    Default PATCH INFO *MUST READ*

    OK guys, the 3rd patch for OOTP2007 is out.

    We are going to patch for the Monday, 10/15 sim. Keep in mind that Sunday Sims start this Sunday. We think this is a fair compromise, as some people may not read the board in time for Sunday. DO NOT UPGRADE UNTIL AFTER THE SUNDAY SIM. If you upgrade prior to downloading the Sunday sim file, it will not load.

    The problem: the small patch file will not be out until Tuesday (for PC users... the small patch is out for the Mac version). You have to download the full install to patch. It is a large download (71 MB). If you can't/don't want to download the full install for Monday's sim, you may send instructions for roster moves to me or Simms or Cubs via PM and we will take care of it for Monday's sim. All bets are off for Wednesday's sim.

    PC, full install (Mirror 1): http://ootpdevfiles.com/ootp/ootpb2007setup.exe
    PC, full install (Mirror 2): http://mirror1.ootpdevelopments.com/..._patch_203.exe

    Yes, I used the "force read" hack again. Sorry.

    PLEASE POST IN THIS THREAD when you have upgraded, AFTER SUNDAY'S SIM.

    I told him to use the "Force Read" hack....insisted on it, actually. So blame me.

    I will not be downloading the large file due to dialup, so I will be sending any lineup changes I might need to make. Will we be able to download the small patch through the game?

    No, it's a separate file entirely. You'll have to download it from the OOTP site once they release it.

    Maybe so, but until some people learn to read, it's necessary.

    We can either do this, or just post it and then have to answer a half a dozen "When are we upgrading?" posts followed by at least one complaint from an owner who didn't upgrade and got their export wiped out.

    As someone who's been too busy to read everything every day, I appreciate the hack.

    Why the urgency to patch? Why not just wait for the small file and patch for Wednesday's sim? It doesn't seem to me to that one sim is going to make a difference.

    FWIW, I plan on waiting until the patch file by itself is released, as I've always had piss-poor luck reinstalling eLicense games... If we're patching after today's sime, tomorrow will have to be a Shaw-sim or Simms-sim...

    And still no real answer to my question.

    I'm planning on waiting, too.

    Because the changes are important enough for league administration that we want to get it done ASAP.

    Upgraded. Version now reads 2.0.2.53. Let me know if that is wrong and something didn't work right.

    Didn't work right. It should say 2.0.3.67.

    Did you uninstall first? Technically you're supposed to (though I've done it both ways in the past), so try that and see if you get anything different.

    I have the same thing as shucker. I guess I'll have to uninstall and then reinstall. What a waste of fucking time.

    Sorry ... I know it's a pain, but I've already tested the refuse assignment override (it works!) and the HTML upload is taking less than half the time it has before now. Life is much much easier post-patch.

    (I did do a full uninstall, fwiw.)

    I did the uninstall and then reinstalled and got 2.0.3.67. So, not so bad, I guess.

    What if you have a solo league going that you don't want to ruin? Is the uninstall/reinstall the only way this would work?

    If i understood the set-up correctly when i read the stupid manual for 2006, that is the reason the league folders are in your own directory and not in the game directory. So I believe you should be fine, but if you want to make 100% sure, copy your solo game folder to a different directory and then put it back after you uninstall.

    I know i need to patch, but won't be until my other league is past the off-season which should be the end of the upcoming week.

    Barring an injury I would just need a minor change for Friday's sim.

    This is correct. Nothing that's in the subfolders of "My Documents/Sports Interactive/Data" gets touched. Any items in your saved_games folder are safe.

    Thanks. Will I need the registration ID to do this as well, or will it know that I've already purchased this? Sorry, I'm just not that savvy with this stuff.

    As long as you just uninstall, and don't unlicense (ie, via the Windows Control Panel eLicense app) then no, you won't have to re-enter your license info.
