WipEout-Game.com (http://www.wipeout-game.com/), the official site for all things WipEout, has gone live today in anticipation of the launch of WipEout Pulse.

From there you'll be able to create ship skins for use in WipEout Pulse after logging in with your PLAYSTATIONŽNetwork account. Plus you can sync your profile with the site for tedium free record entry - no typing them in by hand for the FX400 Racing League. There's other stuff, too - team back stories, wallpaper, that kind of thing.

This site will also be a bridge between Pulse and the other future wipeouts! wow ! impressed :o

It is indeed a great site, I just spent 2 and a half hours working to perfect my Assegai's new look, still not 100% finished to my satisfaction, but I must sleep, so till tomorrow.

Its late and i'm just checking out the site and here and I'm sitting here with a cup of tea feeling pretty proud of what we've done.

Pure was a massive achievement in a tight time, Pulse is everything we wanted to do back then and more, and the website for me is the icing on the cake and I particularly salute Rob and the work he has done over the past few months because right now, it proves it was worth it.

I think we did ok Bob :D

Rob, the amount of work you put in, is pretty awesome, you should be proud of yourself:clap

But Don`t forget, thank you for all the workers who designs this Pulse.

Lastly, I`m so glad to meet WipEout guys and thank you for making us welcome.

Cheers from me :beer

See you guys online!

I did actually mean to replace that, because I did it earlier this year just after I did the one for this site. :D

So it is a rip off, in so much as you can rip off yourself...! ;)

Looks like there are already cheaters in the rankings. Take a gander at the 26-second lead "kido579" has on KANDANG in the Single Race/Best Race/Venom/Metropia White table.

I know for a fact KANDANG is a far better than average player, so unless there was a transmission/interpretation error by the website, suspect h4x.

Race times that appear to have a whole lap missing have been caused by bug. We'll work on a way of filtering them out of the site.

Rest assured that the times aren't being caused by cheaters.

Flashback Jack
12th December 2007, 04:33 PM
That's reassuring, because overt hacks are one thing, but if it were possible to subtly tweak laptimes through, say, savefile editing, it would completely kill off the excitement for everyone wishing to compete on even terms.

Pulse's savefiles are encrypted, yes?

Looks like the site has been down, sorta, for a day or so. It's not allowing people to edit skins or look at the records.

infoxicated
14th December 2007, 02:30 PM
It was updated on Thursday afternoon, I know that much, and there seems to have been an issue with the deployment to the production server. I haven't been in work today, either, because my wee girl is sick and I had to stay home with her, but I cant see it being fixed until next week because whatever caused the issue will have to be properly investigated.

I can't edit skins either, must be my connection at my school. I'm not bothered about skins, anyway.

I also like how they talk about their upgraded Triakis shields when it appears that they have one of the least durable ships in the game (aside from Icaras). Perhaps Triakis is ripping them off?

infoxicated
14th December 2007, 06:17 PM
There is actually tons more backstory for each team, with each of them having a Press Release, a "databite", and an extended overview. However, this took the word count for the site up to around 12,000 words and we were running out of time to get it localised for launch, so the overviews were cut to halve the word count for a quick turnaround.

What you see on the team pages is the databite, but hopefully we'll get the overviews localised and added to the site early next year.

Rapier Racer
14th December 2007, 06:27 PM
Perhaps Triakis is ripping them off?

Not the idea I got from reading the text, I got the impression Assegai were incapable of developing their own shields to the current strength without harming the crafts agility, so they call in some amour experts, keeping in mind whatever armor Triakis/Assegai came up with would have to very light. So basically without Triakis the Assegais shield would be even weaker or the craft would be less agile like the one in Pure.

Sounds like something's eating your cookies. If you've got cookies enabled, but they expire or get deleted immediately, you'd probably see something like this. Turn off "helper" software that "cleans up for you".
Disable everything like that that you can, and try again.

That's the best I can suggest for ya'.

It seems the site is up, allowing me to upload my profile and edit skins, however, we are still unable to upload ghosts. I understand that a lot of work is going into fixing the site. I´m just leting people know the current status. Thanks for the hard work, the game is a great experience online.

Well found, Roz - Icaras are the only team whose file names were in lowercase - which is why the uppercase links are broken.

I'll get those fixed as soon as I can, but until then you can find the Icaras wallpaper here;

Hm. I see your point there - though it is still a drop-off from Pure level shielding.

was wondering, is anyone here having trouble logging into the site??? i've been trying the last few days, at home, on all 3 computers, at work, at uni...something seems to be wrong with my sign in id and password which seems to work fine on my ps3...:(

I can't access the site from the PSP either, doesn't even attempt to. Screen goes dark as though it's about to log in, but it just takes me back to the main menu. If I go through the browser from outside the game it gives me a DNS error, but can access any other site.

I can access it fine from the PC though...

EDIT: It's okay, sorted now :)

Hey Rob, I've got nothing to report but good things about wipoeut-game.com. You did an amazing job on the official site. I am glad that Sony or whoever it was made a one stop shop for our beloved series. The site's been bookmarked and feels good to check out regularly what's happening in the wild world of antigrav sports of the FX series.

PS - Especially love the team history and the logo evolution :)

Any plans to expand the site into detail with info on games from 1995-2002 (in other words, WipEout to Fusion?) Probably a bit much to ask but just wondering.

Also, get a look at the F7200 Piranha logo. Notice anything unusual about it?

One thing people have already noticed maybe is the inversion of Basilico into the tables : the white version fits with the black score and vice versa

We do plan to extend the games section to cover more of them, but it's not a high priority.

If you're referring to the spelling being "corrected" on that logo... don't look at me, I get the assets from the graphic designers! :D

Hell, yes, the manual calls it Gift as well. Bummer. Guess those translators weren't into WipEout that much. Or into games in general. ;)

EDIT: Maybe it's important to notice here: Gift in German has nothing to do with the English gift. Just like Mist and mist they mean something completely different. Gift actually is the literal translation of venom, but then you don't translate speed classes. You just don't...! :)

In the Spanish Pure version, "Rapier" was translated as "Estoque" (the name for that kind of thin sword) which was totally wrong. :(
In all other WipEouts Rapier was always Rapier even when translated.

If you're going to use this topic to report problems, please at least read the topic to ensure you're not reporting the same thing as someone else. Otherwise it's just noise.

NeXaR_QroN
28th December 2007, 11:41 AM
Please, to whoever it should be addressed:

In the spanish localization, revert the speed class names (Veneno, Estoque, Espectro) to their original english names (Venom, Rapier, Phantom), OR translate them in the game too. Having one translated and not the other is somewhat annoying to me, at least (I do prefer the original names for both, though).

Also, is the "upload ghost" feature not working, or is just a problem on my side?

Other than that two little things, great site. I love especially the team history, as some other said already.
