MVP not starting after Windows 7 9-8-15 Updates

Recommended Posts

I know this topic is kinda old now but I finally got a copy of the game and installed per kccitystars instructions. The game at first gave me the administrator issue, fixed that with the registry edit but now when the game loads it just says it has stopped working. Not sure what to do from here, I have attached a screenshot as well.

Thanks

Did you install the games from MVP discs or from MVP online download of the game?

I installed from the dics following kccitystars guide but I have now figured it out. I had to disable my SLI configuration as well as shut off my secondary monitor so that the cpu does not recognize it. Thanks for the quick response though gordo.

Very glad you figured that out.  Didn't mean to insinuate anything, but you are new around here and we have no way of knowing.

The MVP 15 mod was not working well for some, including me.  I would try the MVP 12 mod in its entirety first and if thats stable, mod up from there.

Clear your registry with Ccleaner.  Install MVP 2005 with official patch #3.  See if that runs.

I tried as you suggested, i uninstalled everything, ran Ccleaner and then did a fresh install with patch 3 and still getting the mvp2005.exe has stopped working error. It will show the screen with roger clemons as it starts to load then the screen flickers and I get the error.

So I don't know what to do here. Running Win10 Home, Asus core i7 laptop with Geforce GTX 850m. Did the registry edit, rebooted, game does not run. Clean install from CDs, patched to last patch (as the install guide here said). When I double-click I get the spinning circle a couple of times and then nothing.

I was able to run the game on my old Dell Inspiron 600m somewhat (processor is below what's required) but I'd like to not have to break out a 13 year old laptop to run one game.

Thanks in advance.

I know exactly where you need to start and it's not here. This thread is about problems running the game under Windows 7. The subject of the thread should have been self explanatory.

 

There is however a Windows 10 thread in the forums that goes into detail problems some people have run up against in that operating system.

Had multiple tabs open and picked the wrong one. My bad.

was this issue due strictly to the update, or was also affected by sp1?

I just bought this game from yard sale cheap and installed on my windows 7 machine - can run the game without a problem. I would like to update the rosters to this year. how many mods are there for me to download to get to the '19 rosters and such.  appreciate it.

Here's basically what you want to do.  (I'm not including the MVPCaribe uploads here):

 

1.  Install the game and apply official patch #3.  This will be your "base" install from which you can have many other versions of the game.

2.  Copy this "base" folder and rename it to anything you like.

3.  Grab one of the total conversion mods ... MVP 15 was the last, and some had trouble running it.  If you don't like it you can repeat the process with one of the earlier versions.  Follow the instructions to install to that copied folder, it's not difficult.

4. The latest rosters typically will crash if you don't install the latest cyberfaces.  Otherwise, you'll have to convert all of the custom faces to one of the generic numbers (901-915).  There is no full pack of cyberfaces .. you'll have to go through and download them.

5. Install the latest rosters with the instructions on the page..... again, not difficult.

6. PM me for more details and instructions before you do step #4.

The game uses a disk verification method (Safedisc/SecuROM) that has been discontinued in Windows 10 and patched out on all of the OS'es below 10.

Since I own the game LEGALLY but have Windows 10, I run it with no problems......... I know that it's not supposed to be discussed for people who don't own the game but many of us actually do.

Now look, if you knew that we could not discuss these kind of things in here why did you do it? This is covered very clearly in the rules of the website. It's the fifth rule I believe if you want to go and check it out. You have been here twelve years now so you should know this really cannot be talked about. That's all I want to say about this. Have a good evening.
