River, Hesse, Moldova, and the other even more obscure ones.

R.I.P Cyprus, I just feel sorry for his forgotten status.

Also I see I am not the only Cyprus Fan on here! :3

Oh, I'm sorry.
Did you even read my comment, or did you just see 'is there another post with the missing icon'? I didn't mention at all any of those countries that were listed as not being included, unless you consider one of the three main characters to be obscure?
Just a note too, Japan is in the picture for the post, did you notice that?

Also, thank you for deciding to pick on my comment from more than half a year ago, I couldn't appreciate it more!

(I've no intention of starting an argument with this, by the way, but take it as provocation if you like I guess [F2U] Chara shrug icon )

I mean, the problem with that is that every computer has different settings. You should be able to find it if you right click the icon you want to change, no mater what computer or OS you have, but after that it could be anywhere. Try looking under something like a properties menu? That's really the best I can suggest, sorry! You could get more detailed results from a google search if you put in your type of computer and OS.

Okay, so a desktop icon is like an icon for your browsers, programs, etc. Like, for example, you know your recycling bin, right? It has a picture for it by default. It's a picture of a recyling bin (Of course. XD). That picture is a desktop icon. (And don't worry, I didn't know what it was either before. XD) So, hope that kinda helped. wink :P

Sad about Romania and Moldova being left out, but I understand that you can't make all of them. Thanks for making these!!! :D

Well, the problem is that I didn't draw them myself, I just photoshopped the heads off of official art. If you look on the back of I think volume 4 or 5 on the manga they're the same pictures. So I simply couldn't do characters like Ro or Mol because their pictures didn't exist.
And since I didn't DRAW them, normally I wouldn't post them here but there was nowhere else I could put them up for everyone else to use.

I understand :) I looooooove that I have the ones I do on my desktop now :D And I messed around with my sister's desktop and changed all of her icons to either Prussia or Hungary (her two favorite) just to see if she'll notice it XD lol

For some reason the first file was corrupted, no matter what I did it wouldn't work DX
I had to delete it and download it again, then it worked
