right now as far as we know u can thru texmod but u have to run the game thru texmod as well,if there was a way to open the portraits iff file itself it would make things alot easier

I thought, maybe all players portraits are in the portrait.cdf? Just because this file weights 185 mb... Or maybe I'm wrong...

Ok, I've found texmod thread, have red it... now I understand how to use it. DonSPa, thx for your post))

But... What about guys who has "no foto" portrait? Seems, it's the same for everybody

i thought the same too but if u change one that doesnt have a photo it will make all of those have the same face,i allready tried that.I wrote a email to a couple of people for 2k to see what program would be used to change portraits but they answered with that they wont promote modding of thier game so i guess we are stuck with going thru texmod which sux having to run another program just to see changes in portraits

...they wont promote modding of thier game...

when will (more) gaming companies finally realize that user-friendliness (i.e. modding) only keeps customers more interested in their games and keeps them coming back for more?!

*sigh*

there's a very good reason MVP 2005 (and even 2004) are still going strong to this day. community modding ... is it!

As you see on picture this guy not only changed a cyberfaces of Johnny Damon & Joba Chamberlain, but their trading cards too. Tradingcards.iff is unable to open by IFF editor, and it has tradingcards.cdf file just like for portraits. We still don't know how to open *.cdf files, but somehow this guy did it. That's the key, I believe!!!! :excl:

So what? Does he have any tools or something? Would you ask him, DonSPa (if you can of course), or I should do it? You now, I have a some time and desire to make something like that

Oh, well, that's bad news... <_<

I spoke with my friend, who's lecturer in our Politecnico. Maybe he can give to his students a task to desipher .cdf files or maybe create a tool we need... I do not promise, but ... Russian programmers can do miracles))

that would be nice if they could because if they can do that task then maybe they could figure some other areas we need modded bad

Ok, another question, where I can get high quality player portraits? Getty Images has many, but GI only trade them :D :D :D :D

u can get them thru each team's official site and going into the rosters and click on the players names and most of the time u can get an updated portrait.Some players havnt been updated but u can sometimes go thru yahoo fantasy ,sportsline or even espn and find an updated one

I know. But... Team sites have no player portraits in their profiles, only in-game photos, other sites have 60x80 resolution portraits, which are too little for quality facepacks. I don't even speak 'bout cybers :huh:

I've found http://www.baseballboss.com/ where actually we can get players portraits. There is no 2009 fotos yet (I believe they will be release soon), but they are free and big enough. At least something...

I assume this is what you meant given that this is posted in the correct forum, but just to confirm, this works for MLB 2K9?

Interesting. Probably not a game-saver, but definitely an improvement.

Thanks for the heads-up! :)
