Some simple icons to add to your shortcuts...pointing to the .exe of every mod. There is no 69x...because i don´t use the 69 original mod.
I suggest the use of medium or large icons in the display properties of the folder!!!!!.

Diego!

I love the look of these icons but I can't work out how to use them on Windows 7. I've looked to how-to guides but I don't see the option anywhere to customise the icons for individual files; folders yes, but file-types no. Any ideas?

To start an EXE file more conveniently, most people set up a shortcut to it either in their Start menu, or on their desktop. You can change the icon for the shortcut by right-clicking on it, selecting 'Properties' and changing the icon from there.

Thanks for the tips. I've also managed to find a little programme called filetypesmanager which has allowed me (Windows7) to put individual icons for all setups (67's only). I had these icons years ago on WinXP as they could be used without any additional software. Does anyone have setup icons for the other mods?

I don't use these for the exe files but rather to link to my Player.ini files so that I can easily upload them to GPLRANK and Custom-Rank. I have a folder on the desktop called "Laptimes" and then add this to Quick Access in Windows Explorer. It makes it very quick to find and upload the correct file. :)

Going forwards, has anyone made a pair of icons for the 68 mod (Early and Late?) That would complete the set nicely. I did try myself but it looked like a 5 year old had made it with their eyes closed.
