Talking The original Out of the Park Baseball 1999 available for free!

Hey guys,

to celebrate the 15th anniversary of OOTP, we have decided to make the original game available for free

It is a DOS based game, so you will need to run it in a DOS emulator like DOSBox (free). We’ve got it working using DOSBox just fine, but it requires some toying with the options, otherwise the game runs too slow. See DOSBox’s manual for help. Here is the download link:

Download OOTP 1999 for DOS

So, have fun, if you can get it to work

Cheers!
Markus

I would recommend putting ootp10 out for free

Right now the most recent free version is 8. It is what I tried and got me interested to buy a new version

I say 10, because it is the oldest edition with the current pitching model of pitches rather than just a stuff rating, as well as many other updates from 8.
Gives a more up-to-date look at the current game.

Just a suggestion.

I remember playing the original game, and hoping it would do well enough to continue to expand. And boy did it ever! Bought every version since pretty much.

I'm guessing 10 will be the next one that is made free. When is another matter though.

Works fine. A couple of caveats: Use cntrl-F12 to run the simulated CPU cycles up.

The install.exe program works correctly and installs the game, but doesn't exit.

I still have my CD packed away for safe keeping. All other versions (final patched) I have put away on DVD's.

Found Boxer and it looks like the game is running slow, even with the CPU at 50000 cycles...

EDIT: Can't get past the start screen...

Can anyone help me with instructions on how to run it with dosbox? I figured out how to mount it and open the directory. If I type in "install" the installer opens up but if I press anything it doesn't work.

edit: I can open the button to choose a directory to install the game in but I can't type in it.

edit 2: If I just open the game (no installing) I can use the menu but I can't type anything, so I can't make a league.

Pretty much the same here. I can open the start menu, and click on something, but the screen never loads. It stays a black screen. Also, I can run the install.exe but I can't type anything.

I'm on a Mac with DosBox.
