Your App and B4B Icon Overlay How?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I had one of my apps approved for B4B.  I received a welcome email and a download location for the assets.zip file which contained both a pdf with instructions and two B4B logos, both for white and black backgrounds.. within the instructions it talks about being able to overlay your app logo ontop of the B4B icon.,  it gives you instructions which now throughly confuse me..  I can't seem to find a BB Icon file anywhere,  I have gone to appworld and done a search for Built for Blackberry and see that some icons have this little B4B displayed within the lower right hand corner of their app icon, however mine doesn't.  Can someone please explain to me how I get the B4B logo to display within my Apps logo.  ?

 

Is this supposed to be automatic or something I need to create on my side and then upload via my BlackberryWorld Vendor Portal?

 

Thanks, in Advance,

It's not (currently) automatic, so you need to manually apply the overlay image to your own icon and featured image and upload them to the vendor portal the usual way.

I use Inkscape to build most of my assets, and applying the overlay was pretty simple to do in that program, though many others would work as well or even better.

Hi,

 

thanks, but I only received two different logo files in different formats ( One on Black and One on White )within ( ...Built_for_BlackBerry_Assetts.zip ),  not an overlay image file with the curl in the lower right hand corner to overlay as described within the pdf.

 

Is there another file I'm supposed to download from somewhere?

 

Thanks,

Interesting... maybe they are moving to an automated process for applying this. I see only the same two files there that you do, and none of the two other overlay images that used to be present.

Do you have any suggestions on where I might still find a copy or should I try and touch base with someone at blackberry,

 

thanks,

I've asked offline for some input on this thread to clarify what should be done now.

It seems to be missing as well in the download link in my BFB mail. Where can I find this updated archive?
