Once your custom costumes are complete, export the animations as swfs. Now you need
to import your swf into the game. Open DBSwfImport.exe in the ‘CustomSkins’ folder, go to
File>New Skin, which will open a new dialog. Here you can designate your new skin name,
upload your new custom skin swf files, upload a preview image (376 by 452 pixels), and
The tool will convert your swfs, and create a .dat file in a ‘CustomSkins’ subdirectory
of DBImport.exe . Guacamelee! Gold will search for any user generated costumes in this
directory. Your costume will now be available in the game’s Costume Shop!
Additionally, you can publish your custom costume to Steamworks. First, make sure Steam
is open and you are logged into your account. Open DBImport.exe, and go to
File>Publish to Steamworks. Select your new costume .dat file, enter it’s name, preview image,
description, and click Publish. The tool should automatically bring you to the item in the
Steam Community Workshop for Guacamelee! Gold. However, the item will by default set to
“Hidden”. To share it with the community, select the “Change Visibility” dropdown menu
and click “Public”.
To download a user’s costume, select the Item, and click the “Subscribe” button. Once
a user’s costume has been subscibed to, open the game, and access the Costume Shop. Select
“Sync Skins”, and the new skin should be available!
In the game Costume Shop, each costume will be designated with an icon in the top right
corner of their preview image. The icon will indicate where the costume came from: Base
Game, Custom Skin on Local Hard Drive, or Steam Workshop.
That’s it! We’re excited to see the awesome costumes you will be sharing with us. Thanks for reading!
