I merged my file and the love.exe with the command copy /b game.exe. But the resulting executable has the default LÖVE2D icon.

Is there a way to change that icon to another one?

I don't know much about Love so I don't know if there is a built-in way, but you can change the icon of an executable file using a variety of icon editing software. Last time I did this in days of yore my weapon of choice was IconForge but I'm sure there are other tools available now (like these).

Thank you, using this way now! :) – Mark Hähnel Apr 13 '12 at 17:40
Glad to help, but give it a little time before accepting an answer in case someone else comes along with a better approach. I don't use Love myself. – jhocking Apr 13 '12 at 18:18
It looks like that's the way it's done. – user1201210 Apr 13 '12 at 22:13
