In the meantime, here's how you do it:
PS: In the future, please don't post messages in ALL CAPS as that is the online equivalent of shouting...
- While in Explorer (or the Finder if you're on the Mac) go into the Library folder where you find the actors dressed as you'd like one of your characters.
- Take any one of the .AZP files in the folder and make a copy of it, giving it the name of your actor.
- Rename it to the ZIP extension.
- Unzip it and open the new folder that's just been created.
- Locate the XFG file in that folder.
- Open it in a text editor (Notepad on Windows, TextEdit on the Mac) and find the line that starts with <base_head> and change the reference to your actor, making sure you include ONLY folder path that is actually under the Library folder AND that you use colons to separate the subfolders NOT backslashes, even if you are on windows.
- Save this XFG File and exit your text editor.
- Select all the unzipped files and RIGHT+CLICK (Control+Click on the Mac) and choose SEND TO -> COMPRESSED (ZIPPED) FOLDER on Windows, or Create Archive (or Compress, or something like that) on the Mac to rezip all the files.
- Rename this newly zipped file to have an AZP extension instead of ZIP, and place it in the appropriate folder.
- Delete all the temporary files you created when you'd unzipped the original file along with the file you'd renamed to .ZIP.
- Launch FrameForge 3D Studio 2.5 and you'll be good to go!

Any idea where it's located?
