MVP 15 Patch 2 Datafile Beta

Recommended Posts

 

2) If there is anyway to incorporate the age corrector would be fine, probably is the topic with more questions not solved for most of the users.

 

3) To add the option of choose a season with less games can be a plus.

I think the schedule updater already addresses #2.  There are a couple of schedules out there that have 29 and 50 game schedules for #3.

Any word as to when to expect this update? I'm holding off a serious play through until the rosters are accurate. The Texas Rangers are missing people, like Josh Hamilton.

There's been roster updates happening throughout the Summer..... look around the DL section.

Yea hey Gordo, I didn't realize you were apart of the MVP 15 team. Its not that I thought non members would be malicious or something like that, I just didn't think they would have the same ideas of balance the MVP 15 team would have. But you are a member of the MVP 15 team, so clearly you do.

I'll look into getting this patch in a bit, and getting other roster updates as well. I have seen them posted but again, I wasn't sure if they would work well with MVP 15. Now that I know they will, I will give them a go.

 

EDIT: Speaking of the data file. I am assuming it is the one linked in the 6th post in this thread? Bit I'm just seeing a txt file in the zip and no other files.

The txt file belongs in datafile.big which you can import through a utility like BigGui (I'm not sure if it could be found here). 

If you can find the BigGui utility, be sure to rebuild the datafile.big file (by clicking the (R) icon) after importing.

I don't know what that means.  What would being malicious have to do with this?

Well other online communities are not nearly as friendly. Mods compete with each other so in some rare cases they will releases something to break another mod. But this hasn't happened in maybe 10 years.

On the second part, I didn't know you were part of the MVP 15 team, I thought you were "the guy" who did roster updates. And not knowing if you were in the 15 team, I didn't know if you would have the same thoughts on attributes and all the stats that make a difference in the game, in the same vein of the 15 team would.

In other words I thought you were like a Lone Gunman updating the rosters, rather than being involved with the 15 team and release. In as much as you would have your own ideas on balance and player attributes ect. And since 15 changes the ball physics, I figured that would lead to weird results.

I certainly didn't mean any disrespect or anything of the sort. I've been here going on 3-4 days now, and I just do not know the forums "politics" for lack of a better word. It seems this community is all one big group rather than separated out through arbitrary lines drawn whether by mods, or by roster, or by whatever else could divide up a community. That is not a common occurrence, most communities are divided up somehow, so I wasn't expecting a huge unified front. Its a refreshing change of pace to see.

Sweet I've been here 3 days now, and I already have a forum stalker, just because I don't like the Yankees. Grow the hell up old man.

If you can find the BigGui utility, be sure to rebuild the datafile.big file (by clicking the (R) icon) after importing.

I'm guessing this is the tool? http://www.mvpmods.com/files/file/1100-biggui/ I'll give it a shot, sounds pretty simple to do. I will need to make a backup of my original datafile.big I assume.

That seemed very simple, open the data file, then import the txt file. Tool says imported successfully.

Well I played through a batting practice and the first thing I noticed was the camera for batting was back to its "vanilla" settings. In other words when I first installed the mod the pitcher didn't feel like he was so close to homeplate. Now he feels close to homeplate again. Is that the correct angle?
 

Never mind, I think I see the issue, I didn't rebuild the datefile after importing.

 

Hmmmm that didn't seem to solve that issue. In fact I notice that the datafile.big is smaller than the original. After importing and rebuilding the file is 2.78 mg. the original file was 6.99mg.

Oh, just to be clear Sly, kyleb did the rosters basing off of what we did last year.  kyleb was responsible for the roster set initially in MVP 15.  Since I updated stuff at the end of the year last year, kyle went off of that and then created a bunch of minor leaguers and made sure the affiliates were in order.  I decided then to do updates during the Summer, though I tend to focus on MLB stuff primarily (edits too, not just moves).

I don't blame you for focusing on one aspect, there are alot of players to edit just in the MLB I can't imagine the work it would take to do all the MLB teams and their farming clubs. I saw you got some heat from people who must not have any idea how much work goes into something as "simple" as updating a roster. You won't get that from me. I play the minor league games, just because it feels like good practice before playing the MLB game the same day, well depends on which game comes first but still.

 

Though to be honest, I prefer having injuries and suspensions and trades left on, I may try your roster in the future, but I might keep what I have so I won't run into any issues. I guess if its that big a deal for me, I can just learn how to edit rosters myself and find a way, if possible to allow for those things, without having to worry about other issues. But that may be way off the the future, or not at all.

Settle this in PMs. Not in a public forum. Let's stay on topic as we have been in the subsequent posts.

The camera for batting has been restored to vanilla in the datafile as I felt like it made a lot better sense to me to just tweak the base datafile to what I thought would be the logical thing EA would do.

In a sense, a lot of the changes in the datafile were done with the intention of preserving the experience of the game as it was 10 years ago but tweaking it so both new and older, experienced players of the game can enjoy it just the same.

Cool, cool. I was just afraid that indicated I had done something wrong. Does the file get smaller like it does? Am I suppose to see something done when I hit rebuild? When I click it, it doesn't really appear to do anything in the program.

But I guess if the camera goes back to "vanilla" then the changes have taken place. I just haven't played it long enough to notice the difference though, I did do better in Batting Practice with this at MVP, than I do in vanilla, or the other previous version of the mod. I even made it to the 4 round without having to rematch first rattle out of the box. Hey! I did mention I was terrible at the game!

It did seem like the ball took longer to get to the plate than originally it did. And knuckle-balls feel like I am sitting there waiting forever for it to get to me. So it must have been done correctly if your Bugs Bunny comment sheds any light on it.

Am I old because I remember that cartoon too? I remember the one that Goofy was in as well. Also there was another one I can recall but can't seem to find. At one part the crowd was screaming the Umpire is blind, only to reveal, the ump is in fact blind. At another point the same guy is screaming KILL THE UMPIRE, followed by a single gunshot off screen, and his face going from red to white, while he removes his hat. And the announcer calling that the outfielder is fading back, fading, fading, fading, until the character literally fades away. This might be off topic, sorry.
