Exclamation OOTP 14 Update, Version 14.4.23 officially available!

Hey guys!

We have just released the fourth update for OOTP 14, the version number is 14.4.23. It fixes many reported bugs and adds some useful new features and improvements. It is 100% save-game compatible with previous versions of the game.

Changes in this update, compared to version 14.3.12:
  • Added the option to display the last 5 games log in the player profile screen stats section
  • In historical leagues, the real stats of the current year are displayed additionally in the player profile screen stats section
  • The game log in the player screen now has the order reversed, with most recent games at the top
  • Added "Release all coaches / scouts" and "Fill teams with fictional coaches / scouts" function to league setup
  • Added contract option type to player salary team report
  • Added team records to box score header
  • Added "Hit by Pitch" to box scores in the batting summary
  • Improved 40 man roster AI
  • More aggressive free agent signing AI
  • Improved play-by-play commentary
  • Improved simulation speed
  • Players on irrevocable waivers may no longer be traded (does not apply to online leagues)
  • Users can now turn multiple retired players into coaches via the mass-select function
  • Online league file upload via "automator" will no longer save database two times
  • If online league file routine cannot create target folder for league file it will use the import_export folder
  • Fixed issues with the online league quickstart feature

Changes since the public beta version 14.4.18:
  • The "Player of the Week" award is now based on stats complied from Monday through Sunday instead of Sunday through Saturday. Also, pitchers have a higher chance of winning it now.
  • Users can now set the scouting & player development budgets during the offseason as well, which allows more financial flexibility during the free agent signing process.
  • Multiple other bug fixes & AI improvements

UPDATE INFO:

To apply the patch, simply download the setup file, run it and and install the game over your current installation. Alternatively, for PC only, there is a smaller patch file which will update your current installation properly. There is no need to uninstall or unlicense your current copy! However, you should quit the game before installing it, of course. If you have modified any default files, please make sure you backup these files and restore them after the update. Your saved games are not touched and will remain compatible with the new version. This version is also compatible to version 14.3, 14.2, 14.1 and 14.0 online league files.

Download links for version 14.4.23:

Download link for PC, patch file:

Download link for PC, full setup:
PC Installer

Download link for Mac, full setup:

Okay, unless something major happens, this will be the last "big" OOTP 14 update. We are now shifting to the development of OOTP 15 as well as a secret project

Have a great weekend!
Markus

Thanks Markus for the unending great support you provide.

Did the bug for the Almanac Boxscores & gamelogs get fixed?

We tested this extensively and the feature worked properly in our test leagues, we were not able to find any issues with it.

Any chance the problem with uniforms reverting back to the modern versions when you switch between a quickstart and an historical league has been fixed?

A number of us were having problems using the Almanac with the default settings - even though we had box scores and game logs checked, they weren't being generated. The simple work around was to click on the "Load Profile" button for the "Complete Almanac" to turn *everything* on, and then edit the almanac profile to turn off anything you don't want. Then the box scores and game logs come through.

There's a thread floating around about it somewhere... I'll come back and link it after I find it.

I thought that was it.

This has been an issue with a few versions of OOTP now. The workaround you described is what I've been doing myself.
You have to select complete Almanac which includes loading box scores & logs, then deselect those items that you do not wish to generate with your Almanac.

Users can now set the scouting & player development budgets during the offseason as well, which allows more financial flexibility during the free agent signing process.

Love it!

Player uniforms are not updating. I've tried force updating of player pictures, all of the appropriate boxes are checked as far as updating players. It's worked perfectly until this past off season and now they won't update.

This one bugs me, because presumably it means that player on the 60-day DL could accrue Major League service time. It's my understanding that when a player is on the 60-day DL, they don't count toward your 40-man roster obviously, but they DO still accrue Major League service time.

I miss the days when the setting to let minor league managers handle lineups/depth charts/pitching staffs didn't include handling of injuries. I preferred doing that myself to avoid this very situation. Doubt there's too many patches left for OOTP14, but I'd like to see this one get fixed.

Basically, if the player is in the minors (and NOT on rehab assignment), and he gets hurt, put him on the minor league DL - regardless of injury type or length. If he's on rehab, instead of DLing him in the minors, just cancel the rehab assignment and send him back to the ML DL, where he can stay until he's healthy again.

Please Markus let these get in for OOTP15!

I get so nervous when someone reports facegen stuff not working. You hear about it happening to someone every once in awhile, and it seems like a fluke, and you hope it doesn't happen to you, but you know one of these days it might. The facegen/logos/unis is a big part of the immersion for me, so if it breaks, I get very sad.

I'll install the patch tonight to see if I'm having problems and report back.
