Local player pos

Map coordinates, seen in Debug mode with the Local Player Pos HUD display allows the moder to find out where items can be placed in a modified Dead Rising 2 game.

The floor is around .1 less than what is shown on the Local Player Pos for Chuck.

For example,

  • the display shows -1.1 height of chuck
  • to place items on the floor at the same location, the moder would enter -1.0.

Rotation and coordinates Edit

RotationEdit

Rotation screenshotsEdit

For the old attempt to explain see: Hummer coordinates
First coordinate of four
Dead rising first coordinate of four
Second coordinate of four
Dead rising rotation second number
Third coordinate of four
Dead rising third coordinate of four
Fourth coordinate of four

Coordinate numbers can be negative and decimals Edit

Coordinate numbers can be negative.

Coordinates can also be decimals, for example: (-.708,.43,1,0)

Any number above 3 is recognized as 3.

Any number below -3 is recognized as -3.

0,0,0,0 displays the default rotation of the item, but no other item in the txt file after this file is displayed.

Dead rising rotation second number fourth number is zero
Dead rising rotation first number fourth number is zero
Dead rising rotation third number fourth number is zero
  • If the fourth number is zero or is missing with only three number total, it overrides the first, second or third number and the rotation is always the same.


CoordinatesEdit

  • Location = "x-coordinate, y-coordinate, z-coordinate"
  • x coordinate: vertical placement (On the map right to left, east to west)
  • y coordinate: altitude (lower to higher)
  • Z coordinate: horizontal placement (On the map down to up, south to north)
x , y , z
East-West Height North-South

Coordinates of all stores areas and items Edit

How to find coordinates of stores and areasEdit

In datafile.big is the .txt files for each area and EVERY item that Chuck and other characters can interact with.

As Chuck walks into an area, the HUD (HUD_Worldlocation.txt) tells the player the name of the location.

For example, in the food court, when chuck walks into Cheesecake Mania the coding in [b]food_barn.txt[/b] indicates when the HUD at the bottom left of the screen should display "Cheesecake Mania":

cPolygonLarge CheesecakeMania_Box
{
	Height = "4.0"
	NumVertex = "7"
	Text = "900"
	Vertex0 = "80.226,-1.5,-252.041"
	Vertex1 = "79.679,-1.5,-251.814"
	Vertex2 = "80.785,-1.5,-248.518"  
	Vertex3 = "71.903,-1.5,-245.855"  
	Vertex4 = "66.369,-1.5,-249.022"
	Vertex5 = "64.057,-1.5,-257.108"
	Vertex6 = "77.901,-1.5,-261.493"  
}

The Vertex locations are the coordinates/boundaries of the store. There are 7 corners in Cheesecake Mania.

Text = "900" is the text "Cheesecake Mania" which is display on the HUD.

If graphed, these points can show the exact parameter of an area.

Excel coordinates of all areasEdit

Excel file and map of all areas on scatter chart

Files are found in text files in data/datafile.big for example:

  • Americana Casino coordinates are found in data/datafile.big/americana_casino.txt


In Dead Rising 2 coordinates of the arena backstage are found at PC file data/datafile.big/gs_biketutorial.txt. Several items which are not usually in a normal game are found on this map. Off the Record does not have this file.

For Off the Record's Uranus Zone, the file is data/datafile.big/theme_park.txt

Waypoint files Edit

Every area has a waypoint file, located in data/datafile.big. These files include:

  1. the full coordinates of the area
  2. save points
  3. teleport to other areas

List of waypoint filesEdit

Save pointEdit

The waypoint creates a save point, for example in data/datafile.big/waypoint_americana_casino.txt one of the urinals in Americana Casino where Chuck the Role Model takes place.

cTriggerVolume SaveUrinal1
{
	ActionActorRotation = "-0.829"
	ActionPoint = "-457.450,-4.725,-22.941"
	ActionType = "4"
	AnimationChooser = "1"
	DisplayName = "55094"
	Height = "2.0"
	InteractButton = "true"
	IsStatic = ""
	ItemName = ""
	Level = "LEVEL_AMERICANA_CASINO"
	Location = "-458.192,-3.716,-22.420"
	Radius = "2"
	Rotation = "0,0,0,1"
	Vertex1 = "-1,0,1"
	Vertex2 = "1,0,1"
	Vertex3 = "1,0,-1"
	Vertex4 = "-1,0,-1"
}

Teleport locationsEdit

The waypoint teleports Chuck to a new area, for example in data/datafile.big/waypoint_americana_casino.txt is the following:

cTriggerVolume ParadiseWalk
{
	ActionType = "3"
	DisplayName = "847"
	Height = "2.0"
	InteractButton = "true"
	InteractionRadius = "3"
	ItemName = "South Strip"
	Level = "LEVEL_FORTUNE_EXTERIOR"
	LevelSpawnPoint = "EntryAmericanaCasino"
	Location = "-294.952,-3.342,-0.124"
	Radius = "11"
	Rotation = "0,0,0,1"
	Vertex1 = "-1,0,1"
	Vertex2 = "1,0,1"
	Vertex3 = "1,0,-1"
	Vertex4 = "-1,0,-1"
}

There are also spawn points in each individual text file for each area.


cWaypoint SURVEdit

The waypoint files such as, data/datafile.big/waypoint_americana_casino.txt

cWaypoint SURV... has points in the entire area, including all the stores inside.

Dead rising with waypoints

Slot Ranch Casino and Food Court in Food Barn, with cWaypoint SURV points


It is uncertain what this points are used for. For example, here is one of hundreds of points for Royal Flush Plaza:

cWaypoint SURV313
{
	Location = "-87.90,6.38,-47.81"
	Name = "SURV"
	Type = "0"
}
