It's not just down to the skin colour though, is it? Like you said, it's the lighting ingame too. I don't think I have the patience for it any more to be honest. I just miss the old days, haha...
I totally sympathise with you, I think 2K really need to make sure moving forward caw mode mirrors in game lighting, even the colour adjustments for attire edits is worse this year, with black looking blue and colours looking too saturated and you can't set the specific numbers to the colours one by one and in the superstar edit mode they look different to in game it must be even worse for caw textures.
This game alone doesn't feel quite right for me I've been playing since Royal Rumble on Sega every wwf/wwe game since 1992 would you believe lol. But although the game is solid in some things it's totally off in others.
Silly things like Flair not having his normal music to a lot of the modern minitrons removed to still no extra themes to support lack of custom music and things like evolutions theme removed but evolution pre set entrances retained. The commentary still repeats badly. No new matches you'd think by now the casket matches would be a lock with the undertakers long association and inferno returned improved, special ref, I quit etc. No crowd or stage areas accessible still. You can't grab the title belt or bell in the corner. They have 5 different match types that all do the same thing weapons and no dq.
A lot little stuff but it all adds to the presentation / expierence and bringing it back to cawing that is where guys like you and other creators take the sting out a bit with solid creations but even that now is suffering.
I think I'm losing my interest, this year was the first year I never bothered pre ordering and I haven't even purchased the DLC at all which I equally do in advance I can see me dropping this game before Christmas I struggle to keep interested now and that really isn't like me I normally defend these games.
But to sum it up something is missing the magic for me is wearing off, I hope you find a smarter way of working to avoid this issue with support from the other caw makers.
