PostSubject: Character Builder Question - Custom Races   Sat Oct 28, 2017 12:11 pm

Hello! Stumbled in here, new obviously, but I figured it was worth a shot.

I've gotten decently good at modifying and creating .part files to add my own custom content to the CB. However, something that's bothering me is the inability to modify the portrait used for things like custom races. Now obviously, this isn't a "make or break" situation, but it'd be nice for myself and my players. I seem to recall poking around in the CB files a LONG time ago and finding images for the buttons and whatnot, but I can't seem to figure out where that's located anymore. I figured if nothing else, that's where the images are located, so if someone knows a way to just change it through a .part file or even just happens to know where that stuff's hidden, I'd really appreciate it.

You're talking about the portraits available for displaying on the character sheets, right?

I think all of those are saved in a single directory. I'm not at a machine with the CB installed, but I will be later tonight. I can check there and share with you what I can figure out.

Unfortunately no, not on the character sheets. Specifically the image used when selecting the race in the character builder, usually shown below the stats and before the lore for the race. I know at some point I found a directory full of the buttons and other images used in the CB, but that was ages ago when WotC was still supporting it, and I'm not sure where it'd be stored now.

Yes I have not seen that customized myself I have been hacking quite a bit with CBLoader

right now I am trying to add skills to the class skill list and not having much luck

Late comment from me, for sure.

I dug around in the directories where I thought that I recalled finding some assets, but alas, no.

It is clear that I am not a coder of any sort.
