Super Mega Baseball 4 patch #6 is available today adding some new accessibility features, improvements and bug fixes. The Standard and Ballpark Editions are available now on the EA App with voice chat support between Steam players.

New Accessibility Features

  • Speech-to-text chat and text-to-speech functionality can be enabled via the new Accessibility tab in the Options menu (or via Xbox’s settings on Xbox).
  • A new menu narration option that narrates to the accessibility features has been added. Players will receive a one-time prompt about enabling menu narration. The option can then be enabled and disabled from the Accessibility tab.

Improvements

  • In Online Leagues, CPU teams are now indicated with a unique icon.
  • Minor lighting improvements to Stade Royale have been made.
  • Minor audio improvements have been made.
  • Minor UI improvements have been made.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed: Pitchers with a high arm angle exhibit an abnormal wrist and arm action when pitching from the stretch with runners on base.
  • Fixed: Fielders completely miss a class of catches that look like they should catch, particularly when the fielder turns away from the ball as the ball arrives.
  • Fixed: Pressing the right trigger during a power pitch or while loading a power swing will prematurely end the pitching minigame or prematurely start a swing respectively.
  • Fixed: Making an in-game substitution in between two or more defensive position swaps can leave one or more players in the wrong location on the field for the next pitch.
  • Fixed: When a baserunner is tagging up on a fly ball, holding down the advance all button slightly before the ball is caught can lead to the baserunner ignoring the input.
  • Fixed: The CPU can still inadvertently leave a pitcher in the starting rotation in to pitch after using the pitcher to pinch hit or pinch run.
  • Fixed: CPU fielders with the Cannon Arm trait may throw directly to the cutoff man when their throw is strong enough to go directly to the base.
  • Fixed: The logo editor can crash when attempting to copy a logo after making alternate uniform changes.
  • Fixed: In Franchise, Season, and Elimination modes, uniform selections for CPU teams do not persist in midgame saves and the default home or away uniform is always used instead.
  • Fixed: In Franchise mode, the League Leaders screen only presents stats from the latest 10 seasons instead of the lastest 50 seasons.
  • Fixed: In Online Leagues, CPU vs CPU games count towards the league activity measurement shown in the list of Online Leagues.
  • Fixed: Game crashes after finding a Pennant Race or Online League match while in the middle of a Shuffle Draft for another Online League.
  • Fixed: When in a Shuffle Draft with an online party, the game can crash when one player is on the roster view and another player picks someone other than the top left choice.
  • Fixed: In Franchise mode, the Franchise Sign & Release screen crashes if there are no available position players or no available pitchers and the filter button is pressed to show only players of that missing type.
  • Fixed: The Player Movement screen from the League Editor can still crash in some rare circumstances, particularly in leagues with no free agents.
  • Fixed: The last name “Butterfinger” is not announced by the stadium announcer.
  • Fixed: Minor UI issues.
  • (Switch only) Mitigated: Game crashes at random times.
