Hey, got my first look at the game. Menus are looking good and I really like the idea starting with a junior :)

Do you have a time plan or something when new features will come into the game? Especially 3D simulation is very important to me.

Junior Stats

Postby Sirmichaeljohnsonrob » 24 Mar 2018, 16:20

Im finding it impossible to train a junior with enough potentials to match the seniors who seem to have around 80% in all stat areas
if its not possible to match the scale of some of those players, its almost impossible to play consistently well in seniors because some playes down to rank 80/90 have higher stats at age 20 then i have 24 because my potentials didnt go over 80%

Also...the junior training is odd. by the nature of it, its unlikely you'll win a title until the age of 17/18 but so often have 14/15 been junior champions, i feel like im wasting 4 years working on the potentials, winning very few matches and pressing next and still not being able to match senior stats at the end of it

sorry, one more thing..

i got into a match with energy 84 and them 99- i will always always lose because, anytime my energy is lower.

I could go into a match with 99 and them 84- and add 10% boost and i would still lose the match again- even if i have higher stats all round pretty much- i cant work out if energy is a factor because it doesnt hinder the CPU at all

So as i was saying,
im the world number 4
im facing the world number 22- the stat difference is shes about 7-8 higher is groundstrokes and serve
im about 10% higher in special shots, strength speed and consistency.
both our mituvation are high

i saved the game and reloaded the match 50 times. ive lost all of them- been double bageled 5 times as well. this doesnt seem to work out to me when you avergae our stats, you wouldnt make this head to head 50-0

cj1984,
There's no schedule for additional features, as my work rhythm can get pretty unstable in these times (see here for details => topic11-27585.php ;) ).
I'm hoping to add a bunch of small new stuff within the next 3 or 4 weeks, and then I'll work on 3D matches which may take 3 months if not more.

Sirmichaeljohnsonrob,
1) In what difficulty level are you playing ?

2) There are still too many good players in the Grade C tournaments ?

3) Could you send me your saved game before that match you lost 50 times ?
Mental skills are very important, so if your opponent is better in rallies and superior in mental skills, chances of loss can be pretty high, but maybe there's glitch in your present case... :fear:

Sirmichaeljohnsonrob,
ok, I'll make the potential training a bit more efficient for next update.

And yes, send me your saved game, I'd like to check that particular match.

Else, I did a quick check on the 1st ten Grade C tournaments and got 2 14 years-old winning and the rest was all 17 & 18 years old players. I'll try to lower a bit that rate.

Manu, will it be possible to start a career with an existing player? Like for example if I wanted to start a career with Federer or Halep and their objective were to mantain #1 or be the best possible (as with any other created player). I saw it as a request in the suggestions thread but I didn't read anything about in the Dev mini blog. Thanks!

Hi, I've briefly tested the latest version and noticed a couple of minor issues:

1. The "resume current game" button at the start screen doesn't work for me. It doesn't load my latest saved game.

2. In the Load game screen it always defaults to the Women's tour list, even though I only have a save game in the Men's tour.

Suggestions:

1. I think it would be nice to have a big exit game button in the start screen. (There's a nice spot at the bottom of the screen)

2. These icons doesn't match with the flat design of menus. Please consider changing them because they stick out like a sore thumb.

iLoveRF,
1) If you close the game on a screen where there's no Exit button, the game might not be saved ; also if you start a new game and doesn't advance at least 1 week, it's not saved either

2) It depends on the current game type ; if you don't have a current game, then a game is started choosing randomly men or women ; so I guess you got only women auto-game so far

Manuto, i just played the demo. The game is great ! But i don't know what the red bar means.. I had the forehand above 70% and now it is at 45-50%.. Why and how ? It seems pretty hard to make the atributes so well to have a chance to win some tournaments. That's my opinion :unsure:

SCHLIRi,
1) If you see a red bar, it means your Forehand Power is limited by your Strength. You should train it 1st.
You can find some information about the game mechanisms here : http://www.managames.com/tennismanager/ ... _Game.html .

2) In what difficulty level are you playing ? You can lower it to Club if you think it's too hard to win anything... :fear:
