Fire Pro Wrestling D - NOW IN ENGLISH!
Those awesome guys at Revive DC have finally finished their translation of the epic wrastling simulation Fire Pro Wrestling D. Now, normally a fighting game would be self explanatory and wouldn't require much linguistic knowledge but Fire Pro Wrestling D is so in depth, including a a roster of hundreds of wrestlers all with a huge array of moves and modes, that the sheer variety can be daunting to the first time player. Crap, add to that the rather cryptic pseudonyms to bypass legal issues for wrestler names, modes, and groups, and the game is even rather difficult to navigate for Japanese speakers. Well, wrastling fans can now rejoice as the most in-depth wrestling title on the Dreamcast has become that much more accessible.
"Whatcha gunna do when Hulkamania and my 24" pythons run wild on you?"
Here is a statement from the interestingly named Comrade Snarky, one of the people involved in the project on how to get the translation disc working.
" First things first, you're going to need to have some web browser settings registered. You won't need to connect to the internet. If you don't have settings registered (you can tell if you burn this and the network setting is greyed out), you're going to need to download one of the Dreamcast web browser discs. Just put in a bunch of fake information, then get to the point where it asks you if you want to save the information. Do so. Now, when you go back to Fire Pro the network option will no longer be greyed out. You need to do this so that you can access a save file that we stored on the disc to rename all of the wrestlers to have English names"
The file can be downloaded from here and you can get more info at Dreamcast-talk along with some nice little covers to include in your collection. So, get your wrestling hat. Its time to WRASTLE!
