    (PSMD Only) Portrait Mod

    This mod lets you modify the portraits used in dialogue.

    This only supports Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon for now, but can support Gates to Infinity with some more work. Leave feedback in this GitHub issue if you're interested, and I'll prioritize it accordingly.

    Instructions

    1. On the New Project window, choose "Portrait Mod" in the drop-down, and fill in the name with something that makes sense. Then click OK.

    2. Wait for the loading to complete.
    3. The portraits are in (Solution Directory)/(Project Directory), in various sub-directories (ignore the "Raw Files" directory). 

    Remarks

    Unlike in Explorers of Sky, this project will not substitute missing portraits. The Starter Mod will take care of that for you.

    Is there any color limit to portraits like there is for Explorers of Sky?

    Nope. PSMD (and GTI) support 256 * 256 * 256 colors just like most other formats.

    I have a question since I am new to this, what kind of external program do you recommend to work here?

    I have little experience with image editing. I usually use MS Paint for simple stuff and GIMP for slightly more complex stuff, but actual artists may have different preferences. Actually editing portraits is out of my skill set, unless I do something silly like add a mustache or a top hat, which I'd probably do in paint. And that's the extent of my art skills 😅

    Going through the files, I notice that non-starter pokemon have blank backdrops for the appropriate emotes when there's no portrait to fill that. If I'm using the starter mod and edit any of these portraits to make a full set, will it still default to the default expression for my new starter pokemon, or will it use the edited images set up in here?

    If you try to use both at the same time, it will fail because my patchers don't know how to safely merge things yet. For the time being, you'll need to either disable the starter mod's portrait patching (right-click the project, click properties, uncheck the appropriate checkbox, and save) or don't use the portrait mod.
