Proto:LittleBigPlanet (PlayStation 3)/LBP r26479
This is a sub-page of Proto:LittleBigPlanet (PlayStation 3).
|This article is a work in progress.|
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
A prototype that was likely used for Japanese localization. It contains everything in the full game with some minor differences, as well as some debug options and unused content.
Document the debug options in this build, as well as any Localization content.
- 1 Costumes
- 2 Unused Graphics
- 3 Unused Levels
- 4 Unused Plan Files
This build has a few costumes marked as being bundled with preordering the game that were later released as DLC. These costumes include Helghast, Toro, the Ape from Ape Escape, Kratos from God of War, and Nariko from Heavenly Sword. There are also some plan files grouped with these that seem to be for a DLC that was later removed. The most notable thing about these costumes is that two of them, the Helghast and Toro costumes, have early versions that differ from the final release.
Helghast Costume Pieces
Although this costume piece by itself doesn't exist in the full game, these gloves were later combined with the Helghast torso.
Competition Winner's Crown
Along with the Preorder Costumes, the Competition Winner's Crown has a different design. This design was later brought over to LittleBigPlanet on the PSP.
A few early icons for sushi can be found in gamedata/mesh_library/themed/japan/zen_garden/.
Get screenshots of the levels in-game, if possible.
gamedata/levels/palettes/common_costumes/pal_costumes_preorder.bin is a level similar to pal_costumes.bin from the final game, but it contains the costumes that are set as preorder DLC in this build.
gamedata/levels/palettes/theme_africa/pal_africa_savanna.bin seems to be a level that contains all of the items used in the Savannah theme.
Unused Plan Files
See what these load as in-game.
Plan files are LittleBigPlanet's way of storing popit items. These include costumes, stickers, materials, objects, and more. The prebeta has a few plan files that aren't present in the final game, though some of them exist in the beta.
An unused shape exists in the prebeta that uses an early popit icon for a metal square. Its filename suggests it is related to the level palette_inventory_start_creative.bin that is present in the full game.
A plan file exists for the removed Walker enemy. It lacks an icon and uses the default placeholder one.
Empty Preorder Costumes
Grouped with the preorder costumes in this build are some plan files for preorder costumes that don't have any costumes assigned to them, which implies the costumes they used were removed from the build.

Duplicate Costume Plans
The following plan files are for costumes that have other plan files in this build, and are simply duplicates.
pal_costumes_body_9953.plan (Midwest Dress) pal_costumes_body_7930.plan (Black Boots)
Miscellaneous Themed Plans
Some plan files exist for each of the themes that are prefaced with template seem to be empty variations of the backgrounds, along with a plan of a checkpoint for each theme. The majority of these were removed from the final game, although four were left in. The plan files for the Wedding theme also have a bunch of duplicates of the red candle object, for some reason.

These ones are present in both the prebeta and the final; listed here because they are of the same type.
