How to equip the The Flamethrower and Backpack at all times:

The flamethrower gun and backpack only appears when initiating the Temperature Gun ability, and disappears after the move ends. However, I added a neat gimmick that allows you to equip these weapons at all times for aesthetic purposes (because, you know, Flamethrowers are awesome. lol).

To equip:
Simply perform the Temperature Gun ability. As he begins crouching, make sure you're not holding any buttons (like the R button), and quickly press the Jump button (In gamecube, it's the Y button). You'll hear the sound of equipping an item. His gun will be replaced with the Flamethrower and he will also put on the backpack. For the two power glove skins, He only equips the backpack since he's already equipped with power gloves.

To remove:
Perform the same method as above, but instead, press the Use Button command (in Gamecube, it's the X button) You'll hear the dropping equipment sound, and his aesthetics will revert to default.

The backpack will disappear when performing these methods:
1) Pause the game and enter the Team Management menu
2) Enter a different map
3) Enter Xtraction Points

When it disappears, you can just re-equip them when performing this ability. The flamethrower will sometimes remain since it's coded to replace the current gun he's holding.

- Raven Software: Original XML1/XML2/MUA Assets
- BaconWizard17: For assisting me on how to make my own Power Icons, Conversation Portrait, and Character Selection Portrait.

What's Left To Do:
- Any future updates will just be fixing bugs, adjusting balances, arranging on his .fb packages, or adding updated animation (when animation mixing becomes possible for older Raven games).

Notes:
- Feel free to make custom skins for this hero. I won't take any credit for your creativity but would enjoy playing as other member's custom skins for him!
- This hero is free to use as a base if you plan to make your own mod using his assets to start off from. Just make sure you don't keep too much of his default assets and make his play style is as different as possible. Also be sure to credit me if you plan on doing so.

Avalanche (By nodoubt_jr)



Updated as of 10/1/2020

This is a direct port of nodoubt_jr's Avalanche. An old, legacy, mod from the PC version with his necessary files, packaged into an .fb for him to be fully playable for Game Cube purposes. This post mainly contains previews on his skinset and other miscellaneous for him to work for the game. Selection of Avalanche's skins may differ from his PC mod, but his play style remains the same.

For more information about his powers and other things, be sure to check out the original mod on nodoubt_jr's thread about Avalanche.

This character requires the X-Men Legends II - Version 2.0 Patch to be installed to avoid any missing texture effects for his powers.




Prelate Zealot voice patch for Avalanche.




Skin Set:

Spoiler

Click on image to enlarge






Notes:

Spoiler

- Now uses PS2 models (for his default and Astral version) in his skinset for better texture quality. Freedom Force skin was removed due to memory issues (it works for a bit but crashes overtime)
- Has power icons and character selection portrait included in his pack
- Uses his XML 1 sound effects for his powers (his ps_powerstyle has his sound directories modified so they can read them off his XML 1 files appropriately)
- Added priority to QUAKE so he can no longer be knocked down while performing his Xtreme.
- Uses a different model for his Rock Slide due to me not knowing how to optimize textures for models yet.
- Only lacks the additional sounds that were modded into his avalan_m in the PC version.
- Shares voices with the Prelate Zealot enemies that appear in Apocalypse's Tower. Below his download card, is a download link to a modified x_voice (done with Hex Editor) that adjusts the Prelate enemy's voice set to suit Avalanche temporary. BE SURE TO BACK UP YOUR CURRENT X_VOICE BEFORE REPLACING it.




Future Updates:

Spoiler

- Inclusion of proper custom voice set and additional sound effects when it becomes possible to modify them.
- Replacing his rock slide model with the actual one when I learn how to optimize model textures.

Nice. I always thought Avalanche should have been a playable Brotherhood member, especially if they're going to take away super popular characters like Mystique and Sabretooth for other things (even though he's playable on PC).

Updated some minor things to my mod packs

X-Men Legends 4 Player Mod:
Change log:
9/13/2019
- Fixed an issue with Jubilee's conversation portrait being a GRSO Soldier's when you talk to her in the X-Mansion after the USS Arbiter mission. This was because I was testing with a character replacing at the time and I forgot to remove it after releasing the mod.
Thanks to Skorzyss letting me know of this.

If you want to just replace the map to fix the tiny issue, in the .zip, the file is Mansion3_1.fb found under maps/Mansion 3

X-Men Legends 2:
Change log:
9/13/2019
- Added Colossus's default skin from X-Men Legends 1 to the Updated pack. Very similar to his default one in X-Men Legends 2, but he doesn't have the sleeves. Also updated his herostat to include it in his selection of costumes.

Sneak Preview of the next playable NPC Hero I'll be working on:


Yup, it's an Acolyte Warrior! With the little animation set the Acolyte Warrior has, I'll be trying my best to base his moves off of all the Acolyte variants from the previous game, as well as their Shocktrooper counterparts in this game

Re: Lags's Gamecube Stuff (9/22/2019): New Hero Update - Acolyte Warrior
« Reply #29 on: September 22, 2019, 09:18am »
More playable generics. Woo!

Acolyte Elite


The loyal follower serving under Magneto is now ready to join the adventure. As mentioned before, his moves heavily references majority of the acolyte variants and the shocktroopers from both games. Unfortunately, his name was too long in the Character Select menu since it goes off the name space by 2 letters, so I had to shortened his name just so it would look nice. There's already an Acolyte Elite existing from XML1 (the smaller variant) but I still went with Elite anyway just to fit his role as a nameless hero than leaving it Acolyte and sounding like a Major character. This brute is ready to wreck his Shocktrooper counter parts for reusing his appearance and fighting under Apocalypse's forces.
Feel the power of the Acolytes!

This mod will be planned for updates in the future with balances and fixes.
- Lags 9/29/2020


Change log: - 10/05/2019

* Shock Blast's p2_power now aligns with p2_impact.
* Can now shoot across boundaries since it could not before.

Notes:

* He uses the fightstyle_wrestling animation set for his _nc.fb.'s. This was so his model will appear when selected in any Change Team menu at an xtraction point so you can browse through his costume set. His actual animation set lacks an Idle so he won't appear when you visit the Team Information menu when away from base.

Costumes:

Previews
01 - Acolyte Warrior
02 - Acolyte Warrior Elite (AoA Boost)
03 - Brotherhood Marauder

Bruising Fist (Melee) - A heavy attack that knocks back enemies.

DEVASTATING SLAM (XTREME) - A powerful version of Power Slam.
