Awesome work Pac-Man and StepS! Great documentation too. What a nostalgia trip. I'll be installing both of these this weekend!

I uploaded it to WMDB.
I wrote WWPA's weapons on the n wiki.
Nice to meet you. :)
Can I help you?
I can read Korean. And there is a knowledge of OW, WWPA.
You may ask.

OW are better for old korean version. July 22, 2004 korean version is no fun.

Because July 22, 2004 korean version is only 2 schemes + 15 maps. :'(
"before July 22, 2004 korean or japanese version" is 6 schemes + 29 maps + support 1024 x 768 resolution + English user interface. :) And no weapons shop. No small size maps. No antisink.

If you can't have a old korean version, it's better to use the another language version.

Chinese version not English UI. But has avatar system.
Japanese version has English UI. But not avatar system.

Thanks. I assume you've already seen the builds that I have?
The problem is that we only have the "small" Korean edition of the game. The newest version I think is China, but the server tool does not specifically support that one (yet). The biggest one that we are missing is the Chinese WWPA (WWPAC_setup.exe) which is gone from all archives.

That reminds me, I still haven't finished extracting the 38 WWPA Mission maps. They were in combined mission archives (scheme + map + something else all in one). It is pretty easy to extract with a hex editor, then open the IMG in Worms Armageddon to resave as PNG.

I could look into it again if I have more free time in the future. If you have any extra installers that we don't, please share them with me as well.

Dec 30 2013 23:59:44 <StepS> windowed mode isn't the only thing you need about frontend
Dec 30 2013 23:59:49 <StepS> you need it to be actually bigger
Dec 31 2013 00:00:13 <StepS> it actually is very small on my 15-inch full HD screen
Dec 31 2013 00:00:25 <StepS> while running at 640x480 or stretched mode makes it fuzzy
Dec 31 2013 00:00:44 <StepS> this problem has been around since the Worms Armageddon's release and no one has even tried to beat it

I didn't play, but the mission map will be interesting, too.

I already seen your builds.


oncsetup_1.13:
2003/Mar/14 OW chinese edition.

OWJSetup_030703:
2003/Jul/03 OW japanese edition.

owsetup:
2004/Aug/12 OW korean edition.(small edition.)

patch_cn_2.00.57_to_2.00.61:
2004/Apr/30 WWPA chinese update file.

wwpasetup:
2004/Jul/27 WWPA korean edition.


Have you seen another WWPA's map? WWPA thinks the current build is enough. I think there are no more updates WWPA. The last main update of Korean WWPA will be June 8, 2004.
I'm trying to find another builds. But Unfortunately, it's hard to get another build in Korea.

And I updated OW page of n wiki and added WWPA page. If you're interested, read it.

I found another build. OW 2004/Feb/13 Chinese build.(41.5mb)

password=ze3h

This build has 6 schemes, 39 maps. ;D

I think there is a OW 2004/Aug Chinese build with 44 maps somewhere.

etc:
wasetup.exe(118.1mb) is W:A with user maps & Chinese UI graphics.
WWPAC_setup.exe(53.7mb) is old build. Files to the Recycle Bin.

Thanks a lot for those! Uploaded oncsetup1.exe and WWPAC_setup.exe to my builds folder. Currently they don't run with the launcher, possibly a locale check (can be patched), I will investigate later.

I have confirmed that the WWPAC_setup.exe is the one I was looking for. All hashes matched in the torrent file that I had. Thanks again.

I will also let you know when I extract more of the WWPA mission maps. This one for example was from the 5th walking challenge.
Hopefully this week.
