Updating the Crew (Part 2)

Officially 20% of the way through. I've been working methodically, promotion by promotion, the get them updated. If anyone is interested in my goals:

  • Each wrestler will be completely updated
  • If the wrestler is active, their first attire will be their most recent followed by other their bigger gimmicks or looks for the remaining attires
  • If the wrestler is inactive, their first attire will be their most recognisable (e.g. Hogan in trunks) with other costumes left for his other gimmicks
  • Each wrestler will be updated in MOR
  • Rosters in MOR and Exhibition will stay the same
Also a few translation changes have been made.

I've also drawn up a WWE vs WCW MOR. If anyone wants to have a look and suggest changes or champions, please do. Download the XLS file here!

Updating the Crew (Part 1)

I've come to the conclusion that updating the logic, stats, move sets and skills needs to be done methodically rather than me picking wrestlers at random. I've decided to create a save for every 42 wrestlers in the game, create updated versions of each wrestler and then put them in to the game. At the moment the plan is just to update the performance of each wrestler, however I'm sure there will be costume changes once this is done. The first 42 are:

  • Tatsumi Fujinami
  • Kensuke Sasaki
  • Shin'ya Hashimoto
  • Keiji Mutoh
  • Manabu Nakanishi
  • Yuji Nagata
  • Shiro Koshinaka
  • Takashi Iizuka
  • Osamu Nishimura
  • Yutaka Yoshie
  • Tadao Yasuda
  • Junji Hirata
  • Kengo Kimura
  • Osamu Kido
  • Akitoshi Saito
  • Jushin Liger
  • Koji Kanemoto
  • Shinjiro Ohtani
  • Kendo KaShin
  • El Samurai
  • Tatsuhito Takaiwa
  • Dr. Wagner Jr.
  • Antonio Inoki
  • Riki Chosu
  • Masa Saito
  • Kazuo Yamakazi
  • Jim Steele
  • Tiger Mask
  • Koutetsu Yamamoto
  • Dynamite Kid
  • Masahiro Chono
  • Hiroyoshi Tenzan
  • Satoshi Kojima
  • Hiro Saito
  • Don Frye
  • Scott Norton
  • Jeff Farmer
  • Tatsutoshi Gotoh
  • Michiyoshi Ohara
  • Toshiaki Kawada
  • Genichiro Tenryu

My final thought for today. Osamu "Tachihikari" Kawaha. Why is he in the game? He's not really done anything worth noting. He appeared in WAR, BattlArts, BJPW, PRIDE, DEEP and some other MMA promotions. I haven't seen anything of him other than his match with Goodridge in PRIDE and his match with Canek. He was trained by Tenryu too. Anyone know why he was even included in the game?

Onwards and Upwards

I'm working on the default move sets and logic for FFPW. I've noticed that a lot of wrestlers have incorrect finishers. In some cases I can swap a special for a finish and vice versa, in others, I'm developing new move sets with logic. The likes of Inoki have had a tweaking whilst the "rookies" of that day have had a complete overhaul. It's a fun project and I'm hoping to have some stuff out soon.
I'm also updating the translation, I'm basing a lot of stuff on FPR for two reasons:
  • FPR is the most recent
  • Most FP'ers play R and it will be useful if there is parity
I am also doing some localisation (Side note, I like how "Localisation" would be localised from US to UK :P) mostly changing "Brainbuster" to "Suplex".

Just damaged my knee with a poor moonsault. Hopefully nothing huge but I can't put much weight on it. Maybe a trip to the Dr? Also, drove my opponent to A&E after his manager turned on him and split him open with a steel chair. Who said kayfabe was dead?

Moving on...

I'm enjoying these puns. Anyway...

I'm currently updating move sets for the patch. Inoki, KENSO and Ultimo Dragon are amongst those to have their moves sorted. I'm also help out with cactusj00's (AWESOME) WWE vs TNA. I won't divulge any details... If you've not seen it yet LOOK HERE! You would be one crazy fool not to give it a go. Senior j00 has put a lot of time and effort in.

I'm TOTALLY in to Retro Game Challenge on the NDS at the moment. Basically, the Game Master Arino has sent you in to the past to complete retro game challenges with him as a child (Bizarre!). The retro games are all loosely based on real games from the 80's. You also get a GameFan magazine every few challenges that has cheats and hints. A really nice touch and took me back to the days of looking through piles of Games Master magazines.
