  1. Jim825 added a post in a topic: Mvp 15 Opening Day Rosters   


    Every player in the game has a cyberface ID assigned to him.  That's how players can have different faces.  Each face ID corresponds to a particular image file embedded in the MVP Baseball 2005\data\models.big file.  When you start the game and go through the steps to select your teams, select the uniforms, select the stadium and go to play, the game looks at the rosters on each team, and checks to make sure each player's assigned face ID has an image file in the models.big file.  If it can't find the image file in the models.big file, the game crashes.
    As MVP2005 was modded over the years and new players were added, new face IDs had to be created and new face image files created and added to the models.big file.  It's possible that some of the face IDs assigned to players in the MVP15 rosters do not have the corresponding face image file in the models.big file.  That might explain your crashes.  I have not used MVP14 or the MVP15 rosters too much, so hopefully some of the guys (kyleb, daflyboys, etc.) who are more familiar with these mods can provide more info or correct me if I've misspoken here.

    As MVP2005 was modded over the years and new players were added, new face IDs had to be created and new face image files created and added to the models.big file.  Since you installed just the MVP15 rosters on top of your default (out of the box) version of the game, many of the players had face IDs assigned to them that are not in the default models.big file.  That would explain the crashes you are experiencing.
    To get around this, you need to install the MVP14 mod first and then install the MVP15 rosters.  If you still have crashes, you may need to install some of the new MVP15 faces that have been released.  I have not used MVP14 or the MVP15 rosters too much, so hopefully some of the guys (kyleb, daflyboys, etc.) who are more familiar with these mods can provide more info or correct me if I've misspoken here.

    I don't believe that you are doing anything wrong.  The mini games may not work in some of the Total Classics mods since some of the players it is expecting have been removed.

    It sounds like it is a cyberface mismatch, or more likely a missing cyberface.  You should probably check the forums to see if there are any cyberface mods you need to install.

    Did you install MVP14 first or did you just install the MVP15 rosters on top of an "out of the box" version of the game?
  6. Jim825 added a post in a topic: Noob questions   

    There never really was an "ask dumb noob questions here" section.  The typical answer is "Did you search the forums (using the Search button at the the top of the page) to see if your question has already been answered?".  The game has been around for 10 years and this site has been around longer than that, so just about any question you can think of has been asked before (and often asked mulitple times).  Searching on your own before asking is usually your best bet.
    That being said, here are some suggested forums to look at:
    http://www.mvpmods.com/forum/20-mvp-baseball-2005/
    http://www.mvpmods.com/forum/28-support/
    And here is a good thread to get started, although, it is 7 years old,  so some of the links in it may no longer work:

    Trues is in the process of updating / reorganizing the website, so some things may not work right now.

    I couldn't find Granny Smith apples at the grocery store tonight. It's A-Rod's fault!!

    I have an 11 year-old 3.0 GHz Windows XP PC with a 7 year-old AGP video card that I play the game on and it runs fine for me.

    I'm guessing he bought it online and downloaded it through a service like Steam. In that case he wouldn't have discs.

    You're more than welcome to post what you want as long as it is constructive and relevant to the thread you are posting in. Hijacking threads to complain about issues you've brought up in the past, but which have not been resolved to your satisfaction, is the exact opposite of being constructive. We'll leave your post here for no other reason than to show you we can be fair.

    And if you look at the thread I started this morning about the online article on MVP2005 and wonder where all the negative comments are, they are hidden because I made the decision to do that. They had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the intent of the thread (celebrating the article about MVP2005 and the fact that MVPMods was mentioned). The thread was not titled "Let's discuss which game is better - MVP2005 or MLB2K". If you want to debate that, feel free, but do it in the proper forum. Don't hijack another thread to discuss it.
  12. Jim825 added a post in a topic: Some Nice Publicity For Mvpmods   

    About a month ago, a number of us were interviewed by Ben Lindbergh, a staff writer at grantland.com on why MVP2005 is still going strong, ten years after its release. He was particularly interested in the modding community that has refused to let the game die.

    Grantland is a popular sports and pop-culture blog started in 2011 by veteran writer and sports journalist Bill Simmons. It is indirectly associated with ESPN.

    I received a message from Ben today letting me know that the article has been posted online. Here's a link to it: http://grantland.com/the-triangle/mvp-baseball-2005-mod-community-mlb-video-games/

    Before installing the additional 2015 mods, did you verify that MVP14 ran without crashing?
  14. Jim825 added a post in a topic: Game Plays Way To Fast   

    Did you install the MVP14 mod first? If you just install the 2015 rosters without installing MVP14, the game will crash because come of the cyberfaces associated with the players on the 2015 rosters will be missing.

    That looks great and will be a welcome addition to Total Classics.
