The beta version of Tennis Elbow 2005 was just released !
You can grab it here :
There's only 1 court available, but the tournament mode is available. As the save/load feature is still not implemented, you'll have to start a new game each you'll want to do tournaments.
Else, even if it's the same texture for all the courts, the rebound is correct : more fast on herb, more slow on clay, etc...
There's also only 1 character available, even if the presentation of the players controlled by the computer can show the 2nd character.
If you have a Pentium 500 with a Nvida TNT1 16-MB, or less, then I'd like to know the Frame per Second you have in-game and in the menu showing a full Draw in tournament mode.
The FPS are shown in little, on top left of the screen. To see them bigger, you have to go to "Misc Options", turn on "advanced options", then turn on "Show FPS".
I'd like to know the FPS in 640x480x16 bits (it should be the resolution set by default for this kind of computer), with and without the "hi-res Court" option, from video options.
In the game itself, there're only a very few changes, except the increased lift effect.
But I tuned the ball rebounds, and now they should be more realistic. It's only slightly affects the gameplay, so I hope it won't disturb the players who were very used to the ball rebounds of TE2004.
And of course, thanks to report the bugs or little errors found.
Lastly, if you have some encouraging and positive comments, I take them too, because I'll need some good motivation for the last week of hard work that leads to the final version of Tennis Elbow 2005 !
EDIT: many screenshots of the new version here:
