Chosen icon file doesn't appear when making a build

  • #1, by shiritoruThursday, 05. May, 15:36 3 weeks ago
     Hello everyone. 
    So I created *.ico file, transparent background, 84x84 px size.  When building a game I trying to select this *.ico file as the icon option for the build. Build going well, no errors, but I can't see chosen icon as the result. Wrong size\anything else? The *.ico file is in the game folder. 
    Will appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    The engine expects a png or a readable format, because it needs to be resized, also 84x84 is not useful, windows wants 16x16, 32x32, 48x48 and 256x256. So better use a png and let the engine do it.

       Thank you so much! Tried to find out exactly this information.

     Ok, I've tried 256x256 and 48x48 PNG's both on solid and transparent backgrounds. 
    Looks like Mac build trying to make icon, (possibly, succeeded, I can't tell as I currently have no access to Mac). But Windows build doesn't even tried (please see my sloppy screenshot). No icon as the result.
