Here's a test build of the screensaver with David's work (not yet committed). Package grew by a third.

Uninstalled the old package and installed this version.  Installation was good and all new packages were installed.

Thanks for testing. Thanks to Alfredo for redoing the Wis. Upgrades should update in place, including the folder. New installs should use \sys in ArcaOS, \ecs in eCS and \os2\apps in plain OS/2

NConvert (drop targets)    (NCONVERT.EXE)

"Solved". There won't be such thing as a NConvert icon. Instead I've used their XnView.com logo.

Dave, I cleaned up some garbage that I saw on the bmetal02, pmetal02, and smetal02 skins.  reattached.

Right now, I've just been adding them without committing, eventually I'll prune them down and put a zip (or Warpin package) of the others up. The packages I posted are just test packages, though I am kind of hoping for translations as well :)
Right now I'm leaning towards replacing all the originals as I never much liked them and yours look much better.
Once again, thanks for posting your doodles.

You seem to have zipped up the wrong skn file (pmetal02.skn)

I have to apologize for the earlier release.  I got in a hurry and missed some things.  Here it is hopefully for the last time.

Touched up the back.png a little more.  Replaced the one in the Peacock module with this PNG.

Quicky (QUICKY.EXE)

Not solved yet. The size of its original UI artwork is 22x22, and the (attached) least worse one can have an ugly shadow. I'm considering to use a generic, classic, generally available formatted-text icon file instead, like existing DOCUMNT*.ICO files.

A possibly missing category: better looking 40x40 icons for Microsoft Office 4.3, fully based on the original 32x32 icons (I'll attachg a few, FWIW). I've used PowerPoint to check my library of icons, but AFAICT there's no larger icon which looks like ye olde, classic 32x32 PowerPoint icon.

Dave

On the simple clock and simple color clock, I fixed the second hand.  There was some fuzz on the exterior of the clock I originally did not see.

I took you icon and made the four sizes.  I did away with the shadow.  Although it looked ok on a white background, the same could not be said for a dark background.  If you have already finished your icon or don't care for this one, just don't use this one.

Just did the peacock clock in 512, a smaller size.  See which one you like better.

I'll use this for Quicky, for one because it's based on the original artwork. It has 2 modes, edit and view. My icon would have been a view-icon, but edit is better because it's almost a simple word processor without printed output. So editing is more relevant than reading a result.

Two weren't that hard. I'll attach screenshots of different sizes, but each matches the ratios of the original 32x32 icons. The same method won't work for Access/Exces and Excel, because the images are slightly different.

The grey background has to be replaced by transparency, but now I'll post original *.PNG source files instead of edited *.ICO images. This may be as good/large as the scaled original images will get.
