Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: My antivirus says that this program is virus!
A: If your antivirus detects this program as trojan, you probably have McAfee, Comodo, eSafe or Prevx. They don't know anything about exe-optimization-by-hands and UPX. Therefore I recommend to change antivirus.

Q: What's all those BLP settings for?
A: Check butman_readme_eng.txt.



Change log for v1.8.2:
  • Extended PNG support
  • Fixed bug when saving icon with enabled transparency view
  • Fixed bug with incorrent saving in JPEG format

    If you mean by that "change borders on standard icons", then answer is yes.

    Does this tool support transparency? When I tried to make info cards then it leaves the checkered transparent layer, as if it is colouring in itself. Any way to remove this?

    EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out. Awesome tool anyway!
