ME2 Shepard's Corny Dancing
« on: August 17, 2013, 22:45 »

Hey guys, I've been exporting stuff from Mass Effect for a machinima I'm making, and I found all sorts of psa files of dancing...but I cannot find the corny one Shepard does in the game. It's kind of specific, and has been made fun of in the game directly, so I wanted to get my hands on that exact one. Here's what it looks like...

I've loaded every PSA including the "HMM_" tag, since that's male Shepard's animations...but came up with ZERO dancing animations. HMF_ has a few, but those are all the dancing motions from the strippers and such...

Maybe something is going wrong...I've found a AnimSequence that is most likely...the thing I want...it's called HMM_AM_Towny_AM_Dancing....I've used the batch exporter on the game and opened EVERY HMM_AM_Towny.psa file and not one of them has "AM_Dancing" or any dancing anims....I found the file in BioD_OmgHub_500DenVIP_LOC_INT.pcc....but when I extract the package, HMM_AM_Towny_AM_Dancing isn't there. Then I go an look at the batch extract, and I see that it didn't even have a folder called BioD_OmgHub_500DenVIP...so did the batch extractor just skip this pcc?

When I try extracting just the sequence all I get is...

AnimSequence is really unsupported alone. It should be used in any AnimSet to be exported.

I know, the problem is no animset has this animation. It claims that it's in HMM_AM_Towny...yet I imported every single animset with that name and no luck!

I actually gave up and went to Mass Effect 3, and imported all of their HMM_AM_Towny files, and found it instantly. For some reason, umodel wasn't extracting that animation sequence with that animset from ME2...but was in ME3.

Perhaps UE3 in ME2 has bug caused unlinked AnimSequence to be placed into cooked upk file. Also it's possible that you didn't find corresponding AnimSet which uses it. Also, Mass Effect has extension to original animation system - they separated some data from AnimSet to BioAnimSetData class, and sometimes AnimSet does not exist for AnimSequence. In the case of existing BioAnimSetData without link from AnimSet umodel will generate AnimSet with message in the log "Generating AnimSet <name> (<number> sequences)"
