I was just wondering, is there any way to change the
Icon used by the .exe file Dark Basic creates? That
shiny metal?/glass? thingy is nice and all but I'd
like to put my own icon on my work with out having
to create a shortcut that has a differnt Icon.

Having a shortcut isn't really changing the .exe
icon at all so it's no good for what I need.

(Hope this question isn't to stupid )

Right, there are two ways:
Use IconChanger to change it, which is an approved method, or use a Resource Hacker to change it. This takes a bit of know how, and it might not be approved....

I always change the icon on my compiled .exe's. But is it legal to distribute the game/app with another icon?

IconChanger, I've never heard of that before.

What's IconChanger?
Where do I get it?
How much does it cost?
It got any 'SpyWare' in it? (I hope not)

kinda wish it could be done inside of DB, like pro can
rather than having to hack them in

TheCyborg, you can use your own icon as long as it's either yours or royalty free.

This has "Fiasco" written all over it.

Well its your program anyway. You own it. You hold the copyrights. You can do what you want with it (hack into it, crack serial codes etc).

I use a program called Resource Hacker. It's also good for modding windows (Ex: explorer.exe).
