I did some iterations of Chaosfish's idea:

Hmm... I think testidea3.png is the best icon so far! :pppt:

Could you please make it without the letters? We'll need it if we want to make a 16*16 icon (which we should, for taskbar, titlebar, etc.)

The X cross was a bit bent, I fixed it here, so ignore the previous attachment.

don't forget about 48x48 (when you use large icons)

testidea3.png is better dosblue32.png
The color there was a bit different, and I think it looked much better.

About the 48*48 / 64*64, I'm an idiot. I didn't save the icon larger so it's going to be hard making it in higher resolution. Simply resize is not an option, windows can do it itself... I'm going to keep trying.

OK people, it took some time but I managed to do it!

The box in all sizes is in emptybox3.zip

I also made the yellow icon in all sizes, as you can see on the bellow post. Also avaiable in icon format in dosboxicon-yellow3.zip

As usual suggestions are more than most very welcome.

I'm waiting for requests to make more variations.

/\ There you go! :happyhappy: Sorry I didn't know what do since I didn't have your original box design.

As for the exact colour....its a bit hard for me to find the exact shade again because I did a 5 seconds "colourize" and for some reason I just could not pin point the shades I used.... :sweatdrop: I'll try again later!

I like the font in the 128 best. Probably no way to do that and have it readable in the lower resolutions?
I like the whole Chaosfish icons, my only problem with the whole lot is that it reminded me on first glance at the XBox because of the big X in the background. But that is really a minor problem and I really have no say whatsoever in the whole icons thing :)

heh. What I thought of when seeing it for the first time was a crate instead of a box....although a crate is a box sorta. Considering that crates are pretty much hated in all PC games (much like DOS nowadays) and that crates have been around for forever in PC games it seems to fit.....

lol DosFreak... Nice to see all the effort you guys are putting into this.

An idea that I think would be cool (but hard to do on a small icon) would be to make an icon that looks like an original IBM PC monitor ( http://www.craigslist.org/sfc/sys/90885519.html ) with a big C> prompt on the screen.

A pic of the whole PC: http://www.machine-room.org/computers/268/pictures.html

Can you copy-n-paste it into MS Paint and use the dropper tool to get the color you're looking for?

Not the method I used....I'm using the gimp to shade the whole pic with one swoop....and for some reason I can't get it to look right. :sad: I get close...but no cigar.

Woah this thread shalt not die.

Well here are more sizes with that Futura font. I'm not entirely sure it's better than the previous font...

And I still think avatar's testidea3.png is the best one so far, I wish you'd manage to make it into the 128*128 empty box so we could work with it more :)
