Instructions to install it
(I used the new technique of manutoo for mods)
1st Way to install it (recommended as it is more practical when you play)

Simple instructions, fist do a clean installation of TE 2013, then copy all the files in your directory replacing everything it asks you to, then before launching the game, copy everything from Data(1) to Data.
1. Download the RAR file. Once it has been downloaded, extract it anywhere you want (desktop for example)
2. If you want to keep your current saves in world tour and all, and have an seperate game for my patch, then make a fresh install of TE (full install) in another directory then RENAME the folder "Tennis Elbow" to Sam Megapatch 2012 Edition.
You have to install Sam Patch on an unmodded TE ( = clean install) !!
3. Open the file you downloaded, and copy everything into your Sam Megapatch 2012 Edition folder (REPLACE ANYTHING IT ASKS YOU).
4. Before launching the game, copy everything from Data (1) and paste it in the Data of the Sam Megapatch 2012 Edition folder.
Note for Mac OSX Users : be sure to not overwrite your existing Data folder ; you have to manually copy all files within Sam Patch's Data folder to your existing Data folder
2nd Way to install it
1. Copy everything from the Data (Don't copy THE DATA FOLDER, but copy everything IN the Data folder) and paste it in you own Data, replace everything that it asks you.
2. Copy Data(2), DataDavis, Menu, Sound, Music, Script directly in your TE directory, replace everything it asks...
Fix for number on left of screen : topic29-6125.php?start=315#p101172
Voila for the installation!!
Now to begin a new season, you will need before to copy EVERYTHING from Data (1) and paste it in you Data folder, then in the Data folder, you will be to make the outfit changes in the Players.ATP.ini
Whenever you are about to start Davis Cup matches, COPY EVERYTHING from DataDavis and PASTE it in Data folder, replacing everything it asks you. And once Davis cup is finished, just copy EVERYTHING from Data (1) to Data again.
Same system as 2011 Edition but different codes:
-Outfitao stands for Australian Open
-Outfitin is for the Indoor swing that begins just after (and also the South American swing)
-Outfitiw is for Indian Wells
-Outfitmi stands for Miami
-Outfitma stands for Madrid
-Outfitrg stands for Roland Garros
For the replacement system to have outfits changed, I'll quote myself from the first post:
Now for PlayersATP.ini, in each you will have subdivisions of outfits: To change the outfits, go on the PlayersATP.ini, go to Edit then Replace, write in "Find what": (Outfitao for Australian Open, Outfitin for the US indoor swing (including South american swing) write for "Replace with" : "Outfit"
BUT BE CAREFULL: When you do this "replacement" system, don't forget to back up the default file first so you can use everything again if you want to restart a season.
Finally the new trick implemented to find Folders easily:
Some of you like to change courts during the tournament, for example play one match with Federer on Central Court, then play with their player on Court number 6 for example. Well usually you will need to search all the folders to find the right tournament's customcourt. Now before clicking on the Data folder, type on the search bar the tournament you like, for example for Roland Garros it will be RG, for Madrid it will be MADRID, for Indian Wells it'll be INDIAN WELLS. Once you typed RG in the search bar for example, right click on the TXT file that shows up then go on "Open File Location" and you have the correct folder
ATP SHORTCUT ICON:
