Empty Dummy Renders for WWE 2k18 

Latest version: 2018.1.0.0 | Synopsis: This client-side modification for WWE 2k18 gets rid of the annoying empty Dummy Renders by replacing them with mpty ones so that instead of the annoying default dummy Silhouettes there appears nothing there for modded Wrestlers.  This may be the best compromise until we finally figure out how to assign custom renders to superstars.

Well it is certainly better than the silhouettes, although it is a shame that the modded stars can't have there own renders. I think someone said in a post before, there has been no way of figuring this out has there?

Nope. Nobody has figured out where and how these renders are assigned. It's probably hard coded to the slots, but nobody seems to have figured out exactly where. Hopefully we'll figure it out some time in the future. Until then, the empty dummy renders feel the least annoying to me.

I have to agree with you on that, the dummy renders are awful. Hopefully in the future someone will be able to fix. For now your mod is the best solution to an annoying issue. Many thanks for it.
