Exclamation OOTP 16 Patch #6, Version 16.6.30 Released!

Important: This update is only for OOTP 16 versions which were purchased directly from us or resellers who use our version.
It is NOT compatible with the Steam or Mac OSX AppStore version! The Steam update is now available via the Steam client and the Mac AppStore version is pending review at Apple, which will take some more days.


Hey guys,

We have just released the 6th update for OOTP 16, version number 16.6.30. It adds new features, has plenty of AI improvements and fixes reported bugs. We strongly recommend to update your copy to this version.

Info for online leagues: The file format changed in this patch, so commishes please make sure everyone of the league uses the same version.

Update Info: To apply the update, 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. Patches always contain all the changes from previous patches / updates. 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 compared to version 16.5.23:

- Added dynamically generated hint / loading text based on the currently loaded game
- Emphasized leaders for batting & pitching stats in player screen
- Added pitcher WAR to team register history
- Allow separate overall and potential scales
- If not displaying current ratings, show potential ratings on player lists instead
- Improved game substitution logic
- Improved depth chart logic
- Improved lineup logic
- Added option to use 40-man roster for playoff roster eligibility
- Implemented playoff injury rules (players may be placed on DL in playoffs and replaced, but must miss the next series)
- Removed ability to use the DL in the off-season (players must be activated)
- Added quick accounting widget to finances screen
- Generate HTML game logs by default
- Fixed custom create game crash
- Fixed bug where remove DH would not work in game
- Fixed issue where custom lineup would be placed in wrong spot in 7-day lineup
- Fixed issue where custom lineup would give an incorrect error
- Fixed 1942-1945 league total stats
- Fixed error of double counting draft offers
- Fixed park factor for batter WAR calculations
- Added Batting runs to sortable player lists (park-adjusted, need to delete "\tables" folder in OOTP custom data folder, can be found via Settings dialog -> Troubleshooting -> Open folder containing customizable data")
- Fixed last 10 calculation for rescheduled games
- In Find a Player, added ability to only include "hometown" players, as well as search by award wins
- Fixed issues with 3D ball flight
- Updated Opening Day rosters (need to start new game for changes to apply)
- Fixed several minor bugs + text issues

Final thoughts
This update wraps up the development of OOTP 16. We may release another maintenance patch later this summer, but in general we're now shifting to OOTP 17 development No rest for the wicked!

Cheers!
Markus

Patch is great! I thought it would be later in the month!
But I am sad, the in-game date while playing out games did not make it

The AI seems to struggle with "Removed ability to use the DL in the off-season (players must be activated)". I started with the offseason day 1, and all injured players were automatically removed from the D/L. In the next few weeks, I have seen a few instances of a previously-injured player being placed on the D/L retroactive to a date in the prior season, then activated again in the same or next day.

Anyone know exactly what this means? "Emphasized leaders for batting & pitching stats in player screen"

Ah I see - it was throwing me since it doesn't seem to do it for the current season, only past seasons. Very nice, Baseball-Referencey.

Actually I found an issue with the feature I was mentioning above. When I installed the patch it highlighted the leader stats correctly, in red. However, once I erased the skin.bin file in OOTP16/data/skins/ootp 16 classic (to restore my custom icons as we have been having to do each patch) I see this. If I switch to a different skin the red highlights come back, but when I re-load to this one the highlights stay an annoying black. This is true regardless of which save I load.
