Exclamation OOTP 15 update #2 (version 15.2.8) now available!

Hey guys,

we have just released the second update for OOTP 15, version number 15.2.8. It fixes plenty of reported problems and improves many areas of the game. Here is the changelist:

- Added the option to use the team text color in the interface more often (preferences dialog)
- Added the option to select the background effect when dialogs are open (preferences dialog)
- Added the option to select player nationality in the create fictional player dialog
- Improved real roster sets (need to create new game for changes to apply)
- Improved simulation speed
- Improved AI in various areas
- Fixed crashes while using 3D mode
- Fixed Facegen on Macs and improved Facegen in general (i.e. shadows under visor, new sideburns)
- Fixed problems in the player editor (projected stats etc.)
- Fixed issues with selecting regions during league creation
- Fixed issues with coaches contract negotiations
- Fixed issues with the AI not picking players in a manually scheduled free agent draft
- Fixed several other bugs & crash problems

Update Info: To apply the patch, 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. Saved games are compatible between different versions.

Important: This update is only for OOTP 15 versions which were purchased directly from us or resellers who use our version, i.e. Amazon. It is NOT compatible with Steam or the Mac OSX AppStore version! Those updates will be submitted and made available ASAP, but it will take a few days.

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

Okay. With this update OOTP 15 should be really stable. So, enjoy the game! Our focus will now shift to improving 3D, but of course we will continue to fix reported problems as well and make patches available.

Cheers!
Markus + Andreas

added the option to select the background effect when dialogs are open? Does this mean we can change the background color of the play by play box? For example, if we want to use the classic skin, but want the play by play to be black background white lettering we can?

Hey Markus, you're awesome!

Are the player development update crashes (PC) fixed?

I got monthly player dev updates, and having a crash every month is kinda tiring

No, the play-by-play box is not a dialog.

Shucks That fine though, the more I use the dark skin the more I like it. Maybe the option to change the play by play box background could be added in the future. Thanks. If I wasn't such a chicken I would try to change it myself, but I just know I would screw things up and ruin my game. Then my wife would probably have to join the forum seeking ways to get me to stop crying.

My recent crankiness aside, I do thank you guys for your diligence. What is it now, three patches in just a month? No one should expect perfection of a program this complicated "out of the box" of course, but one also usually does not expect game developers to follow up so quickly and be responsive to community complaints and requests.

Thanks Markus!

Was there a fix for the Top Prospects list being generated 20 times a sim in online leagues? That's been a really annoying bug so far for our league.

OOTP 15 update #2 (version 15.2.8) now available!

Does this fix the issue where unnecessary tie breakers are being scheduled in some cases?

Thanks for the update!

Great patch, thanks!! Also is there any chance of you adding back in the Uniform Number selector on the player page so we don't have to go into the player editor to change it? If you can make it just like it was in v14 that would be perfect.

Hmmm. I was not aware of this, it must have slipped through. Can you PM me with the details please? I'll need links to the league files too.

No, the way it is now is intentional.

Go to League Settings > Global settings > Report Settings & Set Top Prospect List to Annualy, not Dynamic.
