Frank is back (in a good way) for a non-canonical spin-off of Dead Rising 2ǃ

Unused Items

Multiple items from Case West were planned to return in Off The Record, but ended up being scrapped.

  • Canned Drinks. Lacks a sound file and an icon, as it reuses the 2x4 icon.
  • Flash Grenade. Completely functional and finished.
  • Microscope. Missing its model, sound file and icon, so that only the code remains.
  • Wheel Barrow. Leftover from Dead Rising 2, it also went unused there.

Unused Code

Adrian Lee, a survivor in Dead Rising 2 but cut in Off The Record, has a copy and paste version of him titled "redshirt". This survivor appears no where in-game. It is unknown what he was used for, if at all.

Unused Cutscene

A cutscene named "dc_sandbox_intro" exists in Off The Record's files. It's a choppy, early and clearly unfinished version of Off The Record's sandbox mode intro.

Unused Models

Under the Uranus Zone map, there's a model for a possible cut ride titled "Zone 16".

Unused Music

A 3 minute song titled "Protomen".

"Theramin" seems to be some sort of radio broadcast. It sends conflicting messages about what the radio broadcast is supposed to be.

Unused Audio

A placeholder call for the Scoop "People Like Us"

A placeholder call for a case, seemingly used for the beginning of a case where you head back to the safehouse.

The voice actors of these calls are different from Stacey's voice actor.


  • Almost every Instance of Chuck and Greene is replaced with Frank and West, causing Katey to be called "Katey West" in the game's text files, as well as making Frank seem like Chuck.
  • If Frank manages to get to the inaccessible roof from the Royal Flush rooftop, the player can find out that it has much more collision than in Dead Rising 2 for whatever reason.
  • The jock zombie that appears at the start of the game has a name, "Fotbal". It is most likely a shortened spelling of "Football", as there is currently no evidence of anyone ever being called "Fotbal".
  • Multiple times throughout the file for all the game's missions, Uranus Zone is referred to as "Western Park".
