SIMPLE 1500 series Vol.22 The Pro Wrestling

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Look for any "leftover" (since this game came out first) stuff from SmackDown 1.
  • What those debug parameters do? Some of those options looks like game rules stuff like KO/countout finishes, but others are different (like, for instance, what S1500 does?)

Part of the Simple 1500 series of budget games, The Pro Wrestling is the game that built the foundation of WWF SmackDown!, albeit without the World Wrestling Federation license, instead opting for original wrestlers based on Japanese wrestling legends.

It also has the body part fatigue indicator, which was not introduced to the official WWE games until WWE SmackDown!: Here Comes The Pain many years later.

Debug Menu

Config

A SmackDown! leftover, 'cause Stone Cold said so.

Use the following code to display the debug menu after D3 Publisher logo.

Press Start to edit some parameters; if Start has not been pressed, use the D-Pad on the respective controller to select a character. The character list includes all of superstars included in the first SmackDown! game, including Create-A-Superstar parts-only characters such as Mideon and Stevie Richards, as well as removed wrestlers Jeff Jarrett (in slot 29), Meat (in slot 38) and Droz (in slot 39); the IDs here are the same as ones in the SmackDown! prototype, further confirming that the game was indeed based on an early build of WWF SmackDown!. Some names are also misspelled.

Dummy File

The extensionless DMY, when read as an .STR video file, reveals itself to be a tutorial video from Evil Zone, also developed by Yuke's. It can also be found in WWF SmackDown! and WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role.
