Battalion Wars 2
|Battalion Wars 2|
Also known as: Totsugeki!! Famicom Wars VS (JP)
Battalion Wars 2 (stylized as "BWii" for console name humor) is the sequel to Battalion Wars, and allows you to play as several different armies in separate campaigns.
*Check out LiveEditDebug and Debug. Probably need to replace the files in the corresponding directories to access these. Need to look at the unused units in the files of some levels, must edit the files to get them to appear.
Unused Unit Graphics
Unused Tundran Stratodestroyer
Apparently, the Tundran Territories were supposed to have their own Stratodestroyer. The unused graphic is just a red recolor of the Western Frontier's Stratodestroyer, which suggests it never got far in development.
Unused Xylavania Light Recon
An icon for the scrapped light recon. Unlike the Xlyavanian APC, this graphic got enhanced. This may imply they were considering bringing back the light recon until it was scrapped in favor of only using heavy recon.
Unused Commander Faces
Non Ghost Tsar Gorgi
A non-ghost version of Tsar Gorgi. It would probably have been used for the Western Frontier flashback in the final game.
Happy Young Kaiser Vlad
A version of young Kaiser Vlad, suggesting he was supposed to have more speaking roles; these may have been in either "Wings of the Gunship" or "Enemies Undone", since both have the Xlyvanians involved.
Knight Wars Unit Classes
eKWUnitClass KW_UNIT_UNDEFINED KW_UNIT_PEASANT KW_UNIT_CAVALRY KW_UNIT_KNIGHT KW_UNIT_ARCHER KW_UNIT_SPEARMAN KW_UNIT_HERO KW_UNIT_OGRE KW_UNIT_GIANT KW_UNIT_DRAGON KW_UNIT_TREBUCHET KW_UNIT_BALLISTA KW_UNIT_SIEGE_TOWER KW_UNIT_BATTERING_RAM KW_UNIT_OILER_STATION KW_UNIT_MOUNTED_TREBUCHET
In the game's main executable can be found these strings referring to medieval/fantasy-themed unit types. KW stands for Knight Wars, a cancelled strategy/action game set in the medieval ages that was in development by Kuju in 2006/2007 (See ). In Battalion Wars 2's Level XML files many objects have a "mKWUnitClass" attribute, so both Battalion Wars 2 and Knight Wars shared the same engine at a point in development.
hack.txt has this message, along with a Kuju Entertainment developer's email address:
This file exists as a workaround to a bug in DVD emulation that leaves files open after they are supposed to be closed. Stephen.Boissiere@kuju.com
DLL.txt in the DLL folder explains the code files used in this game (ZLib is a very popular compression library supposedly used in this game):
This directory contains DLL files for BW2. The DLL file are of type .rso and the ELF DLL symbol files are of type .sel Currently there are two DLLs: * ZLib * HomeButtonMenu The DLLs are generated as part of the build process. Please note each .ELF has to have a corresponding DLL symbol file (.sel).
