If you want to change the 3D portrait's border, you need to :
- Modify the player_vitals_backdrop.tga picture (found in the latest UI Skin Art pack).
- Create a SkinDefinition.xml file containing :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="player_vitals_backdrop" FileName="player_vitals_backdrop.tga"></Mapping>
- Put both files in a [...]\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\choose_a_name directory.
To simply replace the 3D portrait with a new static picture, do the same but use player_vitals_lowrescover
instead of player_vitals_backdrop
for the picture and in the .xml file. And disable 3D portraits in-game.
In case of a static picture smaller than the default border, you need to edit and define both graphics in the .xml file, to remove the default border that will be visible behind your picture.
NOTE : if you change the graphics sizes it's a little more complicated as you need to change some positions too, but it can be done.
