MVP Baseball 15 Support Thread

Recommended Posts

With this patch listed above, does that mean I can disregard the "It is recommended that you install MVP15 over a clean install of MVP Baseball 2005 with at least up to Patch #2." statement found in the notes section of the install?

​No, you need the official MVP Baseball 2005 patch #2 or higher

​This is my first experience with PC gaming.  Where do I find patch #2?

You can find them here:  http://www.mvpmods.com/files/category/28-official-patches/

Note that each patch contains everything that was in the previous patch (e.g. Patch 2 contains everything in patch 1, Patch 3 contains everything in patches 1 and 2, etc.), so you only have to do one install.

​Thank you, Jim.  I swear I've been searching the forums trying to find these things before posting.  I see a lot of your old posts say you only use patch #2.  Those posts were a long time ago however.  Is that still true though?

It's the ultimate mod.
 
I just have a few gripes with player potentials, but that's why we have MVPedit :)

​Among all of the extra stuff we put in it, we ensured that we gave this mod all of the TLC it needed.

 

On a side note, I have edited the documentation for the mod, as people may not be aware that you need a copy of MVP Baseball 2005 to play the mod

​Patch #2 is all I've ever installed.  I didn't find that the patches after that included anything that would help me.

​Right. As you said the later ones were just roster updates and of course we don't need those now.

Do I install patch #2 with the TiT?  And if so is there a step by step process I can view to see how that is done properly?  So to recap, I have a clean copy of MVP.  Then I install patch #2.  Then I install the MVP 15 mod?  Then the MVP Patch 1 listed above by kyleb?

MVP 15 Patch 1 is taking me almost an hour to install using TIT.  I did a clean install of MVP 2005, Installed patch #2, and installed the MVP 15 mode.  But when I try to install MVP 15 patch #1 with TIT It hangs for a long time and does not look like its doing anything.  I get the screen saying its installing textures and something else and that is it.

​Player potentials meaning what?  That's not an attribute in MVPedit.  Do you mean "Star Power"?  If so, I based that on last years WAR rating, it's not just arbitrary..  Also, I can tell you that one guy I missed on speed is George Springer.  I'd edit him to about an 87.

 

Waiting for uploads to get fixed.  I made a desktop icon:

Probably do cpu vs cpu rosters as well as I think some are still interested in them.

 

Installed everything with the patch.  I will say that I think the resolution for which you set it can really matter in OS above XP.  I would say that if you are crashing with this, first run it on 800 x 600 and go from there.  For some reason 1280 x 1024 crashed for me but used the res changer to go 1280 x 960 and it worked fine.  I'm personally not a fan of the stretched look.

So a big thanks to kyleb and everyone who contributed to make this happen.  But, kyleb was definitely the driving force and is the ultimate project manager!

MVP 15 Patch 1 is taking me almost an hour to install using TIT.  I did a clean install of MVP 2005, Installed patch #2, and installed the MVP 15 mode.  But when I try to install MVP 15 patch #1 with TIT It hangs for a long time and does not look like its doing anything.  I get the screen saying its installing textures and something else and that is it.

It froze for me but that's because I just clicked through installing TIT. I closed the process as well as killing off tyzip.exe (which will be mentioned again below) to reinstall TIT. So ​I just installed Patch 1 successfully, and this is what I did:

1) I installed Total Installer Thingy with one change: The utility itself assumes your game is installed in the 64-bit Program Files folder and not the 32 bit folder (the one with the x86).

If you made the same mistake I did, make sure you reinstall TiT as admin (right click on "install_TiT_2.0.5.exe" and select "Run as Administrator") with the following directory (assuming you did not install MVP Baseball 2005 in a different folder):

C:\Program Files (x86)\EA SPORTS\MVP Baseball 2005\

If you get an error about some program called tyzip.exe, it means that it's running and you have to end the process through Task Manager.

To do this, you can press CTRL+Alt+Esc to bring up the Task Manager, then click the Processes tab. Look for tyzip.exe and right click on it -> End Process.
Retry the installation, or click Retry on the dialogue box the setup displayed for tyzip.exe. It should be successful.

2) Run Total Installer Thingy as Admin by right clicking the Total Installer Thingy shortcut on your desktop and selecting run as administrator. This will allow the program to make changes within the Program Files folder.

In the dialogue box that will show up, navigate to where Patch 1.7z is located and click it. It should now begin to unpack and install the update.

Installation is successful only when the program loads up the (now defunct) EAMods page on your browser.

 

Hopefully my quick tutorial helps.
