Cameras in-game

12 posts in this topic

After installing the MVP2015 mod, I realise I've now got a camera set that I really don't like at all. I can't find the default cameras in here anywhere so can someone tell me specifically what files I need to get from the disc? And will that file with the camera info also have other things in it that I may not want to get rid of (visual elements)? I prefer to stick with the defaults but if there's a selector for camera packs before starting a game, that would be cool.

Do you mean a datafile? If so there is a lot to choose from in the download section.

I highly recommend this:

At first it takes some getting used to not having a pitch meter and the 1P batting view takes some adjusting.  But if you want a good in-game sim experience, I highly recommend this.

Yeah, thanks. I'll have a look around. I just really dig the stock feel. But there's probably something in there without specific things like MVP07 overlays.

If you like Gordo's rosters then you will enjoy his datafile. And there are a lot of good ones out there too. Jim825 has a very nice one. Trues has one and when Mvp 2005 first came out a guy named KSM made some outstanding ones. They are still in the download section.

I thought you could just plop the txt file in the data folder. Not working for me.

Yes, that's exactly where it goes.

Ok, tried a few. I like yours a lot Gordo. Just wish it didn't say MVP15. Or is that because I'm playing it in the 15 mod updated to your 17 rosters? Seeing the game from different angles (literally) has brought up the issue of sliders. I'm having trouble getting the player/fielder running and the thrown ball to flow realistically. Any recommendations?

Also, surprisingly, I recently found my massive folder of applications for modding MVP from 10 years ago AND all the edits I had done. Cameras, audio edits, etc etc. Don't know everything that's in there to be honest. But I did have my own datafile so I've gotta try that.

Datafile has nothing to do with the overlay.  You can get a different overlay.  For sliders, search the downloads section or the forums.  There's too many variations.

Right but is there anything in particular that you do  with your sliders to get good realistic play? You seem to have good ideas about this game and how it plays.

There should be a sliders file inside that SIM pack.  Also, check the thread for updates since then, then tweak to your liking:

I actually game across the pics I put together for someone for my most updated offline silders (All-Star level).  These are for the Sim Game Play pack I put together w/ the 1P batting view that I use.  I have no idea how they'll respond with other batting/pitching views:

Thanks, man. Yeah, that definitely played a better game. I was just having all sorts of weird things like too many  triples, players getting to second that shouldn't have, sharply hit balls rolling into the gap that turned into triples becaus my outfielders took forever to get to them.
One thing is kind of annoying which is that an overthown ball causes the camera to swing around and you completely lose any sense of where your fielders are, but I suppose that's just the way the game is.

The string music at the beginning of innings and the game, is that what comes baked into MVP2015?
