Exclamation OOTP 16 Patch #5, Version 16.5.23 Available!

Important: This update is only for OOTP 16 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 will be available via the Steam client soon and the Mac AppStore version is pending review at Apple, which will take some more days.


Hey guys,

We have just released the 5th update for OOTP 16, version number 16.5.23. It add support for custom lineups, fixes reported bugs and also add support for WEBP image files for 3D textures and stadium backgrounds, reducing the download size of the game substantially.

Update Info: 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. Patches always contain all the changes from previous patches / updates. Saved games are compatible between different versions.

Download link for PC:
Main server: PC Installer

Download link for Mac:
Main Server: Mac OS X Installer

Download link for Linux:

Main Server: Linux Installer

Here are the improvements / fixes compared to version 16.4.17:

- Updated roster set (need to start new game for changes to apply)
- Added support for up to 100 custom lineups per team. Save & manage lineups from the team lineups screens and apply them in the pre-game lineup selection, the 7-day lineups screen and the regular lineups screen.
- Adjusted players refusing to sign with rebuilding teams
- Adjusted some owner goal evaluation and feedback
- Introduced support for WEBP image format for ballpark background pictures and 3D texttures, reducing the download size of the game
- Attendance chart in front office page now scales to stadium capacity
- Fixed potential crash in draft if draft rounds do not get updated properly
- Ask AI in online draft list will now populate closer to the number of potential players needed
- If running without a draft or feeders, create more players to avoid running out of players
- Fixed some HOF issues if playing with multiple major leagues
- Fixed issue with increasing a contract offer being refused by Owner
- Fixed scout recommendation in draft
- Added flag to force a player from each team for All-Star game
- Fixed crash if AI handling substitutions and starting pitcher is injured
- Fixed contract negotiation loophole
- Fixed incorrect playoff rosters
- Fixed rare issue with the batter sometimes coming up twice while playing out games
- Fixed several minors bugs + text issues

Final thoughts
The next update is scheduled foor sometime in July, it'll add a couple of small new features and wrap up the OOTP 16 development.

Cheers!
Markus

I can't run this setup. I get the box asking me if I want to run it. I click "Yes" and then it disappears. I check to see if any processes are running....nothing pertaining to OOTP.

I have never had this problem before. Any thoughts? Thx.

*************************************************

EDIT - I downloaded it with Firefox (my default is Chrome)....THAT Setup.exe worked perfectly!!! Weird!

This one I'm a bit more excited about than the others (which I'm also excited about). Well done on this update!

I still haven't seen any rain shortened games yet. Do I need to enable something to get one?

Great work as usual, thank you very much.


One Little question, though : Has anything be done to make the new warmup rule a little more playable? It is not mentioned above, but Matt hinted that it might be tweaked to make it a bit more realistic ...

Yes, I did tweak it. Must have forgotten to list it in the change list above.

Just made a post in the bug report thread. It seems some ball flight animation was lost after installing this patch.

Markus - my old bug is still here.... No Game Logs being written

Markus, problem with Real Time Simulation not writing game logs still exists... Extremely Frustrating. Real Pain to have to write each one by hand by clicking on LOG after every game....

If clicking the log button brings up a game log, it means they are being written. Clicking that link will simply search in the file system for the appropriate log file. The logs are stored in your data/saved_games/Name.lg/news/html/game_logs folder, as long as the option is selected in the overall game settings. I just ran another test in real-time sim, and the logs are being generated and saved, as long as the global options for logs are selected.

*edit: sorry, I see what you mean now. That's weird. We will have another look through to see what's happening here.
*edit2: okay, I had a look, and it appears that we currently save txt versions of the game logs to the news/txt/leagues folder when you have the option selected. We'll talk it over, but I expect we should likely switch over to just save the html log by default, but there may have been a reason for that decision. For now you can at least have a look at the text version of the logs without clicking the link for each game.

Thanks Matt! I have asked for this fix since RTS was created. Aware of .txt files -but html is easier to look at. I am the one who ask for W-L be added in box scores and game logs - but if I create game logs later current, not at the time, W-L is written.

I create almanac with box scores and game logs. Need both of these to be html....

Please get this fixed - really the only thing keeping me from enjoying the game. It is just so repetitive and tiresome and time consuming right now....

I see that the file size is only about half of what it was previously, for which my less-than-lightning-speed Internet connection is grateful. Is that the effect of WEBP support, or is there some other reason?

I literally had 7 or 8 in the '15 season I just played. Maybe you just didn't have one.

Where/when will the force an all star from every team button appear? Is it on the manual All star game voting screen?

Just downloaded and installed the new patch. This bug has not been fixed.

To reveal the bug, do this:

1. When the batter's plate appearance is finished and the play-by-play text is still on the screen in the play-by-play box, click on the player's name to bring up his page.
2. Click "Return to Game." He will still be at bat.

Screenshots: (1) Mason batting twice in the game log. (2) Box score: Fitzgerald also batted twice and made the third and fourth outs. Miller credited with four outs in the inning.
