cj1984,
1) ok, I'll try to add it tomorrow.

2) No major changes for the Players.ini, only little fixes (for example I just changed the SingleDouble of number 1 players).
Someone proposed me to do a Tour.ini for WTA with the correct tournaments for every year, so if he ever finishes it (he said he'd be for last June :P ), then I'll put it in the game. Same if someone wants to do it for the men. But except that, it won't change.

3) Right now, it's limited to 500. I might raise this limit once I'll have ported the game to the Unity engine.

loudon,
1) yes

2) yes, but only once I'll have ported the game to the Unity engine (you'll have a parameter in Tennis.ini )

Ethanovic,
1) If there's really too many nets, let me know. I'll try to tune it a bit (but it means some of them will be converted to ball ending in the net ;) ).

2) Thanks, I think I should be ok financially, but having a bit of extra cash means I'll worry less about it..! :)

3) You can Mod many things in the same way, but the Players.ini & Tour.ini will give you issues because of the Junior Tour so you can't use them directly, also menus might get super funky.

swinger,
la principale addition est le match en 3D. Un peu plus d'info ici => https://www.managames.com/newsletter/ne ... 18_fr.html .
Pas besoin d'acheter une nouvelle, ta clé achetée en Juin fonctionne toujours !
Et toujours pas de version tablette en vue, il faut que je finisse le jeu d'abord..! :P

pidzi,
no, there's only the in-game tooltip.
They're all mixes between existing styles :
- Bulldog & Counter Puncher are 2 steps between Defender & Power baseliner
- All-rounder as well, but with a pinch of the puncher in addition

Nice, good news for me :)

I started working on ATP Tour.ini for 2018 yesterday. At least an updated main tour will be done in short time, maybe next weekend. Challengers will take more time, but I will edit it for myself, so of course you can use the data :yes:
Once the calendar for 2019 main Tour is complete, I will update the file.

MinAIServiceTime is still there, like before, I hadn't touched it.
If you have created a Profile, be sure to modify your Profile's .ini instead of the Tennis.ini. Else, check your Tennis.ini isn't corrupted (eg: there are several [Game] inside instead of only 1).
If it's not that, then maybe it's bugged... :fear:


I've reinstalled the game after the update, and the problem persists. I don't see the parameter in the ini file after reinstalling the game, or if I delete the file and let the game regenerate it, the parameter does not show up. Adding it manually seems to have no effect.

cj1984,
I won't change the challengers, as they are not totally realistic anyway. But if you send me your main Tour changes, I'll check them and likely put them in the game if it's ok with you ! :yes:

And I had forgotten to answer you about the money last time... Yes, it's about balance, as the cost of the other things is tuned for the current prizes (eg: trainers, equipment, etc.). Plus I won't simulate inflation other the years, so using a bit old prizes isn't a too big issue. :)

type44,
I checked and it's "MinAiServiceTime", not "MinAIServiceTime" (no capital "I" in "AI"). And I checked it in-game and it worked normally.
I put the entry in the default Tennis.ini for the next update, so it'll be easier to use it. :)

cj1984,
I just did a tuning of the player bases in the latest version, so you might want to grab them back before doing any changes to them.

Are there specific player styles and/or court types that get a greater benefit from Spinny Backhand or Flat Backhand? Does being right handed or left handed make a difference for which trait you would want? My previous understanding was that you wanted high topspin for clay, low topspin for grass and neutral topspin for cement. Is having a flat forehand and spinny backhand (or the opposite) always a good thing? For player styles Is this a much bigger advantage for a powerbaseliner as opposed to a volley player? Also could you tell me codes to add these traits to the tour files so i can test things on my character. I do not know much about tennis so thank you for your time. I am really enjoying the game despite my ignorance of a lot of things.

Player.ini is not my priority. I want to finish both tour.ini first. And I think I will just change a few lower ranked German Players I know for my own use.
Thanks for bringing my suggested features. Maybe small change but big improvement for me :D

Smoo979,
I had actually forgotten to add their effects in the text-based matches..! :sweat:
So in today's update, having a Spinny BH will help a lil bit on slow surfaces (without any effect on average and fast ones), and a Flat BH will help a lil bit on fast surfaces (without any effect on average and slow ones).
The bonus is there whatever the player style is.

In 3D matches, I'm not sure it's that much helpful... I mostly added them because it was a recurring request to better simulate some players who have a noticeable spin difference between the 2 wings.

Here all the codes :
Code: Select all
"EarlyBall", "BallFeeling", "FastLearner", "InjuryResistance", "Service_Slice",
"Service_TopSpin", "Service_Kick", "Slice", "Champion", "Chameleon", "GlobeTrotter",
"SpinnyBH", "FlatBH", "Elderly", "RichKid", "Prodigy", "Upsetter"

And I'm very glad to know that TEM is still enjoyable by a non-tennis specialist like yourself, especially knowing I didn't make your life easy, as not much is explained in there... :blackeye:

cj1984,
it's good you're not on the Players.ini now coz I had also forgotten I'm going to update all the players with the 2018 rankings for the v1.0 release.

And relatively easy-to-implement features but big quality of life changers are likely my favorite kind of features..! :P

It is possible to select both spinny backhand and flat backhand on the same character. Would these cancel each other or would this indicate a character with both tools and they would get each benefit depending on surface?

@manutoo, can you explain how "YearModulo" in the tour.ini works?

[Tournament060]
Name = Umag
Ground = CL
DrawSingle = 28
DrawDouble = 16
Category = 7
Country = HR
Week = 30
YearModulo = -4
PrizeMoney = €398250 68200 35950 19450 11150 6535 3870

What does it do here for example? It's in the week where olympic tournaments take place.

Smoo979,
currently, taking both talents will give you both bonuses in the text-based matches, but in the 3D match, you'll end up having 0 bonus.

Garlichead,
I just checked and you have to change it in [TrainingClub] or [WorldTour], but not in [Game] (I'm going to delete it from there).

cj1984,
YearModulo = X --- tournament happens every X years, starting at 0
YearModulo = -X --- happens the years which are not every X years
YearModulo+ = Y --- starts at -Y instead of 0

I can only change it in [TrainingClub], in [WorldTour] the option does not exist.
Another thing, if i choose "View CPU matches" and i start a game, change one player to human, still 2 CPU's play against each other.

And I fixed the CPU controls in today's build. :yes:
