Choose avatar

To choose a avatar on registration you have to make some avatar archives

NOTE: I have only tested this with database archives and not file archives. To save a archive in the database you must give it a name ending with ".database"

Note: When displaying textures from the texture server they will be resized to 128x128 and at the bottom will be writen the grid nickname

  1. Dress a avatar up like you want it to look
  2. Take a picture of it and upload this to the grid
  3. in the console of the grid server issue this command
save avatar archive <First> <Last> <Filename> <FolderNameToSaveInto> [<SnapshotUUID>] [<Public>]


save avatar archive Skidz Tweak EvilOverlord.database / 00000-0000-0000-0000-00000 1

NOTE: Only pulic ones will be listed on the website

Trouble Shooting

Errors with viewing or logging users into WebUI (not admin users)

  • Make sure that an Aurora.Addon.WebAPI.dll is in the bin/ folder of the place that are you running Aurora (or Aurora.Server) from.

Page editor will not load in Administrator Section.

  • While testing on osgrid.org we resolved this issue by creating a .htaccess file in the root of your website with the following code
        RewriteEngine On  
        RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.yourdomain.com$  
        RewriteRule (.*)$ http://yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
