MVP Baseball 15 Support Thread

Recommended Posts

Glad you have it working in some way atleast!

Well...not anymore. It started crashing again. Oh well...I'll try on the XP laptop once I get a new power adapter.

Hi, i just installed the 15 mod, and everything works fine, except every time the i start a ball game, it jumped out to the desktop without any error message.

Read through the thread and see if anyone with similar specs as yours found a solution.  You need to be more specific, as in under what conditions this is happening, what you've installed additionally, what type of a game you were trying (teams/stadium), OS, etc. , etc.

I couldn't find this posted on the support thread, excuse me if it was and I missed it.  I re-installed MVP '05 and installed MVP '15 in May or June using the thread about installation.  I've been playing it fine up until today.  I recently got windows updates for 8.1 and I don't know if that has to do with it.  At first it gave me a prompt to get administrative privileges.  I figured out how to do this, but nothing happened. 

 

Now, when I try to load the game nothing happens.  This whole time, the CD player on my computer has been having issues with my CD player.  It occasionally stops working, but generally restarting the computer gets it to work.  As of right now, it's reading the CD, but nothing is happening when I try to load the game.  Yes, I've taken the CD out and put it back it.  It's currently reading it fine, but still nothing.

I've ran the troubleshooter and I've also started getting the administrator prompt again.

Anyone have any suggestions?

So weird thing going on here...I tried looking for this all over the answer to this but can't seem to find it. After downloading the MVP 15 total conversion mod and extracting it, the two files I get are the readme and the explodeme file, but the explodeme file is listed as 0 KB. When I double click on it, I receive a notification that says "This app can't run on your PC." I'm using Windows 10...is there a workaround for this? Have downloaded and re-downloaded several times. I also try opening the file as an administrator but that doesn't work either. Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know, but there's no reason to post in here (the correct place) and make your own thread about it.  Someone will see it and answer you if they can.

I just downloaded the MVP15.7z file and extracted all of the contents (Explodeme and the Read Me) with 7zip to a folder (called MVP15) on my desktop.

Explodeme is 968MB and working on my end.

hi guys,

I just finished my first season with the MVP 15 (with the Cubbies, lost the NLCS against the Nats after winning the first 3 games, argh !! :-))

I would like to play another season, but the schedule generated by the game put the Astros in the Central Division... Do you have some fix with this issue ? I tried the Dylan's Schedule Generator, but I have some troubles, like I say in the postlink below...

http://www.mvpmods.com/forums/topic/57517-dylans-schedule-generator/

Thx for your help, from France ! :-)

Hi guys.  First thing to say, is thanks so much to everyone who works hard to update the game.  I haven't played since MVP08, and an article I read online inspired me to have a go with MVP15.  But I have the problem that it cashes back to windows every time I start a game.  Really grateful for advice, as I have read this and other threads, specifically:

- Running on Windows XP.  Not sure what service pack.

- Did a clean install from the discs of MVP 05.  Installed all 5 patches.  Game works fine.

- Installed MVP 15.  Menus all work fine, but crashes whenever I go into a game.  Tried a number of stadiums / teams.

- Thought I'd cracked it when I found the "4GB app" or whatever on the support thread, and ran that against the executable - but get exactly the same issue.

Really grateful for any other tips.  I did notice my sliders have somehow survived - should I have deleted my profile also ?

Edit - I tried various resolution settings - including putting the game and my PC onto 800x600.  If there are any more resolution tricks I can pull, let me know.  Thanks again.

Hi uk.... it's odd that you XP machine is doing that.  I would say in order to rule out that it's some type of hardware problem, try to install MVP 08 or 12, which I've found to be the 2 most stable versions of TC mods of the lot.  See if you can run either of those first and then let us know.  If you can, then there is something with the 15 install that is tripping you up.

Thanks for responding Gordo.  I mentioned, I was previously playing MVP08 without issue.  Thinking about it some more, I'm not confident I fully uninstalled MVP before re starting.  So the next thing I do will be to run an uninstall using "add or remove programs" - (assuming that is the best way?) and delete my profile before trying again.  If that doesn't work I will try MVP12 from the same base.

So glad I held onto those discs all these years......

I don't think deleting your profile is necessary, although more so, hold on to the options if you liked the settings/sliders the way they were.

You need to provide more information -- What operating system are you running?  What teams did you select for the practice game?  Have you tried running any other MVP mods (e.g. MVP08, MVP12, etc.)?

Windows 10, 64bit. No other mods except for mvp2005 patch 5, mvp 2015, and mvp 2015 patch 1... I followed the instructions on how to install those 3, so now I am confused why I can't PLAY the game... I get the game running but I can't play. I used red sox vs miami and there's still a lot of jerseys locked. I'm very new to this game, sorry for the lack of knowledge.

Well I am not too sure as to why your game is crashing but I can help you with your locked uniforms.

Create a new player named Katie Roy. Save that player. You will then have all the uniforms and stadiums unlocked.

New to the forum.  Appreciate the work done on this site.  Bought a legit copy of MVP recently,and just installed with the 2 discs on my Windows 8.1 laptop.  However, I can't get the game to open, also doesn't work in compatibility mode.    Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Gordo,

Thanks for the quick response.  Which link to the windows 8 issues?  I only see the link to the one about the Windows 7 update that prevented the game from starting, but I do not know what the issue is on Windows 8.  I actually checked my security updates, and did not have any that looked similar.   Any cure for the Windows 8 issues?  

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, but the only glitch I know of that keeps the game from opening at all (other than for W10) is the one above.  Just to be clear, you're talking about not being able to open the base game, not a modded version, correct?

Ok Ill look into the security updates.  It has to be one of those that is keeping the game from running.  Yes I have an original copy of the game (the real thing) with box, instructions etc.  Used both discs to install onto my laptop.  I can't seem to figure out what the issue could be.  I am going to try and undo all of the windows updates, and see what happens. 

Thanks

You can also partition your drive (or use an external drive) and install XP or W7 to the new partition to play MVP and older games as well.  Good luck.

Gordo,

So I have over 290 security updates.  Do you know if there is a way to select them all at once to uninstall or do I have to check each one at at time to uninstall?  Thanks in advance.  I am hoping this does the trick.

The only security update that we've discovered that had any effect on starting the game is the one discussed above and in the other pinned thread. 

Control Panel > Windows Updates > View Update History (link to the left) > Search box (search for KB3086255).  If that is showing as installed, follow the directions in the second posting of this thread:

Gordo,

Deleting that security update and inserting the second disk did indeed do the trick as far as allowing the MVP 05 menu to appear on my desktop.  However, it crashes and says it requires DirectX 9 and hardware graphics acceleration.  Is there any thread dedicated to this issue?  I imagine once I get this problem handled I will be able to finally play the game.  Thanks again in advance, I really appreciate the work and help from you and this forum.

If you don't have a dedicated graphics card I would get one.  You don't need anything excessive and should be able to find one on ebay or amazon for peanuts.  In fact, an older card with older drivers tends to work better than newer drivers.

Menus and rosters look great! Thanks to everyone involved. However, it crashes whenever I try to play and actual game. I am running MVP 2005 on Windows XP via VMware on m a MacBook Air (I know). I have tried different teams in different stadium, but I keep getting the same message. The game closes to Windows with an error message. Is there anything I can do?

1. Welcome to the site

2. See if the base game from the disc install works before you do any mods.  If it does. Try MVP 08 or MVP 12.

3. You really need to lose the political avatar.  It's a sports site.  Truly.

Windows 10 issues here. Been playing this game since 05 with mods but once I got a W10 computer nothing worked so I haven't played in a while and I'm itching.

I install the two discs to the C: root on my computer and run the app as admin, nothing happens. Getting the loading cursor for a second then nothing.

I tried installing the MVP15 patch over that, nothing - I never even get into the game.

What am I missing?

Thanks guys.

Buud...click on forums and then mvp support...you'll see the Windows 10 thread there.  It's easy to think that the main page is the forums page, though it's not.  Welcome to the site.

Really appreciate all the support and different mods / rosters available. Just one question not really related to game issues but the pitch speed is a little slow and I'm not talking slider wise. The fastest fastball I've managed to throw (took Chapman) was 94. Is that normal? Does it go higher?

 

Thanks again for everything. You guys do good work.

Now that the MVP 15 mod has been released, I created this topic for support questions or to report issues.

Admin Edit: MVP Baseball 2015 Patch 1 is out. Be sure to download it to remain up to date!

Can these mods be used to update mvp 2005 on xbox 360? Cause I keep seeing people talking about how to do this for a PC. If anyone can explain to me how to apply the roster updates for a xbox 360 I'd appreciate it. Really wanna play mvp with all these cool updates.

No, you cannot use this mod for XBox.  It is only for the PC.

Actually if you want to do a lot of conversion work and transferring of other similar types of files you can make it somewhat like it is for the PC, but you'd have to learn to do that and ftp everything over to a modded xbox.  MVP is not compatible on a 360...only the original.

Just want to let anyone know who is trying to run mvp 2015 on a windows 10 machine, I too had crashing problems. I now have it running, I followed Kc' s guide for the clean copy directly on C: drive, along with patching. It would crash. I then saw his 4 gig patch from nt core, downloaded and ran against the mvp executable, and it now runs flawlessly. So anyone having problems on a windows 10 setup, try this.. And thanks for another great mod guys. And Kc, great idea, thanks for the post!!

Hi there,
I am new to this site, so I hope this is a good place to ask this.

I primarily play mvp 2005 on my ps2, and I am looking to update it with these rosters posted here.  Any suggestions on how to do that? The only thing I can think of is to download MVP 2005 for the PC, and transfer the information over to the PS2 (Which would take a while).  

Any help is appreciated!

This forum is amazing. Thought I would never get this running-- almost caved in and got the show + ps4.

 

i got it running perfect on my laptop (win 7 pro.). My windows 10 rig couldn't get anywhere. This was a mission well worth it. Thanks to all who made this available for us!

If you download Mvp 2005 you will be downloading a pirated version. There's problems with that and also pirated software isn't supported here. You have to have a legitimate copy of the game.

I know that the PC roster files worked in the original Xbox, but not sure of the format for PS2.  I assume it's different.

I think for PS2 users, that guy's website is about the only complete option and I'm sure he charges a fee.  Ain't nothing anyone can do about it, including the logo.

I posted this directly on Gordo's feed but this might be a better place to post the question...

 Can anyone tell me the best way to change a teams default lineup so that I don't have to load saved lineups before playing a "Season Prep Game"?  I wanted to update a team with current players but moving players between the MLB team and the AAA team fixes the roster but then the game chokes because the default lineups are missing players.  I can set the lineups then save but I have to reload every time I restart the game.

TIA

That's true and I am not too concerned with it either. Besides there is not much of a demand for Mvp '05 on the PS2. As long as that guy does not associate himself with this website it's no big deal. We already have a bunch of Koreans stealing our stuff every day from both the 2k12 and Mvp downloads and claiming it as their own.

DOH!  Thanks Gordo.  That is how I moved the players between the ML and AAA to begin with.  I didn't realize there was a tab under ML that says, "Lineups".  I do now.

 

Thanks again

What's nice is that you can then save the roster in the game with whatever heading makes sense and then if you need to experiment with other line-ups, you have up to those 4 saves you can do.

Hey guys, apologize if this has been mentioned or is the wrong thread but I couldn't find it. Anyways I got everything running recently, and well done to everyone that created it, it's fantastic. Only hiccup I'm having is with the controller. I was using an Xbox One controller wired into the computer, and the configuration gets messed up. Even though I have it set correctly, the X button brings up a menu screen while pitching and during game play X doesn't throw to third and Y throws to third instead of second. I'm assuming this is a glitch with the actual game and not the mod itself, but didn't know if anyone knew if this was fixable.

 

Also, the crashing before games loading can be fixed just by restarting the computer for those wondering...

 

Thanks guys.
