I hate to say - as much as Vurlix's icons are fantastic looking, I'm swooning for the simplistic ones by Determination.

I, too am a simple man at heart.

Very nice indeed. that as the program file and then add the icon that hengest made as another resource and associate that with torrent files.

Simple ATTACKING YOUR FACE!

I'm a minimalist at heart... looking at them I get a "Macromedia Fireworks" logo-type feeling. Shadows can be added to any size, np, but I really didn't like the shadow on icons below 32x32.

I have 64x64 through 16x16 built into alpha-blending enabled ico files already, but my icon creator doesn't have 128x128 or 256x256 support yet. Vista really supports 256x256 size icons? That's huge...

Schweeet!! simplistic just like µtorrent!! :)

no offence but i pray to dear god we dont get determinations simple icons.

the whole idea of NT systems allowing 32bit icons is to make things look much more beautified. those icons remind me of being back on windows 95 again, i would dread to have vista and see a 256x256 one of them on my desktop.

I admit, the 256x256 one is very harsh at the moment, but that doesn't mean that the idea is beyond refining. In this design, I began with the 16x16 version and had to somehow expand on that original concept, which is probably opposite of everyone else's submissions. As you can see, the design shrinks very well because that's where it began.

Any chance of a 256x256 one if u get time? :D Thanks buddy, ill deffo be sticking with this ico whatever the devs decide to go with.

I disagree. I think these icons look great, a minimalistic and "modern" look, just like µTorrent itself - like hendrix said. There are different kinds of beautiful. However, I'm not sure what I think of grouping four small icons into one big like that.

Anyone know how to change the icons without an external program? Using Windows XP.

I also agree with Maskros regarding the icons. I think they're really great looking.

u cant change the program icon itself because its been compressed. but u can change the shortcut icon by right clicking the shortcut then click the tab shortcut and goto change icon.

Alot of you guys seem to like the sharp-edged gothic look, so I made one of my own...decided to stay away from the green this time though.
