1) Go to your User(s) folder. You know, the one that has My Pictures, My Music and so on. Look for My Documents, then Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition.

2) There you create a folder called Portraits (with a capital P), and that's where you placed your custom portraits. Mind that the dimensions are different now:

Large: 210x330 (not really necessary, so don't worry if you don't have it)
Medium: 169x266
Small: 54x84

Now you will notice that when choosing your portrait, a CUSTOM button appears right beneath the portrait you're currently seeing.

Also remember that file names cannot have spaces, need to be 8-chars long at maximum, and also require the letter S, M or L, according to their size. Ex;: xxxL.bmp, xxxM.bmp, xxxS.bmp

And yeah, they have to be bitmaps.

Also here is a nice site for portraits (Click -> Link) But you will need to re-size them to the sizes stated above.

Thanks Servius.

Now that i got past the screen flickering and missing OpenAL components, i will try this out and hopefully get to play this game.

Can't wait to get through it and compare it to the old classic.

Ok I did as you instructed and made images of Medium: 169x266
size. However the image shows completely on the RECORD screen of your character but it cuts off and only shows a portion of it in the game screen (top right). How do you solve that?

Large is for when you are examine your stats.

Medium is for the picture you see when in the inventory screen and such.

Small is for the icon looking picture while on the game screen.
