Gameday tweaks
2007-04-06 12:50
by Bob Timmermann has tweaked its Gameday application a bit. If you go to the Boston-Texas game, you will see a button in the upper right that says "Options". You can turn off the pitch trajectories, although you will still get the readings on speed and the mysterious pFX figure in the upper right. You can also change from 3D to 2D animation and you get an easier to follow picture in my opinion.

The big ad in the lower right is still there and it can't be resized, but at least the application doesn't seem to be as much of a CPU hog.

Still doesn't easily tell a person what the current batter did last time up. You can replay the entire at bat or nothing. If you use Firefox, the ad can be banished with the AdBlock extension, but that merely leaves you with a non-resizeable black box under the too small roster window (although it does reduce the possibility of a blinky ad-induced epileptic seizure).

Stoopid MLB! Get offa my lawn!

It's still an incredibly bad way to follow a game.

I'm trying to be charitable. I was chided by the estimable tangotiger for criticizing the app on Baseball Analysts.

Although live, tv, and radio beat the tar out of it, gameday is way ahead of refreshing the box score over and over again.

So is it really the case that no one knows what pFX is?

If you have to ask, you don't need to know.

Dumb question. Gameday is too large for my screen and there aren't any scrollbars, thus I can't see all of the info. Oh yeah, the options button is off the screen as well. Can somebody tell me how to adjust this?

I think you can only adjust the options for games that have the fancy pitch trajectories.
