Setting for color of pips of my dice
« on: June 03, 2014, 10:41:37 PM »
Where is the setting for the color of the pips -- the dots, for those of you who don't know that term -- on my dice?

In trying to create colors I could see, I changed my opponents checkers to red. But now, the pips on the right side dice are red (I think they were white, or black). But I can't find the setting to set them back. How do I set the color of my dice's pip?

In javafibs, I altered almost everything.  I ended up with my moving pieces being yellow hearts thanks to my daughter, and the opponent pieces being red and white targets.   

How I did it, was by going into the javafibs folder on my desktop.  Going into my boards folder, my player name, selecting the board I wanted to change (i altered Casino), and then you get a lot of files.  If you want to change the opponent dice colour, hover your mouse over "opponentdie6", right mouse button click it to bring up the menu.  Select "open with paint".    Then increase the magnification of the paint page, use the available tools to fill the image with your selected colour and click save.  Lastly, you need to log in to fibs, go to preferences, boards, and reselect your board.  "Casino" if you originally chose that one like i did.  Click okay, and look at your playing board.  You will notice the change in colour to your opponents dice when they roll a 6.   Alter them all the same way in the folder... open with paint etc.     Remember to refresh your board selection in fibs or you wont see the changes.   

If you open "opponentpiece" with paint, increase magnification, paint over the whole thing black.   Now, whatever shape you create in the space, will become the shape of your opponents movable pieces once you have saved your paint file and refreshed your fibs board.   

You will find out through experimenting what shapes look good and which don't work.     Have fun with it!  :)

Thanks, that investigation sounds like something I would do on software I'm more familiar with. But in this case I'm just a user and looking for the one setting in the interface. The setting must be out there, because the colors changed on my interface.
