My roll20 Idea
« on: October 24, 2019, 08:09:36 PM »
good or bad?

So, what if someone used the prtscrn method to take top down snaps and turn them into .png image files with no background, and use those pictures as custom imported tokens for a roll20 champions or improvised heroclix game, are there any taboos around doing something like that?

Take snapshots of characters ingame? I don't see anybody stopping you from doing that or why that would be bad.

maybe the tokens don't have the right accreditation or something,

You can do this easily. It would look great!
I was using roll20 back in the summer, but then I switched to Foundry. You need to find a host (or self host) but I like it a bit better.

Just pick a standard size you want your icons to be, and use that as a template. First place a regular sized person in there. Go from that.
Foundry allows for rectangular tokens, but I haven't found a way to get those to change direction properly, so I just go with square with blank spaces on the side.

Sorry, I know this is... oh 2019? Even older than I thought!!! But it's still a good idea, and I hope you have it working!

On the other hand... hey are people playing Heroclix on roll20?
I've actually never played this game. Is it? Is it cool? Is it something people would want to get into?
