Brick  Pro Wrestling X Editor - Import/Export Models, Textures, & Sounds!
My buddy Leftos (and I, kinda) created an import/export tool for the Pro Wrestling X: Uprising .dat files! It is pretty basic, but it works, so no more messing with texmod is needed, and we can create our own arenas!
Dev Diaries if you are bored....really bored - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HF22i_O0gk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQmeDX_mlY0

Here is a basic overview & tutorial video - http://youtu.be/9RWxC0t-hvE

Source Code is Available to those that want it!


If you prefer text tutorials, here is the one I made for inside the readme

===================================
  BACKUP ALL FILES BEFORE EDITING
Keep Regular Backups of Modded Files
====================================



***Exporting & Importing Models***

-To Export, simply select the models file
   (PWX Uprising/Data/PWXMD.dat)

   (Documents\Pro Wrestling X Editor\Models)

-You can edit these DirectX (.x) models in your choice of software (i.e. fragMOTION)
-The game can use text, binary, or compressed (.x) models

-To Import, you must first select any of the models previously exported
*You cannot import models with different names, and all models need to be imported together*

-Then you will need to select the 'Parameters' file
   (PWX Uprising/Data/PWXMDP.dat)

-The modified files will be created in your documents folder
   (Documents\Pro Wrestling X Editor)
-Move them to the game's data folder and overwrite existing files
!!!Remember to backup original files!!!

   (PWX Uprising/Data/PWXLEVTEX.dat)

-Exported textures will be located in your documents folder
   (Documents\Pro Wrestling X Editor\Textures)

-You can edit these image (.png) files in your choice of software (i.e. GIMP)
*The .jpg textures need to be saved as .png, then simply renamed back to .jpg*

-To Import, you must first select any of the textures previously exported
*You cannot import textures with different names, and all textures need to be imported together*

-Then you will need to select the 'Parameters' file
   (PWX Uprising/Data/PWXTX.dat)

-The modified files will be created in your documents folder
   (Documents\Pro Wrestling X Editor)

Wooo... Definitely glad you and Lefto's are onboard Jao. It's WTF from Operationsports, and wtferrell from NLSC. Getting ready to have my Gaming PC back up and running, so I'll try my hand at the 3d modeling, etc. Amazing work.

Did the thing to export models but far as I can tell...I got no character models?

EDIT: Whenever I drag and drop the textures file, the game doesn't even load up. What's the problem?

allmesh.x has the player models, all of them.


Make sure you replace both the levtex and tx files with the newly generated file. What did you try editing? Was it a jpg texture?

Nope, both were .PNGs.

EDIT: I tried to import the textures of the LevTX file..and the application crashes every time.

RE: Pro Wrestling X Editor - Import/Export Models, Textures, & Sounds!
If you clear out your textures folder, export, then immediately import without putting in any custom textures, will it work?
Which textures specifically are you trying to edit?
No such thing as too much info
