Hi. As I drawed my icons and saved my game as standalone it stills shows the boring MMF icon. If someone knows how to change this I would be glad to hear.
BTW I already died ResHacker and the results were "Not enough memory" error.

Can you tell me what makes it illegal if you change icon only and mention that change on readmeh? And do you think it's illegal if I change my applications picture with it?

When you edit the Icon there are 4 differant versions of it. You must change them all, otherwise people with differant specs will see the icon differantly. There are two 32 bit icons in two differant sizes. And two 256 colour icons in two differant sizes.

From what CT told me, you are allowed to hack the icon with ResHack, but you aren't able to add additional icons to it or it will cause problems because the exe header will be too large thus causing the data tagged on to the end of the exe will be considered corrupt. I think I know a way to add all the extra icons you want, but I'm not sure if it is allowed. You may only have 32x32x8,32x32x4,16x16x8, and 16x16x4 for your apps icon, which is a limitation that will hopefully be removed in MMF 2

I didn't manage to change all four icon, when I try to change only one icon it changes all and 2 icons are left. BTW is it possible to open my .gam anymore on TGF because I can open it on MMF, but I don't like the icon system so I want it to TGF, it says "this is not game file!"

Why do you want to change the icon in the exe ? There is a working way inside MMF ...

Canīt remember how it was in MMF 1.2 . But in MMF 1.5 click at Properties of Application , choose About , click at the change Button in the Icon panel , and you are at the place where you can edit the four Icons that are available for MMF . And i think MMF 1.2 was somehow similar ...

Watch the tabs at the bottom ,which tells you that you are in 1 of 4 at the moment . To reach the other ones you have to click at the tabs there : 32x32-256c ; 16x16-256c ; 32x32-16c ; 16x16-16c .

Change them all to your Icon , build Standalone App, and you will receive your exe with working Icons ...

Note that if you run the game from MMF you might not see the new icon in the window titlebar, you'll have to build as an EXE to see your new icon.

Unfortunately, I tried that already, it shows me only one 32 x 32 icon instead.

I have the same problem, I used to see the tabs, but now I can't get them back.

I solved my proble, but I had to rebuild my game by copying levels etc from "non-working version" to new app and I see all four now.

To get the tabs, you might have to maximise the picture editor (or make it smaller so you can see the whole window).


Using ResHacker is illegal because you aren't allowed to modify the EXE, and the MMF runtime agreement states that. However, if you're just changing the icon, I doubt anyone would care.

Oh, make sure you're using the latest build of MMF (11, because recent fixes include making sure all the tabs appear.

"However, if you're just changing the icon, I doubt anyone would care."

I talked to jeff or someone about that and they said altering the icon was ok for the final runtime, I'm not sure about the compilation runtime though.

Ok, let me get this streight...

Its illegal to hack the finaly EXE of your game when u made it in MMF, exept if you just wanna change the icon, in my case, a 32bit icon rather then the shitty 16bit they wrap you up with in MMF.

True &/or False
