12 different stands to your characters 🙂
The reason because it’s not in the program is simple: they would be too big, and i didn’t want to put them.

Where exactly do we place the stand files for the program to recognise them?

They are not available inside the program, as they are very different in sizes and we didn’t want to make the characters smaller just to be able to put them on stands, so you can just use your favorite image editor and simply put the exported image on a stand.March 9, 2014 at 11:33 am #20372
if you can handle, im gladly put it if you send the character and desired stand in email to me. 🙂 or i will make a little tutor for it 🙂March 9, 2014 at 11:33 am #20373AkiazothParticipant
All clear 🙂 Thanks.March 9, 2014 at 11:37 am #20374

I am a new user for ePic Character and I would like to know how to install the stands (1 & 2) into the programm?
I am using the steam version.

As they come as a PNG addon, they are not integrated into the program. You can use any photo editing software to put your exported characters on the stands of your choice.
I hope this clears things up a bit. 🙂November 9, 2015 at 2:19 am #22154gregParticipant
Because the bottom of the feet of the character are too close to the edge of the picture, the stands wouldn’t fit into the pciture entirely, that’s why they are outside of the program. 🙂
Please choose the None background (first choice with the crossed circle) for a transparent PNG export, and add the stand and a new background of your choice in a photo editing software of your choice. 😀
You can see some of the results from last years competition here.November 9, 2015 at 10:31 pm #22163
Just a minor issue I ran into when installing the stands packs. When I extract the files to the installation folder, since some of the files are named the same thing, installing the second stand pack overwrites some of the first stand content. I was able to work around this by renaming the files in the Stands #2 pack to ‘001, 002, and so on’, and then move them from my desktop back to the epic character generator folder. Again, just a minor thing, but it may help to give the files different names so nothing gets overwritten with new add-ons?November 9, 2015 at 10:40 pm #22165
Unless something changed and I may be wrong, those stands are just normal png files, they don’t need installation.
You can copy them anywhere you like and use them to edit your picture in any picture editing software of your choice. Like any other pic.
No need to unzip them in the installation directory, hence the issue you’re facing. 🙂November 9, 2015 at 10:47 pm #22166
I decided to put them there just so I know where they are. Trying to keep everything together and all. But thanks. 🙂November 9, 2015 at 10:49 pm #22167
iirc, I did something like that, and I ended up with two subdirectrories called something like “stand 1” and “stand 2” 😉November 9, 2015 at 10:55 pm #22169
I think I will make a couple folders now that you mention it and put the associated files in each one just because I am being a neat freak and want to have it organized and such. It didn’t do the folders automatically though.November 9, 2015 at 11:02 pm #22171
tbh, as much as possible, I like the do-it yourself way, so I’m not complaining. 🙂
