Before I rifle through the game files in vain, I thought I had better check: Has anyone compiled a list of which PORTRAIT\*.M3D files are used for each unit? I couldn't see anything on the wiki.

Not 100% sure but will investigate further. What I've recently been discussing with fellow modders, is to hopefully amend our Dark Omen to Blender Import/Export tool that successfully loads terrain maps (.m3d) but sadly can't load Dark Omen Portrait Heads (also .m3d), as I'm guessing it just expects a map information etc.. However, Crash's latest tools, can load .m3d heads and maps into his own 3d engine, so shouldn't be too difficult to fix. The original Dark Omen map viewer tool - New Boids also can display heads and maps.

Once we can add heads then I can use the excellent Call of Warhammer Total War 3d models, for their heads and face textures, to match up with the sprites generated from their 3d models. I hit this problem whilst making my Giant sprite, as no other head would do. Ogre was closest I think but jaw bone wasn't big enough!

Well, don't go to too much effort just yet! Rob's .m3d import tool seems to load them just fine, so long as the TEXTURE folder is a subdirectory of the MESHES folder (as it is in the 1pbat/B*_0* folders). Some of the texture names are incorrect/using the wrong format (e.g, 25.m3d expects VC_HEAD.tga as a texture, which doesn't exist, but saving VA_HEAD.bmp as a tga and changing the name gets it loading. You can check which texture is required in the header for the respective .m3d), but most of them seem to import/export without any issue as long as you move the TEXTURE folder. Gunther loads the correct texture without issue:

 

I've been messing around with the orc head mesh, and it seems to load back into DO without issue. Hoping to get a skaven head/texture thrown together, but for now here's a horrible distended Boar Boy!

Thanks to recent mods we can now have additional sprites, banners and shields but could really do with adding custom heads, since we have all the 3D Call of Warhammer models. I have added a new head to the Wh32Edit .xml database and assigned it to an extra slot new sprite and copied the Elf Head.m3d (DarkElfHead.m3d) and assigned it new DarkElfHead.bmp face textures, within Blender and exported back. However, the source code engine needs to be told about the new head, so it can appear in game, as currently no new 3d portrait is displayed. Is it possible to locate the Heads Table and .dll redirect it to a new custom lookup table perhaps?

can you explain it like I'm five?

How would one overwrite Bernhardt's head with a custom one?

Morgan Bernhardt (MB) would probably use the following 3d models and textures ->

2.m3d body MB_BODY.bmp
13.m3d Group01 mb_head.bmp

Using the Call of Warhammer 3D models of say the Giant, I would export the Giant's Head in Blender as 2.m3d and the top half of his body as 13.m3d with its own unique textures saved as MB_BODY.bmp and mb_head.bmp .

Then when Dark Omen calls those models for Morgan it should show a Giant. However, I imagine the hard part will be to find where and how the engine knows to call those models for Morgan Bernhardt. If we can locate that list or table of heads and bodies, then we could possible add to the list rather than overwrite. I am currently learning & searching for "Portraits" functions with IDA.

we can step right to sub_4018A0 by following the cross-ref of the first portrait in the sprite table
Code:
.text:004018A0 Portraits_something proc near           ; CODE XREF: sub_401950+33Ap
.text:004018A0                                         ; sub_401950+4D1p
.text:004018A0
.text:004018A0 arg_0           = dword ptr  8
.text:004018A0
.text:004018A0                 push    esi
.text:004018A1                 mov     esi, [esp+arg_0]
.text:004018A5                 cmp     dword ptr [esi], 0
.text:004018A8                 jnz     short loc_40191C
.text:004018AA                 mov     dword_5014D8, 1
.text:004018B4                 mov     dword_5014DC, 25h
.text:004018BE                 mov     dword_5014E0, 135h
.text:004018C8                 mov     eax, bkgnd_id
.text:004018CD                 mov     dword_5014FC, 0 ; counter
.text:004018D7                 lea     ecx, bkgnd_table[eax*8] ; MB_xx // background table
.text:004018DE                 mov     eax, offset unk_4CFBD0 ; first portrait
.text:004018E3                 mov     bkgnd_entry, ecx
.text:004018E9
.text:004018E9 loop:                                   ; CODE XREF: Portraits_something+74j
.text:004018E9                 mov     ecx, [eax]      ; sprite_slot.ref_count
.text:004018EB                 test    ecx, ecx
.text:004018ED                 jz      short loc_40190C
.text:004018EF                 mov     ecx, [eax+28h]  ; sprite_slot.loaded_index
.text:004018F2                 mov     edx, dword_5014FC
.text:004018F8                 mov     dword_501500[edx*8], ecx ; Loaded_Portrait_Array?
.text:004018FF                 mov     edx, dword_5014FC
.text:00401905                 inc     edx
.text:00401906                 mov     dword_5014FC, edx
.text:0040190C
.text:0040190C loc_40190C:                             ; CODE XREF: Portraits_something+4Dj
.text:0040190C                 add     eax, 2Ch
.text:0040190F                 cmp     eax, offset unk_4D09E8 ; last portrait
.text:00401914                 jb      short loop
.text:00401916                 mov     dword ptr [esi], offset dword_5014D8
.text:0040191C
.text:0040191C loc_40191C:                             ; CODE XREF: Portraits_something+8j
.text:0040191C                 pop     esi
.text:0040191D                 retn
.text:0040191D Portraits_something endp

which probably means the next function that is called ( sub_401E36 ) loads the portraits?

right now, I'm wondering how the hard-coded SpriteTable[slot].loaded_index plays into it.
If I change PT_Bernhardt loaded_index from 0 to 5 ... I get the ogre head (as expected?)


edit: or maybe it would be better to start by placing a hardware breakpoint on PT_Bernhardt -> ref_count and looking around there

the hard-coded sprite_slot.loaded_index appears to be an index into heads.db
offset 0x12 of the HEAD structure in heads.db is (?) the index of the (head?) meshes/%d.m3d file

added 64 new portrait slots
http://bitpatch.com/downloads/do_mod_helper_wip.zip

add new entries to the end of heads.db with a hex-editor
the first new entry (0x3F) == XSLOT 00, etc.

the other offset for the HEAD struct is 0x0D, IIRC

also new:
enabled the "3DDebug" registry options
so Fullscreen, etc can be toggled from the registry

( this update was more or less a code dump )

Many thanks Aqrit, this will be fantastic to finally have new 3D heads and great idea to add the FullScreen Reg Option.

Made progress swapping Morgan's Head and Textures (13.m3d & MB_Head.bmp) to new Dark Elf Head (64.m3d & DE_Head.bmp)


* PortraitsMBtoDE2.jpg (140.51 KB. 613x438 - viewed 303 times.)



* PortriatSwapinHeadsDB2.jpg (86.17 KB. 630x246 - viewed 270 times.)



So will continue trying to add new Head block of data at end of Heads.DB for the new xslot Giant portrait to use.

Eternal thanks again Aqrit, having new 3d heads is going to be amazing. We can now use all the Call of Warhammer (&possibly the Sundering mod) 3d models for new sprites and 3d heads for the meeting/talking cut scenes and in game Portraits.

A real shared dream come true - totally new Warhammer armies on new maps with new campaigns. It's finally here! Massive thanks to you all!

Early test - Giant 3d head converted into Dark Omen - will improve graphics and test new bodies and necks, then post guide
