I have a video request; I couldn't download Super. Could anyone convert this, if possible without the first second-and-a-half (so it matches the audio)? I really would want that version of his theme for the game.

And if possible, have it uploaded via torrent because my PC's rapidshare/mediafire interweb download skillz aren't exactly good right now (2 kbps being the fastest FTW). If not it's okay; I leave the PC on almost all day anyway, lol. I would really appreciate the help, guys...thank you!

PS If anyone wants I have some themes here; I might have a few you need :D

"Music During Matches"

When a tool is updated/released to modify the reserved space for AHX & ADX files, I then will write the guide on how to "Import Music Into Matches" for playing during matches. The music will play randomly like it does on the menus. You will be able to import 90+ songs of your choice into your game during matches. Since this game saves alot of space you may get to import 100+. Definitely for RAW & SD! arenas.

I know everyone reading this thinks I am full of crap, but I did this on SvR!07 too. If anyone wants proof just PM me and I'll send you the files to replace for '07.

Whoa, now that is useful. What is done there, basically?

Do you replace the commentary or just play over it? Because I would so use that instead of SmackDown commentary. Ugh.

If you do get to tinker with the reserved space for music files, does that also give us a chance to use them as entrance themes? This is a very useful option. :D

Yes it replaces the commentary since the commentary is useless. As for the music files as entrance, I don't think you need to modify space for entrance because I already replaced superstar themes with my own entrance themes, and also I replaced the menu music, though I had to shorten the menu music.

Yeah; but what I was thinking is, if there is more music space, could there be more entrance theme options. But thinking about it now, I don't think it'd be possible since it does replace the commentaries. If that is to happen, though, I'll just replace the SmackDown! ones. Haha.

Thanks for the info good sir. A lot of people would definitely be waiting for that. wooo! :D

Oh, I see what you meant now, using the replaced commentary as entrance themes. To do that, you would just need the entrance music modifier codes and find the values for the commentary files and use them with the address. But I don't know their values yet.

I have began creating my own entrance video's for my CAW's. Thanks for posting video list from the MOVIE folder Freezer, that was a big help. I have only made one video so far to see if I had done it correctly. The disk won't load but I think I may have messed up part of my clip creating it. On the link you gave me for the SvR07-Videoediting, neither link in the begining to download the whole tutorial were working. Can you give me another link? If I can download a copy I can probably get my videos working in the game.

Here's something sweet I came across I don't know if any of you were aware of. you can get a free copy of TubeSucker from here http://www.newrad.co...ker/default.asp . I used it to download video's posted on YouTube. It was a lot easier than creeating my own clips from my DVD's!

Aw nice, thanks Ken! That'll be a real fun new feature. Haha!

Anyway, I got the video I requested before to work. I remembered I had a lot of video converters backed up somewhere; and some of them did convert to MPEG-I, so I managed to get the Save_Us video to work in the game. I've gotten a lot of videos & music in this time; but the problem is, I can't seem to assign the Legends video to Roddy Piper without changing his music. I edited his music (changed it to John Morrison's) and video (changed it to Maria's), but he still has his Piper theme because I didn't change his face/heel theme (as I did with everyone else). But whenever I change his video - just his video - his music also changes. SO I guess I'll live with him having a chick (a hot chick, even)'s video. lol

Well you can add your own custom music to the game. Meaning you can have your own music playing instead of the games sound track as well as have custom music for the wrestlers entrances. So let's say you made a CAW of Macho Man and Sting. You can import their original entrance music to the game. This can be done with their Titantron video also, which is what I am working on now. You can create clips of Macho Man and Sting and have them play in the game. Basically you create what you want, audio and/or video import it into an ISO of the game. All of the programs you need to do this are free. Here is the link, http://smacktalks.or...showtopic=21909 , to the begining of this thread which contains the instructions as well as links for downloading the needed programs. You can also read from the first page forward, if encounter a question while working on your project it may have already been answered. You will be playing a copied disk of your Smackdown game once you are done so you will need a modchip or cheat device such as a Codebreaker, Gameshark, or AR MAX. You can check out this link http://www.exploitst...hp?topic=5841.0 to read the tutorial and get the files for creating the program, then this link http://www.exploitst...ticles/FAQ.html to read the tutorial on how to play your copied game with the program you created for playing your copied game using one of the mentioned cheat devices. This was the way I went but I just found out something interesting. What I did was load my original SvR '08 in my PS2, once it fully loaded I released the CD tray and replaced the original with my copied game containing my added game music and it ran fine playing my music. Read the link I gave you though on how to slide the CD tray open, this is different than just hitting the eject button.

One problem I saw with the video editing: the arena videos, as I call them; the ones that play that show the show's title/logo (i.e. in a Raw arena the little video screens play the Raw logo over and over; in the SmackDown arena the SD logo clip on the SD globe by the entrance, etc) don't work well when you use an imported video.

I tested this when I played a Jericho-Venis-Angle IC title match. Of course it was fine when the Jericho Save_Us video played, but it just looked weird when Val Venis, and then Kurt Angle, came in.

After some time off I have began working on adding my entrance videos and am having a problem with my disk not working. I have added my own music before separately and I have gotten the disk to work so I know the problem is isolated to added the video's. Okay I am adding a total of 7 video's:

nmv008.mpg
nmv018.mpg
nmv034.mpg
nmv037.mpg
nmv040.mpg
nmv041.mpg
nmv042.mpg

I open Super and adjust the proper settings, add my files, click "Encode" and my files now appear as:

nmv008.mpg.MPG
nmv018.mpg.MPG
nmv034.mpg.MPG
nmv037.mpg.MPG
nmv040.mpg.MPG
nmv041.mpg.MPG
nmv042.mpg.MPG

I rename all of the files to:

nmv008.sfd
nmv018.sfd
nmv034.sfd
nmv037.sfd
nmv040.sfd
nmv041.sfd
nmv042.sfd

I use AFSExplorer to open the proper "NMV.AFS" files and then import my files as instructed in the tutorial. The new AFS files are then added the same way I have done my music before but for whatever reason this isn't working for my entrance video's. One thing that popped up that was not covered in the tutorial wa when I opened my AFS files before importing my files, a box popped up saying:

File has been detected as a v2 AFS file.
However, coherency errors have been detected. Use "Update" function to fix these coherency errors.

AFSExplorer can auto-update the AFE file, do you want to update it?

I chose no because that was not covered in the tutorial. Was I supposed to choose yes? Does anyone have any ideas for a solution to my dilemma?

Hm, I chose yes to every ASF file I opened, and it worked. I don't know if that's the only problem, though.

Well I just bought a 25 pack of DVD+R's so I figured I would do a little trial and error. I FINALLY got both my entrance video's and music to work together!!! What I did was when I opened up AFSExplorer I chose "No" to auto-updating the AFE file. Then I imported my files, when I was asked if I want to rebuild the file so it is smaller I also chose "No". Yeah I know that probably sounds messed up but screw it, it worked. I don't know but it may have something to do with using the disk without a Modchip. I was a little bummed out about the quality of my Titantron video's though. I used very good quality video's when I put my nWo Macho Man entrance together. it looked good on my computer but it's not so hot on my game though. Is there any way to make the video any crisper? If not, once again, SCREW IT!!! Over all, none of them are THAT bad as far as quality goes. During the entrance's for all of my CAW's you can tell who the person is in the video and the music matches up. Too bad you can't have the wrestler's talk when you perform taunts. I think it may have been WCW Nitro for PS1 but I remember playing Macho Man and when you'd perform a taunt with him you could hear him saying, "Ooooooh Yeaaaaaah". I'd love to add that feature but oh well!

As far as making video crisper, it seems like SvR only likes a certain format and size. It's very picky. I had a big problem with trying to make switch out themes in MUSIC.YAF that were longer but had poorer sound quality. Playing it, it freaked out. All I got was static. I would guess that their videos are formatted to a certain size, and they just increase the size so it winds up looking pixelated. That's a guess, as I haven't messed with video in '08 yet. However, I'm guessing the whole thing is intended to save some space on the game disc.

And yeah, it was WCW Nitro. I completely forgot about that. I don't remember if it was that game or one of the subsequent WCW releases, but I do remember the hardcore matches being ridiculous. There were big stop signs (pole and all) and other random things, all standing straight up in the ring. Aw geez...

BTW: Has anyone had any luck finding anything out about AHX format? I've had no luck whatsoever.

What I'm going to have to do then is re-do a few videos then. Based on what you're saying, I think if I go back on to YouTube and open the videos in the large window and if the appear to be of good quality still they will be okay to use in the game then. Here is a video of the one I have done for Sting, I am re-doing his video as well.

LOL i remember that Nitro game. I've been playing the old WWF Attitude recently and I just missed the voice acting there. Not only was it good (now they all seem lazy), it was plenty. They had like voice on some superstar intros, pre-match talkies, in-match talkies, taunt talkies...

anyhoo, i burned a new copy of the game and the arena video (i.e. Raw's logo video, SD's video in the SD arena...)'s still messed up when I use the imported entrance videos. Does anyone also have this problem, because if not then this is weird.
