Finally, Version 1.0 release of Exoticons is here.

Exoticons currently comes in 2 flavours, NewIcons and an OS3.5/3.9 version.

Exoticons consists of 1500 icons created from high quality box scans of Amiga games. Certainly, it must be the largest game icon collection currently available for the Amiga. The Original scans and information can be found at the ExoticA website. (Although at the time of writing (31/05/2001) this only 1100 of the images are available for download at the site).

I recommend you use Exoticons with the excellent WHDLOAD - a great AmigaOS friendly game install package.

They also can be used with other HD install systems such as JST.

Each icon is 128 colours and has its own palette meaning they will probably not look good if you don't have many free pens (aga) or are viewing many on screen at the same time. The OS3.5/3.9 icons are 128x128 pixels in size. If you are using Scalos with the latest beta Icon System and a graphics card, you can enjoy the collection even more, as it does not suffer from sharing pens between icons.

Included with this release, as a bonus, is the latest version of my Game Information Text and a great little intro to watch to introduce the icons.

Software used to create Exoticons
  • ImageMagick - Excellent open source image manipulation program, that I used for the scaling and colour reduction.

  • Perl - For the image conversion scripting.
  • TVPaint
  • PPaint
  • Photogenics

ExoticA and Exoticons is an IRIS production.
Thanks to all the people who have helped to make this possible.

Use the icons as you wish, but always give credit where due.
