How To Watch Ball In RTTS???

In every past year of The Show, you have been able to watch where the ball is hit with R1 while on offense. I can’t seem to figure out how to do so this year. Please help!

I’ve been watching it with L2 the last few years, try that. Unless I’m thinking of Franchise mode.

It's been L2 in RTTS for the last couple of seasons.

L2 works, but I notice it’s the broadcast view. I specifically remember 19 showing you the ball when you held R1. Just frustrating when you get picked off for running on a fly ball when you can’t see where it’s going to land lol

R1 was last year, and according to the controls, it should still be now.
It's not working.
L2 works for broadcast, but changes the angle which throws me off.

I've also noticed that sliding seems broken. The right stick doesn't seem to affect the type of slide at all.

Wouldn’t surprise me if it no longer works, wouldn’t be the only control in RTTS that is broken. Could be tied to the R1 for jump, R2 for dive configuration not working either.

Maybe that’s it - check your RTTS control settings, it could be set to this. Which doesn’t work anyway.

My junk & dive works fine. I’m an outfielder and use it repeatedly lol. Hopefully they fix this with a patch or something. They need it.

UPDATE: you CAN change the camera angle, however with the right analog stick. Not a fix, but a way around the issue for now. Wanted to share

You have to hold L1 when you slide now

As others have stated, hold L2 to follow the ball while running the bases, and hold L1 + direction to slide.

They’re right—it’s broken. It’s still supposed to be mapped to R1 (hold). You can see it in the controls section under options. It’s just not working. I sent a support email.

It’s definitely broken and frustrating.... kind of an important function for making decisions while running the bases

Yeah it's super frustrating because the broadcast of you Rose off your perception as to where your player is so now you have to hit the broadcast of you watch the ball and then try to watch the bases to see where you're at to make a decision it's just a pain in the [censored] I hope it gets fixed. I also opened us support email for this issue.
Thank you guys that made the mention of L1 for sliding. Made a huge difference

Just an update, I confirmed that R1 no longer functions for switching the camera and we will be adjusting the controls screen accordingly. L2 to view the ball is functioning as intended, and the right stick now allows you to freely rotate the camera. You can also click in R3 to reset the camera.
Sorry for the confusion .

Can we please get an option to invert this camera? Inverting Showtime throwing would be great too.

How do I get the MLB 18 and older camera? the one you could hold as a defender that pointed the camera where the ball is heading

Does this mean you're adding the R1 function, or removing the tool tip in the controls menu?

This function was amazing as it kept the perspective of your player, on the field from their perspective.
Now, it's disjointed and confusing when the camera is from the upper deck "broadcast view"

Removing the incorrect text from the controls screen. Try clicking in R3 while running, resetting the camera will often focus back on the ball.

Adam I see that you are replying on this thread. Would you happen to have any information on how to cover the bag specifically the 2nd base bag as a Player Lock or RTTS player? Specifically when a ball is hit to the outfield and the "CPU" second basemen runs out to cover the cut off throw.

You can move your player near the bag but the base gets over ran and the runner rounding first is allowed to slide in. Would be nice to receive the throw from the outfielder and have the tag put into place.

Thanks!

Please reconsider this - this is NOT a good solution. To start, R3 is way too fiddly to use and often moves the camera around when trying to press it. Also, the old R1 button mapping kept the focus on the ball only as long as you held the button, which was important to quickly go back to watching the base path. R3 does NOT do this but is set up as "switch on/switch off". Again, in addition it moves the views around so this much worse than it was before (without any apparent reason).

Pretty sure I'm not the only one with this issue!
