OS/2 icon files, only the original 32x32 icon and a new 40x40 icon, for Microsoft Excel 5.0a, Microsoft PowerPoint 4.0 and Microsoft Word 6.0a. No smaller sizes, because the single goal was to create a better looking larger icon which still looks the original one. If you want cool or more modern non-VGA Microsoft Office icons, then perhaps use a newer image source file than Office 4.3's.

I'll look at Access 2.0's too, but there the background of larger image sources is different (no text, different ratios of items).

The bouncing padlock screensaver.  Can the lock be replaced with a different graphic and if so, is it a OS/2 icon, bitmap or PNG?   If an OS/2 icon, can it be replaced with a bitmap or PNG?

Here is it. Only 32x32 (original) and 40x40 (new) again, mainly to not make the background look like some bar code. It's a mix of several images.

It's just a bmp, Padlock.bmp. It's added to the DLL as a resource so likely has to stay as a bitmap.

Why not just make a new screensaver, and leave the old ones alone?

So far we've just added skins to the Pretty Clock module, none of which have been committed yet. I am inclined to swap some of David's work with the originals as they do look much better and the rest can be packaged separately. They're easy to add to an install.
As for the Padlock, that was made, with these instructions, http://www.edm2.com/index.php/Creating_modules_for_Doodle's_Screen_Saver_-_Part_2 from eCSBall. I also made the ArcaOS one from the eCSBall.
Don't know what David is thinking of doing with the padlock, wouldn't hurt to swap in a better bitmap or make a new module.

Folder icons for ColEm/2, a ColecoVision emulator. The icon files are based on the quite dark, but nevertheless unchanged original ColEm/2 icon.

And folder icons for BackAgain/2000.

I am kind of hoping for translations as well :)

Okay, albeit I'm not using it. Some minor space-related fixes w.r.t. SS_NL.HLP and SS_NL.MSG, in smaller chunks. No credits please:

Replace "cherm beveilig" by "schermbeveilig" (removal of the space).
Replace "achtwoord beveilig" by "achtwoordbeveilig" (removal of the space).

Sometimes it's already good. like "Schermbeveiligingsmodules' in the MSG file. In general they'll often have translated two words (password protection). In Dutch that may imply safer passwords (password protection) instead of protection by using a password (passwordprotection).

The rather long HLP file subject "Het instellen van de taal van de scherm beveiliging", almost French with lots of "de la" and "du" (the setting of the language of the screen protection), can be replaced by the shorter "Instellen schermbeveiligingstaal" (set screenprotection'slanguage). Or, perhaps better, "Instellen taal schermbeveiliging" (set(ting the) language (of the) screen protection). Or just "Instellen taal", set language, if that;'s clear enough. If screen protection is "screen protector", then replace 'schermbeveiliging" by "schermbeveiliger" ("Instellen taal schermbeveiliger"). Setting the language of the screen protecting software. That may be the best match, but that's unverified.

This is actually "scherm beveiliger", should it still be "schermbeveilig"?

Replace "achtwoord beveilig" by "achtwoordbeveilig" (removal of the space).
Likewise, this is actually "Wachtwoord beveiliging", should it be  "achtwoordbeveilig" Also I find "wachtwoord beveiligingsvenster" and "wachtwoord beveiligd" Perhaps I should attach the IPF.

Thanks, I'll attach the IPF due to confusion as mentioned above.
Also I added NLS support to CairoShapes and currently only have a Spanish translation, I'll attach the simple en.msg, both in a zip.

No, it's a case-sensitive binary replacement string which accounts for both "Schem..." and "scherm". And for all suffixes. A simple search & replace will do, without having to touch any other character. As discussed recently in a browser name-thread, -er works the same in several languages anyway. Protect, protecter. Just replace all occurances of "cherm beveilig" by "chermbeveilig".

Same. It will fix more than it will brake. "wachtwoordbeveiligingsvenster" is okay, and so is "wachtwoordbeveiligd". The "s" between "beveiliging" and "venster" is the same "s" as yours. hers, his, Tom's. An alternative is "venster (of the) wachtwoordbeveiliging". Just replace the text as instructed, without touching any another characters. Case-insensitive ("cherm Beveilig"  -> "chermbeveilig"). Delete the space; don't change "screener" to "creen". Do keep wrapping lines in mind ("screen0D0Aprotection" instead of "screen20protection").

You'll be able to search & replace w.r.t. the on-topic file. I'll look at the other one later, and wouldn't mind some translation requests-thread with a few sentences or words, with context, per day. In the case of Doodle's we're talking about a full manual, of a product which I'm not using. Hence the restriction. Extra spaces are occuring quite a few times, without having to review (and possibly discuss) a full manual.

A candidate for a translation requests-thread, despite of the fact that the MSG file may be compiled. So simple, that Google gets it right, albeit in Dutch you'd use the rather detailed fixed expression "shapes AND figures" less often.

English: Cairo Shapes
Dutch: unchanged, copied or borrowed words. "Cairo shapes" (not uppercasing each word) would be overdoing it.

English: Shows different colorful shapes and figures.
Dutch: Toont verschillende kleurrijke vormen en figuren. Assuming a context of ("Dave's solution now ) Shows different ...".

Here the important full linguistic context is missing: "Using the Cairo library.", and it may be easier to replace "library" by "DLL" because the isolated last "L" isn't the first character of a Dutch bibliotheek. In IBM's Dutch (source: OS MSG file) DLLs are "dynamic-link-modules", but you aren't using the word module in English.

An update, of the 3 *.ICO files (folder closed, folder opened, NConvert.EXE) only.
Oops, this is a hard one. With a bad monitor it still doesn't look alright...

Google's German translation, one of the eCS languages, seems to be right too: Zeigt verschiedene farbenfrohe Formen und Figuren..

What's the context of the MSG text "Using the Cairo library."?

Cairo is the library that takes care of the drawing, similar to PDF or PS. It is also the library that draws Mozilla excepting the frame and widgets. https://www.cairographics.org/
Strictly speaking, library is more accurate then DLL, which is a type of library, Dynamically Linked Library.
