MLB 15 The Show News Post


MLB 15 The Show patch 1.03 is available now for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, which fixes quite a few offline and online issues with the game. Check out the details below and let us know what you are seeing.
  • Offline/Online - Fixed the issue causing runners to be left on base after a home run. This would happen any time a user runner went half way and was stopped when the ball went over the fence and was a called a HR
  • Offline/Online - CPU or User would attempt to advance after a high infield fly ball was caught. Defender would use a casual throw to the next base, but it would be too slow and the runner would often be safe
  • Intentional walk exploit fixed – Calling for an intentional walk after the baserunner leads off causes the baserunner to take additional steps and getting thrown out easily.
  • Online - New Action shots for 50 players, to be seen on Player cards in Collections and Diamond Dynasty mode.
  • Online - Collections screen now save and load the last page you were on, making buying and selling cards more streamlined.

  • Offline/Online - Foul/Fair ball detection in CHI White Sox - 3rd base line
  • Online - HBP/avoid and pitcher ejection issue - One user would get a HBP reaction and ejected, the other user would not resulting in a freeze.
  • Online – When defensive shifts would occur in an online game, the OSD’s were inaccurate. Fix for Defensive Positioning drop down to reflect the current defense.
  • Online/Offline - Reduce the success rate of bunts
  • Offline - Fixed retail crash while simulating through Franchise mode. Occurrences described below:
    • Crashes when simulation far in the future
    • Crash when autosaving following very specific injury sequences

The only thing I see which will impact my franchise - manage mode - is reducing the success rate of bunts which was not a problem for me.

I'm not complaining, the game plays good. My biggest issue which might get fixed for next year's version is being forced into GM mode if I want to carry over my franchise. I'm surprised they got that wrong with carry over franchise being a big selling point early on.

Disappointing to see the boundary issues/warping foul balls at Wrigley are not mentioned in the notes.

Hopefully the bunts are actually addressed. This is their second attempt at reducing the rate of perfect bunts as I recall them saying they fixed it in the last patch.

I love the game, but I'm disappointed that they didn't address certain core things. Maybe it's impossible to change certain things due to the game being compiled already. That doesn't stop me from being disappointed about it. I believe this is the last patch for this year's game.

I don't think I need mention what I'm referring to. I think most of you read it in the other thread that's now closed.

Is the suicide squeeze issue addressed in the bunt fix? Anyone know? That one is super glaring!

Finally the card collection screens have been addressed. No more scrolling every time you back out. Thank you!

Can confirm this is not fixed yet as I just had it happen post-patch. Switching to the other team to take control of the fielder and switching back should still eliminate it though.



Game's too good to let something like this ruin it for me - so glad that workaround exists.

Nice kind of wished they addressed baserunning speed on dafault. It's just too fast. Easy to fix in single player. Online? Not so much.
 
# 11 tony9235 @ 05/13/15 01:28 PM
does this mean they fixed fixed the issue of the offline franchise freezing and deleting after a user played game then? the notes are kind of hard to understand.

Can we get a sticky and a thread re-name?

#14 is pretty vague, what exactly do you mean?
 
# 14 Benz87 @ 05/13/15 01:58 PM
Nice to see they took care of the intentional walk pick off, this got me a couple times.

I think this has to do with Pitcher View in online games. In the pitcher view, hitters were able to decipher pitch type and location before the pitch was thrown in some situations.

Yeah I know that was a thing. Really roundabout way of saying it if that's what's being addressed

Yeah, I also find some of the verbiage in their patch notes confusing. Definitely could use some smoothing over.

Agreed but I'm not going to criticize any of the wording. I'm just happy SDS has been very responsive to addressing these issues.

Again, I'm highly impressed with how the Show team quickly addressed the biggest complaints with online play and the game in general in a couple of weeks. You guys have been nothing but superhuman.

I didn't feel bunts were a problem after the first patch, but whatever. I pretty much never bunt in the first place and anything that makes it so that abusers have to work to get on base is fine with me.

Any chance the Ernie Banks patch gets added to the Cubs jerseys and behind homeplate?
