    How'd you swing it on that budget? Just curious. Did you go with a rpi?
  2. Yeah, he'll be better off exporting a file via FTP from a modded console. I think the only other way is with an Action Replay. And then you have to find the homebrew software from like 14 years ago that allowed you to access those files on your computer so you could send them to someone or post them online. Way easier probably to just soft-mod a console. But we won't talk about that here.
  3. I think the play by play audio problems I have may be caused by having gotten to 2018 via MVP 15 instead of 12. I've troubleshooted every other possible source of problems. Nothing makes sense. Basically when I try to add play by play names, TiT gives me that FIFAFS error. I might just give it a go with MVP12, I keep a fresh MVP05 with patch 5 installed at all times. As far as the video hosting goes, I'd just throw it on Vimeo. I put videos on there. It's not a gaming community but it's got good tools for uploading.
  4. Well, it was the bat hitting the ball that sounded like someone had whacked a brick wall with a sopping wet head of a mop. But that was it really. Funny thing is, people (I'm not saying anyone in here, just online in various places) always have a lot of smack to talk about 2K from '02 to '06 like the cartoony look, etc but actually, they never did NHL, NFL, or MLB better than in that period and that period with Visual Concepts and Kush also produced some of the best baseball, hockey, and football games even til today. I'd put NFL 2K5, NHL 2K6 and MLB 2K5 and 2K4 on any list of the best 10 of each of those sports any day of the week.
  5. I know, I know... Interesting games interest me and I always think there's gonna be that ONE person who still thinks that game was fun. I so wish games still added in modes like 2K5's World Series Moments. So much fun. Anyway it plays a great game of baseball and if I had a PC editor, I'd probably go flesh out the whole league just by overwriting existing players because they're all editable but there are so many ratings for every player and I simply don't have the knowledge let alone the time. The answer to the question by the way is 25 players. That's the create player limit.
  6. This is probably a question whose answers are lost in time and space but does ANYone remember playing MLB2K5 and if there was a player creation limit in that era's 2K games? For XBOX, although it only ever came out on XBOX and PS2.
  7. The game alone will not know what to do with a PS2 controller. It isn't a controller it has been programmed to communicate with for obvious reasons. So, you'll have to find software that gets between the controller and the computer and tells Windows what kind of controller you have or at least how to map it. To do that, I'd go find gaming forums or even tech forums and ask there how to get a Windows 7 computer to interact with a PS2 controller. I'm sure there's one or two main programs people who do this play with, you'll just have to ask those communities what they use. Check reddit as well, that can be useful.
  8. If anyone is interested, and still plays these games like I do, I've got a 360 2K8 trade deadline and playoffs updated roster I can share that I worked on. The 2K10 version isn't mine but I know the guy that made it and he'd be fine with sharing it.
  9. Does anyone happen to know if there were ever any mods for the Tony La Russa series? I know that Old Time is essentially an official mod of it but I meant if years later there were any updates to teams, stadiums, rosters etc.
  10. I would love to learn how you did this. 6 months ago, that same FIFAFS error stopped me from being able to continue updating my player audio. So as it stands, I have several that are wrong throughout the league because of this. How did you figure it out?
  11. Hey, thanks so much for the thorough breakdown. I really appreciate it. Probably wouldn't have know about the games you've mentioned without you explaining about them. I have OOTP19, I wonder if it can ever be stripped down completely to the point that it becomes like an Action PC or Strat. I have a feeling it really wants to create a "fantasy" experience over a purely stats one. But I'm not sure.
  12. Hmm.. Must be my browser then.
  13. The digital control pad (not the sticks) is what is used to advance or return runners. It may be as @Yankee4Life said, that something bad with the button is causing the 'right' direction to be activated. The only thing I can think is to try another controller or open it up and clean it.
  14. Ok, so only when you've reached a certain number of posts? Or are you being sarcastic? Sorry, I'm lost fellas.
  15. I don't get that option in messenger. Only in threads.
  16. I know you can just drag files or images into a thread comment but how do you do it in a private message?
    Worked perfectly. Being a player of older sports games, I've grown used to seasons not being correct and years being wrong but it is really nice to see the actual schedule AND the year 2018 listed in the game. Well done. I can't imagine how long it took you to do this. Thanks!
  17. This probably involves infinite numbers of steps but I need a rough idea of whether this is possible. I've asked about this before but I've since downloaded a bunch of Total Classics mods to study how they're built. I'm looking into making an Independent League that exists where I live. There are 7 teams. So, at first I thought I could just take the American League East and Central and just plop those teams in and then worry about uniforms later. I'm not wasting my time with faces. Maybe portraits. But then upon closer inspection, I noticed mods like the 1951 that I'm playing sometimes only puts 2 teams in a division so there can be a playoff. So questions... 1. Can I spread the 7 teams around the MLB divisions so that at the end of a season, 2 in each League go to a semi final and then the winners end up in a final? Or is that division series always going to be there? 2. I imagine there's nothing wrong with just overwriting existing MLB players in MVPEdit and dissociating play by play ids, or is it best to do it a different way? 3. A detail for when this is far far further along, but can I also "disconnect" team name audio? I'd rather hear "Home Team" and "Visiting Team" than the MLB names I built the teams on top of. Any guidance on this would be great. Knowing the answer to these questions will help me determine whether it's worth it and if I even have the time. Thanks!
  18. While I'm not as young as most video gamers today, I am completely unaware of this type of game and I'm also completely shocked because with my limited knowledge, I was convinced that OOTP was the quintessential simulation 'replay of a season' type game. And so I couldn't understand why you needed to do so much franchise managing which I really can't stand. I play simulation/action baseball games (MVP, High Heat, 2K) and only do single seasons with every single managerial function turned off. I want a mathematical reproduction of a season game by game. I would have thought that outside of OOTP, no text based sim could do that and for some reason in my head thinking of Strat and others as "dice-based", I figured it must involve very detailed stat-keeping, sure, and accurate rosters, but with rolls of the dice randomly selecting outcomes of players rather than in any way being statistically accurate. I'm doing some reading and finding that Strat-o-matic and others like it and, in fact, not OOTP are more stats-rich, if you will. Is it possible for someone to explain to me how a game like Stratomatic works, then? Just to get an idea of how a few at bats work? In the text based/dice based world, I'm much more interested in something that is what people call "season replays without progression" because that's how I play all my sports video games anyway. Thanks, guys.
  19. It's not so much that the older games have more tools as such, it's that being written in code that's easier to reverse engineer made them take less effort to get into and for modders to play around with. 2K were essentially porting over their console game and so it wasn't really made in an easy way to crack open. By the time MVP 2005 came along, getting into EA Sports games had become pretty well known about in the modding community particularly with the NHL series. Not related to the discussion or thread, but worth mentioning: the fact that there is a paid editor for the 2K series is, I'm sorry if this bothers anyone, but in my opinion just flat out arrogant. If that person really cared about the community they'd open up the editor to everyone. It's not like they're some Hollywood studio missing out on millions in sales by leaving it free. AT most you'd have a few dozen people who would bother downloading it. What good is it doing, locked on some harddrive not being used by anyone? Sorry, but I have a massive pet peeve with modders who invent editors and then charge for them. Just my opinion. And I'm part of several sports modding communities and I've never seen this. Yes, I know the argument about developing software, how hard it is, etc etc. Then don't offer it. Do it for yourself. Can you imagine if everyone around here, just with these baseball games, started charging for HHEditor and MVPEdit, and TiT? The community wouldn't exist. Period. Anyway, just how I feel.
  20. There may be hiccups along the way (number of players on rosters, uneven lineups, etc) but it should be doable if all teams are filled in.
  21. It's never occurred to you?! That surprises me. I have this dream of one day putting my top 8 Jays teams into a playoff and playing it out in MVP or something. But I've also always had this dream of playing a full 162 game season with a league filled with some of the greatest teams of all time. Would be so fun to play that out. I imagine if there's no contemporary roster, HH could probably do that in 2002 where there are so many rosters of classic teams. Somebody once told me to do that with OOTP but I just don't get the same fun from OOTP as I do from sim games you actively play out yourself like HH, MVP, etc.
