    Hello all,

    I recently picked up TOEE (again :p), and after installing and getting everything up and running I went looking for the IWD portrait pack, but apparently the current available doesn't work.

    Is there a more recent version? If so where can I get it? If not, is there anything I should know about attempting to modify the added pack?

    I hadn't seen that

    However, when I install said pack and get to the 'portrait' section of the character creation screen my game freezes :\

    I've got 7.8 and my IWD portrait pack works fine. It IS an old download, though.

    Odd, I wonder if I'm missing something...

    The game runs fine without the portraits, but when I copy them over and overwrite the .mes it freezes at the portrait tab of the char creation screen.

    Ugh..

    Are you running Windows 7 with ToEE installed somewhere in the Program Files directory?

    Newp, I have it in a custom location, which is also on a different partition.

    I went ahead and ham-fisted it :p (renamed and overwrote with the IWD portraits), still curious about why it wasn't working, but I can use the portraits I want now so I'm ok lol

    Hm, very strange ... I see the only one that doesn't do that right now is Baldur's Gate. :blegh:

    @GA82, can you please upload your old working portrait pack here so I can compare it to the new one? We don't keep old versions of those.

    This is off topic, but..

    You guys (the Co8 crew) are awesome for putting so much effort into making this awesome game even better. Thanks for the hard work!

    On it.

    It's a RAR file from 10/17/2010. It tells me upload failed after 10 or so seconds. Any suggestions?

    Looks like it was an upload size limit issue. I upped the max for .rar archives, so please try again. Thanks. :)

    Trying again...

    Upload failed.

    It's 4.25 MB, if that helps.

    It failed in 40-50 seconds, it seems.

    Is there another way to do this?

    That's really weird, I upped the size to 5 MB.

    Well anyway you could upload it to a filesharing service and link it here. Or, are you on the cloud?

    [ed]

    Heh, actually as I think of it, all I really need is portraits.mes from the archive. If you could extract that (it's in data/art/interface/portraits), you can just upload that very file itself here as an attachment without putting it in a zip or anything.

    Sorry about all the maneuvering.
