Character Select Screen Music Mods
« on: July 25, 2018, 12:08am »
 Hey everyone had an amazing idea last night Thanks to Bruce Bixby's request and then while I was working on that it dawned on me what if a cheat would activate character select screen music so if you want to try it out yourself go ahead but first you should back up your original x_common.zsm before you download ONE of these...

UPDATING SOON

[1] Killer instinct Character select theme. (SHORT)
https://mega.nz/#!xY8nnSaK!4PzSR7Chxj6UxbbwQ_xAFgPWPd3tAv8NLWRHm2ev9oo

[2] Megaman x 7 Stage select theme 2. (long with loud audio spike at the end for unknown reasons)
https://mega.nz/#!5A9A2SIQ!3vibOJqf8YIN7ZkhjZdZ4FJriw5yM9eyzoYxw7EvMeM

[3] Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Pause menu theme.
https://mega.nz/#!wYk2VSaK!7m-3-Dy7a2UlF9PsXnyfSoc3G4R8qYMIpM1CiVYJ4WQ

[4] X-Men Vs. Street Fighter Character select theme.
https://mega.nz/#!5JEwXCaL!MkjuQNtlZUt1xjdCnmt9VyNzeJnbJWmSu2Q8oH7LDzo

[5] Soul Calibur 3 Character select theme.
https://mega.nz/#!8IcERI7D!KacHeItFd1gU9nRLE5HNwGgZ6bE45_kWel4xcDdwEq8

[6] Mortal Kombat Deception Character select theme. https://mega.nz/#!JAEgXCJb!Pxm5_QCdfAx4vIHeJk_g-WFOskYn9aLV2PRG5tlgUUE

[7] Final Fantasy Dissidia Preparation for battle theme. (My favorite CSS theme)
https://mega.nz/#!RQsmWQ7A!9X17HULa4gh5wA6Hm16YzkWi0yBEPD7VI3dgEs0XVQ8

[8] Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Your Sunset theme.
https://mega.nz/#!pMtVgKTa!COT_VACqaFh7qFO8oZwQGs6U3kFmWG2-EDIWWusTyVA

[9] Cells From Sin City Soundtrack.
https://mega.nz/#!9RMGAAJI!jDTgM-vYtCrOmrn6lk12BuzPAH5oJXFIed66Rgg7ZHA

then drop it into the Marvel - Ultimate Alliance\sounds\eng\x\_ directory then when in game put any cheat in the character select menu ONCE so the track doesn't play twice over itself at the same time and there ya have it pretty cool right? :D I'm also taking requests if you'd like a certain theme on your CSS

NOTE 1: that this is also combined with Xeno's Capcom SFX Overhaul found here http://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php/topic,10163.msg191438.html#msg191438

NOTE 2: If you use more then one cheat I recommend Downloading this 100% save data to have all outfits unlocked right away
https://mega.nz/#!RY1SQQCJ!R3dazudlnnPo0AnokH96ghhyV_Pe7ianpcqvrdrl2zg

then place it in Documents\Activision\Marvel Ultimate Alliance\Save

And also start a New game on Hard if you want all powers unlocked from the get-go that way you only have to put in the all characters cheat as your one cheat

Hey everyone had an amazing idea last night Thanks to Bruce Bixby's request and then it dawned on me what if a cheat would activate character select screen music and bam SOLVED you can try it out yourself if you like download this https://mega.nz/#!8JdXCKab!BzVOnTQqvYLak8gPlBZ-jLdSxc59buU84TWGd3yZ3dw

I'll be unable to check this out for the time being, but I have a few questions as to how this works:

(1) You said you connected a music track to any cheat code. To test out my mods and boosters, I use three cheat codes - all characters, all outfits, and all powers. So this means that if I use these same cheats, the music track will play over itself three times. Is that correct?
(2) Am I correct to assume that the music track does not play over and over again on a continuous loop?
(3) What track did you use? Presumably the MUA title track, yes?
(4) Will this only work in the CSS? Or can this also work at the in-game hero screen where cheat codes can also be entered?

1 yes

2 yes but I can make a track as long as you want if need be

3 no I actually replaced the sound when ya hear right before hitting start for a cheat since I've only heard it play very few times in the game its the same sound ya hear when there's no one selected and ya try n back out without a team the name was stat_award.wav thought it was menu_error.wav must have mixed something up somewhere

4. and yes it'll work in the hero menu in game but then doesn't stop playing until its either over or ya go to a cutscene or extraction point or simply pause it

it still needs some work of course.

I took a similar approach, but using the team callout instead of a random sound effect.  I made it so when I chose a team of XMEN, instead of the announcer yelling out "X-MEN!", it played the classic children of the atom character select music.   I had a similar problem, however, in that the music would play multiple overlapping instances of it if I chose different XMEN teams, at least until I left the character select menu.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt

I know right as long as you don't trigger an overlap it should be fine haha XD

Well since you've found a guaranteed way to generate music in the team selection menu for MUA1, any chance you could do the team select theme from MUA2 as a request please?

I use three cheat codes - all characters, all outfits, and all powers.

I just use 100% save data and start a new game on hard so all powers and outfits are unlocked then I just put the all characters cheat idk if that'll help ya but its how I get everything unlocked and only put one cheat in
