Custom slipmat designs can be created using any image editing software that can export images to PNG. A template file is provided as a PSD (Photoshop) file and can be downloaded here:
The template file includes a layer with shows the UV layout of the slipmat model, so images can be designed to fit the mesh perfectly.
To create a custom slipmat design, follow these steps:
You can also use two different slipmat designs for the left and right turntable, by saving the designs as two separate files:
Because the dimensions of the saved image file need to be a power of two (ex: 2048 x 2048), it is not recommended to resize the template file.
To import the slipmat design created in the previous step into Vinyl Reality, simply copy the saved PNG file(s) into the following directory:
C:/Users/username/AppData/LocalLow/EntroPi Games/Vinyl Reality
The directory might be hidden, so make sure the show hidden files option in Windows is enabled.
After the file has been copied, Vinyl Reality will detect the image file and display it on the turntables automatically each time a new environment is loaded.
To revert to the original built-in slipmat design, simply remove the PNG file(s) from the folder.
