I find it strange they include a change with a ball boy however the ps3 version has no ball boy...

DL it now. Will play this evening.

A coupe of things I do not see on the patch notes that SCEA SD said would be patched…..so I hope it was.

1. HR Camera - 75% will be pull back cam from 13 and 25% behind the batter

2. "Out of Play" being patched only to flash on overthrow on pick off etc…not every single solitary foul ball.


Please tell me those two things were patched as promised…….I will check in here today to see if anyone plays and notices.

Otherwise…….happy to see a patch so quickly. Look forward to seeing how QC's were balanced…….more testing this weekend!

Someone said auto base running was now like last year and that fix wasn't listed either so I think they may have just not written some things. I love patches it's like Christmas day opening a new present!
 
# 4 Armor and Sword @ 04/23/14 07:20 AM
"Out of Play" text confirmed!

No more on foul balls.

THANK YOU!!!!

After installing the patch when I go to play an exhibition game in an NL park the lineups include the DH...Anyone else see this?

Edit: After going completely out of the show and restarting the regular line-ups are back
 
# 6 DukesofHazzard @ 04/23/14 07:31 AM
I assume it's like all the other MLB the show games where we don't have to restart a current franchise for these to take effect? Confirmation?

It's not like that for me

I don't believe that is an all inclusive list. I believe there are some tweaks to franchise budget increases as well.

I checked the bug report on MLB The Show Nation and the report: "Cannot manually steal or lead-off with Auto-baserunning" is still as in progress.
The report: "HR Celebration Camera not able to turn off" is closed.

But i also think that some fixes are not reported as fixed in the list. But thanks SCEA for the quick fixes already!

I did a quick sim and the franchise budgets didn't see too much different than pre-patch but I reserve judgement till you look at it.

Stolen bases however look to be fixed. I only saw one guy, Segura, with over 50 and the next highest around 35.

Complete games and Shutouts for pitchers are still way inflated but all the other stats look very good as before.
 
# 11 BrianU @ 04/23/14 08:32 AM
From limited testing with all of the CPU sliders jacked the HR celebration camera still showed up. I am not sure the threshold of what is considered a no doubter but even on HRs that weren't double deckers I saw 1 regular defensive view and 3 HR celebration cams.

Auto baserunning you now have manual control of stealing/leading off.

Pickoffs still happen much too often when the base runner takes a 1 extra step lead. I am not picking guys off with default no leads but that 1 extra step lead is almost a guaranteed pickoff if you just keep throwing over. There is a little risk in throwing it in the stands but more often you get the out. I still think that guys with high speed should be harder to pickoff. I know they said they were not going to touch this until next year. I am just going to use the slow throw double tap if I want to hold a runner without wanting a pickoff, and I just won't use the extra step lead on my end.

Has the getting hit by a pitch by the CPU when using pure analog hang fixed ?

Maybe, changes weren't made? Did you check to see what the percentage increases were for each team at the end of the year?

I had a couple things I hope to have changed.

On the animation of a home run that just goes foul and the batter is waiving it fair can it one time actually be a fair ball??

Also on collisions at the plate I'd like to see once where the catcher drops the ball

I wish for once they would fix these horrible ratings on this roster. how are these always so crappy?

If only the greatest roster in the history of sports video games was coming out in a few weeks. What to do, what to do?!

"Quick count balance and tuning- Tracking/accounting fix for balls/strikes and total pitch count, changes to the AI’s ball/strike frequency for smarter strategy, balance changes related to the power swing fix."

What does this mean?

Was the CPU not using "power swing" appropriately? Or does this relate to an issue I'm unaware of on the Human side?

I thought Human power swing worked fine. And on the CPU side, I actually would like to see the CPU try to drive the ball more in hitter's counts.

Does anyone know what this bug was?

While I agree, it wasn't my point. So we wait a month for great rosters to come out or start our franchise with the crap Sony creates.

Just an FYI: The "crap" Sony creates goes UNTOUCHED for the MLB players on the initial release of OSFM.

I think it's just more balancing according to the player ratings. Just a guess though. The word "fix" is confusing the way it is used in the patch note.
