    Looking forward to tomorrow. Are you playing on 1080p? I've seen a few videos of the retail version and it looks beautiful. :mrgreen:

    I was playing 1080P and it skips a little. Definitely better at 720P. The difference is negligeble.

    i heard over at os it depends on ur tv if it better on 1080p and 720p. i forgot that the ps3 doesnt choose the best version for the games so now i have to manually check one only when i play game to get the true feel so today isee it only in 1080p and see how it goes.

    Sorry guys. I will start a sign up thread very soon. I've been drafting guys in the OTP league. Once completed there will be a sign up thread if you guys are still interested. Thanks.

    I'm putting the league on hold until Sony fixes the stability online. I haven't played online yet, but my understanding is that there are some issues. I would like to know the guys that haven't had any issues. Once I get a head count we can start a small league. A PM was sent out to those that were interested earlier this week. I received most but there were a couple that bowed out due to connection issues.

    I just finished my first game online. Right now I have mix feelings. Im not sure if it was his connection or just crappy servers. The pitching was set to meter (yuck). At times I couldn't see the bars going up or down. Not good. I would like to play one of you to do more testing.

    I haven't played a single game online yet, as I'd much rather play RTTS or the CPU then some average joe I don't know online. If anybody wants to, you'll just have to let me know how I send out invites or get mic to work or what not. Since I haven't played a single PS3 game online yet, I really don't know how any of it works.

    As for the pitching, I love the meter for offline but I also pretty much suck at the timing part of it. For online I think classic pitching would be the better option of the two. That way it comes down more to the pitchers rating then how well you can time pressing the button.

    The game actually says on a few different screens that its optimized for 720p.

    I didn't notice a difference between the 2 tho.

    As far as I know the online is still hit or miss. I'm waiting to see if they fix the online issues. League support is built into the game. I was going to create a league using their league support.

    what I've kind of noticed from playing the last month or so...

    is that, Veteran, the pitch speed is real slow, and real easy to hit.

    but you go up one level to All Star and it's much faster and much harder to hit.

    I would think an in between level would have been the best.



    I also thought of something that would need some testing...play on Hall of Fame...but no balls...turn the all strikes option on.


    IDK how well it would work...I just think Veteran is too easy and All Star might be to hard.


    But with the lag, everything is hard, so hopefully the lag subsides.

    I would lower the speed pitch slider if you're having a hard time hitting.
