Have you created a collection of avatars of your favourite pop-culture theme and want to share them with your friends or other people on the internet?
It’s easy to export an avatar collection from Board Game Buddy:
Navigate your way to the screen where you would normally choose your avatar set when starting a new game (Scoring > New Game > …)
Press and hold the avatar collection that you would like to export until the pop-up menu appears. Choose the EXPORT option.
Board Game Buddy will then create a ZIP file in the Downloads folder of your device. This ZIP file contains all the images in your avatar collection as well as the XML file that helps describe it. No need to open the ZIP file, just send it to your friends or post it online. Your friends can then import your collection by adding the set of new avatars on their device.
In Board Game Buddy it’s easy to change your avatar to almost any image on your device – including photos from your camera!
While playing your game, simply touch your current avatar and a dialog will open allowing you to choose a new one. Note that the avatars are sorted by their associated colours, but you are free to choose from any colour set.
To add a new image to the avatar collection, press the “add image” button (you may have to scroll to see it if there is a lot of avatars).
Your device image gallery will open and you can choose what file you would like to import.
Once you select your image, you can assign a colour to it. This only affects what set the image will be saved in, and the colour of the colour bar that appears behind it (you can turn that off if you want)
And now your new avatar is available for this and any future games !
Horizontal images work best.
Optimal image size is 300 x 200 pixels, but you should be able to copy any image to Board Game Buddy. Note that Board Game Buddy makes a copy of your image in its workspace, so nothing will happen to your original image (it will take up more space on your device howere)
Board Game Buddy recognizes alpha channels for images with transparent backgrounds (like PNG and WEBP files)
