Using custom portraits in multiplayer without EUDs?

I remember playing a map many years ago, called "Snipers: Requiem". It's a typical snipers game, but with a few peculiarities. One of them that stood out to me was the use of a custom portrait in the game. I happened to find a gameplay video of that map that shows it:

First of all, is that a fully custom portrait or just a portrait for one of the units that never made it past the beta stage?
Secondly, this is a multiplayer map that was made more than 8 years ago. Were EUDs with such capabilities a thing back then?
If not, then how could custom portraits be used in multiplayer without EUDs?



None.

It's a built-in unused portrait.

Can't answer the EUD questions.



None.

EUDs were definitely around 8 years ago, but this was probably done with extended portrait IDs and custom unit portraits with EUD conditions.
I have no idea if extended IDs still works in SC:R, but modifying portraits.dat with EUDs should work and is probably a better solution. http://farty1billion.dyndns.org/euddb/?pg=entry&id=635 http://farty1billion.dyndns.org/euddb/?pg=entry&id=636

why are you whispering all the time? talking smack behind people's back? perhaps if you can't say what you want to say in public, you shouldn't say it at all
