Program icon larger than 48 by 48

Postby Provoni » Nov 01, 2018 10:43

Hey all,

Even when using an icon that has multiple sizes up to 256 by 256 the icon never grows larger than 48 by 48 when using FbEdit and a .rc file. I really would like to have an icon that scales to at least 256 by 256. Anyone know how to do this?

Thank you.

Here's a person with the same problem: viewtopic.php?t=16076

He suggests to use Resedit to insert the icon manually. Will try.

I figured it out, partially at least.

If you only include a 48 by 48 image in the icon file along with any larger size like 256 by 256 for example then for some reason it will not use the 256 by 256 image when you ask Windows to display large or very large icons. A workaround is then to only include a 256 by 256 image in the icon file, the drawback is that Windows then scales down the image without any filters, and it does not look as nice.
