The Broken Hourglass: Creating Custom Portraits & Soundsets
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Planewalker Games has released another informational update promoting its upcoming RPG, The Broken Hourglass. This time Planewalker gives readers a tour of the ways even casual players can customize their game experience by adding new portraits or creating custom soundsets for their characters.

If you are a player who enjoys an easy way to tailor your gameplay experience, The Broken Hourglass offers easy options to add custom character portraits and homemade character soundsets. Although TBH will ship with an ample selection of both, tastes vary widely--and of course, for copyright reasons we are not allowed to include your favorite vampire slayers or starship captains. The privacy of your own home, however, is a different matter...

Introducing new portraits could hardly be easier. Images in PNG or JPG format can be placed in a special "portraits" directory, and are automatically catalogued by the game. No special resizing is necessary-the game will automatically scale images to suit the different sizes used by the game. In theory any image can be used, but those cropped to a standard portrait ratio of 11 x 17 will look best.

Custom soundset creation is a little more intricate, but well worth the effort, be you an aspiring actor or simply somebody who can't get enough Bruce Campbell quotes in their games.
