    Been playing this all weekend it just came out. Great job Don!

    No problem... We're all a team on this site.

    You're probably trying to import a new bitmap that is of larger size than the original. I'm guessing that you are getting a message that the buffer size needs to be increased? You'll have to edit the index.fsh file and increase the buffer size. Change the BUFSZ line to something really big like 999999. That should probably fix it.

    Even better that they are merging the statistics already found at seamheads.com Awesome news! I was already working on a project to enter all this data into the Lahman database so they would could easily import Negro League teams with the click of a mouse. This is essentially how I created the 1923 integration mod I'm working on. Dennis, if you or anybody else wants a copy of this Negro League modded Lahman database, let me know. Incredible. I'm still working on but this will speed up my work quite a bit. We can simply copy and paste this data into Excel and create spreadsheets to import into the Lahman database. It's very similar to the process used by Dylan calculators in the Import/Export feature.

    While working on teamsets this year, I've also found that the MBE files are actually renamed Microsoft Access database files. This will allow some OLE between Lahman and the MBE files. I'm off subject here now but this is a game changer.

    Thanks for Sharing this Homer. You can do 15 uniforms per team? I've found my limit to be 12. Beyond that, the frontend crashes when I scroll the uniforms if I try to put more previews in the uniforms.big file. It crashes for me anyway. How were you able to get to 15 or is that a typo and you meant 12?

    File Name: Seals Stadium
    File Submitter: OTBjoel
    File Submitted: 07 Mar 2012
    File Updated: 17 Mar 2012
    File Category: Stadiums
    Version: 1.1

    After lobbying for somebody to hopefully do this stadium, I decided to just do it myself. The base is from Sean O's Wrigley Field L.A. After changing the walls and the crowd, and a few other things, it's passable for Seals Stadium. I had been keeping this to myself for a while but decided to put it out there just in case anybody else wanted. If anybody wants to improve upon this, please feel free.

    Rename the stadium to a stadium slot in data/stadiums that you want to replace.

    With this stadium, all the classic stadiums that were included in Oldtime Baseball are now available on the MVP platform.

    Lates update has subtle crowd updates as well as changed seat colors from red to green. The small change makes a huge difference in the "feel" of the stadium. Hopefully more improvements to come.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks palooka. I'm pretty sure I'd get paid more if I could do the work you do :-)

    It opens a dos box and does it's thing. I am assuming you already have the legends from the booth mod. If you do, then the box stays up for a few seconds. If you have a really fast PC then I can see it looking like a blip on the screen and finishing really fast.

    Copy all contents of this zip file into
    c:\program files\ea sports\mvp baseball 2005\data\audio\cd\spch_pbp

    run the koufaxfix.bat (just double click it)

    It will replace Scully's Koufax name with an improved version.

    The old one was done with Mel Allen saying the "fax" part of his name.
    I was able to find an audio with Scully saying the word "facts" and it was
    easy enough to splice this into the audio instead. Sounds much better.

    I think you're the first one who's actually mentioned "The Voice of the Turtle". Yeah, I sneaked that one in there for the True Classics fans. BTW, you guys are doing a great job with TC1915.

    Version: 2.5

    This is a tool which will allow you to see and extract the contents of any packed file. Not only can you use it extract standard BIG files but you will also be able to extract/import into the troublesome audio BIg files which are another animal altogether. Originally written for the NHL series, this program works on many file formats used in MVP. It can even extract and parse out the .dat files located in tnamdat and stdnmdat.big. These dat files are not single audio files but rather multi-file format. Good luck with this tool. I have found it very handy and Legends from the Booth would have been impossible without it.
