but how exactly do i do this? there is a "team player pictures" option in the modifier tool but i dont know what to do with that

no one knows this?


I could do a tutorial on how to do this, but it's just easier to do the process of using the plugin edit so all players just keep portraits at all times. If you need to see step by step how to do that, please view the first post on both my all time teams roster and UFDR threads in the releases and previews section.

Yes, place the created player on a team and you can give them a portrait. If you have the always keeps portraits option set with the plugin, he will have that portrait on any team you put him on.

Hey,

Not sure why its not working for you. If you did it exactly like I did, it will absolutely show up.

Hey Dee,

I'm just curious, after searching on Google for updated portraits, a lot of the images that pop up are not great quality once you resize them to 1024x1024. What do you recommend doing to portraits in paint.net to achieve the best quality in game?
For example, I save a png that is 400x384 and resize to 1024x1024 but the resolution is distorted or the image is stretched? Would you recommend a site to get the most recent images of players which would look clear in game without having to edit a watermark like Getty images?

Great tutorial. I've been adding some team logos. Most of them work, but everytime I try to import an image over a generic floor logo (I. E. The logos that show the team name on the floor while creating a stadium instead of saying, moda center or staples center) it immediately reverts back to the original image. I can open the file I saved into 'moddimg' with explorer. It shows the image I want. When I load the same file with editor, through the generated list, it always reverted back. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

That's a great question, I have no clue how that works. Maybe reach out to some of the court/stadium modders like Lagoa, Manni, etc.

I didn't get into modding stadiums this year.

Thanks for the quick response. Turn out, I wasn't in the right file. To anyone reading this, the floor logo files are in "2y" I. E. Logo_arena_name_000....

I'm new to this but I followed your tutorial and before actually changing a portrait with the File Explorer I decided to just look up the *a1.iff file for what I assume is one of the European players chr_r4041.iff and to try change the face of someone on a locally saved roster that I had downloaded, though I also tried this with the official roster. In Limono I double clicked the player whose portrait I wanted to swap as a test and changed their portrait ID from 2662 to 4041 and clicked on refresh roster in Limono, but after several attempts and cycling through teams the portrait never changed. What might I being doing wrong? Thanks for your help.
