  1. You can do this...but I never did because it would be a TON of work. You'd have to change the LOC files, reorganize team IDs, probably rebuild divisions, likely screw up the hardcoding with the jersey files... It just wasn't worth it.

  3. I highly recommend going the PC route. I spent years doing the Xbox conversion stuff and it's just too much work and way too buggy. And there's not nearly as many offerings for Xbox.
  4. When I would do the 2012/2013/2015 mods with full minor leagues, I'd have to go through a process of exporting every single team and then re-importing every single team. I'd always do this when I was otherwise done with the roster. To this day, I have no explanation for what was wrong, I just know I would get crashes unless I did this.

    Total Classics 1948 By kyleb The 1948 baseball season saw many surprising events, new records, the death of Babe Ruth, and a few close calls. Baseball came within one game of having an all-Boston World Series in 1948, as the Braves went 91-62 to take the National League flag by 6 1/2 games over St. Louis, and the Red Sox finished the regular season tied with Cleveland at 96-58. The star of the National League was 27-year-old, second-time MVP Stan Musial, who turned in the finest all-around year of his career. "Stan the Man" led the National League in batting, runs, RBI, hits, total bases, doubles, triples, on base average and slugging. He came within one home run of leading the National League in every major offensive category. The Braves were led by Bob Elliott -- who hit 23 homers and drew 131 walks, and .300 hitters Eddie Stanky, Al Dark, Tommy Holmes, Mike McCormick, and Jeff Heath. On the pitching side, the Boston fans' cry was "Spahn and Sain and two days of rain." Johnny Sain went 24-15 to lead the National League in wins, complete games and innings. Warren Spahn, 27, went 15-12 with 16 complete games and 257 innings. No other Braves pitcher won more than 13 games. Apparently, there were enough rain-outs that Boston led the National League in team ERA, complete games, and fewest walks allowed. The American League race was still up for grabs at the All-Star break with Cleveland, Philadelphia, New York and Boston vying for the title. New York's Joe DiMaggio led the American League in home runs, and the Yanks' Tommy Henrich led in runs and triples. As the second half wore on, however, the best hitting team, Boston, and the best pitching team, Cleveland, rose to the top. The Red Sox featured batting champion Ted Williams, Dom DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky, who was tied with Williams for third in the American League in runs. Williams batted .369, but lost out in the MVP voting to Cleveland shortstop Lou Boudreau, who was runner-up in batting at .355. The Indians' main strength, like the Braves', was pitching. Unlike their National League rivals, however, the Indians staff was a deep one. The Tribe featured two 20-game winners in Gene Bearden and Bob Lemon, a 19-game winner in Bob Feller and spot starters Steve Gromek, Sam Zoldak, and Satchel Paige (who went a combined 24-10). A coin flip determined that the one-game American League pennant playoff would be played at Boston's Fenway Park, and almost 30 years to the day before Bucky Dent's famous home run over the Green Monster, shortstop Boudreau won the pennant for the Indians with two home runs. Cleveland then proceeded to make it a clean sweep of Boston, polishing off the Braves in the World Series. Cleveland's Feller went 0-2, but the Indians beat the Braves in six games on great pitching performances by Bearden (who pitched a shutout in game three), Gromek (who posted one win and a 1.00 ERA), and Lemon (who triumphed in two games). ------------------------------------------- The Total Classics 1948 mod brings you the sights and sounds of the 1948 baseball season.

  6. I'd actually already pulled music for the jukebox. You wouldn't happen to have any era-specific pictures, would you?
  7. Thanks so much for the offers, guys. I'll get what I've got zipped up. I'll send you Dropbox credentials.
  8. Hey all, I've pretty much finished up a Total Classics 1948 mod but need some help with the finishing touches. I could use some help doing the frontend artwork - backgrounds, loading screens and an overlay. I'm just not artistic enough to do much with these. If anyone was able to put together a template in Photoshop, I could do the grunt work to bash out a bunch of screens. Anyone available to help?

    Any idea where I can get a flying car when it becomes available?
  10. I'm struggling to remember, but I feel like someone once told me that the new team audio files had to be the exact same file size as the old team audio files. Not sure if that'll help you or not.
