LIST OF PORTED MOVES WITH PREVIEWS

As suggested, I have renamed this thread "Move animations from older games". this thread contains a few of the moves animations which the developers have either removed or disabled in WWE 2k18. Most have been added by porting over the move animation files from previous games for each move. Some work flawlessly, some work with glitches , some don't work at all and some are just impossible to port over due to complexities in the animation sequence.

The animation files are restructured differently from previous games this year . I will personally say it's a bit of a blessing as it has made it much easier to make ported move animations work in the game with little or no glitches. This was difficult in wwe 2k16 and 2k17 . I will say apart from the Hulk Hogan Leg Drop, which is a special sequence with two data files controlling the full animation, none of the other moves from 2k16 worked flawlessly in 2k16 and 2k17 as the characters models  froze after the animations were executed.

I have repacked the files which were released previously,tweaked a few and added some more. The previews for the moves can  be seen in the videos below

Thanks for your discoveries, guess there's no hope for a proper Hogan Atomic leg Drop this year...:sleep:

who knows? maybe some expert modder can make it work somehow.

It's a tough ask. Definitely a lot of changes have been made with 2k18, favouring some animations and not others. Even the move animation file organization is changed.

The thing about Hogan's Legdrop is that it replaces a current one. In WWE 2k18, there seems to be a safety in place this year that has a wrestler stand up from a move if the animation doesn't finish in the maximum allowed time to prevent game freezes (which was a problem in previous years when a character got stuck in the physics or even cut off from a move at times, the "victim" could no longer get up/move). This in turn appears to make the wrestler get up early since Hogan's legdrop takes longer to execute.
Now, if one could find where that maximum allowed time for the legdrop  is stored and change that to whatever is needed for Hogan's (plus a bit more so it doesn't glitch out in certain situations when there is a higher distance, etc.) it could work. Or maybe somehow assigning it it's own move ID might work as well (not sure how you would do that either, however).

If it’s OK with @Elg, I was going to revamp hogans move set in my thread with the corrected moves, and also include these taunts. Is that all right?

I did assign a different ID  through hex Editing ,but still did not work.

Just overwrite your PAC folder with the one from the zip file & they'll all show up in the game when you go to customize the moveset.

It doesn't replace any move. 2K listed some moves in the createmode.pac file as not used. These are moves removed from the game. What I did was assign the move to one of the slots. Still trying to tidy up a few things and make sure other moves are not affected.

Amazing work.  Once you’ve got it done, if you don’t mind I’d like to get it all packaged up with Elg’s taunts and the updated moveset and pofo for every one to use?

Wow this sounds really good. Awesome work by you guys involved in this. This goes to @squaredcirclefan for sorting the leg drop, @Elg for the taunts, and @AznBlusuazn for the moveset and pofo. I know you haven't updated it yet but I am going to thank you anyway because I know you do such an awesome job of your mods.

Big thanks to you guys for this. Will see some realism to Hulk finally.
