Topic: Board Games V1.7.0 now online
The client updater is used to check for a newer version of the client software. When clicking the multiplayer button from within the client, prior to this release, the client updater will not search for a newer client version and the online play will be cancelled. Instead, you will need to download the newest version of the client software from the downloads page.
You now have the option, at the configuration section of the client, to select a username and avatar that you would like to use while playing games in offline mode.
300 avatars are now at this website and also at the client. Avatars can no longer be uploaded to this website. Instead, K Board Games gets all avatars from multiavatar. That website has over 12 billion unique avatars that can be generated.
At the title scene of the client, click the gear icon then select an avatar that you would like to use for your offline profile. Selecting the first avatar will not hide that avatar when playing a game. When playing a game online, your membership profile avatar from K Board Games website will be used.
You can select an avatar to use when posting a message at the forum. Access the avatars by logging in to this website; Go to the hamburger menu (top left corner of scene) then go to the profile link. Here are a sample of the avatars now available.
