Use the OOTP17 demo?

You can use the demo version for OOTP 17 to import your OOTP 16 game into the OOTP17 format, and then import that file into OOTP18

You can use the demo of OOTP 17 to import, no need to buy it.

you just need to download a demo version of 17 (it's free). import your 16 game to that. then import that to 18.
here's a link to the demo page. it's located at the bottom of the page. good luck.

Spring Training Pages
During Spring Training, special statistics and standings pages are available in the League menu. There will also be a special link on the Manager Homescreen as well. This option brings you to a series of four tabs that display Spring Training data, that behave similarly to their regular-season counterparts.
I can't seem to find this link in my manager home screen, I was in the following years ST period.

You should be able to download the ootp17 demo, load your save into it, save it again then load it into 18


Edit: Missed it was already answered about 15 times! Must refresh occasionally!

Just dipping in now, have to agree how sharp and clear the skin is.



I've spent the weekend thinking which MLB team to take on and then on a whim at start up added all leagues and took over the independent New Britain Bees instead.

Yankees Ratings

I haven't had the time to go through all the teams yet, but the Yankees prospect ratings are not very accurate. For instance, a consensus top 10 Yankee prospect like Albert Abreu has .5 potential. Also, when you look at the team's top prospects it doesn't look much like the real lists released by Baseball America or MLB.com. Some of their top prospects aren't even on there, and no name prospects are listed in the top 5

In years past, serial codes could be used twice for log-ins on multiple computers. Is this the case again this year?

Well, thanks for the responses.

I did download 17, but when I open it I am provided with a choice: purchase or enter serial number.

I went to game settings in demo, and attempted restore from backup. But there is nothing allowing me to import from 16 into the 17 demo, that I can see. The demo allows me to open saved folders, so I copied the saved folder from 16 to 17, but I can't load anything saved into the demo.


EDIT

or wait... I guess i just need the 17 saved folder... will try ..

We have it on task this week to do some more work with cleaning up the prospect lists. Hopefully the main release on Friday will be better (although you may need to start a new game to see the results).

Love the challenge mode.
I think injuries may need to be lowered though.
I started new season in 1901, by the start of the regular season, I already had 4 position players injured for a minimum of 3 months.
You only start with 22 players. ( I am playing as the Pirates)
When I looked at the other teams they also had multiple players injured.
At this pace, some team is going to run out of players, or have to field non position players.

Just realized that I did not change the skin to dark like I always do... because the default skin looks fantastic this year!

Been off for a couple of years but getting back into it. Download done and loaded up the game, exciting and terrifying all wrapped up in one.

Limited Scout Options

There are no good options for available scouts. The very few good scouts that are available are not interested in signing with my team, leaving only poor scouts for me to hire. Can you add a few good scouts so I don't have to go a full season with a bad scout?
