Custom portraits for IOS

Hello, everyone.

Does anybody know how to transfer custom portraits to IOS ver. IWD?

Of course I know that i-fun box would do this, but now this program doesn't operate properly.

Thank U

    You need to zip a .bmp file , then rename it to .bg2portrait ( the extension .iwdportrait isn't working at the moment, it's probably bugged....).
    After that, email the .bg2portrait file to yourself, download the attachment and tap on it: you should be able to see the option: Copy to IWD. That's it! At this point, you can start a new game ( or load a current one) and choose your custom portrait when you are asked to select a portrait ( by tapping on the new button "custom" ).

    Important note: Portraits must still follow the file format and naming convention described in the game’s included manuals: 24-bit BMP, 8 characters or less, with a standard aspect ratio of 210x330 for the large portrait.

    @Luke93 I’ve been trying to get this to work for all ie games but the option to copy from my iPhone iPad email to the games doesn’t pop up. I get my portrait, use paint to make it 210 330 bmp. Zip it and rename it using .bg1portrait or bg2portrait but it doesn’t work. Help?

    It should work fine for BG:EE and BG2:EE. If it doesn't work for you, then perhaps the “zip” suffix is still in the file name...?
    As far as IWD:EE is concerned, I haven't tried it in a long time... Try renaming it using ".iwdportrait"...

    2022 - Nov - I got it working for icewind dale on ipad pro 12.9 inch

    I used extension = (filename).iwdportrait

    and I made 2 versions of the portrait image files (24bit, bmp)
    1 - Large portrait [420x660] for the character record section of the game,
    2 - Medium portrait [169x266] for the right side of the screen party selection/ character roster

    For both portrait files to belong to the same character, file names need to be same except for one letter at the end.
    - Large portrait image file name needs to have L on the end of the name (example: filenameL.iwdportrait)
    - Medium portrait image file name needs to have M on the end of the name (example: filenameM.iwdportrait)

    Then ziped the bmp file, change the file extension and
    used one of the following method to get it open in ipad
    - air drop the file to your ipad [or]
    - email it to self

    when I clicked the file or accepted the air drop, it gave me an option to open in icewind dale as picture below.

    Then I loaded up the game and in the character portrait selection menue, the new portraits showed up when I clicked the left arrow.


    if above method doesn't work for you, below is something I did before I used the above method and may have prompted the ipad to recognize the '.iwdportrait' as icewindale file.

    I plugged my ipad into my mac using usb cable, got into my ipad files using finder window, dragged and dropped my portrait image file with .iwdportrait extension under icewindale drop down folder.


    hope this works for other people.
