    Default New "Image Gallery" button on the menu

    Hi,

    I noticed today this button now on the & menu and wondered what exactly this one is supposed to be for. My first thought was for screenshots so I went and took a few and nothing appears. So was this unintentionally turned on with the last hotfix or something else entirely?

    Just curious...

    A couple of silly issues with said Image Gallery:

    1) Strong possibility that Images vanish upon TR.

    2) Gallery is for some unknown reason Character rather than Account Based.

    Default Cards and hopefully MM entries later.

    If you haven't already, you can double-click on your anniversary event cards to add them to you gallery. It might take a re-log to make all of them appear but past that they will appear for all your toons on that server.

    I hope they add more possibilities and art to this section. One quick thing that comes to mind is adding the unlock-able art from the Monster Manuals to this section.

    Edit: I see above I may be wrong about it being server/account based. Can someone confirm one or the other?
    Because DDO content is created by hand, some issues cannot be fixed with a global change. We must fix these issues one-by-one by hand with the help of bug reports. This includes:

    On the first day after the Update and before the first patch I recall it possibly being on multiple characters.

    However ever since said first patch I've had to log on to EVERY SINGLE character {28 on Cannith alone!} and get the cards out of the Shared Bank and double click each and every one.
    THEN relog each character to make sure it took though this could just be me being Paranoid.

    Finding out that the Image Gallery resets on TR makes this the biggest waste of time ever!!!

    Still not 100% sure that it does reset on TR though I'm pretty certain I had cards in my Image Gallery before TRing Franq yesterday and Know that I didn't afterwards!
    There is a forum thread up though by someone else stating that this happened!

    What I don't get is why on earth did they waste a button in the start menu on "image gallery". I typically have it open all the time on my screen because it's easier to check LFM and what not but this (like the sorely forgotten monster manual) is just a waste of a spot now.

    Someone else posted about this a few weeks ago, but I can now confirm from personal experience: before my ETR I had a full gallery of cards 1-11, after the ETR they were all gone.
    The gallery feature is pretty cool, but currently it's bugged (and yea, it really should be server-wide, not per toon!)

    I just press "O" to get the social panel.

    I also don't understand why the image gallery isn't account-based and why it resets on TR.

    Is it just to look at or do they actually serve some in-game function?

    They are just pretty retro - d&d images for your viewing pleasure.
    They serve no actual purpose whatsoever, other than perhaps nostalgia.

    Though so, but was wondering with the way some seemed to consider having to have them on every character was so necessary or losing them on TR so onerous.
