For New Players
- Where should I start?
- For new players, we recommend "Mission Mode." You can learn the controls of the game and as well as button timings when going into a grapple.
- When do I dish out my moves?
When the wrestlers get close enough to each other, they will automatically grapple each other.
If you watch closely when you link/grab your opponent, then it's your time to strike!
- What are the controls?
- Please see the online manual for a more in depth look at the controls.
- What is FPW NET?
- FPW NET is where you can upload your own custom wrestlers and download even more wrestlers created by people all over the world.
- Why can't I join online matches or connect to FPW NET?
- To join online matches and connect to FPW NET, you must be connceted to the PlayStation™Network.
- Why isn't FPW NET showing up in my game?
- After you update the game with the Day 1 patch, the FPW NET menu will appear. Please go into your PS4™'s network settings and ensure you are connected to the internet.
- How do I update the game with the Day 1 patch?
- All patches will automatically install if you are connected to the internet. You will not be able to access online mode without the Day 1 patch, specifically.
- Why aren't the custom wrestlers I subscribed to on FPW NET in my roster?
After subscribing to a custom wrestler, you must restart your game.
Hold down the PS button, close the application, and restart the game.
When at the Main Menu, go to Edit Mode > Team Edit > Transfer Wrestler. At the bottom, under Unregistered Wrestlers, you can check the wrestlers you are subscribed to.
- What is the difference between "Pro Wrestling" and "Cement" in online matches?

"Cement" is when you are playing purely to win.
Select the style that fits your fighting philosophy.

PARTS CRAFT TEMPLATES
The Parts Craft DLC allows you to export in-game data to edit using your preferred image editing software.
These templates are a guideline grid showing the layout and size of wrestler parts.
We recommend placing the guideline on the bottom layer when editing part texture data.

PlayStation®4: Select [Upload Image to FPW Net].
Then download the texture data from the FPW Net website and save it to your computer.
Steam®: Select [Export Image File].
By default, the export folder is:
C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Fire Prowrestling World/Craft
*Use Tags to define this item as a part texture.
*[Visibility] must be set to [Hidden].
3) Edit the texture data using image editing software.
