    [​IMG] I can't find the install directory to add portraits. I looked in all my black isle files and couldn't even find the regular icewind dale portraits. So where are they?

    [​IMG] The ones that come with the game are hidden in the engine, you won't find them as regular bmp files.

    [​IMG] They are bmp files but they're compressed in bif files, along with the rest of game data.

    [​IMG] How do I use my new pics in the game? I tried to make a new folder but the game can't find them. How do I get the game to find and use them?

    [​IMG] Like you were told... Simply create a new folder called "portraits" in your game install directory and copy the portraits (have to be bmps, mind) in there. Next time you run the game you'll be able to pick them from the Customize your appearance screen.
