The MVP 2005 and Windows 10 Thread

227 posts in this topic

I think,the solution for me is to close google chrome.The stuttering seems to be less / game runs normal most of the time.

What do you mean close google chrome?  Is the game running through Chrome on your Win 10?

I don't have Chrome and nothing is open when I try to run the game.

No matter what I try, I still get the ball stutter during the game.  It will probably turn out to be a simple adjustment but no clue right now.

I have a problem running TiT with Windows 10, I got this message "Subscript used with non-Array variable", what is that?

Were you able to fix it?  I have the same thing on windows 8.1 when I install something with TiT..

 

Edit**  Nevermind, if you have this problem with 8.1, just set compatibility mode for xp srv pack 3, it works fine.. expert doesnt work, but the basic does.

Hi

II have recently upgraded to Windows 10 and even though the game is working fine my display is not a crisp as it was before even though the game is set at its maximum setting and I even tried using Windows 7 as compatablity maybe the graphics would look better but no luck......Is there a way to use the NVIDA control panel to override the game so it can look better...

I have the NVIDA GTX 980....

Thanks

Windows 10 is still playing my franchise fine, but I had to greatly reduce my FPS. It was at 320 FPS when I first fired up the game. Couldn't even see the baseballs being pitched.  When I first started MVP 15 it was scrolling so fast, and even the baseballs were spinning like crazy on the menu screen. I had to put it back down to 60FPS and it looks great with no glitches yet. I have all three of my Geforce cards burning, so I like what I see so far from 10. It even plays fine in Stereoscopic 3D on my 84 inch Samsung which is awesome looking!

What do you mean there? I've had the game run in crazy fastforward mode to, how did you do what you did here? Just curious for future references if it happens to me again. I am not on Windows 10 though, I use XP.

It won't fix your W10 problems running MVP, but FWIW, a close friend who is an IT expert told me this ...

If you are not running on a network (i.e. one PC at home) and you are running 7, stay with 7.

If you were running 7 and upgraded to 10, go back to 7.

If you are running 8, go to 10.

And if you see Bill Gates on the street, kick him in the d!ck for letting M$ subscribe to the theory of "If it ain't broke, break it."

Ok so I figured out the fix for Windows 10, and it all has to do with the  SECDRV.SYS file. Basically you have to download that file (or copy it from a preexisting earlier version of windows), drop it into your system32 drivers folder, self-sign the drive and turn on test signing. Here's the rundown (gotten from this website- I'm not that intuitive lol):

 

A workaround is to copy secdrv.sys from a windows 8 / 8.1 machine, self sign the driver, and enter into testsigning boot mode.

You can do this manually or use 3rd party programs to do it.

First copy secdrv.sys from a windows 8 machine to c:\windows\system32\drivers. You can also download it here. Same file as the one I got from a vanilla windows 8.1 install v 4.3.86.0 md5 3ea8a16169c26afbeb544e0e48421186

Then self sign the driver. You can use a program Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider to do this: http://www.ngohq.com/?page=dseo

Or read about doing it yourself here. You will also need to make the certificate.

Then enable TESTSIGNING boot mode by opening an admin command prompt and typing: bcdedit -set testsigning on

Now safedisc games should work.

You will get an annoying watermark in testsigning mode. You can remove it using this program. Or read about removing it manually here.

I tested secdrv.sys and the above programs in Windows 10 Pro x64 and confirms that it does work.

I can confirm I was having the same issue as everyone else before(either a black screen or wouldn't open at all, even after various compatibility fixes), and after doing this I got the base game of MVP to work perfectly (just built my computer recently). Getting the MVP15 mod to work is a whole other story but that's due to another issue (hint hint ;)). So glad to be playing this again, I loved this game on OG Xbox. Too bad the HDD fried during a power surge -__-

 

My first post, hope it was helpful!

Somebody needs to try this fix with a fully stable version of MVP (as in 08 or 12) to rule out problems with 15. If this is the solution, that's a helluva first post.  thanks!

By the way, I think that's the file (driver) that was causing the problems with the W7 update recently.

I have tried searching some threads haven`t had much luck...I have gotten the game to work but the problem is ever since I switched to Windows 10..Under the Resolution and Display mode in the game even though I have it set at 1280x 1024 x32 which is the maximum setting it displays the lowest which is 640x480x32 and doesn`t take when I try to change it...Which is weird cause I never had that issue before with windows 7...I have the latest nvida card which is the nvidia geforce  GTX980..Drivers are all updated...So I am not quite sure what is cause the problem..I tried running in admi mode but no luck....With all the other games I don`t have this issue...

So any help would be appreciated..

It works with the base game (as in no updated rosters). I'm assuming that it will work with the updated rosters but have not been able to test. Running the cracked version for now as I just wanted to try to get it running on Windows 10. However I experienced no gameplay interruptions for the few innings I played. My specs are:

 

Intel Core i5-4690K CPU @ 3.50GHz, 3501 Mhz

8 gigs ram

MSI Z97 Gaming 5 motherboard

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970

 

I've experienced no gameplay lagging or frame rate issues.

Now the struggle is finding a copy of the PC version that won't cost me 3 arms and 5 legs...

Hello all

Okay ..a possible solution to MVP2005 running on WIN 7-WIN10. During the Win.Sept 2015 updates Microsoft has disabled the "SECDRV.SYS most older games used for pirate protection. You can read it here:

http://www.kotaku.com.au/2015/09/new-update-for-windows-7-and-8-kills-safedisc-copy-protection/

I tried the steps in the above site and it didn't work (Win 8.1) so, all I did was uninstall the WIN Update : (KB3086255) Sept 10 2015 file, and my game started as normal. Hope it works for you.

Thanks dude! I knew someone would eventually figure something out, but I was getting frustrated.

So I'm not sure if anyone else has done it yet, but I will let you know that it does indeed work. And it is actually a fairly simple process.

I have MVP 15 working fine on Windows 10. I did have to download an app to limit the game to 60 fps. I used nvidia inspector (I have a nvidia gpu, but the app might work with others. It might also be able to solve other display issues).

Hi There,

Here is the legal, legit way to disable Driver Signature Verification in Windows 10, without any difficulty...just follow the instructions in the link below and enjoy! I I disabled driver signature verification enforcement, and all my old games now work - faster to - too fast, but they work : )

I installed W10 to my 2ndary HDD and only attempted a copy of the patched folder to no avail, but I didn't do a full install.  I did try it with the above TeamRivals fix above, but it's probably due to not installing a virgin install to begin with (duh, me). 

I'm going to try Owen sig disable thing above.

Addendum:  Ok pretty good progress. I'm not sure if it had to do with TeamRival's fix or Owen's sig disable.  I would try the latter first and then dive into TeamRival's if necessary.  I installed a fresh copy to desktop.  I copied the entire MVP15 data folder from my W7 install and replaced the basic data folder.  I was able to use the enbseries mod as well (the one that changes the lighting) and do resolution changer (but after doing res changer, I had to re-do Owens fix).  And now that I'm typing this, I did forget to do an official MVP patch, though I still have that .exe file from a previous install, so I should be able to swap it (as I was getting stuttering on walk-up/run-in cut scenes as well as on throws especially across the diamond.  I could also apply graphics enhancements through my NVIDIA control panel.  Here's some screen shots:

Something I did notice when using the F7 disable signature - if you reboot, you must re-do the disable - I'm looking for a way to permanently disable it. If you reboot using F7 - play a game, shutdown MVP 15, reboot, the game won't start - I have to reboot using the F7 move again. : (

Wow, is this really a problem? Will the game really not play on Windows 10 at all? I just read through this thread expecting a solution and it doesn't seem like there is one that allows for mods to run. How can that be? What is it about the 10 architecture that breaks that ability?

I think you're mispeaking tinpan.  Owen has a partial solution/work around, so you can play. But a permanent fix has yet to be discovered.

That's not the problem.  I'm certainly no Windows expert, but there is no reason that an OS upgrade should downgrade an older game so that you have to make concessions to play it... not in this day and age.

His problem may not have anything to do with Windows is what I am saying. The mod has a load of higher resolution files that can slow down gameplay...

Doubtful.  Multiple people are reporting this problem.  M$ simply puts out their products, especially OS's too early.  That's the bottom line.

So where's the patch?  Unless you're trying to pimp the Links game itself?
