"Legends from the Booth" Play-By-Play

Recommended Posts

Has there been any discussion about extracting the PBP and color from a newer PS game?

...which isn't to say I'm not excited about Mel, Vin, and Ernie. I am. I just thought it might be easier to import from a newer game with (possibly?) more transferable calls/variations/current player names, etc.

In any case, keep up the great work, all. This project feels like mod history in the making.

If you've got some suggestions for another game, that's fine. MLB 2004 has over 22000 calls which is actually more than MVP 05 had. Granted that's because MLB has all the team names and players names all in one huge file rather than split up like MVP. If you take that into account then MVP probably has more. Point being, MLB has plenty of calls with Vin. On the other hand, Mel will probably repeat some calls more often because there's not as much variation but we can live with that to get him in the game. Vin's variation will offset that so it shouldn't seem too repetitive. The Mel Allen name file has all the oldtimers and we'll rely on Vin too have some more modern players. Since this mod is too cover all of baseball history, I'm not too worried about missing some of the new guys, you can't have everybody. If somebody really wants to, they can splice and dice the names later to create newer players.

Man ! That sample sounds fantastic ......... I know how long a road you have to travel to get this done but if you are able to do it this will could be a real game changer of a mod !!!

Thanks Joel ---- I really enjoy hearing those guys and can't imagine how it would sound with these great conversion mods found here on mvpmods.

If one can envision the successful completion of your Legends in the Booth mod combined with Homer's All Time Legends mod then we are all in for a real Treat !!!

Thanks for the feedback, Stecropper. As you can tell, I took your into idea from TC69 (national anthem and Umpire's "playball" ) and changed it just a little to get my oldtime tunes in there.

if anyone wishes to jump in and try to make them compatible, i'm all for it. right now, i'm up to my eyelids getting the legends stuff done. unfortunately, i'm doing all the player audio with krukow/kuiper still. it'll be quite the feat to get this audio done for it.

Hey Homer,

Send me a list of some of the audios you need, and I can make a few for you.

oh boy, you guys have no idea. click my sig. grab that spreadsheet. i would need to make player audios for all of those guys. for now, i've already done all the A's, M's, and some of the reds and red sox. if there are enough to sample from, i'm gonna need a way to access them so i can do them one by one too.

I've gone through all of the player audio and unforunately Scully is missing a lot. There are a few legends but not many. If you want it all Scully, there will need to be a lot of cutting/splicing of other sounds. I've posted the name sounds in a hyperlinked download if you guys want to give it a shot. If you are serious about this, let me know and I'll e-mail you the player name portion of the Scully spreadsheet.

My project plans to deal with this problem by having Mel Allen do all the full name announcements and some of the last names but if you want it all Scully, I'm afraid you will have to create many of them yourselves.

Joel,

I have been away for a while but come to mvpmods every once in a while to see what's new. This mod has the potential to have a huge impact in replayabiltiy...along with classic season mods, this will be nirvana.

Glad to see you involved. I don't do much anymore roster wise, but I remember the OTB, TL3, and HH days....

As Dylan said, "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now"

Don't punt on this one...no matter how long it takes...this will be huge.

Chris

Yankee4,

Have any idea how we could get the Yankee stadium PA announcer into the game? He is absolutely the best in the game. Any Yankee fans able to record him? Maybe if we can get a stack of recordings, we can get some names announced by him. We don't need everybody, just a good sample would be cool.

Bob Sheppard (aka The Voice Of God) missed this year of PA announcing for the Yankees & The NY Football Giants. His replacement, Jim Hall is very good with quite a similar style. There are a handful of Sheppard clips on the web........

I don't know if somebody would want to take this on, but if he could find a good voice morphing software, we could maybe take the existing PA announcer and morph it to sound like Bob Sheppard.

I've also posted another sample on page 1 of this thread. It's Mel Allen this time doing the stadium intro and then handing off to Vin Scully to announce the starting pitcher.
