The MVP 2005 and Windows 10 Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey KC, maybe we (well, mostly you :) ) can do a quick primer at some point.  I have zero knowledge about Linux other than I know those that use it, love it.  I'm especially concerned come January that we won't be able to use IP2IP via Windows 7.  I doubt that will be the case, but just want to be sure.

 

Appreciate the info and your insights.

You mean IP vs IP? That would be doable on Wine. It's supposed to play 1:1 like as if it were on a Windows machine.

I'll test this out sometime this weekend.

I've considered several times moving to Linux. About once a year I have a good long month of weighing options but needing Windows for gaming and for using specific audio, video and other random applications, I always end up in the same place thinking about how often I'll need to boot back into Windows and that that will become annoying over time. About 90% of the games I want to play have some form of incompatibility with Wine, I tend to not play any of the games that are popular enough on PC to get community support.

You can always dual boot, and keep that Ubuntu partition small just for MVP :)

So could you give a quick armchair primer on this?  Or point in the correct direction?  So Linux is obviously the major system.  Ubuntu vs. Wine is the current name of the OS?  It would allow for a regular install of MVP just like Windows?

Ubuntu is the OS. It's Linux, just a specific distribution of it.  

Wine is the application within Ubuntu that will emulate a Windows environment in order for you to play MVP without an issue.

Well, apparently you have to be really careful which one you install first and even then there can be problems, as someone once told me in another forum:

 

"Yes, the Windows partition will be treated as its own drive, and the GNU/Linux distro install will be treated as its own drive. HOWEVER, please be aware that the two OSes can in some cases interact with each other. For example Microsoft has at some occasions released update to Windows 10 which breaks GRUB. One example of this was the Creator's update which for seemingly no reason created a hidden partition after the first partition (thus changing the partition table on the HDD, which creates a mismatch between it and where GRUB looks for files)."

 

Here's the rest of my thread for context when I was trying to see if I could run Linux for older games and as a main OS.

 

Also, keep in mind, if Windows 7 is working for someone (me, in this case) offline, then Linux has no purpose for being used and could just be a hassle with people's hardware and peripherals not being compatible. Then, there's the annoyance of finding a distro that is the best combination of community supported and easy enough for beginners.

Can confirm that the MVP 2019 mod from MVP 2K Caribe site runs on Win10. Also have MVP 2005 (All 5 patches installed, no mods) running in Win10 by cloning my game cds and mounting CD2 on Virtual drive. Using  ResChanger tool to play in 1920x1080. 

 

Normally play MVP 2005 mods on my Win7 PC, but wanted to try running on my Win10 Gaming PC. Will keep an eye on this thread to see if anyone comes up with a way to run MVP 2005 with mods on Win10.

 

 MVP 2012 and 2015 mods start up but CTD when loading in Play now. Same CTD with MVP 2017 mod from MVP 2K Caribe.

So having read this thread and also bashing my head against the windows 10 wall I was wondering...  SInce I have windows 10 pro could I use hyper-v to run a ubuntu vm on my windows 10 to then run wine and mvpbaseball 2005?  I would rather not run a dual boot...

I don't know how it would handle 3D rendering if the OS is not native

So I have been trying to play this game for a few years now and I cannot even get it installed. My son built his own gaming PC for modern games and we tried to install MVP 2005 with original discs only to be stopped about 65% through because he runs his computer on Windows 10 and it will not work. I have a crappy Windows 8 laptop, which I do not want to go through the trouble of getting a dedicated graphics card to work, otherwise I also have 3 MACs.  I am actually looking to have my son build me a new gaming PC. My question is, what will work with a new gaming PC? Would I have to buy an external hard drive and partition it to get the game to work on a new gaming PC? Is using LINUX OS on a new gaming PC possible? Is there any newer computer I can buy to get this game to work? Could I partition a hard drive or use a virtual PC to install the game on one of my older MACs? I am just looking to see what option might be the best for computers I already own, or on a new gaming PC.

Thanks in advance team,

I really appreciate all of the work in this forum.

Pretty sure your question has been asked and answered throughout this and other related threads.  Please research those please.

Yeah it is difficult to actually determine, which options work and which don't. I have searched these threads pretty thoroughly. I really want to know about Linux, and potentially partitioning a hard drive on a Mac or new gaming PC. I do not know much about that. I just want to buy a brand new pre-built, but I know that won't work with Windows 10.

My question is, what will work with a new gaming PC? MVP is not compatible with Windows 10.

 

Would I have to buy an external hard drive and partition it to get the game to work on a new gaming PC? It's a disc based title, so I'm not sure where the external drive comes into play unless it's to retain mods when MVPMods goes down?

 

Is using LINUX OS on a new gaming PC possible? Getting Linux solely for MVP is like a last resort option, not something I would really recommend first.

 

Is there any newer computer I can buy to get this game to work? See first response. Windows 7 is the last known OS that is confirmed to work with MVP.

 

Could I partition a hard drive or use a virtual PC to install the game on one of my older MACs? It's a disc based title, so I'm not sure.

Your best bet is to find an older machine with Windows 7 with a video card (for best visuals, it can't be integrated on-board graphics) and install the game on that machine as it will likely have a disc drive.

Thanks for help. I may be able to get it to work on my Windows 8 with the graphics card like Gordo suggested. 

Do you know if this specific one would work?

I know very little about purchasing and hooking up graphics cards.

I mean any current card would work as long as there is a driver pack for Windows 7

Alright so I busted out an old Dell PC from 2011-2012 with Windows Vista on it. I have been communicating with Yankee4Life, who has been a great help so far, especially because he can play the game on this operation system. However, I am having one issue with installation. I am attempting to install disc one and it gets to about 52% and then will not continue. I tried putting the 2nd disc in to continue installation and that does not work either? I am getting an error message with a file transfer error with jpeg30 image. Is this a common error for anyone else? Any way to get past this point to complete installation? I appreciate all of the help and insight from everyone.

Thanks all.

Wipe it out if you can and put Windows 7 or XP on it.

Thanks for the advice. I will back up old information that my family might need (old photos), and wipe it clean.

Do you know of a working link that would work for the Windows 7 or XP operating systems once I clean the PC? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Good afternoon fellas. I wiped an old Dell computer from 2008 with Windows Vista clean, and am trying to install using the original disks, but am running into a roadblock. Does anyone know about an installation error from disc 2 reading A problem occurred when trying to transfer the file 'E:\data\stadium\aa01nite.big' from the media?

 

It gets to about 65% install and I get stuck here any time. I feel like I am so close but just cannot get this game downloaded on my Windows Vista PC, and I wiped it clean.
