I’m happy to post about a new Master skin Icon Pack from artist, skinner, and all around great guy Paul Boyer aka mormegil.  However, this is much more than an icon set as this is also a fundraiser to help raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which Paul and his wife are part of the “Team in Training” program.

Stardock has joined the effort by donating all profits from this Master Skin sales to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help save lives.  Paul has also posted a blog about this effort, so please visit it and learn more about what they are doing for a great cause.

Now this has to be the biggest Icon Pack ever created.

“In the Marathon Icon suite I tried to capture the scope of running a marathon by creating a uniquely colored IconPackage for each mile of the Marathon - 26 IconPacks for 26.2 miles. The result is an amazing variety and over 1200 icons that will complement any desktop. To top this all off I included three additional IconPacks, themed for the “Team in Training” so you can show your support to the world, making a total of 29 IconPackages. This, to my knowledge, the largest Icon suite ever. “

Paul...Check out this LINK. Megan survived Leukemia and bone marrow transplantation, participates along with her father Jerry in "Megan's Mountain" which raises funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

I became (I hope) customer #1 for your Icon Pack in Megan's name...my contribution...a truly wonderful young woman, family and cause!

I just downloaded it.

Most of us spend more than this on a meal out on any day, this also makes you feel a lot better.

The rest of the packs are Sub Packs. If you dont see them make sure you have the latest version of Iconpackager. But therre should be a drop down in the above the Icon list and he right. Sorry about that. I ment to mention that you should make sure you update first.

Sub packs in action. You might need to re-install the package after you update IP, to make sure it installs correctly, if it dose not, you can just change the .IP to .ZIP, un compress the suite, and drop all the folders from the resulting Marathon Folder into your C:\Users\Public\Documents\Stardock\IconPackager folder. This should work with any version above 3.

Many thanks for the quick reply Paul, I tried uninstall/reinstall IP4.2 and redownloaded the IconPack but still no luck. No Worries tho as this is for a very worthy cause imho so I'll "play" with extracting from zip and if it doesn't work, I don't mind

Great set of Icons. Very worthy cause. I have a sugestion, Stardock is giving the 20% discount for this pack. I would have been willing to pay the full price. Maby they should remove the discount for the sale of this Icon set?

Kinger,
HA! I never thought I would here someone request that they remove a discount.
I think it would be harder to get that turned off then it would be worth the effort.

If you want to give more you can go directly to our donation page, and anything you give there is tax deductable.

this is one great icon pack, Just one thing i noticed is that the icons in the all programs menu don't change when the pack is applied, they remain windows default. But it's still well worth the money and for a good cause too.

Great job, Paul. I just downloaded my icon pack. I lost my mother to Leukemia and my father to Multiple Myeloma. Every dollar helps to combat this killer.

I have 64 bit Vista Ultimate which is the issue. I am a little upset this doesn't work but I just gave up on it.
