the full game...
The Heavyweight Titles
This game can be found on
the Heavyweight Titles compilation, along with several other titles,
2008: Management Edition
After making its mark in the ring, Wrestling
MPire 2008 heads backstage where the REAL power is! This special
Management Edition takes the same great gameplay and turns it on its head by
challenging you to call the shots instead of taking them. Create the saviour of
wrestling and then assume control of any one of 6 major promotions to realize
your vision. Take charge of the locker room by firing the deadwood and hiring
the stars of the future. And if they don't already exist, mould your own legends
in the ring and in the gym via an ever-changing cocktail of statistics. Then all
that remains is to bring your show to life as a chart-topping force of
entertainment! Along the way, you'll field suggestions from your employees,
demands from your superiors, and scorn from your rivals - as you work through an
endless schedule of possibilities. Your ring battles may be over, but the
ratings war has only just begun...
a PC compatible with DirectX
1.6gHz processor recommended.
Vista users may experience difficulties on "limited accounts" and are advised to
run the program as an "administrator"...
Click to order the official
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
previous games. Since space isn't an issue, the disc is also able to offer high
quality versions of the game media! The product ships from California USA, so please anticipate
shipping costs and delays for international orders.
Also note that this is the game in its purest form, and is
therefore the easiest to update...
The boxed game is also
available from CafePress
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 ($16.99), but international currencies are welcome and should be
translated automatically. However, please note that these online versions aren't
as easily updated as the pure boxed game...
Alternative Download Location (TryMedia)
Click to download a permanent
demo of the gameplay. 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 meaningless match between 2 preset characters. Simply take it as a test to ensure 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...
Boxed Game v1.3 Update
Click to download a patch that
brings the boxed game up to v1.1. Coming so early, there really is very little
to get excited about. It simply covers a bug that was affecting the way multiple
falls pan out in a team environment, and also ensures your referee preferences
are respected at all times. Simply use this new executable to load up the game
and it needn't be an issue...
If you enjoy customizing my
wrestling games, you'll be pleased to know that transferring files between
Career Edition and Management Edition just got a hell of a lot
easier! Despite their apparent similarities, the arcade versions and booking
versions have always had different sets of data that they handle in their own
way. That's still the case with this new series, but I've put together a special
program to bridge the gap. This "Data Converter" uses the programming you
wouldn't normally have access to to load up data from one game and save it for
use with the other. You can then take those converted files away and toss them
into your installation of the other game, which means any character changes
you've made can be transferred properly...
Get the game looking its best
with these high resolution versions of the costume textures. Simply use WinZip
to extract the contents to your game's "Characters" folder and you should notice
the difference. Be warned though - they're excluded by default because they
greatly increase loading times and damage performance on slower computers! You
may want to consider backing up the low resolution originals in case your gaming
experience is negatively affected...
Wrestling MPire Fansites
If you don't like my humble
graphics and fictitious rosters, there are several leading fansites where you
can get content made by fans! There you'll find dedicated artists that have
rather more time to devote to visuals than I did. The photo-realistic changes
aren't always in keeping with the game's original style, but it's worth a look
if you prefer that approach. And if you're inspired to make your own content,
you can find an audience for that too:
- The MPire Mall
- The Encore Mall
