[PROBLEM SOLVED] How can I replace the default icon in my game? (Android)

#1 Post by CharlieFuu69 » Mon Nov 11, 2019 11:30 pm

Hello everyone! I am a new member inside this forum and also, within the programming.
Lately I have been moving forward in my first game and then so much, I want to make the first tests on Android devices, and behold the small problem that has been crossed into the road: add a personalized icon to the APK package.

I tried in the way pointed out in the Ren'Py documentation https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/android. ... ash-images and in one of the topics of Lemma Soft viewtopic.php?t=45380 but I did not work.

The two sources indicate that I must locate the corresponding images in the base folder of my game, and that they are also of the dimensions and names they indicated, but nothing worked. Sylvie appears as an app icon.

I am using the latest released version of Ren'Py and I work on a Windows OS computer.
Something I must be doing wrong ...

I appreciate your help!

You probably need to check the icon dimensions, maybe it was too large or maybe too small.
I am a friendly user, please respect and have a good day..

Hi! ... I tried the following dimensions:

144x144
432x432 (According to Ren'Py)
and 512x512.

In many articles by Lemma, I saw that they used as an image name "android-icon" (My image is PNG), so I tried with that name and as I could imagine, Sylvie continues to appear as an Android icon.

Then I tried what the Ren'Py documentation (Two images of 432x432) titled "android-icon_foreground" and "android-icon_background" ... Same reaction: The icon does not appear.

I tried to test dimensions greater than 144x144 and less than 512x512 but I don't get the results I expect.

As a primitive reaction, I reinstalled all the Ren'Py files but neither ...

Hi!
I had the same issue for a while and the only thing that helped me was recreating the project. Here are the steps I've taken:
- copypasted the project's folder
- deleted .android.json and [tmp] folder from the base folder of the the new project
- configured the new project
- built it ^^

After that the custom icon actually worked. Maybe it will help you too.
Good luck!

Thank you! I will try your suggestion and see if it works!

When it works, I will mark this forum topic as solved.
