Please someone help me. I have the All X-men updated version of X-men legends 2 characters and I still can't add/replace any other character, having reading a lot of tutorials. The problem is when I try to decompile the herostat.engb and edit, it says that the herostat.xml archive can't be found, so I downloaded the herostat.xml archive from 2shared, and then decompiled and edit but it had MUA characters. I don't know what else to do so please, if anyone could help me, i'd be really apreciated.
pd: Sorry for my bad english

Having a problem with this, I extracted everything to the X-Men Legends 2 folder, but the second I try to use the XMenBundle.exe, it deletes itself and gives me an error message.

Is it possible to, in the way that you made this and the Brotherhood and the Marvel Universe editions, make our own "package mods" for the game? One where we could build the roster we wanted and then give it a separate exe and save files?

I would like to second the above unanswered question, but also ask my own.

I was able to add this mod to my game installation along with the replaced x-voice and have successfully completed the game on Easy mode using Angel as my lead character almost all the time with Beast, Iceman and Cyclops as my helpers. I liked that they were given an Old School bonus due to being the original four X-Men, while Jean Grey is also allowed into this category. I want to thank the modders who created this content very much for making this possible and doing such good work.

I was curious though - is there a step by step process to re-add one of the characters that was deleted and replace one of the new characters back with them? I saw you removed Sunfire, but I wanted to keep him since even though he left the team early on in the comics, he was originally recruited as an X-Man and the game's original version categorizes him as one of them. I was thinking of removing Dark Phoenix since I usually prefer using the regular Jean Grey and don't need two kinds of her at once.

Was Sunfire's data overwritten by a custom character or is all I have to do is copy his herostat file from an unmodded copy of the herostat document, decompile herostat, paste his herostat back in and recompile herostat?

You can find the thread where this was answered here. Usually you should ask these questions in the Technical Problems and look for answers there before posting please.

Replacing characters in the All X-Men Edition is exactly the same as doing so in the regular game. Think of this as a clone of the original game. It functions in the exact same way, it just has a different name for things such as its herostat and exe.

Unless you deleted Sunfire's data, it should all be there. I don't believe the All X-Men edition overwrites anything that doesn't pertain to the characters it adds. To get Sunfire back in, all you have to do is decompile heroreal.engb (this version's herostat), take out a character's entry you don't want, and add in Sunfire's herostat entry.

Thank you for everything. I am sure this will help and that I should be able to figure it out. Now that I have a guide to making my own exe, I'll just keep XmenBundle the way it is so I don't have to start my file over and make my own exe for my custom team that includes Sunfire. At least since XmenBundle already has mostly characters I want to use, I can use it as my starting point instead of the original game installation, saving me time. I'll probably make a version where I replace the later recruits with as many custom made earlier X-Men recruits as I can, then make a separate one featuring all the later recruits.

The thread you linked me to might also solve the main problem I was having with adding Angel to Marvel Ultimate Alliance as my first custom character attempt. He kept showing up as a blank spot and I think it was because I didn't know I needed to edit his menulocation number correctly and Heroselect didn't do it automatically. So I had decided to just download this package mod for X-Men Legends II instead so I could at least play as him somehow.

Your antivirus software could be targeting it. Your software should have a place where you can pick files for it to skip over during active scanning. The same thing happened to me with TextureFiner2.1, and that fixed it

I always got a message saying that the Windows coudn't find the file or maybe i don't have the permissions to run the file. I did everything, reinstalled the game and the files, gave all the permitions, run as administrator, antivirus off, literally everything!

Do you have a cracked exe for your regular game?

Yes and i realized now that the Brotherhood and the MUA edition runs normally, just the XMen Bundle that's getting this error...
