BootIt UEFI and ICON16.DAT

BootIt UEFI freezes at boot, if you add ICON16.DAT.
Any ideas?

I already found a solution.
It is necessary to replace in ICON16.DAT in the hex editor "FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF" to "00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00".
I'm right?

I also think that the palette in the file graphics.zip is incorrect. Right here https://www.upload.ee/files/8797790/TeraByte1.act.html

And how many icons can I add?

That would do it for now, it's not the correct format though.

What made you try that?

The pallet may have assumed 16 bit color rather than 32 bit. If I recall,
the act file was exported from PSP. Did you import the others and export
the .act ?


The ReadMe.txt says:
You can create up to 56 addtional custom 16x16 icons you can use on the boot
menu.

But it works. :mrgreen:
.act I took from this file download/file.php?id=82
Opened the file in Photoshop and exported the palette.
