Is your MVP Baseball 2005 game crashing?

527 posts in this topic

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.

i just realized the reason for the black boxes is because there is no screen for that jersey in the .fsh file

After exporting rosters to my game it crashes on start up. The logo screen appears and then it crashes. How do I fix this?

Alright, here's a crashing question for ya:

So I'm getting crashes with Julio Lugo and Willy Taveras. Games crash before they come to bat and the game crashes when I try to edit them in the roster management area. Using my powers of deduction, I'm assuming this is a cyberface issue. However, I've checked and re-checked both of these faces and they appear just fine. I even extracted them from the 07 models.big, so I don't understand why they would be malfunctioning. Also, if other people were having problems with Lugo, you know there'd be a thousand threads from Boston fans complaining about this, so I'm guessing this is a problem on my end.

So this has stumped me... anybody here care to take a shot?

EDIT -- so I've just been going through and seeing who else is crashing my game and there are a few other names -- Coco Crisp and Yorit Torrealba. I'm sure there are more, but I'm done investigating because it's a lot of work to keep starting the game up every time.

I tried changing Lugo's face back to a default face and it solved his crashing issue, so I'm guessing this is 100% a cyberface issue. Again, however, my faces all appear to be fine and a lot come straight from the 07 models.big. My rosters are perfect and I installed the faces using both TiT and Installer Thingy -- good luck solving this one.

mine works 100% perfectly when I play in dynasty mode. However it just keep crashing whenever I try to simulate in owner mode. I think the problem with mine is that this isn't a legitimate copy, downloaded from torrent, and that's why it got some flaws that may affect the game.

No, he'll get one warning about this but even that is generous because this guy is obviously an idiot.

So you actually want help after you admit that you downloaded this game illegally? Forget it. Go play Madden or something else.

Have you made sure that all those faces have the necessary attachments (metal bin and name) included? Sometimes that's a reason for random crashing.

Russell Martin catcher for the Dodgers is one.

Ok, the owner mode stadium doesn't crash with any specific team or uniform in exbition games, but when I try it in Owner mode, it crashes. Do you think this has something to do with the schedule?
