Recommended Posts

I will check it out as well...One last question more of an opinion..Which would be the best number to set for my sliders to get a more realistic baseball game..I want to set it to MVP but I am not sure which number to set all the slider options..??

 

What do you use Gordo...??

Better asked in the sliders thread.  I use the SIM pack I came up with a while ago:  1P batting view; classic pitching (no pitch meter), so my sliders may not work for you unless you'd want to try that.  For offline, I can play no other way.

Did anyone ever find a fix for the stuttering/slowing problem? I've had it on multiple Windows 10 computers. I've also had some sketchy graphics problems, but I'm not really concerned about that until I can get rid of the slow.

Edit:/update: the problem seems to be with hardware rendering. When using any software renderer the glitchy graphics are gone. But all hardware rendering options glitch the graphics. Fixed the slowing down problem with dx11 and using faster presets in the emulation settings menu, but though the framerate still gets choppy, like running it on an actual PS2 (maybe unavoidable?) even though PCSX2 now says 100% and 60 FPS. Would love advice on how to get around this hardware rendering problem if anyone knows. Both systems I've tried it on have AMD cards.

It looks like this at its worst:

You seem to know your way around computers and specs.  Therefore, why don't you dual boot to Win 7 or XP and play the game through one of those OS.  Easiest fix I can think of.

I was hoping I wouldn't have to do something like that, but you're probably right. Any recommendation between the two? VM?

I think people have tried VM with not so ideal results.

 

I'm about to get a new rig myself... hopefully SSD drive and all and you can rest assure that one will have W7 on it.

I dual boot Win 10 and Win 7.  Only thing I use Win 7 for is this game.  Works great with no issues of any kind.

 

Did you start with Windows 10 and partition in 7, the other way around, or do you have 2 HDDs?

I actually have four SSD's installed.  1 Win 10 c drive with OS on it.  1 Win 10 d: drive with programs, photos, documents, games etc.  1 Win 7 c and d partitions with the only game being MVP2005.  1 1TB used for the macrium auto backup of the Win 10 c & d drives.  1 500GB SSD for miscellaneous backup files of random software etc.  Each OS was installed without the other drives connected.

So what was the order of how you did this?  1 SSD w/ Win 10, then disconnect; connect 2 SSD and install 7?  And what do you use to boot up properly?

I have always had the Win 7 OS.  I have a large case and have removable SSD  slots on the front.  I just eject the Win 7 SSD and insert a blank SSD and use the MCT tool to clean install Win 10.  I had Win 8 for a short time and did the free upgrade to 10 so I never had to mess with the Win 7 drive.  Main thing is not to have either OS connected with you install either Win 7 or Win 10.  Sometimes the install with corrupt and install some files on the wrong disk.  Not sure if any of this made any sense.

Ok thanks man.  I did a dual boot with my current rig and my main drive is on W7.  My 2ndary drive was just storage until I added W10 to it.  I rarely logged into it other than to play around with things.  I'm going to have to wipe this small HDD and install W7 on it now that my new rig will have 10 on the main HDD.  I'll have to try to disconnect the main HDD and see if I can install 7 with the disc I have.

Sounds good.  Just disconnect any harddrive with an OS on it first.  Then install the Win 7 on a HDD (clean install) just like you didn't have any other HDD at all.  Should work fine.

I would then upon reboot, the system should ask to which I want to boot.  I should probably go into the BIOS and set the boot order.

Well, the HP Pavilion showed up and I was surprised at how little space there was to maneuver around.  So I partitioned my HDD and attempted to install Windows 7 there.  What an absolute fiasco.  Between BIOS being out of date, the way BIOS is done now with all types of compliance needs and configurations I was really getting pissed with Windows/HP (btw, HP tech support was a joke ... after waiting for a half hour... they simply disconnected the call).  I finally got to the Windows 7 install screen and I lost my keyboard and mouse functions, even on just USB2.  This new rig doesn't come with PS/2 inputs, which I heard was an easy fix.  I searched high and low to no avail.  So I'm playing around now with VMWare as I finally was able to install Windows 7 to that.  Installing MVP now and I'll come back with a report on how it functions, if at all.  Otherwise, I'll probably be buying a small form or mini PC barebones just to run MVP and any other older programs that may require.  But what a bunch of absolute shit this has become as I haven't had to mess with BIOS and such for quite a long time.  Absolutely ridiculous.

So the outcome here was that VMWare was not adequate.  Graphically it wasn't bad at all, but there is a delay in gamepad output and sound synchronization.  And I had set the VMWare to use 4 GB of memory (I assume virtual memory).  I can't complain about that as I don't think VMWare was set up for gaming.  I'm more upset with the whole Windows / BIOS changes and making it so difficult to get the inputs to work after partitioning your drive and attempting to install another, legitimate OS.  I'm not that happy with HP either with the extremely limited settings they have on their BIOS screen.

I use to have a Dell and then an HP years ago.  Both were a pain in the butt to configure.  I now build my own systems from scratch and have not had an issue of any kind.  Dells and HP's are usually bloated and hard to configure.  If I had to mess with either one again I would use my gun.

Honestly I didn't know HP even made motherboards.  I was about to build, but by the time my shopping cart filled up I was over budget.  I found a guy in my area who is selling a Dell Optiplex 740 SFF on Craigslist with some pretty good specs for only $40 ..... now it's a matter of reaching the guy!
