Did anyone else realize that XML2 char sounds worked? Because I sure didn't :P Not until today, at least.

I'm currently working on step 1 for the 4 PSP chars: getting their powerstyle/talent files built (XML2 PC format). I've got Cannonball and Cable's ps files out of the '.fb's, but I can't seem to find the talent files. Are they built into that same '.fb', (in the powerstyles folder) by any chance?

EDIT: Nevermind, I think I found them, in the packages. The PSP version sure has odd formatting (the fbs). I have all 4 powerstyles done and now I am going to start on the talent files. :P

EDIT 2: Yep, they are in the packages. I just finished extracting cannonball's talent file. He seems to have far fewer moves than the other playables. :-X

Yeah cannonball had few moves and one of them is/was bugged and would do mega damage.  Any progress on Cable would be the best!!!

:D He is in his OWN slot. That's right, a 21st slot. I still need to find his effects/animations within the PSP files before I can move on to converting him to MUA. I have talent/ps files for all 4 PSP characters successfully extracted.

Sadly, it appears that much like how MUA has a hard-coded limit of 27, XML2 has a hard-coded limit of 21 :'( So, I replaced Professor X with Cable. The 3 I'm gonna leave out are Charlie, as he is the head NPC (much like Fury in MUA), Dark Phoenix (can you say redundant?) and X-Man (once again, redundant). I'm sure lots of you would rather replace Sabretooth and Pyro with some of the PSP characters, but this is my version.

I still have to find the skeletons and effects files for all four exclusives in the PSP version. :-X

Do we have any idea at all which files control this #?  Sounds like MUA has an updated engine of XML2 (correct me if I'm wrong here), maybe we can compare certain files and find something.

Both Noelemahc and myself have dug through just about every file in "Data" to no avail.
As near as we can tell, it's a value that may be hard coded into the game's executable file (game.exe), though we haven't found it in there yet, either.
We DO know that replacing/editing the mlm_team_back files in ui/menus and ui/models allowed us to get a couple of the PSP slots to work when we couldn't get them to show, but beyond that, nobody knows where to look.
So although its a good idea to compare files between the two games, we dont really know where to look, or what to look for.

A couple of updates. First, I found the effects, and I finished Cable's. Cannonball's are next, followed by X-Man, and thereafter Dark Phoenix. :P

Secondly, I can't get 15001.IGB or 15101.IGB to show up on the drop down character select menu. The dialog heads show up fine, just not the select ones. :-X

Well, it looks like PSP XML2 animations aren't very compatible. I'll have to see if I can place the animations themselves into other animation packs. For now, 10_archangel is my adequate placeholder for Cannonball and 115_cable is my placeholder for Cable. His Bionic Arm, as well as all combos/basic moves, have their animations already built into it! :)

As you can see, Cannonball is gonna need a mesh with his legs counted as a bolton. But I know tommy's swamped, so I won't request one until, at the very earliest, he finishes with Cable.

Iron Man (Unlockable): 100% (Official, slot 15) - already in MUA

I noticed that in the listing above, Iron Man from XML2 is suggested as being 100% converted to MUA.
I had previously gotten a response from a MUA modder that this model of IM (which appears in the display case in MUA 's Stark Tower) is actually built as a display object and is unusable as a new suit for Iron Man. So seeing this here has my hopes up again. Did someone already take the time to convert this suit from XML2? This is the 'Heroes Reborn' armor, and would make an awesome addition to the IM armory of suits in MUA. Can someone clarify this? Is this suit available as a mod?

No, the 100% means he's just included in the game. Bear in mind, our goal is to work over the characters that AREN'T in MUA. As for the armor... I honestly don't remember whether that particular armor was in XML2. If so, then by all means, it can be converted.

EDIT: Yup, there it is. Chalk it up for my weakness in Armor Lore. I'll get it done right about now, a'ight?
