MLB The Show 20: Update 1.06 Now Live, Only Involves Bug Fixes

MLB The Show 20 Update 1.06 went live this morning, and it’s an update that is strictly for (minor) bug fixes and the like. It involves no gameplay tuning or any major bug fixes — at least not the ones folks seem to be clamoring the most about (franchise-related items or fielding-related items). It’s unclear when the next “major” patch will be released, but the development team does make note here that they are still monitoring things closely for future gameplay updates.

In the list of changes, the biggest one relates to deep balls no longer being hit through walls in rare instances. I originally highlighted this in my first gameplay-focused bugs report, so hopefully this fix will stop that issue from happening anymore.

The other biggest fix has to do with an expanded tag radius during rundowns. Rundowns have not been too sloppy this year, but I have certainly seen whiffed tags on rundowns in CPU games here and there. They are generally very easy tags that are missed when it happens, so hopefully this tweak will alleviate that issue.

A couple small bugs were introduced in Update 1.05, including a blue circle around all fielders even when you want a clean UI, and pitch speed/type on the scoreboard no longer being in the corner of the screen when the pitch info is set to off. Those two items are not specifically called out in this update, but perhaps they do fit under the “minor UI corrections” bullet point. I’m sure the community will let me know if those items are actually fixed or not soon enough. Regardless, the development team is well aware of those two issues being introduced in the earlier update.

All in all, this is not a major update or anything, but there are still some gameplay fixes on here that are important. They’re just not the easiest bugs to reproduce so you may have never known they were a thing until they happened to you at the worst time possible.

MLB The Show 20 Update 1.06 – Full Patch Notes

In-Game:
  • Fixed a rare occurrence where deep hit balls could bounce under and through the OF wall, resulting in a ground rule double. We also fixed one occurrence where the ball could pass through the HR wall on the fly.
  • Fixed a specific situation where the baserunner would go into base standing, when he needed to be urgently sliding.
  • Slightly expanded the radius that a defender can successfully tag out a baserunner when they collide in the base path during rundowns or instances when the defender is going into a throw animation, while the baserunner is passing through him.
  • Increased the ability of the pitcher to successfully tag out runners at home plate, when the pitcher has to cover home plate following a wild pitch or passed ball.
  • Lead Runner Window will no longer display if the fielder or runner settings are set to “Auto”.
UI:
  • Added the “R2 to Steal” prompt to RTTS Classic Baserunning.
  • Fixed an issue where a few Legends had the incorrect head, after loading up a year-to-year save from MLB The Show 19.
  • Fixed an issue in Options Explorer, where the pitch result/feedback OSD was not displaying (showing whether it was good, early, or late timing).
  • Various other minor UI corrections.
Misc:
  • Fixed a crash caused by entering an Exhibition game, immediately after completing a Team Affinity moment.
  • Added pitchers/two-way players to the bench in the Sim Manager. They were previously unavailable as subs off the bench.
  • Fixed an issue that was making the crowd drop out completely for small amounts of time.
  • Various crash fixes.

  1. I hope they fixed the blue circle when auto fielding and the pitch speed / type on the scoreboard in the corner of the screen when the pitch info is set to off, but they said "other minor ui fixes" and neither of those are what I would consider minor.
    What the hell has the patch done to the base running picture in top right corner???? It’s gone!! Now I can’t see where my runners are at what the hell?? Now I don’t even know to tag or not because I can’t see my runner where he’s at
    Why the hell was this removed ?? This is a joke!! Worst choice ever sds!!

    Patch note: Lead Runner Window will no longer display if the fielder or runner settings are set to "Auto".
    Problem is, they forgot one "IF" statement: If only 1 runner on base at first, do not apply.

    To SDS,
    A new bug has been introduced. We can’t see the running interface anymore when playing in the field!!!
    How are we going to see with multiple players or even a single player which base to attempt a throw?
    With all due respect....in spite of the world situation.
    You can’t release updates that are breaking the game more than fixing them.
    It is a mess.

    Cant belive this, runner camera is gone when fielding, on ofense and defense...cant see anything now..
    And the blue circle still on when auto fielding, damn... lol
    I can cancel the patch download if it hasn't fully downloaded yet, correct? I'll just stick with 1.05 until these issues get fixed.

    Yep wish I did that.
    Do not DL this thing if you have not already.
    It is a total mess.
    I have been now regulated to online DD until all this is fixed.
    If you play clean screen/auto field/manual or auto throw?
    Game is simply unplayable now. Literally unplayable.
    I have never in my history of playing this game have said such a thing.
    All we can do is wait for the fixes to come out.
    I am blown away right now.

    Is playing manual fielding and base running for the time being an option? I know it's not your preferred play style but it's better than online DD surely?
    We have a very similar approach to game style but I do manual field and run, so I know this isn't an issue for me with this patch but I'd urge you to try it and see if you can get on with it for the time being.
    Maybe I just don't like online or DD but I'd hate to be stuck playing that instead. Good luck:waytogo:

    That is what I am going to have to do.....but I better not have to do this permanently or the game will be dead to me this cycle.
    I am very sure it will be fixed. But the frustration is boiling over for me. I am miffed at this stuff.

    fingers crossed mate. Would be nice to know their rationale behind removing it
    I use Auto Baserunning as I like the Sim aspect of it but I still want to see my icons on the bases. You are literally playing blind with this display off

    I feel very much like armor.....the game right now is my only way to decompress from life.....i hate the new patch its broken the game for me and I am sure none of the higher ups are even seeing the complaints to fix it quickly....I will go to manual and see how I do but I like the clean feel of auto
    Without doubt this has been the most disappointing Show release I can remember.
    From being suckered in to paying the extra to get the game on a Friday because of the lure of "full minors out of the box", only to discover this was nothing of the sort, to the white dot pitch call-out, the blue fielding circle, the pitch speed and type disappearing from the score bug, and now this.
    And these are only the things that affect me, there are a myriad of other complaints about other issues affecting people's enjoyment and even ability to play the game.
    As we all know these are stressful times, which is why we need the escapism of The Show even more so than normal, to fill the gigantic void of no sports, and to be honest, I still have to do my job to the best of my ability from home, as do millions of others, nurses and other key workers are having to do their jobs under great adversity, which actually to me at least makes SDS's appallingly shoddy performance even more pathetic in the light of key workers having to make sacrifices and so on.
    Just bitterly disappointed by the whole thing.
    Between Coronavirus and April Fools - man, we're just screwed. Someone pull the plug on 2020 for 30 seconds and then see if we can reset. I agree with a previous sentiment - between the false adveritising of Full Minors and these game updates...what a fustercluck. Catering to the wrong voices, they are...
    LastActionHero
    So is the runner window only not displaying with auto fielding...?

    Correct. You are playing blind.
    So it is unplayable for auto fielders....who make their own throws. And even auto fielders who auto throw.....why are these design decisions being made on the fly when none of us have ever requested it.....ever.
    It is mind boggling at this point. three significant bugs in total introduced on 1.05 and now 1.06 for those of us who have played this game the exact same way for 15 years plus.
    Fixed an issue that was making the crowd drop out completely for small amounts of time

    This was a minor annoyance compared to other things, but I'm glad it's fixed.
    The blue circle staying on with Auto Fielding in 1.05, I believe, is a bug.
    This below is a design decision.
    Lead Runner Window will no longer display if the fielder or runner settings are set to "Auto".
    They should provide an explanation of their reasoning here.

    I'll need them to all yell "STEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" now...so I'm glad I can hear them again.
    Sorry for the guys who have DL this patch. I am sure they will fix it (hopefully)
    I play MoM so am a little confused so asking before i download. Obviously my fielding is Auto in this mode but are you saying I cant see the runner on 1B leadoff in the corner? This is big even for Mom mode on whether to know what kind of lead he has . Or are you guys taling about the diamond shaped runner dots that shows where all baserunners are? Thanks
    Very glad I’m still on 1.04, no plans on updating.
    Amazing testing process they have lol
    Still annoyed no hr camera option. It’s truly the dumbest thing ever to not give us the choice..absolutely no reason at all not to other than a dev most likely being stubborn towards the idea
    What’s the rationale behind those that use auto-fielding and auto-baserunning?  Everyone I know that plays uses manual, so just curious why others are using auto and if there is any advantage to it.

    Now....explain how ANY of the above issues (and they are all clearly 'issues') have anything to do with 'catering to the wrong voices'....
    The patch note stated the following: "Lead Runner Window will no longer display if the fielder or runner settings are set to "Auto"."
    OK...if catering to "the wrong voices" means the H2H guys...sorry, not buying that at all; they do everything they can to have 'control' and complain when they don't. I mean, for crying out loud....they still use ball markers when they pitch!!! This is NOT something that they would demand....
    Was this a crap-tastic execution? Absolutely. But I'm not buying for an instant this was done to "cater" to an audience.

    you're a twitter guy - read the comments in their feeds. you know exactly what I mean. "FIX HITTING!!!!" "FIX PITCHING!!!" "I CAN'T HIT!!!"
    THIS STUFF - the online guys who cheese and complain and whine - it's THOSE VOICES they're listening to. the rest of sim guys here who love a challenging game of baseball where not every hit is an HR and I don't strike 20 guys out a game.

    It is utter Horse **** How the hell can we play auto fielding and manual throwing anymore? Are you telling me they said ahhhh screw you guys.
    No reason to do this.....AT ALL!!!! And if this is the case.....MLB 20 is dead to me. They just killed the game.
    Unreal.

    While I certainly understand your frustration, I think we should probably give the devs the benefit of the doubt and not think that something nefarious is going on. Also, I'm sure they are working from home, which represents challenges we'll never know. I'm down with waiting longer for larger bug fix patches if it means that it minimizes new bugs, but who knows what their strategy is.
    So far, I'm happy with the game overall. Also, thank you for the sliders, Armor

    But those things have nothing to do with this! They don't use auto fielding or base-running (though most of them probably should). They want "control" and to be able to execute their bunt cheese stuff.

    ok - I'm out. I get it. I also think I've offended some of you establishment guys with my rosters and comments here lately. I've kinda sensed about every comment I make here is laughed at. So I get it. Take care.
    I came here to figure out why the hell I couldn’t see where a baserunner was at when fielding. Ended up throwing the ball way over the first baseman’s head on the very first play.
    The only thing I can think of is that they were trying to make it so that the runner window wouldn’t be shown if there was auto fielding AND auto throwing, making the screen a little bit more clean. However, why can’t we just leave the “Runner Windows” option to do what it’s meant to?
    Years ago, I remember somebody posting that they were worried classic pitching would eventually be removed. And one of the developers responded that they didn't believe in taking away options. Where did that philosophy go?
    Compared to taking away an entire mode (RIP Season mode, I miss you) some of this stuff is relatively minor. But this minor stuff greatly impacts the user experience, depending on how you play. Between this and the rosters mess, this launch has been very disappointing.

    mkharsh is 100% correct...SCEA #1 focus is the online players...blowing this game up to be a slugfest. Only example you need is bunting...and they destroyed butting a fee years ago. All because online cheesers... now with "perfect perfect" on both hitting and throwing...its turning into online Madden and 2k.
    It is sad that in these times of uncertainty that they do this. A lot of people are struggling to put food on the table with no jobs. This game is entertainment yet important to a lot of us. They take away an option that a lot of people need and make it unplayable for them. Rad a lot of comments that they are going back to 19. Making that $60-90 that they spent on this unplayable game that could have been 1-2 weeks of groceries for people.
    Maybe they will advertise in the winter that MLB 21 will now have a runner window. But early!
    Some good news on 1.06
    If you, like me like to play without the pitch info white dot displayed......the pitch type and pitch velocity is now back on the score bug!!
    So it was fixed.
    The issues with the base runner interface design decision, is they tied it to the auto fielding toggle “INSTEAD” of the throw decision toggle.
    I totally get it if a person is playing full auto fielding and auto throw.....you don’t really need to see that runner interface for the CPU.
    BUT THOSE that play with auto fielding and MANUAL throwing (where we like to make all the throws) NEED THAT INTERFACE DISPLAYED so we can make throwing decisions!!!!
    SO they hacked it to the wrong toggle.
    This can be fixed. And it needs to be ASAP.

    I totally agree with everything you’ve said. And yes, it will be a major disappointment if this issue isn’t reversed. I’ve played much like you since 2009 with auto base running and fielding and manual throwing. Everything is out of whack now. I hope you’re correct and they fix this soon. Appreciate your thoughts and comments!

    Again incredibly disappointed in the execution, decisions and utter failures of these last several updates as well as removing the “pitch callout” toggle which never ever should have been removed to begin with. This started the path we are on by having them patch in an all or nothing toggle on the white dot pitch callout but at the same time removing pitch speeds and types from the score bug. Then at the same time introducing this freaking blue circle underneath our fielders for those playing clean screen auto fielding (manual throwing or not does not matter was never there before) and now we got the base runner interface REMOVED!!!! WHY!!!
    Anyway.......it is a total unmitigated mess.

    I agree. This is beyond frustrating as it has been my one escape from the scary world we are living in and now I don’t even have that.
    SDS used to be so good about adding to their game and not removing things but that has clearly changed.
    It is becoming clear they do not test things when releasing patches and that, to me, is inexcusable.

    Well I certainly have been defending SDS this year, and I am still overjoyed with the product. I, fortunately, did not download 1.06. I agree this is a major issue for those of us who play AF and manual throw. I do think they need to re-visit their current QC model. Let's hope this gets corrected ASAP and it doesn't create new bugs like AB.

    A lot of us are really hot on this right now......this is not needed. Clean screen has been turned on it’s ear here with the last two updates.
    Your comment is completely off base.
    I use auto base running and would manually send the lead runner sometimes or try to stretch a single into a double. Now I cant see the runner (batter) because the diamond is missing! Why remove this? This is infuriating. I have no interest in manually controlling all the base runners, just the ones I choose to.
    Report it report it report it. (file the big report and also include the blue circle under the fielders in auto fielding that was introduced on 1.05 for those that auto field).
    The more we report it the quicker it will be reversed.
    I stopped the download just in-time and turn off any automatic downloads. Being only a sports gamer, I think this is a needed step from now-on.
    Like many of you, I am frustrated by these recent patches. MLBTS has always been the gold-standard in providing options. Different inputs, configurations, presentation elements, arguably they are the best at it out of any sports games. Worst, is they're making these changes without details on why. It's seem so counterintuitive to the way they have done things in the past.
    On top of that, they're normally great about not breaking things with patches. I know we have a pandemic on our hands, but these errors just don't seem SDS like at-all.
    I'll be playing 1.05 until I these issues are addressed.

    Agreed. And these are simply minuscule problems compared to the real tragedies taking place around the country. I am totally ok with waiting for fixes.
    It has been very “un” SDS like though this release. And it is quite apparent they have a bunch of rookies helping out with updates. Things are off kilter in the dugout.
    They are going to have to get through this as well and get back to playing winning baseball.
    (you can se I am trying to be light hearted here and have some positive energy and pep talking to them).
    Let’s go boys......break the losing streak here the past two weeks LOL.
    I work in software development for a much different client base (Pharma and consumer goods) but I feel their pain. They have a schedule they need to try and stick to for this years game and likely extremely short resources.
    For example all our testing is done in India. Last week they were told with no notice transportation is shut off and you can't travel for 21 days. Nobody could have planned for that and yet stuff still needs to get done.
    So A. I would give them a lot of credit for continuing to push stuff out even if we don't like some of it. B. I'd highly recommend they avoid major changes like changing the running windows. It just doesn't help anyone. And resourcing right now sucks balls.
    Stay safe everyone. :waytogo:

    I find it interesting that you're always going on about how great the game is and how great the SDS team is, and I've seen many times you discount people who may have issues with some of the knee jerk design decisions or tell them they should calm down,etc but now when they do something stupid like this that affects YOU,all of a sudden you're up in arms about it! Don't get me wrong, I agree with you, it's another bone head move on SDS's part, I think very little of this design team at this point, I think they don't care about ANYONE outside of Diamond Dynasty and milking people to buy cards, those days of listening to the sim people, those days are LONG gone. The moment they introduced DD, I knew it was over for all of us.
    So basically I'm saying, I understand your frustration with this issue, but you come off as a massive hypocrite.

    In-Game:
    * Fixed a rare occurrence where deep hit balls could bounce under and through the OF wall, resulting in a ground rule double. We also fixed one occurrence where the ball could pass through the HR wall on the fly.
    * Fixed a specific situation where the baserunner would go into base standing, when he needed to be urgently sliding.

    Luckily I hadn't experienced these when playing, and glad now that I won't since they have been fixed.

    Just set the 40 man rosters in the roster file before starting franchise. That'll keep teams from auto-populating the 40-man; using a roster where only the 26 MLB guys are on the 40-man roster is a bad idea.
    Then the CPU will set the lineups/rotations appropriately based on the talent and ratings of the players on-hand but they shouldn't add/remove players from the 40 man.
    WTF was the point in removing the base runner window on the screen?!? Now we basically have to play blind. The absurd amount of home runs had almost killed this game for me, this stupid and unnecessary move was the final nail in the coffin. Terrible job SDS. Very disappointed in you on this one. But, I’m not a DD player so I doubt they care.

    I find it interesting that you're always going on about how great the game is and how great the SDS team is, and I've seen many times you discount people who may have issues with some of the knee jerk design decisions or tell them they should calm down,etc but now when they do something stupid like this that affects YOU,all of a sudden you're up in arms about it! Don't get me wrong, I agree with you, it's another bone head move on SDS's part, I think very little of this design team at this point, I think they don't care about ANYONE outside of Diamond Dynasty and milking people to buy cards, those days of listening to the sim people, those days are LONG gone. The moment they introduced DD, I knew it was over for all of us.
    So basically I'm saying, I understand your frustration with this issue, but you come off as a massive hypocrite.

    Piss off man. I have always been objective.
    Seriously. Piss off.
    I really hope in one of the upcoming patches they add team records back to the TODAY'S GAMES screen. Stinks not being able to see team records when looking at pitching matchups prior to day's games and records after day's games have played out.

    Yep...this in a nutshell.
    It’s baffling to me why SDS doesn’t allow the user to decide which version they want to use. EA used to do this through, “tuner sets.” You could go in and pick to use 1.02, 1.06, etc.

    No one is overreacting. I love the gameplay, have been an ardent support since day one. These things need to be said. The base running windows. Somebody said it was by design, lol. If so, we should be asking what the heck they were thinking. A six year old would have picked up on how bad an idea this was. All they had to do was play a couple innings and it would have been obvious.
    We don’t speak up, they do nothing. Personally I just think they’re loading this game up with so much stuff and coding that it just might be the cause of so many bugs (and this year seems to be the worst.)
    Peace.
    I really hate that they took away the base runner window when you have auto on! I feel like I have no idea about what's happening on the base paths now, when I have men on and get a hit. Please, bring it back!

    Either you go manual fielding/manual throwing to see the runner diamond (assisted is manual)
    Or auto/auto to have a clean screen totally
    A ton of us play auto/manual (fielding/throwing) and can’t. We are throwing blind now after this update. It is attached to the wrong toggle. I get the intention of it. The execution though.....
    Anyway. Let’s all hope they get this stuff cleaned up on the next update (Blue circle under fielders when auto fielding/auto throw or manual throw and the runner diamond being gone for auto fielding manual throwing).
    Hopefully it’s only a matter of time before they revert this in the next patch. I guess they took the whole “clean screen” thing a bit too far! I don’t see them leaving it this way though. Just doesn't make sense as is.

    No matter how meant, its still completely tasteless given the death and despair the virus is causing in the real world, versus that of a feature removed from a video game.
    There's no doubt this is an extremely poor design choice, but there is zero reason to try to relate it to the real world implications COVID-19 is causing on people's health and daily livelihood.

    I was guilty of letting my emotions get the best of me this morning.
    Let’s all take a deep breath on all of this.
    They are going to get things right.
    For the time being I am going to an Auto/Auto set up until this get’s addressed. I think all clean screeners can do this to still enjoy the heck out of this game while they work through all this stuff.
    I realize is it massively disappointing and I do not disagree the execution has been really bad on the last two updates.
    But there really is some awful crap going on in our country and around the world right now.
    I am pumping the brakes hard on this stuff. It is all about perspective.
    I have always been objective and will always call out errors and mistakes made. And that will never stop. But I feel terrible about my behavior this morning. And I realized just how stressed out I am about life right now because of all this Covid stuff we are living through.
    I have clients being heavily affected both personally and financially and I am being a rock for all of them.....and you know what. I am human too. And I just boiled over this morning.
    I think most that know me.....know I am a positive glass half full guy. I still very much am.
    This game will be right soon enough. But more importantly I hope and pray we all get through this incredible crisis we are living through healthy and firmly on our feet.

    Yes I have a 28 week pregnant wife which is over 2 hours travel to the hospital, can’t even go to appointment. And she’s high risk with heart conditions.
    My mother has cancer I’m. Not even allowed to see her I list my father last year to cancer. Who knows how my jobs going half working at home Half at work there is talk of standing down people. So now only 1 wage for family right now
    Also have a autistic 2 year old who isn’t allowed in hospitals. And your not suppose to have grandkids at grandparents being 2 hours away I wonder who looks after him?? Maybe I’ll even miss the birth of my daughter
    So yes this “game” kept me away from all this crap which o wax frustrating this virus is literately ruining my life right now and we don’t even have it. I don’t wanna hear about how others have it worse because that doesn’t make me feel any better.
    So note my frustration. And uncalled for comment I may not have the virus but it’s screwing my life and mentally I wish I was in a coma now and having to wake up... this game kept me going. Thank god I got final fantasy 7 Remake early yesterday.

    As someone in healthcare who is potentially exposed to this virus every day, this is way too far and completely out of line. The supply shortages are real and this is unprecedented. Hospitals are becoming dog eat dog for supplies. I will not derail this thread but this had to be said.

    Auto auto kind of work around for fielding but there isn’t one fir offence, I hate manual base running I suck at it. I get triple played in a mess or forget to move the runners with auto on it was great and I still could steal or hit L1 to tag., now the “hit L1 to tag” doesn’t even pop up now when your trying to tag blindly. And you got no idea to hit l1 or r1 to move all runners back or forward.
    This is terrible. Why would you remove the baserunner windows? Now I have no idea where the cpu runners are when fielding. How am I going to know if I should be trying to make a play at the plate or hitting the cutoff man without them? Totally unplayable like this. I had never played auto fielding until this year after the suggestion of Armor and Sword with his sliders, once I tried it I grew to enjoy it a lot. It makes the game even more realistic I could go back to manual fielding but I enjoy the realism I get with this, SCEA I hope you fix this back soon.

    Certainly not me. I never even gave much thought to HOW MUCH I look at the thing, but my eyes go to where it used to be every time I put a ball into play. Depending on your camera settings, now we can't even see if our baserunner is trying to turn a single into a double. I feel totally in the dark.
    I haven’t had a chance to play yet since the patch. Had a few questions if anyone wouldn’t mind answering. I have my PlayStation disconnected from the internet so not sure if I want to download or not yet. If I Manuel field and Manuel throwing will the baserunning window effect me? And have they changed any pitch speeds? I liked how they were I know they didn’t put it in the notes but sometimes It will change after a patch. If anyone who has downloaded the patch could answer those questions I would appreciate it
    Did they do anything to the hitting? All of the sudden I'm hitting bombs like crazy with the power slider on three. I don't mean wall scrapers either the shortest one was 425ft. It could be a coincidence. But going back to back to back off Max Scherzer to start a game???? �� Edit make it 4

    It is not the runner windows Caulfield.
    I play with them off too!
    It is the diamond in then upper right corner of your screen when the CPU
    Puts a ball into ball you can see where their base runners are going.
    Now you can’t on auto fielding and manual throwing. They routed the baserunning interface OSD diamond to the wrong toggle.
    It should be associated with auto throwing not auto fielding.
    So if you auto field but like to make all your own throws you need that OSD to know what the heck is going on with CPU baserunners.
    They will fix it. I am confident they simply coded it wrong.

    I kind of like not having that big *** diamond on the screen. I'm not finding it too difficult to figure out where to throw, either. I don't think it's difficult to judge where to throw based on the speed of the baserunner and how/where the ball is hit.
    It would be awesome if the fielders gave verbal cues about where to throw, but I could imagine that would be difficult to add.

    Without doubt this has been the most disappointing Show release I can remember.
    From being suckered in to paying the extra to get the game on a Friday because of the lure of "full minors out of the box", only to discover this was nothing of the sort, to the white dot pitch call-out, the blue fielding circle, the pitch speed and type disappearing from the score bug, and now this.
    And these are only the things that affect me, there are a myriad of other complaints about other issues affecting people's enjoyment and even ability to play the game.
    As we all know these are stressful times, which is why we need the escapism of The Show even more so than normal, to fill the gigantic void of no sports, and to be honest, I still have to do my job to the best of my ability from home, as do millions of others, nurses and other key workers are having to do their jobs under great adversity, which actually to me at least makes SDS's appallingly shoddy performance even more pathetic in the light of key workers having to make sacrifices and so on.
    Just bitterly disappointed by the whole thing.
    It's all Ramone's fault. Gotta blame someone.

    I can cancel the patch download if it hasn't fully downloaded yet, correct? I'll just stick with 1.05 until these issues get fixed.
    I did just that.

    I have been now regulated to online DD until all this is fixed.

    Maybe that is the whole point? It's a conspiracy. They only want you to play DD since that is their bread and butter. I honestly don't get the fascination with DD. It's basically fantasy baseball. Totally unrealistic.

    What’s the rationale behind those that use auto-fielding and auto-baserunning? *Everyone I know that plays uses manual, so just curious why others are using auto and if there is any advantage to it.
    Because some people like me suck at manual running.

    I stopped the download too. I keep deleting it but when I start the game it goes again. I have canceled all auto updates and downloads from PS4 settings.
    Do you just have to stop the download every time you start MLBTS?

    You can download it as long as you don’t install. Just say no when it asks if you want to restart the game and update, then just put your PS4 into rest mode when you’re done playing and never exit the game until an update comes along that you actually want. Obviously this only works if you 1.) only play offline modes and 2.) don’t play any other games on your PS4 other than The Show.

    Thank you for the response. I kinda feel guilty though now. Wish everyone could enjoy the game to its fullest too.

    It’s all good. WE are playing auto/auto till this is properly implemented. We hope it will be fixed to where it is tied to auto throwing.....not auto fielding.
    Those of us that auto field guy manual throw....I should say most of us like having the diamond to see the runners intentions......even though a bunch of know how to play baseball (played for 45 years for christ sakes) I don’t like being blind. I like seeing what the heck is going on.
    Too many other variables can come into play during stretch doubles and triples and knowing if we should hit the cut or go for a seed throw to gun down a runner. Simple as that.

    Did they fix the roster issue in franchise at least? Where the rosters wouldn’t stick..
    LOL!!! One of the most glaring bugs and still no fix.

    Just set the 40 man rosters in the roster file before starting franchise. That'll keep teams from auto-populating the 40-man; using a roster where only the 26 MLB guys are on the 40-man roster is a bad idea.
    Then the CPU will set the lineups/rotations appropriately based on the talent and ratings of the players on-hand but they shouldn't add/remove players from the 40 man.
    Can you please explain more in depth on this subject? I am reading different answers on this roster sticking bug.

    Which is what happened to me. I still have it in queue Just did not install it.

    I was able to stop it from DLing also. I'm also auto field,run and manual and kinda surprised there are that many guys that play that way. I've been playing this game every day this week and for the life of me,do not remember if I use that diamond running visual or not? (64 year old mind has been on vacation for 2 weeks,that ends on Monday,this virus appears not to bother construction too much here in Fla.) Anyways,when I boot up tomorrow,you bet I'll will see if I use that.
    And thinking about that blue circle,, didn't that bug rear its ugly head a couple of years back? Stay safe gents !
    I do everything manually except run the bases. I'm just total crap at it, and have a really hard time getting the lead runner to move without all of them doing so. Which leads to me either not taking nearly as many bases as I could have, or else having my trailing runner thrown out when he absolutely shouldn't have been running at all. Which all leads to scoring a lot fewer runs than I otherwise would, and makes the game less fun.
    I always play auto fielding / auto base running and it’s annoying they took the diamond away. I wish it was an option instead of a permanent removal.

    Same problem. I like AF because the ratings dictate outcome. I use AB for the exact reasons you list. Drives me crazy to manual run. With AB I still have some control because I can override run decisions.
    Baserunning is broken for me in Rtts.  After updating to 1.06 it has happened a bunch of times now that I'll hit the ball into the gap in outfield...yet the dude on 2nd just stands there waiting to see if it is caught even though there is no chance it will.  By the time he takes off the ball is almost on his way back.  Multiple times that a hit into the gap in outfield didn't get the guy home from 2nd.  This was never ever the case.
    What stings though is that this happened about 3 times last night if not more...finished the season on 189 RBI's for the season...3 short of getting the new record :(

    New patch 1.07 due this morning that fixes both the base runner diamond and the fielding indicator.

    Well they came through. In one day. That is incredibly impressive.

    can confirm ivy is fixed at wrigley. yay.
    game is fine. You guys are overreacting, I don't tread water here much anymore.
    I noticed most of them on my own, I was annoyed, but even told my wife, I bet they are stressed out in different ways themselves (devs)...They'll fix the unintentional glitches. Keep in mind whats going on, probably some brains that are anxious, I know mine is. my family business was shutdown indefinitely, been there twenty years, I have been forgetful and a lil weird. The UI bugs are annoying, but they'll fix em.

    Wrigley ivy is fixed?? I just deleted patch 1.6 in the middle of the Download. Then patch 1.7 starting downloading and I let that one finish downloading. So I’m wondering if that is why the ivy isn’t fixed for me
    Wow the absolute vitriol shown in the early part of this thread was just downright embarrassing..and by grown men no less..especially with what is going on across the world...smh.
    Oh look they released another patch that fixed everything within 24 hours...I bet there the greatest once again....shame on y'all

    It turns green too quickly this year. Its brown and dead looking at the start, but is green before the end of April. Not sure if they'll fix that, as I'm in May now.

    Oh okay I wonder if it’s because I did a play now game. I bet it is only brown in early April in franchise mode. Not in a play now game if you select April

    This patch was only released to fix the problems caused by the two previous patches.
    Had there been no issues with the previous patches, update 1.07 wouldn’t have come out today.

    I was guilty of letting my emotions get the best of me this morning.
    Let’s all take a deep breath on all of this.
    They are going to get things right.
    For the time being I am going to an Auto/Auto set up until this get’s addressed. I think all clean screeners can do this to still enjoy the heck out of this game while they work through all this stuff.
    I realize is it massively disappointing and I do not disagree the execution has been really bad on the last two updates.
    But there really is some awful crap going on in our country and around the world right now.
    I am pumping the brakes hard on this stuff. It is all about perspective.
    I have always been objective and will always call out errors and mistakes made. And that will never stop. But I feel terrible about my behavior this morning. And I realized just how stressed out I am about life right now because of all this Covid stuff we are living through.
    I have clients being heavily affected both personally and financially and I am being a rock for all of them.....and you know what. I am human too. And I just boiled over this morning.
    I think most that know me.....know I am a positive glass half full guy. I still very much am.
    This game will be right soon enough. But more importantly I hope and pray we all get through this incredible crisis we are living through healthy and firmly on our feet.

    I am not sure who this was directed at,
    But you are right.
    And my post above yours is what humility is all about. I leave my ego at the door. I have no qualms of owning up when I am wrong. I was out of line with some of my adjectives in describing my frustrations with the last few updates. It happens. I am human. And I am very passionate about this game. In fact I have been pretty consistent in never really getting all worked up. But those circumstances you speak of.....yeah we are all living with this situation and it boiled over in here for me. I think more of my venom was about pent up emotions I have been storing away to be strong for my family and my clients etc. And this simply set it off. Normally I never behave like this. It was very out of character for me and I am ashamed of it. It is a video game after all. But it is one that I have loved and have poured thousands upon thousands of hours into. And yes I have other hobbies!!! I coach baseball, I play in a rock band....but The Show is like re-living my childhood over and over each and every time I pick up the controller and take on the roles of all my favorite players from yesteryear and today.
    So let’s all move on. We all love this game and we all support the developers a ton. And The Show forum here has always been a model for maturity and sensible discussion.
    Stay safe and take care.
