Hello - though not replying, I have been checking the site for years. I'm amazed and thank You
all for the great mods. I am starting to play it again (as used to from time to time).
I've intensively browsed the forum again, but still of no avail - however I learnt a lot
of theoretics of portrait editing. You may call me lazy, but I am rather just too old and
dumb to make it myself, so here is my humble request.
Would anyone please edit the coordinates of Dr. Laura Colin's sti-s (from Wildfire) in
the way so I could replace by them the IMP sti nr. 214? I would be so very grateful...

Request for the Expendables 2 mercs portraits to add to JA2 1.13. Of course a full Expendables mod (portraits, voice set) would also be great. Smile

Tried following the custom face tutorials, but this is beyond my talents.

Hey Guys, was finally able to figure out how to do face pictures for the game. I've been playing with custom portraits ever since I got Ron's faces pack. The images are, as my brother tells me, a little bit over exposed. I'll try reworking the colors some other time as I'm having a blast amassing more pictures to try and put into the game. Planning on finally doing that Sgt. Kelly from Tears of the Sun pic for IMP characters.

http://www.majhost.com/gallery/theanorak/JaggedAlliance2/dunnbigface.jpg[/image]

http://www.majhost.com/gallery/theanorak/JaggedAlliance2/dunn.jpg[/image]

I saved the files in both 7z and rar format, and I've included the coordinates in a notepad file inside the packages.

Dropbox Link

Have fun guys.

Edit: guys, I can't seem to make the preview pics come out. :\ does it have anything to do with my Image host?

EDit2: Gotit! Very Happy

Hi guys, I need help. I made a portrait, but for some reason it dosent get animated. I dont even get glitches, just a still portrait. I checked the IMP portraits INI and settings appear correct. I also used face viewer and face got animated properly.

Female

eyes X = 0
eyes Y = 0

mouth X = 0
mouth Y = 27

Please help.


Here's preview, I must say I like how it turned out, if only the animations would work:

Game treats STI as non-animated frame when y = 0.

Use 1 or above for y value.

Edit: (on reply for below post)
@Taro
Works for me, coordinates are off and mouth frames need touch up though. Check ur STI & XML are in correct folder.

Tip: Good practice to have customized files in 'Profiles\UserProfile_XXX' folders for testing purposes and prevention of accidental file overwrite.

Looks like the eye coords are all messed up. It's a custom face from quite a while back (before they added the glasses and other stuff for the portraits). I have been out for too long to know what the exact cause is.

As Kaerar says, it's an older face, but it looks like it may be the facegear which is the issue rather than the face itself (does the mouth animate okay?)

I don't know who put together the facegear art, but there are a number of face gear art elements that either don't fit or look very rough.

I had an idea how to make user faces, does anybody of you know Saints Row? If you have a Steam account you can "play" the character creator for free, it is great fun and you can create and download/upload almost any kind of human being, I created a decent girl which I would like to add to JA2 but I would need help, the best think is the avatars move at least their eyes in the character creator, so you simply have to make a screenshot at the right moment, they have a kind of comic look that fits very well to JA2, this is it but needs improvement (it does not work in the current status), anybody interested?

http://www11.pic-upload.de/13.07.14/eq3x6kaxu4n.jpg

Ingame, quality got lost too much when downscaling to 256 colors.

BTW if anyone wants her for Saints Row IV I can give him the link to download.

Hum. That doesn't look that bad actually. Does this also include lip movement? That would make it easier to, well, get pics to animate speaking.

At the moment only the big picture has acceptable quality, there must be a way to convert it to 256 colors without loss of that much quality, I have yet to find out.

I maybe can provide pictures with moving mouth and eyes, however before I do so, I do not want to violate compyright issues, is it legal to post screenshot from other games to make faces from them?

I am afraid if anyones likes her and wants her in the game, anybody must help me a little.

As beautiful as e original,
http://i.imgur.com/OM2VPHs.gif
(Reduced from 1600x1200 to 48x36 256-color gif)

Using a 3d model,
http://i.imgur.com/PjrzBpe.png
(Original 400x400 picture reduced to 48x48 256-color gif)

Always edit in RGB mode. Scale down image, create the frames if animated and then finally reduce to 256-color only at the very last step.

Another consideration is can the program generate the face model with no/white/one-color background?

Or alternatively reduce the colours of your background by hand or limit the number of colours. Your faces may not reduce so well as you have a lot of bloom/soft highlights in your faces, also consider shades of similar colours if you can, so for example if your long haired woman had brown eyes you will have more gradients of colour to use for smoother pic.

It's just a case of overwriting existing face sti's with newly created ones. So if you wanted to change Barry's face you need to overwrite 00.sti files in the FACES directory, you'll need all the different sized ones to work on different screens these can be found in bigfaces, 33face, and 65face.

You may have to update the face co-ordinate files too, if they use different co-ordinates than their vanilla ones.

Remade the Gasmasks, don't want to make a new thread because I don't think it was that much of a project, or effort or whatever.

I was annoyed whenever I put on a gasmask to see the red lining, ofcourse this also plagues the NVGs but to be honest, it wasn't as bad a tinge as the gasmasks were suffering from. I'll probably find a more suitable graphic and replace these aswell, but for now I think they're better than the ones currently ingame.

I was thinking of doing ones for other face masks as well, to match up with the new disease feature, or even separate NVG types.

Note: Spooky, Screw, Laura and the 2 1.13 IMP portraits I've replaced and so the new masks may be off for these characters.

I started to work on some JA2 stuff again and found an old character I worked on.
Since nobody knows how Bobby Ray looks, I thought I would create him as playable character. happy

But I can't decide if he should have a gun shop as background or a storage hall?

Original Person: Clarence Williams III

I would say picture number 2 is what Bobby Ray would look like.
What do you guys think?

Is he made out of gold?

I'd choose 1 if I had to. Though you could probably turn down the red values in his colour a bit.

Ok, this is my first try animating a face.

The lips seem to be too active and the image color is still just at 60% JA2 color style,
but I had a lot of fun [and pain]. I am hungry for more. big grin

Opinions?

Looks good, good enough for some hopefully not discouraging critique on some minor details.
(note that I am detail obsessed so ... ;)

The glasses bridge in frame 3 and 4 of the 48x43 portrait is blurred beyond recognition,
perhaps edit some pixels.

The silhouette in the 106x122 portrait could be softer around the hair,
i guess you did cut out the persons pic from somewhere and placed it on top of the shop background.
(some pixels indicate you may have tried to smoothen the transition, but if so its not enough for me;)
For a smoother transition especially around the hairs,
you could paste the cutout into a new picture, select the background, delete to transparency,
increase the selection border by 1 pixel, then use the eraser to delete ~ 50% of the outline,
so the background pic will somewhat shine through later.
For even smoother border in big portrait set eraser to 33% for 1st step,
then increase selection by another pixel and delete again by 33%.

Besides, to make the set complete the 31x27 sized portrait (in \65faces) for auto resolve is missing,
along with camo portraits if it should be 1.13 compatible.

Great input. thumbs up

Yeah the blurred areas come from 'warping' the mouth and eyes areas,
so I get the desired mouth and eyebrow movements, because copy / paste
would destroy the light reflections on the skin. It looks good until hit the save button.

Is there another, better way to get the eyebrows and mouth in motion?

I will apply what you pointed out and work on the three camo's and \65's.

Good stuff.

I also mostly use the Gimps "warp" function to create the eye&mouth movement,
unfortunately it merges some┬┤pixels and changes their color so they may "drop out" of the range present in palette,
and I guess that is what also happens to you.
(the game respectively .sti files appear to tolerate a deviation from an indexed color of up to 03 in one of the 3 values
before the pixels color effectively changes and may appear "wrong" in stiEditor and game, thats valid for my XP system, ymmv)
Therefore I start with pasting what will be the 1st frame of the biggest animated portrait in 90x100
into one template pic of 360x200 so the single pic fits exactly 8 times,
create the variations of the 1st frame in the 7 other parts, save the big pic as 8bit r5g6b5 .bmp and create the portraits palette from that pic,
then use that as template with grid lines placed for eye&mouth parts to copy and paste the 8 frames into stiEditor,
then copy&paste 58x65 cutout of 1st pic into frame#0 of the 90x100 sti and save with adjusted offsets for E&M
(the 90x100 portrait usually has a generous distance from head to pic border and the head should fit well for the 58x65 without scaling;)
Then i use duplicates of the big pic to scale each down to one of the required sizes for animated portraits, and repeart the above process.
For camo I manually select desired areas, create duplicates to place different camo layers over selected areas in each.

Note that some downscales will result in uneven pic height, so that scaling may slightly move the pixel positions in the 2nd line of 4 pics
I use 2 by 4 because 8 in one line gives me bad oversight (still working on a 4:3 sreen :p),
so I prefer to manually set the height to even number in scaling dialogue if required.
And, scaling down also shifts colors unless you select no adaption at all,
so each downscale may require to be saved as .bmp for an individual palette import.

wow, so much to look out for.

I made a texture out of the greens from the wooden camo images of imp 206
and copied snippets of (white to alpha) camo over each other into new image,
to get the random greens texture. Then you can select any shape from that texture
and use it as the shape of the brush tool. Spray speed to 15 or 20.

This way all my characters will have the same color camo, but a template would be
better like you mentioned with the cutouts for the eyes and mouth, but also for the
different camos.

K, here are four Bobby R. Wooden Camo versions with the original picture beside for
better comparison and with numbers for better association.
