Exclamation OOTP 14 Update, Version 14.5.28 available!

Hey guys!

We have just released the fifth update for OOTP 14, the version number is 14.5.28. This is a maintenance release, it fixes many reported bugs and improves the AI in many areas. It is 100% save-game compatible with previous versions of the game.

Changes in this update, compared to version 14.4.23:
  • Improved in-game substitution & defensive positioning AI.
  • Improved roster AI
  • Improved player evaluation AI
  • Added the option to disable player development for draft-eligible players (does not apply to players in feeder leagues)
  • Fixed issues with minor leaguers being placed on the major league 60-day DL
  • Fixed various other bugs

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 14.4, 14.3, 14.2, 14.1 and 14.0 online league files.

Download links for version 14.5.28:

Download link for PC, patch file:
PC Patch

Download link for PC, full setup:
PC Installer

Download link for Mac, full setup:

Mac OS X Installer

Download link for Linux, full setup:
Linux Installer

There are still a couple of known FaceGen (on a very small number of systems) and very rare Mac speed issues. Also, the game may still not work properly on the MS Surface RT. We are still working on these and will release another maintenance patch once these issues are fixed.

Cheers,
Markus

Does the issue where you aren't able to create a schedule for the current year for an added league still exist?

Not sure if this has anything to do with the patch, but my draft pool was revealed and all players are from the USA. I don't think I have any settings that would intentionally make this happen. This is a fictional league that I started in OOTP13.

Hi.

Not sure if this was actually supposed to be fixed in this interim release, but I still get a black screen in Full Screen mode when loading the game and when pop-ups (historical nostalgia) appear.

Although the bypass of using the "windowed" preference does work, because i'm on a 1366*768 laptop, losing that piece of screen real estate does hurt...

When full screen is selected, the next time the game is started, I get a blank black screen. The game is running, but I need to use Alt+Tab to get to it or at least get back to the start/desktop screen and click the OOTPB 14 icon in the taskbar.

Specs:
  • OOTPB 14.5.28, full screen
  • Laptop, screen resolution 1920x1080
  • Windows 8, vanilla out of the box

No sweat, since the windowed 1920x1080 is just fine. I just want to support what the guys said above.

By the way, thanks so much, OOTPD, for that recent enhancement of selectable font sizes. New laptop, as you might have surmised from the screen resolution. OOTPB looks crisp and clear . . . and tiny in the standard font size. Much better with increased font size. Very glad that enhancement came before my old laptop died and this one came along.

Looks like a hot fix is needed. Darn.

Edit: please note that "darn" is used here as an expression of honest regret.

Five thousand thanks for a non-modder? I never thought I'd see the day. Thank you for your support.

Please try to update your display drivers. We could not reproduce this issue in our tests here yet, unfortunately.

Are you all using Windows 8? Can you please tell me which graphics processor your computer has? Thank you.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite P70-A Series right out of the box, practically (which obviates the need for updating any drivers, I would think). Frankly, one of the first things I did was to install OOTPB and I don't even know my way around yet! And Windows 8 is not helping me very much.

However, I located System Information and Device Manager. The Display Adapter is Intel HD Graphics 4600.

Hope this helps.

The Mac OS X resolution bug still exists. So much for that.

Rolling back to 14.3 again.

I can also confirm that the Facegen issue I'm experiencing on Windows 7 64-bit Dell Inspiron laptop is still present - everytime I minimize the OOTP window and maximize it again, the first face that Facegen tries to generate on its own comes back as invisible. Every subsequent face is fine, and if I click on the "Same Picture" button, even if it's after a minimize/maximize, it's fine.

I've tried it with multiple leagues and I've also tried it with fictional faces in addition to fg/PhotoFit files. Same thing.

Andreas is there any kind of testing I can do on my end to help you track this thing down? I'm pretty sure it wasn't in 14.3 and was introduced in 14.4. None of the drivers on my system have changed since then.

My display adapter is listed as "Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family" for what it's worth.

Note: I just checked and I do not have the "black screen" problem on full screen mode that others are reporting, but I still have the invisible faces happen if I Alt-Tab out of OOTP's full screen mode to another application. Note that when I'm in windowed mode, if I Alt-Tab between applications, I don't have the invisible face issue - in windowed mode, it's only if I *minimize* the OOTP window that I see the problem. In full screen mode, it happens any time I Alt-Tab out of OOTP.

Thanks for posting this. I was going to ask about this if nobody posted about it by the end of the day. Disappointed to hear this since there were some changes in the previous build that I was hoping to get. Guess I won't update yet.

I've stayed there. I'm waiting for the FaceGen and graphics problems to be resolved before updating.

I'm running Mac OS X, what is the resolution bug?

I plan on updating this patch as the 60-day DL bug is a game breaker and this patch fixes that, while a simple resolution seems more cosmetic...unless there is more to it.
