Thread: Custom portrait

    Custom portrait

    How can I use a custom portrait that my friend drew or an image I like that I found on the internet? Instead of the ones that come stock?

    Put the image in your Fantasy Grounds portrait folder.

    Suggest you keep the size below 250x250px (and keep it square) to minimise mem usage.

    Usually jpg or png
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    You should encounter some .ppk files in the portraits folder. These are a form of zipped up folders. You can unzip these files using a program like 7-zip to unpack them to get an idea of what the official portraits are set up like. Also can use the same process in creating your own portrait packs in the same manner zipping up your custom portraits and then renaming the .zip to .ppk.
