I was thinking that same thing...

Adam, you magnificent bastard...you've given thousands of people hours of free enjoyable gameplay and you are finally getting your just reward...God bless you Mr. Ryland.

Anyway...I just downloaded all the pictures and banners...do I have to manually assign them to the wrestlers and promotions, or is there a place I should unzip them to that will automatically do it?

    Is he insane? From free to 35 bucks? That's a hell of a jump... and calling that price "superb" compared to other PC games- that's a very, very big stretch.

    As for the Kliq, I didn't mind any of the guys leaving, but I really didn't want Spanky begging to go.

    If you play as WWE, be very careful about the risk/racy factor. All it took was one backstage brawl between two divas, Stevie kidnapping Gail Kim (and she'd never be seen again) and poof, I lost both of my tv deals for Heat and Smackdown. Kinda hard running the split roster when you only have one tv show.




I don't think it was the Diva catfight or the kinapping that did it, it's just the risk level you have it set on. When you start off as WWE you have a risk level of 75 and UPN only allows like a 72 or something like that. I actually auto-booked the show and still got the same warning that the show was too risky.

The wrestlers pictures go in the PICS directory. The banners and logos go in the directories of the same names. I know the wrestlers already have the graphics configured, as long as your graphics have the same name as what's currently set. (Which, if you're using the official ones, they do.) I'm assuming the banners and logos are already set to, though I haven't tried those myself. The only thing you should have to manually configure are custom logos if you build your own federation.

UPN is only a 70% risk. Either live with a Lower than 70 risk rating, or up UPN's acceptable risk in the File Editor.

My dumb ass just figured "Aww, shucks, they gotta be kidding" when I was getting sent the eamils from them. One thing you can't duplicate in the game is how UPN is a network that runs shows like The Mullets and would effectively fold up and die if SmackDown was cancelled.

There really should be some way for the networks to actually recognize what's going on in terms of content on the shows and not just kick your ass off because your risk rating itself is too high. Also, why in the world is the WWE default setting higher than what the UPN default setting is? SD will surely be off the air next week after the Noble skits tonight.

After the 3.0 upgrade with event history, I really didn't think the game could get any better.... but this version just blows it away.

I only played with 4.0 for about an hour yesterday and was just amazed at how much of an improvement this is! I've started with an NWA-TNA sim. Shane Douglas has chastized me for hiring Scott Hall, so naturally I'm putting the two of them together in a feud. I've also got guys like Sting giving me advice on who he should be programmed against. Plus the Dusty finishes.... man!

Awesome, awesome version... and here I didn't think I'd ever get bored with 3.0....

God damn, the wrestlers on this game are whiny! I got an e-mail from Rico saying that he should be higher on the card when I friggin' put him in the MAIN EVENT on Raw with him winning the cruiserweight belt. Then Triple H wouldn't let me have him job to Funaki on Heat. I don't care that you have creative control, I'm the friggin' boss here, biotch. RESPECT MY AUTHORITY!

The wrestlers don't care about their literal position on any given card. From what I can tell, match order for a show is simply an order. You can randomize your order, and put your title matches first and your opening jobber matches last and it doesn't mean anything. (Although I'm not sure what, if anything, happens if you have an interview to hype a match occur after said match).

What Rico is complaining about is his assigned rank. He feels he should be promoted to the next ranking, so if he's currently a Lower Midcarder, then he wants to be a Midcarder. If you're playing on an easy enough setting, check his Over ranking against others his rank and above, and see if he's correct in asserting that he should be higher up the card.

Once you've downloaded all the pics, logos, banners, etc., do you have to start a new game before they show up? Or will they show up the next time you load the game?

Bulldog, at least 95% of them should work (there may be slight misnaming). If there's some that don't work, my advice is to not use the File Editor, but to just re-name the pics to what the File Editor has them as. That way, they'll work for both saved games, and new games.

Hope that wasn't too confusing...

One problem I've noticed (not so much a problem as much as a minor annoyance): Chavo Guererro's picture is that of Chavo Senior, and if you try to switch to Chavo Jr's pic, it doesn't work. I manually switched the names on the files, so it's all good, but it was annoying for a few minutes.

Ohhh, that's what it is. I was wondering when Chavo had turned into the Frito Bandito. I remember thinking to myself "no wonder the writers keep telling me Chavo's gimmick isn't working!"

Anyone else encountering this problem?:

Whenever I create a custom fed and start a game with it, I am unable to make Events. When I go to the Events screen and create one, it takes me back to the Company Business screen. If I leave that and go back to the mainpage, I am unable to reenter the Events section.

Hehehe. Actually (and I'm sure you've already figured this out), Chavo's "Cheater" gimmick doesn't fly for him as a face.

Yeah... I've switched him back to his old "Psycho" gimmick and turned him heel, the better to help his Unca Eddie in his feud with Chris Benoit, which according to the website "Threatens to tear the WWE apart!!1!"

Oh... any advice on how best to book La Parka on his meteoric rise to the top, via a feud with Eric Bischoff? (:

Two things:

1. If you aren't playing RoH (and if you are, then good job), sign the Briscoe Boys (Mark and Jay) and the Backseat Boyz (Trent Acid and Johnny Kashmere). I've ONLY booked them against each other (two tags and one of each singles combo, except partner vs. partner), and the lowest technical rating a match recieved was 99%. Dames has given them ratings starting at **** and as they've gotten more over (only based on these matches), the ratings have grown to ****1/2. They've worked their way from the midcard to the main event. I may very well have them feud consistantly until the end of time.

2. I share some workers with various other competitors, and recently MLW (with whom I share some of my top guys), made the jump from Cult to National. When it did, the overness of the guys that we share all recieved the "promotional growth" bump that happens to a roster when said promotion achieves the next level. While I can't say that I like sharing guys, it was nice to get a boost like that. Especially since I don't use them all that often. (The pay per appearance vs. signing guys money is WAAAY out of whack. I still don't understand why someone would be willing to work for $20,000 per appearance, and make five monthly appearancs, but then decide to sign a written contract for $23,000, and still make the same 5 monthly appearances. I know Adam's said that the guys asking $60,000 / show should be special attractions, but tell that to my booking staff who claim that Raven is our biggest draw and should be the focus of every show. And apparently, taking the poochie route of having everyone else talk about someone even when he isn't there still counts as an appearance and has a $60,000 bill.)

I'm going to make Jeff Hardy the #1 heel in RoH. Shouldn't be too hard, right?

Thanks again for the advice, Marty. Pics are loaded and it makes the game that much better.

Shane Douglas is such a whiner... can't do anything remotely creative with him, which makes the game SO REALISTIC!!!

Now I have a question about the logos and banners. I downloaded them all, put them and their respective folders, but they don't show up. Tried to put them in GFX, and that didn't work either (actually, I had to reload the game after that just to get it to start again). Any ideas?
