Contributor Mathew Chakko flagged up that “The Sporting News Baseball” game by Epyx Software in 1988 was advertised with a panel area that had a number of differences compared to the final game. Here it is:

Now compare to the screenshot from Gamebase64:

There is a MPH meter and also what seems to be a wind direction line too? Very minor differences from what was probably just a slightly earlier build used to screenshot. Interesting though to see ๐Ÿ™‚

    Having written this game, from what I can remember there never was a wind factor. I do see that the screen on the bottom has the coloring that I remember. Also the pitch count did factor into a pitcher’s accuracy as the game went on.

      Thanks Michael, i’ll update the page. The top screenshot is an earlier version, so we were curious about the differences to the final released version (as seen in the bottom screenshot).

      Did you also do the graphics and sound for the game?
