This now includes all updates for the Brotherhood Edition, making it Version 1.2:
(read more about these below)

You're welcome ;)

A package mod that adds new character mods and allows you to play with an all Brotherhood team. This package allows you to play with these new characters without replacing or altering your regular game.  Everything is already done for you, so all you have to do is play :)

The point is to be able to run XML2 regularly, but run the Brotherhood Edition on its own.

The New Roster is:
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y170/nodoubt_jr/XMenLegends0139-3.jpg)

To play, all you have to do is unpack the package and drag and drop all the files to Program Files/Activision/X-Men Legends 2/ (the files are setup exactly as XML2 sets it up, so you could even unpack the files directly in the XML2 folders). To launch the new game, double-click on Brotherhood.exe located in Program Files/Activision/X-Men Legends 2/.

This package mod and the files in it do not replace anything in the regular game, the package includes its own .exe (Brotherhood.exe) that runs its own herostats (herosbro.engb), its own team bonus (team_bonub.engb), and Danger Room file (dangerroob.engb).  The new exe also creates its own Save game folder, so that this editions Saves don't interfere with the regular game's save files, new save files located in My Documents/Activision/BrotherhoodMu 2/Save.  The new .exe is also a cracked .exe so you do not need the disc to run the game.

The only thing that will be replaced is the character heads package, but don't worry it has every character in this edition and every XML2 mod released so far. Also replaced will be the main dangeroom icons, the ones included in this pack add icons for new mods and some npc that are not in the original file.  So don't worry, but still back up anything important, I'm not responsible if you lose or overwrite something.  But these files are needed for the new edition to run correctly, so please just replace the files after backing-up the originals.

To have the new characters menu call outs and voices download the updated x_voice located here: http://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php?topic=2924.0, without this file characters like Avalanche and Marrow will not have any voice or menu call outs.

New characters are unlocked right from the start through script.

You must have everything in the pack in your game for the whole thing to work properly, don't forget anything.  Just add everything. But don't forget to backup anything that you don't want replaced.

Bonus stuff:
- Adds official skins to characters already in game (like Deapool's MUA skin and Rogue's XML1 skin), as well as custom skins (for example Magneto's Classic skin and Pyro's Freedom Force skin) and hidden gems (Toad and Juggernaut's Gladiator skins)
- Adds missing effects file for Sabretooth (the only playable that did not have their effects)
- Adds official hud heads from XML1 to Pyro's Gladiator skin and Toads XML1 skin.
- Load screens for every new character and for two established characters (Pyro and Sabretooth)
- New Danger Room maps from XML1 (Danger Room, NYC Courtyard, Astral Gateway and Space Station) and Danger Room missions for all characters, except Destiny.  Also in the Legends course you now fight Sinister's X-Men and Dark Beast.
- New Team Bonuses like Freedom Force and Ultimate Brotherhood.  Femme Fatale is now "The Sisterhood" and only includes members who were part of a group identifying themselves as a Sisterhood (modern group includes the Goblin Queen and past group included Rogue, Destiny, and Mystique)

Additional Notes:
The package uses the single skeleton version of Mystique and Goblin Queen, if you are currently using the two skeleton/new fightstyle version those files will be replaced by these.

If you are planning on also installing the All X-Men Edition and/or the Marvel Universe Edition, i would suggest first installing both of those and their updates, and then this Edition as this one is the most up to date.

To put out fires use Quicksilver's Whirlwind Spin or Accelerated Clap.

You have to install it to the same folder that your XML2 game is installed to.  Don't worry, it won't conflict with your regular XML2 game.
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: Jacques on May 13, 2009, 06:35pm
Here we go, a little debug here, I'm using a french XML2, so after renaming all the engb to freb, I found several issues below:

     :pyro: Pyro has only 2 skins, not even including the one in the screen capture above
      :blob: Blob's footprint effect is now actually explosion, right under his feet, for every step he makes...
      :deadpool: Deadpool doesn't appear, Instead a ??? showed up in the list
      :mystique: She and Forge also don't appear to be having the skin showed up in the screen capture

That's all for now, continue testing with all admiration for this brilliant bundle ;-)
Really good bundle indeed!! :elektra:

Post by: nodoubt_jr on May 13, 2009, 06:48pm
are you done playing through the game? because this edition unlocks stuff like the regular game.  so as you go a long more and more customes are unlocked (so maybe you havent unlocked all of Pyro's and other character skins), and Deadpool is locked until you beat the game (unlocking just like he does in the regular game).  Blob's footprint effect is a small cloud of dust, is this what you see or a real explosion?
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: Jacques on May 13, 2009, 08:23pm
Oh, sorry, I thought it was the same like the ALL XMEN version, everything was unlocked from game start... My apologise. For Blob, what I see is like the lower right screen of the second picture in your first post, that doesn't looked like a cloud of dust at all..;

Great mod. I've been waiting for this cause I can't seem to get the single characters to work in my game, no matter what I try. But one question: Goblin Queen started with no powers, is she suppose to?
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: nodoubt_jr on May 21, 2009, 05:48pm
thanks, theres a mistake in her herostat entry, the entry has the first point going to "gob_telek" and it should be "gob_tele".  So what you can do is either edit the "herosbro.engb" file and change this or play until she gets a point you can use.  If i ever do an update i'll fix this.

(i think this had already been asked in this thread, but the posts dissapeared when the site was down.)

Excellent mod, Blob is a complete BEAST what with just his Butt Slam & Belly Flop being able to clear out entire rooms by themselves..not to mention he is very fun to play. Kudos on this nodoubt_jr :)

This "mod" sounds so awesome.  I really like the fact that you don't have to replace or edit any files whatsoever!  It makes me to want to start playing XML2 again.  Thanks for the release and especially how you designed it.

Thank you guys for the great comments, i love Blob too :)

I reinstalled XML II JUST for this mod, and am very satisfied with this and the All X-Men mod. I'm playing through this by myself and All X-Men with my girlfriend. :) Good job Nodoubt!

Post by: Pooltastic on June 09, 2010, 02:16am
speaking of both editions
is there any way i could make a team that has say... marrow, stephord cuckoo, psylocke and say angel with these?
you know what i mean?
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: nodoubt_jr on June 09, 2010, 03:49pm
Yeah you can do that you would just have to edit the herosbro.engb (herostat for Brotherhood Edition) file and maybe new_gamb.py (new_game.py for Brotherhood Edition) to unlock them if they are not unlocked from the beginning.

alright!
wait.
wait wait wait wait...

do I have to do the whole decompile-recompile cycle for the herostat?
And how do i even edit the py file?
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: nodoubt_jr on June 09, 2010, 05:34pm
Yes and .py files can easily be edited with notepad or any other simple program like that.

Hi
I have a question about switching out a character. Would it be possible to add X-23 in place of marrow, but still be able to use marrow's danger room mission?

Would editing the dangeroob.engb file to change the character challenge name to X-23 be enough, or is there more to it?
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: nodoubt_jr on September 14, 2010, 06:32pm
Yeah if you replace Marrow with X-23 and want to use her danger room mission than you need to edit dangeroob.engb and change "hero = Marrow_hero ;" to "hero = X23 ;"

Post by: Sabra on September 26, 2010, 10:15am
I have a quick question... Can I have the all mutants one, and this one at the same time?

Like, can I have a all mutants saved game, and just start a new game with brotherhood... and switch between saved games, and have both editions? lol

Sorry if my question is so newbish.. but I'm having a little trouble with all this modding... xD


Thanks in advance!
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: edward on September 26, 2010, 10:23am
They all have different .exe launchers and different save folders. So you could have all four brother, x-men, mua, and yours and none of them conflict with any.
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: nodoubt_jr on September 26, 2010, 02:09pm
Exactly what Edward said. The only issue is that some Editions have more up to date stuff, so this is my recommended install order for these editions

1) Marvel Universe Edition
2) All X-Men Edition
3) All X-Men Edition Update
4) Marvel Universe Edition Update
5) Brotherhood Edition
6) Brotherhood Edition Update
7) Individual Mod updates for All X-Men Edition and Marvel Universe Edition

Or right, I forgot to point that out about some being more updated with certain mods. Thank you nodoubt_jr for making this cause is so cool how you could have four different games, I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work on everything you have done.

I just want to be COMPLETLY 110% sure, all I have to do is download it, open it, and play on a new saved game, right? Also what are the team bonuses?
Title: Re: Brotherhood Edition
Post by: nodoubt_jr on April 16, 2012, 07:21pm
Yes, read the instructions, all you have to do is unzip and play.  I don't have a list of the team bonuses, if you open team_bonub.engb you can see them.

Is Mystique really that strong ? When I used her, she was like "invincible". When she is attacked, she will heal immediately. :scratchhead:

Nice work anyway. :D
