Featuring the EA Sports Hitter's Eye, MVP Baseball 2005 gives players more control of their at-bat including the power to read the pitch and the ability to move in the batter's box. A visual indicator allows hitters to pick up the pitch the moment it leaves the pitcher's hand. In addition, players can use the Pitch/Swing Analysis to review the timing and location of their swings and adjust accordingly. An all-new Owner Mode enables players to control all aspects of an organization including concession stand prices, promotional days, hiring and firing coaches as well as building their field of dreams. In Create Ballpark, players can customize their stadium by selecting a ballpark name, location, field dimensions and much more. The game features 30 Single-A minor league teams (90 minor leagues teams overall), three new mini-games, an improved Dynasty Mode and all-new unlockable legends, stadiums and uniforms.

Problems

2D Sprite Issues

For unknown reasons, 2D sprites in MVP Baseball do not display correctly, flickering, stretching, and all around acting unpredictable. The game itself is playable, but these issues make playing it very difficult. Refer issue 6752.

VP6 Videos

MVP Baseball 2005 uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing it's videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on NVIDIA graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. Prior to 4.0-593 video output was completely scrambled, refer issue 5046. Rendering improved with 4.0-593 but a variety of glitches remain, refer issue 7193. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling.
