New set of standard icons for v2
those icons are primarily meant as a logo/program icon... i'll start working on filetype icons and tray icons next tuesday.
I really like AGUs 16x16 keyboard, but personally, I don't like the visual emphasis on AutoHotKey, though. No offense meant
I like the visual pun, and it makes it quite distinctive and easy to remember. I also like your design, simple and clean.
I don't like the visual emphasis on AutoHotKey, though.
Choosing will be hard... :-)
Perhaps there will be official icons for v.2, and Chris will offer to download a set of icons to personnalize your compiled scripts or to set for your files in Explorer and others.
I like the current "H" icons because the "H" is mnemonic; that is, it's easily memorized as being associated with AutoHotkey. However, if anyone can devise an image that's even more mnemonic (such as the flame image) while still being readily distinguishable at the tiny 16x16 size, that would be appealing.
The flame icon implies "hot", so it could be a strong contender. When the time comes, we could certainly put it to a vote; but there should be a screenshot of a taskbar at actual size to make the voting accurate.
I created the AutoHotkey one a while ago and I took the idea of the file icon from pdf.

Here's another take on a filetype icon. I didn't bother to tweak it to smaller sizes, though.
On a sidenote: Putting badges over filetype icons is discouraged; they should be integrated in the icon shape itself. (Source: Apple Human Interface Guidelines)
Titan, your versions look good, but I don`t think that they are good on practical usage. They seem to be huge on file size and the smaller (on pixel size) are not good identifiable. (But they look pretty cool to me.)
One question is, should the icon something really new and with character or more simple and recognizable? I think the last one is more important.
