MVP Baseball 2005 for Dummies

Recommended Posts

I think he's asking about some general MVPedit do's and don'ts as well.  The problem is that the MVPedit support threads are all over the place around here.

 

There's a few major things with MVPedit.

 

*Don't simply move a No. 1 pitcher to another team or do a send down.  Substitute someone in there first and then move him.  Otherwise you run the risk of a phantom slot being taken up (i.e., the game says you have 25 slots taken up when you only have 24).  If this happens, you have to dig into the proper .dat files and figure out which player is the phantom one.  It's a major pain in the ass.

 

*Make sure the FA pool is not too large.  MVPedit says something like 235 slots, but it's not that close.  Keep it to lower 100's if you can.  I have a FA team file of 1 person to rule that out when I have roster problems.  Of course I test this on a copy of the file on which I'm working.

 

*Pitchers cannot have a FB only.  And careful when creating pitchers, even though you add pitches, I've seen them not take.  Create new pitches, switch players in MVPedit, switch teams, go back to that pitcher and see if the pitches "held".

That's great information Gordo. They are definitely some things that will need to be aware of.

Hey, one other thing I just learned this week, albeit a bit minor, is that in MVPedit, if you place 3 pitchers as set up, even though there is space for them, one of them will end up as a LRP in game.  The game doesn't change anything about their attributes, but it will place him there (i.e., you can't have the game show 3 set-up pitchers.)

Sorry of this is the wrong place, but I've searched in several threads and haven't seen anything on this.  With team logos, many of the ones I have (Astros, Blue Jays, some others) are the original ones.  How do I download the current ones and replace the old ones?  I searched the downloads and found the 2017logos.zip file, and downloaded it.  I have the list of fsh files, l121.fsh, l076.fsh and so on, the whole list.  But where do I install those in the MVP Baseball 2005 files?  I've successfully downloaded and installed many uniforms and stadiums but can't tell where to put these files so I can replace those old logos.

 

Can anyone advise or direct me to a thread or link I missed?  Thanks.
