A prototype of WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role for the PlayStation.


The Cutting Room Floor research
  • Interestingly, it was compiled approximately the same time (ie, a month) before all 3 retail versions.
  • Different startup loading screen, featuring multiple stills of wrestlers posing.
  • No company logos, disclaimers, intro sequences etc. It just goes straight to the title from the loading screen.
  • Title screen itself is very different. Simpler, without the final's background music (from the show). Instead, the main menu music plays.
  • Many menu options (season, create a PPV, etc.) are unavailable. Also differences in the selections, themselves.
  • Different menu control symbols.
  • No menu sounds.
  • No character entrances.
  • No music during the matches, the crowd is quieter, and there are some differences in the strike sound effects.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable: Yes (as of April 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
    • Game contains debugging symbols: N/A
    • Dump was originally scrambled: No
