Customizing Your VDR Profile Picture

How it Works
You can use your own custom profile picture in Vampires Dark Rising, by signing up for a free account at Gravatar. However there is one very important action to complete to ensure that your image appears in the Rising.

When signing up for your free Gravatar account, your Gravatar email address must exactly match your VDR login email address.

If your email addresses on Gravatar and VDR do not match, your Gravatar image will not appear in game.

 

How to Change Your Avatar
After you've completed your Gravatar signup, open Vampires Dark Rising then click on Profile.

On the profile screen, simply tap your default picture and we'll use your VDR login email address to find your Gravatar and instantly make it appear on your profile.

If you tap your picture a second time, it will change back to the default picture.

 

How to Switch Out Your Gravatar Picture
A) If you already have several pictures uploaded: To change your Gravatar picture, you must return to Gravatar and sign in with the correct email address. Once there, if you already have a new picture uploaded to your Gravatar account, simply click on the picture you want.

Even though you will see your new picture instantly on Gravatar, it will take 5-10 minutes for the picture change to take effect on Gravatar's servers. Once the change is in effect it should change in VDR.

B) If you only have one picture uploaded: To change your Gravatar picture, you must return to Gravatar and sign in with the correct email address. Once there, click the "add a new image" link and choose the picture you wish to upload.

The picture you've chosen will automatically become your default Gravatar picture. Even though you will see your new picture instantly on Gravatar, it will take 5-10 minutes for the picture change to take effect on Gravatar's servers. Once the change is in effect it should change in VDR.

 

What to Do If Your Gravatar Image Isn't Working

  • Verify that your Gravatar account email address is exactly the same as your VDR login email address.

    If the addresses do not match, you will see our default "Use Gravatar" image. To fix the issue, simply create a new Gravatar account with the correct email address and re-upload your pictures.

  • Verify that you have a picture uploaded to Gravatar.

    If you don't have a picture uploaded to Gravatar, you will see our default "Use Gravatar" image. To fix the issue, simply upload a picture to Gravatar.

 

 

What to Do If You're Not Using Gravatar
If you're not interested in using a custom profile picture, that's okay! Just use your default profile picture.

If you're not using Gravatar and are seeing the "use Gravatar" picture, go to your Profile screen and tap the picture. It should revert back to the default picture.
