Missing character portraits
As the title says, I am missing character portraits from the story segments like the hallways and such. They're just empty hallways.
Using the knossos release with no other fancy stuff going on.

Re: Missing character portraits
Please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

Have you tried to verifying file integrity for Dimensional Eclipse (should be a menu item on DE's tile in Knossos' home tab)?

Re: Missing character portraits
Have to say, that i am actually able to confirm this. Checked the CBAnims for the first 5 missions.

Not to speak of, that DE wants MVP 3.8.1 only, that is not available to download, anymore.

So i would say, that this error lies in wrong assigned CBAnim files.

Is one of my releases broken or not working? Please send a PM here or on Twitter, a public tweet @NovachenFS2 or write a reply in my own release threads here on HLP, because these are the only threads i am still participating in.

 
Re: Missing character portraits
It's not an error, it was done intentionally. As for why you'll have to ask Droid.

Re: Missing character portraits
Is it the Knossos version? Because that one is known to have run into some... problems relating to that.

Re: Missing character portraits
I think someone purged them in anticipation of replacing them with new art but that never happened, so I think uh, the placeholders should be put back for now.

Re: Missing character portraits
So is there anything I can do to get the portraits in the latest version or am I done for?

Re: Missing character portraits
I'd say just grab a non-knossos version and replace the visual
.vp files inside the knossos version with the non knossos version's.
New art is currently being worked on but I can't give an exact ETA for when it will be fully complete.
