Er, slight mistake, there's already an English translation of VPW2 a few years ago by S.K. Stylez which uses A2=3.
The Freem edition - although translated - is unrelated to S.K. Stylez' project.

However Startrinket released their beta English translation for the first VPW today.

OK. Should I change the text to:

VF=3      (Virtual Pro Wrestling 64  2 English Translation)

and should I also add:

A2=3      (Earlier Virtual Pro Wrestling 64 2 English Translation)

for anyone who wants to try the latter?

Also, the VPW2 freem webpage seems to show a new version of that mod, released today, for anyone who's interested.

VF=3      (Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 Freem Edition)

A2=3      (Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 English translation by S.K. Stylez)

I remember making a wrestler on S.K. Stylez' translation but it didn't save my creation because I didn't put in A2=3. Adding it in fixes it so that's good.

"A2" isn't a unique ID for the English translation though, the original rom is using it too, so saying it's for the English translation in the comment field implies that it's different from the clean rom. If the hacker changed the save type, it must be added with the CRC for the patched rom instead of ID.

Freem's version seems to have changed both save type and ID though, so we have to trust Freem that "VF" doesn't conflict with any other games (or one can just add the CRC instead).

I've modified the first post as Nuu asked, so it's clearer to read, and the games are listed alphabetically.
Great! It's much easier to read. I see the spaces are still weird though. I suggest to use code tags for this. It makes the font mono-spaced so that everything will be lined up perfectly as long as you use equal number of spaces for each comment. It also makes it clear what to copy.

Updated to add:

NVPE=3      (Virtual Pro Wrestling English Translation Beta v1.75)
NVPJ=3      (Virtual Pro Wrestling Original)

for Startrinket's English translation of that game. The second code is to allow the untranslated (Japanese) version to save correctly too.

As it turns out the full 4-letter game code doesn't work. Only the two middle letters (which is an abbreviation of the game's title). So NVPE=3 and NVPJ=3 should be changed to just one VP=3 entry.


The first Japanese-exclusive Pokemon Stadium game is incorrectly set to FLASH by the ED64. It should be 32kByte SRAM. Add the following line to save_db:
Code: [Select]
PS=3 (Pokemon Stadium, Japan-only title)

OK, I've changed the two Virtual Pro Wrestling entries to:

0xC130FFE8=3    (Virtual Pro Wrestling English Translation Beta v1.77)
0x045C08C4=3    (Virtual Pro Wrestling Original)


and also added:

PS=3 (Pokemon Stadium, Japan-only title)

Added save data for the newly released prototype Viewpoint 2064, as linked in the thread http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=9766.0. Thanks to DustyK112 for the announcement.
