I'm happy to help. The most time consuming part is changing the IDs so that all icon packs can work together without issue. Identical IDs prevent the program from loading. I'll likely send them to you one at a time when I finish them.

Funny, drathe, I just corrected a ton of issues with that.

My only issue comes from adding the German board. Can that be selectable?

Then please don't work at it!
I'll be changing the conflicting IDs for the next days and will let you know when the fixed Icon Packs are online.
Thanks for your time! I'd like to ask something, though: do you write instructions manually, or is there an automatic process? 'Cause I wouldn't ask you to lose all that time.

Not within HeroScribe; you'd need to change 5 files (Objects.xml, Icons/Raster/Europe/Board_EU.png, Icons/Raster/USA/Board_US.png, Icons/Vector/Europe/Board_EU.eps.gz, Icons/Vector/USA/Board_US.eps.gz) from time to time; sorry about that.
Cheers

Okay, let me know when you're finished with that and I'll start once you're done.

I write them manually, but after I did the first template I showed you back in January they aren't that difficult for me to do. I just reuse the template and swap out the code for each pack. It's no trouble at all and I would like to do it.

Joe, I recommend creating two additional folders within HeroScribe. Name one Original Files and the other Modular Files. Inside each, store a copy of the Objects.xml, Icons/Raster/Europe/Board_EU.png, Icons/Raster/USA/Board_US.png, Icons/Vector/Europe/Board_EU.eps.gz, Icons/Vector/USA/Board_US.eps.gz files. One set for your original HeroScribe and the other for the Modular version. Then all you have to do is copy and paste the contents into the main HeroScribe folder before loading the program when you want to switch.

Ok, that was fast!
I should be done, some icon packs didn't need any change, these one instead did need some tweaks: Azrael's, Battle Masters', Derfel's, Dewayne Agin's, Dragon Strike's, drathe's, Dungeons and Dragons', Flint's, Frodo's, Grampasso's, Geat Slayer's, HeroQuest.Es', Not.Found's, Phoenix's & Warhammer's.
You should re-download 'em, then start to work on the instructions whenever you can/want.

Well, thanks drathe, that's very nice of you. Please take all the time you need to make them.
I remember slightly modifying the file you sent me on January, would you please use this template instead of yours? It's pretty much the same, but I like it more.
Again, thank you very much for the effort.
Cheers

drathe, please be aware I've added an icon to Elessao Icon Pack and several others to SemiModular Icon Pack (room borders from x1 to x5 and a room border corner; unfortunately there seems to be a slight alignment bug that I can't seem to fix).

EDIT
From today is available on HeroScribe.Org the All-In-One Icon Pack, featuring almost every pack I've been working on.
Cheers

I like the idea of 'smaller' rooms/boards, however, why can't we who prefer the 'US' style mess with these? Is there a reason for it?

There's something I must be missing, as long as I know every Icon Pack features both european and north american versions.
What's the Icon Pack you're referring to, Phoenix, and what exactly it's not working?
Thanks!
Cheers
