Yankee4Life Posted March 24, 2009 Share Posted March 24, 2009 Now don't get me wrong, I'm glad there's a new PC game out and people here seem to be enjoying it. I don't own 2k9 and as of right now I don't plan on it. I really was going to get it, especially since I got a new computer and I can actually run it now, but it seems that every day I come in here I read about some new complaint with that game. Yes, I know, there's a patch coming out. And I'll be sure to read about how good or bad that is too. When a modder like Jim825 uninstalls his 2k9 game and places it on Ebay, that tells me a lot. It tells me there's a lot of problems in 2k9 and that 2k Sports rushed this game. When I read that Jim uninstalled his game, that gave me the idea for this thread and series of games that will be played in here. A lot of new people who have joined this site probably don't know much about Mvp baseball and are only concerned with the 2k9 game. They may not know how many great mods there are in the download section for Mvp. This thread will attempt to introduce them to the multitude of Total Conversion mods that we have here and to show them that Mvp baseball still has a lot going for it. First up, the 1988 Season Mod which can be downloaded right here and if you plan on playing a dynasty, the 1988 schedule fix can be downloaded right here. Video: Mark McGwire hits an infield single off Jack McDowell's glove. Screenshots: Total Classics 1988! Here's Jose Canseco before he started writing books. Main view of the 1988 mod. The overlay is fantastic. NBC Sports did the games back then and they were one million times better than the FOX Network. Dave Stewart had a rough second inning. Here, he throws a wild pitch allowing a Chicago runner to reach second base. The inning gets worse for Stewart as he hits Steve Lyons to load the bases. All Chicago got for its trouble was one run. Pitchers hit in my games. I don't like the DH. One glance at pitcher Donn Pall in this picture tells you everything you need to know as Tony Phillips connects for a two run home run. Chicago rallys against Dave Stewart in the 8th as they score four runs to pull within one run. This run scoring single by Greg Walker got the Sox closer. Tony Larussa pulls Dave Stewart from the game and brings in Rick Honeycutt to face Carlton Fisk. Fisk rudely greeted him with a bases clearing double to bring the White Sox one run behind, 6 - 5. But that is as far as they got as Dennis Eckersley came in the game in the ninth inning and set down the White Sox in order to save the game as Oakland came away with a 6 - 5 victory.
