Titan Icon is a small program that unlocks the City of Heroes costume creator for offline use. You can create, edit, load and save costumes, as well as preview power animations.Downloadhttp://repo.cohtitan.com/icon/icon.exeWiki Pagehttp://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Titan_Icon
See this page for lots of useful extra information about how to load zones and spawn NPCs!Source Code
If desired, the source code may be accessed with a Git
client. The repository URL is http://repo.cohtitan.com/icon/icon.git
. The source code is not needed to run Icon and is only for educational and development purposes.Requirements
You must have either the latest Issue 23 (version 2320.201207182341.1) or Issue 24 (version 2400.201208211101.1) game client installed. The NCSoft launcher is not
required. The Issue 24 client has more costume parts available and is recommended if you have it.Instructions
- Save icon.exe into your City of Heroes program folder. On a default install, this may be in C:\Program Files\NCSoft\City of Heroes, or C:\Program Files (x86)\NCSoft\City of Heroes on 64-bit systems. It should have a cityofheroes.exe file in it as well.
- Use Explorer to browse to that folder, and double click icon.exe. You can create a shortcut to it if desired.
- Certain weapon unlocks (Rularuu weapons, Romulus weapons, etc) still don't work. Space in the exe is getting really tight so I don't know if there's a way to fix this. You can still use NPC mode to access them.
NPC Edit Mode
To launch the game in NPC Edit mode, you need to run Icon with a -n switch.
On Windows, the easiest way to do that is to create a shortcut to icon.exe (right click on icon.exe and use "Create Shortcut"). Once its created, right click on the shortcut and go to properties.
In the first box, "Target", go to the VERY end of the line, after everything else. Add a space, then type -n
Hit OK. You can then rename the shortcut so that you know it's for the NPC editing version, or move it to your desktop if you want.
