50 Roster Hack (v1.5) "The Holy F**kin' Grail"

MARVEL  MODS  PRESENTS:  THE  50  ROSTER  HACK



Oh man... what better present for the Marvel Mods community to give for Christmas than "The Holy Grail" being upgraded?!? Introducing the 50 Roster Hack (50R)! This is a true paradigm shift in the way that MUA will be played from now on.

Remember that time we all thought that having 27 characters was "hard-coded" and could not change? We sure kicked that theory's ass.

Through Nikita488, UltraMegaMagnus and myself, we improved on something that was already a game-changer, showcasing just how talented this community is. Alright, enough of the damn speeches. Go on and check it out, and Happy Holidays!

SPECIAL NOTE: Please note that the 50 Roster Hack is only compatible with the original 2006 port of MUA. It will not work on the "remastered" 2016 Steam version. Unsure which version you got? Check the game folder -- if you see .bin files and the exe file date is 2016, then you've got the "remastered" version that is useless here. Search ebay or Amazon to find and purchase the 2006 original port.






FEATURES UPDATED to 1.5:
-50 heroes are now playable, extending the roster to almost twice the vanilla roster. All can level up and use items with no problems. Saving data is not a problem either, as the game's memory has been increased. (NOTE: All 50 spots must be filled for game saves to work.)
-Can now switch effortlessly between 36R and 50R, just in case you want less characters for a certain roster.
-New awesome-looking character select stage with double platforms.
-Adds an extraction point to first level.
-All characters and extraction points unlocked.
-New pictures for new extraction points, including better pics for Stark Tower and Castle Doom.
-All extraction points can now extract to other locations. (Previously, some SHIELD points couldn't extract elsewhere.) Only the "Command Deck" point cannot be extracted to, but can be extracted from.
-Bobby Drake model at Sanctum Santorum. (View "Iceman Couch" pic. Why would he be in ice form there?)
-Green markers under characters are now gone.
-Hard difficulty unlocked.
-New accurately-sized mannequins of Colossus, Luke Cage, and the Thing.
-Pre-made newbie-friendly herostat with all official characters in alphabetical order.

MINOR GLITCHES:
-Some characters will have all of their outfits locked, including the one they are wearing. Fortunately, the "Unlock All Costumes" cheat code will fix that.
-When not using all official characters, the last two or three characters may not have a blue circle on their first power. The "Unlock All Powers" cheat code will fix that.
-All 50 spots must be filled on a roster. Otherwise, game saves won't work.

HEROSELECT NOTE:
The 50 Roster Hack will not work with Heroselect. However, "Tony Stark" has modified his OpenHeroselect program to support it. You can find it here: https://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php/topic,10597.0.html.





PROJECT CREDITS:
Nikita488: Limit Adjuster plugins, dinput8.dll
UltraMegaMagnus: Team stage makeover, green marker removal, improved mannequins, zoneshot conversion, remastered interface
Outsider: Extraction point alteration, herostat set-up, zoneshot creation, Iceman script change, Doom & Galactus loading screens, pre-made herostat

FEATURE CREDITS:
Andersonbrazil: Help with m_team_stage background
brandonmeek: Extraction point at first level
Krisan Thyme: Character unlock script


Also, thanks to everyone who volunteered to test out the 50R in its early stages, and of course everyone who did research throughout the years to help make this happen.







WARNING:
For all newbies (and I cannot stress this enough), please read the notes before installing this package into your game. It contains a step-by-step manual on how to do it. And if there are any problems or questions, please don't post them here -- they will get deleted. Post at the technical problems section. We don't want a repeat of all of those 36R complaints that really had nothing to do with the 36R. Other things: Do not using third party cheat tools such as unl-muatrn.exe. Also, delete or rename the game save folder, under Documents\Activision\Marvel Ultimate Alliance, and create new "settings.dat" file, as leaving an old "settings.dat" file can cause minor issues.

Pretend heroes are always yelling and acting tough. Real heroes don't need to yell; they speak calmly, and everyone shuts up and listens.

Wow. Thank you all so much, this is the best present I've had in years.
Literally one of my dreams since 2006 come true.
There are not a sufficient number of superlatives to describe this.
Thank you thank you thank you.

Amazing! Hoping in the future that this can also be accomplished for the X-Men Legends games.

dantles1992, I call to your attention to a quote from the first post...


... And if there are any problems or questions, please don't post them here. Post at the technical problems section.

The Technical Problems section is here: https://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php/board,17.0.html. When you post there, explain what you've done in detail and the problem you're having in detail. We'll see if we can help.

I reiterate to everyone -- if you're having problems or have questions, please do not post them here. I don't want anyone thinking that the 50R or 36R doesn't work, when it's been tested by multiple people (myself included) and has been confirmed to work. Not to sound rude, but if it's not working for you, then you've done something incorrectly.

Hey guys, OpenHeroSelect's been updated to work with this 50-character hack! I haven't tested it yet, so consider it something of a beta release. It should work fine though, happy modding! https://marvelmods.com/forum/index.php/topic,10597.0.html

And great work on this hack!

That's some Amazing, Spectacular, Uncanny, Incredible work you've done there guys!

I was wondering - does this memory increase also increase the limit on things like simulator missions (game = 34 if I'm not mistaken) and reviewable loadscreens (game limit = 64)?
