    Hi! I downloaded the emoticon creator, but I can't figure out how to actually open the program. Does anyone else here know how?

    Hey, it's very unfortunate but, Jestex passed away not long ago. This probably means end-of-life for this program.

    As noted, the author of this tool is no longer with us, so I'm going to lock and un-sticky the thread to avoid confusion in the future.

    10 Jan 2019 - @darthmorf will restore the links for this. The thread is re-opened.

    In the summer of 2015, @Jestex and @VOT released the first version of their Emoticon Creator, a desktop app that allowed you to create your own custom emotes that looked like the ones made for the forums :)), :dryadgrin:, :merchantconfused:, :nursewink: etc). Sadly, with the passing of Jestex in 2017 and the disappearance of VOT, the project was all but abandoned, and the original Emoticon Creator source code was lost.

    However, with the blessing of the TCF staff, and as a close friend of Jestex, I have brought this project back to life, in the form of a web-app!

    It is developed in pure HTML5 and JavaScript, and should work on pretty much any platform that has a modern, up to date web browser. You can find the source code on Github here.

    If you use this program to create an emote, please credit the tool by linking to this thread or the site itself! Thanks!

    Note: This thread is the original one created by Jestex, which was transferred to me in order to look after it and keep download links up to date, and to keep everything together.

    This looks really amazing, darth, it's a great step up and a neat way to revive the original program.
    Been online makes it much easier to access as well.

    It does cause a bit of flickering through the hair and head accessoires though.
    But I can understand that working with front-end code isn't simple.

    Overall, great job on reviving this. Jestex would've been happy to see this. :)

    The flickering is either due to it having to load or draw the images each time you update the settings - I plan to look into it but it's possible it's out of my control.

    Sadly I don't know any artists who're willing to make new sprites for the project. If someone were to create some of decent quality, I would happily add them!
