Had a few crashes when accessing player pages (2013 MLB)...also, the mod (I know this isn't the developers responsibility but maybe some ideas) does not seem to have photos for very well known players like Rafael Betancourt

Fast download, great game so far.. I love everything about it.... The only thing that sucks(which is no fault of the OOTP team) is that people who have semi lower screen resolutions are kind of out of luck.. Seems like a decent amount of things are cut off... Like the edit ballpark/owner thing.the hot/who's not thing under the bullpen,etc. I just wish there was a way, those who have smaller screen resolutions can still get to everything that those who have bigger resolutions can see.

Love the new wallpaper with the scorekeeper sheets n box scores in the background.

Markus - RTS - This is A W E S O M E

B U T

PLEASE disable the factoid pop-ups. These are very irritating. Even on factor 5 they go by so fast you can't read them, not that I want to anyway as they just block the screen I'm watching, even if for a second, it's a pita.

Other than that, I love the new webcast screen. You outdid yourself on this, it's just super.

Going to be using it all wknd, will give a better feedback next week once I've run it through its paces for a few days.


Cheers

Well, we need to make the cut somewhere, and the game is optimized for a minimal resolution of 1024*768.

So far so good. Love the webcast view while playing out games. Is the spring training field / location customizable? It isn't stored in the team options, and I haven't found a spot where you can change it.

Congratulations on another OOTP release day. May there be 100 more.

I understand.. it just frustrates me(not your guys fault though) it's still a great game, plus there's a who's hot/who's not thing in the statistics menu so it's all good.



Does anyone know of a GOOD price I can get another monitor for? Been looking all over, but I hate buying new stuff because it's hard to trust if it's gonna be worth it.

So yeah, those crashes would happen on the team summary page when I clicked pitchers, following restarting the program and entering a save game, you may want to look into that.

Webcast looks awesome.

These are just my initial impressions after downloading and going through a couple quick seasons with a test league.

Overall the download process was great, and everything looks wonderful. I really like the new loading screen, and the updated look and feel. Things seem to go faster jumping around from screen to screen.

The new playoff screen looks great. Facegen really looks nice this version as well. I like the trade log as well, and the notes to tell they were the #x prospect was a nice touch. Seeing WAR on the player's profile and in the exports is really nice!

One thing that still drives me nuts is when doing a player search or similar screens when you switch between season and career the WAR doesn't change. It would be real nice to be able to see the career WAR, which I believe is the only stat that doesn't change.

It would also be nice in batting and pitching reports to see WAR, and in the batting and pitching registers.

Overall it looks great though, well done!

I got a 24" from NewEgg (IIRC) last year for about $200, more-or-less specifically so OOTP would look better. Absoutely worth it.

I believe that is just the game generating the new pictures, once they have gone around once, you should see that minimally

Please post in our bug reports thread what kind of league it is and what pitchers exactly you clicked on: http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/boar...rt-thread.html

What? The man asked for impressions.

Wow, tough room. I guess I will go back to prop comedy.

My first impression was that the whole presentation layer looks shiny and really inviting - couldnt wait to get it fired up and get stuck in.

I think with the new webcast screen I've found my favourite way to play out games
