Where do Stream Deck gauge images live?

Recommended Posts

When I add a png or jpg images to a MultiGuage, SliderGuage, etc. where do they get stored and are those retrievable? I know for regular icons in a downloaded Stream Deck profile, I can unzip the profile and it will show me all the icons. It doesn't seem to be revealing the other images in the profile used in your gauges. I would find it useful to be able to access those images as many of the pre-built profiles using your scripts on various sites utilize those kinds of gauges. I'd like to be able to troubleshoot certain ones that aren't working right and maybe re-do the layers or making edits to the icons for my use but I'd need all the images they setup for the gauge via the image definitions. 

Any ideas on if I can pull these out of the profile?

I made some progress on this but I'm still stuck. I downloaded your Stream Deck profile editor thinking maybe I could get to them that way. When I click on a Gauge icon (in this case, a SliderGuage) I can see under the section "Action settings" a field named slideimg. When I hover my mouse over the giant data:image/png text entry, I see a very tiny popup of the images used on this slider, in this case it appears to be three toggle switches in different states next to each other to make a 1x3 image. I want to change this to a multigauge for toggle states as that makes more sense for me, not sure why it was done as a slider.

In the meantime, I'll poke at this more tomorrow to see if this tool can do what I want.

EDIT: Maybe multiguage images do save but slidergauge images don't because the web server doesn't support that kind of gauge? An easy solution for me (says the guy that didn't code the tool) would be to see the image at 100% size instead of the small version I see now. I'd be ok with using the snip tool.

That depends on the StreamDeck Action.

  • For normal actions, the images are saved as files somewhere in "\AppData\Roaming\Elgato\StreamDeck\ProfilesV2"
  • With the programmatic AAO actions, the images are not saved as files anywhere. They are stored as pure data in the actions settings. You cannot copy, move or download them.

Technically it would be possible to re-transfer any image back to a file with the StreamDeck Editor, but for copyright reasons I decided not to implement that. The way that it is now, it is the author's choice if he wants you to have the images - or not. And I know that at least one (guenseli) has published a large collection of the images that he made on flightsim.to (please make sure to buy him a coffee - painting all those icons, researching the aircraft mechanics and writing the scripts is A LOT of work)

Probably because MultiGauges are very performance intensive. But you would have to ask the author for the actual reason.

Ask the author of that profile nicely if he will send you the images that he made.
