head nif for blackbird
« on: February 10, 2009, 03:24:14 PM »
Hey all,

I was wondering how I would go about getting a head nif to work for blackbird.  I am sure it is easy, but I am having a brain fart today.  I have the default head nif (so that it uses her portrait) but all I get is a pink oval.  I assume the head nif needs to be in her character folder, but I can;t remember how to access the builtins.

Thanks for any help!

Open up ffedit, go to the resources (?) tab and you'll see a bunch of animportrait_ entries.  It's easiest to select one of the entries for a built-in character, make a copy and edit it.  Change the name to animportrait_blackbird, and change the nif entry to point at the head.nif.  The head.nif needs to be in blackbird's mesh/character folder.

thanks for the response...As it turns out, I'm an idiot - I never unpacked the art.ff file - I couldn't find her mesh folder!  DOH!!!  :doh:
