Cool.  I found the address for the Black BG color (turns out it was 4 bytes), so now you don't need to use Artmoney to recolor it.  You may have to pause/unpause the game to get the cheat to start working again (sometimes the color gets changed).

Awesome! What else are you going to look for? I just fired the game up today and it's loads better than the original as far as the gameplay goes. I don't really like the backgrounds as much as PR1 even though they have a lot more going on. And the human characters really pull you out of the immersion. Claymation works for the dinosaurs but looks terrible with the human characters.

Though the better quality rips actually make it easier to tell the Dinos are clay too :p but I still want to get the newer sprites!

Not sure.  I want to see if I can either get the animation mod to work better or find some other way to make different sprites to display.

Edit: I didn't have any luck with it, so I asked adriano_gt if there was anything else he thought I should add to make the list more complete for sprite ripping.  He suggested controls for P2, so I added those.    Also, the BG was flickering when I recently tried the color mod, so I went poking around and I think I found something to take care of that.  I'll come back to this if there's anything someone's having trouble getting.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iy6gtTMa8_w I did a playthrough this past week as Talon.

Also, some of you know this already, but for those that don't the game has suicides for almost all the characters. Chaos and Arik are the only ones missing them iirc. Blizzard and Diablo do have the inputs coded but they're unfinished. Others have glitched animations, such as Slashfang. Necrosan, and Talons. Also, even if you use a Suicide, it still counts as a win by the game so I dunno what the point of them is really.

Speaking of Necrosan, If he were just intended to be just a boss, He wouldn't have a fatality and a Suicide. None of the CPU opponents in Primal Rage or Primal Rage 2 use finishers on you while playing.  I dunno if it's working or not but Necrosan also has an ending in the game code. And it's actually legit text too. Don't wanna spoil it for you guys. If you want to read it, there's a youtube video that has it and also it's on Gruntzilla's site.

As for the endings in general. None of the dino-god endings are actually working, except for SlashFang's. SlashFang's ending is the only one that loads if you beat the game as him. All the other dinogods use their respective Avatar's ending as a placeholder. Possibly because most of them don't have ending pictures. Chaos has a picture for his ending, but for some reason, his ending isn't displayed (Shank's is instead). There are a few dino gods, such as Diablo, that don't have any ending text at all in the code.

Other unused stuff includes Shank's Bio and at least two stages which aren't coded in and don't have proper palletes. One of them looks like it belongs to Diablo and may be what the unused stage music tracks were intended for.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMTQUV8SAvI you can see those stage assets in this video. The other stage is probably Slash Fang's version of Xiao Ming's level. There's also two additional stages which are only used in two player mode despite being intended for a respective Dino God. They seem to use placeholder tracks as well. Sauron's Seawall and Vertigo's Alter are the two 2p exclusive stages.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEB87aXNLDw
Slashfang doesn't have an actual fatality, but there is an animation for one:
Only the Avatars have decapitation sprites, so chances are the fatality either only was supposed to work on the Avatars, or the dino gods didn't have sprites made yet.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6b207u2G0D8
Blizzard has the sprites for his Primal Rage 1 fatalities intact. Brain Bash seems to just be a leftover as the sprites associated for the smashed heads of the dino gods were never converted and still use the Primal Rage 1 color format as you can see in the above video. Despite what Green Geode says, I believe this was the case for Brain Bash. Redemption on the other hand was probably meant to be included as it has an updated animation for the soul leaving the body.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DomUym8Y0mo
Chaos has his Golden Shower Fatality animation in the ROM and it has a new peeing FX as you can see in the video. Also worth noting, the second outcome of the fatality that GreenGeode Posted in the video is probably meant to only be associated with Necrosan's fatality.

Gruntzilla94 still works on a more stable version ...
We must keep in mind that this game was never released, maybe some things are really unfinished

*facepalm* The stuff I mentioned above is all things that are in the data but not actually coded into the game.  And for the record, GreenGeode was actually working on the game too at one point. Like I said, he made a sprite viewing/ripping program which he used to get the unused animations shown above from and unfortunately, for whatever reason he won't release it. Either he's not active on youtube anymore or he simply doesn't want to.

wow he finally got the game working. That is some incredible reverse engineering. I tried to rip Necrosan from this youtube video since GreenGeode gave up on PR2, but then I got too busy being unemployed.


If anyone is interested in ripping the necrosan/slashfang sprites, I've got an unfinished sprite sheet right here if it helps. I'm not planning on working on it until after I get my bachelor's degree. it probably won't help since we have the actual game now, and these rips are from a youtube vid... but i'm guessing it has some sprites that are not executed in game, since i've seen no footage of necrosan's flying mechanism other than the sprite study youtube vid above.

What kind of mods are available for this game and what do they do? I can't seem to find any online.

Also, how are so many people playing as Sauron etc? I don't see any of the original ones on the character select screen.

To play as the Dino-god and the Meta-god, right? Does the mod have anything else apart from that? ..Like, say a fix for the hang when 2p inserts a coin for a continue etc.
