Adding leader

Thu May 19, 2016 7:05 pm

I'm trying to add a new leader and I've come as far as getting the new leader to appear in the game, that seems to work fine.

The problem is that I also have added a portrait but that doesn't show up in the game. Also the text seems to be missing.
I haven't found anywhere to add information about text for the new leader.

If I use McDowell as an example, what should I change the below text to?
Text = $ldr_txt_USA_McDowell

(I've tried just changing it to the new leaders name but that didn't make any difference, Text = $ldr_txt_USA_HLAbott)

Do the portrait have to be in any specific format (besides being a .png-file of size 170x280) to appear in the game?

Update...

The portrait does show up if I bring up details about the man but not in the ledger.

Also, I tried adding the text below to LocalStrings_CW2.csv but it made no difference. Is there something wrong with the syntax perhaps?
ldr_txt_USA_HLAbott;Henry L Abott:§- A bearded man

Another update...

I didn't realize you have to add the portrait in three different sizes. Once I did that everything looks fine :-)
