Final Fire Pro Complete - A small update

I spent a good few hours this morning sorting through some old saves and game hacks to find a hefty chunk of edits I need for the SNES Fire Pro games so I'm hoping to have another pack out soon. I've finished what work I wanted to do on the Official Spike edits pack but I'm so close to completing the SNES one I'll save it until then. 

My next plan is to start working on Fire Pro G and 6MS. I want to whole collection to be finished by the end of August but I think I said that last August :P

Random Postings

I'm in the mood for an update so here we go!

I usually get quite involved in Fire Pro this time of the year. It's usually because work starts to drop off a bit and I can get away with doing Fire Pro stuff in the office. Mid-week I did complete designing a list of edits and saves for the Fire Pro Complete project I'm working on, however my flash drive died and I have lost EVERYTHING. Well the massive long list of wrestlers anyway. A bit of a pain.

I'm currently working on the Fire Pro D and Spike Edit saves. I've already got most of the edit completed, I just have to do some checks. I won't confirm a release date but it's high on the list of priorities.

Project FFP Complete - Portable

Well I've talked about this previously and have released parts of it, but I've decided this will be one of my main focuses in terms of Fire Pro over the next few months/years. To bring your all to speed:

I want to create every single wrestler ever to appear in a Fire Pro Wrestling game.

The first download is available here!

This will be quite a big task and the project will be made of several saves, each representing a certain game or platform of Fire Pro. I'm still in the planning stages but I do have quite a few hundred edits completed so far, I just need to organise them. Here's an outline of what I want to do and I'll post roster lists as I start working on the save:

Missing wrestling from FPR&Z that were in the NJPW, Team 2000, Zero-One, Pancrase and MMA rosters.

PS2 - AJPW, NOAH & Osaka Pro
Missing wrestling from FPR&Z that were in the AJPW, NOAH and Osaka Pro rosters.

PS2 - Michinoku, DragonGate & Joshi
Missing wrestling from FPR&Z that were in the Michinoku, DragonGate, AAA and Joshi rosters.

PS2 - Free
Missing wrestling from FPR&Z that were in the America, Free, BJPW and FMW rosters.

Missing wrestling from Fire Pro 1/A, 2 and WonderSwan

Missing wrestling from Fire Pro D

FPD - Official Edits
The official edits for Fire Pro D

Missing wrestlers from FPG and 6MS

Missing wrestlers from Queens Special

Missing wrestlers from SNES FP games.

So quite a task ahead but something I've wanted to do for ages.

Anyway, I feel I have a reputation of promising things that never appear so I'm also giving out the first complete save today too; Fire Pro Portable. This contains:

New Japan Pro Wrestling
Brian Johnston
Kuniaki Kobayashi

Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling
Kyoko Inoue

New Logos and Additional Name Fixes

Happy Spring Bank Holiday!

A couple of updates on both patches

Translation - 04.06.2012
A few minor name changes and fixes for the Fire Pro names. Nothing exciting but should tidy the whole lot up a bit more.

Full Patch - 04.06.2012
I've replaced the logos for WPA and AWG with their counterparts from Fire Pro Wrestling A (WFW and WWC). Have a look!

I've also included a "WFW & WWC" patch that will just change the logos in case you want to use it with the translation patch. If you're doing this just remember to apply the translation patch and then the logo one.

Coming Soon...
Currently I have a few costumes and recolours to work on. I should have more stuff up soon!
