Twisted metal black character select screen.

Yo does anyone know if it’s possible to zoom out of the character select screen in black? I know I’m not the only one who wants to see all the detail with the  chaos in the background when you pick you character. I’ve always wanted to see everyone I played it back in 2001.

Thats not possible. That is a rendered movie clip. One size. I was able to extract the video file so you can pause it and see the detail but as far as zooming. Impossible.

Just in case these are of any interest...


Unused character select FMVs for Warhawk exist in TMB/O. I've provided screenshots of them below (taken directly from the PSS files).

Driver profile screen (\MOV\C116.PSS):

Vehicle select screen (\MOV\C116_CS.PSS):
First frame Last frame
... ...




On another note, the character portraits in story mode's loading screens normally only show the side of each character's face. But the game actually contains full loading screen portraits for every character. Widescreen hacks can be used to unveil most of their faces.

The screenshots below demonstrate a normal story mode loading screen vs a widescreen one. Please note that even though the thumbnails below both look identical, the full-size versions of those images look significantly different from each other. The image hosting service I used truncated the left/right sides of the thumbnail images it generated. Click the thumbnail links to see the full-size versions.

It's too bad, because I realize what they're asking. It may not be contained on the disk, but it was clearly part of an interconnected mural that would look really cool.

Yes Smiley!

I've just created a gallery of "clean" story mode loading screens that only show speed limit posts and full character portraits.


Gallery:

JunkyardDog Brimstone Outlaw Mr. Grimm
... ... ... ...
Roadkill Crazy 8 Spectre Darkside
... ... ... ...
Shadow YellowJacket Axel WartHog
... ... ... ...
ManSlaughter SweetTooth Minion Warhawk
... ... ... ...



The screenshots were taken in PCSX2 v1.5.0-dev-2174-g9c8a48f38. Used the GSdx plugin in OpenGL hardware mode at a custom resolution of 2520x1080.

Also created and used the following hacks to make the screenshots as useful as possible:
  • Modified the menu's aspect ratio to 21:9 in order to reveal the portraits in their entirety.
  • Hid the loading screen's background images.
  • Hid the "LOADING" box. It normally covers a portion of some characters' portraits. It seems to be tightly integrated with the loading screen's bottom background image.
  • Disabled the menu's film dirt filter since it sometimes leaves leftover dirt on top of the portraits.

You're welcome Smiley!

Although... it turns out there's even more to see. I've just noticed that the bottom of the portraits are also normally positioned off-screen.

Here's a full set of revised screenshots with a higher vertical resolution. They're at a 2.1:1 aspect ratio (2520x1200 resolution).


Revised gallery:

JunkyardDog Brimstone Outlaw Mr. Grimm
... ... ... ...
Roadkill Crazy 8 Spectre Darkside
... ... ... ...
Shadow YellowJacket Axel WartHog
... ... ... ...
ManSlaughter SweetTooth Minion Warhawk
... ... ... ...



PS:
In Black (ManSlaughter)'s portrait, his shoulders look unusually small compared to his head. Other portrayals of him in TMB's character select menu and FMVs use much larger shoulders that look more accurate.

Just wanted to point out a few more things that could be relevant to this thread...

1.
An FMV for a "locked" version of Warhawk's vehicle select screen exists in TMB. It shows a silhouette of Warhawk in a similar manner to other locked vehicles. Btw silhouette FMVs for vehicles that are unlocked by default don't exist in any known variants of the game.

Locked Warhawk vehicle select screen (with silhouette FMV):
...

Warhawk silhouette FMV (\MOV\CS16D.PSS):
...


2.
The Cutting Room Floor's TMB page contains an Unused Car Select Screen section. Their screenshot's screen appears when going to the vehicle select page for the vehicle that directly follows Warhawk. The next page's screenshot shows the same screen with YellowJacket visible, "CHOSEN" text and different stats. Not sure if "CHOSEN" was actually going to be a scrapped vehicle's name or simply something that would appear when trying to cycle onto the pages associated to already-selected vehicles. Subsequent pages show different highlighted vehicles, empty (or "Locked") text and different stats.

Vehicle #16 Vehicle #17 Vehicle #18
... ... ...


3.
There are 15 FMVs for item 2's vehicle select screen. They're among the oldest-dated FMVs in TMB (last modified on January 31, 2001). It's not very clear to me how those FMVs would've worked in practice. Some show multiple vehicles highlighted, whereas one shows nothing highlighted. None exist showing all vehicles highlighted. If those FMVs weren't meant for vehicle selection, maybe they could've served another purpose (like a vehicle unlocks menu).

The background FMV in TMBO's waiting room screen is literally of the same garage shown in items 2 and 3. Although it's from a different angle, uses darker lightning, has no vehicles on the pads and has John Doe (RoadKill's driver) visible in the frame. It might also have different objects hanging off its ceiling.

Here's a screenshot of the background FMV from TMBO's scores screen (since it's vehicle-focused and isn't very well-known).

Wow I Lloyd how how fans are still finding secrets.

Oh and just recently some one on YouTube replied about a comment I posted saying a few years back there was a video of some one playing as Warhawk but the camera angle sucked and that kept bumping into things. I wanted to know if anyone has seen it.

Also forgot to say that at this point I believe you make Warhawk playable.

I am 90% sure that the 'Garage' FMVs/pics are essentially zoomed out FMVs/Pics of the unlockable characters. If you check Jacket/Axel/Black/Warthog's background you can see that they are in a garage of sorts. My best guess is that it was changed mid-development, for there exists a short FMV of Axel coming out of the Asylum (and you can see Shadow in that Garage as well).
