  • Portrait Mod

    This mod lets you customize the Pokémon portraits. Additionally, it will copy the default emotion to empty slots, for use with the Starter Mod.

    Before continuing, please make sure you've reached the "Making Mods" section of the Sky Editor guide to ROM editing.

    Instructions

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

    2. Wait for the loading to complete. This may take a while depending on your computer.
    3. Portraits should be under (Solution Directory)/(Project Directory)/Pokemon/Portraits. Sky Editor has no UI for this, so you will need to use another program.

    Remarks

    Portraits can only have 15 colors.

    Hello. I may have a slight problem but I don’t know it’s because of my computer or not.

    Basically I’m trying to build my portraits. Now all I did was edit Male Wooper and Gardevoir’s portraits into custom versions (Credit to the original artists) since I wanna use them as my starter and my partner.

    But when it builds, it seems like it’s stuck on the “Packing” on Building Progress. On the bottom left, it says “Ready” but I’m not getting the Modpack thing like normal. It works with Starters and Generic but Portrait seems like it’s on a endless loop. 

    Before you ask, no. I cannot share any files because for some reason stuff isn’t displaying on my pc. I had to write this comment on my phone.

    I made a series of Spinarak Portraits and was wondering what the best way to save them is. I am sure they use less than 15 colours yet they do not show up correctly in game other than the standard portrait which has been slightly edited.

    I saved them using good old MS Paint. I am assuming I'll have to save them with Paint.NET or GIMP?
    I'll link the portraits below in case there is an issue I am missing. (These were saved and edited last in MS Paint so if that is the issue just let me know and I'll fix it)

    I try to create a portrait mod, but every every time I try to build continues loading without ever stopping while various error warnings appear which I don't understand. I created sprites for Lucario, if someone knows how to insert them or how i can do it, it would help me.

    Can you post a picture of what it looks like on the DS?

    After creating the portrait mod then editing the portraits, use Solution -> Build to create the ROM. Once complete, it'll appear in /Modpack/Output in the solution directory.

    Thanks for the reply but I managed to resolve my issues. :D
    It seemed that the images had way more colours in them for some reason as well as their Bit Depths been higher than what they should be.
