Hello,

Tennis Elbow 2006 v1.0c just got released (Build 39) :

- Online : IP override => if the main server doesn't detect your correct IP, you can now manually set it
- Online : Reject button => you can now reject a player from the connection screen, if you don't want to play with him
- Online : name protection for registered users => if you bought Tennis Elbow, then no one else can use your name anymore
- Online : preset chats => you can send quickly a few chat sentences by pressing the Shift key followed by F1-F8
- Online : you cannot be too close anymore of the service line to return your opponent's service
- Online : possibility to change your name within the network menu

- Online : possibility to have a personal message displayed when you create a server (to say you're waiting for someone, or you want to play with a certain type of players, etc...)
- Display : window size and position is saved on exit and restored on next launch

Changes :
- gameplay : CPU is smarter to counter drop shot
- gameplay : all surface rebounds have been slightly changed
- trial : you can now always play to the warm up mode, it's not limited to the 21 first days of trial anymore

Notes:
- build 37 & 38 were Mac only
- there are a good bunch of new features & changes in this update, so I tested more than usually, but it's likely that there are some little mistakes left, so don't hesitate to report any glitch you may notice
- Changelog of previous versions is here :

a player i have beaten two times in a row, has been in the menu for 5 minutes (on my break point when the score was 2-2 first set), during this time on players statistics it says +18 elo for me. i had to quit as he went to menu on purpose, and the elo for me was reduced by 13 points, and for him it was +13! soooo not fair!!!

Build 42, November 6th:

Changes :
- Gameplay : cannot use a lot of top spin on the safe strike anymore
- Online : now the game doesn't pause anymore when you swap to another application

New features :
- Online : Give Up Rate is displayed after the Number of Games played; example : "Games: 50 -10%" means a player played 50 games, and gave up 10% of these games, so a total of 5 games; the Give Up counter just starts with this new build, so people who already played a lot of games will see their Give Up Rate grows slower than new players

Bug fixes :
- Online: maybe the crashes than a few people were experiencing on connection and at end of the game have been fixed

Just fixed a crash happening when entering the "Network" menu when never have played online before...
So if you downloaded the game within the last few hours and you never did a match online, you should re-download the game now (from the website).

Build 45, April 1st:

New Features :
- Added the option to have 0 game per set ; with this setting, you'll do only tie-breaks

Changes :
- when you add slice effect during the preparation of your strike, and then you do a top spin strike, the slice effect is now in the correct direction, thus you can do the famous Nadal passing..! ;)

Bug fixes :
- some of the skills for strikes were mixed up (ie: forehand skill was also used for backhand)
- a couple of other little bugs fixed

Build 46, May 8th:

New Features :
- Online : in Tourney & Fair modes, now it's not possible anymore to serve from the outer half of the court (this is to prevent too crossed services, which force the returner to be off-screen)
- In-game : show the number of deuces at the end of the point leading to a deuce
- Animation : now, when your strike the ball after have run backward, you'll usually have a strike animation instead of the idle animation

Bug fixes :
- Difficulty : the CPU players were reacting too fast in all difficulty levels from Beginner to Master (so Incredible wasn't concerned) ; because of this, it was way too hard to do winners against them ! (this bug was introduced in last August 2007 :? )
- Replay : sometimes, the Preview arrows could be shown instead of the ground trace

there are some problems in the new update. the draw and the fonts in it as well as in the ranking boards are, well, not that good...

example:
ImageImage

also in this new update the number of sets played in world tour mode has been reset to 1 set per match as default, and it cant be restored by editing the wt_current.dat file. this is really annoying as now i have to manually set the number of sets for each match. the settings in wt_current.dat file are:

[WT_Sav]
Diff = 0
FavPartner = 17
InMatch = 0
NbSet_0f = 1
NbSet_0n = 1
NbSet_1f = 2
NbSet_1n = 2
NbSet_2f = 2
NbSet_2n = 2
NbSet_3f = 2
NbSet_3n = 2
NbSet_qn = 1

i have set it to best of 2 for each match except for qulaification and chllengers... i hope this will be fixed soon
