Re: Major League Baseball 2K9 Official Patch 2 Available, Impressions Here (360 Only)

I'm playing default all star with just one tweak on the CPU strike efficiency slider. I had a great game last night as the Yankees vs Orioles. Threw a complete game with CC and gave up 1 run on 12 hits which is a tad high but got 10k's with 5 of them looking. On the offensive side I drew two walks and hit 3 homers which is the first time I've hit more than 1 in a game. Two were with Tex from each side of the plate, left handed was crushed to right and the right handed HR was hit to right center. The other hr was from Nady.

I thought the CPU was still hitting a few too many first pitches but it may be that I was off with the gestures because I started dominating in the 2nd half of the game. While I had 10 K with CC I didn't get the first strikeout till the 4th inning.

I just rented the game last night and played two full 9 inning games, and it ran seemless. Evidently the patches fixed a lot of bugs. The only bug that I noticed was on an appeal for a check swing, the 3rd base ump was facing the outfield. I can deal with that. I'm a baseball purist so I'm very picky, but I really enjoyed the game last night. I lost to Beckett and the Sox 6-3 and he was throwing smoke. My major problem with the game is that the player models look like cartoons. They are too brightly colored. The Show images I've seen look like they get the shadowing and texture perfectly.

Are you able to change the batting cam to more of a broadcast view (from behind the pitcher)?

Probably a silly question, but it's been a couple of years since I played MLB2K series.

Thanks.

Go to the Camera Settings
Choose the Pitcher View
Change the setting to get what you like.

I just found a new set that mimics the NESN broadcast, and from the top to bottom I think it is:

Zoom-3
Position-2
Height-6

any way, the numbers from top to bottom are 3,2,6

That is very close to what NESN uses, and you can really see the break of the curveballs, and the view looks just like it does on TV
