18 October, 2010
It's been two years since Library Icons 2nd Ed. came out. This is, of course, too long, but things came up as they so often do. This release includes 918 icons in three different formats (Windows, PNG, and OS X), supporting the maximum resolution of Windows (256×256) and Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6 (512×512). The PNG release is also 512×512.Usage
Windows: The best way to install the icons is fairly dangerous and extremely time-consuming. It involves manually replacing the icons used by each DLL and EXE within Windows and various other interesting programs. I can't do this for you, since you probably run a different version of Windows than I do, and because distributing the files would be something of a matter of copyright infringement. Many people like to use some kind of icon manager or packager to avoid this, by tweaking the registry instead, but there are too many out there to pick just one or to do them all, and the experience is really somewhat sub-standard compared to what a good, hard modification job can actually provide. If anyone else is willing to make icon packages, however, I will endorse them.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and happy modding!
