    Extension to change GM portrait

    I know NOTHING about extensions. I looked at an extension that someone made to change the GM portrait in Dec 2014, and it's not set up to work with the 5E ruleset. Could someone either change that one to work with 5E, or tell me in really simple language what I need to change? I'd like to get my cartoon-DM portrait working again. I know how to insert the portrait into the extension, but I don't know what to change so it is available for 5E.

    I'm assuming that making an extension to just use a different GM portrait is easy to set up, of course.

    Should be. I'm sure someone in the 5e community can help you. But if no one has the time, I'll dig out the 5e ruleset and whip you something up.
    I never claimed to be sane. Besides, it's more fun this way.

    here ya go... swap out the portrait in the graphics/portrait folder retaining the filename gm-icon.png

    The second one has a fun old school image for you old grognards!

    And the third should be something for those who enjoy a little Lovecraftian flavour...

    I moved this to the 5e forum in case anyone else was interested in this.

    Kudos to damned for sorting it out and here's the link to the original post
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Very nice - I like the icon stating DM instead of GM. Thank you Damned.

    Just making sure I understood this. Did you simply update the portrait graphic itself to say DM or did you change the label as it displays next to your portrait?

    Can the label be customized to say DM? That would be ideal for me while playing any D&D ruleset.

    That is pretty cool. I can hear the voice of the original narrator of that line! (Although grammar Nazi says "you" should be "your" )
