Re: Major League Baseball 2K9 Official Patch 2 Available, Impressions Here (PS3 Only)

For those still having trouble with the OF glitch. To aleviate this let your AI do the work for you. Do not touch the controls. On high fly balls the AI will either completely settle under it and make the catch, or sometimes they run close to the landing spot and stop short of it, in this instance you have to finish the rest and move the OFer under the fly ballto finish the play. It takes practice but this has worked very well for me. I have not had balls go over my head or hit me in the head or anything silly like that.

On balls you have to come in to charge, again, let the AI go after it for you.

The problem is still on line drives where you have to go to your left or right, in these cases youj ust have to hope for the best and hope your OFer either makes the catch or if he doesnt let, hope the ball does not get behind him.

Letting the AI do the work for me has helped this problem a great deal, unfortunately there are still going to be instances where a ball taht should be caught will drop in and it will potentially wreck your game. i guess that is something you have to decide if you want to put up with. Maybe with some more complaining 2K will release another patch for this

Post Patch im really starting to like this game. I found a good set of sliders to tone down the AI hitting. Im getting called 3 strike outs and what I like most is i am getting TONS of foul balls by both myself and teh AI. I had a pretty cool pitching duel with Bengie Molina, with 2 strikes he fouled off 5 pitches.

mY OTHER minor gripe with the game is the pitchers hit the ball a little too much. But I guess i have tos tart paying more attention when they are up

This game is SO CLOSE to being awesome you can smell it. Hopefully next year.

Can someone please confirm that the flyball issue (not the slowdown, but where the ball would just go over the players' heads) has been completely or partially resolved? This was the game-killer for me.

I had a John Maine no-hitter (in the 6th) broken up by one of these things.

Thanks...can't wait to get home and load it up!

Though the game is playing much better, I am still disappointed that didn't add descriptions of the Sliders for this game. It is getting frustrating trying to create sliders for the community but having no idea WTF the sliders really due & how they interact with each other.

So has everyone decided to start fresh regarding their sliders?

Is default All-Star difficulty (for example) actually playable now? Or should we still use the sliders that everyone has been tweeking for the past month or so?

All the NEW Sliders interact with each other & not knowing how they effect each other is what's frustrating:

Inside Edge Influence
Pitcher Handedness
Batter Success

Game plays much smoother. On default sliders, I had the CPU take a bunch of strikes, had 2 called 3rd strikeouts.

Seems to be little if no slowdown on flyball outs.

Game just feels much better overall, and I had fun playing it pre-patch. Now to start my franchise.
