Icon Change IOS

HI guys. I have run into a bit of a problem as I need to change my icon for my almost completed App. I do not want to download the app again as I have manually fixed all the errors. I have searched the forums but none of the posts really give me a descriptive answer. I have changed it on within the Buzztouch site side and uploaded it. How do I go about changing it within Xcode? Any help would be much appreciated :)

Hey @Sassy, No problem. Open your project, look for a folder called "Images.xcassets" and click on it. You will be given a choice to open AppIcon or LaunchImage, click on AppIcon. Right click on any icon and Show in Finder, that's where they hide. Just replace them, make sure that you keep the same name and size. Hope it helps, Farcat

Spot on @Farcat. So @Sassy, if you re-download your project all the images will be there in xcassette for you to copy over. I think they are in the BT_ART folder when it is downloaded, which you can see without importing the newer project into xcode. Alongside the images, there is a json file. I suggest you don't copy the json file in the xcassette folder, just in case it isn't the same as the one in your working project. Cheers, Alan

Cheers guys for you help. It is much appreciated :) I found them in the Art folder and replaced them with the new icon. Worked a treat :) But now I am getting an error on validation that " the bundle does not contain an app icon for iphone/ipod of exactly 120x120 .. So I put one in there to no avail :(

Have tou made sure that all the icons that you found originally were replaced? Looks like xcode is expecting an icon of 120px and not finding it.

I'm having a similar scenario: http://www.10kapps.com/BTiOSImages.png How did you resolve the missing images error based on the Xcode > Archive > Validate error report?

Hi @Nicks App, I posted the solution to this in a thread you also contributed to lol https://www.buzztouch.com/forum/thread.php?tid=62DFC85C5CF71E25D2DC87C&fid=06DB0BCB08E2222&sortColumn=FT.id&sortUpDown=DESC&currentPage=1 The problem with the "invalid image path" error is because the icon file locations in buzztouch projects have changed and there is a small bug now. The icon files are now referenced differently and all the ones you need are in images.xcassets. The references under CFBundleIconFiles and CFBundleIconFile in the BT_info.plist is a hangover from the 'old BT way' of referencing icons. Those plist references point to locations for the icons that buzztouch no longer uses. The plist entries are no longer appropriate and should be deleted. This crops up quite a lot, it would be helpful for the powers that be at BT to fix this centrally. Alan

As long as it is a proven "solution" :) Today, I will implement your solution on my App sitting in Xcode that failed Validation due to the Icons, and get all 16 of my Apps fixed up in Xcode, on to my iPhone, do screen captures of the 6 primary menu steps, and build the iTunes Store listings. Yesterday, I spent some time on the phone with Apple Developer support, and learned a few things. Prompted because Xcode threw an error about the Provisioning Profile. Interesting synergy between Xcode and my Apple Developer Member Center! Now, if only I could afford to be back in the UK!!
