What is X-Packer?

X-PacKer is an application which allows you to extract and inject files and textures from wrestler pac files and textures archives from the WWE series of games. It also allow for editing the save files for the xbox 360,ps3 and pc . This allows for modding of the game.

 

Platforms supported: Ps3, xbox 360, ps2, wii, PC.

I will be requiring a minimum $14 donation for X-Packer 2017.

 

Please note the following:

1.The serial key is specific to a single computer. Please send me the serial key from the computer on which you will be doing your mods. 

 

2. If you are planning on formatting your computer or upgrading your operating system, please do that first before installing X-Packer and requesting an activation key. If you have upgraded your pc and have a new serial key, you will need to purchase a new license.

 

3. This license includes all updates to x-packer 2016. 

 

4. I create a new x-packer for each new wwe game and these require separate licenses I.e. X-Packer 2016 for 2k16,  X-Packer 2017 for 2k17 etc. 

 

5. The functionality is cumulative with newer versions meaning that x-packer 2016 will contain all the functionality of xpacker 10, etc.

 

Feature list:

 

Spoiler

X-Packer 2017:

- Support for the new 2k17 pac formats i.e injection extraction, etc


- Support for editing the wrestler info and movesets of the PS3 and Xbox 360 2k17 save files.

 

2017.1

 

- Support for the new 2k17 pac formats i.e injection extraction, etc


- Support for editing the wrestler info and movesets of the PC save files.

 

2017.2

- Update support for editing the wrestler info and movesets of the lastest PC patch save file.
- Fixed the reading of filenames in SHDC archives
 
2017.3

- Changed the way in which the string files are read to accommodate longer filenames
- Added support for the 2k17 Misc.pac file
- Added support for texture archives containing more than 255 files
 
 

 

Please note that there is no arc update functionality for 2k17 on the xbox 360 and ps3 due to the new arc format. This means that for the time being, new wrestlers and attires cannot be added to the game on the xbox 360 and ps3.

Version 2.0. has been released. I haven't requested another donation for any updates in the four years that I have released X-Rey, however this version has taken a significant amount of work to complete coding. To be fair those who have donated after the release date of 11 October 2016 will receive the update at no extra cost.

To be clear, all previous versions of X-Rey work with 2k17 models. You will only need X-Rey v2.0 if you plan on creating facial animations as described in this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMym6NUiBqA

 

I will be requiring a minimum donation of $13 for the program.

 

What does the program do?:

Spoiler

- Opens yobj model files (New format for now. Older format opens but is buggy)

- Previews sub objects of the yobj file

- Applies textures to preview (png, jpg and bmp format only)

- Import edited wavefront object files from 3dsmax (allowing you to change the shape of yobj files)

- Import texture coordinates from wavefront files

- Export to wavefront object format

 

v.1.1

- Full model preview

- Bug fixes top correct vertices from being displayed incorrectly in certain models

 

At present most I am still coding some of the above functionality and will still need to test everything. I have tested imports on my Benoit mod and Goldberg mods already.

 

v.1.2

 

- Support for Rumble Roses models

- Support for WWE arena models

- Minor bug fixes and enhancements to the program

 

v 1.3

 

- fix params in wwe 12 models

- fix params in superstar heads

- extract and inject entire skeletons from one model to another

- extract and inject individual bones from one model to another

 

v 1.4

 

- Injecting of objects from one model to another using the inject smaller function (version 1.3 did not import the weights correctly).

- Converting older 2010 and 2011 models to the new 2k14 format. The models will not work in game but this will allow you to extract objects from older models into the newer models.

 

 

v 1.5

- Reading and injection into the pc version models

- Reading and injection into the ps2 version models (no model preview)

 

v 1.6

You will need the scripts I have posted here for some of the new functionality: http://smacktalks.org/forums/topic/57378-tekken57s-maxscripts/

- The import function now supports the collada model format. Export your object using the collada option in 3dsmax and import into the yobj model.

- Vertex normals can now be imported with the import function. Import your model into 3dsmax using either brienj's or my import scripts. Select the object in 3dsmax and export using the tekken_export_wavefront script. This will create a wavefront object with normals included. Import this object as you normally do into X-Rey. Note that X-Rey will only import normals if they exist in the wavefront object. This means that if you import any objects after importing the normals and your new object doesn't contain normals, the normals will not be changed again.

- Bones can be positioned and imported. Import your model in 3dsmax  using the import_wwe_tekken_no_weights script. Move your bone to a new position and with the bone selected, export to collada format. Open the model using the bones command in X-Rey and import the bone using the import collada button.

- Weights can be imported. Import your model into 3dsmax using the import_wwe_tekken script. Note that the brienj script doesn't import weights correctly so that script cannot be used. My weight script also does not work for all models, not sure why but it works for most models. Select your object and export using the export_bone_weights_to_file script. Open the model in X-Rey using the yobj new format option and import the weights using the weight button. 

- Facial animations can be disabled using the Remove facial animations command under the utilities menu.

 

v.1.7

- Added a function to disable the facial animations in 2k16 PC models.

 

- Recoded the inject smaller function to add beta support for the pc models. If you are a 360 / ps3 user, select yes when prompted to import weights. If you are a pc user, select no when prompted to import weights. This function is still in beta phase as it does not work for all objects on the pc version. At present you can only inject objects of the same type e.g inject a head from one model to another.

 

 

v. 2.0

- Added a function to import animations for pc models. A full tutorial on creating facial animations can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMym6NUiBqA
 

- Added support for reading 2k17 pc models
 
- Added a function to change the header of model to "JBOY" under the utilities menu. 

 

What the program does not do:

Spoiler

- Open pac files or extract yobj from pac files (you should use X-Packer, quickbms, etc for this)

- Convert old model formats into the new format. I will be looking into this later but for now consider this impossible to do.

 

Pre Requisite Software:

You will need to install the SlimDX toolkit as a pre requisite for this program to work. The toolkit can be downloaded here: http://code.google.com/p/slimdx/downloads/detail?name=SlimDX%20SDK%20%28January%202012%29.msi

 

Please note that the serial key is specific to a single computer. Please send me the serial key from the computer on which you will be doing your mods. If you are planning on formatting your computer or upgrading your operating system, please do that first before installing X-Rey and requesting an activation key. If you have upgraded your pc and have a new serial key, you will need to purchase a new license.

Activation Instructions

2. I will receive an email from PayPal and will email you a link to the program.

 

3. Please download X-Rey from the link which is emailed to you.

 

3. Start X-Rey. You will be presented with an activation screen with a serial key. Please reply to email I sent you with your serial key.

 

4. I will email you an activation key. Once you receive the activation key, enter it into X-Rey and use the program as normal. Please retain your activation code as you can use the same code for future versions of X-Rey.

- Click the viewport to control the object. Zoom in and out using the mouse scroll button.

- Hold down the right mouse button and move the mouse to rotate the object.

- Mouse button 3 pans

- Some objects render off the screen for some reason so zoom out to view these.

If you haven't started looking at the formats yet i could help a little bit with the SHDC's etc. I have been able to convert them to PACH's so it shouldn't be too hard. I have converted a few HSPC's to EPK8 too. But i havent done a lot

Thanks for the offer to help.

 

X-packer 2017 already supports injection and extraction from SHDC. The files which are extracted can be created into a new pach file using the create new pach command in X-packer. 

 

The game reads pach files without any issues as long these are injected into a 2k17 pac file.

Fantastic work. Does this tool also read 360/PS3 2K16 files? Or was that functionality never coded? Apologies if I missed that. 

Donated - won't let me pm you my details. Inbox full?

Yeh and i am pretty sure the EPK8's and EPAC's work in game too because i have had a look at some non-important/unchanged files and they are in EPK8 and EPAC so they should work too

Is it possible to port 2K17 wrestlers straight over to 2K16 PC with this version? If so, might have to pick up a console copy of the game for now and rip some files so I can get some shit done ahead of the PC release.

Thanks, I have replied to your email. Yes X-Packer does read the 2k16 format as well, support was coded in X-Packer 2016. However 2k16 reads the old pac format also.

I was starting to think that X-Packer won´t be updating this year. :lol

Lol, been a very busy work year for me, hence the late release.

Yeh and i am pretty sure the EPK8's and EPAC's work in game too because i have had a look at some non-important/unchanged files and they are in EPK8 and EPAC so they should work too

Can you please confirm if this will work with wrestler pacs, I have tested and the game crashes when replacing a wrestler pac with and epk archive.

I haven't tested 2k17 wrestlers with the pc version, however the model format is still the same as previous years. You can probably use some of the wrestler parts in the pc version but I suspect that it will have the same issues as last year i.e skin rendering funny and legs moving wierdly.

@mbegghead , have you donated towards X-Packer 2017? As I've stated in the first post of every X-Packer thread:

 

4. I create a new x-packer for each new wwe game and these require separate licenses I.e. X-Packer 2016 for 2k16,  X-Packer 2017 for 2k17 etc.

Ahh, ok. Yeah, seems like back-porting doesn't work nearly as well as porting to the next game, sadly.

I can't really test in game but i'll have to try and find somebody to do it. The HSPC's that i converted to EPK8 hold the SHDC's inside because I havent converted those ones yet. But I believe it probably should work but who knows. Maybe someone can try my menu pacs converted to PACH in game to see if they crash or not too.

I tried using the Xbox 360 Goldberg model in the pc version this afternoon, the same issues exist with the model as previous years:

You can already do this by extracting all the files from the shdc and create a new pach using X-Packer. This new pach can be injected into any of the older pac files for use in older games.
