Talking OOTP 15 update #4 (version 15.4.19) now available + All-Star Game Special, save 50%!

Hey guys,

the All-Star Game is around the corner, and we just started our annual special All-Star discount, so you can get the game now for just $19.99 from our website, Steam or the Mac AppStore. The offer lasts through July 16th, so hurry and tell all your friends about it See our latest newsletter for the details:
Out of the Park Baseball 15 All-Star Game Special & Update #4 Released

Also, we have just released the fourth update for OOTP 15, version number 15.4.19. It is a rather big update with plenty of improvements, fixes and updated real opening day rosters (need to start a new game for changes to apply), so we definitely recommend installing the update.

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

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.

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

Here are the improvements / fixes:
• Improved 3D ball flight engine, using realistic physics-based calculations
• Improved 3D ballpark importer / editor
• Improved memory management resulting in increased stability and speed, especially with large games
• Free agent compensation / arbitration is now more realistic. OOTP correctly assigns FA comp status to all free agent-eligible players who stayed on the team the entire year, and compensation draft picks are only given when the user/AI offered arbitration to this player.
• Draft picks with signability of "impossible" no longer state their demand. You have just one shot to convince the player with a great offer.
• Added the option to hide player nicknames (in the player personality section of the game setup)
• Improved the league events editor. When in commish mode, users can edit the dates of existing events and also create events using the internal event types. That way experienced users may fix problems with events caused by league scheduling errors.
• Improved in-game AI for several situations
• Improved in-game play-by-play commentary
• Moved the "Force Start / Position" section in the player strategy screen from the depth chart strategy to the pitching strategy for pitchers and renamed it "Force Role."
• Re-ordered the items in the team menu to match the order of tabs on the team screen
• Fixed issues with touchpads on Macs
• Fixed several bugs and rare crashes

There are a couple of know issues on some Mac OSX systems (poor 3D ballflight framerate and oversaturated facegen pictures) which we are still investigating and will fix in a future update.

Alright, I'll leave for an extended vacation next week, and once I return, work on OOTP 16 will already begin. We've got big things planned for it

Cheers!
Markus

Very, very happy about this. It was just about the only major thing that bugged me about the game... thanks Markus!

AVG keeps blocking the setup, assuming I guess there's a virus. Even if I run it as an Administrator? Should I just turn off AVG for the time being, install this, then turn it back on?

To A) - If you are playing a game using the 2014 MLB and want to take advantage of the updated rosters, then you will have to start a new league. If you don't want to take advantage of the updated rosters/changes, then you can continue with your current league.

To B) - That part of the email pertains to the new "Relative" ratings setting. With this option enabled (go to GLOBAL SETTINGS and check the box next to "All player ratings are displayed relative to"), OOTP calculates league average ratings for all players at each level: ML, AAA, AA and so on. OOTP then displays all player ratings relative to the level you select there. You can also change it from any player profile screen using the dropdown in the upper righthand corner. If you don't have this option enabled, then you don't get all those options.

Did you forget that it customarily goes on sale for half off around the All-Star break?

Awesome! Anywhere I can see specific roster changes? I know this is probably alot to ask for, but it seems I'm always starting new games when a patch comes out. Want to see if it's worth it this time around, because I always have to go through and edit awards names, playoff formats, etc.

There seems to be an issue with the Mac trackpad with this update. When you scroll down using the trackpad, it automatically scrolls back up a few steps.
