How help to make the Integration multisystem for my system ?

Since version 0.7.0, the module has been rewritten to allow for each system to have a css file to define the style and a description file of the mapping for the "ImageReplacer" feature.

Now the community can "come" to me a little, testing the css on their browser and help me understand which combination is the best, i file css si trovano nella directory degli styles, here a example for the dnd5e system

So the steps to follow to create or update a system are:

  1. Creation or update of the style file in the styles directory the file must respect the chat-portrait-style-XXX.css nomenclature where XXX is the system id e.g. "dnd5e".
  2. Creation or update of the typescript file for the mapping of the "ImageReplacer" feature if you do not want to use this feature create the file as empty and I'll take care of integrating the version with the empty arrays. In the minimal case you just need to copy the contents of the file generic.ts and insert the id of your system in the property "SYSTEM_ID" remember that you have to rename the file with the system id.
  3. Insert the system if absent in the configuration file systems.ts
  4. Open a pr on contact me in some way, by open a issue ecc.

NOTE: You can use other modules like Custom CSS for manage the css classes, the module help you by defining two css classes you can customize for the purpose of this module chat-portrait-text-size-name for the text chat message (the 'Setup additional custom styling on the text chat message' setting) and chat-portrait-image-size-name for the image prepend the text chat message (the 'Setup additional custom styling on the image prepend the text chat message' setting)

The module will continue to allow the use of custom CSS if desired.

Known Issue\Limitation

  • Integration multisystem it's very hard to find the time for this, for now i'm supporting only the system i use or ask by issue request, but anyone can point out what system has problem. i have prepared a base code for support multysistem, i will not actively developing on the short term.

  • Better integration with midi-qol and CUB for their mechanism of Unknown creature, but there is no conflict because it's just css and html modification on the chat message so you can use without any issue beyween this modules

Hooks

ChatPortraitEnabled is called before the interaction with the chat is executed. When any of executed hooks return false the interaction is aborted with the default one of foundry.

ChatPortraitReplaceData is called like a replacement to the standard chat portrait recovery image, so any system or GM can use a customized version for a specific module.

Chat Portrait Custom Data

const chatPortraitCustomData = {
    // url or file string reference to the image portrait path
    customIconPortraitImage,
    // [DEPRECATED use instead the 'customImageReplacerData'] Customize your own imageReplacer (Record<string,string>)
    customImageReplacer,
    // Customize your own imageReplacer ( array of {  name: string; icon: string;})
    customImageReplacerData: imageReplacerData, 
}

/// WARNING: internal data - do not use if possible
// data schema is defined in: src/module/ChatPortraitModels.ts (or module/ChatPortraitModels.js)

Example

Use your own code to enable/disable the module chat-portrait...

Hooks.call('ChatPortraitEnabled');
// DO SOME CHECK 'BEFORE' APPLY THE CHAT PORTRAIT STYLING

How you can use this on your code....

Hooks.on('ChatPortraitEnabled', () => {

    // DO SOMETHING AND RETURN OR TRUE OR FALSE FOR ENABLE THE MODULE CHAT PORTRAIT
})

Use your own code for give me a customized image reference to put on the portrait , if you want you can give me a specific image reference for the 'Image Replacer" feature.

const chatPortraitCustomData = { 
  customIconPortraitImage: "http://myimageurl/test.png", // url or file string reference to the image portrait path
  customImageReplacer: imageReplacer, // [DEPRECATED use instead the 'customImageReplacerData'] Customize your own imageReplacer (Record<string,string>)
  customImageReplacerData: imageReplacerData, // Customize your own imageReplacer ( array of {  name: string; icon: string;})
}; 

Hooks.call('ChatPortraitReplaceData', chatPortraitCustomData, chatMessage);

// and then i'll do something with `chatPortraitCustomData`

const blabla = chatPortraitCustomData;

How you can use this on your code....

Hooks.on('ChatPortraitReplaceData', (chatPortraitCustomData, chatMessage) => {
   
    // Set your own image

    chatPortraitCustomData.customIconPortraitImage = ......

    // DO SOMETHING AND RETURN A NEW chatPortraitCustomData
    
    return chatPortraitCustomData; // this is blabla
})

Full Example

Hooks.on('ChatPortraitReplaceData', (chatPortraitCustomData, chatMessage) => {
	const speaker = ChatMessage.getSpeakerActor(chatMessage.data.speaker);
	if('KW_WarfareUnitSheet' === speaker?.sheet?.constructor.name) {
		chatPortraitCustomData.iconMainCustomReplacer = {
			"KW_WARFARE.Power": "systems/dnd5e/icons/skills/yellow_08.jpg",
			"KW_WARFARE.Attack": "systems/dnd5e/icons/skills/red_31.jpg",
			"KW_WARFARE.Morale": "systems/dnd5e/icons/skills/yellow_17.jpg",
			"KW_WARFARE.Command": "systems/dnd5e/icons/skills/ice_16.jpg"
		};
	}
	return chatPortraitCustomData;
});

Systems

For now the following system are the only one i tested

  • Dnd5e system
  • PF2

any other system need some fed back from the community

Features/Settings

  • Use Token Image: Use the actor's Token image instead of the actor's standard image. Note: In the event the token associated with a chat message no longer exists, it will use the actor's prototype token's name. In the event the actor no longer exists, it will try to get the avatar image of the player/GM, and the original chat message's alias (usually the actor's name) to the GM.

  • Do not use Token Image with the following type of actors : (e.g. character, npc, ecc. separate by character ','). Remember the actor type is case sensitive. Make sense only with the setting 'Use Token Image' set to true",

  • Use Token Name: Use the actor's Token name instead of the actor's standard name.

  • Use Avatar Player Image: Use the player's Avatar image instead of the token/actor standard image. if true ignore the first option if a avatar image is not found is going back to the standard actor/token image of the 'mistery man', this option is ignored if you are the GM or else because everything you click will have the avatar image of the GM expect for the OOC chat message. NOTE: Every OOC message by default activate this mode because make sense no token must be associated with a OOC message even for player.

avatar

  • Apply chat portrait on combat tracker: Apply the recovery of the image on the combat tracker.

    • If you are a GM and the combatant is not owned from any player the 'Use token image' feature is enabled anyway.

    • If you are NOT a GM and is enable the 'Use avatar image' feature and the player owned more than a token in combat the image is the same (the avatar image of the player)

chat_portrait_feature

  • Image Replacer: This feature for avoid the double portrait when you roll Ability / Skills / Saving Throw / Tools, for now the support is limited to the following systems :

    • Dnd5e system
    • PF2

If you want to add your own system it's very simple!!! you can just give to me a map of strings key=value of label and image, for a live example check out what i have done for d&d5e with the english language here ImageReplacer. It's ugly but it's simple to integrated.

replacer

  • Disable the chat portrait if the alias of the chat message is from a GM: If enable every chat message done with a alias referenced to a GM will ot apply the chat portrait mechanism

  • Set up a specific image if the alias of the chat message is from a GM: If enable will use the image selected here for every chat message done with a alias referenced to a GM. If 'Disable the chat portrait if the alias of the chat message is from a GM' is enable this setting will be ignored

[ON DEVELOPING SO ANY SUGGESTION IS WELCOME]

  • Image Replacer Damage Types: Add some image for better identify the type of damage of the weapon, for now the support is limited to the following systems :

    • Dnd5e system
    • PF2
