Another bump to the first page.

Hopefully a moderator will make a sticky of this thread.

Sorry to keep bumping it, but it would be very helpful to get your feedback on typos and errors in the PBP and News.

Hundreds of eyes are better than just two, four or six.

Yeah, I don't see any more than the few I fixed. The one above was fixed already. About every 10-12 games is about right for the problem to show up.

Q: How do I turn on pbp debug in OOTP9?

Ian
Anyone who want to help us proof the PBP and News should use the debug mode. You will be able to give us the exact category and object (new story or PBP lines}. This make it very easy to locate the specific object. Otherwise we just have to read all of the objects in a category. This can be very time-consuming as the number of objects are usually 50-200 in a category.

Go to the Start Menu.
Select Run.
Insert %appdata%
In Application Date select OOTP Developments.
Select OOTP Baseball 9.
Select config.
Select app file.
Select Notepad.
Go down the line here it says: add_debug_info_to_in_game_commentary and change the 0 (zero) to 1.
Change the 0 below the ninth line to 1.

You are supposed to be able to set this in the Game Setup Screen Preference, but I have never been able to get it to work that way. It lets you change the debug mode, but when you close everything out and click OK, it never applies the change. When you go back in to look to see the changes are still there, the 1 is back to 0.

I know the above instructions works.

Using the Preferences screen to access the config file DOES work. Once you make the changes in the app file, you save them, and close the file. Then be sure NOT to click OK. Click Cancel instead. Then exit and restart OOTP9.

This certainly would be far easier than going to the config file the way I said.

pstrickert, I don't doubt that you are right. But what is the logic behind selecting Cancel instead of OK?

It seems to this computer-illiterate that "Cancel" would "cancel the changes".

Post Rookie League Coach Report typo

I found a typo problem in a rookie league game I was playing in. When I pulled up a coach report, all of the coach reports had the same problem on the bottom column under "Scouting Ratings"; you can read it.

Thanks for helping with the proofing.

Exclamation Pitching Clinic ???????

Not sure if you feel that this is wrong but, I do. If a pitcher gives up 14 hits in one game, there is no way that he was magnificent and by no means did he put on a pitching clinic. Just my 2 cents!!!

I'll report the DL situation, Bottom of the Sixth.

Thanks for posting it.

You are right about the "magnificent" story. He struck out 19, but gave up 14 hits. Not too magnificent.

This is inherent in the system when you write in the dark and use a "fill in the blank" text system. Occasionally this happens. In real life a pitcher would not give up 14 hits and strike out 19. It just doesn't make sense. A manager wouldn't leave him in that long, if he gave up 14 hits. But the only solution is to remove the adjectives like "sensational, fantastic, magnificent" etc. This would make the shutout stories a little too bland IMO.

We just have to live with "egg on our faces" sometimes... at least in OOTPB.

I have tried to tone down the categories where things like this can happen. Rookie of the Year is one I toned down and removed the "great" adjectives.

Eugene Church,

Thanks for quick responses.

By the way, that pitcher, I believe, was in a 19 inning game!!!

Well, that puts a little less "egg on my face".

I could live with 14 hits in 19 innings.

That is realistic.
