You will still hit homers but they aren't the monster wind blown ones. For years, I turned wind off in the show. Probably before the show was the show.

Thanks for the compliment. I'd love to see more doubles and manufacture more runs. Glad you're having good results with it, I still love this game. Keep having fun.

MEANWHILE, I've encountered numerous times where I've had "Good" and "Fly Ball" along with the ball in the middle of the PCI and the colour of said PCI is green and I've either hit only measly fly balls or ground outs. Whenever I do hit home runs, I'm either late or Just Late.

I use Pure Analog hitting btw. The amount of HR's is a tad bit much, especially when I put my pitches in an area where I more than likely would get a grounder or a pop up; not a 400 foot bomb over Jay Bruce.

I think The Show stopped showing the PCI placement of the opponent a couple years ago (perhaps to make it harder to guess what the opponent is looking for), so what you are seeing is actually not the true location of the PCI. I think it always stays at center for the opponent in online games.

It's true the wind can act both ways, to convert some fly outs to HRs and some HRs to fly outs, but I think it doesn't quite "even out" because in typical situations there are significantly more fly balls hit within the outfield than the ones go over the fence (simply harder to hit further).

Even if the wind blows in or out 50% of the time, there are more fly outs to be pushed over the fence than HRs that pushed into fly outs. That's why in the game turning off the wind by the slider overall tends to deflate the number of HRs I think.

Maybe that could be the case but on different occasions, I've seen it moved elsewhere and not just centered in the strike zone, so that has me thinking a little.

So I thought this too, and I'm 99% it has been like this. But I did notice in my game today in DD the other dudes pci has moved on some of the swings. Now it could just be random placement idk.

Was it only up and down movement? I think it can move slightly for that based on timing (early = high, late = low) but I haven't seen it move left or right.

Yeah it was up and down.
