Hi, there you've two Custom Faces Templates for create you're own
or to check how i did it and then do it yourself too. I made 'em
using the Photoshop CS II 9.0.2 but i belive that they work with
the Photoshop 6.0.

This is a great idea. Use http://imageshack.us/ for a host, it's easy, no need to register and free. Be sure as to use the "thumbnail 1" option after you upload it so as not to incure the wrath of the admins.

Here is my submission. Going back to my Ghost Recon Days.

i like the idea guys Posted Image but would it be easier to just put all the faces into an addon as a facepack and have these faces selectable form the main menu (profile\edit) ?

i have done this with the custom faces i've got, that way if you felt the urge to you could then apply the faces to AI units (as many as u want) at the same time as using your own. I haven't seen any facepacks for ArmA yet and there were quite a few for good old OFP quite early on.

There is an folder in your "My Documents" where you can put your custom face in your profile folder. I have altered the location of that folder to be in the root folder of ArmA with the -profile switch. So now my ArmA shortcut looks like this:
<table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">H:\Games\ArmedAssault\ARMA.EXE -nosplash -profiles=H:\Games\ArmedAssault\Users[/QUOTE]
and my face location is:
[quote name='[b']Quote[/b] ]H:\Games\ArmedAssault\Users\Sniperwolf572\face.jpg[/QUOTE]

Hope it helps.

Would anyone know why when I create a custom face it’s pale?
I’ve used the default face as a base so the skin colour is the same.

You have an ATI graphics card, right? That's a known bug. Posted Image

convert it too .paa and put it back into the folder where the face.jpg should be. The .paa should be called face.paa.

This way worked for me.

This works (as far as I can tell) but the file size increases using TexView.

84.0 KB = 684 KB

Is there any other program (besides PAATool) which converts jpg to paa? Posted Image

Is it possible to use a custom face in the demo version as i've placed my face.jpg in My documents/ArmA Demo, the custom face option is present, and i can see it fine, but when i enter a MP session my face and arms are white. I just wanted to be able to create my user face before i get the full game in february.

It's because the image is over 100kb. Posted Image

Hi, this an example of one of those faces that aren't included into
the .rar file that can be found there; keep in mind that it isn't that
noticeable the face tattos when you're a GI (aka General Infantry)
but i hope that you like it anyways.

Hi, to use the custom faces Black Dragon, just rename the face that you like to: "face.jpg". Now copy it to your: "C:\Documents and Settings\"USER"\My documents\ArmA Other Profiles\"Player Name". Folder; if you have various profiles... just copy it inside each one.
About the Bruce Willys face... sorry, i fear that the ArmA face texture is too big as for transform the OFP face versions that we had. So sorry, but i don't gonna do it, but sure that some other much better texturer than me will do; just be patient... it'll get some day. Let's C ya
