3rd beta version. Patch over the original ROM, not over the 1st patch. Also make a BACKUP of your ORIGINAL ROM.. It's not fully translated yet, but the main body of the game has been.

NOTE:
Does NOT work with PJ64 1.6.


Instructions:
To install the patch you'll need Ninja Patcher and obviously a copy of the original VPW2 ROM.
- Ninja Patcher
http://www.romhacking.net/utilities/329/

How to apply the patch:

- Make a copy of the original ROM
- Launch ninja.exe
- Select the .rup patch file on the first screen that pops open.
- You will then be taken to this screen.

- Click "Browse files" (not folders) to select your ROM.
- Select your copy of the original ROM (this is the one that will become hacked)
- When selected click on 'Apply'

Now your ROM is hacked (note: you may get a framework error while executing the program, but if you click continue you should be able to proceed).

For each release of the patch, you'll need to apply it to an unpatched ROM.

What's been translated so far:
- Menu Screens
- CAW Mode (99.9%)
- Wrestler Names and Organizations
- Royal Road Succession main screen
- Post match screen comments and move translation under the timer
- Mic Appeals

What's left:
- Help Screens
- Rest of Royal Road Succession mode
- Credits
- Some other things I cant think of right now

Changelog:
Beta 3:
- Mic Appeals translated
- Post Match text translated
- Unlockables translated
- Main Menu and Exhibition Help screens translated
- Renamed a few moves (Mostly specials for the Japanese Wrestlers)
- Shoot Wrestling now appears instead of Martial Arts in Match Format

Beta 2:
- Changed the names of the hair options as it was wasn't displaying how they should have been in the Masks section.
- Renamed taunts and moves
- Hidden moves highlighted in different colours. Hidden WCW moves in yellow, Hidden WWF moves in red and other hidden moves in green
- Moves under the timer on the results screen have been translated
- Default colours of attires and masks in edit mode have been changed so they're more accurate (Not on the wrestlers themselves)

Bugs:
- 1st stable (All Japan 1) text will change on restart when you edit a wrestler.

Obviously it won't be perfect, but let me know of any bugs or mistranslations and I'll make the changes and incorporate them into the next patch. Please take a screenshot of the issue.

I've tested the patch and I can confirm that it works on PJ64 v2.1, v1.7 and Nemu. I wasn't able to get it working on PJ64 v1.6.

Enjoy the patch guys, and hopefully we should be able to see some saves being made for VPW2. Oh, and I'm also going to try and edit the appearances of the unlicensed guys...somehow...but that'll be once the patch is completed.

I am really looking forward to this. Things like this will get me into doing attire hacking in VPW2. Keep it coming SK.

This is amazing hope to see this accomplished.Using rom hacking is there a way to make one texture stay when replaced?Because the damn frame buffer dumps multiple textures is why it has not been done before.I'd like to help have a couple saves I've been working on would love to complete but was put off because I know ppl will not play with out a translation.Snesmaster made a valiant effort at translating and stubbs had some menu codes.Aj187 and Wldfb may be able to assist too.Best wishes S.K. Stylez sincerely R.R.

I know what you mean about the frame buffer textures. They are a pain, but with this, you're changing the existing Japanese text into English, so you won't need to worry about replacing textures.
The moves and bits like the CAW mode and Match Screen will be a pain to do as they are compressed into the ROM, but having extracted the ROM using midwaydec, I need to somehow recompress the files back into the ROM after translating the text.

Yep, I'm going to translate all the moves. I need to find a way to compress the files that have been extracted and edited and place it back into the rom. Only if midwaydec had a way to compress those files.
Double posting because I'm awesome :)

Here's some new screenshots. I've translated all the moves, but the taunts are left. I'll translate the rest of the taunts and the CAW parts before I release the first version of the patch. I'll then work on translating the help screens. credits, mic appeal phrases etc.
Oh, there's some bugs in the Fighting Style menu that I can't fix, and I don't think can be fixed. i.e Recovery Rate as Often.

Its not a glitch, the FAQ translation is buggered slightly,

Endurance should be Recovery Rate, I'm not sure about the rest.

I'm unbelievably excited about this, I'm happily surprised how quick this is.

Ah, I'll have a look into that again.

Beautiful!
I just got finished doing all the mist conversions in my save (so they dont revert to colorful pirates after being sprayed). Man, was that a tedious exercise. Yesterday I was setting up burns for the Fireball attack but it uses the same graphic as the black mist. I should be happy it saved me the work but......meh.

The CAW parts have been translated, and I've also sorted out the bugs with the Fighting Style menu. I'm trying to get the small details done too.

Just the bleeding taunts to go through before a first release.
