Alright, this game has quite a lot of text which is compressed in a weird way and thus merged with miscellaneous coding, but Season Mode seems to be an exception to this rule. Here's all of the text from Season and Pre-Season mode. If I'll be frank, I've never once touched Pre-Season, but I am aware that it has a LOT of cutscenes not normally seen or used in the regular variant (if what we've discovered is any indication), so I figured it's probably a better idea to just let the more SmackDown! savvy of you deduce which is used or not:
I think I've found where the cutscene id's are stored, but the file doesn't contain the ids of the scenes on main page which is a bit suspect. The ones I've tried from it do work, but I may have just gotten lucky. The potential id pairs (along with the EU Gameshark code) are here, if anyone wants to take a few at random and try them. There are duplicates, but after looking at the second game I'd expect that to accommodate different text.
Since I couldn't find a .pac unpacker that worked for this game that wasn't behind either a pay-wall or forum-post-count-wall, I made one. The C# source is in the archive if you're one of those sane people who doesn't run random exes. Any BPE files it outputs can be decompressed with QuickBMS and the Yukes.bms script.
I also dumped some images I didn't recognize and couldn't see after a shufty through the various menus. Obviously Jeff Jarrett's mugshot and nameplate isn't used, but for all the rest, maybe I just didn't look in the right places.

Can we confirm the Bloodbath scene, or a finished version of it, isn't used? I vividly remember seeing that scene as a kid after a match with Gangrel. Unlike the version we have on the page, the lights did go out, and it used red lighting (Similar to that of Kane) to work around showing blood. Is it possible we just didn't find that scene yet, or could there be revisions?— The preceding unsigned comment was added by ChristianMalice (talk) • (contribs)
Removed outfits from season mode
I found a video on YouTube which shows several wrestlers (Edge, Mark Henry, Bradshaw, Faarooq) wearing different outfits during backstage scenes. It would seem a lot of wrestlers had casual wear for backstage scenes, but this was removed before release. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCr3JanOmGI#t=2m40s Maxwell85 (talk) 02:32, 15 May 2016 (EDT)
