Hi!

If you open the MAKE VTOUR (NORMAL) droplet in Notepad++, you'll see this line:

Source code

1
"%~dp0\kmakemultires" "%~dp0\templates\vtour-normal.config" %*


That means that Make Vtour uses vtour-normal.config. It is located in 1.16.7\krpanotools-1.16.7-win32\templates

Open it with Notepad++ and among all code lines you'll see this one:

Source code

1
2
# skin / xml template
include vtourskin-scrolling-thumbnails-bingmaps-gyro.skin


Tha means that this config uses vtourskin-scrolling-thumbnails-bingmaps-gyro.skin

Again, open it up in Notepad and see this structure:

Source code

xmltemplate=xml/vtour.xml
xmltemplate_scene=xml/vtour_scenetemplate.xml
xmltemplate_view=xml/vtour_viewtemplate.xml
xmltemplate_hotspot=xml/vtour_hotspottemplate.xml
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/skin/vtourskin.xml
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/skin/vtourskin.png
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/skin/vtourskin_thumbborder.png
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/skin/vtourskin_hotspot.png
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/skin/vtourskin_mapspot.png
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/skin/vtourskin_mapspotactive.png
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/plugins/scrollarea.swf
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/plugins/scrollarea.js
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/plugins/bingmaps.swf
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/plugins/bingmaps.js
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/plugins/bingmaps.license.xml
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/plugins/textfield.swf
xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/plugins/gyro.js


The last lines in this code indicate what files should be included in the skin automatically

To add your file automatically every time, add this line to the code above:

Source code

1
 xmltemplate_additional_file=xml/skin/YOUR_FILE.png 


Then take this YOUR_FILE.png and paste it into the folder which is specified in the code line above (in our case it is

1.16.7\krpanotools-1.16.7-win32\templates\xml\skin).

Try making a test tour and see that the file is added *tongue*
Regards,

Alexey

What Alexey says is the correct way, but can be difficult...

easy way:

look into the "krpanotools" folder.
Then open "templates" folder. Then "xml" and last "skin"

Here you find all the graphics, (and xml files) that are used to make the virtual tour.

Replace vtourskin.png and vtourskin-hotspot.png with your custom made, BUT do NOT change the name.
