Hi everyone!
I've looked into this topic a whole lot, and no threads from the past seem to have come to a definitive conclusion. Changing the game icon for Windows is super easy- you just change the icon file in the games resources. However, this does absolutely nothing when running the game on Mac. Does anyone have any solution to this?
Even going into the game's contents after deploying and changing the .icns file does nothing.


Hi all! I decided to mess around a bit more and ended up coming across a solution by combining a couple different proposed solutions I had found. Hopefully this thread can help anyone else struggling in the future!

To solve this issue, you right click on the, then go to "show package contents." From here, go to Contents -> Resources, and then change the app.icns to your icon (you can find places to convert from png to icns online, make sure you keep the same name). This wont change anything immediately, which is where I got caught up, but all you have to do is rename the to something random, and then change it back to game, and your change should go through.
I ran into one issue where it switched back after testing it one more time, but changing the name again fixed it. Best of luck everyone!

This thread is one that I had looked at and attempted to use. I don't think it had any impact on my final outcome, but if this isn't working for you it can't hurt to try my instruction again but using this thread in tandem.

I tried your method but when the game app has a name other than 'game' it doesn't use the assigned icon.
Here is the assigned icon:

When the app is named 'game':

When the app is named something else:

The icon.png was implemented in the games files before deployment, so I'm not sure whats causing this issue. I've used other engines like ren'py and they worked fine when it came to changing the game icon.

just discovered thig game called Willowbrooke Post... beautiful artstyle if I do say so myself... does anyone know what this kind of style is called??
In one of my game projects, I am working on an arena where you can fight combatants or bet on monsters, and, man, it is taking so long, lmao. I do not think that it helps that I am using an evented combat system with a lot of things that I have to edit.
Time to take a little break from the project to work on another for Skyrim. Shouldn't take too long, as it's just fulfilling an easy to do request(more than likely I'll get beaten to the punch but...) this also gives me an excuse to play Skyrim again LOL.
I made two new friends today. I'm not sure which style I like the best..?
