Custom PC Graphics (E2)

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to use some custom graphics in Exile II? I wanted to make a party with three characters, but then a fourth PC as a pack mule when I got this idea to actually make a horse. (Sort of.) My idea was to paste the horse graphic from E3 over another PC's graphic in the PCS.bmp file and use it for a character. However, it didn't load correctly in the game. At the graphic selection screen, everything was misaligned and blue. So did I do something wrong or is this just a fever dream?

Did you make sure to save it as an 8-bit (256-colour) bitmap? I don't think the Exile games are designed to deal with different colour depths.

Yep, that was it. :)

 

There's a white outline around the horse now, but I'm choosing to ignore that.

 

Some of the pixels probably aren't perfectly white. The game treats white, and only white, as a transparent colour for creature and item graphics.
