Title: E-ZStat 4000!
Post by: BLaw on May 24, 2009, 07:03am
I took the time to download all stage 3 mods in the char catalog and grab the herostat entries! I inserted it in the heroselect files, so you can now choose your downloaded characters and play, without needing to do any fiddling with the herostat! EZ!
Shauny7488 also helped by correcting and adding missing mods.

Requires
- Marvel Ultimate Alliance;
- Official Character Mod Package which includes Heroselect;
- Any Stage 3 (in the character mod catalog) mod you want!

NOTE: Don't select a character if you have not installed it.

You mean like the Iceman, Daredevil and Invisible Woman upgrades? Those need to be installed manually.

An update will follow soon, because I forgot a few, like toad.

hey BLaw, hate to rain on the parade again, but i believe you are missing, Quasar, Punisher, War Machine and Toxin. As well as Toad, which you already know of :)

ok just double checked, youre missing all of the converted XML2 characters, dunno if it was purposefully or not :)
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!
Post by: BLaw on May 28, 2009, 04:14am
Can't be, at least I included Bishop.

The rest I already know of. Will be taken care of either tonight or tomorrow.

Post by: Shauny7488 on May 28, 2009, 10:43pm
Cable is also missing BLaw :)

so far ive tested angel, apoc, the OC mod, and added XML2 mod. They all work fine. (You forgot to include Apoc's cape in the herostat). but for some reason. every time i go to pick Avalanche, HeroSelect freezes. Wondering if it happens to anyone else.

Just put his files back in, and removed and added him from herostat, he seems to work now :)

i can confirm that beast, blob, blink, captain britain and banshee work fine. Added Cable, he works fine

mods are screwing up, im going to have to re-install the last 11 to try to fix the problem :banghead:

thanks to my modok sized brain :P, ive deduced its electro, all the others work fine as far as i can tell
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!
Post by: BLaw on May 29, 2009, 04:56am
Thanks for all the confirmation. It really helps.

Gonna release the updated files later tonight (afternoon here)
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!

Post by: wickedwillow on October 06, 2009, 03:36am
yes I know I am dredging up an old post...but I can't find any other info. I thought the files were included and this was easy....what am I doing wrong? When I open the zip all that is inside is a 2kb Herolist HERO File and a 138kb Herostat CFG File. I put them into the heroselect folder....what now? I started the game and had 3 powerless Cyclops' and a Wolverine....as soon as I got to first save point and tried to change team ...the game crashed.

1. Download all mods you want to install
2. Start the HeroSelect program and create your roster
3. Launch a new game.
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!
Post by: wickedwillow on October 06, 2009, 12:47pm
so I still have to go in and manually install every single character? I am running Vista and can't get XMLB compiler to work. I was looking for a way around that.
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!
Post by: LX - Rampage on October 06, 2009, 12:49pm
Not with every character. If you go to Character Catalog, you can see who are the characters in Stage 3. So, these Characters are already in the file. Just copy and overwrite the files and after that, do what BLaw said in the 2. and 3. point.

I hope you understand what I said.
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!
Post by: BLaw on October 06, 2009, 01:58pm
Indeed, in other words: no need to use the XMLB compiler.
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!
Post by: wickedwillow on October 07, 2009, 09:10pm
Thanks guys it made sense once I did it....it's hard to make something so simple not sound complicated lol....Monkeys can be taught :)

I just need to get the updated herostat for Dazzler ... the old one has star/sais in her hands.... cant decompile the one in the mod and herostat isn't reading  the updated info. Anole wasn't in there either.
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!
Post by: BLaw on October 08, 2009, 01:00am
That's because we updated the files before Anole was released by Dihan XD
Title: Re: Half the game-experience: Up2Date Heroselect files!
Post by: Shauny7488 on October 08, 2009, 07:07am
Actually we updated the files while OC Mod was still in beta lol. Should get around to updating it again

1. Download all mods you want to install
2. Start the HeroSelect program and create your roster
3. Launch a new game.

I did exactly this, and still nothing.

Only the other MUA characters are showing up (i.e. Hawkeye, Captain Marvel, Hulk, etc.) But NONE of the XML characters are showing up in the game. When I use HeroSelect, they all show up there, and I set up the screen exactly as I want it to look. But then get to the first SAP in the game and they aren't there.

ok sorry i asked i won't ask you or anybody on this place for anything again you know you could have been a little more nicer you know.
Title: Re: E-ZStat 4000!
Post by: BLaw on February 13, 2011, 05:55pm
I said please.

The fact that the same question has been triple posted (i count the PM as the third) makes it annoying. The request post was enough but I don't have the time to do it.
Title: Re: E-ZStat 4000!
Post by: dark phoenix 99 on February 13, 2011, 05:59pm

I've been developing on my free time an excel book that automatically creates the team_bonus.xml file once you've selected your team with heroselect. Today I got bored and decided to fix it so it works with this E-ZStat 4000! files. (And only on windows, I'm afraid).

http://www.mediafire.com/?clt7q5bt4pax994

So, just put it in your "heroselect" folder in the main MUA directory, open it and go to the "MAIN" sheet, and double click on the red cell (if you've allowed macros to run: http://tipsforspreadsheets.com/microsoft_excel_2003_security_0001.html).

After a few seconds, you should have a team_bonus.xml file in the "heroselect" folder, that you have to compile into team_bonus.engb with NBA2K's XMLBCUI. Replace the original team_bonus.engb file in your "data" folder.
 
@Shauny7488 and BLaw: please add it to your E-ZStat files if it works ok. Also, in the "teams" sheet I've added a few mods I found that aren't in your original herostat.cfg, highlighted in red.

This program looks really cool.  It may be the same one that I tried to use in the past but couldn't get it working.  (I lost the last one in my hard drive crash.)  I'm going to play around with it again and hope I'm successful this time.  Thanks for posting it again.

EDIT:  I have a couple of questions:

1.  Does my heroselect folder have to be in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance folder (alongside folders like actors, data, etc.)?  [Currently my heroselect folder is on a different drive -- can I keep it that way?].

2.  Is it required to have the exact same characters (no more, no less) installed in the game AND included in my herostat.cfg as are included on the spreadsheet?  If so, does the order matter?
Title: Re: E-ZStat 4000!
Post by: BLaw on March 04, 2011, 06:43pm
You need the OC Pack, and any mods you want. That's it.

As for the update: willing to, but not as much time on my hands at this moment.

2.  Is it required to have the exact same characters (no more, no less) installed in the game AND included in my herostat.cfg as are included on the spreadsheet?  If so, does the order matter?

1. As long as it is in the same folder as herostat.cfg and passvalues.hero it should work.

2. The only restriction is that the names on  EZ TEAM.xls match the names on top of herostat.cfg, and that the characters you've chosen are in both files. For example, in my previous herostat.cfg I had Juggernaut as "juggernaut", while on E-ZStat Juggernaut is under "Juggernaut_hero".
If in your herostat.cfg you have Juggernaut as, let's say, "juggy", you'll have to go to the sheet "teams" in EZ TEAM and change "Juggernaut_hero" to "juggy". (You shouldn't change the list on herostat.cfg, because then you'd have to change herolist.hero too).
My suggestion is to crossreference your herostat.cfg list with this one:

defaultman
hawkeye
blackpanther
blade
captainamerica
daredevil
deadpool
doctorstrange
elektra
colossus
iceman
invisiblewoman

Forgive me of my ignorance, I think I am missing something. The link for the E-Z Stat 4000 appears to be incorrect. I am redirected to a a pre-installed herostat.rar mediashare site. Please let me know if I am doing something incorrectly.
