Major League Baseball 2K12 in 2020: PC Modding is Undefeated

There was a thread that popped up on OS yesterday that was featuring Major League Baseball 2K12 in 2019 with updated rosters and various other mods courtesy of MVPMods. The video comes from YouTuber BSG Network. The video is months old, but it popped up just now due to the appreciation for the crowd/stadium audio and the advertisements.

Basically, the original poster felt this was a good model to try and replicate for The Show. We know we’re getting more real advertisements this year, but the crowd audio and stadium audio could use some more fluctuations than what we currently get.

Beyond that, it’s just interesting to look at this game again. It did not go out on a high note as a series — we lost it in the console transition — but the pitching system and the commentary still hold up when watching through this video.

Baseball video games are in a relatively good place in terms of competition — in that at least there is some — but it was still a bummer 2K stopped creating this game, much in the same way it was a bummer when NHL 2K was halted. Some Microsoft console owners have probably not played a baseball game since MLB 2K12 either, which is always interesting to think about.

Also, just so you’re aware, it’s a real hassle to get this game on PC these days if you’re looking to get this sort of experience. The game is no longer on Steam, so you need a physical copy in order to play the PC version. The console version is easier to hunt down, and forum user omega412930 has still been making new rosters. However, getting those mods on console is obviously not as easy.

  1. haha. I found those clips somehow and posted them. I'm not sure how modding works as far as the PC goes. Is it programming changes players can make that keeps the game updated/playing and looking better? Is anyone able to download these modifications others have made if they already own the game on PC? If this is the case and MLB The Show is released on the PC as it will be on XBOX, I'll spend whatever it takes to buy a good gaming laptop. I'd probable never stop playing The Show. lol

    I've downloaded several mods for the PC version.
    If you ever get a PC copy the first thing you would do is download and install the 2k15 mod. (for the time-one of the best mods possibly done on a pc sports title).
    then you'll find a bunch mods for the ball parks (sponsors included), players, overlay mods (FOX, ESPN, etc).
    the hardest thing is finding an updated roster that works properly. current season rosters take a while.
    Ive let my franchise unfold in its own little universe, so at this point my rosters arent accurate. last updated roster that I used in a franchise twas in maybe 2017.
    I use the most reason rosters in play now/exhibition mode. have never tried them in a franchise, but they do work.
    last thing is to dowload the patch for the game or an application beyondo this fixes the calendar/date issue. if you dont download this your game will freeze. this is due to the game trying to reach teh servers or something like that.
    Beyondo changes the date of your computer. set it to the year 2012, your computer switches date to the year 2012 and the game will launch. when done close the beyondo application and your computer switches back to the current date.
    make sure to run/launch beyondo in administrator mode also. but again install the patch found on MVP mods and you wont have to use Beyondo.

    I own both MLB 2k13 for xbox and 2k12 for the PC. I use parallels desktop to run 2k12 as I am on a mac. I've downloaded the 2k19 conversion and it really does change the experience. As they said, rosters do take a long time to come out but, I know there is one user on MVPmods working to build his roster from the base one as they have crashing in franchise I believe (much like our crashing with My Player).
    Anyway, modding is a bit difficult if you want to make your own. After reading tutorials (from NBA 2kX series as they use the same file formats) I was able to install mods from others and make my own mods without much difficulty. Its really fun and the mods have really changed the experience.
    Also the user above mentioned issues with the date, there is both a batch file and a patch that can help alleviate the difficulty of the computer date crashing the game. Just fixed that on my end this week.
    Dusted off my old laptop, installed these mods, upgraded some stadiums and rosters and I am in heaven. To any person who had anything to do with keeping this game alive a huge thank you. MVP Mods especially.
