Sounds good. I'm not 100% sure what that means in terms of moves I might try and make. I've been making offers to fill up a ton of vacant management/coaching slots at all levels...will that not show up later? Should I hold off?

If you already downloaded the league file and were making moves in the game...that's not your created GM. That's the old user that used to run the team.
Had to delete him and create your own user, which won't be available in the game until I re-upload the league file.

Oh. It lists me by my name as an inexperienced manager, but I don't know what that means. Best if I hold off on anything until tomorrow?

Mistakes were made...oh well. Familiarization with the program is what matters most.

Make sure you export your team for any changes to propagate to the league.

It's under File > Online league > Export your team via FTP

The Jays, White Sox, Nats, Phillies, Reds, World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates, Rockies and Pads are all still available.

The league file is updating right now. Give it 10-15 minutes and you should be good. (The export reader page shows the latest update of the league file. If the league file is currently updating or broke during update, it displays that status in red instead of green....along with the most recent update times of every team's latest export, with those times being green if they are more recent than the league file -- little php script I wrote up so people know if they updated or not).

Not because we've had anything devious happen, but I recommend people put a password on their GM account, just to keep things locked up.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll bookmark the page and keep an eye on it. I had created a password for my spot, but just got rid of it until I get the latest version.

Just so I understand the mechanics here a bit, I am free to drop players/staff to my liking, and submit job offers to candidates. After that, I update my latest export file and wait for you to advance the mechanics for the entire league? Is that how competing biddings work?

Yep. Probably won't be advancing days for another day or two, as we still have some new members trickling in.

But yea - do any changes to your team. Then export your team file. If you fail to do so, when the league file gets updated, your changes won't be there.

Perfect, I'll work it today and tomorrow. I'm guessing it's just a result of the team not having a human manager, but I'm missing ~20 or so coaching/training positions across all club levels.

I noticed you Gaffers picked the 2015 World Series champs apart, too! There's literally no pieces around from the 2016 opening day roster, unless you count Yordano Ventura (who apparently sucks now). Time for a complete rebuild!

There has been 2-3 GMs of the Royals since we started.

http://gobl.obleague.com/league-file-instructions/

Code:

Go into the saved_games folder and PASTE the folder
Now RENAME the folder to: gobl_ootp.lg
Make sure you have the gobl_ootp.lg folder in your OOTP saved games directory. If so, you should be able to launch OOTP 17, click load game and see gobl_ootp listed there.

I'm struggling to see what they got in return, LOL. Worst bullpen in the league. Pretty awful starting pitcher lineup. Below average in basically every field position.

A couple of decent prospects in AA and AAA, so there is that. And it looks like I'm lined up for the first pick, to help kick start the rebuilding process. How does the draft work in here? Does the game create a bunch of fictional prospects after we advance a bit?

Yeah, we're probably at that point since we've had 4 or 5 first year player drafts

It's been on the decline, but I'm still interested. Let's talk! (Cubs)

I'm also listening on Baez for anyone who's interested. 40 HR power from 2B/SS is tough to find.

We will probably get the league moving again on Monday. Will start with 3 day sims through arbitration so people can get used to the game and our pace.

If you are still having problems getting the league running inside OOTP 17, please let me know where it's breaking down for you.

Alright. Couple people having issues exporting their team file. I went ahead and simmed 1 day. Would like everyone to verify that they can get this update and export their team file.

Current in-game date is now: Nov 8th, 2019


If you cannot successfully export, I repackaged the settings zip. Delete everything in your settings folder, located in a similar path to: C:\Documents\Out of the Park Developments\OOTP Baseball 17\saved_games\gobl_ootp.lg\settings\
Download and extract the following into your gobl league settings folder.

http://gobl.obleague.com/lg/league/gobl_settings.zip - Includes 3 files. accountsdata_commish.dat, accountsdata_gms.dat, db.cfg. That's all that should be in that settings folder now. Re launch OOTP 17 and please try again, let me know.
Reminder, and update was recently released. You MUST have the patch for this to work.

I've given up fantasy too. No comparison on time commitment. You only have one team to worry about, and can set the AI to take care of however much or little you want.

It really is 5 or10 minutes a day max.

I've learned soooooooo much more about the game doing this for a year than I ever did playing fantasy.

Rule 5 picks, options, playoff rosters, weighing salary and contract years. I have no doubt at all this has made me a much smarter fan and has increased my enjoyment of the game immensely.

Don't let the time commitment thing dissuade you. It really isn't significant, unless you really want to sink hours into it.

Give it a think!!!

Awesome, hopefully this works for eznark as well.
If you guys recall, early in our first season, GOBL ran a podcast. We talked about doing more, but never got around to it. We're hoping to bring this back as a regular thing - with Eznark hosting, as I'm still working up my general baseball knowledge.

If you want an idea of what that podcast was like, have a throwback listen to some of the early things that happened in season one of GOBL. https://soundcloud.com/thatguyfern/g...cast-episode-1

Like 7 teams open, people are free to join whenever so long as a team is available. We will start simming into the 2020 season tomorrow though.

My bench coach and hitting coach are trash, but I'm not dumping either of them with 2+ years of money on the books. I had so many other vacant positions to fill anyway. I'm not sure if there were a ton of expiring contracts, or if the CPU just didn't prioritize filling management roles, but I had more than a dozen open jobs across my organization. Ridiculous.

I just have to keep reminding myself that my current team is hot garbage, and it will take 4-5 years to rebuild. Apparently, back in 2017 the team signed Carlos Santana to a 5 year, $87 million deal. Nothing says winner more than signing a 21 rated overall (and potential!) first baseman for $17.4M per year!


Also, my pitching sucks! :)

Remember, today will be our first real sim in OOTP17. A short 3 day sim, just want to get people used to moving along and make sure everything is working.
You should be working with arbitration and making decisions on team options at this point, but will still have all these things available for a couple sims, so don't worry if you're not in the game yet.

Blue Jays owner will be added with this sim.

Notes: Continue to get used to the game and work out your arbitration players, who you want to keep, and team staffing.

Made a mistake of not adding the new Blue Jays manager. Reupdating, so you won't be able to download the league file for a couple more minutes.
This leaves the following 7 teams available: White Sox, Nationals, Phillies, Reds, Pirates, Rockies, Padres
