    Solid work mate!
    When I read the thread title I thought about becoming a "provider" here as well as I'm building my own icons with Photoshop for every game I need it but yours are way better than mine so ...
    Instead of sharing my inferior stuff I went on to even use your Zelda icons for my Loadiine SD card.
    And while we're talking ...
    I'd need:
    • The Legend of Zelda - Link's Awakening DX (GBC)
    • The Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past (SNES)
    • Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart (GBA)
    • Street Fighter 2 - The New Challengers (SNES)
    • Super Probotector: Alien Rebels (SNES)
    Edit: Maybe a wiki should be set up for this or the injection compatibility wiki should be extended by the possibility to upload icons as TGAs there. :)

    Just create an empty meta folder.
    Then put in the two needed tga files.
    Wait a moment, I'll edit this post in a few minutes.

    Edit:
    Put in at least iconTex.tga (128x128)
    and if you want a background bootTvTex.tga (1280x720).

    Create a meta folder next to the content and code folder.
    In that new folder, you have to put a .tga image called: "iconTex"
    Hope that helps!

    A .tga is basically an image file. use Paint.NET to convert my images to .tga, then rename it and put it in the meta folder. :)

    I just google title screens (you know, where you have to press start in each game), open them up with Photoshop, put them in a 128x128 shape and save them as TGA.
    The same goes for the background. Just google for a big screenshot or something that you like and put it in a 1280x720 shape, then save as TGA.
    Change names to the correct ones as mentioned in my post above and place them in the meta folder. That's all.

    Edit: @MelonSpeedruns sorry for double posting what you already said. Just wanted to add how to do it for background images as well. :) And of course Paint.net, GIMP or any other tga capable program is more than enough.
    Edit 2: @Migalis The download covers feature from Loadiine GX has nothing to do with the icons from this thread.
    If you named your game folders on your SD card correctly* you can make Loadiine download cover box arts for carousel view mode.

    These icons here by MelonSpeedruns are just for the grid view (which I prefer) :)

    *correctly means to have the correct ID6 tag in these [ ] brackets at the end of folder name.
    Find them out by looking up your games at gametdb.com

    Thank you very much! Looking fantastic! Can't wait for Dragon Quest Monsters! =)

    Where do you get GBC VC games? Does injecting GBC work in GBA?

    Yep! You can turn GB(C) roms into GBA roms using the Windows PC tool Goomba Front (Color) and then inject them. It's very easy. You could even put multiple Gameboy Roms into one GBA Rom and chose at each startup what you wanna play (although I prefer one game per VC).
    Just tell me if you need any help with this. Although we might should make a tutorial wiki for injection in general to help everyone.

    No problem, man!

    EDIT: I'm done with the icons so far!

    EDIT2: If there is any new requests, i'll do them tonight, since I have school stuff today. :\
    To make it easier to keep tracks of requests, I added a Google Forms link to the main post. I won't take requests of people in the posts anymore. Sorry :(
