  1. Hey Dennis,

     

    I wrote the following message to "BallFour" since I didn't see you on the site for awhile, "Hi,  Would you be able to replace the artificial turf in Dennis James' 1970's Three Rivers Stadium to dirt???  I just watched Game 4 of the 71 WS the other day on You Tube and 3 Rivers had a dirt infield and artificial turf in the outfield, unless the turf was artificial in the infield but between bases was dirt instead of like Riverfront where the bases just had dirt but the rest was turf."

     

    Would you be able to make those changes to your Three Rivers Stadium?  Here are some pics of what I sent him.  Would you have time to do a KC Municipal or a Senators' RFK, or adjust your current Veterans, etc., to be authentic for 1970-71?

     

    Thanks Man!

  2. I wrote a question for you the other day about a "Run-time Error 48, Error in loading DLL).  Well, I renamed my old 1971 Season game folder and started right from scratch with a "new" 1971 season MVP 2005 game.  I'm doing the same as I mentioned when I was doing the 1976 one, and so far so good, I'm NOT having any problems with importing team members from Lahman's DB 5.3.

     

    I don't know if the problem stemmed from this or not, but I've noticed that my Norton Security program goes into different folders like for example mods or utilities I get here and pulls out files and puts them thankfully into the quaranteen section.  Do you know how I can try to prevent this from happening?  I've restored the files but I don't want it to happen at all.

     

    Thanks,

    Here are my 1971-72 St. Louis Cardinals uniforms. Once again I got the cap, helmet, & jersey emblems and logos from auction sites. In original photographs, it was very hard to tell them apart...they were so close in color. It was kinda tough to get a road template that wasn't too dark but didn't look identical in the game. To install, copy a zip file into the MVP Baseball 2005 home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install into the game. They are in the "a & b Cardinals uniform slots". Enjoy and if you have any questions, let me know! Eskie01

    Here are my 1973-74 Orioles Uniforms. The majority of the uniform is the same as the 1975-81's except it has the 1971 cap & helmet. The home was made by Rawlings and the road by Wilson. BTW, I AM doing other uniform sets other than Orioles & A's, I thought I had the 71-72 Cardinals done but while getting some other in-game pics together I noticed that the helmet color was a little too light so I'll have to fix it. I'm almost done with the 1970-71 Reds too. I plan on redoing the Senators and Red Sox after those fixes. To install, just copy a zip file into the home folder of MVP Baseball 2005, and then use Total Installer Thingy to install it into the game. They are placed in the "a & b slots". If you have any questions let me know! Eskie01

    Here is my 1979-81 Baltimore Orioles Uniform Set. For 1982-88 they had a different maker for the road uniform which included a different number font and a little different gray hue to the actual uniform cloth. From 1977-78 had a different cartoon bird. The home uniform was of course done by Rawlings with the regular block numbers and both the road and alternate jersey was done by Wilson with the Wilson Varsity number font. I just put in the 75's in-game pics because everything was the same except the cartoon bird. To install, just copy a zip file into the MVP Baseball 2005 home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install into the game. They go into the "a, b, & c" Orioles uniform slots. If you have any questions, just let me know! Eskie01

    Here's the 1970 Oakland A's uniforms. They're basically the same as the 1971 except for the cap & helmet...that's why I only have one uniform in an in-game photo...I wanted to key on the hats. I tried to go into auctions and the like to find the hat emblems...again, as I mentioned in the 71 A's description, as soon as I find an original helmet emblem that will work correctly I'll upload an update. To install, just copy a zip file to the MVP Baseball 2005 home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install it into the game. I place these and the 71 A's into the "i, j, & m slots". If anybody has a question, let me know! Eskie01

    Here is my 1971 Orioles Postseason road uniform. This original uniform was done by Spalding with a regular block style number font. They only wore this one only for 4 games in the 1971 postseason before changing again in 1972. To install, just copy the zip file to the MVP Baseball 2005 home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install into the game. If anybody has any questions, feel free to ask away! Eskie01

    Here is my 1971-74 Orioles home uniform. As I've been, I get my emblems and original buttons from auction sites...if not then Google images. This uniform originally was produced by Rawlings with a block style number font. I believe this uniform is THE LONGEST used of any of the Orioles uniforms...from 1971-88. Of course the caps and especially the cartoon bird changed constantly. To install, just copy the zip file to the MVP Baseball 2005 home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install it into the game. I use the Orioles uniform "a slot" for all the different years from 1970-83...1970 is of course the flannel home version. If you have any questions...feel free to ask me anything! Eskie01

    Here is my 1971-72 Yankees Flannel Uniforms. The original home jersey was made by Wilson during 1971-72 which had thinner block numbers than the 1970 Spalding ones. The road jersey was made by Spalding which used block numbers as Bobby Murcer's show. It also had a more slight bluish-gray hue than the 1970 uniform (Wilson) as per Steve Kline's photo (shorter hair) which also used what I call the Yankees Varsity Variant font as pictured above. The 1970 Yankees also had about the same brownish-gray color hue as the 1960's Tigers. The 1971 Thurman Munson jersey (above) had transparent plastic buttons and tried (?) to portray that in mine. I'm just NOT really educated in Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop to do the best with that but I tried to get the same look. To install, just copy a zip file into the MVP Baseball 2005 home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to put it into the game. If you have any questions, let me know! The zip files will be placed into "a & b" uniform slots. Enjoy! Eskie01
  10. Version 1.0.0

    Here is my 1970-71 Baltimore Orioles Flannel Uniforms. I got my uniform emblems and logos from auction sites from original garments. Besides 1970, the Orioles alternated the home flannel uniform with their newly received polyester one until the All-Star break, which from then on they wore their polyester home. The road flannel lasted a little longer...they wore it until the 1971 postseason when they got a new polyester one. It lasted for 4 games...1 in Oakland in the ALCS and the 3 games in Pittsburgh in the 1971 Fall Classic. They then got ANOTHER one before the 1972 season! I was talking to a guy and he said that their uniform designer must've been as fickle as some women...LOL. The home one was made by Wilson and the road by Spalding, hence the different number font. The front emblem of the home was slightly different from its polyester which was manufactured by Rawlings. To install just copy a zip file to the MVP Baseball 2005 home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install into the game. By the way, in a 1970 league they'd be in the "a & b" Orioles uniform placements. In my 1971, they'd be "c & g". Enjoy and if you have any questions please let me know! Eskie01

    Here is the 1971 Detroit Tigers Uniforms. Again, I got the emblems and original buttons from original uniforms even down to the batting helmet. I even try to get the shade of the uniform templates to match the original photos, of course making sure that there's no red or blue tinge to the photo itself because that would of course throw off the hue of the uniform. I'll get a pack of the 1968-69 Tigers up but the road uniform had a little more brown tinge in the flannel. In 1970, the Tigers got names on their jerseys so with that being said, maybe the flannel had a different gray tinge than the one before. To install, just copy the zip file into the MVP home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to put it into the game. If you have any questions, just let me know! Eskie01

    Here are my 1971 A's Uniforms...the home, road, alternate, and the home with the "Reggie Jackson 71 All-Star HR helmet", gold over green. BTW, I have to redo the in-game pics for gold over green helmets...I just can't find the in-game pics that I took when I tried it out. When I get 1 or 2, I'll add them to the list. I included photos of the jersey buttons to give an example of what I've been doing when I mentioned that I'm using original buttons. I've gotten most of those from auctions. When I get an original helmet emblem, I'll make up the sets and re-upload them. Most of the original shots were from the 1971 ALCS. To install them, copy the zips to your home mvp game folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install them into your game. Enjoy...and again, if anybody has a question, let me know...I WILL answer them for you! Eskie01

    Here is my 1975 Orioles Uniforms...home, road, & alternate. As I did for the 1971 Orioles alternate uniform, I went to auction sites and Google images for jersey and cap emblems and original buttons. Eventually I will be doing a 1976 set which I'll put the bird emblem on the home/road cap that's currently on the 1975 orange panel and vice-versa. The caps were done by different makers and just like the makers of the jerseys (esp. number fonts), they have their different "quirks". Again, Bruce Genther gave me his approval. I enjoy talking to him through email and talking about different tidbits on Orioles uniforms, etc. Again, Bruce is from Laurel, MD. To install, just place the zip file(s) into the MVP home folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install. Enjoy & if any questions let me know! Eskie01

    Here is the 1971 Orioles Alternate Uniform. It was originally made by Powers Manufacturing for the Brooks Robinson Sporting Goods Store in Baltimore, MD. Because of its immense popularity with the players and fans (sarcastic there...LOL), it was only wore a couple times, once on the road and once at home. I've met through email a Mr. Bruce Genther who owns a couple of these "beauties". Bruce is from Laurel, MD, and I believe that he mentioned to me that he had worked at Powers then. He mentioned that version #1 (Palmer #22) was issued first at the beginning of the season. The players didn't like especially that you really couldn't keep the top button open because it then opened down to almost the front emblem because it was done with fewer buttons in the front. Version #2 (McNally #19) was issued awhile later. You can see what I mean if you look at the quartet of 20-game winners and look at Cuellar on the left end. Bruce said that the color was closer to an dark orangish-red instead of a straight orange. In Bruce's words, "It's perfect!" when he saw my rendition. Well, I say, it's pretty good but probably an artist with a better imagination could do better. I've been trying to get as close as I authenically can with my newer versions of these. I'm getting good original jersey pics from auctions and I try to use original buttons, emblems, logos when I can. I'll be uploading more of my new stuff in time. I already have the 1971 A's, Orioles, Tigers, and Yankees done along with the 1974, 1975, 1979, & 1983 Orioles redone and I'm getting the originals of the different cartoon birds for 1975-83. To install just place the zip file into your main MVP folder and use Total Installer Thingy to install. It'll place everything where it's supposed to be. Enjoy the uniform and let me know if you have any questions. Eskie01
  15. Did you ever do a regular Yankee Stadium in your 70's stadiums?  I was wondering if you could do me a favor...for 1971 3 Rivers didn't have the "cookie-cutter" infield like Busch or Veterans, could you alter that detail in your 1970's and call it 1971.  Here's a pic from the 71 series in Pittsburgh.

     

    Thanks Man!
