I know I've been asking a lot of newb questions but here's 1 more. Maybe other newbs can use them too.
How do you make custom portraits for a skin? I got rid of the thing infront of satin/sapphire's face but it still appears in the portrait, since it was made in UPaint before I modified the .utx in unrealed, so I'd like to know.
You could always just take a screenshot, crop it to the proper image size and import it into Ued over the old portrait.
Thass the way I did it once.
Take a screenshot of yourself in-game. Use the lockcamera command, remove the HUD (with the ToggleScreenshotMode command in UT2004)
Read this screenshot tutorial for more details.
