Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 (N64 import) Version 1.1 February 21, 2000 By Jason VanEtten Jvanette@rich.com – feel free to email me with any questions! For those wondering if you should purchase the game – hell yeah! Especially if you are a fan of Japanese wrestling of shoot fighting. It has 100 premade wrestlers, and slots for 16 more on the cart. There is an edit mode that dwarfs WrestleMania2000's, with probably 100 or more new moves (at least). And it contains ALL the old moves from Revenge and WM2K. So you can make ANYONE. This is the best wrestling game ever. I've only had this game for three days, and I plan to update this faq by March 1, 2000. The update will include much more, so come back soon! This faq will cover the following: 1. Wrestler List 2. Secrets (hidden moves, objects) 3. Secrets (hidden wrestlers) 4. Guide to shoot fighting 5. Edit mode hints and secrets 6. Major Players (coming March 1, 2000) 7. Revision History You'll be hard pressed to get the most out of this game without a translation guide. There is a great translation guide available on cheatcc.com written by the Icemaster. Also, http://icemaster.org is a great site for information on this game, and other wrestling games. You will also have a hard time playing this game if you're not familiar with THQ wrestling games for the N64. See a faq for Wrestlemania2000 or WCW/NWO Revenge if you don't know how to play. 1.

Hidden moves, objects, etc. After you have powered your game on approximately 20 times, you will see a black silhouette of Goldberg doing the jackhammer. This means you have unlocked the moves from WCW/NWO Revenge, for use in Edit Mode. Don't flip your power switch like a madman, because you paid way to much for this cart to ruin it. I waited until I was about 15 seconds into the introduction before I turned it off, then back on again. After you have powered the game on for about the 40th time, you will see Mankind doing his mandible claw. This means you have unlocked hidden moves from Wrestlemania2000, for use in edit mode. As you unlock hidden wrestlers, their moves will also be available in edit mode. I'm not sure if this happened or not, but in a Battle Royal it looked like 2 computer opponents and I grabbed Vader at the same time, and we executed a three man powerbomb. I'll verify this in the next update. Andre the Giant is classified as a superheaviweight. This means you can't give him many of the normal moves. Meaning that in the animations you will really struggle to give him a back suplex, and you'll fall down after you bodyslam him. Excellent animations here. There's a new move series added in VPW2. When you run towards your opponent, normally you would just hit B and do a striking move. The new move (and very cool) is this: run towards your opponent and press the A button to do a running grapple move (you pick the move in edit mode). You can do two moves (on with the d-pad, or one without the d- pad). Very sharp, especially Akiyama's suplex. 3.

Guide to shoot fighting This is just a preliminary sketch of what I've learned so far. This should be in full detail by March 1, 2000. Shoot fighters can't throw or be thrown into the ropes. They can't do specific moves from a strong grapple, and they can't jump off the ropes. They can't pin their opponent either. Short grapple + A: this is the same as normal wrestlers. You usually have a belly to belly suplex, a knee strike to the body, repeating knee strikes, and a choke take down. Short grapple + B: this will do a combo. Push your D-pad in different directions and press B to do different striking moves. Pressing the A Button during the combo will cause you to do a short grapple move. Long grapple: If you are successful with your grapple, you will automatically take down your opponent, and mount him for punches to the face. Press your B button rapidly to continue hitting your opponent. Your D-pad can be used to control where you hit your opponent (face, ribs, side of head). If you punch your opponent long enough, he will turn over, and you can begin punching him in the back of the head. If you press your A button while mounted, you will start fighting to get an arm lock. Short grapple, then R button: Hitting the R button shortly after a successful grapple will cause you to automatically go behind your opponent and take him down with a rear naked choke. Long grapple to opponents back: You will take your opponent down from behind, and mount him while he's face down. Press B button rapidly to begin punching him in the back of the head. To do your special: when your spirit is up, do a short grapple then hit the toggle stick. When your opponent is on the ground: press the L button to mount him and begin punching. 5. Edit mode hints and secrets To give anyone a mask in edit mode, simply push your D-pad to the right when you are in the appearance menu on the first slot. You can make a great Jushin Liger if you look hard enough in the mask options! 6. The Major Players Coming March 1, 2000. 7. Revision History 1.0 – Initial Post (2.18.00) 1.1 – Fixed spacing and spelling problems, added moves to Andre and three man powerbomb, the running A move, and revision history. (2.21.00).
