***SECTION 1: WHAT IS RE-COSTUMING?***

No matter how many updates Spike may create, there is always
something wrong with some wrestler's costume in FPD. It might
be that one of them now shave their head, or there is a duo 
with the same color clothes. Sometimes, Spike justs likes to 
color a costume the wrong ways. This FAQ is to help change 
the colors of those wrestlers so they look close to their 
real-life counterparts or for a much updated look. 

NOTE: In order for me to get the most accurate portrait of 
the character, I use recent pictures of them in order to get 
an idea on what to change. This is a short FAQ, so If more
explination on certain topics is needed, please tell me.





***SECTION 2: CONTROLS AND MENU***

NOTE: If you do not know where Re-Costuming is, first go to 
EDIT MODE. It is the 6th option, right above the exit option.
OTHER NOTE: If you know how to use Re-Costume, skip this chapter.

Look for your wrestler and choose the costume you want to change.

After choosing the wrestler, you will open up a page identical 
to the Appearance Menu in Wrestler Edit. Here is where the fun 
begins:

FOR COLOR:

All those boxes on the top represent certain body parts to color. 
There are 16 sets. 7 on top, 9 on bottom. Unlike Wrestler Edit,
you cannot change any of the boxes individually, they are changed
by pre-set colors from Spike. You cange the pre-set colors
with the L and R triggers.

L: One number ahead
R: One number behind 

The number of colors range for each body part and not every color
appears with the same number. 

You will see the color number in the bottom where it says Pre-Set 
Color number.
Example:
        ___________________________
       |                           |
       |     R: (Red)              |
       |     G: (Green)            |
       |     B: (Blue)             |
       |---------------------------|
       | Color Clipboard           |
       |     [] Individual Shade   |
       |     [       ] Color Set   |
       |---------------------------|
       | Pre-Set Color Number      |
       |   Set: Number             |
       |___________________________|

Once you choose the color, press A to confirm.

My set up for the color changes will look like this:

---------------------------------------
| 1 | 2 |  3  |  4  |  5  |  6  |  7  |
------------------------------------------
| 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13| 14 | 15 | 16|
------------------------------------------

The numbers inside will correspond to the pre-set number need for 
the set. If there is a "no" in a box, it means that you don't have to 
change it

------------------------------------------------------------------

FOR BODY PARTS:
It is the box to the left with all the kanji. For more information
on parts, read the FAQ/Movelist made by Icemaster.

***SECTION 3: WRESTLERS NEEDING A COLOR CHANGE***

I have organised the list by what federation the wrestler is 
from.

===========

wore during his first run in New Japan.

-JYUSHIN "THUNDER" LIGER
COSTUME TO CHANGE: 4th Costume
NOTE: This changes the costume to Liger's normal colors and footwear. 
It cannot be totaly perfect as there are a few limitations in FPD 
that prevent it. It still looks great though.
COLORS:
--------------------------
| no |2 or 5|no|7|87|4|10|
--------------------------
|3|7|6|7|2|5|no|no|15|
----------------------

Note that his gloves will be a bit too yellow, so I advise anyone to
decide whether you'd like to keep it that way or to try a white or
light yellow color.
BODY PARTS:
KNEE:  Leggers
ANKLE: Leggers

----------------------------------------------------------------------
-EL SAMURAI

up Goldberg's costume along with his head. You only need his head.

***SECTION 6: SOME IMPORTANT FACTS***

1. Only one re-costume per pre-made character. If you want to make 
another costume, you either have to delete the one you made or make 
a whole new wrestler.

2. The Re-Costuming is only for pre-made wrestlers in the game. 
Edits are fixed in Wrestler Edit mode.

3. You cannot change a color box indiviually. They must be changed 
by pre-set color numbers.

4. This FAQ is only for pre-set characters, not new versions of the same
one or chracters completely made by you.

5. The ReCostume file takes up 21 blocks of memory.





***SECTION 7: FAQ***
Q: Where can I contact you for suggestions, feedback or erros I saw on 
your FAQ?
A: I'd preferably would like to be contacted via the GAMEFAQ FPD board.
You can also contact me by E-mail, but I get tons of spam, so please 
write FPD RECOSTUME as header.

Q: Is there an easier way to do this?
A: No

Q: Can you help me create a wrestler?
A: No, as I only help fix costumes. Go to another FAQ writer.

Q. I messed up! What can I do?
A. One of two things:
   1. Re-load the Re-Costume file
   2. Click on another costume of the wrestler and that will
      over shadow it.

Q: Some of your wrestlers need different movelists. Will you make them?
A: This just an FAQ to make the characters look updated, I'm not
planning to evolve this FAQ into an Edit one.

Q: If you made the first Lyger costume against Muta, can't you make 
Lyger-Muta?
A: I could, but the waist Kaiser Suit will come up and it will look
strange. I'll think about it. 

Q: [Insert Wrestler] needs a few more parts/more colors. Where can I 
get them?
A: Unfortunately, some wrestlers aren't picture perfect due to FPD's 
limited edit system and colors to choose from. If you really want to 
go in-dept, getFire ProWrestling Z. The update can help you obtain a 
closer-to-perfect character with its new layering system.

Q. Speaking of FPZ, will you make an FAQ for it as well?
A. Probably look foward to it near the summer.
