Hey there!

First of all, I already tried the site search but found nothing of help.

I'am looking for someone who can teach me a little bit about adding custom mercs to the game and especially about creating custom portraits and faces for those mercs.

Is anyone out there who can write a short Tutorial for people like me who want to get their faces into the game but dont know how?

Thanks in advance!

Did you try the Original War Face Editor? The admin from OW forums even made a JA2 version for us.

And you could ask Anv a few tips and tricks.

And if you want to start from scratch, we have a Library of JA2 Vanilla modding, including a guide like you need:

Edit. All should work. You can skip the 2 and 3 and the last one if you only want to create a (animated) face and not other stuff.

I forgot to mention that those links contain some outdated information as well.

For example, you don't need to use Proedit to mess with the face coordinates since there is a convenient XML in the Data-1.13\Tabledata\ folder called MercProfiles.xml where you can adjust all that stuff..

Hi I have a problem with a portrait I made. For some reason it dosent get animated. I checked it in face viewer and all the values I set in IMPFaces.xml are correct and face animates correctly in the program. However in game there are no animations at all for that face. Previously I at least got bugs with part of face flying off and such, but here animations just dont work at all.
