Minor League loading crashing
Im running
macOS Mojave 10.14.4

Have played 7 games into a season playing GM mode.

Ive tried probably 30 times to advance to the next day...and then all the minor league settings etc attempt to load.

and it crashes every time.

very frustrating.

i see no one cares about problems with 19 anymore.

Hey Eagles,

When it tries to advance a day does it just crash to desktop or is it giving you an error?

If it's crashing to the desktop it could be a third party program or anti-virus that is causing the issue. Monitoring programs tend to mess up the game's need to build files to the folders on occasion. Odd that is tried to load the minors and crashes on those. If you'd like i'd love to take a look at your league. If you could upload it to our FTP so I could take a look that would be a good next step.


Just let me know and i'll see what I can do.

i appreciate you getting back to me. but im not downloading more stuff to my computer to then give you files from my computer for a game.

thanks though.

No worries, I understand that uploading isn't the easiest thing to do. Could we run a trace file instead on the game and see if it could tell us what is going on? That way you won't have to upload all of your files outside of the one trace.


Open the game and click on Settings in the main menu
Now click on the Troubleshooting tab.
Finally, click the drop-down menu that says "Don't write OOTP debug info to file".
Change it so that it will be "write OOTP debug info into file".
Click OK and then exit the game.

-To generate a Trace File

Once Trace Mode has been enabled, follow these steps to generate a trace file:

Launch OOTP. You may receive a pop-up saying that Trace Mode is enabled, and that performance may be slower than normal.
Perform whatever steps are required to cause your problem to occur. In this case, go ahead and launch the save that was crashing and play until it crashes again.
On your computer go to the folder C:\Users\YourUsername\Documents\Out of the Park Developments\OOTP Baseball 20\debug
Find the file called "ootp_trace.txt" and attach that to your response here.

To disable Trace Mode, simply reverse the steps above. It's important to disable this since the game will run slower with trace mode enabled.

again. appreciate the help. however...i cant find what youre asking for on my computer. i did the trace thing...it crashed...and i have no clue where this trace txt is.

this is just annoying as hell. certainly wont be buying 20.

i just tried again....and all the minor leagues loaded and advanced a day.


could doing the trace thing then shutting down OOTP. then restarting OOTP and loading game again had fixed things??

i doubt it. but hey whatever. at least i can continue my season. Im sure I'll run into this problem at end of season or beginning of season 2. im just glad i can play the game.

thanks again.
