Installation

Windows
JPS' Portrait Pack is packaged and installed with WeiDU and is distributed as a self-extracting archive. To install, simply double-click the archive and follow the instructions on screen.

Alternatively the files can be extracted from the archive using WinRAR. If properly extracted, you should have an JPS_Portraits folder, Setup-JPS_Portraits.tp2 and Setup-JPS_Portraits.exe in your BG2 folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-JPS_Portraits.exe and follow the instructions on screen.

Please run Setup-JPS_Portraits.exe in your BG2 folder to reinstall, uninstall or otherwise change components.

Mac OS X
If the mod was previously installed, uninstall it before extracting the new version. JPS' Portrait Pack is packaged and installed with WeiDU. To install, simply extract the contents of the mod into your BG2 folder.  If properly extracted, you should have a jpspp folder, Setup-JPS_Portraits.tp2, Setup-JPS_Portraits, and Setup-JPS_Portraits.command in your BG2 folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-JPS_Portraits.command and follow the instructions on screen. You'll receive a message informing you that WeiDU can not auto-update--don't worry, this is normal.

Contents

Each portrait is a separate component. In JPS' own words:

"The first two portraits I blame on the PPG flirt packs. One of the flirt options for Aerie is "Stare down Aerie's robe", but if you look at her portrait you'll notice that her robe is of the non-stareable kind. So to get a deeper and more immersive roleplaying experience I made this. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

(part of the picture is borrowed from a portrait from the Portrait Portal. I'll give it back if they ask)

My favourite flirt option for Jaheira is "Play with Jaheira's braids". Unfortunately I got a bit carried away, so the 38x60 version that you see most in the game doesn't look that great. At the moment I'm using the second portrait instead.

I was allergic to headbands for a while, so I removed them from the Nalia and Viconia portraits. Then I started editing other things as well, and then my trial version copy of Photoshop stopped working. These two would be "works in progress" if I was planning to ever do anything about them. But since I probably won't they're just 'works in'.

And finally there's a picture of Imoen without the stuff in her hair and with an attempt at a smile."
