That sounds pretty cool.

Would love to see screenshots in a bit larger resolution. Looks great though!

This is a really neat addition for my solo play, because then I can see all the other playoff races wind up while I'm mired in 4th place, 16 games below .500

This is by far my favorite new feature in a few years. I can't wait to see this in action. This will most likely be my new way of playing OOTP.

Can you explain or show what we'd see if we are managing our team's game? Is there a ticker there that's delivering this same info while we're seeing the field and the line-ups and such? If we jump away from our game to watch the end of another game do we have to quit managing our team during that time?

I love the screen and I certainly will "watch the day" this way when my team isn't playing. I'm just not sure how it will work when I'm managing my own team's game. What would happen, for example, if my team's game starts at 7:05 along with five other games. Let's say I pitch to the first batter in my game and then get up to make a sandwich. Am I a human rain delay for my team's game while the others around the league progress? Should I pause the game for any reason at that point?

Thanks for the great additions in this upcoming edition.

Looks really nice. One question: can you have it stop when your team's game starts, so that you can go into manage mode, then resume after your game?

You can enter & leave your team's game at any time, yes.

When you watch / play a game, this game becomes the pacemaker of all other games, so you can make a sandwhich and not worry about the other games progressing in the background.

The new minor league screen is a great idea, too.

Markus,

Is the time really broken up in hundredths of seconds? Based on the clock in the top left corner it seems to be. Was that on purpose?

That's not hundredths of a second, it's the time in hours, minutes, and seconds.

I love you man!

Seriously.. major major major update to the game with being able to see all that data going on while games are playing out.. WOW!

Has anyone imported a game save from ootp12 yet to see if EVERYTHING comes over? Logos, ballparks, settings, etc?

I'm taking a week off when this comes out!

I am gonna love this feature. Each day I simulate I usually look at who is pitching each day, and check out how all the top pitchers did. Well when there are 6 or 7 in one day, it gets to be a hassle remembering which box scores to check, this will be wonderful for being able to easily see all the games progress.

What happens if we finish a real-time simulation of one day and want to look at the boxes and game logs of that day's games before proceeding to the next day? Will we be able to do so, and if not, can this be added?

I would like to be able to review a day's games this way even if I do not have the game set to save boxes or logs long-term.
