Just put up a quick poll.. only one option so if you don't have the game don't do the poll, you can still post though. I've been playing this for a while now, and I'm itching to get a tourney or league started. Let me know also if you'd be int'd and if you have a problem using swingstick ONLY.
I'm just trying to get a quick tally of who owns this.

i cant use the swing stick since i have a sxrd with slight lag. game mode makes pitching and classic mode better but with swing stick almost every hit goes to right field. i tried it on a crt and i play alot better with the swing stick but thats not an option anymore.

I have it for PS3. The poll should be a little more specific to include which system you own it for. I assume you own it for the 360. The online for 2k7 is broke on the PS3. All in all it's a pretty decent game except for too many homers. Wish the online was better. I'm sure online for the 360 isn't broke.

play with the sliders some and you can fix the out of control homers. it took me 10 games into my franchise but i figured what sliders work good for me and the comp. i basicaly took the legend sliders then switched took away some of my and the comps. power and a few other adjustments like ability to hit good pitches, gave the comp better ratings for taking balls when ahead in the count, and made outfield speed equal (i hate watching easy fly balls drop because my guys are running through mud). i was reading the frame rate is a little screwy on the ps3 version over at the 2k forums is that true? i also read about a few other quirks on the ps3 version wish i could remember them now.

online leagues are screwed up on xbl last time i checked.

I have it, and I as well really hate the swing stick. I am much happier just mashing a button to swing it. Maybe less realistic, but I do horrible with the swing stick.

Is there any way you can post the sliders you changed? I really want this to play like a sim. As far as a frame rate issue I'm not noticing it. I have a friend who also has it for the PS3 & he doesn't notice it either. It seems to play smooth. The graphics are unbelieveable. I also read where someone said there weren't any shadows on the PS3 and that's not true either. I only played the demo on the 360 so I can't really compare the two. I usually buy the same game for both systems but I didn't with this one. Maybe I'll try renting it for the 360 this weekend. In the past, 2k games were always better on the original xbox. 2k's online issues are always with firewalls on Sony's consoles. Never have to jack with firewalls on the 360.

The swing stick is awesome. Definitely makes it a challenge. Although the swing stick still doesn't feel as pure as MVP's.

oh yeah the mvp version of swing stick was the best ever.

as for the sliders its all about what you having issues with. are you hitting to many homers or is the comp?

like i said go to legend difficulty then start changing some settings there it will automaticly go to custom but keep the legend sliders that you dont change. its hard to say what you need to change becasue i may play different then you. im from boston area so i use the sox which means i had to put my power slider way down. here are some other tips,

turn the pitch speed up to 80 or more. i prefer more with classic batting since its easier to hit.

i turn the pitcher fatigue down to around 35 or 30. pitchers seem to lose stamina to fast in this game so around that setting you should get a decent ammount of innings based on real performance.

pitcher difficulty 80 or more. i have mine set to 90 at the moment.

power swing set to around 40 to 50. 50 may be to high for some people if you want sim ball.

batter power no higher then 30 but i prefer lower around 25.

now for the a.i.

ai contact and power at 50.

ai skill at 40-45

ai pitcher difficulty (this is when you make those perfect pitches on the corner and the comp. still hits 500' bombs with it) i set it to around 80 and i get decent strikeout numbers per game. you get rewarded for good pitching and still killed when you make a mistake.

ai effectiveness mod at 85.

ai pitchers use inside edge set to on. this definetly keeps you on your toes.

also dont use dynamic difficulty since it will just change your sliders anyways. my settings might not be good for you so try them and see it anything changes. just dont base your findings going against the royals or devil rays.

hell Ive been turning the power rating down to nearly 10....maybe we can get a good settings agreement and get a season going?

Thanks BB. I'm setting to these now. I'm hitting about 5 or 6 homers a game. I'm using the Indians. I'll let you know how these workout because it does take some tweaking to get it where you want it.

Wow!! I can't believe all of you guys hate the swing stick!?!? I haven't even tried classic yet, but all I've read is classic batting is basically cheese online, jacks left and right while the swingstickers are left frustrated..

Yea exactly...why should I play if Im getting frustrated...for the sake of saying I use the swingstick? I have tried the swingstick and its not really any harder IMO...The timings too touchy for online though I think. Dont let anyone tell you classic is cheese cause thats crap. Theyre usually the same guys using PINPOINT pitching style.

Why not just put all the settings straight down the middle at 50? I kinda want to get a league started so I can finally unlock those two achievements you get for starting or joining a league :)

I haven't taken it online yet, just from stuff I've been reading. Pinpoint pitching, is that where the ball cursor tells you where the ball will cross the strikezone rather than where it will break? If so, I've never used that option either, I just like to use what seems to get the best realistic feel.. Like I said maybe ignorance is bliss, I haven't taken it online yet

I finally picked up the game yesterday and I have to agree with everyone, the game plays so much better than the demo. Anyway, I played a few games, got crushed 15-2 in the first game and lost 4-3 in the second. The swing stick is definitely the way to go, but you have to get used to it. I will look into the league tonight and with some suggestions would like to set one up..let me know??

im in if you guys start it but i need swingstick off since my tv already has lag (game mode works good buy not good enough for that feature. really sucks since i liked it on the crt display i tried it on). i also gotta use pin point pitching (i know lame but its hard enough with pin point and lag never mind extra lag from online). if thats to much to ask then its understandable i will give it a shot with the other features but if it gets to ugly i will have to pull out.

losing to many times with a score of 15-0 isnt fun to me atleast.

I have a Sony kdf50e2000 RPLCD and I'm sure it probably has a slight lag, but it never really gave me a problem w/ touchy controls.. including the swingstick.. But I dunno, maybe it doesn't lag much. I still dunno how lag would be online w/ the swingstick, but I'm willing to give it a shot. And bboncorr, if we all play by the same rules, I don't think you'd have to worry about getting blown out like that, we would all experience the same issues.. It would probably make the games more realistic (low scoring) .. but that's just my logic, I still haven't played online.
