  1. I think I asked this before. And Glass, the creator of this program is no longer available. In order to make it easier to do rosters, it would be great if when we do a search for the player you can simply hit "enter" on your keyboard instead of clicking find. I know that sounds picky, but when you're going through hundreds of names and multiple multiple transactions, it would be a real time saver. I may have to try to use joytokey to create that command if no one can manipulate the program itself. Addendum: joytokey won't work as there is no keyboard command for "Find" in the program.

    Totte Ultimate Rosters

    I think when this site changed over, many older URL's got broken. You'd need to find someone who downloaded that file and kept it around.

    External hard drive question

    I concur on 7 over Vista. Plus you'll have security updates as M$ doesn't support Vista any longer. I don't see any advantage in booting from an external HDD either. As far as companies, I've had a Lacie 1 TB for I don't know how long. I don't keep it on continually and only use it for sporadic data backups. It's been a beast.

    Random Thoughts On A Sunday Morning Updated To 11-18

    Wow, the Lions AND the Cowboys on Thanksgiving day ..... I am shocked and amazed! 😏
  5. Since time is marching on and the MVP cyberface production has dropped off with the exiting of Jed and Co. (understandably so ..... making cyberfaces may be the hardest mod to produce), I would like to see the unwritten rule of not touching someone else submission from an early time loosened up. After all, we're, number one, talking about some modders who don't come around here any longer and, number two, we're talking about cyberfaces that were good for its time when released, but are in great need of updating. In that vein, when I started on my rosters venture, I initially built it off an existing set. I just simply brought in piece by piece over time, ways that I saw the rosters should be formulated and tweaked. But I didn't enter every single name of every single player. That would have been foolish as highly competent bases were already there. I don't see any harm in taking an existing cyberface, like an Andrew Miller for example, who has a clean shaven, younger face in his MVP cyberface latest edition, and updating it to capture the facial hair and any other subtle tweaks to make it look more realistic and up to date. I think we've been too restrictive on treating these older submissions like they are sacred. Let's not forget that we're using the likeness of a player's image to begin with and he never gave us permission to do that. Hell, if I can figure it out, I'd do this myself and still may. I just don't want to see the main core of this community go into an uproar if this is done. Sure, don't touch the ones of the guys who are still clearly around here, unless you ask permission as a courtesy, but let's see if we can continue to breath life into this game by this enhancement. Opinions?

    MVP Roster Pitching Styles Assistance Wanted

    Thanks but I'm looking for help with entire teams. I'm up to and completed the Chicago White Sox (alphabetical order by city).
  7. Hey guys..... I'm looking to update all pitching styles for those I placed on the MLB level for the end of season rosters in preparation for the 2019 rosters. With the aid of pitcherlist.com site, I would like to nail down as close as possible pitching styles so that when I move forward, it won't be as difficult to update the roster when players move around and when I have to create new pitchers. The method would be pretty easy. 1. Simply have pitcherlist.com open to the team that you're working on. 2. Have MVPedit open with the same team and work your way down the list of pitchers; you don't need to actually change anything in the editor; just simply report which "Delivery" you think should be there; most will probably not need changing. 3. To get an easy preview of what the pitch type could be, it would be easiest to have a windowed version of the game showing next to the pitcherlist website for easy comparison. The set up would look something like this: It wouldn't matter what pitcher you pick in the game as you're just using that to look at the different "Pitcher Delivery" methods that the game uses in game. In the example above, I have Anderson from the Angels selected, but I'm onto Bedrosian and decided he's pretty close to Pedro Martinez' style. MVPedit is mainly used here to get the pitchers we'd need to look at and seeing the labels of the generic deliveries (in the MVP game they're called "Style 1 -11". In MVPedit, they're more descriptive and we'd mainly be watching for over the head windups versus not). The way to make the MVP game run in window mode can be done simply like this: take your existing shortcut to the game and make a copy. Rename the copy something like "MVP Window Mode" or whatever you'd want. So on my desktop I have this: Then right click on this new shortcut and choose "Properties". In the "Shortcut" tab, "Target:" window area, simply put in < -win> at the very end (no bracket and there is a space before the hyphen). Apply and close. That's it. It should look like this: Pitcherlist.com, however, does not have every single pitcher. So especially for the rookies, you may need to go to YouTube and find a good example of their pitch style/delivery. Additionally, you could use, http://pitchfx.texasleaguers.com, to determine the release point as some are between side arm and a true 3/4's. (After you find the player, you have to put something in the first date range field. It's easy to simply change it to 2017). Lastly, there does not appear to be any pitching styles in the game where 1) the pitcher starts out low, belt-level, with the ball and 2) the pitcher claps the ball back to the glove unless using one of the old classic styles (doubtful anyone uses those any longer) or some that use an over the head wind up approach (e.g., Bob Gibson). Any takers? PM me please so we can divvy up the work and not duplicate efforts. Thanks in advance.

    I'm half thinking this is not a serious question. There is no other site like this other than MVP Caribe which is completely Spanish.

    Ok, actually got some smooth video even with an older version of Fraps. This is compressed and I think it still looks good. The content isn't anything real exciting as I'm not editing anything but it shows how for little money you could get a decent 2nd computer and run MVP very well. No need to wrestle with Windows 10. (Not sure what happened with the first video, there were only 3). Looks better if you do the pop out and keep it smaller or just download an watch via VLC player. They're very small files. I'll try to do a larger sized one). mvp ex 1.mp4 mvp ex2.m4v mvp ex3.m4v

    The MVP 2005 and Windows 10 Thread

    An update. Things are settling in much better. The Radeon card and DVI cable both arrived today. Still only running 4 GB of RAM. Expecting the 8 GB package to arrive later this week. Regardless the game is pretty much running like a champ and looking good even on 1024 X 768 thanks to the HDR Bloom tweak and the tweaks you can make with the AMD Catalyst Center. Here's some screen shots: So essentially for around $75 - 80 you can create a solid backup computer running XP or Win 7 (I've seen some XP discs on sale at ebay for under $10-15) which will play MVP very well. I'll try to get some video, but usually not easy.

    I hope so. The vid card slot layouts on this motherboard seem backwards for the most part. But then again, I don't look at this kind of stuff often enough and keep up with terminology. I think between this and the 8 GB of RAM, it should play smooth on 1280 x 1024. I'm going to try to push it to 1600 x 1200, but not sure it will matter. Just want to demonstrate that you can get/build a pretty cheap system for this game and others that for whatever reason struggle with Windows 10.

    The MVP 2005 and Windows 10 Thread

    I'm going to be upgrading a Lenovo Optiplex 740 I recently bought primarily for Windows 7 and MVP as well as anything else that may be problematic to run on my new Windows 10 PC. Found this deal on Craigslist for $40 and decided that I needed minimally a 1 GB vid card and I'll max out the memory if I could find a good deal on ebay for something compatible. Over a short time found this ASUS Radeon EAH5450 Express Video Card on ebay used for $15 And today was able to get 2 new Kingston 4 gig DDR2 mem sticks for under $15 making the entire set up under $70! So I have a back up PC and now something that can run MVP independent of my W10 PC as well. I'll try to upload some pics of how this looks and let you know how it plays as well. Capturing video has always been a problem for me however.... I hate Fraps. Addendum: So actually that card turned out to be too wide. Also, I mistakenly thought it was a 1 gig card and turns out it's a half gig. But able to snag this Radeon HD6450 for less and it is a gig:

    Poll: Which team would win the World Series?

    You can't expect anything less for the team that had the best record and ran away with it early. Pearce, Eovaldi and Price seemed to be the wild cards.
  15. If you do only MLB, then yes, some minor leaguers will be better. The game might also bringup some minor league pitchers based on stamina alone. Again, hard coded. Alternately, if you do all teams for global editing, it can double edit those guys on the rookies teams because they are really not separate, just mirrors of the same guys on their respective teams. It's a pain in the ass. Too few foul balls have plagued this game and no one has seemed to find anything you can do. Some of the questions you're asking are simply trial and error. See what you find and then you can tell us.
