tennisfreak93,
the version of DirectX 9 installed by default on Windows doesn't include a utility lib needed by TE2013 & TEM2 to load the 3D players.

anaum91,
I told you your saved game was lost, even more so because the new version didn't preserve saved game compatibility.

I have a Question, maybe a idea if its not implemented.

Is there any possibility to get Wildcards, because u are from the Country the tournament is in? So if ure French u get a wild Card for the qualification or maybe for the tournament even if ure not through ranked? Like it is in real life?

and maybe is there any possibility to get Wildcards for better tournaments than ure ranked for without planning them? or the same about ur nationality and Country.

Mac users,
Mac version updated.
Warning: your current saved games aren't compatible with the last version, so finish your current career before to install the game again.

tennisfreak93,
you can get wildcards by 2 ways :

1) you'll get a wildcard if you get good results in the week before and miss the qualies of your next tournament, but only if its categories is not too much better than your previous tournament's one

2) if you're from the same country of the tournament and not all WCs have been distributed

You can't request WC directly, you have to book for the tournament instead.

Okay, so what i want: It would be nice, to get invitet to a higher tournament just by the tournament direction herself without planning it. Because if i plan it, and i dont get the wildcard, i cant play another tournament. thats sad. So maybe this is a idea

another thing: is there any possibility to do more opportunity to pick a sponsor ?

I can't believe I woke up so late and missed the TEM2 announcement
Way to go Manutoo! Can't wait for the release date.

Also, the original post (topic11-29241.php#p250174) from back in March mentions a free Key for "TEM1 buyers since last August".
So, two questions which I would have thought had been asked before but the forum search didn't find any hits:
- Is this a key for the early access version or the final released game?
- Why reward only late buyers and not old-timers?

tennisfreak93,
I'll see what I can do for the WC request.

What would you like exactly for the sponsor ? A faster refreshing of the current sponsor offer ?

Spicer,
1) The Key will of course work for the final version..! :yes:

2) Here's the reason : historically, sequels are given for free on release for buyers of the past 2 months, because it's about the refund period (so people are not tempted to ask a refund to buy the sequel instead). This time I extended the period because I started to show serious progress since last August, and I wanted to thank the people who still bought TEM1 instead of waiting for the release of TEM2 (and there were very few of them :blackeye: ). Moreover, you should have gotten yesterday the newsletter with an offer if you already own TEM1. (check your spam folder if it's not in your inbox :fear: )

maybe not just 1 sponsor with "winning GS or Winning Major" or something, it would be nice to have 3 opportunities to choose. Maybe like "Sponsor 1: Win GS, u get 250.000" SPonsor 2: Win Major or Reach SF in GS 150.000 Sponsor 2: Reach QF in GS or Master get 50.000

Like this. to get easier money. i dont win every GS. lol and in the beginning money is important

About the new version Build 9 SubBuild 2018.6.25:

I've given it a few minutes testing the new feature letting us pick an existing player, and either I'm missing something or there's something wrong:

1- On the player selection screen, the "Age" column shows the date of birth instead of the player's age

2- Picked Chris Evert as a Junior, starting using the default Play Period (1983-2007)
=> The Coach country defaults to USA but the associated flag is Andorra
=> She starts as a 15 year old in 1983
=> Once the game is created, the player only has access to the Pro Training schedules


3- Picked Steffi Graf as a Pro (same play period of 1983-2007)
=> She starts as a Pro as a 13 years old (which is her real age in 1983, but I think this is correct and she turned Pro in 1982!)

4- Picked Steffi Graf as a Junior
=> Play Period 1983-2007
=> Age 13 years old
=> Same as Chrissy, can only train as a Pro

Spicer,
1) It's normal, because there's no age at that point, and birth year doesn't fit in as a column name... :blackeye:

2) The wrong flag & birth year and being Pro instead of Junior are all fixed in today's Build

Yep, good job, it's fixed now.

For 1) I'd suggest you put DoB instead.
And, in that same vein in the Last Week News page, the header ("Age") is missing from the "Age" column in the Best Rises & Worst Drops table (the ever so slightly OCD in me gets really annoyed at these issues :P )

- After a Junior player get refused entry to qualifying (e.g. trying to get to the Australian Open in the first year) he is given the choice to enter Pro tournaments (Futures). Maybe that's because there are no other Junior tournaments that week (week #4) but is that really intended?
