Havent played games in long time. Liked the Wii for fun and stuff but didnt like Wii sports baseball much. Thinking back to some of my favorite games like baseball stars my first purchase of games were mlb power pros and pro evolution soccer. I really think I going to like the success mode but how long should i get to know the game before attempting to play in success mode? Like i said i havent been gaming for years. Any other advice would be cool too as i peruse this cool forum of yours is much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Oh yea and is ok to play with the wii remote and nunchuk? Or do i need to buy another controller?

You don't need another controller, the Wiimote and nunchuck works just fine, and I don't thin kyou'll need to play the game a bunch first before trying success mode. I remade my first success character three times as I learned better and better choices to make. Part of the fun of success mode is the trial and error.

My only suggestion would be to save often, like after every single choice you make. You never know when that injury will spring up and ruin your career.

I like the remote and nunchuck the best. The others that work are Gamecube controllers and the Classic Controller.

Success Mode is like riding a bike. You might fall down a couple times, but soon you'll get the hang of it and will be churning out players like no one's business.

I've used both the Wiimote/Nunchuk combo and a wireless Gamecube controller, and I prefer the Wiimote/Nunchuk.

Success Mode is just a baseball-oriented RPG, no experience required to play it :) Like everyone else, I had my trial and error period where it took a couple of failed attempts before even getting a successful conclusion, and it was just a gradual learning process. Fortunately for you, the guys on here have done a great job at documenting the game and putting together strategy guides :)

I'm going to recommend that you start with a pitcher first. It has a simpler process and there are more guides available for it.

For example:
The Shadow Pitching Guide
Ryan Soohoo's Guide
The JC Denton Log

I've used all 3 to produce all of my pitchers. They seem to go quicker than hitters. Also, Hitters have more abilities, so that's hard.

I use the Classic Controller, the last baseball game I really played was Bases Loaded 2, so the two-hands on a controller is a must for me. Same thing with Smash Bros.

Thanks for the advice. I will start with a pitcher. Thats what i like best anyhow. Is that also the best way to add younger players that are not on rosters? Like pitching prospects Clayton Kershaw, Tim Lincecum and i didnt find Micah Owings either. I found post relating to The Shadow Pitching Guide and Ryan Soohoo's Guide but couldnt find The JC Denton Log. Thanks again.

Yup, unless you can read Japanese and assume that the codes at the Konami site translate to the American version of the game (they might not... selfish programmers!)

Or... wait 'til the middle of the season... 2k sports claims they'll have a new version out (another ~40 bucks).

Yeah, doing young "real" players can be done through Success Mode or by just editing players under "My Data" off the main game screen. For existing players I prefer to edit them rather than recreate them in Success Mode, I use Success Mode to make friends and family members and former greats/hall of famers.

The rosters are opening day 2007, which is why you don't see a lot of young guys. I did think that Owings was on there, but on the free agent page rather than on a team.

The JC Denton log was sent out in an e-mail a few months back. You can e-mail me or Odawali for it. It is very helpful, especially for beginners. Odawali started a pitcher (JC Denton) and documented every thing he did to create him. The results a bunch of pitches, abilities, 2 A's, and a 105 top speed.
