Character Portraits. How can I add custom ones?
Long time ago I used Gatekeeper to manualy fix my characters in BG , but now Gatekeeper cant work with Steam version of the game. I'd like to change original portraits of characters with more beutifull ones but can't find the way to make it.

Some help maybe?

Not sure if this will work for you because I have the Beamdog version.

The new portrait dimensions are:

210x330 for Large (Used in the Epilogue of ToB, meaning BGEE doesnt use it yet)
169x266 for Medium (Used in Character Record)
54x84 for Small (Portrait for right side of game UI)

These must be in 24-bit .BMP files and should be no longer than 7 characters, followed by L, M, or S to denote what size it is. (ex: xxxxxxxM)

Under My Documents, there should be a "Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition" folder. Inside that, if there isn't a "portraits" folder already, create one and put your portraits there.

I will just add something to Flashburns perfect answer you don't need the medium Size only Large and Small are supported works fine for me.
And a small Tip don't use to dark Pictures or Backgrounds otherwise you can't see if you got dmg or not.

We can also add our own sounds which I really really want, but as I recall in the original game it didnt work on multi-player bcs you had to share them and install them manually. Would be nice if there was an editor for this, on the enhanced version, dont you think? Hope its not much dreaming! :D

C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition\Portraits
Instead of the XXX insert your user name.
Don't forget to put the BGEE.sql there as well :)
I highly recommend the "Super Ultimate Portrait Pack"
Have fun ;)
