    Total Classics 1979

    Version 1.0.0


    Total Classics 1979 By Jim825 & dennisjames71 The Pittsburgh Pirates led the league in outfits during the 1979 baseball season. Their arsenal of uniforms was so vast -- black caps and yellow jerseys, yellow caps and white jerseys -- that they had 64 possible combinations at their disposal. The Pirates' lineup of players was just as varied as their line of garb. They featured an outfielder who looked like a Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker (6' 5", 230-pound Dave Parker), and a pitcher who looked more like a placekicker (6' 4", 170-pound Kent Tekulve). And, of course, the Pirates had Willie "Pops" Stargell, an inspiring presence at bat and in the clubhouse. The Pirates, whose theme song was "We Are Family," won the National League East by 2 games over Montreal. The World Champion Yankees didn't even come close to repeating, as they lost two key players. Relief ace Goose Gossage was sidelined for two months by an injury he incurred in a fight with teammate Cliff Johnson, and catcher Thurman Munson was killed in an airplane crash in August. The Baltimore Orioles ended the Yankees' three-year divisional reign, winning 102 games. Cy Young winner Mike Flanagan (23-9) paced the pitching staff, while veteran Ken Singleton (111 RBI) spearheaded the offense. They beat the Brewers by 8 games and the Red Sox by 11-1/2. The American League West was tight to the end, as four teams ranked within 6 games of first place. The California Angels, starring MVP Don Baylor (139 RBI), took their first division crown. The big news in the senior circuit was Pete Rose's preseason defection to the Philadelphia Phillies. His arrival did not promote the Phils to champs just yet, as they settled for fourth place. The Rose-less Reds were still good enough to win the National League West. Though the Big Red Machine was losing its hitting punch, its pitching was as strong as ever -- Tom Seaver went 16-6. Pittsburgh swept Cincinnati in the National League Championship Series, though it took two extra-inning wins to do it. Stargell cracked two homers as the Pirates outscored the Reds 15-5. Baltimore defeated California in four games in the American League Championship Series, which included three nail-biting finishes and a shutout. The Orioles and the Bucs battled through a seven-game 1979 World Series. After losing the opener, Pittsburgh evened it up when Manny Sanguillen drove in Ed Ott with a ninth-inning single. Baltimore won the next two games to go up three games to one, but the Pirates stormed back. They won the final three games -- 7-1, 4-0, 4-1 -- to take the 1979 World Series. ------------------------------------------- The Total Classics 1979 mod brings you the sights and sounds of the 1979 baseball season.

    TIT error

    It’s all good.

    TIT error

    That's true, but I simply ran a search with a few words from the error message and clicked the option to search for posts with ALL the words. Just to be clear, I wasn't criticizing him. I was just saying that it wasn't too hard to find the posts that I found.

    TIT error

    Did you search the forums? I just did and found a few other posts regarding this issue. There was one post where the author suggested running TiT in administrator mode.

    Newb with Face and Portrait questions

    A portrait is the picture that shows up in the overlay at the bottom of the screen when the player comes up to bat. Typically, it is a head shot of the player wearing his cap. A face file contains the cyberface that shows up on the player in the game. You can install one or the other or both. It doesn't matter. What DOES matter is if the roster references a portrait or cyberface that you don't have installed. If a portrait is missing, the game will run but the portrait will not appear in the overlay. Just a blank silhouette will appear. If a cyberface is missing, however, the game will crash. It's hard to find face or portrait packs any more. If you look at the downloads, you will typically see faces or portraits released individually or perhaps a handful of them in a single mod. Sometimes, you will find portrait packs released for an entire team, however, those don't typically appear until just before (or after) the season starts when team rosters have been finalized. Hope this helps.
  6. I'll do what I can to help -- beta testing, creating the Installer, etc. Just let me know . . .

    2019 BaseUp! Rosters

    6, 23, 49, 387 . . . What day and what time will they be released? I figured I'd be the first to ask, since you know you will be getting those questions soon.

    mvpedit problem

    The database folder is where you import or export rosters. The data folder is the one you specify in order to see faces and portraits. It’s always been that way.

    mvpedit problem

    In this case, it looks like he's trying to import the .dat files, however, as you said, that doesn't help much. We can see the "No picture found" message, but this screenshot doesn't show what data folder MVPEdit is using. LetsGoFish2015 - Show us a picture of the Tools->Options window.

    He doesn't anymore . . .

    can't install portraits in mvp edit

    There is a whole thread dedicated to problems getting the game to work under Windows 10. It just won’t run reliably. Some people say they have gotten it to work, but most haven’t. It’s not surprising since this is a 13 year old game.

    Hit by Pitches

    It's been a while since I have looked at the details of the datafiles, however, I don't believe that the granularity of the file is such that you can specify where a batter gets hit. I believe that you can only increase or decrease the frequency of players getting hit by pitches.

    Proposal: Tweaking Existing Cyberfaces

    The rule has always been that if you wanted to mod someone else’s work that you asked the original modder for permission and then credited them when the new mod was posted. Crediting them is as simple as stating that the new mod is based upon the original modder’s work. In in the event that the original modded was no longer around and could not be contacted, simply giving them credit was good enough. Based upon this criteria, I see no problem updating older cyberfaces or any other existing mods.

    2018 MLB BaseUp! Rosters (End of Season)

    Just updating the rosters alone isn't enough because they reference cyberfaces that were created over the years after the game was released. To prevent crashes, you will need to download and update all of the cyberfaces that have been added. I do not know of any comprehensive download that includes all of the cyberfaces required for these rosters.

    Mlb2k18 roster

    Most likely when he uploads it here. He posted those images 8 months ago and they haven't appeared yet, so I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for them.
