Smile OOTP 17 Update #11, Version 17.12.75 Available!

Important: This update is only for OOTP 17 versions which were purchased directly from us or resellers who use our version.
It is NOT compatible with the Steam or Mac OSX AppStore version! The Steam update is available via the Steam client and the Mac AppStore version is pending review at Apple, which will take some more days.


Hey folks!

Because we love our product so much, we have continued to fix reported issues and make improvements. A new maintenance patch, version 17.12.75, has just been released.

Here is the complete changelist for this version:
- Fixed case where scouting reports would show negative reviews for players with ratings above the max
- Fixed case where teams would fail to sign any international FA despite having budget room available
- Fixed issues where international FA or draftees would only show as RP
- Fixed issues where international FA demands would change based on their selected position
- Fixed a problem with retired pitchers showing up as 1B
- Fixed several issues with historical minor leagues
- Fixed database errors with historical transactions and real lineups
- Fixed issue where clicking on association tab could cause a crash if there are faulty team IDs.

Update Info for our webstore customers: To apply the update, simply download the setup file and install it over your current installation. There is no need to uninstall or unlicense your current copy! However, you should quit the game before installing it, of course. updates always contain all the changes from previous updates. Saved games are compatible between different versions.

Thank you very much for your support!

I was holding out hope that the baseball cards not being generated for players with foreign accents for MacOS users would be resolved. I know you said that this is not an OOTP issue but a MS library issue. Oh well...

Thanks Markus! Though what about the issue with certain RP's being used as starters and the human manager not being able to force the position as CL? I go in to the other teams page (I play as commissioner) then switch back after im done but the AI just changes it back

Yup, I have the same false sense of hope with every patch that comes out. Have to say it took a good deal of joy out of the game for me.

Why not just go into the player edit page and remove the accent mark?

There's nothing OOTPD can do. You can hold out hope that Tim Cook and company can fix a problem they're probably not even aware of, or go for the easy proactive fix.

I don't know.

The patch certainly shouldn't have done anything like that.

Can you first try reinstalling it?

If that doesn't help, please open a support ticket and I'll try to help further.

Maybe you accidently installed the latest patch in a different folder ?

Just out of curiosity what does this mean? I've read it three times and I'm still clueless...

I find it odd that software in 2016 is still not using Unicode for text encoding. It's not just accents. Given that we have international leagues built into the game, why can't names be in Japanese characters, Hangul, etc?

That's a good question. Is there anything in OOTP that would "break" if the database suddenly moves over to UTF-8?
