View Full Version : Lightwave icons need a diet?

05-08-2004, 05:06 PM
I just noticed that the 5.6 icons are skinny compared to the 7.5 and 8 icons.

that's because of all the extra content:D

I was having this problem for a while, then I had a problem where the icons were switched (modeler objects had layout icons) but at some point either a restart, repair, or something along those lines, caused things to go back to normal again.

..Matt's Icons are tiptop .. missed of my personal favourite though.. "Motion Mixer" ....

How about it Matt?

I believe riki's problem is due to the fact that "Classic" isn't installed on his HD.
Maybe upgrading to Panther, something that's less reliant on Classic would do the trick...but I'm just guessing ;)

Hey mlinde, are those the new LW 8 icons or custom ones??

Thanks mlinde, I've repaired disk permissions but no change. Actually since installing OSX I've never seen a LW Icon. Not sure what's up with that?

Those are the default ones, AFIK. I've never made custom ones. Riki, do you have something like DiskWarrior? If you do, run it, and "graph" your drive, to see how the directory file looks. If it's really tweaked, that may be part of the cause of your problems. Since LW is a Carbon App, and (theoretically) still runs in OS 9, the resource fork may be damaged somehow on your system. I don't know how to fix that is OS X other than DiskWarrior, since it's not a regular part of OS X files anymore. If the machine you use boots into OS 9, you might try rebuilding the desktop directory in OS 9 (Hold down CMD-Option at startup) the reboot in OS X to see if that works.

Thanks mlinde, I don't have OS9 on my HD, I run 9 off an external Firewire Drive, I wanted to keep the two seperate. Not sure if that has any effect??

I'm plannig to upgrade soon from 10.1.5 to 10.3.3 so hopefully that might also help sort things out.

Those look like they came straight out of the 80's....I prefer the LW 7.5 icons.

Oh well :(
