.bik animated avatar

Post by flapjackman176 » 26 Mar 2006 07:24

I've authenticated and converted a custom .gif to a .bik file put in into the gamedata\skins\avatars\flags dir.

Now i start up TMN and try to change my avatar to my .bik file and its not showing up.

Is there a different way to change it to a .bik file?

Thanks in advance!

When you click to get to your avatar in your profile are you clicking the pic of the flag avatar or where it says Nation? I was confused about this as I was clicking where it says nation and my custom avatar wasnt showing up. it wasnt until I realised i needed to click the actual picture of the flag avatar to get the custom ones to show up! lol

Avatars are a .dds plugin.
The signs in the game for going left, right, up,... are .bik
With what plugin can I make or edit a .bik file?

important as well:

> more frames / more colors in your animation = by 15 kb lower quality

> less frames / less colors = by 15 kb better qouality

Did you authenticate your TMN account with a key from Sunrise? You have to do that before other people can see your av/skin.
