Title: HUD portraits release thread (Now with a new name!)
Post by: Joshco on December 28, 2006, 07:06am
Has anyone had any success at fixing/converting (or creating new) HUD portraits for the PSP characters? Itíd be much nicer to see their smiling faces down there than those boxes...

Thanks!

Post by: Noelemahc on December 28, 2006, 07:17am
Converting? No. Creating? Maybe. I'm still waiting for THX to hold up on his promise to provide PSP materiel like screenshots from which I could extricate januwine PSPer portraits, which could then be packed into the PC-version-compatible IGBs.
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: THX on December 28, 2006, 07:58am
I need to break it out and see what's what.  Is it confirmed that we can't pull the raw images from somewhere on the disc?

I guess taking screenshots would be easier, but by that do you mean pulling out my digicam and snapping a few shots or is there a way to do it all digitally, PC style?
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Noelemahc on December 28, 2006, 08:31am
I suppose there is - Piccolo's doing it somehow, ain't he?

I have the raw images - I just can't decode them into actual pictures. If you take the time to look at my PSP dump, it includes the PSP portrait files... They just don't work very well :D
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: THX on December 28, 2006, 09:22am
Will do it after work today
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Noelemahc on December 28, 2006, 10:24am
Yes please. Even just general directions would help. If I knew what colours they have, it would already be a start -- there's a trick to decoding swizzled images when you know you're on the right track once you fiddle it to the point where the colours start matching the correct set.

Post by: Noelemahc on December 28, 2006, 12:50pm
Okay, thanks a lot :D This should get me going places. If not to find a way to convert the things, then at least to base new portraits on. I think I can make high-res ones from actual comic book art -- after all, Mahr Vell's, Echo's and Yelena's look like they were snagged straight FROM the art, not drawn anew like most of the other characters' portraits.
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Noelemahc on December 29, 2006, 01:22am
Alright, I've found a solution to the Moon Knight problem. The files for his second and third costumes were in the wrong damned format - the rest of the players use DXT1 with no alpha. That's what caused all the errors and corruption.

I'm rebuilding him, and the PSPers, on the base of Daredevil's (because it's the cleanest, prettiest, 256x with properly aligned mipmaps HUD head out there).

Just a final poll... Would you guys rather see genuine, but VERY low-res portraits of the PSP characters from the PSP version... Or high-res lookalike (i.e. similar-looking to ones used on PSP) portraits of the same characters ripped from the comic book art?
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Noelemahc on December 29, 2006, 03:24am
Okay, here's a WiP.
http://h1.ripway.com/ivank/Portraiture1.rar (unpack into HUD folder, back stuff up, if you want to)
This replaces Dead Man Wade as the second Deadpool portrait to the proper Ultimate Wadey Wilson one, made from art of Ultimate Spider-Man #93.
Adds a Yelena Belova portrait (Black Widow's second costume) based on art from Black Widow MAX #01; and a Classic Black Widow portrait (fourth costume) based on art from Uncanny X-Men #268. I know it's low-tek, but it's Jim Lee, for crissakes! -- for Black Widow.
Adds a Ronin (costume 1, New Avengers #11 art) Unmasked Ronin (costume 2, New Avengers #13) and Echo (costume 3, Daredevil v2 #10) portraits for Ronin.

Sample screen (also showcases the fixed Ultimate Moon Knight portrait to be found for d/l in other thread):
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v26/ivan_k/Marvel/MUA/Portraiture1.jpg)
I'm working on procuring sufficiently high-res art to make Ultimate Black Widow and Ultimate Hawkeye from. If you have any, feel free to share them :D

Those look fantastic! If they look that good, I for one have no problem with them being pics straight outta the comics.

If you havenít got any by the time I get home from work I will scan some for you... I can probably find a good classic Hawkeye as well.

Thanks a bunch. I'll see what I can do with that :D

Once I square these off, I'm gonna go lookin' for Mar-Vell's pictures (I've already got sources for Genis (and since the two are interchangeable, it's just a colouring issue) and Ultimate).
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Joshco on December 29, 2006, 04:59pm
Hitch and Neary don't give you much to work with

Yep, that was the pic I was thinking of; it's the best shot of both of them. They do appear on the covers of Ultimates #7 and #9, which I've scanned, along with a regular Hawkeye, a Mar-Vell, and an Iron Fist (in case you felt like making one for Ronin's fourth pic, as I'm using the Iron fist skin for her...  ;) ).

Here's a low res pic of what they look like:

(http://www.joshkern.com/portraits.jpg)

And a link to the high res files: http://www.joshkern.com/new_portraits.rar (http://www.joshkern.com/new_portraits.rar)

Post by: Noelemahc on December 31, 2006, 07:06am
Okay, here's the stuff:
http://h1.ripway.com/ivank/Portraiture-v2.rar

This fixes the mip issue for all the previously upped files, except for 20104 (Black Widow Classic -- I've found a better pic to do it with, so it will be replaced in the next pak); BUT it adds a pic for 20303 (WCA Hawkeye) based on his art from the Marvel Masterpieces series.
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Noelemahc on January 01, 2007, 07:12am
Okay, here's more stuff. Hawkeye Classic, Hawkeye Ultimate and Hawkeye WCA -- plus a re-done Widow Classic, along with fresh Widow Ultimate and Widow Modern portraits.
And a picture showcasing all the stuff done so far:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v26/ivan_k/Marvel/MUA/Portraiture2.jpg)

File will go up later, I'm having troubles with my file host. Damn.

EDIT: It's up.
http://h1.ripway.com/ivank/Portraiturev3.rar

Some of the resulting pics are mirrored from their original appearance in the comics, but that doesn't really detract from the enjoyment you are supposed to get out of them. Nuh-uh.

okay, sorry, dumb question, but how do I install these? :-\
Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Noelemahc on January 01, 2007, 12:06pm
Mine? Just unpack them into your HUD folder in the game's directory. If you have the complete PSP mod (see the Hawkeye how-to threads for instructions on THAT) installed, they should automatically be used by the game. This, of course, excludes the Moon Knight portraits (which require the Moon Knight/Colossus mod to be installed) and the Deadpool one, which works in any case.
It would also be prudent to back up hud_head_1702.igb (the incorrect, but official, Dead Man Wade portrait foolishly used in conjuction with Ultimate Deadpool's outfit) before you do anything.

Only if the contrast of the pictures is okay, which automatically rules out the Black Widow one you suggested (sorry). And I've already got neat Punisher art laid aside for later use, once we get to crossing THAT bridge. Can show it to prove it's good enough :D Same goes for Iron Fist and Vision while we're at it.

The Hawkeye and Mar-Vell ones look slick though. I'm gonna try working with THOSE :D

Here's an update.
Captain Marvel's classic (20203), Iron Fist, and two for the XML2 projekt, featuring Modern Gambit and AoA Cyclops. Yay.
http://h1.ripway.com/ivank/Portraiture4.rar
Of these, only Cyke is based on comic art ("Tales from AoA feat. Factor X"), the other three are from the busts and statues pics on the site Kenn suggested.

Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Noelemahc on January 11, 2007, 05:18am
Marvel.com uses fan-submitted scans. They aren't high-res enough for this, as well as don't have the necessary angles for the portrait thing. I prefer to get scans from online-- or make 'em myself, when I can get my hands on the appropriate source material.

EDIT: Yeah, I checked. I've accidentally DUMPED both red and blue instead of swapping them. Hence the weirdish colouration. Sorry. Gonna rebuild it today, up the fixed one a tad later. 'Kay? Gonna recompensate with pics for more converted XML2 skinnage.

Title: Re: HUD portraits for Hawkeye/PSPers
Post by: Noelemahc on January 13, 2007, 01:30am
Yes, I was. BliZZ converted his skins, ergo, I would HAVE to get pics of him. Don't worry, I plan on doing all of them eventually.

I haven't checked Iron Fist, the Widows, the Ronins, or the other AoAs. But Mar-Vell, both Gambits, all 3 hawkeyes, and the 3 working AoAs in that pic work :P

--wait, wait wait. What're you telling me, that they ALL CTD (could list the ones that don't? because 'old ones' is an innacurate enough description to warrant clarification)? I thought I used the same DDS saving options... Weird.

In other news, I just had lods of fun lifting art from loading screens and concept-art-bonuses of XML1 for the XML1/XML2 characters for portrait use. Including stuff like Dark Avalanche and whatnot -- they're mostly quite usable for that purpose. Which suits me juuuust fine.

Ones that do:

All the usable pictures from the XML2 Concept Art and Loading Screens. 32 total. (the preview is shrunken down, of course, they're ALL 256x images in the pack).
And a bonus :D
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v26/ivan_k/Marvel/MUA/MahrVell.jpg)
Pluskommander Mahr Vell :D He's already labeled correctly for use with the PSP mod, so just dump him into your HUD directory in the game and enjoi. This, just like the official PSP portrait, is based off his loading screen art ('cept that I, unlike them, didn't save the lightening bolts).

Archive: http://h1.ripway.com/ivank/PortraitureXML2art.rar
Not all of these had been tested, but the procedure was identical, so I expect they will all work okay.

Okay, fresh stuff!
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v26/ivan_k/Marvel/MUA/PortraitureExtras.jpg)

Contents: (left to right, top to bottom) XML1 movie Havok; XML1 movie GRSO soldier; XML2 movie Ultimate Storm; XML1 movie Shadow King; XML1 movie Astral Xavier; XML2 movie Mercenary; XML2 movie Ultimate Magneto; XML2 movie Madri (two specimens); XML1 movie General Kincaid; Swordsman for the PSP mod; Super Skrull for the PSP mod; Kree Uniform Marvel for the PSP mod 6 skins extension; Red Genis for the PSP mod; XML2 movie Ultimate Sabretooth.


Archive: http://h1.ripway.com/ivank/PortraiturePSP.rar for the PSPers (which are already pre-labeled for comfortable use in the game; this expects that when (if) a Kree Uniform skin is made, it will be #6)
and http://h1.ripway.com/ivank/PortraitureMovies.rar for the movie models.

I've discovered one can play back XML1 movies when transplanted into XML2, so I ran through all of those and snapped away with HyperSnap! The only sad thing is that while XML1 Emma, Armored Shadow King and Gladiator Xavier all appear in the movies, there are no decent angles at which they can be snagged. *cries*
The fidelity on some of the movie models sucks, I know, but it's either blurry beyond comprehension or this. Take what you are offered, and all that jazz, y'know?

Swordsman came from the cover of Thunderbolts #110. Kl'rt came from the cover of Annihilation: Super Skrull #3. Kree Uniform Marvel came from Wikipedia entry on Genis. Red Genis came from web version of New Thunderbolts #1 available on MARVEL.com.

Both Mr F's and Thing's are wrong. Mr F's is more subtle (the 4 symbol's coloring is off), while Thing's is a clearly misplaced one :P

Noel, Ult Deadpool wasn't the only one who had an entirely wrong hud_head:

Yeah, another issue with Thing's portraits is that his "modern" hud pic is wrong. It is right now used by the "ultimate" variant. And I believe two of the hud pics of Cap America got switched. His "ultimate" pic has small wings on the side on the head, so I guess it actually belongs to the "classic" version. Vice versa is the "classic" hud actually the "ultimate" one.

Would you PM this stuff to BliZZ, please? He's currently putting together a semblance of a patch to fix all of such errors in the game and probably could use the help.

I believe Cap's icons are right, but I'll check out Thing's.

Now, onto the beef of the post:

Yes, that IS the hud_head they tried to pass off as Dark Phoenix. And it is long-haired Ult Jean (who I'm not even gonna use, as I feel the short hair version played much more of a role in the comics)

And I'm 99% sure they BOTH have wings, so switching them is useless. Sure, the Ultimate one is far better than the Classic one for the Classic skin, but this by no means fixes Ultimate.

Eh, well, the IMO "classic skin" above doesn't look as "classic." The "wings" are less pronounced, and it's more scaly, which, though old Cap costumes had the scales, I think of the Ultimate Cap as having more pronounced scales.

MUASkinner's the way to go. Make a 256x 32-bit BMP with the new portrait, import it with MUASkinner - the default CFG already includes the offsets for hud_head_0201.igb, use that and just rename the 'filled' files to whatever character you inserted :D

You are right, both have wings. I see it in the direct comparison. But I still think that the current "classic" one is more fitting for the ultimate costume. I can't put my finger on it, but it looks more modern. Besides, the pissed off face of Cap also fits his ultimate version better  ;-)

This is because the NPC is defined in the same way as the PC HAS to be defined in order for it to work on the comp00ter version of the game. Sucky, huh?
The same shtick happens if you try to mod PC Fury :P

The only solution is to rename the NPC versions to something else (requires recompiling the NPCSTAT as well as rebuilding their packages) to separate the two sets of entries. Not too comfy, but it IS the only way.

Post by: BliZZ on April 11, 2007, 09:42am
Na, cause the dialogue still references the base char name for it's icon (I figgured this out when I moved Beast to BeastSimple). You gotta change NPCstat AND the individual dialogues. AKA not worth it.

Feh. Could they have made this even MORE overengineered?
Did they not think of us poor underpaid modders or they honestly didn't think one of them would have to rebuild this one day?

Does anyone know which file names represent the 2 Captain America huds pictured above?  I am interested in switching them around to give the Ultimate Captain America the 2nd Hud image.
Title: Re: HUD portraits release thread (Now with a new name!)
Post by: Cates on May 01, 2007, 06:35pm
Huds always jive with the skin number. So, Cap's number is "07". Skin 1--his ultimate skin--then is 0701. So the hud that goes with that is hud_head_0701. The classic is 0702. Just rename 'em.

hi!

I'm working on them, but I cannot do the same export/import process as I did with skins with TextureFinder and skinner ui. What happens is that the hud file contains very few info and the TextureFinder does not seem to be able to give me the appropiate Offset value.

Does anyone have offset values for a certain hud file? or knows how to edit a hud?

I am trying to put these into Deadpool's huds place.

Any help is welcome.  :ugh:

Post by: Cates on May 07, 2007, 04:35pm
Parrastaka -

Thanks for taking a shot at this!

This thread should answer your questions. Noelemahc's tutorials is great. The offsets for hud_head_0201 are included, so just use those, import your bitmap, then resave. That's the simplified version. Consult the thread for more questions.

I AM THE HAPPIEST MAN ALIVE.

Pyro may have caught the legacy virus, but he has been cured of blank HUD disease. I have FINALLY, after crash after failed attempt after crash again after banging my head against the wall, created a HUD.

(http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/2708/pyrohudei8.png)

Not the sexiest HUD around, but that cannot curb my euphoria. More to come.

BTW, did anyone download the Pyro Gladiator HUD that Noel made? I didn't get it before he took the file down. If ya got it on your hard drive, please send it over and I'll include both HUDs in an updated version of the Pyro conversion mod. WOO!

Here (http://www.momoshare.com/file.php?file=619eee6de0bfe675c638d6715a39609d)'s a new HUD for Sue.  It's for her ... "classic?" outfit.  I reskinned her fourth outfit, and did a new HUD for it.  It was based off one I seen her wear only a couple times as seen here (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v239/BurningRage02004/Invisible_Woman.jpg), but I thought was far better than the crap she had now.  Here's what the HUD looks like:

I went a little crazy once I finally got the skinner working. Here are 31 new HUDs. I tried to focus mostly on character I had skins for but no HUDs. A few don't have skins yet, but perhaps these huds will inspire the skinners.  :naughty:



It includes:
Avalanche, Beast (Astonishing), Blob (XML1 and Brotherhood), Cyclops (Astonishing), Dark Phoenix, Gambit (Death), Guardian, Holocaust (AoA, Damaged, Modern), Iron Man (Gold), Juggernaut (Classic and Ultimate), Mystique (AoA and Black), Nightcrawler (Astonishing, Classic, Ultimate), Psylocke (Modern, AoA), Pyro (AoA, Classic, Freedom Force, Modern, Original), Sunfire (AoA, Classic, Famine), Toxin, Xorn.

Download it here.
http://www.momoshare.com/file.php?file=8c362c3174d853a7ced59a22a51e5ad0

I am now officially taking requests for HUDs. I'll place priority on those we already have skins for, as a HUD without a corresponding skin is pretty useless.

No, I haven't released it yet.  I want to tweak the bump map a little, and add a touch up here and there.  Although not needed, I'm a perfectionist and like my stuff not to suck.  I'll release it when I get around to touching it up.

EDIT:  On that note, I've also done a lot of skin fixes for the characters who were screwy, like Elektra's skins where the faces were deformed and had black blotches on her classic outfit, and Ms. Marvel's original skin where you had a giant black blob in the middle of her stomach.  I'll upload those when I get Sue's skin up.

OK, I know I've asked for this before, but Pyro's getting closer to being all the way done and the HUD that noelemahc made for the Gladiator skin is higher res and better quality than the game-shot one I worked up. I know it's just a 5/6 skin, but hey, if it's availalbe . . .

Which brings me to my question (again):

Did ANYONE download that big pack o'huds of Noel's before he took it down (a long time ago). This was the only group of HUDs he made I didn't get. It wasn't listed in the HUD release thread, if I remember right. It'd be nice to have the whole pack, but I'll settle for this one for my boy St. John.

EDIT: I found the preview pic Noelemahc posted. It was this pack.
