Hey Outsider, I hope you're having a nice Memorial Day Weekend!

I hope I'm not bothering you, but I just thought you'd want to know that the link you have to download Captain Planet on mediafire seems like it's not working. Fortunately I already had him downloaded; I was just downloading everything I wanted again in case of any updates or fixes I missed because I was going to try to put together a new 50 character roster now that the Mortal Kombat collection is complete.

Thanks again for all the wonderful things that you do!


I appreciate the kind words. The link to Captain Planet is suffering from that damn "download key" issue that Mediafire occasionally deals with. Usually, that goes away in a couple of days. I've been told that Aurora is having the same issue.

As for creating your Mortal Kombat roster, hold off on that for a little bit. As I am creating something to help all MK fans with that...

The Outsider's Crypt - MK on MUA Content
« Reply #2266 on: May 26, 2020, 01:25am »
MORTAL KOMBAT: ULTIMATE ALLIANCE


Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you can tell that I am a huge fan of Mortal Kombat. I vowed to myself to make sure there would be a full roster of MK warriors before I was done here. (By "full," I mean 36, which was full at the time. I can't do any more of them, sorry.) That said, if you're an MK fan as I am, then you'll enjoy this. It's a separate exe file that leads to a MK-only roster game! It's packed full of good s**t that won't clash with your regular MUA games. It's the next best thing to replaying Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. But obviously it's best you witness it for yourself.


PREREQUISITES:
-Make sure you have the Official Characters Pack (OCP) and the XML2 Characters Pack into your game first.
-The MK mods are not included. You still have to install each of the 36 MK warriors. Mannequins and loading screens however, will now be placed elsewhere.


FEATURES:
-Separate Game.exe for Mortal Kombat. (Don't worry, it's safe to use. No viruses, malware, or anything like that.)
-Features a roster (separate herostat) of all 36 MK warriors, complete with callouts from Shao Kahn and MK announcers, and team bonuses. (Not many team bonuses right now.)
-10 custom team stages (CSS) for Mortal Kombat. (The Pit you see above is one of them.)
-Review screen with loading screens and comic covers now features loading screens of various MK fighters -- both on the roster and not on the roster. (Use the "All Loading Screens" and "All Comic Covers" cheat codes at the review screen.)
-Extraction points, levelup effect, and extraction screens now feature the MK dragon logo.
-Mannequins of all 36 kombatants included for convenience. (Honestly, I would have left them out, but then some of you may have difficulty finding all of the MK mannequins yourself.)
-Bios and story in image form of all 36 MK warriors and alternate kombatants written by me.


NEW FEATURES - 6/19/2020:
-Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sonya, & Johnny Cage have been made as the starting four.
-Saved games for this version will appear elsewhere, so no confusion with other MUA game saves.
-Fixed the Arena and Portal team stages.
-Now compatible with the default 27 game as well.
-Added new team bonuses.


Please view the "(Instructions)" file for instructions. They are easy steps that are so simple, that even a child can do it.

Wow, this is really awesome!!! I canít wait to try it!

Edit: Just looking at the readme after downloading is so exciting!!! I'm so upset with myself that I probably won't get the chance to try it until this coming weekend. @_@

I think this is even cooler and better than MK11's Aftermath DLC!!! (I'm excited for that too, but this is SO epic in comparison; truly fantastic work, Outsider!)

Since I have to wait a few days to try it anyways, I did have just a few questions, if that's okay.

1) I saw in the readme that if you want to alter the roster, you can do so through heros_mk.engb, and that it's compatible with both the 36R and 50R versions of the game. Is it possible to add 14 more beyond the 36 to total for 50 for this, or is it only ever meant to be played with 36 characters? I'd like to play as some Marvel/DC/other heroes as well to help out Raiden and the others!

2) If it -is- possible to use 50 characters with this, do all 36 MK characters need to be playable/in heros_mk.engb for this to work, or will it still work if you just have all the MK character mods installed? If not, it's all right -- I'm just wondering in case I end up wanting to add more than 14 non-MK mods to this (which I'm still not sure about yet).

I knew you'd be excited for this. As for your questions...

(1) Yes, you can add 14 non-MK mods there if you wish to -- such as the guest characters that appeared in MK. Just be mindful that whoever you put in will not have menu callouts, and you have to put their mannequins inside the "ui/models/mkwarrior" folder.

(2) All 36 MK warriors' herostat entries are in "heros_mk" already by default, and it's best to leave them in there, as it was designed with the MK warriors in mind. Whoever you add has to be placed in that file and take the other 14 spots.

Now unless more cool stuff for Mortal Kombat appear, I'll come back to Marvel for the time being.

I have to take a look at some stuff sent to me by various members here for possible updates. Be on the lookout for these changes if/when they are implemented.

Also, it is with a heavy heart that I inform you all that my own creations, the Phantom Four won't be coming to MUA. This is mostly due to a legal reason, and as excited as I was for you all to witness the sons of darkness in a more visual way, I have to protect my intellectual properties. I can't take chances on something like that. My apologies to everyone who really wanted to see them created.

As for what my next mod project will be after the updates... not sure yet. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Stay tuned... :king:

You should! Even if you're not an MK fan, having this won't affect your MUA game, its herostat, or any other mods you installed.


Awesome! Thank you so much for this, Outsider!

No problem. Enjoy.

Iím sad to hear the Phantom Four wonít be available in MUA, but I can understand and respect your reasons for this. I hope your future endeavors with them go very well :)

Either way Iím excited for more of your mods!

Everyone, the following mods & boosters have been updated:
Angela (from Last Call), Beast, Clea, Dagger, Lara Croft, Sharon Rogers, and all four of the Spider-Girls -- Silk, Spider-Gwen, Mary Jane, Spider-Girl.

It's too much to write here what was changed and added, but they were mentioned at their individual posts. I've been hard at work making all these updates happen, and it certainly wasn't easy finding the time to do them. Download them whenever you can.

I'm not going to start my next mod project yet, as I am uncertain who I should work on next. So for now, I'm going to try more skin conversions in the hopes that I can get better at it. I only did one thus far -- the MK11 Harley Quinn costume for Cassie Cage. Like everything else in life, the more you do it, the easier it gets. Stay tuned... :king:

I love your stage backgrounds. I have some favourites among them. I didn't like the stage before (though I believe it's the only one for the 50RH), mainly because of the floating platforms and it feels so "empty". Some backgrounds change that feeling a bit.

Now I (and I bet you too) only wished that someone figures out how to mod the game to start a themed game, like that X-Men executable with a separate X-Men herostat. Maybe we can change the name of the stage files in the same way we can change the name of the herostat?

Just so everyone knows, in addition to Team Stage Collection 2 being released, Team Stage Collection 1 has been updated, as I have redone some of them -- such as Act 3, Matrix, Moon, and others. Don't forget to update them: https://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php/topic,8753.msg198742.html#msg198742

Also, Kamala Khan has been updated with Anderson's newest Ms. Marvel skins. Another update for her may come in the future.

Won't be doing any mods for awhile, as I am still seeing what I can do on the skinning front. Finding time to do so is the hardest part. Stay tuned.

Good to hear you're enjoying the team stages. Thanks for the feedback.

As for a themed game exe & herostat, I actually do know how to do that -- that's what I did with the Mortal Kombat roster. (https://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php/topic,8753.msg198877.html#msg198877). It even eliminates them clashing with any other mods, including their mannequins. It was easier to do that for MK because I did the vast majority of the mods there. X-Men would be harder, as you can easily fill 50 spots, but not everyone has the same X-Men nor their herostats. Perhaps one day, I can create the executable, but then everyone would have to create their own herostats.

You can easily create a themed roster by following the above tutorial

Yes, I am familiar with that tutorial (altough I forgot about the "Extra Stuff" section). I was thinking that you can find a "m_team_stage" string in the exe and rename it to "m_xmen_stage" for example and use the new x-men stage with with it, so you have the stage automatically going with your themed roster.
In fact, I've just tested that and it worked! Needs the Roster Hack to be installed though (means it only works with the new stages and not with the original or other stages at the same time). Altough you probably could also hex-edit the exe and change "team_back" and "mlm_team_back" entries to something like "50rh_back".
I have very limited data and am not interrested enough in Mortal Kombat to have it downloaded and checked how it was made with this conversion mod.

I'm suggesting an update in the "Extra Stuff" section of the tutorial then...

EDIT: I did some testing with "team_back" and "mlm_team_back" and I couldn't find a solution. Basically too many dependencies and they're not in the executable. So this method with the custom stages works only with the 36R or 50R Roster Hack installed.
