For those who may not know. If you are thinking of adding any custom portrait, in the folder section in the nwn you need to make a folder and name it portraits.
If you're downloading other players character portraits, such as from this thread, it's more useful and polite to install their portraits into your override folder instead. You'll still see their portraits in game, but you won't be able to accidentally use their portrait when creating a new character.
I was reviewing Fenix's thread. I do have the legacy pak. If you have a portrait there let me know and I will add to the one I have.
Why not just use what i already have there which is entirely organized and categorized by pc with individual links? There seems to be literally no point not to otherwise, especially with many pcs returning periodically.
I just passed all of the current archives and strcutre I have, as well as all the information needed to prepare and host the pictures over to Animayhem. She will be taking over the portrait archives from here on, most likely.
When you took over, i archived the whole setup exactly as i had it with individual portraits and a master archive ans gave it to you.l, exactly as it was organized. Its just a matter of linking them. So...i dont quite get why it was started over instead?

A DM is only required to change your portrait if you change the name of said portrait. If the filename remains the same, you can substitute in any image you'd like. This is why most custom portraits should have unique names that are hard to duplicate, or you might end up with a pretty half-elf who has the portrait of the ugliest half-orc to half the people on a given server.
Last Edit: Sept 12, 2017 19:10:12 GMT -5 by Calliope: Wrong files, woops. Should be good now,
Characters: Akaliah Virgo - A failed cleric of Lurue turned wizard. Calliope Ezra Vye'lloea - A shy little divine sorceress. Heather Hearthwood - The ever young "Paladin of Malar". Wahecu Avelent Sende'lin - The sun elf from Anauroch.
Pak is updated. Remember images are optional and a dm will need to change them in game if your character has a different one then when you started. Until the portrait is changed the old one will stay. If you do not download, all you will see are brown hoods.
