OOTP 13 update (version 13.10.37) is available - improves font rendering!
 
Hey guys!

During development of OOTP 14 we have identified an issue which caused some font rendering problems in OOTP (numbers not aligning properly, for example). So we have decided to fix this issue for OOTP 13 as well and release another patch. And here it is, basically an early Christmas present :D

Changelist of this patch compared to version 13.9.32:
- Improved font rendering
- Improved add-ons dialog
- Commish email after sim -> improved error messages (sometimes it crashed when showing error message)
- Fixed a few minor bugs

Download links for version 13.10.37:

Download link for PC, patch file:
PC Patch

Download link for PC, full setup:
PC Installer

Download link for Mac, full setup:

Mac OS X Installer

Download link for Linux, full setup:
Linux Installer

UPDATE INFO:
To apply the patch, simply download the setup file and install it over your current installation. Alternatively, for PC only, there is a smaller patch file which will update your current installation properly. There is no need to uninstall or unlicense your current copy! However, you should quit the game before installing it, of course. If you have modified any default files, please make sure you backup these files and restore them after the update. Your saved games are not touched and will remain compatible with the new version. This version is also compatible to version 13.9 online league files.

Alright, enjoy the holidays! We're getting back to coding OOTP 14 now, so that we can release it in time for Opening Day 2013 :D

Cheers,
Markus + Andreas

Thanks. Is it safe to assume this will be last patch for this version?

If another significant bug pops up, I'd hope they'll still put out a patch for it.

Well, unless something major crops up in this release, then version 13.10 will be the last update for OOTP 13.

During the whole year we have added improvements, features, tweaks and bugfixes. I really feel we did a good job supporting the game throughout the year. I hope you guys agree and will support us by buying OOTP 14 once it's released in a few months. :)

Absolutely...13 is a great version, and I for one am looking forward to a lot of great new features in 14.

Scottiedog 12-11-2012 07:38 AM

OOTP has come so far as a game since the first version. It truly amazes me how great this game is.
Also, from top to bottom you have an awesome staff Markus.....thank you!

For your info: my Linux install was missing a library: libmysqlclient_r.so.15

I found a replacement but others might have same problem. Thanks for supporting Linux!

Font fix looks good! :)

OOTP 13 has been well worth the full purchase price. I really appreciate the continued support through the year. Can't wait for 14.

OOTP is a lifetime subscription to me. But OOTP13 was leaps and bounds above the other versions imo and I don't know how much better OOTP14 will be. It's going to be interesting to see what you and your team will come up with next time around.

Wow. Certainly didn't expect any more patches. Great work!

Sooooooo, any idea when we might get our first peek at 14? :)

The font boys will be happy, much easier on the eyes!

Preordering will start late January, and we will have a preliminary feature list and some screenshots on that date too :)

Took me a minute to notice the font difference, but it is a significant improvement. Thanks!

Of course we will. OOTP is an outstanding simulation, a tremendous entertainment product AND a great bargain.

Plus it has great support!

Oh, and as for the much-needed font fix:

HURRAY HURRAY HURRAY!

And thank you, Markus. You didn't have to do this - you could have used this as a new feature hook for OOTP 14 - but the fact that you did it anyway says a great deal about your quality as a person.

Sure it could be saved for 14, but I dont see how fixing a bug can be called a "new feature".

OOTP is great, no doubt about it - you get an excellent product, get several free patches over the year ... and not to forget excellent Customer's Service.

I recently moved to Windows 8 and after I had to do another complete re-install couldn't activate OOTP13 anymore - and Gary helped me out in no time ... Customer's Service like that even more separates OOTP from the rest of the pack.

Anyway, I'm already looking forward to v14 - I can't wait to find out what my crazy fellow countryman will come up with for the next version ;)
