Charon commented:

Here's a complete guide to downloading and installing the game, along with setting up a widescreen resolution, and proper controller settings, along with troubleshooting an error that Windows 7 users face.

First, download the game by clicking on the giant blue button under "Windows Version" at the bottom of this page.

Once you've downloaded the game, extract the archive, and mount the IMG file from the CD1 folder with any virtual drive program (DAEMON TOOLS, Alcohol 120%, PowerISO, etc.)

Install the game using either of these two serial keys:

  • 4PAJ-H32Z-MPDY-A42W-L3Q4
  • 6ZD5-NBAH-YGSF-QFAV-BTHQ

Mount the IMG file from the CD2 folder when the installer asks you to do it, and wait for the game to finish installing.

Once the game has been installed, you can play it in two ways:

  1. Mounting the IMG file in the CD2 folder each time you wish to play the game
  2. Downloading a NO-CD Fixed EXE and playing the game anytime you wish without mounting the IMG file

If you're wary of viruses from using NO-CD cracks, then feel free to use method 1, and enjoy the game! However, some users have reported that the game refuses to acknowledge the CD2 IMG file as a proper CD, so the only option left is to use the NO-CD Fixed EXE file.

To use a NO-CD file, download the NO-CD Fixed EXE from GameCopyWorld here: https://gamecopyworld.com/ (it's recommended that you use an ad-blocker while visiting this site)

Search for MVP Baseball 2005, open up the game page and scroll down to the bottom and download the HOODLUM Fixed EXE file titled "MVP Baseball 2005 v1.0 [ENGLISH] No-CD/Fixed EXE"

Copy, and paste the file into your MVP Baseball 2005 installation directory, overwriting the original .exe file, and enjoy playing the game!

WARNING: Do not install any of the five official patches for the game, as there are no NO-CD cracks for it, and the v1.0 NO-CD patch does not work with it

WARNING: If you're facing a "Please login with administrator privileges and try again" error message when you try to run the game, do the following steps to correct the problem.

  1. Open Regedit.exe (as Administrator)
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SYSTEM --> CurrentControlSet --> services --> secdrv
  3. Right-click on the folder and select "Export", save the .reg file anywhere as this will serve as a backup in case anything goes wrong
  4. Double-click on the "Start" DWORD, and change its value to 2. Restart the PC and see if it worked
  5. If the problem isn't fixed try changing the value to either 3 or 4. If either of those doesn't work, try again by changing the value type from Hexadecimal to Decimal starting again from 2 up to 4
  6. If the problem still persists, open up the Command Prompt as an Administrator, and type in the following: "sc config secdrv start= demand", then type in "sc start secdrv" then reboot the PC and see if the problem is fixed

WIDESCREEN RESOLUTION

In order to set up the game in widescreen mode, follow these steps:

  • Download any hex-editor program you prefer (for example, HxD)
  • Backup your "mvp2005.exe" file in the directory you installed your game (if you use HxD, this is done automatically, but do it manually just in case)
  • Open up your game and set the "Display Mode" under "My MVP --> My MVP Options --> Video Options" to 800x600x32, press the "Accept" button, and quit the game
  • Next, open up your "mvp2005.exe" file in your hex-editor program you've downloaded
  • Search (CTRL+F) for a hex-value of '20 03 00 00 58 02'. You will find two of them. Replace them both with the desired resolution:
1680x1050: Replace both values with '90 06 00 00 1A 04'
1920x1080: Replace both values with '80 07 00 00 38 04'
1920x1200: Replace both values with '80 07 00 00 B0 04'
2560x1440: Replace both values with '00 0A 00 00 A0 05'
3840x2160: Replace both values with '00 0F 00 00 70 08'
  • Save the changes, and run the game!

When you go to the game menu, you will find your resolution instead of '800x600'.

Keep in mind, that the game does not support proper widescreen, so everything will be stretched.

CONTROLS

By default, the game does not detect or improperly bind some buttons on modern controllers, for example, the START button is assigned to L3, the "5" pitch is not assigned at all, etc. but there is an easy way to fix this.

  • First, open your game with the controller plugged in
  • Go to "My MVP --> My MVP Options --> Controller Config.", select the button profile to your controller (e.g. "GAMEPAD (X360)") for PLAYER 1, and assign any button (no matter what function, and no matter whether in offense or defense) to whichever button you want (e.g. change SWING to Square/X)
  • Press the "SAVE" button to save your changes, and exit the game
  • Next, go to the "My Documents --> MVP Baseball 2005" folder, and open the "controller.cfg" file with whatever text editor you use (e.g. Notepad++)
  • Scroll down until you find the line starting with the name of your controller. For example:
profile= Controller_(XBOX_360_For_Windows)
device= Controller_(XBOX_360_For_Windows)
...
  • Next, copy and replace the following lines:
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_START= button 8
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_SELECT= button 7
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_CROSS= button 1
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_CIRCLE= button 2
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_SQUARE= button 3
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_TRIANGLE= button 4
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_L1= button 5
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_R1= button 6
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_L2= axis- 3
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_R2= axis+ 3
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_L3= button 9
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_R3= button 10
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_DPAD_UP= pov0 1
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_DPAD_DOWN= pov180 1
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_DPAD_LEFT= pov270 1
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_DPAD_RIGHT= pov90 1
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_L_STICK_RIGHT= axis- 1
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_L_STICK_LEFT= axis+ 1
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_L_STICK_UP= axis+ 2
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_L_STICK_DOWN= axis- 2
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_R_STICK_RIGHT= axis- 4
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_R_STICK_LEFT= axis+ 4
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_R_STICK_UP= axis+ 5
VPAD_VIRTUAL_BUTTON_R_STICK_DOWN= axis- 5
VPAD_PITCH_1= button 1
VPAD_PITCH_2= button 2
VPAD_PITCH_3= button 3
VPAD_PITCH_4= button 4
VPAD_PITCH_5= button 6
VPAD_FIELD_PICK_OFF_THROW_FIRST= button 2
VPAD_FIELD_PICK_OFF_THROW_SECOND= button 4
VPAD_FIELD_PICK_OFF_THROW_THIRD= button 3
VPAD_PITCH_OUT= button 1
VPAD_THROW_BALL= not_assigned -1
VPAD_INTENTIONAL_WALK= button 10
VPAD_INTENTIONAL_HITBATTER= button 9
VPAD_PITCH_HISTORY_OPEN= button 9
VPAD_SWING_NORMAL= button 1
VPAD_SWING_BUNT= button 10
VPAD_CHARGE_MOUND= button 4
VPAD_FIELD_THROW_FIRST= button 2
VPAD_FIELD_THROW_SECOND= button 4
VPAD_FIELD_THROW_THIRD= button 3
VPAD_FIELD_THROW_HOME= button 1
VPAD_FIELD_SWITCH= button 5
VPAD_FIELD_RELAY_THROW= axis+ 3
VPAD_FIELD_CUTOFF_THROW= axis+ 3
VPAD_FIELD_FAKE_RUNDOWN_THROW= button 7
VPAD_RUNNER_FIRST_SELECT= button 2
VPAD_RUNNER_SECOND_SELECT= button 4
VPAD_RUNNER_THIRD_SELECT= button 3
VPAD_RUNNER_RUNFIRST= pov90 1
VPAD_RUNNER_RUNSECOND= pov0 1
VPAD_RUNNER_RUNTHIRD= pov270 1
VPAD_RUNNER_RUNHOME2SCORE= pov180 1
VPAD_BASERUNNER_ADVANCEALL= button 5
VPAD_BASERUNNER_RETREATALL= button 6

(The buttons here are pretty self-explanatory. For example, Cross/A is Button 1, Circle/B is Button 2, etc.)

A few lines that you shouldn't bother to touch are the:

profile= ...
device= ...
player= ...
number_of_buttons= ...
number_of_povs= ...
number_of_axis= ...

Leave these lines to whatever default the games have set them.

If you add an additional controller (for example, you wish to play against your friends), you will have to replace the same lines in the "controller.config" file again for the second controller.

Save the changes to the file, and enjoy playing the game with properly assigned default (developer intended) settings.

If you wish to change any of the buttons, feel free to do it in "My MVP --> My MVP Options --> Controller Config." to whatever you like.

SKIPPING INTRO VIDEOS

Download this mod from MVPMods.com: https://www.mvpmods.com/files/file/8444-no-intro-movies/

Just extract all the files to your %GAME_DIR%/data/frontend/movies folder, overwriting the existing files.

Make sure to backup your original files, just in case.

MISSING PLAYERS

This is another step that's not necessary to do in order to set up the game properly, but in this game, EA SPORTS put most of the still-active replacement players (from the '94-'95 MLB strikes) in the game, with all their real statistics, but with different names and appearances (e.g. Barry Bonds is known in the game as Jon Dowd).

If you wish to replace those "fake" players with their real names and info, use this guide: https://www.ign.com/articles/2005/03/18/mvp-baseball-replacement-players-faq-596717

After you're done editing the players, save the roster, and then save your profile.

Keep in mind that each time you exit the game, you will have to manually load the roster each time you open it again by going to "Manage Rosters --> Load Roster".

If you wish to replace the default roster so that you don't have to load the roster manually all the time, you will have to use the MVPEdit from mvpmods.com here: https://www.mvpmods.com/files/file/4459-mvpedit/

This is a bit advanced step so I will not provide a guide on how to do this with MVPEdit, but it mostly boils down to:

  • Opening MVPEdit
  • Importing .dat files from the %GAME_DIR%/data/database folder, and manually editing the players using the guide above
  • Saving the changes

If you wish to do it this way, simply Google how to do it, as there are plenty of threads explaining the process.

And that's it! You've properly installed and configured the game. Enjoy!

I wish I knew how to make it work with windows 10 or 11....
I've kept my original disks all these years... was able to get it to run with Windows 7 and keep a Windows 7 computer on my desk just to play the game, but I wish I could run it on my newer windows 10 computer... ;-)

lefty32 2020-06-05 -1 point

The problem is that Windows 10 doesnt support the secdrv.sys drivers anymore, as such, the game cannot be run without a patch. I have not been able to locate a suitable patch for the game unfortunalty

I managed to mount the Image files and install them using Daemon tools, but the first menu crashes when you hit play.

JBR 2020-05-31 -1 point

I guess I was lucky and I remembered this old game in 2014. At the time it was released by www.fullypcgames.com now defunct the version I have works. I’ve owned three copies the last a sealed version sadly I let it go before the bad blitz. It’s the lone legend of baseball games and it simply the modding is awesome

Excellent game!

MVP Baseball 2005 introduced "Owner Mode". Much like the Madden series in owner mode you can set ticket prices, open new vendor stands, upgrade multiple aspects of your ball park and even build a custom park choosing among other things the walls, grass, lights, etc.
