MichaelTA,
I had forgotten to rename the file on the server and thus it was still the old version you have downloaded. You can re-download it now and it should actually be the last version.

EDIT 20min later:
I actually hadn't forgotten ; my script doesn't work anymore, so I just did it manually... :sweat:

Hi Manu! I will try out the new version to check if I can play matches like before. If I'm still not able, I'll send you the tennis.ini!

I have a question: will the last update (4 september) corrupt my save game or can I install it and keep playing my career mode (I started it with Build 12 SubBuild 2018.8.28)?

Strikeware203,
the saved games are compatible ; I always announce in the ChangeLog when the saved games won't work anymore.

Not a bug in TEM2, but on the managames homepage (in English), the games tab has the original TEM listed but it gives a link to the TEM2 page.

I downloaded the new version and now my save games say "invalid" :cry:

Is there any way to fix this or go back to the previous version? I was doing really good in that game and I don't want to start all over again.

Also, I still can't play matches in training club, It only lets me do training. Whenever I click on match the game crashes. I hadn't had any problems before, so I don't know what may be causing this. The only thing I can think of is I edited some players while inside the game and saved them to the training club. :sweat:

I can send you any files you need Manu, just tell me!

Strikeware203,
it means you had modified your player and/or tour bases. You have to put again the exact same modifications (if you installed the game only once, you have .lastused files in your data folder).

And yes, send me your Tennis.ini (or the .ini of your Profile if you have created one).

Thanks Manu, that was the issue. I had forgotten to replace the modified tour.ATP in the installation folder! :unsure:

I still can't play matches, so I sent you my tennis.ini via email! :yes:

A few things to say here, so I'm expecting a long post:

1) No age heading on the list of players when choosing a new doubles partner.

TEM2_008.jpg

2) Once I return from a tournament, the training court is always defaulting to synthetic (Started with indoor hard and only bought synthetic), even though I would only ever train on synthetic before the Australian Open.

3) Incorrect head to head numbers are randomly appearing (I have saves if you need)

TEM2_000.jpg

TEM2_001.jpg

TEM2_006.jpg

TEM2_007.jpg

4) The option for setting a character as my favourite doubles partner is very hard to notice, I only knew it was there because I was looking for it because I remembered the feature.

5) If I write the wrong name on the training schedule, I can't rename it without re-recording the whole routine again. Could you add an option to rename them?

6) Sometimes my doubles partner would get an injury registered as bearable but will always withdraw, even if we're winning comfortably, could you add an option to carry on?

7) I can't say for sure if this is still the case because the stats don't show at the side during a match at the training club, but in TE2013 the dropshot winner and volley dropshot winner counts reset after each set played, instead of counting for the whole match.

8) Can you add an option to choose who serves first in the doubles pairing each set (in playable matches as well as matches where the scoreline is simulated)?

9) My doubles partner randomly left me without any notification, so I was left entered into doubles tournaments without a partner and I couldn't get a new partner (I have saves).

TEM2_002.jpg

TEM2_009.jpg

10) Could you add a way to view a doubles head to head? Doesn't matter if it would be by partnerships or by player to player head to head

11) You probably know this, but Monte-Carlo isn't a mandatory tournament like the rest of the Masters1000 events, and it actually counts as one of a player's ATP500/250 events in terms of the points received for it, so would this be possible to implement in TEM2?

12) Could you add an option to withdraw from the doubles draw of a tournament if playing would mean withdrawing from a singles qualifying competition the same week?

13) Could you also add an option to withdraw from a match before it starts, regardless if the player is injured or not (for example if my energy was running very low so I wanted to withdraw from either singles or doubles draws of a tournament in order to conserve energy)?

14) As you also probably know, for Wimbledon there is a special way of calculating seeding in real life which is rather complicated, so I don't know if it would be easily possible to code in TEM2, but might as well suggest adding it just in case. If it is too awkward to implement maybe you could do a simplified version where all grass points earned are doubled in calculating seeding to give a more realistic scenario?

15) As a player's short term form reduces during a match, I noticed that it only happens with each passing game, which always reduces the stat by a certain amount, regardless of the amount of points played in that game. Could the length of the game played be able to affect how much form is lost after each game?

I realise that I gave a lot of small suggestions which may not be anything important to implement, but just in case I thought I might as well bring them up in case any of them seem to be to your liking.

MichaelTA,

1) Fixed for next update

2) I'll change that next time I'll change the save format (as it'll require to save the last training court to restore it)

3) Yes, please send me your saved games with the step to reproduce the wrong H2H

4) The whole process is kinda hard, so I guess I should explain it in the doc anyway

5) I noted it down for a future update

6) I'll think about it :blackeye:

7) in TE2013, this kind of counter isn't reset at the start of a new set ; it's same in TEM2

8) I noted it down

9) If you have a saved game just before it happened, yes send it to me so I could fix that (if I can reproduce it :fear: )

10) I noted it down ; PvP should be easy to do

11) I fell in love with tennis because of Monte Carlo : only over my dead body it'll be declassed in TE... ':D
However, you can skip the Masters of your choice. It was either like this before 2009 or I misunderstood the Monte Carlo rule when it arrived, I have forgotten... :P

12) 13) I think it's not allowed in real life, no ?

14) I noted it down

15) I'll look into that, but I'm afraid it might lead to some side issues... :fear: (I guess it may be possible to smooth things out over several games, though)
