  1. i tried to fix Kumala's datafile with sliders and I got close but I went back to MD's datafile and my slider set which should be linked on my sig.
  2. 8-16 - Watching my 2 year old trying to play classics like pac-man, dig dug, and excitebike is just awesome. - My best man from my wedding moved back to town Thursday. He is also a graphics animator - Short one today as my child is a little hyper. I'm guessing thats what Pac-man does to you.
  3. - Slow week in the Sandbox Games world. Got some recording done which is a good thing. - I can't get enough of the Phoenix Coyotes saga. - I have never gotten a good answer to this question it's hockey related but it bugs me. Why would the city of Winnipeg build a beautiful new arena with the back thought of getting an NHL team back, and only have the capacity max out at 15,000, when you need at least 18,000? - My boy is developing an arm which makes daddy proud. Last night we had a friend over for dinner, and mommy flung a pea at daddy (perhaps daddy made a smart **** comment) of course my son thought that was funny, and hucked some bread at our guest catching him right between the eyes! Left handed with accuracy daddy is thinking he's a pitcher - Got an original xbox the other day by trading in one game. Hopefully my boy leaves daddy's 360 alone now - Fight Night Round 4 is very well done. A little more sim than the old ones but I think it is solid.
  4. - Sunday or Monday whatever, I was drinking from Friday to Sunday as it was my wife's birthday. - I'll give the Jays credit. They didn't get the offer they wanted and they stuck to their guns. - We made some progress with the graphics engine! still a long way from showing that off but I was excited to see the recent updates! - Wife and son are out of town till Thursday. Man the house is quiet. good for recording! - My wife got the country add on disc for Rock Band 2. At least she didn't make me sing Shania Twain. - I really have to give Sony credit. The Show 09 for the PS2 is a very solid game. I've enjoyed Road to the Show mode, as for me it's a different way to play the game. I'm hoping we can have something like that in our game. - NHL 10 showed off a new feature... Be a GM mode... Wow really? that's the best you could come up with? At least they are working off a very good game this time around rather than adding a useless mode to a bad game. - I could be the single worst player at Gears of War on the planet. 3rd person shooters and Hoop is a terrible combination. - Patsen is on a much deserved vacation. The upside to that is the rest of us can focus on some of the little things we need to do as opposed to waiting to see the next innovation he comes up with. - 3 days of recording ahead of me (sounds like fun )
  5. - Heading out of town for the day - My only question for the day is... Do you really let a GM who will not be back after this season make a trade that will affect your team for the next decade? (Riccardi and Halladay) - Booze really helps keeping your energy up for recording thousands of names ;)
  6. - The best man at my wedding, and my son's godfather was in town this weekend. "The Smoke For Moke" was a good drunk! And if you have never used a smoker to cook ribs you are truly missing out! - Had the most interesting "interview" with a graphical artist that was applying for Sandbox Games this week. I won't say names but the applicant as soon as he found out it was shared ownership and not a salaried job immediately shut off his AIM and didn't turn it on for 24 hours without a word! Classy dude, glad my original instincts were right. - you will notice there is no preview this week from Sandbox Games. The boys have requested doing it bi-weekly and I agreed to try it out. Also Hoop being drunk/hungover all weekend would have made a fine excuse - Am the only guy that really wonders why JP Riccardi has not been canned? Considering I doubt he will be re-signed by the team, would you really want him making the Halladay deal if it gets done? Personally I try to extend Halladay for another 5 years, but if you are going to trade him then you my as well put someone over the barrel! - Wouldn't Soriano make a good DH with the ability to spell off your fielders from time to time? He may be lazy but he can still hit the ball a mile when he wants to hit. - Rented the show 09 for the PS2 this week. Very good ball game, but not the holy grail that some people suggest it is. though I am told the PS3 version is better. Now all I need is a PS3! (I accept donations! ) - I watched the preview to NHL 10 last night on my Xbox 360 and other than board play I am seeing EA going back to just adding fluff. In fairness NHL 08 and NHL 09 were great games. Even if you are not a hardcore hockey fan I would suggest trying it out, the game is that much fun. - I can't say enough about the community at MVPmods when it comes to feedback for the game. It seems everyday I log on and read another good idea that I would have never thought of! - I really love just wandering aimlessly playing Fallout 3. Finding a new surprise every time I play is just great game design! I think I am going to have to start downloading the expansion packs! - With any luck I should have a new animator on our team this week. Cross your fingers.
  7. I had XM and if you listen to the radio enough then it is worth it. Personally I loved the 24 sports stations specific to the sport. However I just dont get to listen to the radio enough anymore.
  8. - I still miss Y4L's PbP in the shout box. But I am glad to have him back at mvpmods! I wasn't sure where else I was going to get tea from! - We have forums on three websites now and a blog on Sim Central! Good to get more people looking at the www.sandbox-games.com. - I had to laugh when I did a google search for "Sandbox Games" we made it on page 10! - Boy we had a passionate discussion on copy protection last night. I have to admit I learned a lot on the subject. - We had a new programmer join the team this week. Rujasu has impressed everyone so far, and it helps that he is a baseball fan too! - The jersey's looked really good in the preview this week imo! - Thank god I'm finally over this pneumonia, should be able to get back to recording this week. - Calvin from "Calvin and Hobbes" and my son are the same person I'm convinced. - Front Page Sports Baseball '98 had some of the most impressive physics and simulation aspects I've ever seen. Really too bad game play was awful! - I have to admit I don't like blogs. But it was fun to go through the comments when we first came up with the "can we make our own game" idea. Isn't that right Trues (I couldn't resist ) - Cheerleaders in baseball? what do you think? - RIP Arturo "Thunder" Gatti. Starting to look like his new wife whacked him allegedly. - The Calgary Flames are going to give me fits this season. We could potentially have half of Team Canada's Olympic Team's Defense. And just signed Chris McGratten. Who is a legitimate heavyweight! This is for sure the Flames will be no fun to play against! - After a couple months of working on this game, I would say my only disappointment would be that more people have not posted on what they would like in their perfect baseball game. We have gotten some great ideas from the people that have posted and thanks to you guys!
  9. the donation tab is in the upper left corner of the main page.
  10. I would say that the death of MVPmods might be a little overblown, but people need to chip in. Even if you can't donate, click on the banner ads, the website gets a couple cents for each click, and it adds up.
  11. That seems to be a reasonable solution. Now I hope that the modders that asked their files to be removed to step up and upload them again.
  12. another option could be a 50Mb a day limit (or whatever makes sense) for non contributors. Along with that have them have to click some ads to get through to the download. I can remember some sites a while back doing that where you had to "vote" (aka click the link) 3 times before you could d/l
  13. I just did a little research myself on the costs of having a server with bandwidth etc. and it looks like 150 bucks a month is a good deal! Check out places like godaddy and the like if you want to see what their hosting costs are. I was shocked at how expensive it is.
  14. Sorry to hear that you had to take this step, but in current economic times it is understandable. Hopefully down the road when things get better we can get the best of both worlds.
  15. - Since no one else has said it I will. Y4L will be tremendously missed by the community as an admin. Thanks for the years of service! I for one loved your style! - Everyone is now sick with this stupid cold. Though I felt well enough to belt out a few songs on Rock Band. Apparently my wife has become a Toby Keith fan out of nowhere. - Slow week here with myself sick, AR out of town, Roy working on a side project, and Loki setting up OGRE. Lets hope everything picks back up this week. - I apparently have to start giving tact lessons to some of the staff! - My son looks like he will go into a private pre school for speech therapy kids (not talking enough at his age) starting in September and the Government pays for it all! - the newest Red vs Blue season started a couple weeks ago! Woohoo! - Speaking of online cartoons I think Unforgotten Realms is a hidden gem of a show. - The Calgary Flames were busy again around draft day. I'll give GM Darryl Sutter one thing, he has grapefruits! And is a stone cold river boat gambler! - Thank God the Islanders drafted John Tavarez with the 1st pick. He brings the Isles some instant star power, and will throw out the first pitch at tonights Mets v Yanks game. Had the Isles picked Hedman (who I would have chosen) Nassau Coliseum would have burned to the ground with the riots that would have ensued. - I'm never talking to Dylan about hockey again. I think I had a mild stroke thanks to that conversation. - The NHL 2004 mods are impressive but does not hold a candle to NHL 09 gameplay. (obviously not the modders fault) If you have a Xbox 360 or PS3 you should own NHL 09. If you don't then get a copy of NHL 2004 because it is the best game out there. (NHL 09 on the last gen consoles and PC sucked. DON'T BUY IT!) - Been playing a little Fallout 3 this week, and am going through the game playing as evil this time. Being super evil is a ton of fun but it's tricky when you try and slaughter an entire town! - I really miss Y4L's play by play of Yankees games in the shoutbox.
