actions.2da define most actions that are going on - as a reference this list is used by the GetCurrentAction function.

This page is expanded to include lots of panel actions and radial actions and their icons, for ease of reference (ie: most "ir_" icons).

These icons are square, by default 32x32 but can be a higher resolution.

actions.2da contents and Icons List

These are from actions.2da for reference. Note how some of them use a generic icon and this could be updated.

See ir_cast.tga below, not referenced here. Would it be used if it was? Probably not, since spells dragged to quickbars are of a particular spell not a generic "cast", and the icon in the action menu is also the spell icon.

Hardcoded Actions/GUI things and Icons Not Included in actions.2da or I Can't Believe It's Not An Action!

The actions.2da file is hardcoded in so far as new actions cannot be added, although icons and the STRING_REF can be altered.

There are several actions that can be selected but don't have a way of changing their icon except replacing the file wholesale. Generally these are in radails and on the quickbar.

ir_cast.tga

As per above "Cast" action has a blanked icon, likely because the spell being cast icon is used instead dynamically.

This is used on the radial menus for casting spells.

Cut Actions or I Can't Believe This Used To Be An Action!

These are present in the game files and potentially tell a nice story of what the GUI once had on it.

Icon NameIcon

Description and Notes

ir_abort.tga

Presumably the GUI had an "Abort" option for actions, maybe it was once more turn based.
ir_animalemp.tga

Unused blue animal empathy action icon. The one used for skills is green with a horse instead.
ir_atkaggr.tga

Old green (!) icon. Likely related to cut associate actions available in the menu, ie; "Attack Agressor", see also Hardcoded TLK Lines
ir_atkmytgt.tga

Same as above, unused associate actions, in this case "Attack my target".

ir_auracour.tga

Presumably "Aura of Courage" action icon, which was turned into a basic defensive feat for Paladins (ie; Immunity to Fear).
ir_back.tga

"Back" option, this is an unusually designed placeholder.

ir_blank.tga

Old icon style, only used by the deleted "Dragon_Wing_Buffet" in spells.2da.
ir_call_fam.tga

Call Familiar old blue icon, replaced by feat and ability icons.
ir_callanml.tga

Call Animal Companion old blue icon, replaced by feat and ability icons.
