NWN Custom Icon Issue

Post by Deider » Tue Jun 02, 2020 9:40 pm

I'm having a problem with some custom icons. I am trying to make some new items and when I look at them in the toolset the icon looks fine. But when I examine the same item ingame the custom icon doesn't show up. The icon looks different - my assumption is that the appearance is reverting to one of the game's original icons. I have encountered this with many but not all of the custom icons, in particular 1x1 sized icons. I am only using the CoPaP/Avlis haks. Has anyone else noticed this and if so have you found a way to get the icons to show up ingame?
I like gnomes.

I'm pretty sure this is the reason my 'Rose of O'Ma' looks like a gold bar. And there's a few other icons that don't seem to match what they're supposed to be either. But I was never able to figure out what caused this and I have no idea how to fix it.

this for sure happens to me too and NWN builder mod is the only one I use and CoPap Haks are also the only ones I use... so... I have no idea. It's such a bummer when it happens too.

Good luck! :prost:

Have you checked your override folder to see if you've got an overwriting icon in there?

It’s not supposed to be? I vaguely remember that there are supposed to be files in there. BioWare used the override to “fix” something. I know when I did a reinstall it put files in that directory

Yes, the 1.69 patch added the files listed below to your override folder. Those are the only ones you should have in override, and if you are missing/deleted them, you can find them here:

Contents:

Clarification: it's empty save for those files. I haven't added any other files. :mrgreen:

If it helps I don't think this is a local issue. I have made new items with certain icons and when they went into QA testing the testers also did not see the icons as they appear in the toolset.

Does everybody see this or just you? If the former it could be that the index wrapped on you.

I certainly see it also, for various Avlis items.

Something odd's going on with this, too, I've gotten it in a few cases of items.

You know what a fantastic job Bioware did of future proofing...

How many icons are there? Did you cross some threshold? If the datatype they used can only encode a smaller number like 16384 and you ask for icon #16405 instead of crashing it just might circle back to the beginning of the list and give you icon #21.
