The MVP 2005 and Windows 10 Thread

227 posts in this topic

Game crashes every time I try to play a game in owner mode. I'm running it on a barely used year old PC with Windows 10. Put 2 days into trying to get this to work and I'm about done. How many cracks do I need to make th MVP 13 mod work? Like I'm getting frustrated looking through these forums and finding no damn answers.

What the heck do you mean by "cracks"?

Well first off....coming on here and on your first post making it seem like it's this site's problem that there are no answers to Windows 10 compatibility with MVP is a bad way to start your tenure.   If anything contact M$ and ask them why they released an OS that's not compatible with older games in some cases.   Good luck with getting through to somewhere there on that.

Secondly, if you're coming on here and talking about cracks for the game, you're breaking the TOS and risk getting banned and then have no where to go to discuss support for this game, other than MVP Caribe.  So you could then take your 2 years of basic Spanish and then head to that site for assistance.  So good luck with that too.

Thirdly, there are answers throughout this thread, it's just that you don't like the answers.  Sometimes with computers.... and you may want to be sitting down for this next part .....  there are absolutely no solutions after a certain point in time because the technologies just don't match up and you need to do an alternate answer or a work around.

Just a note. If you are running a no cd crack then I'm pretty sure owner mode won't work.  I don't play owner mode but that's the consensus I've seen online.   I assume that's what you are doing.  If you want to play owner so bad then break out your discs.  If that's not the issue. Good luck

ZERO cracks, because any more than that and you will get no support here.

As far as getting "no damn answers", you're trying to get a 12 year old game running on 2016 hardware and the latest operating system.  How many other games from 2005 can you run on your PC?

Not sure if you mean me but I was trying to tell him why his game may not be working.  That's the feeling I have at least. I've been open about using a no cd because I paid 85 gd dollars for this game online about seven years ago and I only break mine out when absolutely necessary.  I don't condone the piracy of any game but I do condone perserving what I have in a format that's generally antiquated and in short supply now.

No, I wasn't referring to you.

Then MVPEdit is not set to the same folder where those portraits reside.  Change folders.

I've got MVPEdit set to the data folder and the 2017 portraits show up in MVP edit, but when I play the game, older portraits show up (2012 Mod pics maybe?). Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm having issues with the game crashing and I think it's due to the portraits being off.

Portraits are portraits... shouldn't cause crashes like cybers.  With portraits you could conceivably set the same portrait for everyone and it not crash.  I think you have something else going on.

See the 4-1/2 pages above please.  This is actually more of a Windows 10 thing than it is an MVP thing.

Some additional info I ran across:

Partitioning: http://www.partition-tool.com/resource/windows-10-partition-manager/partition-hard-drive-windows-10-for-free.html

Installing a bootable second drive: http://smallbusiness.chron.com/add-second-hard-drive-set-up-dual-booting-70976.html (they do warn that "When setting up a dual boot, you must install the older operating system FIRST. For example, if you already have a computer with Windows 7, you can install Windows 8 to another partition or hard drive to create a dual-boot setup. However, installing Windows 7 to a computer that already has Windows 8 WILL NOT work. When installed by itself, Windows 7 uses an older version of the Windows boot manager." --- This does work.... I have installed Windows 10 on my secondary smaller HDD as I had Windows 7 on my primary HDD).   So technically, you could wipe your HDD entirely.  Install Windows 7 and THEN install Windows 10 on a secondary HDD.

Hi folks,

I'm new to the forum, and came here hoping someone had found a solution. I know what the problem is, at least for an unmodded game:

MVP Baseball 2005 uses SafeDisc v2, which uses a file called SECDRV.SYS to validate the disc. This normally shipped with Windows, but Microsoft appears to have pulled it from Windows 10. Every game I have tested that uses this form of copy protection exhibits the following behavior:

 - If you try to run it, you get told to log in with Administrator Privileges and to try again.

 - If you then set "Run as Admin" compatibility mode, the message disappears, but the game doesn't start.

 - Keeping a window open for C:\WINDOWS\SYSWOW64\DRIVERS shows SECDRV.SYS appearing (apparently put there by the game) at the moment you try to start the game.

 - The Windows event log shows that SECDRV.SYS failed to load. The problem, it seems, is that the failed driver load is making these games fail their copy protection.

On my Windows 64-bit 8.1 system, C:\WINDOWS\WINSXS has a folder called amd64_macrovision-protection-safedisc_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_4e6b3758913c9240 with a SECDRV.SYS in it, presumably the one that ships with Windows. Windows 10 had such a folder in early builds (I found this by looking at error logs posted online), but it is missing from the release build.

This is exactly the issue. It is apparently an issue with most if not all CD based games on windows 10. 

You can read more about it, as well as fixes, from here

http://windowsreport.com/cd-games-windows-10/

I do have a question, both for the administrators and the community if the admins consent to it. One of the simplest workarounds for the problem in windows 10 is a no-cd crack. However, I know that this allows things like piracy, may cause issues with mods, etc. If possible, could someone in the community, again, with consent of the administrators of this site, make or link a crack that would work with mods for windows 10 users who own this game legally?

That's a big NO!  We don't discuss cracks here.  End of discussion.

I've been playing the game since it came out and didn't know of the existence of this forum. The minute I opened my new HP notebook with Windows 10 on I loaded MVP 2005 and it crashed every time I tried to open it. This happened with other EA games too (cricket 07). I immediately downgraded to Windows 8.1 pro and problem solved.

Not sure if this is the right place but here goes. I am trying to run MVP 05 on Windows 10. When I try to run the game, it says "MVP Baseball 2005 requires Direct X 9 and hardware graphics acceleration". Any fix for this?

There may not be much you can do.  I recall others having a similar issue a few years ago trying to run the game on Windows 7 with DirectX 11 installed.  Attempting to downgrade to DirectX 9 didn't seem to help.

I havs windows  10 and I can't seem to start a dynasty game no matter what I do. I don't have the greatest of laptops but I've played in before. Whenever  I load a dynasty game the game loads and it crashes and it says there was a problem with mvp.exe and it crashes. I've uninstalled and reinstalled. I tried running it without any mods and it still crashes and I can't playba fame in dynasty mode. Should I downgraded back to windows 7?

If you've read through the thread somewhat, you'll notice that that's pretty much the consensus.  Or you could purchase a low level PC with W7 or XP on it.
