To use your own resources you need to download a corresponding module. Each module also contains a folder for each species (the name of that folder depends on which language you chose for the module) even if there is no content for it (e.g. Birds without sounds in the module still get a folder). The module folders are found in the Ornithopedia base folder. The base folder is '.Ornithopedia' (with a dot at the beginning, so it can be hidden from gallery Apps.). You can check where this folder is located or change the default location in the settings inside Ornithopedia. All data in this folder is lost when you change it. So if you plan to change the base folder download modules after you did so.
To include your own resources just copy them into the corresponding module folder. The structure is pretty self explanatory, images of a Snow Goose belong in the folder '../.Ornithopedia/Images/Snow Goose/..', sounds of the Snow Goose belong in '../.Ornithopedia/Sounds/Snow Goose/..' etc.
Here are a few things to consider:
- Should the base folder not be visible when connected to a PC try the "Folder Visibility" setting inside the App. You also might have to restart your device to make the module files appear on your PC. This applies for all Apps and is due to the horrible, horrible MTP-Protocol Android uses. However copying files from the PC to the device should work instantly. Did I mention how awful MTP is ? Because it is.
- The App only recognizes files that were imported into the given folder structure. File names can be arbitrary chosen.
- If you change the structure (move folders manually or rename them) the resources will no longer be found inside the App.
- Removing (or changing) a module will remove all content of the corresponding folder, except If you change within a language of the module (e.g. Switch from English Basic sounds to English Advanced Sounds).
- Images can be either .jpg, jpeg or .png. And thanks to the Image Full-screen View by David Morrissey you can use images of any size.
