As much as I also like the new animated main menu, I'm afraid it won't get into the game until someone with C++ skills comes along and adds support for it. Therefore the first step would be to change the main menu to use the new logo instead. The question then, is what it should look like. That's one reason why I've tried to stick with the sign post concept - the change wouldn't take long to do. Would it work with a green background on the sign?

In how many places is a logo used at the moment?
We have: the forum, the google code page, an icon for the game itself, I could add it to the Windows installer. Any more places I've forgotten?

There's also the twitter and facebook page

I can change the current background with the latest of my traffic sign concepts. I think it's okay to deviate slightly from the official logo in the main menu, because it is the same shape. (Unlike for example the current main menu logo and the forum logo).

About the animated menu; It's not necessary to implement the animation right away, I can also render a still of the scene and some different poses for the right hand and the stick. I've also been working on the menu items lately. If you add all that together you could build up a menu much like the bank manager menu.
This would still take some work so I'll update the current menu first.

Since everyone involved in the discussion have agreed that it looks good I'll start changing to this new logo at the places I can remember. :-)

Could you make a version that is 164x314 in some way (with things around it if you wish), that I can use in the installer's first page to the left? It does preferably contain some kind of spacing at the edges.

Is this what you mean? I made two different dimensions because I measured that the image in the installer has a dimension of 192x388.





What do you mean with the spacing? Should I add a white border or should I shrink the logo a little bit so that it doesn't get cropped?

The spacing was just depending on what type of thing you made. This works perfectly. :-) It scales the image automatically, so in this case the lower one looks better in my opinion, since you can see a little more of the hospital.

He Edvin, The four google groups (discussion lists) still use the old logo. Can you update them?

Here is the links, making it faster for you to change them.

Announcements: https://groups.google.com/group/corsix-th-announce/icon
Development & Discussion: https://groups.google.com/group/corsix-th-dev/icon
Change notifications: https://groups.google.com/group/corsix-th-updates/icon
Translators: https://groups.google.com/group/corsix-th-translators/icon

All of them are 42x42 px png.

Any reason why the links are pointing to different images? Couldn't they just point to the same image?
Or have Google hard-coded it to be this way?

They unfortunately aren't really connected at all from Google's point of view...

Hmm. It seems that this feature has been disabled for google groups. :-( And I'm not administrator for two of them.

It would've been nice, but it's not a really big deal.

Its not a logo as such but I've been using these file icons on my computer for a while (I'm not a fan on the originals)
