How to get my HexChat classic icons again

Hi, since HexChat >=2.9.4 there are some not very pleasant (UGLY AS HELL) icons in the userlist and channel tree. If you want to get back the nice classic coloured dots in your userlist do this:

  1. Download the old icons from HERE(all icons) or HERE(only userlist icons).
  2. Stop HexChat if you have it running.
  3. Put them into your data directory.
    1. Linux: usually ~/.config/hexchat/icons/ (if the folder does not exist - create it).
    2. Windows: go find it yourself.
  4. Start HexChat and enjoy.
