Greetings,

Since I couldn't find HD icon based closely on original Grand Prix Legends design, I decided to make one, full credits to Papyrus who created the original version.

All original vector images are included which is very flexible for further editing. The 67 icon is just an example. Also put in an extra green hell icon I made for an endurance league in the past. Hope those icons can provide some use. Details inside archive readme.

In archive you can find:
Five 256x256 ICO format files
Six 256x256 PNG format files (with one being 2000x2000)
Three original SVG vector images

And here is a comparison image between new and original Papyrus' version, the white outline is the new remake.

Hi Leon, thanks for the point out, those icons are great, and I had already downloaded them before. I'm making those new icons simply because none of them are closely (or look exactly) like the original version (the one on gpl.exe), which gives a different style feeling.

I like your version Xiang! Still I'd try to find some other typeface for GPL letters.

Thanks for the feedback! The typeface is the exact one shown on original exe (I drew the bezier path over the top of original to ensure they are as close as possible), and since different people have different preference which I don't want to interfere, but I totally agreed with you that it wasn't really looking good. However you can edit the svg image to remove the old typeface and add a better one you prefer (preferably with Inkscape, which is free and very powerful vector editor).

Is this the desktop icon? If so, the problem is we don't use it when we use GEM. We need one like shown for GEM.

Right click on the shortcut, select properties, change icon on the bottom of the popped up window, browse to the location of the icon, select the icon, OK out of all the windows.
