MLB The Show 16 News Post


MLB The Show 16 Patch 1.03 is available now, check out the details below and let us know what you are seeing!
  • FLS traffic reduced and signaling fixes. This should resolve the “Challenge Failed” issue encountered when connecting to any Head to Head Online game mode.
  • Play VS CPU (in Diamond Dynasty) had some pitcher energy issues. Entering conquest mode (3 inning games), then backing out, would negatively affect all Pitchers energy when returning back to Play vs CPU in Diamond Dynasty mode. This is now fixed.
  • Entitlement pending popup fix on boot up. For new users (with entitlements) or for users who purchase on the website. When those users logged in, they were not being alerted that they had entitlements pending. This is now fixed and users will be prompted upon boot up to redeem these products.
  • Within Diamond Dynasty, the PA Announcer would often say the user's location audio as opposed to the opponent who is up to bat. This is now fixed.
  • Within Franchise mode, the title could crash when attempting to navigate the Schedule during the Offseason with a Year-to-Year save file. The game could crash trying to access pitcher stats in the offseason. We added a check to prevent updating the pitcher data during the offseason. This issue is now resolved.
  • We've removed the reward popup from screen flow to speed up services. We still show it on login and when returning from game so this should have no issues
  • The game would crash in defensive positioning quick screen during online head to head games. This is now resolved.
  • Card Rewards in DD had misnamed animations in the post-game reward screen, causing the wrong cards to disappear, which caused user to think he was getting a different card in some situations. This has been fixed.
  • Within Season/Franchise mode, all games on the schedule were said to be starting at 1 PM. This UI visual but has been fixed.
  • Within Conquest mode and Diamond Dynasty-Play vs CPU, there was a crash in the pause menu within the Advanced Pitching options.
  • The Ball Trail was stuck on at all times in RTTS modes, no matter what the option was set to. This should now be fixed.
  • Within Season/Franchise, when progressing with a Year to Year save, the game could crash during the offseason while scrolling through particular parts of the menu. This is now fixed.
  • During online games, if the batter called a timeout (or practice swung) at the same time the pitcher was attempting to pitch, the game would occasionally freeze, and neither user could progress or use their pause menu. One user would have to quit the application. This is now believed to be fixed.
  • Fix for online entry options getting reset before going into an online game. Retractable roofs would not close, night and day, weather options, and month of the year would function. This is now fixed.
  • Sounds of the Show could crash within its menus, if you had certain music files with large amounts of metadata. Rare enough but could affect a number of users. This is now fixed.
  • Please refrain from using Perks as a RTTS pitcher as it will cause the game to crash for the time being. We have a fix and it will be included in our next update.

As one of the folks who was getting challenge failed on just about every friend list attempt, I got into a friends game first try post-patch.

Rosters are separate from title updates, so it would have been far more shocking for the patch to fix the rosters rather than the other way around.

Took several attempts but finally got my Battle Royale game in...

No Dynamic difficulty fix for hitting RTTS, downloaded it and played and still stuck at Beginner, bummer

and I just saw the patch notes on the first page, double bummer.

What is this issue? I use auto base running and it plays just fine.

Seriously......they are working on another update as we speak to address franchise bugs and gameplay bugs. This was a super fast patch to address severe online issues.

Calm your bird.

I'm still getting challenge failed but hopefully the freezes in game are fixed. I can deal with challenge failed but the freezing is too much to deal with.

Really disappointing SCEA do not put patch notes on PS4 like a lot of games do when you select options on the game and PS4 and select update history, it is why it is there. Communication is key guys. What was fixed? Was the transfer bug fixed?

Edit: Just online fixes? ugh.
 
# 16 Vmascarello @ 04/16/16 04:58 PM
I see alot of people post that the game is "unplayable" for some pretty minor reasons such as autobaserunning and a few career stats being wrong.

I just wonder if the people that say its unplayable could actually be satisfied with any sports game release.

The game has its flaws and bugs for sure. But it is far from unplayable. Its breaking every record for "The Show" as far as the amount of people playing and increased popularity. So, for anyone not sure whether to buy it or not, dont believe for a second that its actually unplayable.

jb posted the patch list above. As for not putting it in the console's patch notes section...I agree.

Game unplayable because a feature that is not necessary to use is not "working"? Not following you there and it works just fine for me, sometimes I have to over rider because I disagree with the programmed logic but again not sure that justifies unplayable...

You could always try assisted/manual baserunning.

Your entitled to your opinion obviously. But if you dont like the logic with autobaserunning, why dont you just run the bases manually? Its not that diffcult.

I just dont get how that would deem the game "broken". But to each his own, I guess.
