Old documents found! [January 17, 2016 / 17:52]

Going through some old discs, I found a collection of forum posts and websites I had saved around the turn of the century... I've left them unmodified, and the pictures aren't included either, but oh well. Enjoy.

Old documents

You snooze, you lose. [November 21, 2014 / 00:02]

Over a year passes, and someone else has done what I didn't thanks to me being distracted by something else, yet again. (Are you surprised?)

S.K. Stylez did not want to wait for me (which is a good idea, because at this rate, I wouldn't have gotten back to the VPW2 translation until 2015) and decided to take matters into his own hands. I applaud this effort, of course (and not just because I'm listed in the credits :p).

At some point, I really need to take a look at it to see if there's anything I can help with, if S.K. Stylez doesn't get to it first. :v But until then, there will always be people interested in the Virtual Pro-Wrestling series, it appears.

If you don't stop to look around sometimes, you'll miss everything. [October 10, 2013 / 13:28]

Apparently spoondiddly is Zoinkity of N64 hacking fame. Why is this relevant?

A while back, I stumbled on this post on Lost Levels. This news is important because extracting files out of the ROM is the first step towards easier ROM hacking, as well as being able to play hacks on the real N64. A topic on ROMhacking.net talks about "Midwaydec", a program that can be used to extract files from WWF No Mercy.

The even bigger news out of this, though, is that Virtual Pro-Wrestling 2 is supported by this program, and that Zoinkity has been working on a translation of the game for some time now.

Keep in mind, I only just learned about all of this a few days ago. I have been in contact with Zoinkity and plan on helping him with the VPW2 translation. If anything, this will be penance for VPW 2000 many years ago.

I missed Virtual Pro Wrestling 2's 12th Birthday [February 1, 2012 / 17:16]

January 28th is always a special day for me. VPW2 was released on that date. Allow me to make up for missing it by providing some activator codes.

Small VPW2 camera doc [August 25, 2011 / 17:27]

I was asked to look into VPW2's camera for values to control zoom/level/rotation/whatever, so I did. You'll find that in the VPW2 section, of course.

still alive. [August 6, 2011 / 14:31]

I updated some of the VPW2 docs, though I haven't really been active that much recently.

finally getting around to WM2K. [September 12, 2010 / 22:54]

After putting it off for so long, I'm finally going to get around to working on WrestleMania 2000. Already, I've found references to Hell in a cell, as well as some leftover Japanese text plus some odd "First Standing" and "Last Staning" (sp) strings. More as I find it.

I'm alive. [August 28, 2010 / 01:07]

I'm alive. I've learned that burning out on projects that have become more of a burden is not good. Therefore, I'm working on studying VPW2 again. I've gone through and updated some of the documents (misc.txt, intro_control.txt, 0x3FAB0.txt [which should be renamed wrestler_defaults.txt after the recent discoveries...])

stuffs [February 22, 2010 / 20:00]

Today has been spent looking at IDA Pro on one screen and VPW2 on the other. Life is good. Started documenting the code that deals with the data found in intro_control.txt. Enjoy!

help i'm being held captive by the development of another project [January 18, 2010 / 16:36]

send help i'm trapped in a sm-ssc factory

Seriously though, I've been spending too much time working on that project and not enough time hacking the VPW games.

Works in Progress
Aside from the number of documents I've uploaded that are WIPs, here are some more WIP projects in detail:
General Things [multiple]
Things that apply to multiple VPW games.
Virtual Pro-Wrestling [PS1]
The original 1996 PS1 game that started it all. Unfortunately, I don't have much on this game yet.
WCW vs. the World [PS1]
The first VPW game to be released in the US.
WCW vs. nWo World Tour [N64]
Most of my info on this game concerns v1.1U as that's the one I own and can therefore Gameshark on. Matching values for v1.0U and v1.0P will be forthcoming, eventually. There is a guide to porting codes between all three versions, which may be of use if you are impatient. :)
Virtual Pro Wrestling 64 [N64]

WCW/nWo Revenge [N64]

WWF WrestleMania 2000 [N64]

Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 [N64]

WWF No Mercy [N64]

Def Jam games [PS2,GC,Xbox]
Once I start caring about these more and figure out how to debug on an Xbox and Gamecube, I'll start working on it. Until then, there are more important VPW games to hack.
