Here's a pic of my fallout2 icon.

That's not the pic that's pointed out in the properties tab.

It looks suspiciously like an old poster. Tom Stobie?:confused:

Should I be worried?

The Icon cache does get corrupted on Windows. The easy way to fix the problem is to reboot. There are other ways to get Windows to flush the icon cache, but as I run Firehand and use their little tool to do that, I don't recall what is built into Windows to do that.

You can do it in XP with TweakUI, Repair -> Repair Icons.

Cool idea, but that didn't work.

I'm wondering if the Fallout2 patch wasn't tampered with.

Run a virus scan. Then a spy scan.

THEN reboot. If the icon stays like that, then it probably looks like that. Upload it as an attachment to this thread, if you want. Plenty of tools to strip it out, available as freeware.

And check under properties, icon on your shortcut. See what it's set to.

No, the icon looks like this... the correct icon appears in the properties window on the right.

It's not corrupted. Go check out the icon on the CD.

I noticed that a few months back. I thought it was quite funny, actually :) I think they've managed to get some kind of hidden/Easter Egg/just plain bizarre icon deal happening for the Fallout games.

And it's not just 2, it's Fallout 1, also. Go check :)

Amateur? Hah!

I once finished the game with the Pariah Dog!!!! Uphill both ways in a snowstorm! And my shoes kept falling off!
