  1. YES!!! Search function for stadiums!! I’m honestly shocked they added this so quick. Figured it would get added on the next patch. No gameplay changes which is great!!
    I reported a small issue with some equipment and I hope it gets fixed. If not, it's not the end of the world...
    "Various updates to descriptions and textures for equipment items"
    Also looking forward to SOTS working properly, and hopefully we can download rosters, other than that I think I can finally start a chise and turn off the internet to the system.

    Can we still hate SDS? :y15:
    Crash fixes.....fingers crossed and the search function in the stadium creator!!!! Hallelujah.

    Still didn't add a knuckleball for RTTS, so yeah..
    tessl
    Now if they could fix the issue I can't find a ps5 for sale anywhere. :-)

    To be fair, they can easily be found... at an inflated price.
    That said, I don't think they'll be on store shelves anytime soon...
    Anyone know what this means?

    On a few are sleeves the textures were off and some equipment didn’t look right when equipped so I’m assuming it means fixing that.
    Was hoping to hear something about framerate on Xbox consoles. Hoping to be pleasantly surprised when I fire it up on Series X tomorrow. Awesome fixes though! Now I can continue my RTTS and progress like normal.

    Very nice update. I wonder if this will fix the announcers saying that this is the 2nd game of the series when it is the first game of the series.

    You must not have started Franchise? There are several bugs along these lines. Wait until you get to 3rd or 4th game of a series.

    Yeah I have seen those too. I know it says on the 3rd game that the other team is going for the sweep. I know the series recap will have 3 game scores on the 3rd game.
    I hope when it says broadcast adjustments that those are the fixes.

    hopefully they fixed equipment bumps while in rtts games not showing . not sure i saw that in patch notes unless i just missed it.

    What do you mean exactly by equipment bumps? If talking about seeing how the equipment effects in game they did say the attributes will show the other levels while playing. If you mean seeing those bumps on the character while not playing, they for some reason never show that. It’s a really odd thing. When you play you get the boost but they have never shown the gear actually increasing your level. Always bothered me.
    Didn’t see it listed, but I really hope the game start times in franchise are fixed. A lot of teams are having nothing but day games at home, and it’s annoying.

    Okay, so they fixed the issue with downloading rosters. What about the issue when loading a roster?

    Noticed the same thing. I really hope it’s just an oversight because I never had any problem downloading or saving, nor did I ever get any error message, so, technically, nothing in that particular patchnote applies to me. My issue is loading. There should either be another note that mentions loading specifically or they just forgot to mention it entirely. I sure hope it’s the latter.
    .... it’s gotta be the latter. Right? 🥴

    Unfortunately not fixed.
    In addition, now when you hit the left d-pad the out of town score ticker disappears.. Ugh
    Edit: you can get it back though if you hit the menu button.
    Also the "do up" list is supposed to show up in the quick menu, but I'm not sure where it's supposed to show up? I thought it was when you hit the left d-pad.. (was hoping we would also get back speed) . It has always been there for the d-pad up, which is a pain because you still have to hit back button ... so where is it?

    Were they suppose to fix same 3 pitches for each RTTS guy? Because they didn't. Its intended?

    it asks you at the start what three pitches you want

    Yeah for one guy can't have a 2nd or 3rd pitcher with different pitches. Or if you selected wrong at the start you have to wait for BP sessions. Dumb.
    I only simmed a couple of seasons but the 40 man issue seems to be fixed in new and existing franchises with the following caveats:
    1. rule 5 draft is improved but still a few too many good players available
    2. 40 man logic needs some work (i.e. who is kept and who is cut)
    3. teams will still keep less than 40 players (sometimes 32-34) in the off-season (I can't remember if it was like this in previous games)
    Glad the fix came so quickly as franchise is at least playable now. If SDS can refine the 40 man logic issues and adjust the free agent contract issues, I will be a very happy player.

    Still not able to have NIGHT games in created stadiums ?

    Nope, Tried this morning.
    That will likely come in a future patch as they said they are working on it. It wasn’t listed in yesterday’s patch fixes.
    I’m so thankful they finally added the search feature in stadium creator. I wanted to check it out earlier but the servers were down.

    Doesn't appear it is the latter. It's a meaningless patch for the roster vault if we can't load the downloaded rosters, but that seems to be the case.
    I never had problems downloading them so the game is in the same broken state still.

    In past years, you could prompt a section (I forgot its name) where they displayed players added + player movements during the week. Can someone tell me where to find it or is it no longer there ?

    It's there somewhere in DD. Not sure the name right now and can't check, but I think's roster update or inside edge.

    I am being told that the rosters can still not be loaded into Franchise, hence the vault remains broken. LOL!

    The servers are off line and you can’t get into the vault at this time, so whose your source?
    The created stadiums at night seems like a bigger issue than we think. If someone only puts 1 light stand how would that lighting work? What if a stadium doesn’t have any? This seems like a very complicated problem that I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t get a fix for till next year or at all.

    Optimistic for this patch for RTTS and especially searching Stadiums! The only thing that stands out like a sore thumb to me is the Night games in created stadiums.

    LIAR! FRAUD! PHONY!

    I am on PS4 and I just downloaded a roster called Ed's Full Minors Roster 2.0. It worked ! In other words, I was able to UPLOAD it. It's got loads of prospects in A class on all teams + missing players from the Default Roster. As a bonus, it's got a beardless Rougned Odor ! Thanks SDS !!!

    That's what I'm wondering. Wondering if those files were corrupt or something.
    Ok so..
    Rosters BEFORE patch, do not download on PS5. (Suppose if you do get them to download, they're not loading into franchise)
    Rosters AFTER patch DO download and when you start new franchise, click load saved rosters, the roster sticks in franchise mode. I confirmed this because I am playing it now.
    So every roster dated before the patch is useless it seems.

    Assuming the creators that uploaded to the vault pre-patch can simply upload a new version now and it should work....right?
    On Series X, can still download rosters but when you go to load them it’s still just the default roster. Unreal.

    Can you fix the issue where a runner on second base unnecessarily slides into third on a base hit instead of turning the corner and heading for home like any sensible player has been taught to do since little league. How about a third option for Manual slides. Assisted and Automatic are not feasible for an experienced player like myself. I would rather get tagged out for not sliding then sliding for no reason.

    I just downloaded Ed’s roster 2.0 on ps4. It worked for me. Honestly it’s a shame the ages on almost all prospects are wrong still or I’d start a franchise.
    I wonder if ridin and his team can work around that and get ages correct? They’d have to CAP and start from scratch though. That’s a big task. Much respect to all those guys.

    I'm wondering if something inside the game were making those files corrupt and wasn't letting us load download them. I'm no expert or anything on this, but they probably fixed it where rosters were not getting corrupted and therefor new rosters can be downloaded. They probably couldn't fix the corrupted files.

    Honestly no roster will be franchise worthy until SDS fixes prospect ages on their default roster, because you can’t edit them. There’s honestly probably 100 wrong prospect ages. Starting with wander Franco

    I just uploaded a test roster if someone wants to see if it works properly.
    Acuna and Freeman should both have 0 potential
    psn knucklecutter

    I just went next door and downloaded my test roster on my neighbors system. I can confirm that the roster works. Both Acuna and Freeman had 0 potential.
    I'm going to delete the roster from the vault now.
    All the equipment between loadouts are still borked for me. UA compression sleeves still don't work. Going to see if the game uses the correct loadout I select pregame but as of now none of it seems fixed. ugh
    I know I have the patch as stadium creator has a search function.
    Ya this sucks. All my RTTS equipment is definitely effed. It doesn't load the equipment I have assigned to each loadout. Makes equipment pretty much useless unless I want to change it everytime before I hit or pitch.
    The good news is it actually loaded my pitcher loadout perks now when I selected pre game.
    Can anyone check and see if the one batting glove/long socks overriding your actual equipment settings glitch has been fixed? Thanks. I am on PS5, by the way.

    Dude you need to go away. This patch is fantastic! And quick.

    Goodie for you. But I don't want to use the same pitches over and over.

    I’m not sure it has to do with the number of lights in a stadium. You’d think that the lighting settings are based on time of day, month, weather, dome vs open, that sort of thing.

    I imagine that a stadium would have to have a minimum of amount of lights to light it up. Like depending on the size of the stadium...you would have to have so many lights throughout the park.

    For me it is. Using the same three pitches for each RTTS character is dumb and useless.

    They never said they were gonna fix that so you complaining about a patch not doing something you wanted serves no purpose. Go whine in the RTTS topic or theshow.com

    You can add additional pitches thru training sessions at least we can add more pitches that way

    Yes but then a 2nd SP will still have those same pitches. Change it on one through BP sessions it changes on the other.

    What the full name of his roster snd the username so I can use for franchise

    Ed’s full minor roster 2.0 is the name not sure who’s name it’s under as I’m away from my PS5 atm !!!
    This is a legit fantastic patch. Hats off.
    It's worth noting that in internet time, the distance between official release day and this patch is seemingly infinite, but in real time, we're talking about 10 days for a BUNCH of major fixes. I think that's pretty good.
    I haven’t been keeping up: does altering sliders in franchise mode still turn off DD XP? I just wanna turn down the trade frequency slider without losing out on DD stuff for when I occasionally play there.

    I think what people were mostly frustrated with was their lack of communication with us customers.

    Totally get that, NY. Definitely not trying to shade folks who bought the game early or wanted more info from the development team. Just trying to give some credit to a relatively short turnaround for fixing many significant issues. I, for one, was surprised at everything they crammed into this patch.
    So the framerate on Series X seems alot better to me! Cutscenes don't have that weird laggy feeling anymore and everything is a ton smoother. Definitely happy about that.

    The owner transfered all the SDS devs in the FA slot and replaced them with prospects. He also created some veterans missing in the game. All fake players appeared to have been replaced by real players albeit some of those are actually FA. Oh well, nobody's perfect ! All in all, it appears to be a great roster.

    I've only played one game since the patch, but this was the first thing I noticed while playing in Yankee Stadium. Only my 2nd game in Yankee Stadium, so I'll be interested to see if i still notice a difference once I'm back at my home ballpark.

    Haven’t noticed it myself but maybe they couldn’t figure out the low light issues in the specific stadiums so they just upped the brightness overal haha.
    The patch has made road to the show unplayable for me on xbox 1s. Soon as I get to a game or just before it loads in the game crashes and sends me back to xbox home screen. Tried deleting local saved data and clearing the cache, didn't help. Haven't tried to see if it crashes on other game modes.
    Road to the show still has same issues. I tried started a new one just incase the update only worked with new RTTS. I still have no XP gained during RTTS. Its still broken. My player will grow attributes but not affect anything XP Related
    Just installed the patch on Series X and fired up a quick exhibition game. Without a doubt it isn’t nearly as smooth as it was before. Definitely nowhere near 60 frames. Not sure what happened but it’s choppy during pitch deliveries and during any fast movement.

    You cant try to download rosters with a date and time before the patch.
    Forbes Field – Fixed an issue that would cause a random player from the batting team to occasionally go frolicking through the field at the start of an inning
    Aw, don't fix that, that sounds lovely!
    When creating a player, the player’s hands should no longer escape from their wrists and float away while scrolling too quickly through animations
    That is good; hands escaping from wrists is not good.
    Although roster construction is better with 40 man and injuries it is still happening. Not as often but I'm in June on a test sim and 2 teams have played over a month short.

    Did the patch ruin T-Mobile Park (Mariners) or has it always been ruined on PS4? There is a red sign in left center, played exhibition with roof closed and rain. The sign obnoxiously flashed like a police light and made the game unplayable.
    I run the show on regular PS4 with HDR on and have had zero issues with the game until this. Game looks great but this is ridiculous.

    I’m not sure it has to do with the number of lights in a stadium. You’d think that the lighting settings are based on time of day, month, weather, dome vs open, that sort of thing.

    First game after the patch. So far so good. Lighting at Nationals Park seems better. It looks like everything is brighter but not necessarily lighted. Like last year the Nationals sign on the scoreboard looked like it was lit now after patch it just seems its been brightened but not like it is lit up if that makes sense. But I will take it as it does look better by the batters eye and beyond. I didnt experience any frame rate issues on the ps5 post patch but I've only done 1 game.

    Yeah in previous years all the scoreboards and screens had a glow around ‘m like they were really lit up bit for some reason they removed that effect. Maybe because everything is LED now whicht doesn’t give such a glow as the old screens...?

    I have been playing both XSX and PS5 versions, much prefer the PS5. FPS drops are quite noticeable in cut scenes / walk ups on XSX. There are still drops on PS5 but much less drastic. Overall a smoother experience on PS5. I also prefer the controls on PS5, it feels much tighter and more responsive on PS5 controller. Just my personal experience and opinion.

    Yeah it definitely plays the best on PS5, which to me is understandable. Prior to the patch, the Series X version was very choppy but my experience after the patch has been nothing but smooth.

    Maybe he was talking about the condition of the game on its early release, which the game did get a patch before it's primary release. The game did stutter like crazy before the prerelease patch.

    Anyone else using custom rosters in play now games and the game crashing? Cant play a game unless I leave the rosters alone.

    I am using the original roster, not the Live Roster that was downloaded with patch- and I’ve been customizing it getting it ready for a Franchise..
    If by “ play now” you mean exhibition-I’ve only had one incident where the game treated the 3 inning as the 9th and pinch hit for the pitchers announcer actually referred to game as the 9th.
    But I’ve had no crashes in exhibition.....Franchise is on hold because of crashing issues

    Well yes and no, some new tv’s like the LG CX have VRR (variable refresh rate).
    “The frame rate of a game constantly changes depending on the amount of processing going on: a less busy part of a game might run at a relatively consistent frame rate of, say, 50fps (although in reality this number will almost always fluctuate a bit), but a sudden explosion could see the console have to suddenly work much harder and the frame rate drop to 30fps or even lower. These constant and sudden changes in frame rate can cause stutter and tearing on displays that run at static refresh rates - which is pretty much all of them.
    That’s where VRR comes in. A TV that supports VRR will dynamically match its refresh rate to the frame rate of the game, keeping pace with all of these changes. The result is smoother, more consistent gameplay.”

    No XP or stat tracking added for the Universal Profile like EVERY previous version of The Show?! Why not? This can’t be hard to implement...

    I’ve worked in software development (not gaming, but it’s very similar), and that’s the kind of comment I’ve heard some many times. The true answer is: we don’t know. What seems easy on the surface may not be that obvious. And if the game wasn’t developed with that functionality in mind, it wasn’t a priority, obviously, and adding it might not be that straightforward. Not saying it can’t be done. But people have to move away from that notion that little things are easy to implement.

    VRR only works if the tv and console offer it. PS5 offers no such thing so it does not matter that the tv has that.
    And VRR has nothing to do with fps drops. That is caused by the game and console specs. VRR on the tv just matches the tvs refresh rate to the games fps so if it dips in fps the tv matches it which lessens screen tears but it cannot fix fps drops
    But again on PS5 it does not matter as PS5 has no VRR support. It does on series x but the fps is based on the game and console, not the tv or the VRR

    What does the tv you have help you not notice it as much? There is no such thing as you claim you are on PS which offers no VRR support so it does not matter if a tv offers VRR since PS5 and PS4 pro has no VRR support.

    How are we getting frame rate drops on a game that is almost identical to last gen in terms of visuals?
    Is this a dev thing they need to do better or are we already at the stage where the ps5 can’t handle the visuals?

    Hold on a second. While I respect your knowledge in your field....he is not asking for something new. He is asking why something that has been a part of the game for long long time was suddenly gone. Where did it go? What changed so drastically that it is gone? And no explanation (yet again on things removed).
    I think it is fairly obvious that things were removed with the development of the game on a new console other than the Playstation. If it is not apparent to some......realize this was the cost this cycle (and hopefully only this cycle) of going to another console. It is what it is.
    I think it is a case of "well we cannot do that with this infrastructure for that console like we could for this console”. Maybe I am wrong....I am no software or hardware expert. Just trying to use my common sense here.
    We know features must match to a tee on both next gen consoles. Obvious at this point.
