Fire Pro Wrestling animations?

Postby sichomeboy » Sun Mar 19, 2017 9:54 am

First off,I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum. Please feel free to move it if so.

I want to ask, is anyone here into or has ever been into Fire Pro wrestling animations? Any animators here, like me? It was a small online community similar to this board here from about 1999-2003, and it was all primarily based off of Super Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium for the SNES.

Here's a video of some of the work captured from that 1999-2003 era. https://youtu.be/qB1FgNXemDc

If no animators, any wrestler editors for that game, SFPWXP for SNES? I'd be much interested in some of you guys giving that game a crack. My favorite of the series... but I maybe a little biased. ;)

I used to animate, but I wasn't great at it. I like to think that I was was kinda OK. When I read your post I searched for my old animations site, but it's gone now, and with it all the animations I had. I also made a few backgrounds and crowds.

Hey man, I remember your name... I think I have some of your stuff. In fact i think I was looking at a couple of your arenas like a week ago. I'm like the preserver of that scene. :) I was [sic]/HomeBoy7777 not sure if that rings a bell. ;) Good to see you, if you stumble upon any old anis/work somehow please feel free to share with me. :)

I remember seeing the animations when I first got into Fire Pro as a whole(of course that was just all the old things, nothing new at the time. Around '07 I want to say) and being amazed. I always found myself wanting to get into the hobby but never knew where to even begin with it.

Well I guess no other animators... that's ok. Anyone here into editing for X Premium though? If you haven't played it I'd think you guys might be surprised how much it holds up to Returns.

Yes, I remember you. And also Maul, Battery Acid and others. It was a fun time. I made a few front style rings and arenas. The last I found about was a site with booyah in it's name. I remember I found most of my stuff there, but that's gone now. I think that is a shame because I lost everything I had and made. It's good to see you. You are welcome to stick around. This is a great community.

Whats the link to your old page? Yeah sfpwxp.booyah is also down nowadays, but the latest board still exists, which some people do occasionally still check in. http://sfpwxp2.proboards.com/ Also some older animators who never found that board were popping up on some of my youtube comments, so it's kinda neat (I think) that after all these years most of all of us still have some fond memories of doing that stuff when we were younger. I still wish I could go back in time and save as much as I could.

SFPWXP Dungeon. Any content besides my actual save has been dead for years though.

Wow haven't heard those names in awhile... Yeah I do remember you guys were like some of the "veterans" when I came in... wow. So this IS the place where some of you have flocked to. Good to hear from you too. I'll check out your link too, thanks. Ha, looks like your old SRM link still works... I'll be checking that out. ;)

perhaps my eyes are playing tricks on me in my old age. ;)

it only gets brought up in places like my introductory post as ST at FPC or when reminiscing about the SFPWXP scene.

Unfortunately none of your arenas/animations are accessible :( but still, maybe a trip back in time for you :)

I check that board every now and then. I have browsed through it looking for my stuff, but I can't find anything. If you have anything made by me, I would appreciate it if you drop me a link.

Thanks. I'll make sure to cry while looking at it, remembering when I was younger and wondering where time went.

Oh. Well I'm glad I found this place... kinda makes me want to animate or maybe just make a new, updated, current SRM or something, ha.

I was never a part of this community (it was a thing before I was even regularly on the internet), but this is without a doubt the coolest thing ever. Not just in terms of content, but I didn't know you guys found such value even in Super Fire Pro. The guys in this community seem to find infinite replay/reuse value in all things Fire Pro.

EDIT: I did some digging into the scene. I found a few old animations, but pretty much everything from 2001 and prior is dead. I even found Kactus Ken's old webpage, and it has his whole history on there. Apparently his animation of Vader giving Flair a Vader Bomb was the first animation...wonder when that was made?

Anyway, I thought it would be nice to share this still. Kactus's site says this still was the first one ever made using Super Fire Pro, so I guess it bears significance to this thread.
