TUTORIAL- AN EXPLANATION OF THE EVT_DATA FILE PART 3 - TAG TEAM TITLE ENTRANCES /ALTERNATE ENTRANCE WITH TAG TITLES

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

This is the third part of the evt_data.pac  tutorial of discoveries. As I have mentioned in the previous parts of this tutorial, I don't claim to know all things, but I will share as much as I know or have discovered. I also focus on aspects of the file which I believe will be of more interest to the community or which can be practically implemented in their mods. In this post,  I will be discussing tag team title entrances.

As you are all aware, you can't set tag team title entrances in the game (even with data editor), only tag title Victories. Tag teams in the game with separate  title entrances are : The Ascention, The New Day (trio and duo combinations) and the New Age Outlaws (2k17 and the 2k18 mod). This is also good for setting alternate entrances with tag team  titles

With the instructions in part 1 of this tutorial, you will need to perform a mass extract of the evt_data file located in the pac / evt folder with pac editor.

open the folder named @6A95E7DD7C121B66.pac and examine its contents. You will need to locate a file 02.dat which is an extracted file. the archive it is extracted from is 02.bpe.

Open 02.dat in a hex editor and you will see the following data :

You will discover a pattern of a pair of entrance id's . They are listed as  

730  731..      750  751..     748  753..     711  752..     780   791

730   731.. 730 represents the Ascension tag entrance and 731 the Ascension tag title entrance id

750   751.... 750 represents the New Age Outlaws tag entrance and 751 represents the New Age Outlaws Title entrance. Now this is interesting because it seems the developers left the entries from wwe 2k17 since the New Age Outlaws are not in 2k18. If you are using the mods, you will notice the entrances are 00750.pac and 00751.pac. The title entrance for this mod works because the entries have been left in the evt _data file. If the 00751.pac file is not placed in the evt folder, the New Age Outlaws entrance will be skipped when they are set as tag champs in the game. This is because the game tries to locate the 00751 file and will not use the 00750 file with the tag belts around their waist which is the generic tag title motion.

748  753 … 748 is the New Day duo entrance (Big E and Woods) , 753 is their Tag title entrance

711 752 … 711 is the New Day duo entrance  (Kofi and Woods) , 752 is their title entrance

780  791.... 780 is the New Day trio entrance . 791 is the New Day trio entrance 3 . This is just an alternate trio animation when they are tag champs.  It can be substituted with 783 so it reads 780  783....

Offset(h) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F

00000000  30 20 30 0D 0A 37 33 30 20 37 33 31 0D 0A 37 35  0 0..730 731..75
00000010
 30 20 37 35 31 0D 0A 37 34 38 20 37 35 33 0D 0A  0 751..748 753..
00000020  37 31 31 20 37 35 32 0D 0A 37 38 30 20 37 39 31  711 752..780 791
00000030  0D 0A 30 20 30 0D 0A 30 20 30 0D 0A 30 20 30 0D  ..0 0..0 0..0 0.
00000040  0A                                               .
. Editing the file and reinjecting  is the same process as outlined in parts 1. If you have any questions, do ask. 

Thanks.

Figured I'd let you know that all of the files in the evt_data.pac file can all be opened with Notepad - there is no need to use a hex editor. :)

Question, what if you replaced the Ascension’s tag title entrance with the new age outlaws title entrance, and replaced the Ascension with Road Dogg and Billy Gunn? 🤔

Hi, it will work, but you will need to change the ID for the new age Outlaws entrance and title entrance to 730 and 731 respectively.

As you can't directly edit the ID for the 2k18 entrance files, you will need to decompress the entrance files and inject into a 2k16 format entrance file (that is if the modded entrance can't be edited), which you can edit easily. Before injecting back, you will need to open the 0fop file in a hex editor and change the Hex ID in offsets 20-21 from 02 EE (750) to 02 DA (730)  and the title entrance 0fop from 02 EF (751) to 02 DB (731), save and reinject as BPE using pac editor. Without doing this, the trons and theme music will not work with the entrances.

You will also need to remove the lights and effect files for the Ascension entrance in the evt/effects folder ( 00730.pac and 00731.pac) and the evt/lights folder (el00730.pac and el00731.pac), the gimmick files (gmev730 and gmev731) from the pac/gimmick folder and the particle files (pce60730.pac  and pce60731.pac) from the pac/particle folder, and replace with those of the New age outlaws.
