:cable:Enigma and hemlot's Cable Mod v2.1 :cable:

This is a new Cable mod by helmot and I. It contains the following improvements from the original mod by nodoubt_jr:

Sound Changes:
*Now includes his own unused voices by Peter Lurie from the PC version of XML2.
-I fixed issues with some of the audio files popping.
-I expanded his voices using his menu breaks because they were perfect for that.
-He had no level up lines, so I repurposed one of his menu breaks for that. I used the rest for I see you and respaffirm lines.
-His no work lines are now also used for no power lines, as his no work lines are barely used.
*Because he has no official XML2 grunts (they're just Bishop's), he has new grunts taken from other roles played by the same voice actor: Executioner and Dark Elf in MUA1 as well as some characters from Jedi Academy.
*He now has his own unique power sounds and every power has unique sounds, so he no longer shares the sound files for multiple other characters. Because we gave him a whole new set of powers, I couldn't use his PSP power sounds (with one exception) because they didn't really fit these new powers, so I used his Marvel Heroes power sounds instead.
-I also used an unidentified sound from Marvel Heroes for the spinning part of his Psimitar Sweep power.

Power Changes:
*Replaced his previous powers and passives with a whole new set of powers and passives designed by hemlot and myself.
*Now uses Blade's skeleton instead of Bishop's.
*He now starts with 1 point in the first power, just like every other character does.
*He now has Might and Mental Resistance.
*Various other assorted coding fixes.

Visual Changes:
*Includes skins, 3D heads, huds and icons made by BaconWizard17.
*I've AI Upscaled his unused XML2 PC loading screen.
*I redid his character select portrait using the same AI Upscaled version of his loading screen.
*Includes BaconWizard17's remake of his PSP rifle model, which now correctly appears everywhere it's supposed to.
*Includes BaconWizard17's custom Psimitar model, which is used for Cable's new Psimitar Swipe power.
*He no longer shares effects with multiple other characters.
*He now has his own custom unique power effects, made by me, and no longer shares effects with multiple other characters.
-However, I did use the Pouncing Pound effect from Cohollow's Beast mod for the Energy Grenade's trail effect.
*His effects' color scheme is completely different. All his Psychic powers have yellow effects and all his weapon powers have blue effects.
*Psychic Slam's effects are now attached to the hand that slams down instead of to his head.

Misc Changes:
*I have included package files for 9 skins. He only has 8 in this mod, but the option is now available to you.
*I changed his packages to allow for unique conversation huds and 3D heads for every skin. I also made a few small fixes to them.

*Cable X-Force loading screen: a loading screen featuring art by Peter Nguyen.
*Cable Desaturated loading screen: a desaturated version of Cable's XML2 loading screen by ak2ny.
*XML2 PSP XMB title screen: An AI Upscaled version of the PSP XMB title screen, which features Cable. I used the same AI Upscaled version of his XML2 loading screen mentioned above, as well as higher quality company logos to remaster this. There are versions with and without company logos.

-His Mental Mastery passive said it increased Critical chance but actually didn't so I fixed that.
-His talent file now differentiates between Mental damage and Telekinetic damage.
-His Mental Mastery passive now affects attacks that do Telekinetic damage.
-Improved Telekinetic Grid's description.
-Added coding for his resistance to his herostat.
-Fixed some minor typos in his talents file.
-Increased his Mental Resistance to match Emma and Psylocke.

*nodoubt_jr: original Cable mod
*BaconWizard17: new skins, huds, 3D heads, icons, Plasma Rifle weapon model, Psimitar weapon model, ideas
*ak2ny: Cable desaturated loading screen
*Ninja Kyden: troubleshooting
*Cohollow: I used the Pouncing Pound effect from his Beast mod for the Energy Grenade's trail effect.
