About this mod

**IMPORTANT INFO FOR 1.4 IN DESC!** Ever wished everyone's favorite shadow monster had more than just the one slightly startled expression? Yeah, me too! So I gave him some. This mod adds 5 new, unique portraits for Krobus (happy, sad, unique, love and angry) and patches them into existing dialogues, including his event with the Dwarf!

Permissions and credits
Edit as of 1.4 release:

This mod should theoretically still work with 1.4 since it patches game files. However, it won't be updated yet and I recommend disabling it in 1.4! Users of this mod should be very happy with some of the updates. More info under a spoiler cut! Don't click through if you don't want spoilers for the update.


To install, make sure you have SMAPI and Content Patcher, then unzip into your Mods folder.

There aren't a lot of existing mods that give Krobus the love he deserves! This simple content pack introduces 5 new portraits, the same amount as a love interest would have (so hopefully, he's compatible with any future marriage mods!). He now has:
  • a happy portrait
  • a sad portrait
  • a "unique" portrait, which he'll show in his Friday "..." dialogue! Since Fridays are a religious day for him, I gave him a meditative expression and a necklace with a symbol of Yoba.
  • a "love" portrait (blushy!)
  • an angry portrait
Update 1.2.0 includes compatibility for two more mods, as well as all current ingame languages!
This mod will now add portraits for new dialogues from Canon-Friendly Dialogue Expansion, give Krobus portraits in Ran's version of the sewer event, and add portraits for all of Krobus's dialogue in all official translations of the game.
  • With the creators' permission, I've copied over Canon Friendly Dialogue's new lines for Krobus and given them portrait commands, so the new portraits will now show if you use the mod! Check the readme for more detailed instructions. These lines will only appear if you already have that mod installed and follow the instructions to make it compatible; if you don't, you'll see only the vanilla dialogue (still with portraits!).
  • With Ran's permission, I've made a version of the Harvest Goddess sewer event with both the HG changes and my portraits. Check the readme for instructions on how to make this work. It will only happen if you have Harvest Goddess installed and follow the instructions to make it compatible, otherwise you'll see the vanilla sewer event with portraits.
  • If you don't play the game in English, you can still use these portraits! This version includes all of Krobus's translated dialogue with portrait commands.
  • If you want to configure dialogue lines yourself, the file currently patches all of Krobus's vanilla lines, even the ones I didn't add portrait commands to.

Using these assets
All portraits are my own edits of game files! If you're interested in incorporating them into a mod, I'd love to see it and help out. You're free to use or edit them however you'd like as long as you give credit.

All dialogue is either from vanilla or Canon-Friendly Dialogue Expansion, used with permission.
Wizard's dialogue and animation edits to the sewer event are from Ran's Harvest Goddess, used with permission.

Adding portrait commands
The wiki has documentation here on how portrait commands work if you'd like to change around any of Krobus's portraits in other dialogues! There are also detailed instructions in the readme.

Future updates
-I couldn't manage to change the default strings for gift portraits (however, because he now has more portraits, the game defaults him to happy/neutral/sad the same way it does for other characters). If I can make it work, I'd love to make his "love" portrait show up for loved gifts.
-If you have requests for more portraits to go with other mods or for your own use, just ask! He's very fun to work with so I'm happy to make more edits for him.
-Feel free to ask about compatibility with any other dialogue mods, and I can reach out to their authors! **EDIT 1.4**: I'll be waiting at least a week for dialogue mod authors to be freed from update-induced panic attacks. After the modding community collectively takes a breather, feel free to reach out about your favorite updated dialogue mods and I'll look into compatibility with any new versions of this.
-I have no plans to make an XNB version of the mod. You are welcome to use the assets to create XNB files yourself, but XNB mods overwrite game files and are disastrous when updates like this one come around.
