Activating

Download went well. 9 minutes. Now hung on activation screen for 10 minutes. I imagine the site is swamped.

From the smattering of screen shots I've seen so far, it looks awesome. You guys are the best.

The only bad news...I'm still 2 hours from getting to leave for home and then have a 30-45 minute commute and then have to take my son to soccer practice. Thankfully, I'll have a few minutes at the house to get the download and install started and hopefully be ready to roll by the time I get back from dropping him off.

Thank you for the new Personality & Morale view! I am especially happy that it contains the one word description of the player's personality, i.e. Captain, FanFav, etc. This will be really helpful to address chemistry issues.

OOTP classic skin is a thing of beauty. Everything is crisp and clear.

Love the team chemistry screen. Also newly added info on player card.

It should be just like hiring a normal coach. You might have to go to your home screen (or use the manager actions menu at the top of the screen) to change your "active" team to Canada first. I also noticed a few things that needed tightening up, so hopefully it will be easier in the full release Friday as well

Looks really really good...the classic skin was so good I thought about staying with it instead of my usual dark skin.

Speaking of skins, I don't see the skin files in add ons central. Is this because we are using the beta or am I having an issue?

very lovely Markus...As usual...you outdid yourself again.
Now...start patching this game, then take a quick vacation, then get working on OOTP19!

I have to agree with others, the game looks absolutely beautiful. Not really done anything on the actual game yet, but it's so crisp and clear.

I know it's a minor change but I love how there is a split tab between player status and popularity/morale instead of having to click a link.

First thing I notice is the rearrangement of the player profile. Now, the only reason I probably don't like it right now is cause I'm not used to it, but is there any functional reason why everything was rearranged? Or was it just because?

Also, when I click on BNN player page from the player profile, I don't see any personality ratings. Is this just because I'm playing the MLB quickstart and showing personality ratings would intrude on MLBPA rules?

...hmm... Disappointed to discover that I can only import from OOTP17.

My most recent, and currently used, OOTP version is 16. Therefore, after spending $51 for OOTP18, I will have to spend another $30 for OOTP17 just to import my leagues to OOTP18.
