One thing disturbs me since I fixed that EoB1 Stone Gem in 2006. An esthetic matter. The portraits!
Eye of the Beholder-3 changes game 1-2 portraits. And mainly spoils them.
One poor "golden" lady suddenly gets ~black~ eyes instead of bright blue. Did she practice black magic?
As for the green ninja girl.
Suddenly she gets wider nose, irregular face form ...and a face wider(?) than that of male fighter.
This is just one case. There are more heroes looking like Chernobyl victims
after Beh-3 "change".
So to the point, how do we fix or replace this misery?
XWE editor (1.16 last beta) does find EotB-III character portraits in EYE.RES and allows to edit (!) but saving doesn't work. No way.
Exporting as .bmp for future editing works, though.
Maybe exporting portraits from games 1-2 and reformatting will be quicker than per-pixel editing.
In any case packing it into correct EotB-3 format (and EYE.RES) is not going to be 100% easy.
Perfection is the key. Fatality is the key. (c)
