I found some of the car structures. I haven't had time to figure out how to add cars yet.

So we have stats... any chance we could add our own weapons or so? also, I once saw a video where a guy SUCCESSFULLY did a sound mod. I also have all the TM2 Sounds. (in My PC version, Outlaw's tazer souds too slow, anyone else got this problem?)

I would love to see a port of TM1 Outlaw replacing TM2 Outlaw.

Anyone got a copy of TM2 Thumper? I seem to have accidentally completely overwritten him with Darkside V1.

BONUS: could anyone Rip all the custom skins off of the TMA TM2 PC Skin Selector?

I've modded the PSX version of Twisted Metal 2's sounds before. The ISO I made using whatever program I used is fucked.

I can tell you right away that it's just generic PSX sound format stuff. VAB files contain the sounds, VAG files are the kind of the WAV equivalent that are contained in the VAB files, etc. It can all be edited with the leaked official Sony tools from the 90's.

Interested in playing the PC version of Twisted Metal 2 online? Ask me with a private message, or add me on Skype and talk to me about it! (You might need Skype anyway)

Nice info!

Now... I have a bigger problem... I can launch TM2, but ever since I applied a custom skin to Sweet Tooth... None of the buttons will work. I am stuck on the Main title, and the buttons will not work. I can not access Single player, or move around.

In other words... I can't play Twisted Metal 2 at all. I'm stuck looking at the Single player

Oh! I am using the TMA version.

The no input bug is caused by a registry error. You can fix it by doing the following but be VERY CAREFUL when editing the registry. Just delete the Twisted Metal 2 entry below. Messing with other parts of the registry is VERY dangerous so don't touch anything else.

Start - Run - regedit - Hkey Local Machine - Software - Sony Interactive - Twisted Metal 2 - 1.0.1 - Input and delete files (Joystick, Keyboard, Mouse)

If you really don't want to modify the registry then the only other option I can think of is to play TM2 inside a virtual machine.

Was thinking it'd be cool figuring out practical hacks for new specials, like say ricochet remote bombs or homing napalm.

if we get advanced enough, we could replicate that one missile from the 989 games that splits into multiple missiles and forms a circle... Rain, i think it was called?

Honestly, I'd also love to see how a replicating of TM4's 'Freeze Remote' could work out. It was pretty useful.

Heck, we might even be able to bring in the TMB weapons!
The Sattelite!
The Zoomy!


EDIT: I fail at edit life...
...


If anyone can do better, by all means!

EDIT: I GOT A PROBLEM.

I saw that Hi-res skin of Sweet Tooth from earlier, I took the images, made a damaged skin, made a custom Ice cream sprite, I put it in the game, made a.menu version, It works fine.

BUT... He only works fine if you are PLAYING AS HIM!

However, if He is selected as an Enemy...

The game crashes.

WHY?


Here is preview
...


EDIT AGAIN:
FIXED! I had to downscale the images to 256x256 instead of 512x512!

Were you running the memory patcher as admin? Btw I do plan on making a permanent memory patch at some point

I must have forgotten to allocate more memory for the enemy car textures. That's really easy to fix. I'll upload an updated version of the memory patcher soon.

How do I get the TIM files from turning blue and is it possible for them to appear at a higher resolution in game without being cut off?

I think I can release the Toolkit later this month. Anyway, I've been dissecting the other files such as the .RMP (ramp) files. The RMP files store slopes and surfaces for the cars to drive on. The RMP file is straight forward but unfortunately .GRP (group) file affects collision detection as well and will take some time to dissect. Thought you guys might be interested in some screenshots. If anyone happens to know anything about the GRP file let me know.

*Btw, the Toolkit will be using DirectX instead of OpenGL. It ran fine in a VirtualBox so if you have Linux/Mac then you can use the toolkit within VirtualBox. At some point we'll probably make a Linux/Mac port if there's enough demand.

I should have the permanent patcher working this weekend or next week. And I may release a small prototype of the Toolkit to see if we run into any issues.

Hey dude, I finally got around to trying out you kit you had linked, and I'm running into a problem getting a new skin to work for Mr. Slam.
His new texture size is 512x512, and I made sure it was 8 bit when I exported the image. I ran your memory patcher as an admin, and then I ran TM2. Everything runs fine, until you go to load up the level. I chose my enemies in deathmatch, and the world spins to its target, and the game crashes. Any suggestions or trouble shooting tips?

Edit: Never mind, I did it! Holy shit I made a Mr.Slam skin after wanting to do so for almost 8 years!
