Problem with changing the icon

#1 Post by lykoia » Wed Jul 08, 2020 8:46 am

Hey all, newbie here.
Every time I try to change the icon nothing happens. Only the window icon changes, the one you see in the file explorer doesn't. I use a PC.

I changed the icon in options.rpy but that did nothing to the file explorer icon.

I've seen other Ren'Py games that have different icons on shortcuts etc than the standard one, the Ren'Py logo.

Thank you in advance.

Make sure the icon is a .ico extension and your icon is in the main directory, not the game folder.
Also, the .exe one I believe doesn't show up until after distribution
