Hi, I'm new to the forums. Love 1.13 by the way.

Not sure if this is on topic, but I created a custom face from photos of Kristina Asmus. Not sure if you'd be interested in hosting it somewhere.

I've added an example of the face from a screenshot. I hired Fox and MD to give some comparison how it looks next to an original JA2 face.

http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/FrozenFlunky/KristinaAsmusInGame_Small.jpg

She's using IMP4 voice (taken from the AlterEgo OtherGirl by Cobra - I had to rebuild the MercEDT file in order for the Russian subtitles to work properly under an English version of JA2.)

The 100% STI image looks like this:
http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/FrozenFlunky/KristinaAsmusSRC_100_0.jpg

And her BIGFace image looks like this:
http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/FrozenFlunky/KristinaAsmusSRC_BIGFACE_0.jpg

To be honest, I don't know if taking someone's photo from the Internet and turning it into a game resource is considered legal, so I'll pose the question here as well.

I've always thought that Amy Acker was fantastic as Kelly Peyton in season 5 of Alias.
So much so that I thought it'd be nice to see how she'd fit in with the crowd in Arulco.

Here is an in-game screenshot with her as an IMP mercenary.

http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/FrozenFlunky/AmyAckerInGame_Small-1.jpg

Here she is in her 100 size face file:
http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/FrozenFlunky/AmyAckerSRC_100_0_Updated.jpg

Here is a close-up of the BigFace file.
http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/FrozenFlunky/AmyAckerSRC_BIGFACE_0.jpg

(Edit: I had to re-do the 100 size file slightly. Changed the angle of her face so that it aligned horizontally. The reason for this was after playtesting, it was clear that her former face angle was causing too many problems. That was a crap-ton of work; basically had to rebuild everything from ground up. Let that be a lesson to me to be very specific about what angles are allowed on the faces.)

Another comment: There's something weird about JA2's display of the portrait in-game. You can see from the screenshots that her face seems much brighter in-game, while the actual brightness of her face is lower outside of the game.

Hello KindlyOne and welcome to the forum,

Compliment, the faces you created for Kristina and Amy are looking really promising!

KindlyOne
Not sure if you'd be interested in hosting it somewhere.


I would like to host them in Kermi's JA2 archive more precisely in the following link among the work of many other JA2 artists:

http://kermi.pp.fi/JA_2/Faces/

So if you are interested in this suggestion just upload the files you want to share with the community to a temporary free hosting service like megaupload or mediafire or send me your files via email (scheinworld@web.de) and I will upload them into a new "KindlyOne" folder. Smile


KindlyOne
To be honest, I don't know if taking someone's photo from the Internet and turning it into a game resource is considered legal, so I'll pose the question here as well.


As long as you don't use them for any commercial purposes that shouldn't be a problem. Take a look at the faces the famous JA2 artist Ron created for example:

http://kermi.pp.fi/JA_2/Faces/Ron/


A question/request regarding myself and other modding interested people maybe:

Could you create a 90x100 face for your faces as well? The reason why I ask you that is that so they would be also suitable for new created RPCs or NPCs in any JA2/UB mods.

It would be nice to hear from you and regarding your work: "Keep it up!" :ok:


Best regards; Schein

Thanks, Scheinworld.

I've sent the files to you via e-mail. The package contains the STIs for the following sizes: (BigFace) 106x122, (Face) 48x43, (65Face) 31x27, and (33Face) 15x14; the coordinates for the eyes and mouths are included in a text file. I've also included non-STI bitmaps (BMP and JPG) showing the faces so people browsing the site can see what the faces look like without needing to download it and view it using an STI viewer.

I don't have the 90x100 animated sizes because I didn't intend for them to be used as RPC or in-game NPCs that you can meet. I'll see what I can about making a 90x100 version. I'm not much of an artist (being colorblind and working with just a plain old mouse,) so I can't make any promises.

Actually, I do have a question about the eye-mouth coordinates for 90x100 portrait. Where is that set? I know the coordinates for 48x33 portrait is stored in the profile or IMP portraits XML file, but I don't think those coordinates would necessarily match that used by the 90x100 portrait. Or do they?

Edit: Never mind. I've figured it out. For all RPCs and in-game NPCs, the merc profile covers the coordinates for the 90x100 portrait. The game requires an additional file for the small face, RPCFacesSmall.xml which gets used when the NPC is recruited - this covers the coordinates for the 48x43 portrait.

I've just done the 90x100 file for Kristina Asmus. I tested it out on Fatima (for obvious reasons,) and it works pretty well. Here's a screenshot cropped to just the conversation dialogue box with Kristina so you can have a look-see.

http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/FrozenFlunky/KristinaAsmusAsFatima.jpg

Man, it's creepy seeing Kristina's face and hearing Fatima's voice come out of it.

And Amy Acker's 90x100 image has been done as well. I had to use a modification of the BIGFACE because the photo I had for the 48x43 image came cropped up the wazoo (hence it was used for the 48x43 image.)

http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa398/FrozenFlunky/AmyAckerAsFatima.jpg

By the way, Amy Acker's a tough one because she smiles in almost every photo PLUS she usually inclines her head in some way. This makes for tough work animating any of her photos (or a very long search for a suitable photo.) The ideal photo I look for is what you would call a driver's license photo - neutral expression, head upright and not tilted, looking directly at camera.

Hi KindlyOne,

Thank you for the faces file you sent me and for the time and effort you put into this, which even included the 90x100 faces for Kristina and Amy I've asked you for! Special thanks for that! Smile

I've uploaded them here + the four preview screenshots you made:

Hi there!

Just did a new pic for IMP 209, maybe somebody likes it.

http://www9.picfront.org/picture/d5f04QmPuI/thb/bloodcat.jpg


Here's the zip file, it contains 33Face, 65Face, BigFace and normal face.

Bloodcat (IMP209)


Hola,

I do like it. Nice job. I switched it to IMP 214 though as my 209 was already being used.

If anybody would like to use it for 214 as well, I went ahead and uploaded it.

You'll find it here;
IMP 214

Same great pic. All I did was adjust the eyes and mouth graphics to fit 214.

Nice job on these recent pics! It's good to see the face section getting some more attention.

Question,
What faces do these new faces replace? I'm not sure who 234 and 235 are.

I'm getting alot of what seems like too much contrast. I've imported the color pallette from each individual picture (I was switching it too other PCs in the game). First it was over contrasted, Then I adjusted the contrast way down. It's still seems over contrasted. Not sure if it's actually a contrast problem per say.

Any body else getting this? It could just be particular to the programs I'm using.

The faces IDs 234 and 235 are just IDs that I chose to avoid conflicts with existing IDs. They don't replace anyone and are really meant to be IMP/AlterEgo mercs.

As for the contrast problem, it could be my monitor that caused it. All I know was that I had to darken the original image for it to work in JA2 - without it, the image was too bright in comparison to the other characters. But bringing down the image brightness caused other problems.

Basically, I adjusted contrast and brightness so that it looks okay on my monitor. I hadn't considered that my monitor could be off in terms of visual balance.

It may not be your monitor. This happened once before with another character. When I look at your picture above, it doesn't seem like your contrast is up that high.

In the game, the female IMPs are 208 - 215. The first female IMP pic is 208. After that, you have to count them out as you scroll through them.

Other than my strange contrast problem, I think your face mods are good! You should make some more.

I noticed this one wasn't in here.

I do not want to take credit. I did not make this face. In fact I've had it so long I can't remember who made it. If someone knows who it was, then they deserve to be mentioned because this is an awesome replacement for Ira.

Here's the sti;
Ira STI

In fact, I think that this should just go in the next 1.13 product as we are all probably sick of Ira's stock face.

Hello,

Hachiryoku
I do not want to take credit. I did not make this face. In fact I've had it so long I can't remember who made it. If someone knows who it was, then they deserve to be mentioned because this is an awesome replacement for Ira.


This face was originally created by Extropianer and shows lovely actress Sophie Marceau. Later an improved version of this face was released by Wulfy301.
< Source German forum >

You can find both versions in the archive /Faces/ section as well:

- Marceau_for_Ira_original_by_Extropianer
- Marceau_for_Ira_new_by_Wulfy301


Hachiryoku
In fact, I think that this should just go in the next 1.13 product as we are all probably sick of Ira's stock face.


No, I don't think so. Don't get me wrong, Extropianer did a great job creating this face and I like it very much, but I'm totally against the idea to include any Hollywood stars into the original v1.13 which should be a modding base! So it should be and keep the users and the modmakers decision to use any alternative faces or face packs like Buggler did that with his BPP Mod. Every one of us has his own taste (see the 'Who is you favourite merc?' discussion) and that's okay. Personally I have nothing against Ira's original face. I think it fits her character and (German) voice quite well, but for all of you who don't agree with that such alternative faces were created. It shouldn't be the concept of v1.13 to include any mods or modded files like new faces (apart from essential bug fixing of course) and force their players to use them without the opportunity to keep the "original flavour", my opinion. Smile


Best regards; Schein

Damn. I thought it was Maggie Q, inspired by her recent action-girl roles (Die Hard 4, Mission Impossible 3.)

If you hadn't pointed it out to me that it was actually Sophie Marceau, I wouldn't have known it. Smile

@ KindlyOne: I have to admit, that if I hadn't seen the original posting by Extropianer in the German board I wouldn't know that as well. Btw nice to read you again Wink
Well, I hope I didn't destroy any nice illusions some of you guys had for (or with?!) the mysterious girl with that. :lostwings:


Sandro
I never heard that name, nor seen that face before... so for me it's no Hollywood star. Smile


@ Sandro: Then you shouldn't have the problem I mentioned above^^ Smile

I think Sophie Marceau isn't the "typical" Hollywood star, but I'm not sure what does that even mean exactly, because I've never met one of them on a personal level so far.

Dieter is right, she seems to be a bit blue around the nose Wink
A few examples for caucasian skincolour ranges are from:

(24,16,Cool to (148,101,74) (Malice)
(57,24,Cool to (231,178,140)(Red)
( 24,8,0) to (206,166,140)(Scope)

On another note: There is really no point in creating just the 48x43 pictures. It's a lot better to create a 90x100 picture, animate it and rescale this picture to create the 48x43 and the others. This way, you can create an NPC as well at virtually no extra costs.

So, I'm like the discount modder. I'm using MS Paint and MS Word. I've got to scale first with Word, then animate with Paint. If I scale afterwards with Paint or Word, the picture comes out too different. Looks horrible in game. I'm scaling with Word vice Paint as it holds the picture quality better.

I'll keep playing with the color. Haven't found that sweet spot yet. Sometimes I'll use MS Office to change some of the picture color (hue/sat) before I start playing with it. It's hit and miss though. The numbers are different in MS Paint.

What I could really use is someone who wouldn't mind taking a base picture and giving it JA2 color via a better program. Then I could animate it.

That's what I did with this one;

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b144/Navetsea/ladybig.png

Someone else did the pic originally and I just animated it.

Have you tried using GIMP? It's free, and much more useful for image editing than MS Paint. I'm not sure how it works with JA2's limitations, though.

Kazuyas rare and legendary skin_tool of the crystal ages +5, can do what you are looking for. I haven't released it yet, because I never got around to tidy up the code. Although I have used it for quite some time now. Back then, I just started writing with a basic idea in mind and I kept rewriting it, until it did what I wanted it to do, so don't complain about some unusual or weired parts in the code.

My basic idea is this: I transplant the skin of an existing JA2 character onto a grayscale picture of a new character. I simply take a JA2 picture and paint all parts, that are not skin pitch black. This file becomes the donor file. Then I grayscale a picture of my new character and cut out everything that is not skin. I paste that cut out into a new rgb image with a fully black background. This file becomes the recipient file. My script then traverses all pixels in the donor file and saves all different rgb values, except for fully black. All rgb values get a luminance value assigned. Then it does the same thing with the recipient file. When this is done, my script calculates a color table, which assigns every luminance value of the gray picture the closest matching luminance value of the colored picture. By doing this, every rgb value of the grayscale picture has now a real rgb value of the coloured picture. The script then runs a second time over the grayscale picture and paints every pixel in its newly assigned skincolor and finally saves it as a seperate file. Then you can paste the new skin over your original character and do whatever you want to do with the clothing and hair etc. My tool is written in python and needs a python environment as well as the pygame module. Both can be downloaded for free. So here is the source code:

PS I wrote the script on a windows system, so Linux users might want to delete the second line Wink
Also make sure, that your grayscale picture uses about the same brightness as a grayscaled picture of the JA2 character you're using as donor, otherwise the script wont do its job properly.

Oh, and before you guys start complaining about the lack of comments in the code:
Real programmers don't write comments. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to read!

Sweet! Sounds like a winner. Didn't really understand much of what you said, but I get the basics.

So I need to download a python and stick it where?

I take it Python and Pygame are something I need to download and then put that script into right?

I will give this a whirl soon. Forgive the delay. Catching up late nights at work right now.

Yes, you need to download python, which you can get from python.org
Just check the download section and download the correct installer for your system and install it. Then you need to download the pygame module, which you can get from pygame.org. When you have done that, you start the python idle. Then you select File -> New Windows. In that new window, you paste in the code from my post and save it. Python will ask you for a name. so type in skin_tool.py.
The title of the window should now read: skin_tool.py -

Then you select Run -> Run Module
This should bring back the Python idle to the top. you execute my script by typing:
run(,)

See a screenshot here: http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/358/screen1te.png
There you can also see, what a donor file should look like.
The script will create a test.png file, where you saved the script. The test.png, is the same a s the recipient file, just with the skincolour instead of gray.

Found a better pic of Babydoll to use.

I'm quite proud of the outcome.

Enjoy.

Tried th pic in-game. General impression is that it looks good.

There are a few things that could use a bit of extra work here and there. The mouth opens a bit too much when she talks in the small window in the upper left corner and in the merc selection panel.

Also I think, as nice as the I.M.P selection pic looks, it doesn't really fit in too well with the other imps in the selection for allignement reasons (the head is too small compared to the other imps and thus appears not to fit the selection... it stands out and doesn't blend in).

Dunno if you get what I want to point out... just scroll through the imp appearance selection in-game a couple of times and you'll see it.
