I tried to use some SRD plugins to customize the title screen, they didn't work but not only that this happened (the icon of the game looks like this) and I don't know how to fix it. Does anyone have any idea how to solve it? ;w;
I already deleted the plugins from the plugin folder and I tried changing the icon with other image but it also doesn't change.

The icon in the window itself looks fine.

Sorry, but I don't see any problems with your icon. Could you provide a picture or describe what exactly is wrong with your icon?

Hmmm. This is quite odd. You said you did replace the icon in the icon folder, correct? And it was renamed "icon.png?"

yap, and it didn't solve it so I left it with the default icon again. I think that the only thing that it did change was also mess up the icon in the window of the game.

Well, I might be stating the obvious, but it seems that MV is having trouble loading your CommunityBasic plugin. Try turning off all of your plugins, see if that helps, and then turn each one on to see which one is affecting the icon.

I turned them all off and that error doesn't appear anymore but the icon problem is still unsolved.

When I turned them off I noticed that in the plugins folder I don't have the normal plugins that a project has. What.

I had the same issue a long time ago when I used SRD plugins.

I still don't know what exactly is the issue but I DO know that the plugins do something to your "package.json" found in your project folder.

When I had the problem I created a new project and overwrote my package.json with the one from the new project. This restored my icon to normal but I had to abandon the SRD plugins for the time being.

I think that @ScorchedGround's solution will work well. Take a new project, replace the pack.json, and you should be good to go.

Yeah, thank you both for taking the time to help me with this issue :'D

The icon in the window stays with the default icon.
Like, it shows the one I made but then after a few seconds it changes to the default one.

Ah yes... I remember I had that problem afterwards aswell.

I actually did solve it somehow... but I can't remember how I did because that was quite long ago.
But I do remember that the solution was pretty easy... but I just don't remember what exactly I did.

I will tell you how to solve it when I remember again, sorry.

Go to your project folder and then to your "save" folder.

Then you have to delete either "config.rpgsave" or "global.rpgsave".
I can't tell you which one to delete since I deleted both of them, so maybe you should too.

Don't worry, the files will be restored when you save in the game again. The only thing that happened to me is that the options in the game (like the sound-volumes) are reverted to default, which shouldn't be a problem as you can just put them back to what you want afterwards.

I did it but it didn't solve the problem. Maybe I should change the name of the icon? Is it possible?

I don't think that's something you can do, sadly... I'm pretty sure RPG Maker is hard-coded to only use "icon.png" as it's icon...

Well I am really sorry then. I don't know what else to do since I am pretty sure this worked for me.

You could try deleting the entire "save" folder and look if it works then.
Just like before, if you start your game and save it, the folder will reappear.
Other than that, I have no idea how to fix that.

I guess I'll just accept that this game is going to have the default icon :kaocry:
The next time I should make a git so I can just restore a previous version if something bad happens.
Thanks for the help anyways, it did help me.

Not necessarily. If it doesn't break anything, when the game is deployed, you can manually go into the files and change the icon in there, that'll make it permanent! I think Driftwood has a tutorial about it...
