    I need a tutorial and I'll have a go.

    So basically, by updating faces through the years, there's no need for a new models.big file. Is that it? Because you effectively update the faces yourself thereby changing the models.big file? Sorry, just trying to understand how it works.

    Ok, I see. So, what's the way to get from the 2012 mod to today? Just add faces from 2012 to 2018 as thoroughly as I can and then get Gordo's latest roster?

    UPDATE: I've copied over the models.big and uniforms.big from the MVP15 mod. But when I go to play an exhibition game it crashes. Is there a way to do this other than just copying those files over and replacing the previous ones?

    Total Classics 1951

    Loving this. Every minute of it. I'm learning so much about 1951 teams playing with the Dodgers. It's taken me down a whole path (with my trusty Baseball Encyclopedia, of course) looking at Youtube videos and websites with material from the era. The only thing I wish is that you guys had used Patti Page's original Mercury 1951 "Detour" instead of this 66 re-recording. Country and rockabilly were huge in the 50s, that swingin' version with brass is a very post-Sinatra Capitol concept album sound. But I am being admittedly extremely picky about something nobody cares about. Thank you for the hours of enjoyment so far and still to be had.

    MVP Baseball 2005

    Where did you install it to? Did you create a different folder from the default? I know some older games work better just being installed to the C drive and not in any further folders. But that may not be the case here, I'm just shooting out ideas that I've heard of even with some EA PC games from that time. But before all that... Jim825 was telling you to read the Windows 10 thread because if you have the original game and if you've read that thread, then you'll know that it's not playable on Windows 10. Those that have done so appear to be running copies with modified executables that are not in any way supported here, you should check the guidelines of the site. Not saying you're doing this, but getting it to work tends to involve things that this site doesn't support.

    Wait, let me ask something... the importing of the models.big from the 15 mod to my 12 install potentially stops any cybers from 2012-2015 from working right? Because when the models.big was created for 2015 surely several players from before in the database could have been deleted, renamed, etc. (retirees, etc) Is that correct? Because if so, there isn't much point in getting anything from before 2015 anyway. Let me clarify, I'm saying... you go along from 2012 as though you were downloading cybers and stuff from the time in chronological order, maybe you only grabbed big update packs along the way because if one or two guys you'd never see had incorrect faces, so what. But the moment you got to 2015, would any faces created from that point have the 15 models.big in mind? If someone makes faces today, what models.big do they reference? I don't think anyone ever says.

    Right, like if the only place a new stadium was created is somewhere between 2012 and 2015, I won't have it. Or uniforms or something. But if I have the latest models.big then any faces I import should work fine. I don't need the progression of faces, portaits, etc, I just need the latest available.

    The point is, I used to go MVP05 -- MVP15 and then update from there to today. I have all that stuff downloaded already. This time, I've gone to MVP12 instead. Can I just use the stuff I have to update from 2015 forward? Or do I have to get updates that run from 2012-2015 as well? That's what I'm asking.

    Question... I always used to update to a current MVP by way of the 15 mod. Had a massive Windows crash, had to reinstall, long story, but the point is I'm now up and running and gonna go through the 12 mod as @Gordo has always suggested. I have a bunch of mods I apply to get to 2018 from 2015. So can I just go through those again if the ultimate goal is to get to 2018? Or will it be necessary for some reason to get all these faces, cybers, etc for the period from 2012-2015 as well? Shouldn't be necessary right?

    Did you see that someone already designed a team exporter tool? 😱

    Probably related, the downloads area isn't sorted by sub-categories either for each game. But, of course, when you get time.

    That's cool news because some of the designs on reddit are getting really good.

    I agree. Look, it's not a strategy, sim heavy, realism in a can experience. It's a fun game with quite good physics that feels smooth and somehow still permits ridiculous levels of customisation if you can just let go of the comic book look and have fun. Besides, the characters used to promo the game are all extreme caricatures, you can if my memory serves me correctly, make realistic looking players. So the stadiums are all silly, so what. The Show level realism isn't what this game is for. And neither was Baseball Stars, or RBI, or Power Pros and all of those were fun too.
