  1. I was REALLY hoping they would fix the wrong schedule start times in franchise and also the audio commentary and the on screen displays in franchise pertaining to the wrong number of games played and the wrong scores shown in the games that have been played. Maybe next time...

    Yes! Many, too many Dodgers games are day games when they should be night games. Pleeeeese fix this! Thank You.

    I guess there is always a slim chance it was fixed without mentioning it. But I doubt it. They didn’t say the “other fixes” like they sometimes do.
    Glad the playoff bug is fixed. But I guess they have a priority list so hopefully it will get fixed soon.

    Hopefully we'll see a smoother framerate on Xbox. Wasn't in the patch notes but holding out hope.

    Archie, where are you seeing frame rate drops on Series X? I see them during batter walk ups and things like that, but never during gameplay. I’ve actually grown to prefer this game on my Series X over PS5 because combined with my LG CX and Series X, the game looks so good and I feel like the latency during gameplay is better on Series X than it is on PS5. I really notice this while using meter pitching and also timing things up while hitting.
    I also see in the patch notes a fix on lighting in some of the stadiums...which is really my main complaint with the game. So if this is fixed, wow I’m never going to stop playing this game lol.

  3. I'm so glad I waited to start my NLDS vs the Braves.
    Yesterday I couldn't add Muncy, who came off the IL after the Regular Season, to my playoff roster. After the Patch I can add him. So this also works in existing Franchises.

    The lighting at Busch is still not fixed.
    The Birds on the Bats and Cardinals still need to be lit up like the clock ... and " World Champions" needs to be lit up as well.
    Very disappointing this wasn't fixed.

    I doubt there’s anything they can do at this point…… it’s hard to believe it’s not perfect considering the graphical improvements weren’t huge…….. it’s not terrible but on certain cutscenes u can definitely see some slowdowns on the FPS

    It's happening randomly for me. It's very jarring, but fortunately it's only the top half of the 1st in my experience. It's strange only hearing the ball, gloves, birds, footsteps, and of course the commentators. The footsteps kind of make me laugh hearing them, but it's an annoying bug overall.

    2 of my big problems addressed. RTTS equipment attributes and created stadiums not showing after resuming an ingame save.

    I just tested this. I got a different stadium after I saved my franchise game and loaded it back up. At least there were fans in the stands (previously the stands would be empty).
    Amazing. Did a second test. Used one of the beautiful created stadiums, saved, reloaded and got that dumb field of dreams stadium!!! Before the patch I would get the same stadium, but it wouldn't have any fans in the stands.
    A 3rd test, different stadium, not even one of the 30 that I have saved. At least there were fans in the stands, but some of these loaded stadiums are awful.
    So we wait ANOTHER week to fix the fix?

    Working fine for me just tested it and I’m back in my stadium with fans no issues. On ps5.
    Edit: I did however just notice one of my upper deck seating sections is all messed up though, so thats interesting.
    Edit 2: ohhh boy. In game saves load stadium back up sure thats cool, but now whether you’re starting a fresh game or loading in game save the custom stadiums load with seating issues. The fans will be in place but the stands won’t be, essentially leaving floating fans. Fix one thing, break another.

    Well, seems patches are a weekly thing. I’m like you. At my age I have to save some games and this issue was big. Did you ever have the issue of zero fans/crowd noise gone when you reloaded? For me EVERY time. Now the crowds back, but I get some funky looking stadium.
    Do you think this has anything to do with the 18,000+ stadiums (most of them junk) in the vault?
    It is sad that this falls through their testing. So now next week’s patch will again try to attempt their last patch. And the scheduled start times and the sweeps will keep getting pushed to the back burner.

    I don’t recall having any audio issues but I also wasn’t paying attention for it. As soon as I’d see my stadium wasn’t there I’d just exit and then stopped trying.
    I agree with you though, in game saves are what allows me to get through my franchise with the schedule I have. Was a huge feature for me. I’ll deal til they patch but obviously wish we didn’t have to haha
    I’m really not sure about the vault thing but could be... either way that vault and the way we get to save stadiums definitely needs some tweaks.

    I agree. But I think on their side of things, that is not on top of their list. The game is playable through that as that is just cosmetic.
    Currently having an issue when starting a new franchise. The MLB roster is a 40-man and then the CPU moves all Single A (injured IRL) players into the 26 man when it switches. I feel like this is an issue right after this patch launched...

    Really? As of a few days ago I feel like I tried started a franchise w/ the Athletics who play the Stros first game and Verlander was not the starter, he was still in Single A...
    Now I keep getting disconnected from the vault. It doesn't look like they addressed the nerfed contact hitting either. So far one of the worst MLBTS games put out. Hoping it gets better.

    What's nerfed about contact hitting. I use it all the time and have hit most of my HR's with it.

    Depends if he was on 40 man. If he is not on 40 then cpu roster logic dictates and usually only adds guys if there is an injury. If he was on 40 best players are put on mlb roster.

    I think he misspoke, I don't think he meant "nerfed". I think what he's referring to is the fact that contact hitting is glitched and producing too much power.

    I would be inclined to agree with this. I've hit more HR's with contact swing than not. It feels like there is no power drop-off this year with the swing while your PCI nearly doubles. There's almost zero reason to not contact swing if you're using zone hitting.
    They said they fixed equipment in RTTS but I’ll bet money my dude will revert back to high socks and a single batting glove the instant I check my loadout.

    After a few games post patch on Series X, it does seem to play a tad smoother but honestly not much. Not sure if there is anything they can really do at this point, or maybe it's not a priority. Wasn't seeing the choppy gameplay on hits down the line which was nice, but cutscenes still need some work. It's just jarring to go from smooth gameplay to stuttering cutscenes. Gameplay is at its worst when playing in the rain, although I haven't tested that yet since the patch dropped. Yesterday I was playing a game in the rain at Citi Field and I had to stop halfway through bc the framerate was so bad.

    I'm seeing them mostly during cutscenes, replays, hits down the line, foul balls. It just doesn't play as smooth as it does on PS5. I'm sure your LG CX helps a bit with the he being a tad smoother. Since I believe it's HDMI 2.1 and you can't turn on auto low latency on the Series X with that tv. I'm actually going to be buying that tv as soon as we move in July.
    *Edit* I meant to say you CAN turn on low latency on the Series X with that tv. But yeah, the VRR is basically one of the reasons I want the CX
    Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
    Yea I’m not a tech expert, but I think you may be right, as my TV and the Series X support variable refresh rate. This is supposed to help you barely or not even notice small dips in frame rate during gameplay, if I understand it correctly. And I want to say the PS5 does not support VRR just yet, but that doesn’t even matter when it comes to this game because it does run damn good on PS5.
    And I can’t recommend the CX enough. I’ve gotten really into gaming again with the next gen consoles and those paired with this TV have put me in gaming heaven.

    Thanks for the update, Archie. Really wish they would give us video options on Xbox like we had on PS4 Pro. To me, framerate is king and I'll gladly even drop down to 1080p if it's noticeably smoother.

    I don't even think the mechanic is necessary at all. I play zone analog with stride and I never pick contact or power.
    I've tried them before and never felt like I hit more homer's or struck out less.
    I dunno could just be me but it just seems unnecessary.
    Didn’t have much time to try anything after downloading the patch on my Series X. The one thing I tried which was a big eye sore for me was to play a game at Marlins Park and check the lighting. While not perfect, it does seem like it looks way better than it did before. That accompanied with Ridins rosters...I’m so ready to fire up franchise I can’t wait.
    On a side note for Series X users, there’s a new console update out now. It apparently makes Quick Resume even faster which is crazy. It also introduces a few new dynamic themes you can choose from. One of them is OG Xbox themed and is so damn cool. You can also download a new update for your Series X controller as well.

    The gameplay is locked at 60fps on series x during gameplay....cutscenes it can vary from 40 to 55fps but that is cutscenes and not gameplay
    If you have an issue with that then you have a huge issue with Madden and NBA 2k and fifa as they all have 60fps gameplay and 30fps cutscenes and replays
    it is definately a tad smoother on ps5 during the cutscenes but It is still there on ps5....I prefer to play 4k 120hz on series x which means I get input lag of just 5ms compared to ps5 where it does 4k 60hz only and it has input lag of 13.5 ms
    Combined with VRR and low input lag....it is easy choice for me

    In my experience I hit more hard line drives with power swing but more home runs with the regular swing.

    There has definitely been a time and place to use each swing in the past. They may not have been completely balanced, but contact swing had noticeably weaker contact in prior games. In this year's release it really does play like contact swing has no power drop-off. I know some of the more popular guys in the competitive crowd have all said to just contact swing only this year because of that.
    I haven't power swung too much this year to see if it has any changes, but it was typically only good to use on fastballs around the middle of the plate and it had a slower swing, all of which kept it pretty balanced. It would send balls flying off of the bat, but it had to be the pitch you wanted and needed to usually be a fastball.
    With contact swinging this year I'm hitting no doubt shots on balls completely out of the zone when I really shouldn't be.
    Not sure if mentioned but it seems to have gotten rid of the comments and scores about a sweep after one game in a series, usually for the losing team. Now I heard different comments when I was actually finishing off a sweep
    Did they update player portraits? Can’t believe how many are still cartoons, especially this late in the real season.
    And have they updated the missing managers?

    It's capped at 60 fps because of vsync, but that doesn't mean it can't dip below that and if people are seeing dips on foul balls then it's not truly "locked" at 60fps.
    The same is true with 20 on PS4 Pro. With the "Faster" setting, it's close to 60fps at times, but there's no way it's a steady 60fps, especially on foul balls, but I also see dips in practice swings.
    And yes, as a PC gamer, I do have a problem with 30fps, but we're very spoiled on PC, which unfortunately has also made me very sensitive to framerate dips on consoles.
    Quick update on the issue I was having with my created stadium where the stands weren’t appearing and fans were floating...
    It appears to be only the classic plaza level sections. I swapped those out for classic upper deck and stadium loads fully in tact.
    Hopefully they will still get that fixed but figured I’d share in case anyone is using these sections in their stadiums.

    Quick update on the issue I was having with my created stadium where the stands weren’t appearing and fans were floating...
    It appears to be only the classic plaza level sections. I swapped those out for classic upper deck and stadium loads fully in tact.
    Hopefully they will still get that fixed but figured I’d share in case anyone is using these sections in their stadiums.

    Well I hope we get a fix soon for the screen overlays and commentary based on the current series. It's annoying hearing and seeing the wrong stuff while playing in franchise.

    I’d be surprised if either ever get addressed. They don’t care about franchise, and between this and the ridiculous amount of day games, it’s honestly stopping me from even starting my franchise up because it destroys the immersion for me. If I hadn’t traded 20 in when I bought this one I honestly would have went back to playing it by now.

    After a few games post patch on Series X, it does seem to play a tad smoother but honestly not much. Not sure if there is anything they can really do at this point, or maybe it's not a priority. Wasn't seeing the choppy gameplay on hits down the line which was nice, but cutscenes still need some work. It's just jarring to go from smooth gameplay to stuttering cutscenes. Gameplay is at its worst when playing in the rain, although I haven't tested that yet since the patch dropped. Yesterday I was playing a game in the rain at Citi Field and I had to stop halfway through bc the framerate was so bad.

    Yeah for some reason they've never been able to get the cut scenes to run at a consistent locked 60fps. I was hoping with the power of these Next Gen consoles these frame rate hitches during cut scenes would be resolved but apparently not. It might seem minor to some but it does hurt immersion when frame rate is choppy.
    Glad to see they addressed the issue with the ball clipping completely through the bat. I couldn't even bring myself to play the game knowing this issue existed.
    Now if they could only fix the player clipping issues. Mainly with the 1st baseman's arm clipping completely through the base runner's body when he dives back to base on pick off attempts. Also with outfielders clipping completely through the ball boy's body when running after fly balls...

    It’s dirt cheap. Why not enjoy playing The Show, instead if being frustrated?

    If by floating fans you mean fans in seats but no concrete under them I'm seeing that when I try to save my stadium on classic level one. I'm probably doing something wrong since I haven't figure out the creator yet. When I click on add prop to add more sands the previously saved stands disappear.

    I noticed my issue was with certain classic sections but not all. I’d suggest switching whatever classic section you have to modern temporarily just to see if when you enter a game it fixes it, process of elimination basically.
