Portraits in saved characters
- It seems that when I add a portrait to a character, PCGen puts the full path
to the portrait. This is awkward when I try to send the character to a
player unless they happen to install PCGen to exactly the same path that I
did. Since I run Linux, and they run Windows, that's extremely unlikely ;-)
Even if we were all running the same OS, some people only install stuff to
their C: drive, others never install to their C: drive, or, on Linux,
everyone's home directory is probably different. The current model thus only
consistantly works if you stay on the same machine.
Even if it were a relative path, there would be some limitations, but not
quite as many - it would actually be reasonably possible to get the portraits
working across machines (e.g., put 'em both in the same directory, or put
your character in the pcgen/characters directory so we can use the CMP
I even have this minor issue when I net use to my linux box from my windows
laptop so I can use my laptop during gameplay.
Not the end of the world, but something that it'd be nice to get working.
