Dreu Noctem > The Cafe Whim - Pictures and Screenshots > How To: Making Your Own Portraits in NWN

Posted by: dave Jul 8 2017, 07:43 PM
I used to build portraits manually with phto editing software like irfanview and gimp, but it turns out there's a quicker way, using the game itself, if you want to go with quick n dirty:


Have NWN Automatically create it for you
  • Place a .JPG into your "/portraits/" directory where you installed NWN (i.e. C:\NeverwinterNights\portraits\Mypic.jpg). If there isn't a folder called portraits, create one.
  • Start NWN and either start a new game or load a saved one.
  • Start the console by hitting the tilde key ("~")in the upper left hand corner.
  • Type "Conv" and then Tab which will auto complete the command "ConvertPortrait" (remember, commands are CaSe SeNsItIvE)
  • Add to that the name of your image. For example "Mypic", don't add the extension
  • This will automatically create all the different files needed. Zip it up and share it with the community, you're done.
(Thanks to Mystra and Georg Zoeller)
