you go to the sliders,  find the error slider, move it to 50 and then play and see Tongue

operation sports are saying that if you .move the error slider to 50. in MLB 2k5 the wild pitches are gone.  I haven't tried it yet, but just thought i'd let you know

I recommend this gamepad for the pc.  It works with all of EA sports games and it feels like an xbox controller

As for whether or not on playing MLB?  I've played both versions of MVP (PC and xbox), and I also have and played MLB.  MVP is by far the superior game.  That wild pitching bug is really a huge turnoff and it affects gameplay.  MLB's animation isn't that great compared to MVP, but the graphics and immersion factor kills MVP.  I personally think MVP gives you a better experience.

Infact, I think the xbox version of MVP is the best.  PC looked prettier, but controls didn't feel right.  MVP on the xbox feels natural

one thing that dissapoints me, is that if you squad mate dies, he'll be back on the next level.  So much for contiunity.  Retarded game design.
4533  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Republic Commando anyone pick this one up? on: March 04, 2005, 04:31:52 AM
I highly recommend getting it for the PC.  There's so much action, and movement, I don't see how anyone can be comfortable with the controls and not be overwhelmed.

Great game.

I understand that, and I've always known that March is typically a slow month, but what was the excuse for the earlier repeats (granted 1 was the State of the Union).   That's what pisses me off,  they already had too many breaks.

It's the normal March-April hiatus that a lot of shows go through. Then there is the final push into the May sweeps finales.

It wouldn't be so bad, but they've had so many repeats and delays it's annoying and I'd assume harmful towards their ratings

Anyways, while I like ESPN more as far as gameplay, the Walking bug is killing it for me, and I'm now going to play MVP as my primary game.  If they can get it fixed, great, if not, I'm done with that franchise, or at least wait a few weeks on new purchases.

If you were unable to get one of the two moving balls onto where you aimed your pitch, the hitter will see where you pitched the ball and may be able to exploit it using the Slam Zone.

Thank you for the explanation.  This may play better then it sounds, but right now, it sounds like all those basketball free throw meters from past NBA games.  Push the buttons when the circle is in the middle of the crosshairs to hit the shot type deal.  That wasn't much fun at all in basketball, at least for me.  Does it just play differently in the baseball game, or am I still completely missing it?

That's exactly what it is.  It's really easy on easy mode (go figure), but it gets tough as you bump up the sliders

How fast are games in MVP vs ESPN?  I think last year a game for MVP took about 25 minutes, with ESPN taking 35 minutes or so.  That extra time really adds up.

Can you still jump into games in MVP?  How about Sega?  Anyway to sim the rest of a blowout?

ESPN is longer because of the cutscenes, but you can set an option for hurry up mode, where they take out the fluff, and just play the game.  I'm averaging about 35-45 mins a game in ESPN, and probably about 30 mins in MVP

You can jump in on both games

here are some good sliders (well i've only played 1 game with them, but they're pretty good).  I'd recommend not adjusting the Human Pitcher Fatigue to what he suggests, the pitcher gets tired too quickly.  You might want to play around with that
4548  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Baseball Wars '05 on: February 27, 2005, 11:03:42 PM
well, i finally observed teh wild pitches first hand.  I had like 5 of them in one game.  I'm thinking it only effects road games and when there's a player on 1st base.  Someone mentioned pressure might have something to do with it.  I wonder if you can turn the pressure feature off, and if that would fix it.

Also got jipped on a wild pitch.  My guy advanced to 2nd base on a wild throw, but when the pitcher was ready to throw his next pitch, the guy was back at first.

I've been playing on rookie this whole time, and now i'm upping the difficulty.  I haven't lost a game I've personally played.  Pitching is way too easy, yet hitting is just right.

In my 4 games 1 exb, and 3 GM mode, I've never seen any wild pitches.
4552  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Baseball Wars '05 on: February 27, 2005, 04:29:37 AM
Ok, like lockdown I've also played more today and last night.  MVP has actually grown on me since my first reportings.  I finally figured out how to baserun but it still a bit cumbersome compared to MLB 2k5.  

Pitching:  I like MVP's style of pitching over MLB 2k5.  It just feels better.  While both share the similarity of hot/cold zones, MVP's meter makes it better.  Yes, ESPN has a meter that you can change to, but it still doesn't feel right.  The whole interface is so much smoother in MVP

Batting: I find MVP too easy to get on base, however I'm still on rookie difficulty.  But, I'm also on rookie level in MLB 2k5, but it's much harder to get on base.  So it's still quite comparable.  Swing animations is hit and miss (pun intended) in MLB 2k5, some look really good while others look awkward.

Fielding: This is a mixed bag.  I'm having a hard time deciding which game I like better as far as fielding goes.  MVP uses meters to gauge how fast and accurate your throws are.  However, MLB 2k5 does the same, but without any visual cues.  Throws are pressure sensitive.  The harder you press the more of a "line drive" the ball flight path is.  If throw off your bad foot you have a good chance on making your target.  Once again, some of the animations look off, but it doesn't affect gameplay, just cosmetics.

I like that you can use a limited turbo in MLB 2k5, but when controlling outfielders I press A which is turbo for baserunners, and end up diving, totally missing the ball.  The manual is a bit thin (not as bad as MVP), and I'm still learning all the details in the game.  By sharing time with both games, it's easy to get the controls mixed up.

Commentating:  The MVP crew does the broadcast for the SF Giants in real life.  I love them, but they sound so repetitive in MVP.  I like MLB 2k5's a lot better.

Presentation:  No doubt, MLB 2k5 wins this category hands down.  EA totally ignored that aspect of the game, which is pretty typical.

Overall, I tend to like MLB 2k5 a bit better, their GM mode is a lot better, and instead of focusing on the stadium aspects, it's more focused on players and the season.  MVP has some cool ideas, but at the end, MLB 2k5 shines.

Quote from: "Gwar21"
So, I think I've gotten a feel for how MLB2K5 compares to last year's version.  How does MVP compare to last year's version?  I really liked MVP on the PC, and if it's just more of the same, with more features, I'll probably pick it up again.  They didn't break anything, did they?

I'm not sure what I'll do about MLB2K5.  I got the ESPN game 2 years ago and really wanted to like it...but I just couldn't figure out how to pitch effectively.  I'd get smoked after a few innings every game.  It's a problem I've never had in a baseball game before, so I don't think it was due to a lack of pitching strategy knowledge on my part.   Tongue   I'll probably end up picking it up just because it's so cheap, though, unless those aforementioned baserunning errors are really common.

It's more of the same.  It's a bit cleaner, as far as tweaks go, but it's basically the same as last year, including the bad baserunning and the choppiness when throwing across the field.  

The Espn game from two years ago was totally different from last years.   Last year's from what I hear was a huge improvement (I didn't play the game from two years ago, last year ESPN 2K4 was my first time playing the series)  This year's ESPN was redone from the ground  up.  It's not the same engine as last years (unlike MVP) they revamped everything.  From my initial game I like what I see.  However like others have mentioned, if you hit a ball right at the pitcher, there is a 99% chance that he's going to catch it.
4555  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Baseball Wars '05 on: February 26, 2005, 09:39:56 AM
wow this espn game is awesome so much better than MVP.  Looks like i'll be trading/ebaying MVP
4556  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Baseball Wars '05 on: February 24, 2005, 03:27:43 AM
i'm not too impressed.  I'm having a field day trying to baserun.  I have it on the pc, and using the Saitek P880.  I'm following the instructions and nothing is happening.
