New Code::Blocks Icons
« on: August 06, 2011, 06:02:08 pm »
I noticed that Code::Blocks' icons looked a little old (especially noticeable on Vista and 7), so I made some new icons (compressed with 7zip).

(Edit:Here they are as png images.)

(Edit2:XP compatible versions of set B icons.)

Please test them out and leave a comment/suggestion about the several variations (there are a couple extra).

I can also try to create other icons (you never know what Code::Blocks might gain support for :)) and convert these to other formats (for systems other than Windows) if someone gives me a few details on what is required.

(Edit3:Here are all the splashes and graphics I have posted - these are on my SkyDrive, so they should not go offline.)

C::B uses only pngs for the icons, because it is cross platform (almost in the true meaning of the word, not the M$ meaning:) ).

Additionally, on Windows the executable is linked against the ICOn resources coming from here:
[C::B_SVN]\src\resources\resources.rc
Compiler logging: Settings->Compiler & Debugger->tab "Other"->Compiler logging="Full command line"

OK, thanks.  I had used the Windows resources for an idea of what was used (and for compiling in these new icons, which worked fine).

Here are the icons in png format.

Wonderful Job.
by the way, I think the image(codeblocks' official splash image)

is not quite good. it has a lot of empty space in the bottom half.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

I appreciate the complements, thanks.

I have been working on an alternate splash as well, but it still needs some tweaking.  However, I could share what it currently looks like.

Probably I will move the text down a bit.

I finished with the alternate splash.

It looks very cool on my machine :).  (I changed the x and y offsets in [C::B_SVN]\src\splashscreen.cpp to 351 and 214 if anyone was wondering.)

It looks very nice, indeed. The only thing I would like to have different is that the actual C::B quadrant is is the foreground, although it would look surrealistic. The reason is, that especially the violet and green colored cubes look a bit weired as the color is bumpy... just my 2 cents...

We can use it as a trunk new logo?

Nice design, this one was much better than the previous one. both the word has the perspective view.

I would like the C::B quadrant be in front the panel, also, what does the bubble used for?

For the version number.

New release -> new logo. ;-)

I don't like it, it is pretty 90-ish...

I don't like it either... too "fancy", I'd say, in lack of a better word to describe my fellings...
