That's really weird. There's absolutely nothing special about game 40 or any other point in the season that should cause that sort of thing to happen when it wasn't happening before. The only thing that would be changing is how much space the game is taking on disk, as the longer you go the larger it gets.


Could it have to do with the draft pool? this happens around that time of the season

Which is part of why I asked the question about file path above.

Is OOTP19 installed to the save directory on your system as you installed the previous versions of the game?

Or has that changed?

Do you still have an older version of the game installed? If so, if you do the same with it, is the directory it's saving to something like (C:\Users\Administrator.tom-PC\Documents\Out of the Park Developments\OOTP Baseball 18\saved_games) or is it different?

Did you get previous versions of OOTP on Steam as well, or were they the standalone versions?

I bought OOTP17 and OOTP18 definitely through Steam, I am not sure about 16 and 9 anymore. I may have bought them directly, but I played them through Steam.


I did not change anything when downloading the game trough Steam. So it should be on the same place like former versions.


When I download the latest version I always delete former versions. They are still available on Steam

Ok, I'd like to try something with you.

Start the game and on the very first screen click on Settings. Now click on the Expert tab. At the top, click Select to the right of Custom Data Path and choose a new data path there.

Make it as simple as possible.

C:\OOTP 20

would be perfect.

After you do this, exit the game.

The restart and start a new save (you won't be able to load any of the old saves for now, since they'll be in a different directory).

Play that save up to the point where you've had issues on other saves. Then let me know if you run into the same issues at around the same spot now, or not.

I guess anything is possible. I really doubt it though.

If the saves are being corrupted, that's always going to be coming from an external source somewhere, not from anything happening in-game itself (unless you were to for instance ctrl+alt+delete the game right when it was in the middle of saving).

OK. I will play in GM mode to get pretty fast there

Lukas, I played in GM and Manager mode. And I hit autoplay. Right before draft day I saved and exited - no freeze!

If this works the same when playing each game, then I may call you a genius.

Ok, that's really good news! Let's hope that does it!

Keep me updated if you do run into any issues.

Unfortunately the same mistake occurred again. I saved the game after 27 games into the season: my laptop froze, I had to restart. When I started OOTP again and try to continue and load the game the same error messages as before appeared.


So obviously your advice only works in autoplay mode, not in play-by-play mode.

EDIT: what I forgot to write and happend every time when restarting OOTP after the computer being frozen: Steam shows that OOTP19 is not installed. I have to click "install" - in fact all the files are there, so Steam checks the existing files and after a few seconds the message "game is installed now" shows up.



I played in 2D mode and made one change to the autoplay mode: I changed the ratings to the 1-20 system instead of the 20-80, I also set the settings so that ratings and potential over 20 would be shown.

In my 4th year with OOTP. I too have had several crashes, plus even more "not responding" over the years. That was until this year. I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (upgrade, not a clean install). This year no crashes and no "not responding". I have also found in years prior to this, OOTP is not friendly with other programs open at same time. Probably nothing to do with anything, but I thought I would throw that out there. Also, if you are hesitant about upgrading to W10, let me say best thing I've done for my pc. Thanks.

I am playing in an online league and when I go to view another teams player list my game crashes every single time. Has never happened prior to today. Have rebooted computer, updated computer, and restarted game several times to no avail. Playing on a MAC.

I'm crashing each time I try to continue playing my historic league using OOTP19.

I'm far from a PC expert. All I know is that I'm using Windows 7. Updates are current. I have DirectX 11.1. I tried steps 7 and 8 of the initial troubleshooting post without relief. I don't use 3d. I have no firewall nor anti-virus screwing things up. I have no idea what a white list is. I've restarted. I've reinstalled.

This is a league in its 10th season. I play historical mode, with random players entering each season. I uninstalled from a previous PC and installed on this one after the same thing happened on it, at about the same place in my replay.

Windows 7
NOT Steam
OOTP 19 - I believe it's the latest setup

I honestly don't know what to do next.

Edit: I spent the morning updating to Windows 10. Launched OOTP - opened my season, tried to play the day. The game, once again, crashed. I just wonder if anyone's even still reading this thread???
