Is your MVP Baseball 2005 game crashing?

Since this game has been released, this entire community has worked countless man-hours to provide the most realistic MVP Baseball experience possible and have tried to provide the most true-to-life representation of baseball. Within the game's boundaries of course.

However, we, the modders, are aware that many of our completed projects may not function with system setups that are not our own. This has always been an issue, especially with EA themselves whenever they develop a PC title. They have to sacrifice quality for compatibility, which is something that is very hard to do for a lot of modders all around the EA community. We strive to make mods of the highest quality, however at the same time, it is a challenge to ensure that our work gets along with everyone's computer.

With this said, here are some quick reference guides as to what to look for when you are experiencing crashing and distorted gameplay. It's to the best of my knowledge so if you have any other possible solutions, feel free to edit this thread.

1) My game loads the splash screen but crashes to the desktop

This may be an issue with mods that deal with either the 3D model, catcher/fielder glove update, as that file is the one that loads first.

2) My game crashes before I even get to the main menu

Possibly a roster issue or something wrong with the frontend art.

3) I see black boxes where I should be picking my uniforms

This can be caused by a uniform update and an incompatible uniforms.big file. Be sure that the uniforms.big file you download or use is compatible with the uniform packages you have installed.

4) My uniforms have transparent boxes

This usually happens with many low-end video cards that do not support a feature called "Hardware Texture and Lighting". What you want to do is go to your Options menu while the game is paused and go to your Display options.

Disable this little thingy here:

That's all I have for now. Anybody have any solutions, feel free to follow the same format I have it, continuing from #5 onward

when you see these, take note of who they are. it could be a roster issue or the face itself. let us know when you see them so we can take a closer look.

How about...

MVP crashes as my game loading bar reaches 100%?: Problem is likely stadium or overlay.

I've also seen crashes when a given batter steps up to bat = Roster problem.

Possible uncompressed portrait as well. Also, low memory could be the culprit.

This can be caused by a uniform update and an incompatible uniforms.big file. Be sure that the uniforms.big file you download or use is compatible with the uniform packages you have installed.

FYI I had a problem with LA's alternate unis screens displaying so I checked your archive in your exe. The 16.fsh was missing the valid object. Dunno if this applies to others blank screens yet. I just reimported the one off the disc into TiT and it showed correctly.

KC, could you explain that Anti-Aliasing thing please?

Anti-aliasing is the technique of minimizing the distortion artifacts known as aliasing when representing a high-resolution signal at a lower resolution.

It's a technique used by video cards to remove the "staircase effect" with jagged edges. Here's an example:

Here's the same picture with 4X anti-aliasing (smoothing out edges):

That file contains the cyberfaces for almost every player in the game, uniforms and fonts as well. It's essential to actually playing the game.

Here is my problem, regardless what team and which stadium I am playing. Whenever I try to play a second game, the game will load, and when it just about to start, it crash back to the desktop. I can play one full game fine, it is the game I am trying to play after that is having this problem
