Comparing the folders *Assets.xcassets* in the generated build folder between a classic and alloy project, the alloy *AppIcon.appiconset* and *LaunchImage.launchimage* contains inconsistent images, even though the file naming convention is correct. See attached images for comparison.

Steps to reproduce

1. Create a ti classic project: ti create 2. enter project folder 3. Create Alloy: alloy new 4. Compile Alloy: alloy compile --config platform=ios 5. Build project: ti build -p ios -I 9.0

Expected result

images in assets catalog should be consistent

Actual result

appicon-60@2x.png and appicon-60@3x.png is different from the rest Default-Landscape-736h@3x.png and Default-667h@2x.png and Default-Portrait-736h@3x.png is different from the rest *Note*: because of this, appc run is seeing the same issue.

  1. Chris Barber 2015-08-20 This is NOT an asset catalog issue. The actual images in the project directory are different: https://github.com/appcelerator/alloy/tree/master/platforms/ios/project/app/assets/iphone. So, we can either A) resolve this ticket as invalid, B) fix all icons to be same branding, or C) remove all app icons except appicon@2x.png. As for the launch images, you can simply either leave them alone or fix the branding in each of them. Since I don't care either way and we don't have an Alloy champion, I'm going to defer to [~ingo] to make the call.
  2. Feon Sua Xin Miao 2015-08-20 I vaguely remember there's a PR that updated all template assets, https://github.com/appcelerator/alloy/pull/505/files, and then followed by another one that reverted the changes, https://github.com/appcelerator/alloy/pull/522/files. However the changes is not backported to the master branch, and resulted in the inconsistency. To avoid confusion, I'm gonna cherry-pick the back-out change of graphics to master.
  3. Chee Kiat Ng 2015-08-20 yay! Feon to the rescue!
  4. Chris Barber 2015-08-20 But that PR has the wrong size for the ios appicon@2x.png. Make sure you don't lose that version. It has to be at least 180x180.
