  1. Done ... and the exact problem persists.
  2. Yo Gordo, I'd have no problem filling in some of the minor league teams, at least getting the FAs in right places, but I pulled down a fresh copy of MVPEdit and I get this error msg when I open it (meant to mention this for a couple weeks) ... "Component 'mscomctl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not currently registered: a file missing or invalid." Anybody ... anything? Yes, I'm in Windows 10. No, I haven't set up my VMWare Workstation to run in XP.
  3. Hey kids, I moved in Jan. and haven't done anything with this since Dec. and I'm getting the itch ... I got ahold of a copy of VMWare Workstation and was going to try to run the game in XP through that. Has anyone given that a whirl and if so, any results?
  4. I guess I'm late to the party and better late than never ... I preface my remarks with that I come from Philadelphia, and Rose helped bring the city it's first World Series title. Nobody busted their @$$ more between the chalk lines than Charlie Hustle. AND my wife's family is from the Columbus area and are lifelong Reds fans, which makes the next paragraph less popular around the Xmas dinner table ... There is ONE rule posted in EVERY professional baseball clubhouse (I've seen it in at least 5 places), it's the one about not betting on baseball if you play baseball. Pete broke it. T
  5. It won't fix your W10 problems running MVP, but FWIW, a close friend who is an IT expert told me this ... If you are not running on a network (i.e. one PC at home) and you are running 7, stay with 7. If you were running 7 and upgraded to 10, go back to 7. If you are running 8, go to 10. And if you see Bill Gates on the street, kick him in the d!ck for letting M$ subscribe to the theory of "If it ain't broke, break it."
    Utley in a non-red uni makes me sad ... other than that, as usual, this is great work.
  6. I went to Cooperstown in '95 when Schmidt and Richie Ashburn (me and my dad's favorites as kids) went in and thoroughly loved it. Yes it was crowded as hell considering most of Philadelphia also made the trip but my uncle lived in Schenectady then and let me stay with him the night before and after induction day. I made the 90-minute drive into town at daybreak and parked behind some school and hiked a mile or so into town. Made a beeline for the Museum, the ticket is good all day, come and go as you please, so I just did a quick look around before checking out Doubleday Field and some of the

    I understand if the new format won't support it, but I hope the Shoutbox sticks around. Nobody at my office likes baseball and it offered an easy way to have a baseball conversation with like-minded people.
  8. The batting mini game (I haven't done the pitching one enough to know) has been the source of many crashes for me in just MVP 08-12-13. Never had the confidence to try them in a TC. It's hit or miss when it works. In fact the other night in the spring training portion of a season I played it with no problem and tried to replay it with the same hitter and it crashed. If I want to do batting practice I save my progress and hope for the best.
  9. These are incredible. Thanks to Kyleb and Daflyboys and whoever else contributed.

    Gotta admit though, this one right now is better than seeing the black & gray silhouette placeholder for a portrait. It's not that bad.
  11. Y4L, the last line of your initial impressions post is a real hoot: "Anyway, like last year, this game will be hot once the modders take control over it." I didn't get the game until 2008. I know it was 2008 because it was right before the playoffs and my Phillies won it all. Back in the '90s I played Front Page Baseball from Sierra. Wasn't a graphical wonder but people kept modding the rosters and you could just edit names and ratings anyway. But it wouldn't work on XP and beyond so I shrugged and moved on to Madden and such. A poker buddy had MVP '03 or so and said he'd play each day
