Hey Homer, what does that have to do with him wanting a 1998 mod?

Hey Homer, what does that have to do with him wanting a 1998 mod?

That was what I was wondering. I'm guessing this wasn't the correct forum to put the thread in, but all I was doing was asking for some help with getting things rolling for a 1998TCMod.

Sorry if I've rubbed you the wrong way, because it wasn't my intention.

My guess is that Homer misread your post and thought that you wanted a 1988 mod (which already exists) and not a 1998 mod.

I actually created the whole 1998 Yankees team

http://www.mvpmods.com/index.php?autocom=d...p;showfile=2753

Total Classic only use the roster base on playing time so some of my face was never used like Homer Bush etc...

Plus there was a High Quality 98 World Series Yankees uniform that total classic didn't include in their mod.

Btw What happen to the preview pic of my mod?

Andy I'm upset. I had a lot more great backdrounds but I can't find them on a link which is my only hope.

But here is a few and a throwback logo file you may need to update a bit.

I know that we included most, if not all, of your faces in Total Classics. As you said, the roster was created based upon playing time, and that is the main "rule" I've used when creating rosters for the Total Classic single season mods. I'll have to see what we have for a uniform assigned to the '98 Yankees currently, because I really do like your World Series uniform.

The picture of your mod probably got lost when Trues modified the website format and moved to new forum and download tools.

Phew! For a minute I thought I'd pissed someone off lol.

@baseballfans & MILKMANANT: Thanks, they will be quite a bit of help, especially the NYY cyberfaces because the one thing I've not had much experience in game modding is with Cyberfaces.

If you look at the Total Classics 9 mod, you will probably find a fair number of faces that you will be able to use. The following teams are included which probably have material you can use:

1997 Mariners

1997 Marlins

1998 Padres

1998 Yankees

1999 Indians

2000 Mets

2001 Diamondbacks

We included an MVPEdit .mbe file with Total Classics, so if you open it up and look at these teams, you can find the cyberfaces assigned to the players. You can then extract those faces from the Total Classics 9 models.big file and import them to your models.big file. I would also suggest that you download Homer's Classic Face Pack 10.0 -- http://www.mvpmods.com/index.php?autocom=d...p;showfile=3742

There are probably faces in there that you can use as well.

I can't believe this. I was working on the roster when my computer crashed, and for some reason, I've lost all the progress I had made on the Diamondback, meaning I'm having to redo the team. :angry:

I know I mentioned it in the first post, but if anyone is up for helping with roster creation I'd more than happy because with the amount of detail I'm putting into the ratings and so on, it's taking me well over a day to get one team to be put together with ratings (Without any of the cyberface, audio, portraits stuff).

I've got a 1998 roster that's all made out. I just need to fix ratings and birthdates on some of the minor leaguers. If you want it, just drop me a PM and I can email it to you. I've also tried my hand at uniform modding, and I'm working on the audio aspects of the rest of the mod now. But the roster is the only thing I feel comfortable with releasing now.

Ok, well a the moment it seems nothing has materialized so unless the roster arrives by early tommorow I'm going to restart with creating the roster.

Not intending to sound rude but I can'l let things slide too much.

Right, well the MLB Rosters are in decent shape at the moment (Just need to sort out pitch types and some individual tweaks) and I've started moving with the portraits, however, my exams are very soon and more of my time is being sucked up by revision so I need some help with portrait production (Or any other help) with the mod.

I will be very grateful if anyone is willling!

Right, I've been working on this for the last few weeks but with my GCSE's starting in the next few days, I'm forced to stop my work on this mod temporarily as these are extremely important and I cannot afford to have my preparation reduced to work on this. Below is a little report on what I've done at this point:

MLB Rosters are put together, AAA teams are filed with the players who have played for the MLB team but not enough to be included into the 25 man teams. Haven't decided whether to fill out the rest of the AAA teams with regulars of that affiliate team or just to fill it out with very low rated generic players.

MLB Player ratings are close to completion, just need to muck around with speed attributes (Eg, 2nd Basemen with 30 speed, Catchers with 100 etc.) and contact/power stats depending on the contribution the player had (I call this the Shane Spencer rule).

AAA listed players haven't been touched as of yet, except for players who have cyberfaces in the original MVP 2005 Models.big in which they have been designated their cyberface.

All MLB players that have a cyberface in 2005 have been assigned them. I see quite a few cyberfaces in MVP 1994 (Fantastic Mod BTW) that can be used for this mod but I shall seek permission before proceeding with that.

Got bored on NFL Draft weekend and created the 25 Man Portraits for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1X. Haven't got any links to some high resolution portraits for 1998 teams so I've been using portrait photos from Getty Images for now.

Also, Done a few players appearances but got a long way yet in that department.

What I need to do:

Portraits

Background

Finish Rosters

Sort out Stadiums/Uniforms

Audio?

In other words, I am light years away from completing this but as soon as my exams are over in a month, I shall be working my **** off on this. Once again (Kinda begging here lol), if anyone is willing to help in any way, shape or form, then please do!

Hey Andy, I don't know if you have already completed the schedule file. But I had a little free time on my hands, so here it is:

1998schedule.rar

The time of games might not be exactly correct, they're based on the Retrosheet.org schedule data.

It includes the '99 and 2000 seasons in it as well.

Also, I have yet to test it, so you may want to do so before releasing it the masses.

That is absolutely fantastic mate, doing the schedule was the thing I was dreading to do the most. I'll test that after I've addressed a few issues, as I'll reveal now:

The roster is basically at completion now and I have tested in which there are no crashes ingame, which is superb. I've filled the AA, A and the empty slots in the AAA with 0 rated players creatively named "Generic Player". Came across an error where the player was unable to progress out of the team management screen due to non-filled out minor league lineups, which was okay, but then said that an MLB team which doesn't exist had lineup issues. I'm working on this now so hopefully that'll be fixed. Other than that the roster seems to be playing at a decent level.

Some good news is that the leader of the MVP 94 project has given me permission to use certain parts of their mod (The whole team will be credited, if members of that team don't want it to be included in this mod then feel free to inform me and it won't be included) so that is a massive help.

Also, tried out the Cardinal portraits which where produced in the manner of the MVP portraits (1x and transparent), although they looked pretty shoddy so I'm looking to go without transparency and try to use 2x portraits.

If any of you are wondering how I was able to make this kind of progress during my exams, it's because strangely they gave us half term smack bang in the middle of the exam period so I had a little bit of free time to crack on the roster. Just a shame I have a bloody major maths exam tomorrow :(.

Anyway, hopefully when I have all the portraits done then I'll start to post some screenies, although that will be a fare time away.

@ DYLAN: There seems to be a lock-up on the fifth day into the season, not quite sure why at the moment because I've tried turning off injuries and trades but the same result occurs. Although could be related to the reason above.
