Very minor update [April 26, 2017 / 00:50]

Sometimes, I spend money on things related to VPW2, because I love it so much. An opportunity was presented to me by the best wrestling podcast to obtain a VPW2 poster, so I took it.

Anyways, the most interesting thing about the poster is that it contains a screenshot of Edit Mode with a different background from the released game. I've cropped that section of the poster and uploaded it for your viewing pleasure:


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.


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.
