  1. Post Your Classic Games

    Ok, I copy-pasted the message again. I do think that sometimes, and then when I look at what sports games are today, I quickly realise how badly they would have ruined it and messed it up by now. I'm glad we have it just the way it is. I played a few innings last night and I say this as someone who's played games for a long time and knows a thing or two about mechanics and interface, this game plays a lot better than its graphics suggest and I think it's because like all games late 90s - mid 00s, they focussed more on stats and physics because graphics were still being played with.

    Really? I can see it in our conversation. Have a look. Love it! Man, more people need to play this game. Literally a living encyclopedia of baseball and to be honest despite it's simple graphics engine it still plays a decent game of baseball. The old teams are reason enough to play it. You'll never get another game that so thoroughly represents so many years.

    I'm good at digging for stuff online. Check your private message I sent you. No rush.

  5. High Heat 2003 and controllers

    Ok, cool. Do you think that would work on the demo, though? That's all I have.
  6. High Heat 2003 and controllers

    Ok, another update only because I can't be the only person who's ever gonna come across this issue and my online searches for the past four days are proof that NOBODY else is talking about this online but us here. Both of these are on Windows 7: The HH2002 demo runs fine, and acknowledges the controller, but only playing in XP Service Pack 3 compatibility. The HH2003 runs fine, but for some reason only works well with the controller on Windows 2000 compatibilty. Which is bizarre considering it's one year newer than 2002. No idea what that's about. Now, is 2002 supposed to be choppy when it goes to the outfield High camera and when batting or pitching from the Pitcher camera? Is that just the way the game is? Or is there a setting that smoothes that out?

    You should have a look again, it looks like he did post some uniforms for 2002. Thanks for the video! I figured some things out with the controller/running the game but I'll put that info in the thread I made about the controller.
  8. Post Your Classic Games

    Cool. That would be good enough, I suppose. We think there will be uniforms?
  9. High Heat 2003 and controllers

    Ok, interesting development... I ran a HH2002 demo on my dualboot on Win7 and I set the compatibility settings to Win98/ME and the controller was actually acknowledged in the game. Ok, so I need to play in Win98 compatibility if I want the game to run with the wireless controller. But then, the game crashes with DirectX issues. ...sigh...so frustrating. tiny update: 2003 playing fine. Good game. 2002 demo now sees the controller all the time as well. But freezes EVERY time it goes to load the demo exhibition game. If this is gonna happen it will be tough to justify buying the game on Amazon as I'm unlikely to be able to return it once it's opened. So questions... 1. Does anyone know if that demo from the time was buggy at all? 2. Is there a special way to run 2002 on Windows 7? Every sompatibility mode freezes on the loading screen. Thanks guys!

    Is there any chance that anyone would be willing to make a short one at-bat video of HH2002 with a classic roster installed? Something recognisable like a 27 Yankees or a 51 Dodgers or something? Just to see old uniforms in action with audio.
  11. Overlay FOX - MLB 2K18

    That looks fantastic. Really well done. Any chance you'd be willing to make an MLB Network one too? That would be more generically appropriate for all teams. Just an opinion.
  12. Questions For Any Older PC Baseball Games?

    Yeah, just like the TurboGrafx-16. Ridiculously expensive but World Class Baseball was great and looked fantastic at the time even for a 16-bit system. The thing with NeoGeo was that it was what was used in a lot of arcade machines so it looked better than any of the other consoles and better than most PC games. What set the NEoGeo apart was that it had a 24 bit GPU and a Yamaha sound chip that made it sound better than anything else. But neither was worth what they sold for outside Japan.
  13. High Heat 2004 PC GPU issue

    I love that PCSX2 exists but honestly, without fail, every game I try to play has framerate issues. Not a single sports game I've tried on it works without slowdowns, choppy audio, framerate issues, etc. NCAA 07, NFL 2K5, NHL 2K-anything, all of them play with problems. It takes so long playing with settings that I just end up putting the game on my PS2. Always works like a charm. Anyway, thanks for the info @Kccitystar about Renderware, etc. That's explained the issue I was having. I've just chosen to play at the highest 4:3 at 32bit and leave it at that. Looks fine, plays smoothly.
  14. Questions For Any Older PC Baseball Games?

    That's another interesting topic as well. Sorry, gonna pipe in on that... First one ever was Sporting News Baseball (MS-DOS). Hours, days, years of fun with that. No stat tracking so my brother and I kept our own in a notebook. It was the PC person's version of RBI but with a database of classic players as well as current MLB players. The next was probably RBI. Never liked Baseball Stars which makes everyone my age go, "WHAT?!?! How could you NOT like Baseball Stars?!" Even back then I was saying, "...why can't the players names be longer than 8 characters?". A hacker/modder in training.
  15. High Heat 2004 PC GPU issue

    Get yourself a Sony CPD if you can. They were the best and lasted longest. It's not just a visual preference you have, there are several older games that actually took advantage of scanlines to produce their images. It's why Super Mario Bros. never looks quite right on a progressive scan LED screen. Not to dissuade you, but any monitor you find these days is unlikely to be in good shape or last you a long time. CRT monitors almost needed more care than TVs because the static images on computers caused people to burn them in a lot. Go ask around on avsforum.com. You'll find the best guidance there.
