Mental Game

Postby percy896 » 03 Oct 2006, 04:13

Is there any wy to edit the mental game of the computers? Since there already is a good built in mental game it would add a whole new type of realism that no other game had if you could edit the mental games and/or strategies of CPU's.

Hello,

I'm not sure what you mean by the "mental game", but one of my goal in TE2007 is to have the possibility to have one custom behavior per player. (so it'll offer more variety in the opponent strategies)
I'll let users to edit these behaviors, using scripts, but it won't be for everybody, as it'll be like programming...

Here a basic example :
If PositionWidth BiggerThan 5
and PositionDepth BiggerThan 10
and SpeedWidth BiggerThan 5
Then
AimWidth = -PositionWidth;
AimDeepth = 10;
EndThen

It won't be exactly like this, it's just an example out of my mind right now... ;)

Anyway, in human language, it'll give :
if the player is 5 meters away of the center on the side (near the singles sideline), still near the baseline or more far than it, and he's running faster than 5 meters per second, then he should aim for a crossed strike...
It's really not complete at all like this, but it could be a start for a custom script to simulate the crossed-forehand of Sampras that he did so often when running on the side... ;)

I hope it answers your question... :)

Yes that's great, but also like how well players play on big points or whether they get frustrated easily, etc...

Oh ok, I understand better what you meant by "mental game" now.

Right now, I don't have special plan about this. Through the scripts, it'll be possible to add many thing like this, but it's something very subtle, so it might be hard to tune, so basically, it'll depend on how much time I can spend on it, and if I feel the gameplay will really miss that at 1st or not...

It would be cool if we could have Lindsay Davenport mope and not run for any balls... or Vera Zvonareva cry after every point, won or lost. Good idea.
