    Poll: Which team would win the World Series?

    I'd like to see Utley get one more..... but I think the Red Sox are just too much a juggernaut this year. And remember, I had MVP sim and not only did the Sox win the W.S., but Betts will win the MVP for the W.S.
  2. Schordese is right. This is why I put out the PC v PC rosters I did. You'll find when you sim using these rosters, you get pretty good end of season stats, but the playability may not be what you're looking for.

    The MVP 2005 and Windows 10 Thread

    Honestly I didn't know HP even made motherboards. I was about to build, but by the time my shopping cart filled up I was over budget. I found a guy in my area who is selling a Dell Optiplex 740 SFF on Craigslist with some pretty good specs for only $40 ..... now it's a matter of reaching the guy!

    The MVP 2005 and Windows 10 Thread

    So the outcome here was that VMWare was not adequate. Graphically it wasn't bad at all, but there is a delay in gamepad output and sound synchronization. And I had set the VMWare to use 4 GB of memory (I assume virtual memory). I can't complain about that as I don't think VMWare was set up for gaming. I'm more upset with the whole Windows / BIOS changes and making it so difficult to get the inputs to work after partitioning your drive and attempting to install another, legitimate OS. I'm not that happy with HP either with the extremely limited settings they have on their BIOS screen.

    The MVP 2005 and Windows 10 Thread

    Well, the HP Pavilion showed up and I was surprised at how little space there was to maneuver around. So I partitioned my HDD and attempted to install Windows 7 there. What an absolute fiasco. Between BIOS being out of date, the way BIOS is done now with all types of compliance needs and configurations I was really getting pissed with Windows/HP (btw, HP tech support was a joke ... after waiting for a half hour... they simply disconnected the call). I finally got to the Windows 7 install screen and I lost my keyboard and mouse functions, even on just USB2. This new rig doesn't come with PS/2 inputs, which I heard was an easy fix. I searched high and low to no avail. So I'm playing around now with VMWare as I finally was able to install Windows 7 to that. Installing MVP now and I'll come back with a report on how it functions, if at all. Otherwise, I'll probably be buying a small form or mini PC barebones just to run MVP and any other older programs that may require. But what a bunch of absolute shit this has become as I haven't had to mess with BIOS and such for quite a long time. Absolutely ridiculous.

    I would then upon reboot, the system should ask to which I want to boot. I should probably go into the BIOS and set the boot order.

    Ok thanks man. I did a dual boot with my current rig and my main drive is on W7. My 2ndary drive was just storage until I added W10 to it. I rarely logged into it other than to play around with things. I'm going to have to wipe this small HDD and install W7 on it now that my new rig will have 10 on the main HDD. I'll have to try to disconnect the main HDD and see if I can install 7 with the disc I have.

    Aren't .cab files collectively like that for install of the entire game?

    So what was the order of how you did this? 1 SSD w/ Win 10, then disconnect; connect 2 SSD and install 7? And what do you use to boot up properly?

    Batting stances: the curiosity and the fury.

    Maybe YouTube clips, if available, might make this more interesting.

    Did you start with Windows 10 and partition in 7, the other way around, or do you have 2 HDDs?

    MLB Roster Update portrait Question?

    Cyberfaces are not updated every year, so you have to look what's been done since 2015 and decide which versions you want. There is no compilation of all the cyberfaces past 2015 (unless you go the MVP Caribe route). Portrait updates for many MLBers were done magnificently this year. But you may still need portraits from 2017 first, then add on 2018's.

    I think people have tried VM with not so ideal results. I'm about to get a new rig myself... hopefully SSD drive and all and you can rest assure that one will have W7 on it.

    You seem to know your way around computers and specs. Therefore, why don't you dual boot to Win 7 or XP and play the game through one of those OS. Easiest fix I can think of.
