Complete noob question...

How (or if) do I start a career with current MLB Rosters and teams but still have the ability to add teams and reconfigure divisions and playoffs?

I noticed in the Interface and Controls section a page has been added for Baseball Cards but the page contains no data.

This is one of the sections we haven't gotten to yet; as stated before, the manual is still a work-in-progress.

Question

This may be a noobish question, but how do you enable/disable interactive storylines?

Go to the settings button (wrench) in the middle of the toolbar (above where you see the name of your team) and under the functions tab there should be a button that says "Expand league & Expansion draft". As for the playoffs, in that same setting area, go to the options tab and there will be a place to customize playoffs. Hope this helps!

This is one of the pages we haven't gotten to yet, but I fixed the errors - it was a simple syntax mistake in the HTML.

Thanks for reporting this.

This is #1 on my wish list. I know a living manual is a great thing and is better for supporting the product...but I am one of those not uncommon people that cannot stand reading documentation on a computer screen and would love to have a manual to thumb through while playing or while on the john

No. As it stands now, it's still incomplete (the guy who was doing the creative writing (by far the bulk of the job) seems to have disappeared, and I lack the HTML/CSS knowledge to do anything but correct minor mistakes), but that's not the problem.

There are literally thousands of links and at least 150 pages (if not more!) in there, and reformatting all those to work in a pdf would be a massive job. Plus if you want bookmarks, as you would require with something this size, that's a great deal more work. Anyone who has spent time creating professional PDF's with text, graphics, and links know how difficult it can be to get it right.

Given that we're unpaid volunteers with jobs and families... I don't think it's very likely that we'll ever be able to produce one.

OOTPD would likely have to get a professional document company to do it, and then they'd have to charge for it.

In any case, you can access the in-game help by pressing F1 during the game. Sorry, but that's about all we're going to be able to do at the moment.

Disappointing, but I understand.
