Heh. Pretty much what it says in the subject - I've perused the forums and haven't found a specific post for this.

I always use the first male portrait for my IMP (the darker-skinned gentleman), ever since the first time I played the game, but I'd like to put him in something a bit more fashionable than the all-blue ensemble he's got going on right now.

Do I do this in ProEdit, or by editing an XML file?
I'm a bit new at getting my hands dirty with the editing, so you might need to explain it like you would to a kindergardner lol

Thanks!

simply put: you can't, which is a shame.

what you can try is to find the description of the .dat file that governs your IMP. Then, one specific byte will most probably represent the pants color, one the vest color and so on

however, i have no idea which byte it is, but maybe you come across this description of the .dat files somewhere and spot it.

Tank you much for the quick response.

Well, after 9 years (on and off) of playing using the same portrait, perhaps it's time to pick a different one lol

You could use the IMP Editor. With this you could change virtually everything.

Pre 1.13 changes to imp colours in prof.dat via proedit worked fine. Post 1.13 they don't for some reason. An alternative is use the Palette Editor and re-write blue shirt & blue trousers slots; though this will effect every person wearing the same blue.

Why not just use the imp editor?


I use it all the time with the 1.13 and it works fine.

Or change it in a hexeditor but this has to be done every time you start a new game. Does not take too long to do though and since one game in JA2 generally is pretty long it is worth it.

I used to change IMP "colour scheme" with PROEDIT but I'm not sure that this still works?! :confused:

I changed it by changing colours of hair, vest, pants and skin in system information. It was PGmale# according to the voice set used for your character. Voice1 -> PGmale1 Voice2 -> PGmale2 and so on; the same with female imps.

IMP Editor I used was made by John Smith aka Roadkill, I hope

@Will

I could send it to you if you have any trouble finding it but I believe Kermi's site should have it since I sent it to him.

Send me a valid e-mail adress and I'll get it to you.

Again, I know this is an old topic, but at least the version I have, anytime I make an IMP merc, it lets me pick what colour vest/short, and pants to wear.

It was fixed before the 2085 release, which is ancient in terms of JA revisions. AKA, this has been fixed for more than 2 years, and the OP is either already aware of it, or no longer cares. Please refrain from necromancy, not all of us like zombies.

@nighthawk-

Dude... you've made 6 posts and 5 of them were resurrecting obsolete threads. Stop it already.

Don't make me sic the mods on you...

Maybe start reading the forums from newest to oldest instead of vice versa? Wink

Sorry, I just have the post list on it's default setting, and am fairly new at v1.13, having only downloaded it a couple of weeks ago, prior to that, didn't even know it was out there.
