Hello!
I think to share CAMOFACES for AV here. Which I encountered somewhere or made! You all are welcome to share your findings too if you happen to have them.

I begin with this couple: Angel & Maria DaSilva
Angel DaSilva
https://my-files.ru/Get/u94vva
https://my-files.ru/Save/0pbyzz/89.zip
EDIT: I realized that BIGFACEs need to be checked too! So he got a decent one now. Also I edited CAMOs slightly.
NORMAL retouched + 3 lowquality CAMO + retouched BIGFACE. I recommend my NORMAL coz original was quite bad (sleep with open eyes, no background, yucky wart)
Maria DaSilva
https://my-files.ru/Get/cetz9z/88.jpg
https://my-files.ru/Save/btx3zw/88.zip
3 CAMO: 2 masterpieces from VR + my URBANCAMO overlay (may count for quality one too!) happy

Have a pair questions
1) I found this soft:
https://my-files.ru/Get/f1fe7j/STI%20soft.jpg/thumb400.jpg
Is there some better for faces editing or powerful sti-viewer/faces-viewer I missed? Newer versions of these may be?
2) How to extract NPC 48x43 portrait if I need it for making CAMO? Skyrider like an example.[SOLVED]

Additon I
Toggle Spoiler

Cheer leader I will be adding new work, lootie or links in the top post for convenience, to stay unscattered and sorted out. Chill Beer

There is an enhanced version of stiEditor, get it here https://mad-god.webs.com/downloads.htm, last link at page borrom.
/edit: oops, link atm not available, get it here.
The UI is in german, to get an english ui rename the extension of the contained file [sti-edit.nl] to the language code of your machines OS.

The enhancement is the "multi add" button,
it allows you to specify a directory from where the editor will import all present .bmp files (sorted by filename) as consecutive frames.
Obviously the benefit of this function increases with number of frames in the .sti files, and total number of sti files you plan to create.

I work on the pictures with ecternal image manipulation program, as the variety of tools makes it easier, more comfortable and gives me better results.

You may want check the last "How I create the camo portraits:" section of this message

They are in the archive JA2Installdir\data\faces.slf, .slf is a proprietary format by Sir-Tech,
to open .slf files get SLF-Explore e.g. from here, 7th program on that page,
UI is again in german and no localization available, but handling the program is rather intuitive, supports drag&drop

Other people prefer dragon unpacker, but i have no link and cant say anything about it.

There are at least two other useful STI editors:
DotNetStiEditor 1.0.5 by pipetz
and STI editor by Tox.
For unpacking SLF archives, unslf works well, too:
unslf.exe name.slf *



7609+fix | 7609+AI (r847) | 7609 unofficial modpack | Win8+ fix | Experimental project | Vengeance:Reloaded | Youtube

Can someone re-upload this to somewhere else? I like mediafire but my country regularly blocks it for being attacked by hakers or its servers being misused in different ways or something. I did not inquire precise details. Anyways I have no access to mediafire right now!

How Jerry ended up not having vanilla BIGFACE (or that's vanilla with plain black bg?)? He gets recruited in UB DLC if I am not mistaking, not? not sure
Why Calvin doesn't need 48x43 portrait? Does he get recruited in vanilla?? suprised


Fogot to say I will be adding new stuff in the top post!

tmi: calvin is a reference to cleve blakemore who worked at Sir-Tech,
he obvioulsy was quicly recognized by the other devs as such a despicable person that they decided to put him into the game as Calvin,
so it is quite hard to imagine that they would ever allow him to be on the team again, not even in the game.
Btw in contrast to all other head miners, calvin has the (people in)"town doesn't care" flag set.
