Thread: Dice Color

  1. #1

    Dice Color

    What file contains the dice color for the characters, when we "nuke the cache" we look the dice color, I would like to make a backup the information so I can restore it for the next time.

    Value is writen in your PC registry. Wait must see for correct place...

    EDIT:
    If you want backup your Dice colour for future, then you need write somewhere in your marks value of "DiceColor"
    key from Registry. How to do it?

    Step 1: Close FG software (if running)
    Step 2: Hold Windows Key (flag key) + R
    Step 3: In opened window in row write "regedit" (without quotes of course)
    Step 4: In registry database go in:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Fantasy Grounds\2.0\DiceColor

    here you will have cca 15 values as: DataDir, InstallDir, LastUsername, LicenseKey, DiceColor, Password, etc... (see my picture bottom)

    and value in row "DiceColor" is for your actual dices color. This value sets color of your dices.
    Simply mark this value for future needs and you have your color scheme backup.

    WARNING!!! Be carefull and don't change another values in REGISTRY!! Otherwise you risk malfunctions on your installed software!

    Step 5: Through double click on "DiceColor" is possible change value. After changing value hit F5 key on your keyboard and close regedit window (only if you changed value, if you only make marks dont need do this step).
    Step 6: Run FG.

    Simple? ;oD

    The most important rules of FG - 1.) drag player portraits onto the Combat tracker!
    2.) Drag NPCs onto the Combat Tracker! 3.) Drag icons from the Combat Tracker onto the Map!

    I don't think you can back just the player dice (and indicator) colours up. It's stored within the local (encrypted) campaign cache information as it is connected to a specific PC in the campaign.

    Hi MarianDz this records your GM dice colour but no your Player dice colour - that is within the cache file as Trenloe points out.

    ORRRRR... you could load up the DOE: Base Extension, open the Colour Gizmo (sometimes called the Colour-Picker) and read off the Die colour from the Entry Box provided.

    You can also enter in the Die colour to the same entry box to change it.

    Of course, this only works for the CoreRPG and the Child-Rulesets of the CoreRPG, but even if you've set your Die Colour (as the GM) in another Ruleset you should still be able to see it when you load the CoreRPG and the DOE: Base.
