Be very afraid.
The file name is the character name, I'm way too lazy to type out THAT many URL tags again.
The snaps feature ALL the variant skins for these characters that are included in the pack, with the exclusion of Ultimate Cyclops (which is a reskin of Dark Cyclops) and Xtreme and Retro Psylocke (which are reskins of Dark Psylocke), neither of which is my work and all of which can be procured elsewhere on this board.
They are all using their native skeletons (except for Angel, who uses Thor's, and Gambit, who uses Moon Knight's) and no HEROSTAT mods (which is why Scarlet Witch has a fire on her head and Nightcrawler has his swords out on every pic, sorry about that). I DID, however, cover more than 60 skins in there in one sitting :D

Enjoi.
(FYI, I am doing this more for the sake of easy reference for future reskinning of existing models into new characters rather than advertising the pack, as you're all already supposed to know it's GRRRRRREAT!)

You forgot Original Jean  ;D

Also, you don't really have to do this, but it would be nice if you also got snaps of both variants for Blob, Mystique, Avalanche, and Madrox (For ease of reference of course ;))

We certainly did Cyc justice in the pack, didn't we? :P

It was also VERRRY convenient that you alphabetized them left to right. Thanks for that.

EDIT: I'll also add a link to Retro Psylocke (crediting darkmyth, of course) to the first post.

I plan on doing this for every model we've ripped, eventually; except for the lowlife beasties, as I covered all of those and therefore they're all already snapped :D

Next step :D
This duplicates some of the skins shown earlier, but it won't hurt. Much. This finalizes the coverage of the pack, the sole exception being the Megasized enemies (Sentinels) and non-human-mapped enemies (Sugarman and all the animals).

Okay, fresh stuff.

This is how the PS2 XML2 skins hold up against the PC ones. Can you guess which is which?

This SO makes me want to re-do the whole megapack it's not even funny.

Aaaaand, sadly enough, the PS2 XML2 models still suffer from the white outline problem. Dazzler is surprisingly present in that version and Sinister is positively gorgeous in high-quality lights.

You know, for all this "OMFG PL4ySt4ti0nz is t3h suk, x-b0kz FTW!11!11", PS2 seems to always have the better textures....  This only serves to reinforce the notion I've always made, Playstation > X-box.

Also, noting the "white line issue", is there a way to instill the pixel cell shading in MUA (weren't the black outlines from the alpha channel anyway?  MUA uses no alpha, so is this the cause of the issues?  The outline is still defined in the model, but it shows up as white instead of black, similar to the white vertical lines I had when reskinning models in DXT3 for MUA...)?  The models will all still look the same (XML2 didn't use true pixel cell shading), just with a black outline.  :runaway:

Is the cape a bolton?  The obvious answer seems to be to bolt another one on, but I'm sure you've already thought of that.

Rage, I'll look into the issue of the cell shading. That MIGHT be a solution.

Teancum, the matter is not about the bolton (which it ain't, it's a skin_segment) - Bishop's guns and several other characters' irreplaceable segments can be removed, but can't be adequately replaced.

Okay, two more pics to make your weeping loud enough so as to be heard in Raven Soft's HQ :P
PS2 and PC. Highest detail and resolution, naturally. This shows how poorly animated Havok's menu stance is (BUT, he DOES have the full in-menu animset of three anims!) and how the double DXT3 compression (first one was the native; second was the one we went through when MUA-ing the XML2 models) kills the texture quality. This is also to show that I am already at work on rebuilding the megapack. My hard drives are bursting at the seams now :D
This is ALSO to show that we've got the mutant bases covered for the DLC, as the PS2 models look pretty damn nice in those advanced lights.

Actually, we've got at least one skin for EACH char, so we have most bases covered.

Havok has a menu stance? Who else, if anyone, has a hidden menu stance? *Prays for Avalanche*

They certainly nerfed Emma's boobs in the PC model, didn't they?

As far as the menu stances go, I can vouche that Shadowcat and Polaris DON'T have them, if that helps.
Some day, someone will best me.  But it won't be today, and it won't be you.

Dazzler does. Nobody else that I know of, though. Sorry.

Have you tried the "Hide Me" cheat in the herostat?

      Multipart {
      health = 0 ;
      hideskin = XXXX_cape_outline ; --change the number accordingly
      }
