  1. If I can find them in the mess that is my hard drive, I will hook you up.
  2. For those of you that remember from about 2 years ago, this is almost EXACTLY what I was working on. I have not been around in probably about a year, so a lot of you probably don't know me, but I had a thread about this.I based my roster off of the same roster you did, and I also had it in more of a fan favorite type of system, with players playing on multiple teams. I had permission from all of the classic uniform guys of the past, roster makers, total classic team, and all of their mods. I had it probably 80% finished, but got burnt out on it, and moved to The Show on PS3 instead. I had/have photos of every player (and not just one pic. If a player is on multiple teams, I had a pic of him with THAT team). It's still saved on my external HDD, but it was pretty disorganized, and even though I had a system set up so I knew what, and where everything was.... That was 2 years ago, and last time I looked, it just looked like a mess of mods and stuff. lol I was in the process of creating audio for over 200 players that did not already have audio in the classic mods. I had all of the intro screens, and load screens made. I had current unis, and 3 or 4 (or more depending on the team, and what was available) classic unis installed for each team. I also had a classic stadium installed for every team (unless it was a team that has no classic stadium... Cubs still play in theirs, and teams like Florida, and Colorado, etc, basically have the only stadiums they have ever played in). In the case of the Phillies and A's, they both played in the same stadium (a different points), but they had slightly different configurations over the years. So, instead of using the exact stadium for both, I took the games stock version of Connie Mack (or Shibe, or whatever), and did some basic editing to make it more Athletics based, and used a downloaded version of the stadium that was more from the Phillies era. Also, like Johne states in the quote below, I used a players stats from his best season with each individual team to create his ratings, so a guy like Nolan Ryan for the Angels had better stamina, a little higher ability to strike guys out, but also had less control. By the time he played for the Rangers, he didn't pitch as many innings, had less bb/9, and even though he still had high strike out totals, I don't think his k/9 numbers were quite as good (if memory serves). In other words, even though you had the same guy as far as physical looks, his abilities were different on the field. Anyway, since I no longer play MVP, I can't say that I have tried this out, but it sounds exactly like what I have always wanted in a roster (with just a few minor differences). Mine wont ever see the light of day at this point, so I commend you on taking up this task, and actually finishing it. I'd offer you any of my work that you would want to add to yours, but I don't come around here often enough to even make an offer like that, since you may not see me here again for 6 months, and you might never get the stuff you ask for. lol If anyone even cares to, search around for my thread. I had a bunch of screen shots, and info on what I was working on. Towards the end of the thread, you could see I was getting burnt out, and didn't care to work on it as much, but it'll at least give you an idea of what I was working on. Here is a link to my old thread. If it helps anyone with any new ideas, that would be cool: http://www.mvpmods.com/index.php?showtopic=44526
  3. Kinda surprised I never posted in here. - Wrigley (only once, and that is kinda surprising since I am a Cub fan, and live fairly close to Chicago) - Old Comiskey (I have seen at least 3 games there in my really young days) - New Comiskey (I know, it isn't called that anymore, but it was when I went back the year it opened) - Riverfont stadium (I have seen a TON of games there. All Cubs-Reds games, and one full series pretty much every year from 1991 through the year they tore it down) - Cinergy Field (I know it is the same as Riverfront, but I added it because they had changed the configuration of the park around the same time they changed the name, for construction of the new park). - Great American Ballpark- I went to the 4th game ever played there (and 5th and 6th, lol)... Not including the 2 exhibition games they played Cleveland the year it opened. Went to 2 games, Astros- Reds, in it's second year of existence (along with my annual Cubs- Reds series earlier that season). The only time I have ever been there for a non-Cub game. Also the last games I have ever attended in person, at any stadium. Twice I have had tickets since then, but both times I didn't go to the game. I watched quite a few games in Southbend (Coveleski stadium) back when it first opened up, and it was still a White Sox farm team. Have not been since the late 80's/early 90's though. Would love to go to see a game in Philly, Pittsburgh, Texas, Baltimore, and maybe Florida when it opens.
  4. Been so long since I visited the site (or cared much about what was happening in baseball) that I almost forgot my login info. lol I actually heard a couple of different times (on TV, so I really have no link) that Francona was quoted as saying the Cubs were his dream job, but that Epstein (or whoever) had not contacted him. I think him "bowing out" was the Cubs way of telling him they didn't want him, and letting him make a statement like that to save face.
  5. Like redeck, I never saw them. I usually just go to the index, and see the recent posts, and like he said, they must have gotten pushed down the way. Anyway, I didn't like the bin Laden celebrations. To me, it was to reminiscent of how all of them were dancing in the streets when the twin towers fell. Granted, they were shooting guns and burning our flag, but celebrating deaths by dancing and chanting in the streets just seems horrible to me. I didn't like when I saw the video of all of them doing it back then, and I am pretty sure they didn't like seeing us do it now.
  6. Yeah, I wasn't accusing you of anything devious, just telling you my opinion. More or less, just giving you, or anyone else advice for if you run into this issue again.
  7. Well, I can in no way approve or disapprove of you creating a new account, but I can tell you both my opinion, and a suggestion or two. First, the suggestions. If it was simply forgetting your password, you could set up your computer to remember your password, or log you in on each visit. This isn't a top secret site, and I doubt there is anything here that would cause you any issue from someone else using your PC later, and having access (unless of course, you are only logging in on public PCs). Another is, there is a password reset/retrieval function (or I assume there is, as I have never had to use it here). Either you enter your email address (shouldn't be that hard to remember if it is only several months ago), or possibly answer a question that you chose (once again, I have never had to use the password retrieval, so I have no idea how it is set up, if at all). Next, my opinion. You are probably better coming straight out with it and admitting it up front (like you just did) than just creating it, and hoping no one notices.
  8. My 8 year old likes to say she likes baseball, and wants to play... But, all she really wants to do is bother me while I am watching a game, so I don't watch it (which is fine, cause we don't get to spend enough time together). And when we go out, she just like to goof around with daddy more than she actually likes to play.
  9. Awesome. I wish I had a baseball fan around here, even if it was an 8 year old girl...
  10. Both McGwire and Sosa. I doubt either make the HOF, but neither one really got caught up in all the drama. Sosa 'couldn't speak English', and McGwire didn't want to talk about the past. I guess we will see what the future holds.
  11. I just found this little blurb online: EDIT: And this: Interesting article
  12. Some one showed me a story once. They typed it up themselves, so there was no link. I have no idea if it was intended to just make a point, or if it were a true story that I had never heard anywhere before... Either way, I always thought it was interesting... I wish I remember where this was posted so I could put it word for word: The story basically is this. Babe Ruth's personal physician had from other doctors that there was a "fluid" that could be injected into a player that would make him bigger, stronger, and faster than anyone that was not taking it... The fluid was from a goat's testicles. Babe Ruth started taking injections of it. You and I both know, that if this is true, that it had probably zero affect on his abilities... Medical science has come so far since the 1920's and 30's... They actually believed it would work... Sure, since it gave him no benefits, he didn't actually cheat... The point is, he tried...
  13. Nice. I am sure this is amazing. The time it took to finish this.. Wow.. Major kudos to you for sticking it out. Unlike some people I know who start mods and don't finish them (pointing my finger at myself, lol) Great job.
  14. Glad to hear your vacation was not the least bit ruined by the stuff going on (earthquake, tsunami). Also, glad to hear you got to enjoy all the views. I am referring to the island, as well as the woman. I like zoo's, but only if you have kids young enough to be excited by it, but old enough to walk on their own, and not get tired and whiny.
  15. Y4L, if you happen to see this before you head out, be safe, and have a TON of fun. Not that you need to me to tell you that with where you are going lol.
