  1. I've been checking ERA+, WAR and FIP to determine pitcher ratings for the rosters I've been doing, usually in that order. I base most of the ratings off of ERA+, then I take a look to verify pitcher value with WAR, then I look at FIP as kind of "proof" of a pitcher's performance.
  2. I actually started having this issue with TiT out of nowhere sometime in the last year. I've been installing portraits by importing into BigGUI then compressing.
  3. More good stuff!
  4. TIT

    False positive. Been using it for years.
    Hey-oh! Can't wait to give this a shot!
  5. Is the patch really that big?
  6. Thanks for the kind words. I really do think this is the best mod I've put together. I took some serious time looking over stats for the 1995 season and then trying to replicate the results when simulating, even to the point of anomalies in that year - Albert Belle had a much better batting average against righties in 1995 than he did for his career, so I upped his ratings against RHP. Another thing I really wanted to emphasize is just how good the best players really are. When you play against Greg Maddux, I want you to feel like your back is against the wall. His 1995 season was incredible and I want it to mean something when you play a game against him. Hope everyone is enjoying the mod!
  7. Weird. You might have to do some Google-ing. MVPEdit would always act weird on me each time I'd install it on a different machine.
  8. Add this file to your Windows/System32 folder. MSCOMCTL.OCX
  9. "I'm done, this is my last roster." - Gordo every year since 2011
  10. More good stuff, thanks!
  11. I'd call it highly doubtful unless the MVP Caribe guys do something again this year. Daflyboys will probably do an MLB-focused roster. It's just too time consuming of a project (literally hundreds of hours) for 2-3 guys to do, which was the case when I was doing MVP 12, 13 and 15.

    Total Classics 1995 By kyleb The stars of Major League Baseball returned to the field in 1995 after the image-tarnishing strike that led to the cancellation of the 1994 World Series. Shortened to 144 games, the 1995 season didn’t begin until late April. Fans were still bitter after the 1994 season let the teams hear it when the season finally started. In the American League, the Cleveland Indians bludgeoned teams on the way to a 100-44 record. The Tribe cruised past Boston and Seattle to set up a matchup with the Atlanta Braves. The Braves, losers of the World Series in 1991 and 1992, were led by one of the great pitching seasons of all time by Greg Maddux. Paired with Tom Glavine and John Smoltz, the trio would not be stopped in the 1995 World Series and defeated Cleveland four games to two. Maddux won his fourth consecutive Cy Young award in ’95. Albert Belle became the first player to ever hit 50 home runs and 50 doubles in one season. Hideo Nomo and his mesmerizing delivery took home the NL Rookie of the Year award. On a personal note, 1995 was the first season I followed as a young fan. Living in a state without a team and my only exposure to baseball being through movies and Sportscenter, I took on the Cleveland Indians as my favorite team. It was definitely a special time to discover the game. I want to thank BallFour and Rising Son for their help on this mod. BallFour was game whenever I discovered a slight variation on a uniform for the mod. Rising Son took care of the overlay, so it looks much better than if I did it myself. Total Classics 1995 features more than a dozen year-specific cyberface updates, special patches specific to 1995 on several uniforms and almost an entirely new portrait set from my last mod, Total Classics 1997. I believe only one player is missing a portrait. I feel that this is the best roster set I’ve ever put together. It involved more player-specific research than I had ever done before, referencing books and magazines of the era to better reflect pitcher repertoires and attributes. I hope everyone loves this mod and much as I enjoyed making it! ------------------------------------------- *** INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS *** - After you download the total_classics_1995.7z file, double-click to open it. - Extract the contents of the file into a folder. - Double-click the explodeme.exe file - Find the location of a CLEAN (or patched) copy of MVP Baseball 2005 and click "Extract". - Allow the program to extract all of the new content. - Play the new Total Classics 1995 mod. ------------------------------------------- *** VERSION HISTORY *** v1.0 Initial release
  13. Yo man, not sure how well you know datafiles, but I just posted a topic in the MVP2005 Mod Requests forum. If you could help me out, I'll gladly create anything more you might need for the 95 mod (minor league unis, etc).

      Yeah, saw that post man. A little out of my expertise. 

    2. BallFour


      Not a problem. I'll see if I can find enough stuff for a seance and bring Sean O back from the dead.

      Haha best of luck. I REALLY wish I had a good grip on editing stadiums. Really, my skillset is more based on determination to get things done than on creativity (like you and other people with solid Photoshop skills) or technical computer skills (like cyberface and stadium creators).

    Great work!
