Just to mention that an update to the app went out this afternoon on Android and is in review with Apple. It contains the first pack of 3 expansions for those who would like to change up the game a little bit.

Let me know if you have any problems with the update. This as been one of the most challenging releases in my 20+ year career as a programmer. Lots of new stuff, lots of somewhat crazy stuff.

Next up will be a pumping up of the CPU Stengel AI to have a Easy and Medium skill level. He's going to make more intelligent purchase/demotion decisions and order his offensive cards a little bit better.

And after that, the Coaches and Rally Cap expansions will go in and will be available separately, rather than bundled together like these three.

Great work and my most played app of 2016. Keep the improvements and expansions coming. THANK YOU!

Thanks, all the expansions are an immediate buy for me.

What do the green checkmarks mean?

Yes thanks so much. Love this app so much. I play it on the iPad. On iPhone 6+ think the scrolling hurts my eyes but I'm very stoked for these expansions which are namely???

Your support means a lot to me. It's been quite an adventure trying to do this full-time.

The green check marks mean that the Immediate Action on the card is useful.

Some of the new cards have complex immediate actions that require you to dive into your In Play discards to see what cards you've already played. The green checkmark is there as a convenience so you don't have to do that as often.

The expansions are Hitters, Magna Gloves and Pitchers. There's basically 10 new Robots, 10 new Cyborgs and 10 new Naturals with a bunch of new Immediate action types. The new Robots, in particular, are a lot of fun.

Some of you will probably disagree with me here, but in retrospect I think that coding this for phone screens under 6" or so was probably a mistake. I'm beginning to prepare for my next big project and I'm really wrestling with the question as to whether I'll do phones for that one.

I've completely destroyed my eyesight in the past two weeks spending hours and hours testing on a 4" screen. I'm going to take it easy for the next few days and hopefully the eyes will recover.

That said, making it work on phones did wake up the Android side of things and there are lots of sales coming from there now, while it was very quiet when it was tablet only.

May I ask whether your next project is also a board game?

There's no update available for me yet in the AppStore, so I assume I can't buy the expansion yet? At least I can't find anywhere to buy it in the app.

Apple is reviewing the update. With Android, I'm in charge.

It most definitely is. That is the niche that I chose for this business idea. It's another fairly new game that came out a little after Baseball Highlights.

Important note, if you want the update you have to explicitly go into Google Play to get it even if you have auto-update on. The change in permissions to allow in game purchases requires this.

Ah, OK, thanks, that explains it.

Sounds good. I'm looking forward to hearing what game it is, once you're ready to announce it.

Are you going to announce it (or at least a pointer to it) in a Baseball Highlights thread so we don't miss it?

I'm thrilled Peter! Can't wait for the update and I'll happily fork over some cash for the expansion cards. Keep 'em coming!

Of course. If it happens I won't be able to go public about it for about a year though. It really does take that long to do one of these things.

Just got the notice from the post office that my physical copy of the other game just arrived. It was out of print for quite a while.

On my morning jog I was daydreaming about a campaign mode in Baseball Highlights where you play a 30-40 game season and some teams are actually much weaker/stronger than others. You get a new free agent at the end of every 3 game series - winners get to choose before losers with no refresh of the free agent table after picks. Any interest in this sort of thing?

=======================

Just got a notice from Apple that they are reviewing the patch. If they don't reject it, that means it should be available later this afternoon.

Amazon has (or had...I'm not sure if they've changed them) some policies which are not friendly to small developers so I'm afraid not right now. I may look into it again at some later date.

Namely, they can change the price of the app without my permission. It's a holdover from the way they run their bookselling business. Not a big deal if you're a big studio distributing a free app, but it could be deadly to me.

=================

Haven't heard anything from Apple yet. Normally the review process takes about 5 hours once they tell you that they've started, but it looks like the person doing it is saving it for tomorrow.

Think you should name them in the Addon section. I spent quite amount of time trying to figure out the other two besides Magna.
