Sound Modding

Importing & Exporting Audio

You must have the game closed when following this guide.

Currently there is no way to add new sounds to the game, only replace existing ones.

Prerequisites 

Sound Editor Download Here
ARC Tool Download Here
WrestleMINUS Download Here

Step #1 | Unpacking and Setting up WWise 2017

We need to install a copy of WWise 2017.1.2. This comes packed with Sound Editor.

1. Open the dependencies folder and run WwiseLauncher.msi to begin installation. If you receive and alert to sign in, you can dismiss it by clicking outside of it, it is not a requirement.

2. Click install with all default installer properties.

Step #2 | Configuring the Sound Editor

We now configure Sound Editor.

Step #2 | Converting MP3/WAV to WEM

Audio in 2K games must be in WEM format, MP3 and WAV must be converted into this format. Sound Editor has this functionality.

Step #3 | Replacing a Theme

There are several PCK files which have distinct importance. Below is a sample for WWE 2K19 PCK files and what they pertain too.

music_show_m.pck Official PPV/Show Themes Pack
music_misc_1_m.pck Generic Themes/Show Themes Pack 1
music_misc_2_m.pck Generic Themes/Show Themes Pack 2
music_0_m.pck Superstar Themes Pack 1
music_1_m.pck Superstar Themes Pack 2
music_2_m.pck Superstar Themes Pack 3
music_3_m.pck Superstar Tag Team/Trio/Stable Themes Pack

Load the preferred PCK file you are wanting to replace audio in. This is located in your WWE game installation folder under sounds.

For this example we are going to replace the Irish Patriot generic theme.

You can right-click and select Play to preview any audio sample.

Step #4 | Adding a Theme Name (Easier than replacing the name)

Now that we have our theme in the game, using the example in Step #3, we need to change the string as well so we can find it in the menu under Themes. For this, we will need to use WrestleMINUS, which will allow us to
edit this area.


The next part of this guide can be confusing for people new to modding. Keep a close eye on important details.

Step #5 | Congratulations

Well done! That is the full theme replacement for your game.
