Thread: Data subfolder

  1. #1

    Data subfolder

    Ahoi.

    What is the use of the Data subfolder and why are all portraits inside that folder, even the ones coming with FG?

    Edit: corrected tokens to portraits.

    The data bag is the folder which points to the tokens that you have put in the tokens folder in the top level of the FG Data folder. As opposed to the campaign bag which contains tokens in the tokens folder inside the campaign folder. All other tokens will be in their own bag under the name of the module that contains them. But I may be misunderstanding the question.

    Sorry, I meant the "Portraits", not tokens.

    Everything is "Data" in there:

    It also seems that campaign portraits don't work?

    I don't think you can add portraits to a campaign and never could. Portraits have always been top level. Portraits have always been treated a bit differently from images and tokens (very early design decision by the original developers) and so have always been global rather than campaign specific.

    Which is inconsistent with how the other image categories are handled. Having all the built-in portraits inside the Data folder is strange, too.

    I did say portraits were treated differently. So it’s consistently inconsistent

    So I have to copy my campaign portraits to the root portrait folder, assign them to chars (which also saves them in the campaign folder) and then delete them from root portraits again. I should have known...

    Just put all portraits at root. There are no campaign portraits.
