I know this is a poor crude presentation. I play this great game mostly with playoff replays or World Series matches or sometimes I just play a few key game matchups from history. Sometimes I just sim a season down to the last few weeks and play key games in a tight pennant race and then go for the playoffs etc. This way I only create the team picture folders for a handful of teams.
It isn't really that much work to find and sort the pics. Frankly it's rather enjoyable as memories of certain players come to mind. It looks good on my big 22" screen. I'm replaying game 1 of my favorite WSeries with my White Sox. As you can see it's a pitching duel and the Dodgers decided to intentionally walk my hero Nellie Fox. Drat. Using Deskpin I created folders with the lineups and separate ones with just the pitchers on the teams. After each at bat I just click the appropriate arrow and the next batter pic shows up. Same deal when there is a pitcher change although I have to scroll a little extra usually. When there is a pinch hitter I just remove the # before the player being replaced and put a # before the batter coming in. Usually works ok.
It works for me. I add my looping baseball background sounds and I'm in DMB heaven. As JWood's terrific script is read my imagination is certainly helped by seeing the player pics.
I'm not computer savvy but I'm still working on a way to get the extra space from the folders removed so I can just have the player pics properly framed. It may not be the sharpest looking setup but the pics add more life and pizzaz to the game for me.
Would appreciate your thoughts and any creative ideas. Try to be kind and don't laugh too hard. I'm old and somewhat fragile. : )
Obviously if you have a big screen the pic will look better.
I love DMB and my attempt at getting player pics has really lessened my periodic tendency to want play some of the competition (Action, OOTP, PureSim) so I can have pictures and sounds.
(I got discombobulated but at least the picture is in. Also I messed up in my original screen capture. That should be Nellie's pic showing instead of Aparicio's. I got caught up in the excitement of the game and forgot to scroll. We scored on Gilliam's error on the next play!)
