Will these work for current saved games, or do you have to start over a new game?

*** Also has anyone noticed that J.C. Robinson in the USA has a totally blank portrait? I can' tell if that happened after I added these models or its a glitch in the game???

Might want to check that one out...

Also WH Walker CSA Appears twice in some scenarios, not sure why.

GREAT JOB GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for catching this :wacko:

A quick fix for Robinson go into Gamedata/models then open file 630 which is JC Robinson and change the line for portrait to read "Unit_USA_JRobinson.png" (minus ") ie delete the C, I think that should get him working.
I'll change the download as well.

I have only just reinstalled the game so I dont have a save with most of the generals to test on but in general as long as file numbers dont change you can add updated models ok just make sure to delete the cache file.

Where and when do you have the WH Walkers? He should appear with the 64 General pool and I cant find him in any of the scenarios which doesnt mean another event might be scripting him in again.
The CSA has 4 Walkers in total :)

Another possibility is a problem with another model bringing him in as a substitute Trimble and Maury are the 2 closest altered files JGWalker and CWilcox the nearest - there is a pattern to such things but I cant remember what it is, check that these guys are present.

The alias files match up ok.

I think it was the bloody road south, or one of the scenarios that starts in 1863 or 1864. All i ever play are the full scenarios so it doesn't bother me, and I have even had Butterfield from USA spawn twice without any mods during an Athena game which was bizarre. Just wanted you guys to know. It was definitely the same Walker portrait that came up twice, that is for sure.

Ok I dont have the BRS but I remember from from some of the mod scenarios for AACW that Walker came with some troops then still from the scripted events.
It sounds similar you dont notice until they have their own face :)

Guys is there a way to change which General can be promoted?

Some Generals who even made it to Major and Lieutenant General are stuck at Brigadier.

Yes. You can change the max rank in the file for the general inside the model folder. You may need to delete the cache afterwords.

You also need to add a link to the higher level upgraded model. Actually that's the most important thing. I think they'll still promote w/o the max rank being right, but no chance without a link to the higher level model.

Thanks guys. I am going to start a new post for this since it isn't exactly regarding portraits.

Also, while you guys think about adding some new generals, I see there are two from the last bundle that was posted, you should really think of adding Joshua Chamberlain. Besides being a favorite of most people, he did rise to major general and did oversee the end of the war when Lee surrendered. Just a thought, pretty awesome general to be left out of the game, even if his promotion was late. Maybe he should spawn around the same time as Custer?

I'm not the best, but these all work in game, maybe one of you can clean them up more, I did my best with colorizing and editing the pics I could find. These are the missing ones from the class of 1863, adding to what you guys already did. I'd say the main one is Elliot as he was a 2 star General. Down with the clones!!!!

I have learned so much from you guys, hopefully this is a decent contribution.

Here are some better ones of Walcutt. I just realized I didn't send all of my final drafts, some need to be cleaned up more than others, but a lot of work is done there to get you going if you are interested.

Cadwalader is just in there because his regular picture in game makes him look like a caveman or sasquatch.

Hello,

I'm working on a mod in which I plan to add all generals who historically reached the rank of Brigadier General, would it be ok if I use some of the pictures posted in this thread?
I won't have the time to do decent portraits to all 500 or so added generals so I've basically used regular photos so far.

I'll also add all historal units as recruitable elements but that will not be as time consuming since I've already done most of that work.

Anyone interested in helping with this project are welcome to send me a message :-)

Anything that I have posted is something that I did myself, and anyone is welcome to use what I post. Generals that are not in the game take a couple more steps to add so they show up as an event, like Lo Armistead, but doing all the generals would be amazing.

Feel free to use anything from my posts, some are more finished than others, but I can upload more of the finished products later when I get a chance. My guess is the other guys are fine with you using their stuff since this is a collaborative journey we are all on, but I guess I cannot speak for everybody.

For what it's worth, I think this one looks better than the previous one.

Yeah I agree, Armistead was a tough one to get a good picture of. I think this one is far better that the other ones.

Updated the collection for those posted until Walcutt.
Will add the non in game faces to the graphics to keep them handy.

Have also made a new Alfred Terry more fitting to the Civil War era.
