Weird Glitch


Weird Glitch

In this game: https://www.pennantchase.com/lgBoxS..
Basically, the manager subbed in three players. Beckham at 3b (good!), Laird at 1b (uhh...) and Drew at c (NOOOO!!!). Two stolen bases in that inning. The better adjustment: Drew at 1b, Laird at c.

What's really weird? The next inning, the two players were switched: Drew at 1b, Laird at c.

Re: Weird Glitch

This is nothing new though, I made a post about the same exact thing about a week or so ago, see below



The box below illustrates something that really could use some tweaking. Starting Infield of Utley at 2B - Valentin at SS and Schmidt at 3B

Bottom of the 8th- Suzuki PH's for Utley and Frisch PH's for Valentin

so now at the end of the inning - Schmidt gets moved from 3B to SS, Frisch plays 3B and Ozzie Smith is placed at second.

This is absolute LUNACY - Schmidt should stay at 3B, his natural position, put Smith at SS ( his Natural Position) and Frisch at 2B his Natural position, The SIM is too dumb to figure this out? REALLY?

I know the SIM looks for a guy to come off the bench in the order that the starters were removed- but that is stupid, why not resolve it so that you have the best at their positions, play them if possible?

The SIM resolves these situations poorly and only AFTER the opposing team gets to bat against a defensive team with THREE guys out of position will it get corrected. It did not make a difference THIS time, but it has burned me before with an error costing me the game.

Is this something that can be improved?

Re: Re: Weird Glitch

I find it odd too.....you have a player pinch hit for a player, and the top or bottom of the inning you see that the player is now the defensive replacement as well for the player they pinch hit for, but they are playing out of position when you have a player still on the bench who can play the position. I've lost some games that I feel I would have won because of this. I suppose that there is the chance that the sim isn't smart enough to see that, but it's common sense to me that if you are pinch hitting for a Shortstop at the end of the game that a shortstop or infielder would go play the position defensively and not the Catcher who was pinch hitting for the Shortstop.

Re: Weird Glitch

This is a different issue than SCM noted, but they are both related to the same challenge - more than one PH/PR in the same inning.

In the scenario SCM outlined, the issue is with the swap logic - Frisch couldn't be swapped over to 2B because Ichiro was occupying it as a pinch-hitter, and Ichiro could not get swapped to an IF position. The solution is to allow a PH to swap with another PH regardless of position and then replace any PH who is not at a valid position.

Rogue's issue is different, but more simple - Laird got subbed in at 1B because the CPU went down the lineup, which meant there was no C to sub for Drew. The swap logic then fixes it the next inning.

The first one is a little more complex, but both can be fixed. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again for the detailed issues, it helps to figure out exactly what logic needs to be added.

Re: Re: Weird Glitch

New logic on display in this game:

Both Scioscia and Moseby PH in same inning. First, Moseby swaps with Scioscia to take Van Slyke's OF spot, then Steinbach who can play 3B swaps with Scioscia.

Keep an eye on this and let me know if it's working or if you catch any glitch.

Re: Weird Glitch

It just worked perfectly in a game one of my teams was in Guy- nice Job!
