Total Classics Phase 4 F.A.Q Thread

134 posts in this topic

Posted

hey guys, like always, please post your questions in this thread regarding Phase 4 when it released.

For all the modders who are contributing, alextony, stecropper, jim, and I would like to thank all of you.

The deadline for any mods to be included in TC Phase 4 will be Sunday November 20th, 10 PM.

This will definitely be the last CLASSIC upgrade for awhile.

I however have small plans for a Total Classics : Mvpmods Legends(phase 5) which will include 3 fantasy teams -- the mod squad, forum fanatics, and mvpmods legends. That will be the only difference between Phase 4 and Phase 5.

ok so here we go--

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

What was updated?

- logos now contain more year specifics.

- All teams now have 25 man

- Position player attributes upgraded and adjusted accordingly by years

- Pitcher pitch selections upgraded. All with researched refrence material

used. (Neyer/James guide to P's)

- Over 250 player portraits upgrades and new additions

- Over 50 total cyberface upgrades and new additions

- Over 150 total player audio upgrades and new additions

- Upgraded Classic Yankee

I made something cool for TC4, when can i add it?

- we would all appreciate it if you could submit it to us by Sunday, Nov. 20th, 10PM and thank you.

When will this be released?

- Ok so we're looking at a sunday deadline and then It will be about a week of testing after that. Might as well make sure everything is good to go so this mod can last awhile.

Is there going to be a total classics website?

I swear to god, I'm still working on it. What's taking so long is creating the league stuff, graphics and all this stuff related to website by myself. But i promise --

A message from Alextony and Team Classics:

'Thank You' to ALL modders for your time and efforts and

to MVP mods for hosting and EA sports.

Play Ball!

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

I ofcourse would like to thank -- just off the top of my head -- alextony, stecropper,jim825, yanks763(oh man i really love you, if ur looking to adopt a 24 year old -- u let me know), sean-o, paul w, jogar84, Trues, Y4L,

and ofcourse, Hory.

That's just off the top of my head, i thank all the modders who contributed. Please read the txt file for total list of contributors because without a wonderful mod team, a mod like this would never get done and this game would be dead to me! DEAD TO ME WITHOUT TOTAL CLASSICS!

The TCP4 mod will begin its testing to make sure all files

are working and working together. There will be a modification

or two most certainly. Then a realistic release date of between

Dec. 4 - 7th

It has taken a bit longer but with all the last minute additions

should be well worth it :wink:

Just for reference, the greatest joy I've had in this game is getting a high-inside hanging changeup to Javy Lopez at Fenway. Every single time a pitcher goes inside, it gets annihilated 500' over the Monster. Truly a great experience.

Thank you all so much.

But yet you gave me permission to convert the Total Classics audio awhile back, which sort of leads us to believe that a conversion would be nice and seeing how most mods are for pc anyways, xbox users are left out on a lot of things...

If you give me a list of 50 players, I can do the loading screens as seen in the MVP 2006 forum for TC4, as a supplemental package.

Stipulation: The list has to include at least two Astros. And no Joe Morgan.

It's taken a longer than expected because of Fuzz' sudden retirement and his transfer of all TC assets to Ted Dibiase. I have to say that it caught all of us on the TC team by surprise..... :o

AstroEric - If you need another player, I'd suggest Graig Nettles (a personal favorite of mine growing up) who had a great glove and won the 1976 AL Homerun title with 32 (!) homeruns.....

Personally, I think #50 should be Mr. Baseball, Bob Eucker. It'd be great to see all these stats from the best players in history, then Eucker's .200 career BA.

But, that's just me. Ooh, or you should put in the midget that Veeck had for a game.

Somehow I don't think #34 fits the Total Classic Theme.

What about Nellie Fox or Warren Spahn?

Or did Ted Dibiase buy his spot on the list. :D

Working with Mr. Dibiase has been a bit more "challenging" than working with Fuzz ever was.

Mr. Dibiase had thought about outsourcing the beta testing to a firm in Bangalore, India (to cut costs), but luckily the TC team banded together and we were able to convince him to keep the testing on U.S. soil.

It shouldn't take us too long (hopefully) to finish the testing. Once we're done and it's released, you can consider TC4 the TC team's Christmas (or Hannakuh or Kwanza or Festivus or Saturnalia or Winter Solstice or [substitute suitable seasonable holiday here]) gift to the MVPMods community. :D

thanks nyy_rich, none of this could be done without the team.

i think everyones going to be really satisfied with tc4. definitely better than TC3 in so many ways you'll notice almost immediately after the first game.

didn't get any themes in this time around, hopefully astroeric will take care of that.

yeah jim didn't like the pitching grips initially because he said it blurred out, but when he brought the in-game resolution to 1024 x 768, he was able to see it very big and clearly.

the screenshot doesnt do it must justice, it looks much better in game.

Why does the installer say it estimates 4-5 hours for the extraction/install to complete? I cancelled out after about 10 mins and 2% done...
