Patch Updates for Current Game Releases

 

 

Strat-O-Matic Baseball 2017

 
An update patch is available for Baseball 2017, all users should download and install the Version 2017g update patch immediately.

The 2017g Update Patch corrects the follwing issues:
 
1) Daily Draft Leagues were experiencing ID-193 Crashes.

2) Manual Entry for play results had a problem where if the secondary positions were not entered it would show weird results on the scoresheet.  That has been corrected.  Additionally, the two optional secondary fielding positions are now auto filled with "no fielder" so that you don't need to make a selection for these fields in order to proceed.  Note that the game engine requires you to enter a primary fielder for outs.

3) 1872 - The on-base percentages and slugging averages on the cards were transposed.

4) 2016 - Alcides Escobar (KCA) had an injury on his card which has been removed.

5) Loc Files - The following missing ballpark .LOC files have been included (note: these were also separately distributed with the V2017-LOC patch):
BP063 (day and night) - Atlanta
BP069 (day) - Detroit
BP071 (night) - Houston
BP075 (night) - Pittsburgh
BP078 (day and night) - San Diego
BP091 (day and night) - St. Louis
BP092 (day and night) - New York (NL)
BP095 (night) - Fort Bragg (one game for Atlanta)

The 2016d patch update addresses the following issues:

- During faceoffs short-handed teams sometimes had an extra player on the ice which caused the wrong faceoff chart to be used.  When this happened the short-handed actions (such as skating and icing) were not being shown.

- The prompt to verify taking a timeout had a typo which as been fixed.  It now asks "Are you sure you want to take your timeout now?"

- A new link from the Help menu has been added to directly acccess the New Help File from within the program.  In addition clicking the Help button during the game will bring up the new help file.

The 2016F patch update addresses the following issues:

- Extra Points were being attempted from the Pro distance (15-yard line) instead of the college distance (3-yard line).
- The game would sometimes crash following a restore of a saved game when using the "Consider Flat Pass as Runs" option
- On some machines the Formation selection for Punt Defense was not allowing mouse entry for both "Punt Block" and "Punt Return" so the keyboard was needed to change the selection.  Note that you may need to adjust your monitor's DPI if this fix does not work for you.
