    Their all over SP. On the main page, click on Games on the left, Icewind Dale 2 on the right, Editors, Hacks and Custom Characters on the right. Subsection 3 has portrait packs. Or go here:

    If I recall correctly, there is an option on the start screen to start a multiplayer game. Oh, and welcome to SP, kinddred. Hope you find what you're looking for. Later.

    You can play IWD in co-operation with your friends. It's quite fun.

    I like the portraits in IWD2 but I always yearn for something new. How do you use custom photos? I always see a bar under the portrait that says 'custom photo' or something like that. I was just curiuos about the possiblities!

    You put the images in a "portrait" directory inside the game's install directory and select them in the game.

    I put a custom picture in the portait directory and then opened up the game. For some reason, after I set it to my custom picture the portrait didn't show up, the space where it should have been was empty.

    [​IMG] The portraits need to have specific dimensions and format. All the information is in the readme:

    The measurements for player portraits are 42x42 pixels for the smaller portraits (8-bit color runs faster but it can be up to 24 bit color), and 210x330 pixels for the larger portraits. To use a custom portrait, place it in the Portraits directory (in the install directory for the game) and add an S to the end of the small portrait name and an L to the end of the large portrait - otherwise the two names must be identical. The names must be 1-7 letters long, maximum - so the filename with the S or L added to the end is no longer than 8 total characters. The portrait files must be in BMP format.

    For example:
    XXXXXXXS.bmp for small (42x42, 8-bit)
    XXXXXXXL.bmp for large (210x330, 24-bit)

    For multiplayer, each player must have a copy of the portraits; otherwise they will see a blank icon instead of the other player's custom portraits. You will need to manually send these portraits to your friends as IWD2 has no method of transferring them.
