Did you include it with an all-in-one package? I keep getting errors when I make a bundle.

I double check my package today. Normally I attached the date to each name in order to avoid these problems.

So, it's done now.
* I installed a new heroscribe in a separate folder (that's heroscribe 2004)
* I downloaded the all in one pack and put it in the same folder (that's heroscribe 2014 + all the many icons)
* I put my icons on top of that pile
* I added my object.xml to that other object.xml

I found one failure: The Beastman. The rest works. I corrected that failure and uploaded the new icon.zip to my google drive.

Man that's annoying. That typical programmer problem: It works! on my computer.
Maybe the way how the all in one pack is presented, is the right way: Having an entire installation to copy over your existing installation.

Does anyone here have the opportunity to contact the Chierichetti brothers? It would really be cool to have it on their home page (well, once it works) :-)

OH MY HELL!! After staring at this stuff forever, I finally figured out why I couldn't get this to work. This has been driving me insane. Here's the problem: your xml file uses the character '\' to denote folders, but because I'm on a Mac, I need to use '/'. Son of a ...

No! :D

Alright, here is the link to download Heroscribe with the all-in-one icons plus the HQ25 icons added in. It can also be found in the Heroscribe link in my signature.

Anderas, I renamed all of the beastman files with your name in the same style the other icon add-on packs named them. At some point I may do the same with the others, but I've got too much going on now. I tested this on a Mac and on Windows and it works fine on both. I have not tested it on Linux yet, so I can't guarantee functionality on that platform. If anybody has any issues, let me know.

The Beastman is Idiomenas' Beastman. I just had it added to the HQ25 folder, too, to have everything in one place.

And I updated that software of mine, so that future additions won't have the same problem anymore. Whenever that happens. :-)

Thanks Stratos!

I did it the "sneaky" way. Just copied the files over others I didn't care for.

Anderas sent some additional files to be included in the HQ25 Heroscribe package, so here is the new package. He added some colored squares, multicolored Fimir icons, and a couple of colored doors. Also included are the dash and zero icons I created for Stoner81.
