You mean icons which indicate the game in question? I guess something  
like bigger versions of the icons found on <http://www.scummvm.org/ 
downloads.php#extras> are what you are looking for? Copyright issues  
might make it impossible to include something like that in ScummVM.

A generic ScummVM icon would be possible however, maybe something  
like <http://www.scummvm.org/favicon.ico> just bigger?

Which reminds me of yet another question: Who created <http:// 
www.scummvm.org/favicon.ico> anyway? Do we have bigger versions of  
that (32x32 8 bit up to 128x128, ARGB 32 bit), something which we  
could consider using as a new, unified ScummVM icon? Right now, we  
have the good old ugly scummvm.ico, we have scummvm.icns (used on OS  
X and looks completely different, see <http:// 
icon-32x32-8bit.gif>), and some other ports probably use yet another  

I really would like to see us have a single, recognizable icon
