3rd beta version. Patch over the original ROM, not over the 1st patch. Also make a BACKUP of your ORIGINAL ROM.. It's not fully translated yet, but the main body of the game has been.

NOTE:
Does NOT work with PJ64 1.6.


Instructions:
To install the patch you'll need Ninja Patcher and obviously a copy of the original VPW2 ROM.
- Ninja Patcher
http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/329/

How to apply the patch:

- Make a copy of the original ROM
- Launch ninja.exe
- Select the .rup patch file on the first screen that pops open.
- You will then be taken to this screen.

- Click "Browse files" (not folders) to select your ROM.
- Select your copy of the original ROM (this is the one that will become hacked)
- When selected click on 'Apply'

Now your ROM is hacked (note: you may get a framework error while executing the program, but if you click continue you should be able to proceed).

For each release of the patch, you'll need to apply it to an unpatched ROM.

What's been translated so far:
- Menu Screens
- CAW Mode (99.9%)
- Wrestler Names and Organizations
- Royal Road Succession main screen
- Post match screen comments and move translation under the timer
- Mic Appeals

What's left:
- Help Screens
- Rest of Royal Road Succession mode
- Credits
- Some other things I cant think of right now

Changelog:
Beta 3:
- Mic Appeals translated
- Post Match text translated
- Unlockables translated
- Main Menu and Exhibition Help screens translated
- Renamed a few moves (Mostly specials for the Japanese Wrestlers)
- Shoot Wrestling now appears instead of Martial Arts in Match Format

Beta 2:
- Changed the names of the hair options as it was wasn't displaying how they should have been in the Masks section.
- Renamed taunts and moves
- Hidden moves highlighted in different colours. Hidden WCW moves in yellow, Hidden WWF moves in red and other hidden moves in green
- Moves under the timer on the results screen have been translated
- Default colours of attires and masks in edit mode have been changed so they're more accurate (Not on the wrestlers themselves)

Bugs:
- 1st stable (All Japan 1) text will change on restart when you edit a wrestler.

Obviously it won't be perfect, but let me know of any bugs or mistranslations and I'll make the changes and incorporate them into the next patch. Please take a screenshot of the issue.

I've tested the patch and I can confirm that it works on PJ64 v2.1, v1.7 and Nemu. I wasn't able to get it working on PJ64 v1.6.

Enjoy the patch guys, and hopefully we should be able to see some saves being made for VPW2. Oh, and I'm also going to try and edit the appearances of the unlicensed guys...somehow...but that'll be once the patch is completed.

Something is going to happen to the Soundwaves...soon.

This is awesome, its great being able to
-Input peoples/stadium names fully like No Mercy, and it keeping all the time throughout.
-To see the moves without previewing them. (so much time to save)
-Set up rules without gamefaqs.

I found a Swastika due to a text glitch in the results page though.
Apart from that, solid man.

The symbol names also happen due to using a renamed save from the non-translated version of the rom, its not a biggy though, takes a click on the default button to fix.

Ah, if you mean the symbols underneath the match timings, then I know about that. I haven't translated those yet. I should have also mentioned that it's best to use the patch fresh without any saves, otherwise you'll get the name issues.

Is there anyone that is fluent in both Japanese and English? I need someone to translate some stuff. Google and the other translators suck big time.

The only person I can think if is a member called Jazz. He has travelled to Japan before and believe he knows the language buddy. Sadly I've not seen him around too much these days. Send him a PM. Great work on this too.

I've renamed some taunts according with the in game wrestlers. I'll probably go back and do the same with some of the moves.

In addition to renaming the taunts, I've decided to differentiate the hidden moves by giving them separate colours. The hidden moves from Revenge being Yellow, the hidden moves from WM2000 being Red and the other hidden moves being Green.

That's strange. I haven't had any issues applying any patches. You sure you're using ninja.exe right?

I guess i do, it doesn't seem very complicated

from WldFb's topic
 
- Browse files (not folders) to select your patch/rup file
- Select your copy of the original ROM (this is the one that will become hacked)
- When selected click on 'Apply'


I tryed on two different roms but none work :unsure:

Are you patching the right ROM? It needs to be an unbyteswapped ROM. You might be trying to patch a byteswapped version. If you open the ROM in a hex editor, an unbyteswapped version should start off with 8037 (which is what you need). If it's 3780, then it's a byteswapped ROM.
