A few desktop and folder backgrounds done in PNG's.  ArcaOS has no problem utilizing PNGs as desktop backgrounds.  I decided to do PNGs because for some reason, my ArcaOS was getting confused when using OS/2 bmps.  This does not exist when using PNGs.

I am moving my portal folders here so they are easier to find.  To use, dynamic icons must be enable for each folder you want to use them in, including the desktop.  Remember, XWP's shadow icon does not work when dynamic icons are enabled for that folder.  Thes PNG folder icons can only be used if you have ArcaOS.  You can use them how you want.  You can have a blue folder icon and when open it can be a empty blue bubble or you can use a clear port icon and so on.  I started some yellow portals.  Now I just have to find them.

The first set is the blue portal folders.

Somehow I left this out of my xwp shadow icon package.

Another butterfly, possibly the best of the three.

By the way, anything I upload, feel free to use anyway one wants, to modify, or add to.  As I have stated before, this is stuff I play around with which is why I refer to it as doodles.

I liked the yellow glass folders the best so far so I made more folder icons .

I also made a few more doc icons based on my glass idea.

I also modified the drawing pencil pointers to a more yellow look for my theme.

Also included a picture of my present desktop.

Hello david,
I wanted to ask you if you have the warp3 or warp4 icons of the magnifying glass,
 that we have in the xcenter, and that the xwpfinder program uses.It's for tests

I was trying to change this icon the other day, and it seemed that after changing it,
I increased the memory of the system. At about 200,000 to 400,000Kb
It seems to me that this increase in memory is due to the fact that when the icon is changed,
the desktop is reset.
If someone wants to verify it, for me it is a sensation. You just have to "Restart Desktop".
The pmshell.exe appears with a new pid and you're done.
Remember to have a backup, because when you restart the desktop,
if you have the defective inis it can be a kaos.
Saludos

Hi Roberto

I do not have the magnifying glass or any of the other icons.  The source files can be found at Netlabs if this helps.

Thanks for the link, I think I'll open a tiket with the error in xwpfinder, in mantis.

Concerning my previous comment of the memory, it turns out that according to theseus4,
it is exactly the opposite, to what I have observed. Doing the desktop restart,
I consume 350,000kb more than without doing it.
I can only say that if someone wants to try it, and compare it, it's simple.
 I already start the system, I do the restart desktop. It works better especially with applications like the virtualbox,
 which are some memory swallows.
The explanation, I do not know, could be from an error in theseus4, to a better use of the cache ...

I am messing with a new glass prototype folder.  Uploaded are the templates. 

Also uploaded 7 test icons.

David, if you write a little application and use gray-scaled versions and identify mask templates for your base gray-scaled images, you can apply user-specified colors allowing them to generate their own custom preferences to generate an output icon set based on those preferences.

Put together a few base color group patterns for common likes and people can use those as a base for tweaking and creating their own custom entries.

If you're interested in something like that and you have some base OS/2 Presentation Manager programming skills, I would be happy to help you setup a template app and give you some cues on the algorithms where required.

Hi Rick

I appreciate the offer, but you have enough on your plate to handle.  Unfortunately, I am not a programmer.  I thought about it at one time may years ago, but realized without help, I would never be good.  In addition to lack of knowledge and skill, I am a poor typist.  That is why I started dabbing with icons, ptrs, and bmps.  I have had to teach myself over time.  Fortunately, no typing was involved.  It is just my way of contributing back to the OS/2 community. 
 
Best of luck on the goals you hope to achieve.

I can only work on any given project for a few days at a time then I need a switch.  I enjoy tackling new things.  On this project I would've mostly guided you and written some template code that you could expand upon.

Just completed some more portals.

I do have a question.  Is there some way to increase the spacing between icons when in dynamic display mode?  The larger icons can become cramped.  I thought at one time there was a grid spacing feature, but I do not see it in ArcaOS.  There are also a few system icons that don't give one the option of dynamic png icons; sound, kernel, and display.  I wonder if these were missed when dynamic icons were added.

A few new icons and the jade portal folders.  For the open folder, you can do it in six ways:

1.  Don' assign an open folder
2.  Assign the yellow folder for open
3   Assign an empty jade folder
4.  Assign an empty yellow folder
5.  Assign an empty ring for the open folder
6.  Assign a ring with a brown interior

I named some of the open folder choices gateways.

Just updated my jade, blue, and brown portal folders adding more folder icons.  Removed the earlier zips.  Pics of what some of the icons look like can be found on page 2 near the bottom.

Remember, there are various ways to handle the second icon.  It is up to your imagination.

1.  Don' assign an open folder
2.  Assign the brown folder for open
3   Assign an empty jade folder
4.  Assign an empty brown folder
5.  Assign an empty ring for the open folder
6.  Assign a ring with a brown interior
7. etc

My first animated arrow pointer.  It is a highly visible 32x32 animated ballon ptr.  It changes colors.
Just unzip and copy the folder to the os/2 pointers folder.  Open the mouse icon and select the arrow pointer.  Then select load set and select the folder with the icons. 

Just added a new animated shuttle ptr.
Added a ani charged pointer.

Hi David.

By any chance have you created any improved version of the "System Setup Icons" (like the ones that I'm attaching) that looks more similar to the original, but optimized and with a higher resolution?

I would really like to have some SVG format of a nicer version of the "plain system setup" icon, so the rest icons can be improved and maintain the old fashion way that I like, I kind of like those icons. It is a thing of a personal preference, don't believe I want to force people to the same taste  ;D

Are you saying is it possible to make PNG icons similar to the pics?  Yes.

However, if I did so, I might try to upgrade the graphics inside the control icon.

I will play around and see.

Hi David.

Those looks very good. Thanks.
I was wondering if you have it on SVG (vector format) or just work with those in PNG?  I know that the final file must be on PNG to work, but SVG is good since it can be any size without loosing image quality.

Regards
Title: Re: David's Doodles
Post by: Dave Yeo on February 21, 2019, 03:35:21 am
Hi Martin. We don't seem to have any SVG support. I ported Potrace, http://potrace.sourceforge.net/ (http://potrace.sourceforge.net/) and played a bit.
Problems include no colour support but according to the web site, can layer. These PNG's don't translate to well to BMP or PBM due to having OBJECTS and/or LAYERS.
I used Embellish to convert the PNG's, some to PBM some to BMP, which I ran through mkbitmap to convert to PBM, test3 I also converted to greyscale.
The potential is there, need to play a bit. For help, run the help output through less as there is a line ending issue, potrace --help | less

I'll probably upload the full program to Hobbes after more testing.

Edit, the SVG's don't seem to display here for some reason. I tested by drag'n'dropping them on the browser (SeaMonkey)

Post by: Martin Iturbide on February 21, 2019, 03:09:08 pm
Hi David.

That's good, I just wanted to know. SVG is not an icon format and will not work as icons on OS/2, but it is an interesting format since it is vector, so it is like having the source code of the image. Since a PNG, ICO, BMP are Bitmaps files, they have a defined size, while vectors images can be grown to any size you need without loosing quality.

I use Inkscape (sadly not on OS/2) to create/modify some images like Artie (https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php/Artie) on SVG format, and I can plat around with it to export to several other formats.

By any chance have you produced any icons for any OS/2 game you may use/know?

Let me know if you have some icons for OS/2 games. I want to include some newer icons on my experiment called "OHFOWG (https://archive.org/details/OHFOWG)", where I'm trying to pack all OS/2 freeware/open/shareware games that I can find.

Post by: David Graser on April 27, 2019, 12:20:55 am
Are you referring to OS/2 icons or PNGs?  As of right now, I have done no OS/2 icons for games.  I prefer working with PNGs because the normal OS/2 icons are a pain in the ass to make and ArcaOS gives me the ability to use them.  However, that is not to say I won't make any.

The rather detailed Des_chiffres.png of 27 april looks like a drowning light blue cartoon character, with 2 light blue feet. As if the game can be quite hard. I had to zoom to see what it actually was: numbers. I'll try to use the released, simple Galgje.png. If anything to stick to a generic border theme.

Not an *.ICO file request, but a doodle in text. KMP, K Movie Player: the Korean flag, positive or negative, as a 3-D film frame of a 3-D Movies folde'ishr-icon, with and without the folder (KMP folder, KMP drop target, KMP UI). IIRC the Korean flag also was a little bit too detailed to make that work, even if you did restrict yourself to a smallest size of 40x40.

I thought at one time there was a grid spacing feature, but I do not see it in ArcaOS.

Old question, younger answer: I'm not using ArcaOS, but you may have been talking about Extended Desktop and its setting (tabs of the settings of the desktop), NPSWPS, or OO.EXE or a Rexx script (with or without WPTOOLS.DLL to query existing icons) which tries to set icon positioning by using WPS setup strings like ICONGRIDSIZE or ICONPOS. BUILDVRX.CMD of Watcom VX-REXX includes an example of ICONPOS, but nowadays I'd set its default screen size to its largest known screen size of 1024x768 instead of an outdated 640x480. The screen size is used to calculate ICONPOS-values.

Will probably be be used in a next release soon, w/o credits. The previous one really came close to a triangle-shaped, overwhelmed or drowning cartoon character. Two light blue feet sticking out to the left, and the hole of (IIRC) of the 4 representing facial features.

BTW, w.r.t. Digger: the original *.BMP artwork of DIGMENU3.ZIP itself, including but not limited to its EAs, qualifiies as bloatware. By choice. The largest bitmap can be converted to 256 colors, by using e.g. PMView or NConvert. The 2 smaller, untested bitmap files to 4 or 16 colors (at the moment please disable Hufman when PMView is used to save those small bitmap files, to avoid already reported extremer bloatware or crashes). Saves about 0.7 MiB of disk space and backup/restore time. I haven´t tested the small ones, but the largest file still works with 8 instead of 24 bits per pixel. FWIW.

Post by: Pete on August 02, 2019, 02:20:37 pm
Hi All

Not sure if this thread should be "hijacked" to discuss the BMPs supplied with DIGMENU3.ZIP but as Andre has commented I guess I should respond...

I did consider converting images but decided as the images total <1Mb to leave them alone.

The images are not required at all in order for digmenu to run - just make the interface more fun - so can be deleted if disk space is really tight.

Alternatively a user can create their own BMP files to use, just need to make the new images the same size as existing BMPs and use the same names as the existing BMP files.

Hi Pete

A scanner icon is a very difficult icon to do when making an os2 icon due to all the limitations of the os2 icon.  I created one, not to happy with it, but I don't think I could do much better.  Others more skilled could probably make one better.

This is not a request. It may be inspiration, to identify categories or "popular" apps without any *.ICO file. A quick & dirty list of objects without an assigned *.ICO file, excluding many folders with a default icon. Typically 3-D folder icons aren't that hard to create.

Missing icons may have been caused by an original author of a ported app without any original icon, not having assigned some generic icon to an object yet, or not yet having converted some available Windows-icon to an OS/2 *.ICO file. And so on.

From my point of view the most remarkable categories are the 1st (multimedia), 2nd (browser without an icon), mainly the 4th (graphics without *.ICO file), and the last 4 (a.o. FM/2 objects, brands of emulated hardware, utilities, iconless software for programmers).

Code: [Select]
K Movie Player             (KMP.EXE)
K Movie Player FS          (KMPFS.CMD)
WarpVision CLI             (WVISION.EXE)
Z!Bar                      (ZBAR.EXE)

Hobbes                     (FTP-PM template)

More 80x80 game PNGs

Hi David.

I was checking your animated pointers (ecs_animated_cursors.zip, ecs_os2_ani_blinkinglights_ptrs.zip, ecs_os2_ani_flag_ptrs.zip, eCS_OS2_Ani_Mouse_Ptrs.zip, more_ecs_ani_mouse_ptrs.zip) on hobbes.

1) I was wondering how do you assign the icon (the ones that shows on the desktop) to the ani file. Some ani files shows the icon file, and some others not. Do you assign manually, and the EA is included on the zip file?

2) Will it make sense to combine those five packages (do you have any more?) in a single file in hobbes, and upload it to "/pub/multimedia/pointer/animated". I can help with that.

Regards

Hi Martin

It has been a while.  Some are done the OS/2 way and some are done the Win95 way if I remember correctly.  Presently, I don't have it installed.  The latest supposedly corrected version of animated mouse pointer was dated 2010.  I tried it with ArcoOS and it would hang my system every now and then.  Also, it did not support the Win95 animated pointers which the original did. The fixed version has disappeared (2010).  Now that I have 3 ArcaOS partitions up and running, I will have to try the original version again. 

It has been so long that I really don't remember.  The os/2 versions, you need to select the folder.  The Win95, if I remember correctly, and I could wrong, should be shown in the pointer selections.  I will need to install the original when I have time.

The only other animated pointers are the new ones I posted under this list.  As for the ones on Hobbes, I never uploaded one big package with all the pointers.  If you want to put them into one package, that is fine with me.

Not an *.ICO file request, but a doodle in text. KMP, K Movie Player: the Korean flag, as a 3-D film frame of a 3-D Movies folder'ishr-icon, with and without the folder. IIRC the Korean flag also was a little bit too detailed to make that work, even if you did restrict yourself to a smallest size of 40x40.

It was. A quick & dirty (2-D) redo confirms it'll look like JMP or like a Japanese ribbon. Too... many... details. :-\

PRIX3M80.PNG (renamed to Chiffres80.PNG) and GALGJE.PNG (renamed to Galgje80.PNG) are now distributed as the "official" 80x80 icons of the matching games Des chiffres and Galgje. Des chiffres had a different own 40x40 icon, but there the availability of a 80x80 version and a more generic 80x80 style was leading.

"Solved". https://dataperfect.nl/files (https://dataperfect.nl/files) has a 32x32 Windows icon file, which would probably look better as a 40x40 icon with a slightly larger text "DP", using the same italic blue font of WP5*.ICO OS/2 icon files.

JRemind (JREMIND.JAR)

Semi-"solved": 80x80 only, without the border, based on an original 128x128 source file. I'm not 100% sure if it's the icon of our version of JRemind (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-viewer.php?dir=/pub/java/apps/misc&file=jremind10.zip), though. Too... many... details for 40x40.

For a possibly better 80x80 one (too.. many ... details, even for 80x80), which shows the days of the calendar more clearly, I can refer to the original 128x128 icon source file. Hang on, I'll attach it (128x128, larger than 80x80 so NOT an icon for us). It was found in a JREMIND.JAR of a possibly different JRemind. The size suggests it's the icon; there was more artwork, including a 60x60 image.

Our JREMIND.JAR doesn't contain an icon file, AFAICT, and I couldn't find its possibly updated and/original source files.

I've played with the days while resizing to 40x40, and may give it a third try later today. Now even 80x80 is too small. Please note that it's an alternative to grab any rather clear 3D'ish calendar icon and an own J.

128x128 days-section copied, adjusted 128x128 image resized to 80x80, 128x128 days-section pasted on top of that 80x80 image.

This won't work with 40x40, because then the red bit would become too large to be able to almost recognize the days. Too... many... details.

And a "fun fact": none of my WPS-installed ported apps with "PNG" in the name of the app have an original PNG icon.

FWIW: the "About"-dialog of QVV shows both the credits of the assumed source of the image and the full image. The image "Green Woman", by Valentina Kallias (https://www.deviantart.com/valentinakallias). I've used the original icon file, so there won't be a need to repeat those credits and the permission. I've used the icon; not the original copyrighted image. Users of QVV may have it installed anyway.

Excellent; I actually wanted to mention a white background. Such a background shouldn't be required. I did delete the "shadow" of the planet, because often such a shadow doesn't look that good. I did consider to change the usual blue planet by appending the "tail" of a Q, but I think an unexpected Q-shaped may look weird.

Perhaps I should have changed the color of the Omega icon, because e.g. folders are yellow too.

W.r.t your archive there were still 2 files without an *.ICO extension. "DIR *. /s" should find those files with a missing dot.

At the moment text2pdf, of my "text2pdf (drop target)", is "under construction". To OS/2'ify it, including possibly using a part of a rather basic PDF-icon of a Windows 3.x-distribution of about the same original package. Our lazy ports are iconless Unix utilities, and tend to use STDIN and STDOUT.

Martin, I can confirm,  The properties page must be a backdoor to increase the PNG size beyond 80x80.  Beyond this is referred to as a custom size.  It is not listed in the properties menu of the folder until you make a custom size.

Listed is before and after.  Thanks for pointing this out.  I did not realized we could go beyond 80x80.

I don't have ArcaOS, but according to an useful dump of AOS files by Dave Yeo files like \sys\icons\BIGICONS\binocular_128px.png do exist indeed.

Is this documented, for example for developers!? I don't have a clue what the default size is, nor how it's used, nor how e.g. an installer can assign a PNG file to a WPPrograsm object.

The DOS game Death Rally/[url] has a 32x32 Windows icon file but it's dark, not great and similar alternatives are too detailed and too dark.

Carambole Classique (BILJDEMO.EXE)

"Solved". The icon, again almost too detailed, represents the goal of such a game quite good. Hit at least three cushions with your white ball before having hit both other balls. Being too detailed is not a complaint, FWIW. Designers of 80x80 and 128x128 may frequently notice a lack of details. It's not always easy to keep all sizes in mind.

I'm running out of off-topic messages, for one because often there's no good, or no iconic, original or alternative icon...

Updated and new icon files for Njam (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-viewer.php?dir=/pub/os2/games&file=njam-1.25-os2.zip), the "full-featured cross-platform pac-man like game written in C++ using SDL library" by Gianfilippo Cimmino.

I added a new, slightly better looking size 40x40 and sizes 20x20, 16x16. The size, in bytes, of the existing icon size 32x32 image is reduced.

eCS 1.2-style folder icons are included too, because an user may install at least 2 Njam objects: full-screen, and windowed (documented -w switch).

Edit: yes, it is. Converted to PNG online. Probably too detailed for 40x40 or smaller as-is, but perhaps usable for 128x128 and/or 80x80. So this may be an example of having to use a different (part of an original) image for a *.ICO icon file and a *.PNG icon file. Unavoidable.

Not sure if we have got native software to convert SVG files to e.g. PNG?

I've edited (stretched vertically and moved) the "FB & ZX" to try to account for smaller sizes. The original, unmodified PNG file may look better. I'll attach a stretched original 144x144 PNG file and a 40x40 icon file.

Not really, AFAICT PhantomJS (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-viewer.php?dir=/pub/os2/apps/internet/misc&file=phantomjs100-os2.zip) may do the trick if it's not too old, but it looks like the user has to write unclear code (https://github.com/domenic/svg2png) to use it.

Do use David's. Mine's hardly more than a basic attempt to see if 40x40 would still work at all without too many adjustments, with adopted rounded corners. David has even included all classic OS/2 icon sizes, unlike me.

Oh, all of my icons are off-topic. Originally I did use 2 colors for the Tesseract OCR icon file, but then pixel-ratio's of the top blue square seemed less good. Hence the mix of 256 and less than 256 colors (the larger PNG files, for example). I may use yours; apparently I was overdoing it a little bit.

I noticed I should perhaps improve my 8 bpp Njam ones (unintentional white edges, dark background) too...

Is this an upgrade/improvement of the previous 24-bit Njam icon? I don't mind having two, but I can delete the first copy if it's an upgrade instead of a second version.

FTR: mine was based on the single original 32x32 icon. I'll have to look at improving all other sizes.

Is there a generic "trick", method or way to avoid or repair "white" edges when a darker background is used (or when the background is white, but the icon is selected via the WPS)? I don't mind having to look at the level of individual pixels, but getting that right manually can be quite hard. After all 40x40 comes down to a maximum of 1600 pixels. I do understand what's causing the white edges, but I cannot think of a simple solution to reduce the number of "wrong" pixels.

They are actually two separate icons.  When you stated you needed to clean yours up, I attempted to make an icon similar to yours in color and design, but bigger. 

The WPS renders OS/2 icons with a dark interior and a lighter edge as white around the edge.  Also, I lot of time while resizing icons, there is a lot of white or light grey colors.  That is why I prefer PNGs over the OS/2 icons.  The PNGs render much better.  That being said, when making my OS/2 icons, I have to go into each icon size and remove the light edges.  As a result, I usually create the various sized PNGs using a Windows program, and use its transparency tool to fix the edges, and then use PMView  in ArcaOS to copy the PNG images to the correct size in the OS/2 icon.  Circles are easy.  I use the transparency tool to make a circle without any interior to remove the light colored edges.

Two by you, one by me: three. Is your earlier njam_24bit.ICO now replaced by your Njam3.ICO? If so, then I just have to delete my copy of njam_24bit.ICO. Otherwise I'll keep all 3. There may be more apps which require 87.5% of a pizza.

Thank you. In this case I was trying to avoid a few badly rendered pixels (32x32 -> 40x40), but because of my usually white folder backgrounds I noticed having added even more "bad" pixels later. One of the tests now will be using PNG first. And a darker test background. I don't mind having to edit pixels, but not as many pixels as possible.

BTW, one of my earlier 80x80 PNG files was based on an original icon, but found in a different package of the same author. If nobody can find that original icon I've claimed to use for a new 128x128 PNG file, then try "related legacy products" of the same source. If you are known for an "EditIcon" package which can deal with Windows icons too, then a "EditWinIco.ZIP" could be a different, "related legacy product". The source of one of my 80x80s, between page 5 and this page, was found that way. Sorry, hard to explain. I've found the icon of "EditIcon" in some related, older, ..., "EditWinIco.ZIP" package. Same source, different package. Probably at github, maybe sourceforge.

Thank you; then I'll keep the first one too (because the second one is not an update). From a file management point of view, to not introduce several versions while you've got one.

An update of the Njam ones, as announced earlier. No more grey beards when the background is darker. All are based on the original, single 32x32 icon. Goals remained a slightly better looking 40x40 icon, and folder icons to reduce the number of default folder icons in use by one. Not pixel-perfect, but an improvement.

I've looked at using PNG, but didn't end up using it. As usual I've used ICONEDIT.EXE to create the folder icons, by using it's sticky selection of pixels (select the pixels you want to replace, switch to the donor image in the list, and select again to select exactly the same, right donor pixels without having to record or remember coordinates and/or sizes).

Again no request, but perhaps e.g. the file WIN1.JPG in a directory of Njam can be used for a 3-D PNG icon. That'll require the removal of text, so there may be better or easier alternatives. All other original Njam artwork is mainly 32x32'ish-sized only, including a 32x32 *.ICNS icon file.

An original 128x128 icon file of Formido (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-viewer.php?dir=/pub/os2/games/strategy&file=formido.wpi). It's a background of the game. Smaller sizes are available, but e.g. not 40x40 nor 80x80, so one may as well recreate those. Another original (Windows) icon file, size 32x32, is probably included in the OS/2 distribution as ICON.ICO.
