Evolution Of The MPire
The projects that paved the way
for this one are immortalized in Evolution Of The MPire...
Everything so far
has been a warm-up act... get ready for the main event! Following the cult
success of 2004's Wrestling MPire, the world's biggest and most
innovative wrestling simulator is back and better than ever for a Wrestling
Encore! It takes the same revolutionary contract-driven career mode and fulfills
its potential with improved graphics, animation, sound, and gameplay. Create
your own wrestling wannabe from scratch, and then immerse them in a gigantic
universe of over 200 wrestlers spread across 6 major promotions. Negotiate the
big-money deals that will make you rich, win the high-profile matches that will
make your name, and develop the backstage relationships that will determine your
fate - as you play through an endless schedule of possibilities. Or simply blow
off steam with the wildest in-ring action that a PC can handle - featuring up to
30 characters on screen, and up to 100 fully interactive items and weapons!
Contains acts of extreme violence and a potentially addictive
a PC compatible with DirectX 7.0 or higher.
1.6gHz processor recommended.

boxed CD version of the game.
It comes in a fully decorated
jewel case, complete with a pull-out instructions summary and exclusive bonus
material - including source code extracts, graphical templates, and demos of all
previous games. The
product ships from California USA, so please anticipate shipping costs and delays
for international orders. For security reasons, this
is the only option that can benefit from downloadable updates...
Downloadable Version v1.6
Click to download a special trial
version of the full game. You can load it up 3 times, free of charge, after
which you must register at full price to continue. Orders are processed in US
Dollars ($14.99), but international currencies are welcome and should be
translated automatically. For security reasons, this option cannot benefit from
the downloadable updates (although it does come as the latest version as
standard). Registered owners of earlier versions should be able to upgrade to v1.6
for free. Please contact
directly if you have any trouble doing so...
Alternative Download Location (MDickie.com v1.6)
Click to download the official
demo of the game. In the interests of a small download, please appreciate that many features
restricted and/or reduced in quality. It merely gives you a chance to play a
preset one-one-match in a preset arena. Take this simply a test to see that the game works on your
computer, and then read the official preview or download the trial version to
learn more about the full game...
Version 1.6 Update
Bring the boxed game up to date
with Booking Encore courtesy of this free patch. It features all 5 brand new
moves from that second instalment - complete with the revolutionary new
"stumbling" system! You can also enjoy the more finely-tuned gameplay and a
catalogue of other adjustments - including character models with ears,
face-to-face tracking, and access
to the thumbtacks weapon! With the new self-extracting executable,
you can't go wrong. Simply take care to enter the correct directory of your
installation, and the files will automatically find their place. And once
installed, you can view all modifications in the "Version History.txt"
document. Naturally, the new moves won't be distributed among your existing
characters - so you may like to make a concerted effort to do that too (and then
back-up to the "Data/Default/" folder to avoid doing so again)...

Real World Patch
Click to download a collection of
alternative graphics and data files that transform the Wrestling MPire
into the real world! It features the USA's World Wrestling Federation, the
UK's Frontier Wrestling Alliance, Japan's New Japan Pro Wrestling, shoot
fighting's Ultimate Fighting Championship, and Mexico's Consejo Mundial
De Lucha Libre. The rosters within feature real wrestlers too (although liberties have
been taken to ensure an even spread). The transformation is completed by a
selection of authentic aprons, canvases, t-shirts, title belts, and even a
genuine tabloid newspaper! Simply enter your game's directory and the files
should find their place. You must then use the game's "Reset World" command
before the changes take effect...

Encore 3D Pack
Unofficial game mods tend to take
the form of stray bits & pieces rather anything structured, but this ambitious
Wrestling Encore overhaul takes a shot at everything - from the models
and animations through to the textures and sounds. Such a thorough
transformation may be a little overwhelming if you're a fan of the classic look,
but if boredom has set in after all these years this might just be the change of
scenery you need to enjoy the game all over again! Simply extract its contents
to an up-to-date installation of the game and you should be good to go. Please
note that it has nothing to do with me though, so you should direct any queries
to the mod's creator at
this forum - where you can discuss the project and find out more

It disposes of my cartoony graphics and replaces them with the photo-realistic
visuals that you'd expect from a mainstream release. Unfortunately, official
websites aren't forthcoming - so you'll have to persevere with the discussions
and hunt down what you're looking for...
