Newicons greater than 93x93: how is it possible?

I read that 93x93 was the hardcoded limit for Newicons, but noticed (with stunned disbelief) that there are 120x96 Newicons in the PygmIconsNX archives on the Abime download page. Iconian won't save Newicons greater 93x93.

I have a few icons that are greater than 93x93 that I need to save in Newicon format to prevent colour 0 from being transparent (now using Birdie icon floodmask). How can I do this?

Use the program Convert35Icon to convert an OS3.5 colour icon to a newicon - it's on Aminet. Be aware that the original pic should be 32 colours max for both frames, otherwise it's likely the program will guru when you try and save as the newicon will be too large (if it's more than 30kb it crashes).

That's what I thought you'd say, but Convert35Icon has never worked for me and does absolutely nothing on my Amiga (yes, I know about the c35i.library).

I've always used the newer ConvertColorIcon by the same author, but this program won't convert icons greater than 93x93.

So I guess I'm screwed.

You need newicons installed correctly to use the program, WB3.1+ in ROM or softkicked, and a late version of icon.library (v44+ from memory). Works perfectly for me.

Yes, I have everything required. I've tried this program 5 times over the last 3 years.

I just spent (wasted) a few hours testing it. So far, the only icon I could successfully convert is a small simple icon drawn in 3.9 IconEdit. When I created icons in 3.9 IconEdit from images, they don't convert. Existing colour icons don't convert. I can see in SnoopDos that it doesn't write (successful one did).

I don't get it. (...and man, it's painful using that slow, crappy 3.9 IconEdit!)
