Start Menu Programs Icons

hey everyone. got a tp2 of course with the new start menu, so when u hit it, it goes to ur fav programs. and i have about 15 of them set. and i hated their icons so i downloaded this icon pack (96x96 pixels) and make a folder on my storage card with ones i wanted to use. so i went to registery, HKLM-SOFTWARE-HTC-MANILA-PROGRAM LAUNCHER and changed path for icon to that folder for all 15. they work and LOOK GREAT! but only problem now is they slow down the phone everytime i click on start because they all load VERY slow! anything im doing wrong? any way i can speed that process up? like if im in any program and i exit and goto that menu i have to wait a very noticable time.
if this is the price you have to pay for ahving nice icons, im just ganna go back to stock icons.

any suggestions? thank you

Re: Start Menu Programs Icons

Moving them off the storage card should help a lot. You could also try reducing their size and/or quality.

Re: Start Menu Programs Icons

Some GUI's like the shortcuts page can be configured to override the default icon. To change the default icons require a bit of hacking. They are most often encoded with the program's exe file or an accompanying resource dll file. Tsowen's custom taskbar thread might be a good place to get you started. It specifically talks about the taskbar icons, but the concepts are the same.

In general, icons will scale, so you can use just the one.
