Once upon a time, someone made a nice little program called Icon Replacer. It was a good program, it could replace the icon of the blenderplayer so that you could make EXEs with your own icon if you wanted to. But versions of blender after 2.25 didn’t work with Icon Replacer. Icon Replacer would say that you’d selected the wrong folder.
Today, however, after so long in limbo, I have resurrected Icon Replacer from the dead! It turns out that it’s quite simple to trick it into thinking it’s still working with 2.25. Here’s how to do it:
- Download Icon Replacer
- Go to your Blender folder (in Program Files)
- Copy blenderplayer.exe and paste a copy in same folder.
- Rename the copy blenderdynplayer.exe
- Icon Replacer will now think that it’s still working with 2.25 and be very cooperative.
- Your EXEs will now have your own icons!Full credit must of course go to Sander Wozniak who made the program in the first place. Sander, I don’t know where you are now, but thanks!
Have fun everyone!
