WHATS YOUR BEST MVP 2005 TEAM???

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby mikegp » Wed Jun 15, 2005 3:43 pm

I own MVP 2005 and only have a keyboard OR a controller with one D-pad thingy and one joystick. Is there anyway I can slide, dive or lead off without buying a new controller?

ESPN is trash, especially their MLB game. It's going to be sickening having to play that each year.

I hope EA continues to update the MVP rosters, even into next season. That would be sweet.


Agreed, but if you play in Fantasy mode, you'll be golden for a while. ;-D

This is the year wrote:One suggestion I have, if you haven't done it already, is turn off the vibration in addition to the pitch cursor. It makes it a lot harder to locate your pitches, and will take some getting used to.

Hehe, I've already taken care of that pretty much. I got pissed when I was being absolutely dominated by Eric Milton and threw my controller down and now it just barely vibrates. :-o Luckily I got the extended warranty thing at Best Buy so hopefully I'll be able to get it replaced. :-D

This is the year wrote:Also, if you have "meter difficulty" at -50, wouldn't that make it much easier? I could be very wrong on this, because I haven't messed with the sliders very much.

That's what I thought as well, but a lot of the slider settings seem to be counter-intuitive. I found this list of slider settings and I had a couple others backwards too. :*)

This is the year wrote:I like your idea of keeping it as a simulation, but I figured that I wouldn't be able to do that due to all of the circumstances you mentioned.

It's definitely tedious at times, but I think it's worth it if you have the time/patience. I really only keep up with rosters, not starting lineups and stuff. I turn fair trades off then move the players around at the major league level as best I can and let the CPU manage them after that.

Right, except there is a pretty big community of modders and such -- at least for PC -- that keep the rosters, stadiums, and patches up to date. The biggest thing I'm worried won't continue after this final cycle is the online play. :-/

I'm not really sure. :-? Unless you're really strapped for cash a gamepad is the way to go. I got a pretty good one for about $30, but there are some that are a lot cheaper as I've seen some in the $20-$25 range. ;-D

Yeah I started a fantasy draft dynasty. Its really addicting when you are trying to be build a farm system, win on all levels, and keep the budget in line. I got my roster update from http://www.codejunkies.com for my mod(ified) ;-) xbox.

I've never tried it in MVP before. I guess I figure that's what my fantasy leagues are for. :-D As for the minor leagues, I really couldn't care less hehe. I treat them pretty much like most real teams do, as a place to develop players and if they happen to win, so be it. O:-)
