  1. Game is now available on Steam, $29.99. Think that's going to be my platform of choice since I'll be able to play with both the XBone and PS4 playerbases. Plus it apparently runs on a toaster so even my aging PC should be fine.
    Played a few innings, have to say I'm a little disappointed in the performance, at least on my low end work PC.  It's still a fun game, but it definitely seems to slow down quite a bit when the ball is in play.  Going to bring my controller in later to give it another shot, the reticle really struggles to keep up with my mouse.
    Anyone else playing with a mediocre PC, and if so do you have any suggestions on optimizing?  I hate to think about lowering the resolution.
    Today's the day! I played one quick 5 inning game last night on 30 Ego and it was pretty fun! I really love the pace of play it's so quick. But today before work I'm going to get to making my league of teams. I'm super excited!!

    I’ll be that guy: what are you running for a GPU? What resolution do you have the game running at right now? What FPS are you seeing at various times? Without more information “slow down” doesn’t mean anything—it has to be defined.
    Fair questions, and I'm not 100% sure about the GPU.  It's a relatively new Dell Optiplex 7020, obviously not a gaming console, which is why I don't even try to play AAA titles or anything like that.  Honestly the only other game I own on Steam is Fire Pro World, but it's always run flawlessly, even with mods galore installed and 8 men in the ring at once.  This game just doesn't strike me as needing a ton of horsepower, I even saw where bcruise mentioned above that it "apparently runs on a toaster oven".
    I run the game at 1920 x 1080 resolution, and I'm guessing my FPS usually ranges from 15 to 30, maybe lower in some instances.  I'm anxious to try playing with a controller, but the reticle lags big time when I move it around with my mouse.  Seems like the frame rates dip pretty consistently any time the ball is put into play.  I'm a PC noob in terms of gaming, just want something to play on my lunch breaks and had such good luck with FPW that I thought this game would fare equally well.

    Looking at the specs on that thing, GPU is probably the bottleneck, especially if it's a work PC (as those generally have no reason to have a powerful GPU). 3.7 Ghz processor is MUCH faster than my i7 quadcore 2.8 Ghz, but my Radeon HD 7870 GPU lets me run the game just fine. If you're on integrated graphics you're usually going to have a rough time running games (though I can see why Fire Pro would be able to run on even that).
    Game is definitely not graphics-intensive - you're right about that. But I'd say it is a step above Fire Pro in that department. As the post above me said, try contacting the devs and see if there's anything they can help you with - they're an indie so it should be a more personal experience than dealing with EA or Sony.
    I appreciate the info guys, and also I apologize for what I'm sure seemed like just uninformed complaining in my earlier post.  I'm more just disappointed in my CPU set up than anything else, been looking forward to this game for a few months and it's a bummer to see it struggle so badly.  Even with my PS4 controller the reticle just seems laggy as hell and the game stutters pretty badly on fly balls, etc.
    I'll definitely check with the devs, and worst case scenario, at least Steam is cool about refunds. Thanks again!

    Integrated graphics instead of a dedicated GPU is going to be a problem for many current 3D games. Still, I would turn down the in-game resolution and any other graphical settings as far as they go and see what you have then. Maybe it’s something you can live with, maybe not, but it’s worth a shot.
    Gotta say, I’m a little disappointed that the coaches and trainers are gone. The first version was poorly implemented, but I liked the ability to improve my guys. Often it forced you to choose between big bonuses in one stat but minuses in another, and I liked those decisions.
    Not sure I dig the new art style, either, but it doesn’t bug me.
    Characters seem floaty, batted ball physics also seem a little odd compared to last game, but it’s possible I’m imagining things.
    Still plays a fun game of arcade baseball though!
    Load times are poop on Xbox One.
    I am still trying to decide, if I make a custom team, which one to make?

    • Fictional Teams from Movies.
    • Historic players from my favorite team.
    • Childhood friends
    • TV Shows (I thought about Firefly but was not sure there were enough regular characters for a full team - Maybe a Joss Wheden TV show theme)

    So many choices. Childhood friends with a name based off our Neighborhood or grade school is the one I am leaning towards.
    Is there a guideline when creating players for a team on total number of points. I assume you could set everything to 99 if you wanted but that is boring. Do the standard players have like a total number of points that are distributed?

    I'm going with a mishmash of characters from baseball movies, past baseball games, and real players from the past/present.
    My team will be called the American Dreams (from Baseball Stars).
    So far I've created these players...
    Doctor K (Dwight Gooden)
    Billy Wags (Billy Wagner)
    Johnny Hardhat (John Olerud)
    Mikie Pizzaman (Mike Piazza)
    Boston Norkus (Norkus from the Boston team in the old Bases Loaded game)
    ...with plans to create these players next...
    Ricky Vaughn
    Pedro Cerrano
    Jack Parkman
    Billy Chapel
    Roy Hobbs
    Carlos Beltran
    Roger McDowell
    Jesse Orosco
    Ichiro
    ...and eventually filling the roster with these same types.
    So far I've created an all female team called the Widows and I'm using a random name generator with names from all over the world, unless I see a pre made name I like of course. I'm working on a team now called the Dragons and they will be comprised of anime style names. My plan is to create a league of 8 teams and go from there.

    ^ Speaking of which, the names they have for this game are just epic. I burst out laughing at like 70% of them.
    Yes!!! One of the women on my Widows team is named Crush Gonzalez and I love it!

    Where do you see them doing them? Photos? Videos?
    I looked on YouTube, but apparently am not filtering my search the right way.

    Go view the Super Mega baseball reddit. I have seen a lot of them shows there and they are all pretty great for do it yourself uniforms.
