Is it possible to change the icon for ONScripter to a custom icon? I have no problem at all doing it in Mac, but I've tried several different ways and programs for the Windows build, but it refuses to change. Is there a known program that can do this, or is changing the icon just not possible in Windows?

I prefer to use Resource Hacker (http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/), which can do what you are looking for (unless there is something really odd about ONScripter that I don't realize).

In actual practice, there's little point changing the icon in the ONScripter executable itself, because your players are unlikely to look at that. It can be done by hacking, or by compiling your own executable (which is what I do), but insani's packages simply distribute a separate icon file and assign that to the shortcuts created by the installation program, and I think that works perfectly well.

The icon used at runtime, meanwhile, is not the one compiled into the executable, but is rather taken from a file called "icon.png" in the game folder. (This is an SDL thing.)
