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"

      Ken Griffey Jr Baseball - Original '94 Version with Fixes, Names and Updates
      View File I did this a few years back and figured I would share it. It's basically the original '94 game but with rosters that are more accurate with various fixes and corrections and updates/revisions.
       
      *This also has all the players' actual real names input in already as well
       
       
      FIXES AND UPDATES INCLUDED
       
      Physical appearances have been fixed, so you will notice Glenallen Hill (CHC), Ryan Bowen (FLO), Lenny Webster (MIN), Butch Davis (TEX), Brian Williams (HOU), Jacob Brumfield (CIN) are now black (they were incorrectly white before) and Rob Deer (BOS), Kevin Brown (TEX) and Ben McDonald (BAL) are now white (all 3 were incorrectly black in the original) and many other players whose skin tones were wrong (too dark or too light). Some guys' hair colors or haircuts & facial hair were wrong in the original (Jeff Kent for instance now has his trademark blonde hair and 'stache) and have been fixed and some player physiques have also been revised/corrected as well.   
      Players that had incorrect batting or pitching sides were fixed. Example: Ozzie Guillen (CHW), Chip Hale (MIN), BJ Surhoff (MIL), Greg Myers (CAL), Dave Hansen (LAD), Mike Pagliarulo (BAL), Ernie Riles (BOS), Dave Nilsson (MIL), Scott Cooper (BOS) and Jeff Reed (SF) were all incorrectly RH hitters in the original and Darren Lewis (SF) was incorrectly a LH - all have been fixed. Quite a few other players were also corrected who previously had incorrect batting or pitching sides.  
      Some players were replaced in this version. The original had a few fake players so those were replaced (3B on the Angels, OF on the Pirates, OF on the Marlins). There were also a few players that barely played in the original, so I replaced those guys with players who had more playing time. You'll notice a few rookies from '94 that got their first cups of coffee in '93 on here now too, such as Ryan Klesko on the Braves, Jim Edmonds on the Angels and Bob Hamelin on the Royals.   
      Players' ratings were changed if they were inaccurate. A lot of player ratings in the original were inaccurate, whether they were undervalued (Edgar Martinez, Harold Baines), overvalued or just plain, flat out wrong or way off (ahem...Dean Palmer, The Big Hurt and Piazza's DEF anyone?), so those were all updated and changed. Of course Barry Bonds, who was infamously underrated in the original (a 6 rating for DEF? Really?! lol I am a huuuge Dodgers fan and even I think that was a huge diss) is now rightfully the best player in the NL and as good as Junior in the game.   
      Lineups and pitching rotations are more accurate to what was actually used from Jul-Sep '93 now.  
      Players that were, for whatever reasons, missing-in-action but should have been in the original game are now present. So Vinny Castilla (COL), Dick Schofield (TOR), Kirk McCaskill (CHW), Jeromy Burnitz (NYM), Frank Bolick (MON), Kevin Baez (NYM), Rich Rodriguez (FLO), Scott Kamieniecki (NYY), Mark Clark (CLE), Greg Briley (FLO), Frank Tanana (NYY), Cris Carpenter (TEX), Rheal Cormier (StL), Jeff Mutis (CLE), Bobby Ojeda (CLE) and Junior Felix (FLO) are all ready to play ball like they always should have been.  
       
      Enjoy! and "PLAY BALL!"

      To all TRIPLE PLAY enthusiasts!!!
       
      I've fixed the is issue of the dreaded TODD's TEAM or GHETTO CITY, or not being able to play a season from the start or Unable to create, release and players. 
       
      Look no further, I we can now all enjoy the "Your Out", the crouch scratching and the great game play. As well as 2020 rosters (effective as June 25th (https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/depth-charts.php))
       
      It takes a only 2 steps.
      - Download RetroArch (Google Play, Apple Store, or Online (https://retroarch.com/?page=platforms)
      - Load CORE ==> Sega MS/MD/CD (Gensis Plus GX)
      - Load Content ==> Find the path for the game.
      - Start the Game. It should go through the process of Initializing the memory.
       
      The downside, is that there is no expanded teams (No Arizona D-Backs, and Tampa Bay Rays). Also the jersey#'s. I haven't found where they are.
       
      Let me know if your interested.

      Triple Play Gold - 2020
      View File To all TRIPLE PLAY enthusiasts!!!
       
      I believe I've finally cracked opened the old problem of the damaged or bad file for Triple Play Gold. I've found a way for us all to take advantage of the "Your Out", the crouch scratching and the great game play. It takes a only 2 things for the magic to happen. RetroArch and the file.
       
      Im showing you all the Dodgers below with the updated roster as of June 24th, 2020. Also, with the schedule and standings with the dreaded TODD's TEAM or GHETTO CITY.
       
      This is to reach out to everyone and get a feeling if anyone is interested in the rom when completed.
