try them instead of the mink pictures. if they work then you should look for some special pixels in the pics i gave you and adjust your mink pics

if you don't have any success i will ask the team what to do. they will surely have an answer for you

timothy told me to give you this:

Even if you aren't an ERM script writer, you may wish to include custom hero portraits in
your WoG map. The following are some simple instructions for doing so.

a) First you need to create a large and small portrait of the correct size and graphic type.

 A portrait consists of two differently-sized graphics files in PCX format (256 colours only)
so you will need a graphics program capable of exporting files in this format. One file is
used for the larger portrait picture, and the other for the smaller one (such as the one that
appears in the list of heroes opposite the list of towns on the main display).

 The large file must be 58x64 (58 pixels wide and 64 pixels high).
 The small file must be 48x32 (48 pixels wide and 32 pixels high).

 Both files should have names that are a maximum of 8 characters long plus the extension.

 Place both files in your Heroes3\Data folder and zip them together with your map before
 sharing it with other WoG players or sending it to a web site. Make sure you include a note
 telling players to copy the files to the Data folder! (You may even wish to put a reminder
 into a Day 1 Event in the map so that nobody accidentally misses it.)

 For this example, we'll name the large file "sylvia.pcx" and the small file "sylvia-s.pcx"

b) Create a timed event in your map (you can name it anything).
c) Set the event so it won't trigger for any players and set the event day to 600.
d) Look up the Internal Hero Number of the hero whose portrait you'll be customizing.
   There's a list called "Format H" in the ERM Help. Hero numbers go from 0 through 155.
   For this example, we'll use Sylvia, whose hero number is 3. This number goes immediately
   after the !#HE command and before the colon, e.g,. !#HE3:L1^sylvia-s.pcx^;
   If the hero number was 17, we would put !#HE17: instead.
e) In the event body, put the following (assuming we're changing Sylvia's portrait):

   ZVSE
   !#HE3:L1^sylvia-s.pcx^;  [Set small portrait for Sylvia]
   !#HE3:L2^sylvia.pcx^;    [Set large portrait for Sylvia]

f) Click OK to save the event.
g) Save your map.

If you want to set multiple custom portraits, you can add additional lines to the event.
You only need a single "ZVSE" at the top of the event.

Important: If you edit a hero that will be using a custom-designed portrait image, do NOT
click on "customize" next to the portrait as that will override the ERM command and your
customized portrait will not be used.

get the hero number used in !#HExx:L1 and !#HExx:L1 from my second post with hero numbers
try it if you are still eager to do so.

the names used in the script are not specific. any name will work since it is directly written in the script

ZVSE
!#HE115:L1^mink_s.pcx^; [Set small portrait for Sylvia]
!#HE115:L2^mink.pcx^; [Set large portrait for Sylvia]

the pcx files should be in folder ..\data
put the script in a timed event or in a file called script99.erm which should go in folder ..\data\s. thus the tazar's pic will be changed every time you play a wogified map

i think i found the problem with your mink picture

An important note about palettes, Heroes 3 requires that all animations have the first 10 colors of the palette index set to certain "system colors". You'll see these if you open the palette of an existing animation.

perhaps this applies to portraits too. try to edit the palette of your pic. for this you will need something like Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop

Hai guise, i'm new and i found this old thread thinking that maybe it was better to reanimate this one instead of making a new and fresher one, so sorry if i was wrong. I was wondering if someone can make me .pcx files of these portraits or some of them:

I tried to do them by myself with paint and a .pcx converter program, but everytime the colors were shattered or something else was wrong.
Thanks so much in case.

Does this no longer work with the newest version of WoG?  Because it was working fine until I updated WoG, now all my customs are gone and this doesn't work.

Those ones from heroes 2 are very good resemblances.
I especially like the ones for Vatavna, Dawn, and Jaklin.
The Darlana one is good too, and the Barok and Astra ones look just like the characters.

But those other ones for heroes 3... they are terrible, none of them look anything like the characters. Some of them are not even the right sex. Only the one for Gem has a slight resemblance.

1. Download Irfan View.
2. Choose photo, make second copy of it and resize the first photo to 48x32 pixels and second (copy) to 58/64 (IMAGE ---> Resize/resample) and edit it so they both will have max 256 colors (Increase/Decrease color depth --> 256 colors).
3. Name the portrait correctly (as Ste wrote on 1st page)

If u will do everything I have written and put the both portraits to DATA folder, they will appear in game.

Anyway, everything that I wrote is on the first page of this thread (facepalm)
