    IN BRIEF: the name of the portrait is not being loaded/stored properly in the core


    It looks like the name of the portrait is not being loaded/stored properly within the core. The portrait name for this quest is "Blackrock Battle Worg", which is correct in the quest_template table. I confirmed that by running a packet sniffer on a private server where this feature, the displaying of a portrait does work.

    In function:

    void PlayerMenu::SendQuestGiverQuestDetails(Quest const* pQuest, ObjectGuid guid, bool ActivateAccept)

    It takes the details that were previously loaded in from the quest_template table, and sends them to the client, but on outputting these details to the terminal, I found the variables that should contain the name and title of the portrait to be blank.

    Presumably it is failing to load the name and title from the table.

    It's not reading the portrait name and test from the table; those column names are not included in the SELECT statement.

    It looks like all column related to the portrait have not been loaded. This is going to throw up a load of other issues, besides the one logged in this thread.

    That's interesting, necrovoice; there's no portrait panel opening up for that guy in that vid, and it looks like that was made not too long after Cataclysm came out.

    In researching this, I have been on 8 different private servers, and only 2 of them had the portrait popping out.

    I have actually figured out why the portrait is not showing; it's because the packet that is sent to the client is not correctly made up. I managed to get the portrait panel to show:


    I need to do further testing to make sure all data is sent correctly, plus do as Rochet said in order to get the image to show.

    That being said, it might not be required for this quest in Cataclysm, judging by the vid linked by necrovoice.
