Module Cover Art

1668881704
Not sure if this is a bug or intended; When creating a game using a module from the marketplace, sometimes it fills the cover page with art from the module like below And most of the time, not; Does anyone know why some modules conveniently add the art and others don't?

This is often a question of priorities, not necessary proofing. It takes resources to create a proper cover image and some GMs pick their own images for the games anyway. I expect that some publishers do not expect significant return on spending resources on a cover page.

The art is already there. You can see it in the Marketplace. Seems to me it is just a bit of code to copy the art into the game details page image when creating a new game. Some modules do this automatically. It's a long shot, I know, but I was really hoping to hear from a dev or marketplace creator who could actually explain this inconsistency.

I don't know the reason for the inconsistency (I do Conversion Contract work for Roll20, but we don't handle that part). But I do know that the art can't simply be re-used. There are different specs for the Marketplace Image (512 x 512) and Game Details Icon (300 x 512). A new piece would need to be made. Again, don't know why sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't.

Ah, OK. Thanks Keith for that bit of insight.
