- Why the portrait of Nbiker won't replace with modified Firebat? I tried to replace this portrait few times but it cannot be changed. It's still has this Nbiker portrait instead the modified firebat that I downloaded. Somehow, it didn't managed to fit it. I don't want to replace with a normal firebat portrait because this modified firebat portrait is only for an hero, and it's not a modified unit. Can anyone explain about this problem?

- There is no NAdvisor in the Datedit portrait section. I looked all over the portrait sections but there is no sign of NAdvisor portrait anywhere. All it stick with an regular Marine.

- I tried to create an Valkyrie Hero to replace with Raszagal Crosiar hero unit until I got an erro. I don't want to replace with an normal Valkyrie to transfer into a hero. What should I do, start over?

- Need help for Tblpad for the portraits replacement. I tried to put everything in together to play this Mod Campaign but until I got some frustration with it. I know, it was my first time using it. I can't tell that how you do with this program. Can you help me out with it?

- How to upload a picture from Retrogrp? Ok first of all, I have some difficult for using this tool for the GRP. Second, how can you tell it's corrupted or not corrupted? Can you please answer the question?

- I keep using Scmdraft but until then I got the same error message again. This trigedit is so annoying, and it's keep my project delaying, and it drive me impatient. I cannot used the oldest version, and I guess it cannot be the same. I never used the old one, and the new one is even the worse because of the errors that destroying my maps creation. Can anyone figure out how to prevent this lazy crash? Can Chkdraft work it out? I mean, where the latest version of this tool?

NBiker and NAdvisor are probably empty files that just have placeholder smks in with no framesets, which might explain why you're having difficulty with them. Replace different portraits with a modified Firebat and whatever else you need if you are having difficulties.

Going into DatEdit and changing Raszagal's unit graphic to a Valkyrie is all you should need to do to simulate a hero Valk. What error/issue are you having?

TBLPad doesn't change portraits, so I don't know what you're trying to accomplish.

Use Shadowflare's GRP converter instead of RetroGRP. It's a better tool and Retro is generally buggy. You can also use PyGRP, as it has recently been updated. Look around for those tools - PyGRP is part of the PyMS, which has a thread somewhere on this forum.

I don't use trigedit in SCMDraft, I use the default GUI, but even so nobody would be able to diagnose your issue if you just say 'an error'. What error?

- The error that I had for creating Valkyrie Hero has an error popped out nowhere. When I tried to move this unit, and then the game closed itself.

- SCMdraft error like "Something wrong with your diagnostic files." until it let me close the entire SCMdraft without saving my latest project.

- About those NBiker and NAdvisor portraits. How can I get some frame for that or maybe you can't? Because I look at anyone campaign to replace those portraits. I look at them at Winmpq to how they do. How can you get the frames for those portraits?

Try deleting the backup database. It's somewhere in the menus of SCMD2, an option to delete the backups. Maybe in the profile settings? I can't remember.

Latest stable version of Chkdraft, as stated before, this is the latest version. The file linked to has been updated many times since 2012 but SEN only shows the initial upload date.

I'm not actively developing Chkdraft at this time as I'm doing some rather intensive job training, still, please let me know if there are any specific bugs so I can log and work them out later.

How to replace the Nbiker and Nadvisor portraits? Because other campaign creator already replace them with some sort a type of frames. Pronogo said, they don't have frames. So what kind of techniques that I need to replace?
