The Insidious Monster That Would Not Leave: The Default Player Photo

Friends, Heinsohns, Countrymen, Lend me your ears....


I'm here today to discuss an insidious infection that seemingly cannot be eradicated. I have removed that horrible, horrible, horrible, horrible, horrible,
monstrosity of the Default_FrankensteinsMonster_Default_Player_Photo_ Wontgoaway_HaHaArlie_Eatit
from every Single file in OOTP 2006 I can open. There must be a way to rid us of this terrible item. Is there a cure?


For the next game version 00TP2007, My sincere wish is for right after the loading screen....before anything else loads up...A picture of Abby Normal pops up with the question, "Would you like to use this horrible horrible default photo or a sensible one that does not make small children run in fear?"

Agree completely. And you did catch this thread as well, right Arlie?

We may indeed have closed the coffin on the corpse that would not remain one.

Edit: and for the record, if anyone chooses to adopt that image as an avatar, I will immediately advocate having them permanently banned. I will personally fabricate, decorate, and distribute Arlie armbands to unite us in our cause.

Nope...changed that one too in all three skins, brown and green, pearl, blue.
Anytime you create new players, there he is.

Still, he lurks. Waiting....Waiting. Here from a long-lost SION rookie report, is how this "player" that will not leave was created:


(After initially failing to bring the creature to life]

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Nothing.

Inga: Oh, Doctor, I'm sorry.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No. No. Be of good cheer. If science teaches us anything, it teaches us to accept our failures, as well as our successes, with quiet dignity and grace.

[starts beating up the creature]

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Son of a bitch! Bastard! I'll get you for this! What did you do to me? What did you do to me.

Inga: Stop it! Stop that! Stop it! You'll kill him!

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I don't want to live. I do not want to live.

Igor: Quiet dignity and grace

[rolls eyes]

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Oh... mama...

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Eyegor.

Igor: Froadrick.

The Default Player Photo: For as long as I can remember people have hated me. They looked at my face and my body and they ran away in horror. In my loneliness I decided that if I could not inspire love, which is my deepest hope, I would instead cause fear. I live because this poor half-crazed genius, has given me life. He alone held an image of me as something beautiful and then, when it would have been easy enough to stay out of danger, he used his own body as a guinea pig to give me a calmer brain and a somewhat more sophisticated way of expressing myself.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [to The Default Player Photo] Hello handsome. You're a good looking fellow, do you know that? People laugh at you, people hate you, but why do they hate you? Because... they are jealous. Look at that boyish face. Look at that sweet smile. Do you wanna talk about physical strength? Do you want to talk about sheer muscle? Do you want to talk about the Olympian ideal? You are a God. And listen to me, you are not evil. You... are... good.

[the Default Player Photo starts to cry, and Dr. Frederick Frankenstein hugs him]

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: This is a nice boy. This is a good boy. This is a mother's angel. And I want the world to know once and for all, and without any shame, that we love him. I'm going to teach you. I'm going to show you how to walk, how to speak, how to move, how to think. Together, you and I are going to make the greatest single contribution to science since the creation of fire.

Inga: [from outside] Dr. Fronkensteen! Are you all right!

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: MY NAME IS FRANKENSTEIN!

It is with a joyous heart that I announce the apparent death of the monster. Thanks to the customization guide of Steve Battisti, the Blue Frankenstein monster,old Fuzzy Face, is gone from my game. He is gone even in the free agent market.

If you too would like to join Default Monster Photo anonymous and permanently remove him from your baseball universe, click on the link below and follow each step in section 7.5 of the newly updated Customization Guide. Make sure to change that skin.bin file to skin.old once you have replaced your default photo.
