New launch icon

Incredibly unimportant, but how about an updated launch icon for the game? I volunteer Shockbolt to craft one!

The current one is looking rather dated, and even tho it's an old skool game, I don't see why we shouldn't have a shiny icon for launching from Windows or MacOS

If that Icon was good enough for your Grand-Daddy's Angband, it's good enough for yours! Why, I used to have to walk uphill, barefoot, in the snow, to play Angband...

A new icon would indeed be nice.

I remember being surprised that Angband even had a launch icon other than the OS default icon for an application...

</irrelevant>

Ah! I played it on a Mac II system, everything had an icon there. I was spoiled I guess.

Sure, it had an icon, but it was that "diamond with a hand" icon that was the default icon for runnable applications.

Gods, you're making me think way way back... Used to play Rogue on a B/W Mac, then was playing NetHack, mentioned on a BBS how much I enjoyed Rogue and someone pointed me to Angband like a month or two before Ben Harrison took over official development. I cannot recall the Icon, if any from back then, I just recall, vaguely, a monochrome?(8bit??) one reminiscent of the current icon.
