Are there any plans to make new icons for version 2 of AutoHotkey?

Perhaps it should have new icons, at least the file-type icon, to help visually distinguish between v1 and v2 scripts. However, the benefits aren't that strong; so it might not happen unless someone creates icon(s) that the majority likes better than the current ones.

If possible, I'd like them to be as small in file size as the current icons (since the icons directly affect the size of each compiled script). For anyone other than an icon expert, this might be difficult because some of the current icons use unconventional palettes to achieve smaller size.

i'd like to create new icons for autohotkey, as well as a new program icon/logo - i'll have a try on this and post some results later :)

Thanks for the interest in icons and logos. Ideally, AutoHotkey version 2 should have a new icon, at least for its file type. So if anyone has a strong interest in this, it would help me if you or someone else would take over the discussion (with possible polls) to figure out which icons/logos people like the best.

Maintaining the web site and other support tasks has left me little time for development. So anything volunteers can do in areas like this is appreciated.

Another alternative icon: An alternative icon for AutoHotkey

It lacks support of suspended/paused states, though.

Taking PhiLho's advice (above) - is somebody able to use the [flame] of that image, to attach it to a key of your choice (what about the anykey :wink: ) ??
I guess that would look amazing as it uses a white background and therefore will fit perfectly at the Forums header. JM2€C 8)

Oops, looking back at my topic, I saw images were broken! I changed images folder to Images, and since the site is on Unix, case-sensitive on file names, the paths were wrong. Corrected.
Perhaps the Pause icon could be the same image without the flame (red key), the suspend one the same key in gray color...

Based on the two (linked) image samples I gave above, I've 'created' that rough AutoFlamingHotKey

(made with MSPaint :x)

I expect a Photoshop geek out there will provide a more professional one ASAP. Go for it! 8)

I will try to convince my wife to find some time. She does that kind of thing every day on her job.
