Default [APP] [27 April 09] hComber v0.1 - Change WM6.5 Start Menu

hComber is a program to change Icons of start menu icons for WM 6.5



Now u can change the icons inside the folders as well.

Thanks a lot to Twolf for the icon

Feedbacks and Donations are my inspiration.

Gratulation, work fine on HD. but also create a new folder in start menu. There already is an original icon.In new folder does not give the new icon.

Looks great, will try it, thank you.

Your probably not taking request for now, but here are a few future ideas....

- Icon themes. ^_^
- Change icons order: Changes the values from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Start\ *\Rank
- Save/load icons order: Backups the full regkey from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Shell\StartInfo\StartI nfo
- Change the icon's size: Changes the StartMenu_GridScene_***x***.cpr XML or overwrites the Windows .CPR pre-stored in the app's folder.
- Change the star menu columns number: The same as above.

I am no longer developing for the Windows Mobile, sorry...

My contribution:


Only did 29 icons, wont do the hundreds of others for other softwares, hehehe, sorry about that.
Included a 200x200 px and 45x45 px pngs, also the original FLA where I made them, it opens with flash CS3.
Enjoy.

Congrats again on this great software, if you need a Icon for it, let me know.

DONATE TO ME
That's creepy, I had just started work on a very similar application last night, but fortunately you've approached it differently than I have, so I doubt our projects will clash.

Hope you don't mind, but I might 'borrow' some of the suggestions you've got for start menu ordering. Themes could be done by simply saving the values in all of the registry entries in a simple XML file. (Remember nested folders, which it doesn't look like HComber can handle right now)

Might take me a couple of days to complete mine, it's not even got a real name yet...

Out of interest, which language have you written HComber in?
If you appreciate my work, please consider making a donation.

awesome stuff mushi. no more flashing roms just to get the pretty icons thanks for icons too twolf! and is it just me, but when icons are put into folders, say i move album into multimedia, i loose the actual icon. it reverts to the old style icon. not necessarily related to the app. i think just 6.5 in general. although, if i copy the icon back into the folder from start menu, it will get the new style icon to display. just weird i thought
