Reactions To Build 46 [Black Bars, Update, etc...]

Postby milos » 09 May 2008, 20:33

the update is really great, BUT, i have three questions:

1. when playing in tour mode i often have a "unknown code" message written in the box where it is supposed to say 1st service/2nd service, as shown on this picture:

Image

2. the bug that happens after a few startings of the game as shown on this picture still occurs (and has been for a few last updates), after which i must re-install the whole game.

Image

3. since i play the game on my laptop, i have already asked the question about the display being too wide, and now just as i got used to playing in windowed mode without the black bars, now they appear! but only when i'm in the menus, and not during the actual match, also i'm posting a picture of this too:

tha answer to tha last question might be connected with service pack 3 of windows xp i insatlled recently, maybe it updated the video driver in some way?

any ideas manutoo?

Hello Milos,

1. I guess the game didn't update correctly...
You should uninstall it 1st (but keep your saved games & your key), and then re-install it.

2. Humm, it probably means it's crashing on exit... Did you see any crash window when you exit the game ?
Next time it happens, could you open your Tennis.ini and copy/paste the 1st section ( = [Display]) in the forum ?

3. Coz I'm now working on TE2008, and I added the wide screen support, then I also updated the menu system to handle it. TE2006 render engine hasn't been updated, but still, you can add this line in your Tennis.ini, under [3dEngine] :
ForceAspectRatio= 0
It'll force the Aspect Ratio to 4:3 all the time.

All of this has nothing to do with the SP3 ... ;)

Thanks a lot, everything works great now, especially the display with the black bars.

i do have one suggestion, though, the problem with the "unknown code" was caused by me, fixing the pack1 file with qped, in order to have a serbian flag next the country of mine - serbia. apparently serbia and montenegro have split two years ago, and we are now two separate countries. i managed to change the name, and the short form (from SCG to SRB), and have chnged the flag with qped, but with the new update it seems to cause a problem.

so my question is, can you change the list of countries for the next update, so that in the world tour there is serbia instead of serbia and montenegro, and with the serbian flag. i have the picture of the flag in .tga if you need one...

hmm...I still get black bars on the side when I add that line to the .ini file. It even makes the match itself have black bars on the side.

@Guest :
if you have black lines, and you don't want to have them, then you have to add this line, under [3dEngine] :
AspectRatio= 0
You can also add this one :
ForceAspectRatio= 0
but it shouldn't change anything

@milos :
I'll have to check if I can add a country or not... (I think it could create troubles with the on-going Davis Cup in saved games)
At least, I'll do it for TE2008.

But if you were able to add it before, you should still be able to add it now, I guess you did a little mistake on your last try.

for now Manutoo I don't see anything who needs to be fixed
maybe: enlarge the net and improve the player's clothes , racket but since that TE 2008 will be 3D it'd be more easy to select ur racket! like wilson, babolat.
But this it's in future.
What would I like for The next version of 2006:
My suggestion is that everybody who is in the network can check current matches live! And then it is on that the players could have an option like Spectator: ON or OFF(anyone can join)! CMON MANUTOO AND I' LL BUY 10000 Tennis Elbows.
I know it's a lot of works, but I just hope that this could come 1 day, 1 day! :roll:

Yup, it's not easy work. It wouldn't be too hard to do a simple system, but then the number of spectators should be quite limited coz it'll make the lag raises quickly...

That doesn't require a password, the only thing that needs to be done is "Reject forever" option and I've already said it in the Online Games forum. If you reject a player forever, it would simply mean that he couldn't join your game until the next time you run TE
