I've been trying to make a 16 and 256 color favicon.ico.
I've tried 16x16x16, 32x32x16, 32x32x256 .. same results every time.
When I place the .ico onto the desktop most of the colors show up as grey, but the icon looks perfect in all the icon editors I've tried.
I also haven't found a single application that can package multiple images into a single .ico file. I have a 78 color bmp original, Paint Shop Pro, and about 5 or 6 different icon editors. After a couple days working on this problem, I'm no closer to producing an .ico file containing working 16x16x16, 32x32x16 icons .. =(
The various websites talk all around the problem I'm experiencing without actually providing any solutions. Any one out there understand this issue?
