I haven't turned scouting off in years (I always use 100% accurate if I need to), but it's possible that with scouting off, you won't have any scouting 'discoveries' (your scout won't find any 16 year old prospects in the Dominican Republic and Venezuela). At least, that was the reason for introducing the 100% accurate setting - so you could see the true ratings, but also do international scouting.

Have a try of both options anyway as there has to be a way of starting it as a demo and then the import option on the front page should show up

There seems to be an issue with the demo mode. This person had a similar problem, and describes exactly what I am experiencing.

On this page, lower portion, is a demo link. Is this the link you're using to download the demo version? It sounds like you haven't actually downloaded the demo.

That person, it appears, also needed to download the demosetup.exe

This game gets better every year and I love it. The one thing I noticed and It could be my slow computer...the 3D graphics have a choppy look. I also see my memory usage is around 60%. Don't know if that explains the choppiness or not...

Never mind. It was my computer and something running on it

First impressions:

Default skin is fine.
Very polished for a beta release!
No crashing just yet.
Prefer "classic" fat pawns.

Two gripes - STILL can't move placeholders on 3D screen. Still have to go to Broadcast mode for that.

Why???

And the bullpen guys still get tired if up too long.

That's the one I downloaded. The file is also named ootp17demosetup.

I get the opening splash page with links to manual, forum etc. Then another page advertizing ootp18. Then it goes into the start page, which is how I described - everything greyed out except purchasing and serial number options. So, yes, it is definitely not a demo.

Injuries

Anyone else find that there are an abnormal amount of injuries and setbacks occurring? And serious injuries at that. Have lost 3-4 MLB players and all 4 top prospects to 4+ month injuries already and its only late May.

First new post with the new game! Woohoo!

What's the deal with the Twitter? Granted I haven't explored this yet, but will this relate to newspaper and storylines?

Thanks.

Successfully imported my OOTP17 save and everything seems to be working fine so far. A couple gripes with the visual changes:
1. Ratings bar needs to be thicker.
2. Definitely not a fan of the all-caps player names, when looking at their profile pages.

I realize both of those things might just be personal preference, but IMO...ick. The functional changes seem great, though.

Yep. Just took the time to check that out myself, Honus. NOT a demo. Could you report that in the Bug Report area so we can look into quickly arranging to fix that, please?

Have only pulled off two trades, but I think the trading system is better. On normal difficulty anyways, felt much better

Really neat how you can manually change inflation from year to year.

Also very very cool how you can mass select current financial values...

Love the skin and how player images seem to fit/blend a lot better with logo's/background.

Really love that you can manually select appropriate amount for super two's which I think is a new feature...but very very cool addition as well.

Also this is very very small, but I like that you can select number of days until reveal for HOF. The skin makes the vast amount of customizable features very apparent and really adds to the game. Unsure of how many of these things are new, but this game is VERY VERY impressive so far.

I made a game on challenge mode and became manager of a rookie league team. I did fairly well missing out on the playoffs by one game. However, after that season ended I was promoted to a short season team who was still in the playoffs. I ended up losing the playoffs but challenge mode counted my time with the short season team as a full season. So, for 2017 it looks like I was skipper for two teams at the same time. This caused inflated challenge mode statistics.
