Is this mod compatible for multiplayer?
No sadly. All friends have to have it on when playing MP. In addition to that, we are not Ironman compatible due to the name changes. Check out SWoA's Ironman sibling though!

Is this mod save game compatible?
Yes but if loading in from an old save game, the portrait names will be that of the original leader but the portrait itself will change to it's anime counterpart.

What if HOI4 gets updated?
We'll get to work as soon as possible and roll out updates.

When 'till the next update?
When it's ready. We make sure they are in a finished state first.

Will there be animated portraits?
Is this even trendy anymore?

Who is the girl/source for x? (plus loading screen source)
You can ask for the girl/source in our Discord server. The questions committee will handle such matters.

I have discovered a bug/missing portrait/missing name/etc.!
Check on our Discord and submit your issue to the questions committee or just lodge it in the comments below.

...and all the artists who made this mod (and pretty much other anime mods) possible!

Note: Please do not use the Wilhelmina portrait for your own purposes, especially for your own mod(s). I commissioned this particular art of her and do not wish for it to be used elsewhere.

What's the difference between this mod and you previous mod that does the same thing?
Starguard  [author] Dec 2 @ 8:05am 
@Ellinakias, yeah that usually happens on the 25-26th of December unfortunately. The only option to go around this is to use console, turn off AI for a day, switch to another country, wait for a day or two, then switch back. This is most likely because of some special scripting in the special Christmas news event file which we're considering simplifying or not since it only happens to one country.

@Starguard yes
