Total Conversion Mods

Man, Y4L, you need to turn some AA on in your graphics card settings. With a brand new system, there should be no reason for that many jaggies. :)

Y4L staying true

Finally for tonight, the 1961 Season and that can be downloaded right here.

Frank Lary went 23-9 for the Tigers in 1961 as they won 101 games.

Yogi Berra grounds into a double play.

Jake Wood gets out of the box quickly.

Bobby Richardson is late getting to second base as Billy Bruton slides in safely.

Even when Mickey Mantle swings and misses, it's impressive.

Steve Boros dives in foul grounds and still manages to throw out Elston Howard

1961 continued.

More season mods tomorrow.

The Yankees score a run.

Roger Maris dives into third base with a triple.

Full house today at the Stadium between New York and Detroit.

Norm Cash cuts off a throw.

Tigers get the force out at home.

The '61 Yankees head back to the dugout. (Why are the names on the backs of the Yankee uniforms? I asked that very question when the 1961 mod first came out. I was told that the names were put on so the younger users would know who these guys were.)

Nice review and much appreciated.

As far as the Stadium alignments in the TC61* & TC67 Total Conversion Mods, due to those two being the 1st two initial Full Season Mods released the Stadiums were not aligned as they were in later Full Season Mod releases beginning with the TC78 release. In those initial 2 Mods TC61* & TC67 we were using the Classic Stadium slots for the modded stadiums but with the release of TC78 we began actually aligning the modded stadiums in the slots of the appropriate individual teams. At least that's how I recall things progressing.

There are enhancements in the works for TC61*, TC67, TC64 as well as TC69 at which time the TC61* & TC67 seasons will have properly aligned Stadiums for individual teams --- of course along with many other enhancements included to bring them more in line with the later Total Classics Full Season Mods.

And Yes, your memory serves you very well with why we intentionally decided to place player names on the back of those jerseys in those initial mods. However, they will likely be removed in the upgraded versions now that we have vastly improved overlays with information bars at the bottom of the screen that constantly shows players names.

Thanks Again for your review of these Classic Mods !

Don

Great thread, I haven't bought 2k9 and reading those reviews I'm not going to. Furthermore, there's a reason why this site is called MVPmods...MVP2005 stands out as the most durable sports game I've ever played. It's always amazing the fun you can get from playing this "dated" game,and alot of the credit goes to these incredible modders.

And, Y4L, I wasn't able to stop myself from clicking on your sig. :D :D

As far as I'm concerned, MVP Baseball is the only game for PC and continues to be tops because of all the modders who make this game fresh and exciting every year. It truly is amazing that we can play this game with new rosters, portraits, faces, etc., and all because of the wonderful people who make it possible. My appreciation also goes to this site and eamods.com for making it all happen.

As long as I can lift a gamepad, I will be playing MVP Baseball.

Don - I forgot that I broke new ground when I aligned the stadiums in the TC78 mod. :lol:

Next up, the 1956 season which has been recently updated as of March 20th and can be downloaded right here.

Ernie Banks scores a run for the Cubs

Single up the middle off of Chicago pitcher Bob Rush

Even Hall of Famers make errors as evident here as Ernie Banks throws one away.

This was the best chance for the Phils to score but they were denied.

Backing up the play behind the third baseman.

1956 continued

This ball was hit off Robin Roberts' shin but he remained in the game.

This Cub made sure a double play was not turned here as he upends the Phillie shortstop.

Great reaction by Chicago's Bob Rush as he catches a liner right back at him.

Partial view of Connie Mack Stadium, the former home of the Phillies.

He had it, then dropped it.

A great catch up against the wall in right field to rob a home run.

Winning pitcher, Bob Rush. Rush was the Chicago ace in 1956 as he went 13-10 with a 3.19 ERA.

Not that I wish to do anything to sully paulw's wonderful work on these classic parks, as he's done more for classics than virtually anybody, but you may also want to check out the new versions of Yankee Stadium and Shibe (though, admittedly, the shibe download is currently down, I need to re-upload the corrected file). Anytime someone downloads a total classics TC, it'd be smart to check for updates in the download section to make sure you're working with the latest version.

Nice review and much appreciated.

You guys (and this game) deserve it.

There are enhancements in the works for TC61*, TC67, TC64 as well as TC69 at which time the TC61* & TC67 seasons will have properly aligned Stadiums for individual teams --- of course along with many other enhancements included to bring them more in line with the later Total Classics Full Season Mods.

If these are in any way as good as the updates that were just recently released for 1951, 1956 and 1978 then this will be something to look forward to.

And Yes, your memory serves you very well with why we intentionally decided to place player names on the back of those jerseys in those initial mods. However, they will likely be removed in the upgraded versions now that we have vastly improved overlays with information bars at the bottom of the screen that constantly shows players names.

Thanks Again for your review of these Classic Mods !

And that makes sense. Now with the option to install this Classic Overlay installer and with the option in that mod to have an info bar on the bottom of the screen, there is no need to have the players names on the back of the uniforms where they shouldn't have been in the first place. For someone like myself who has paid close attention to the progress of these total classics mods, I have observed the subtle changes you all have put in the newer mods (like this overlay option) that makes you want to go back and put this in the previous ones.

Great thread, I haven't bought 2k9 and reading those reviews I'm not going to.

Thank you. That's why I made this thread because it just seemed to me that Mvp was being cast aside even though this new game seems to conjure up a new "bug of the day" that someone stumbles upon. Hey, I want 2k9 to do well because maybe the mistakes in this game will not be in the 2k10 version.

I think I got it all for the 1956 season Sean because I have the updated version. Did I miss something in the download section?

I think so Y4L, because at least in the screenshots here it's the old version of Yankee (day only) that paul and I worked on, and the old MVP version of Shibe. The newer Classic Yankee is available in 1951, '56, '61 and '67 versions (I believe), and once Shibe is uploaded properly that's scratch built as well.

Sean - Your latest Yankee Stadium (Dec. 2008) is included in the TC1956 update. TC1951 actually includes a version from January 2009, since Paul sent me a newer version with a few slight tweaks for 1951. I didn't include your newer Shibe Park, because you listed it as "1970 Shibe Park" and I did see some ads (e.g. Datsun) that would not have appeared in the 1950's.

The newer Yankee Stadium is only available in TC1951 and TC1956 because Don never released updated versions of TC1961 and TC1967. That's why the older Yankee Stadium shows up in the screenshots for TC1961.

Next up, the 1964 Season which can be downloaded right here.

Colt 45 stadium. Can you imagine how hot it was to watch a game here in the summer in Houston?

The Angel shortstop makes an error.

On target today. Called strike three!

Bob Aspromonte stretches a single into a double...barely.

Double past the third baseman.
