The one I made sucks (the blue question mark).

Maybe some of our graphics gurus can design a kick ass Cover Icon for fileless entries that replaces mine?
It should look like a Comic Cover (so no abstract shapes).

Format would be 340x512 jpg.

No it has to be a thumbnail cover. Like the current unknown, but with something better in it :)
No 3D, just a plain top down cover. ComicRack will make a 3D cover out of this on demand (see info dialog).

I'm currently working on the format icons.. will post them in 6-8 hours.

Once i do that, I'll start work on the unknown icon.

p.s. Try including the upcoming formats icon in the 0.9.139 release you are planning. When exactly do we expect 0.9.139: Sunday evening, i think?

.139 is basically done already.

It would be nice if you could already merge your icons into the packages that come with ComicRack and upload these.

You can play with font and colors, but I like that 'scream' face. ;]

nice collection :)

I took the question mark without text (as bitmaps are not localizable).

So, basically an icon with no text is preferred.

Honestly, the current one is a bit-too cartoonish, or child-like.



I liked your one better. (maybe I was more used to that).

Should I try more icons?

Is there any way to change the default icon by ourselves?
