    Portraits, how to?

    Can someone point me to something that explains how to get Portraits into a .mod and/or a campaign? Such that they are included when the export is ran?

    I've poked around with it and am just having no luck with it.

    I am not sure you can save in a .mod. As far as I know they are saved as .pak

    Yes, just throw your portraits into a zip file and rename the extension to .ppk. There is no special XML files needed to manifest/catalog the images. Obviously you will want to place the .pak file into %AppData%\Fantasy Grounds\portraits.
    If you want to separate your portraits/images into sub-categories, separate them into different folders (naming them respectively to the category) before zipping.

    No there isn’t. Portraits use a completely different way of working and are not part of any xml structure in a campaign. So they can’t be exported. All of the official products that have portraits all contain a separate .ppk file with the portraits.
    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 can’t export portraits, all you can do is a manually created .ppk file (not .pak - that’s for rulesets) in the portraits directory.

    Well that would explain it. Thanks!

    Doh! It is .ppk for the portraits extension, not .pak.
    .pak that is used for the rulesets.
