  1. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic: 2014 Roster Update   

    MLB 2K14 Roster Update Project


    This started off as a personal project just to update portraits and transfer players. Since then I've developed it further by adding new players and doing full re-rates. So far I'm basing my re rates off the last official 2K roster update from 2K13 for the 360. This should give a good baseline on player ratings for this year.

    The goal of this project is to create a roster update that mirrors a 2K roster update. That means it's yours to customize with cyberfaces, team colors, etc. Nothing extra will be added on. This way you only add what you want to add and nothing is prepackaged. This roster will also be 100% franchise compatible which means the Astros will NOT be in the AL. This will allow full functionality (no crashes, missing standings, etc.) at the cost of realism.

    What will be included:
    Fully updated player portraits (Semi) Accurate 40-man rosters Re-rate of all players Franchise ready Salaries adjusted Progress

    Blue Jays
    Red Sox
    White Sox

    Demo Preview

    Here's a link to a demo of what I completed so far. It's unfinished and still needs touch ups on some finished teams. Take a look and feedback is welcome. Portrait file not included.

    Future Plans

    There's no guarantee this will ever be finished. If it is, it would be by the end of the season. Generally it takes 2-3 hours per team to get to it a finished phase. Yet, as the season goes on, lots of transactions occur which cause teams to be tweaked before the roster is even complete.

    I'm hoping that once it's completed I can go through and do equipment edits but that would take a lot of additional time.

    I'm not going to solicit help for this project but if you're up for the challenge doing a few teams here and there would speed this along. I have a strict regiment for how each team should be updated so it would be a challenge. I can be fairly OCD,

    Well either way they look great and I would hardly call me a legend, lol. I stopped because I just got bored and fed up with franchise and sim stats. I was intrigued though to learn the patch was actually released so I might give it another try. No matter how bad the game is there's just an allure with modding and then playing with your creations.

    Don't think you were around when i was modding but you're stadiums look great. I don't remember but did the game already have that "wet" effect on the dirt or did you add it in? If so I think it looks great but might need to be toned down a bit.
  4. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic: It Looks Like The Patch Was Released   

    Wow, I can't believe this was released. I might have to make a comeback...

    Anyone actually find out definitely if the patch notes KC posted are included in the patch? All you have to do is test the pitcher fatigue bug and see if it's still there.

    Skin tones were fixed with Redditor, so a value of 3 is going to be different in Redditor than a value of 3 in Ty's editor. I would ignore the skin tone for now unless you know which is which in redditor.
  6. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic: [Workaround] Mlb Today Freeze   

    I just can't get this workaround to actually work. I follow the directions exactly, set my date to 9/30, and it updates MLB Today to October 3rd? I never get the Cardinals/Rangers game. When I change the date back on my system, the game loads fine but always to October 3rd, even though my system time is correct. This would be fine if it weren't for my next issue which is whenever I try to logon I get the "Currently testing your network configuration" and it hangs for a good 2-5 minutes before advancing. So I logged out of 2K Sports and set "remember me" to "no" and now the game freezes again.

  7. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic: 2013 And Beyond   

    Yea, this is the result of waiting for 2K's patch:

    I honestly don't see a long shelf life for this game beyond this year. As talented as some of the modders are we just don't have anyone with coding experience to be able to extend the modding life. Ty's editor is all we have and I doubt Vlad will follow up on his editor. If we had just one person with the coding experience of Ty we could get an editor that corrects the current issues (marlins, skin color, etc.) and build upon it.

    However, we only have talented artists and not talented programmers. That's the advantage of NBA 2K modders. They have some talented programmers that can come out with some nifty mod tools. Same with MVP, they have a lot of crafty tools made by talented programmers.

    Edit: Saw that Vlad did announce the editor, but still waiting on the release of it. My post still stands true until we actually get our hands on the editor and see what it can do.
  8. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic: Mlb 2K12 Date Fix On The Way!   

    I wouldn't be that upset about not having a patch. They really didn't adjust anything on the field. They adjusted angles that players take when running to the dugout and other minor animation hitches That's it. Nothing that would truly change your experience. I'm surprised their even going to patch the date bug. In fact, I doubt they will (for PC users). If it's something that requires a gamefile to be edited/updated it will not release on the PC. If it's an issue with their servers then it will release on all platforms. That's just my two cents.
  9. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic: =Ds= Cyberface Request Thread   

    There's literally no way to figure it out. Ty's editor isn't deep enough to list the managers and Vlad's editor doesn't support 2K baseball yet. I think in NBA 2K his editor reads coaches faces.

    The only other thing you can do is to painfully cross reference cyberfaces through a process of elimination. Find out which cyberfaces in the game folder are being used in Ty's editor. The one's that aren't are manager faces.

    Or you could just keep randomly opening cyberfaces until you find a manager one. I would bet that the manager faces are in sequence so if, for example, you find #9001 is a manager then #9002, 9003, 9004, are managers as well.

    Could be a NL thing. Some pitchers just do better in one league rather than the other.

    What's the deal with Burnett this year? I just saw his line last night on MLB Quick Pitch and he's 13-3 with a 3 ERA. Must be a second wind for him.
  12. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic: Mvp12 Portrait Pack   

    Weird, I never encountered that. Are you using the latest version of it?
  13. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic: The Espn Experience 1.1 ? By Detroitstyle?   

    I shouldn't respond to this, but I'm going to anyway.

    First of all, it had been two days, TWO DAYS, between your posts. Sorry if I didn't respond in your time frame and I'm even sorrier that your stalking my activity on the site.

    Second of all, I'm under no obligation to respond to your posts, PM's, or overall existence. I can and will do what I want when I want. I actually work very well with others on this site, mainly because they show a little more maturity than others.

    Thirdly, I have moved on for the time being and thus I don't check the 2K forums often. As well, I don't necessarily remember every post I look at or have time to respond to every post, and sometimes I might look at a post and forget to come back later to respond. **** happens.

    Lastly, I don't know why that's there. There's two images that control that spot. One is an MLB Today image, the one you see, and a MLB 2K12 banner. Sometimes one shows up, sometimes the other. I don't know why it does it. If you want to change the MLB Today image it should be somewhere in the Global. I don't remember where.

    Now you can go away and I kindly ask you never to speak to me or reference me in any threads ever again. That is unless you can deliver a proper apology. Your post was childish and plain rude and I highly doubt you would get as kind of a reply as I have given you had you written this way to other members.

    I probably should mention that you need to use TiT to install the portraits.
