    Inspired by @link6155's Simplok, I decided to make my own icon pack. The style focuses on minimalistic icons with some nice pixel art. My goal is to make icons for as much homebrew applications as possible. For the first version, i've included the ones that seem the most relevant to me (Standard emulators, RetroArch cores, *hax installers, svdt, and some others), but i'll obviously take requests and update the pack as more applications are released.​

    Download the files HERE.

    Installation:
    1. Download the "default" folder located on this repository as a ZIP file.
    2. Go into the /3ds/ folder in your SD card and backup it.
    3. Place the ZIP file in the /3ds/ folder and extract it.
    4. Replace the files if it asks you to do so.
    5. Done!
    The files won't harm your 3DS or the applications at all, but it's a good idea to backup the /3ds/ folder to keep the original .smdh files if you ever want to uninstall the icon pack. You can also replace the .smdh files manually for the applications you want only

    Q&A:
    • How does it work?
    • They're just the .smdh files of each application with the icon changed and uploaded.
    • Will this harm my applications?
    • No, but you'd want to make a backup anyway, just in case.
    • Is there going to be an automated installer someday?
    • I'd like to, but I lack the knowledge to do it.
    • Do I have to replace the .smdh file when I update an application?
    • No. The .smdh file only contains the info to be displayed in the Homebrew Launcher, but if you replace it, the original icon will be used.
    • Do I need all these folders with only an .smdh file on them?
    • The full icon pack contains all icons because in case that you decide to install a new app, you'd just have to copy the .3dsx file, avoiding replacing the .smdh. However, you can obviously replace each .smdh individually if you don't want the full icon pack.
    • If it's harmless, why should I make a backup of my 3ds folder?
    • There is the possibility that you may not like the icons and decide to uninstall them, and then you'd have the original .smdh files intact, without the need to redownload them. There is also the tiny chance that you might've downloaded a corrupt file.
    • Will you make alternate icons?
    • Some applications will definitively have an alternate version (for example, a Famicom icon instead of a NES for the emulator)
    • Why wasn't X application included?
    • As I said, the project is just starting, but you may request an icon in this post.
    • 3DSCraft seems pretty relevant, why didn't you make an icon?
    • As far as I know, 3DSCraft doesn't work as it should on the current *hax, so I didn't include it. When it works again, i'll update.
    • Why were some icons in the banner unused?
    • They will be used, but I lack the original .smdh files i'd have to edit (for example, Aperture Science 3DS isn't available as a compiled version and I haven't been able to compile it myself)
    • Do you need any help with this?
    • No. I want to make them myself, to keep a consistent style between all icons. However, you can help by telling me which apps need an icon.

    Looks great so far, just one thing I've notice based on the preview. The icon in the top right corner doesn't looks so great with that dirty yellow color. I try to avoid using pure yellow in most of my design as the color does not blend well with other colors.

    Thanks! But this color seemed fitting since it's for PlayCoinSetter

    I made so many? I swear I didn't count :lol: Thanks! However, keep in mind some of them may be repeated (for example, the icons for Gambatte and GameYob are the same.)

    Just updated the repository. The changes are:
    • Tweaked a bit the icons for PlayCoinSetter and For Anyone Who Walks A Lot
    • Added the icons for the remaining RetroArch cores (NXEngine, fMSX and Mednafen PCE)

    I can do that, but I'll need the original .smdh files for all these CFWs and the game you mentioned. If you could give me the links that'd help a lot!
