Player stats/abilities for Bad News Baseball

I'm essentially done with the ROM but won't release it until Monday.  I want to fine-tune some of the defensive ratings.  Using the game's A-B-C scale, I was comparing a player's fielding percentage against the league average at that position.  If a player was similar or above the league average, I awarded a B.  If a player was considerably below average, I awarded a C.  If the player was ever a gold-glove winner at his position, I awarded an A.  The problem with this method was that there weren't enough As.  When simming a game, it wasn't out of the ordinary for a team to commit 8-10 errors a game.  So, I'm going to adjust my scale a bit.

 I see that the ROM is up. I'll try it out tonight! Just an FYI, you are free to borrow any of the changes I made for my Under The Lights mod. I feel I improved upon many of the team logos, correcting them to the official MLB ones. I like the choice to change Mets to Yankees, though that shifts the balance from 6 NL and 6 AL teams to 5/7. I've got versions of the game where I have the Rockies and the Pirates included, only because their team colors are unique (yellow and purple), which gives more variety than the usual red/blue/black which most teams have.

Good news since the last post... I solved the Divinci Code of Bad News Baseball.  I figured out how to create RH and LH batters.

 

I've been reading that folks hate the Forkball.  I was thinking of possibly removing it, but thought against it while maybe giving it only to staff aces or elite pitchers.

 

At the moment, I have 4 teams 100% complete and am looking for a release date of Friday or Monday at the latest.

 

Also, I simmed a game earlier between Chicago and New York.  Is this HR production the norm?

@Baron von Lector So how do you make batters LH or RH?

I've been using Tile Layer Pro to find the tiles for the letters of the teams on the top of the end game recap screen. ex "SF" for San Francisco and "NY" for New York. I found tiles that changed very similar letters on the outfield scoreboard but they don't seem to use the same tiles as the end game recap screen. Anyone else tried to change these?

I think I ran into this problem as well. Don't remember if I fixed it or not. I think those letters reappear elsewhere in the tiles, maybe with a different background color? I'll take a look again.

To anyone that is still interested, I figured out how to make batters left or right handed. in the byte where you put the Running Ability, we knew that the number gets divided by 2 and 1 is added to it. So if you want a "5" in running you put an 8 in the byte, it is divided by 2 to make 4 and 1 is added to make "5". HOWEVER if you want a left handed batter, the number that you input has to be odd. So if you want a "5" in running but you want them to be a lefty you put an 9 in the byte, it is divided by 2 to make 4.5 and 1 is added to make 5.5 or "5"

A and B are for "6"

C and D are for "7"

E and F are for "8"

      Here is a new-and-improved update to the All-Time Edition I did last year for the first Griffey on SNES. Differences from this version and the last are pretty distinct. I corrected a fwe things, revised some lineups and rosters as well as rating the players differently so it would make a more evenly balanced game. 
       
      For my original release I used a player's 5 best career years, regardless of the team and regardless if the seasons were not in a row. While this may be more fun I suppose since players will be a lot better, it also made the game a little less balanced. So, for this release, I decided to take a player's 7 best seasons. Also, the 7 seasons had to be consecutive (except if they missed significant time due to injury or a suspension or military service) AND they had to be seasons from which the player played on the team he is represented on in the game. This helped make things a lot more balanced as well as making it a whole lot easier for me to rate the players. 
       
      I also changed how I rated a player on their defense. I used a combination of Defensive Runs Saved, FLD%, Assists, dWAR, Caught Stealing % and Zone Ratings as well as taking Gold Gloves into account. This definitely lowered a lot of fielder ratings across the board and I think it's much more accurate. One good example of how this changed player ratings would be Jeter on the Yankees. His DEF rating is now a more realistic 7 since I now took into account his horrible range factor this time. Overall, I am a lot more happy with this version than the previous one and hopefully you are, too! I guess version 1.0 is more extreme, so you have a lot more guys rated 9 or 10 where as this one has far less players rated as highly. 
       
      I included both the regular version here as well as the '98 expansion version, which replaces 2 teams so you can play as Tampa and Arizona if you want. (See the original v1.0 thread for details on that). 
       
      Enjoy!
       
      Feel free to give any criticism or feedback and if you notice any mistakes. I had Harmon Killebrew as a Lefty in v1.0, but thanks to someone on here that pointed this error out, he is now a Righty like he should be.

      Hey Guys,
       
      Just starting a new topic that I think might spark some interest or feedback. How does a NCAA Baseball (World Series Hack) sound. Let me know if there is interest and if there is suggestions.
