Yep 53 pictures of faces, i even dont known where in game they all are used.

I have completed one person, after tests made some changesm when original person move head left to righ when say no, am put there faces which move mouth, so it look like she talk when say something like: i cant learn that etc.

BTW i wish to see these actors who used faces for M&M6, are they somewhere in credits?

That would be fun to see them, am almost sure it was peoples because gfx are too realistic to be drawn.

Early relase of M&M have different faces, am also very courious about (with some luck i could animate them, must find that old screen which shown them)

I remember long time ago that somebody have clue for what all faced is in game (it was probably in topic of Vladimir Maestro Mod, which also changed faces)

BTW have completed second set of faces with paperdoll

Hah! This wil be fun! Am found that screen and succesfully made reconstruction of one face, with few frames of animation. This is bit more challenging, but with some patience i should be able to make full set of animations, they will be back to game!

I'm hoping that because MM6 has long since been released, someone may have a beta and is willing to release it. Though this is the ideal situation and chances are, the betas might be erased ;|

More realistic? What is wrong with them? They look like vampires (and like Nosferatu from old films), not like glittering fairies. :P
After all, if your skin doesn't see sunlight for a long time, it becomes pale, not pink.

I like this idea. Would be cool to have mm7 portraits for mm8.
