    Thanks to @SodaSoba for testing the tool and for creating over 2500+ custom icons on his Icon Repository; otherwise this tool would have been empty at release time

    After creating the Horizontal and Vertical Themes, I started working on a tool that simplifies the method of creating and transferring custom icons

    All details are posted on the GitHub page, so please follow the links below:

    Note: Sys-Tweak is required in order for custom game icons to work

      • Main Folder selection removed; now default folder
      • Scan status text updates in progress bar
      • New button added: Auto GIC

      • Custom Title / Author / Version added; This will generate a config.ini to change the metadata of games on your switch

      • Output header renamed to Icon Name (which is the file name for the icon)
      • Note: Output folder is cleared when NX GIC
    • File > Settings
      • Installed Titles List (CSV) path (delete only option)
    • File > Title IDs (New)
      • Show Icons for Installed Games only; displays icons for games loaded via titles.csv
      • Show List of Installed Games (CSV); pops a separate window to view what games are loaded via titles.csv
      • Install NX Titles List Dumper(NRO); downloads app > copies it to Switch > then copies game list .csv back to NX GIC

    1.2.0 Patch Notes:
    • Main display for icons updated to show multiple icons in a row
    • Scan button now displays a progress indicator in the status bar

    • Title ID can now be edited in the Output view
    1.1.0 Patch Notes:

    A Very cool tool! Happy to have helped.
    I'll slow down a little on icons, but I'll continue to add as many as I can.
    It's nice to be able to swap from 1 theme to another and just FTP all the icons required.

    @HoTsHoTz79 : u must make your soft offline, i can't use it without internet. You need to create a database offline.

    Oh, this is great! The vertical shape is the closest thing I have seen to the "concept theme", which simulated the icons as game boxes, I will try some images that simulate the box.

    How are you trying to transfer?

    If mtp are you using a mtp server application on the switch?

    Or if you're transfering via FTP are you running a FTP server on the switch?

    I would add that FTP transfer is significantly faster

    Like @SodaSoba mentioned, make sure you're switch is ready in Mtp or ftp mode first... Then pick the method and finally click transfer

    When you click transfer select FTP use the switch ip, the port isn't required as it defaults to 5000 which I believe is standard port all the FTP applications use.
    The program will auto try to connect to that ip, probably the reason it fails if you don't run the FTP server first.

    Coding is almost completed... Should have it ready by tomorrow!

    I'll also provide a guide on how to work offline (1) how to download Icon database (2) download Title ID database
