High Res icons not included with collection series installer

Post by lukeman3000 » Wed May 24, 2017 5:40 am

I installed KQ5 with the collection series (1997?) installer and noticed that it did not incude a high resolution icon (256x256) as many of the other installers do. I haven't yet checked the other KQ games in the collection series installer to see if this is also the case with them or not.

Why would you assume that it would? Hi-Res icons weren't available until Windows Vista came out in 2006

None of the original releases had those high-res icons, but the custom installers here include them. If not all of them do, that's an inconsistency that could be fixed.

The icons are no longer included separately in the installers, but instead are now part of the launcher apps.

Ah, I see. They can still be extracted from the exe, that's good.
