About This File
It's finally here! This ROM is based on the 2016 Major League Baseball season.
The rosters are mostly based on the opening day rosters with a small sampling of "modder preferences" (i.e. Yu Darvish, Aroldis Chapman, etc).
As a base-ROM, I used a slightly modified version of Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball that has the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Angels in the place of the Montreal Expos and Anaheim Angels. Also, while keeping the Florida Marlins logo, in the game I replaced "Florida" with "Miami."
I used JG Games' editor to do most of the editing. However, there were some categories that, for whatever reason, the editor was limited. While the ratings vary from 1 thru 10, for batting power and fielding I was limited to 9. So, I used HxD's hex-editor to give a handful of batters a 10 rating for power, and the last two seasons' Gold Glove award winners (and Aaron Hicks) a 10 for fielding.
Also, I replaced the entire Home Run Derby roster (except for Ken Griffey, Jr.) with historic home-run heroes. So, the likes of Nick Noheart, Sammy Scrap, Can O'Corn, and others have been replaced with Barry Bonds (single season and career HR champ), Hank Aaron (former career HR champ), Babe Ruth (former single season and career HR champ), Roger Maris (former single season HR champ), and Mike Schmidt. Right now, for the sake of annual re-useability,
On this note, I believe I've covered everything. If I've overlooked anything or you notice anything glaringly incorrect, please let me know. Enjoy!
