    I want to know something.

    Is it possible to extract the xmb icons from the icontex.qrc file? ... Because I was wanting to replace the ingame icons with better resolution icons ... but with the system's own official icons.

    To tell you the truth, Sony made these icons with a bad quality.

    I've done the test of replacing the original icons with others with a better resolution extracted from themes ... and look ... the resolution looks much better than the original icons.

    yes, but each icon is compressed individually (unlike the wave), and there's around 70 of them, so it's tedious.

    I didn't modify icontex.qrc (because I have no idea how to modify it)... i did modify the xmb_ingame.rco.

    But I'll take your questions about ingame icons (the same as I had before).

    To the point, ingame icons have no direct relation to icontex.qrc, in other words, ingame icons are in the rco's ( It took me a while to notice this) If you want to change all icons in each category, you will have to look for the rco's responsible for them.

    For example, xmb_ingame.rco, in it you will have the same icons as the main menu, but you will only be able to modify the icons that are at the top of each category (Game, TV, Friends, Settings, User, Photos, Video, Music , PSN and Network).

    Since you want to change the trophies icon, then look for modifying explore_plugin_full.rco and explore_category_psn.rco ... I think these are enough.

    The rco's of each ingame category are called "explore_category _xxx.rco.

    like with a lot of things, you want to make sure the icons are smaller or the same in terms of size. otherwise, they won't fit in the hex. if it's smaller, just 0 pad the rest of the hex length.

    By the way ... is it possible to improve the quality of the icons by making them more "softer" without having to increase the resolution?

    Can you do that ?
