Proto:WWF Attitude (PlayStation)
This page details one or more prototype versions of WWF Attitude (PlayStation).
|This article is a work in progress.|
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
This prototype is documented on Hidden Palace.
A prototype of WWF Attitude for the PlayStation released as part of Hidden Palace's 'Project Deluge'. It is dated April 28th, 1999 which is almost three months before the final US version's build date.
- The opening FMV has minor differences compared to the final, including missing crowd sound effects and a slightly edited ending.
- The second company logo screen is for both Iguana Entertainment and Acclaim. In the final, it's just Acclaim Sports.
- The screen of dedication to Owen Hart has not been added yet (due to his death not occurring yet).
- Entrances do not function.
- Health scaling is, as in the final, tied to the match length, unfortunately it hasn't been properly balanced yet, so anything over a 5 minute match will make the opponent incredibly tough to beat, setting match time to "No Limit" gives infinite health.
- Cage Matches will crash the game.
- At the end of a match, the screen immediately cuts to black and then shows the match statistics screen. In the final, it would show the winner on the arena's titantron before cutting to black and showing the match statistic screen.
- Title screen says "Version" in green below Press Start.
- No music or sound during the title screen or menus.
Many strange characters named after types of moves are in the "Featured" section of characters.
Add more information about these removed masks.
The April 1999 build of WWF Attitude has a total of 59 masks compared to the final version's total of 43 masks.
Star Wars Masks?
Grouped in with the masks for created wrestlers is what appear to be Yoda and Chewbacca's faces.
The Blue Blazer
As this build is from about a month before Owen Hart's tragic death, it still features Create-A-Wrestler parts of his Blue Blazer gimmick. These were most likely removed out of respect as this gimmick was heavily tied to his untimely death.
Two selections of face paint were once both white and black, but later became green and black and purple and black respectively. This change was very likely because of the two selections' uncanny similarity to the face paint of Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J of the music group The Insane Clown Posse, who appeared on WWF programming in 1998.
