And the game doesn't load without internet connection. So offline licensing is not an option?!

I really wasn't planning on getting OOTP this year until around the All Star Break.

But, then, I woke up today, lol.

As expected, game runs and functions great. Really excited to dig into it.

Quick question. Any new skins in the game or any planned in the upcoming updates? Just curious, I always enjoy using the different skins to keep things fresh.

It's likely a server issue - overloaded. Keep trying or go out and get a nice piece of fish to eat then come home and try again.

OOTP my 20th Version

I had no problems with the download nor did I have any issues adding my code so I am good to go.

I set up a league to play the 1908 season and in my first game Mordicae Brown pitcher a 1 hitter over Cincy.

I have purchased ever version Marcus has created! How many of you can say that??

Download and activation worked fine for me. Busy searching out the easter eggs. Very grateful to see that Notes can now be seen from the Manager's Office page. At last a reliable reminder for who I have on rehab assignment, among other things. Thank you for that.

Ok, upon install, game locked up processing my key. Shut down the game, restarted, it then accepted my key quickly. Let's see what this baby's got!

Wait - I thought at first there was a corrupt .wav file, but then I realized when Rendon hit a home run against me in his home park it was FIREWORKS???

Oh, come on now...

(so cool)...
