Tennis Elbow Manager 2 - Unity - Beta Version !

Postby manutoo » 01 Jun 2019, 14:09

Hello,

a bit more than 3 months after the release of the Alpha version running with the Unity port of TEM2, here's the Beta version of TEM2 powered by Unity !

It nows features everything needed for the v1.0, but it might still require a bit of polishing and bug hunting, although a good bunch has been caught during the Alpha phase, and there weren't too much bug reports lately.

While waiting for your feedback, in the incoming days, I'll do some of your requests I have noted down in the past months. (the easiest & fastest ones 1st ':D )

Demo :
- Windows : https://www.managames.com/predownload_e ... ity_b1.exe
- MacOs : https://www.managames.com/predownload_e ... ity_b1.pkg

Comments :
Comments go there so the changelog will be easier to follow : topic11-31345.php

Image

Notes :
- The saved game format changed, so you can't load anymore your saved games from the Alpha version ; this should be the final change of save format if I didn't do any big mistake (small mistakes are ok with the new format :P )
- Soon this version will replace the Legacy Beta version from last November, so all official download links will lead to it
- So the Legacy Beta version isn't supported anymore
- ChangeLog of the Alpha version is here : topic11-30862.php
- ChangeLog since the last Alpha starts in the next message

Version 0.99 Build 29 :

New Features :
- Skills : New focus skill ; it allows a player to prepare his strikes faster when it's above his (Speed + Tonicity) / 2 (and vice versa) ; this allows to create relatively slow top players that are still competitive enough
- Player Base : rankings updated to end of 2018, and it's now possible to start a career on 2019
- Modding : in case there's a lot of low ranking tournaments on a few, the engine will push up the participation of the low ranked players so the tournament draws will have a better chance to be all filled up

Changes :
- Modding : raised the court limit for .dmo recordings to 32767 from 127
- Junior : removed 1 event at end of November, as there usually are not enough players to participate at the 2 events on that week

Bug Fixes :
- 3D match : the game could crash in a few cases, and it could especially happen in doubles
- Woman Base : they got their double-handed backhands back ! ;)
- Man Base : some players incorrectly got 1-handed backhands ; most should be fixed now, but likely not all ; so if you notice any wrong backhand, please report them
- Recordings : couldn't load the stadium if the recordings add be done on the Court #128 or above
- Coach Center : it was not possible to buy an upgrade
- Activity : man draw results were not visible
- Rankings : only the 2 first teams of the doubles Team Race were showing up
- Olympics : the Olympics cities were all mixed up
- Tour : during the Master Cups and each World Cup round, the 1 or 2 lowest tournaments of the week had a big chance to get their qualifying draw almost completely empty

SubBuild 2019.6.3:

New Features :
- Modding : you can follow the matches of specific players by adding their player base number in your Tennis.ini (or your Profile .ini if you have created one), by adding the following lines under [WT_Static], for example :
Code: Select all
AutoWatchATP   =   1, 5, 10
AutoWatchWTA   =   2, 100

Note: if put a lot of players (eg: 50 or more), it might slow down a bit the Tour processing.

Changes :
- CPU Skills : changed a bit the way the service skills are normalized when the consistency and/or the precision are way above the power, so now it works more logically or more smoothly

Bug Fixes :
- World Cup : the game was crashing when playing in the World Cup qualification draw
- Coach Center : after have viewed the Coach Center, the Training Surface selection was corrupted

SubBuild 2019.6.5:

New Features :

Bug Fixes :
- Render Quality : our player shadow was way too pixelated when playing with the Fastest & Fast Quality settings
- Activity : past year doubles activity was always mostly empty

Bug Fixes :

- Head to Head : the game was crashing when setting the filter to "All"
- World Tour 3D match : starting a 3D match, interrupting it, then playing a 2D match, and then starting another 3D match could lead to bugs as the 1st interrupted match was reloaded
- World Tour 3D match : disabling the playable 3D match was resetting your coached players to be CPU controlled nor their level
- World Tour 3D match : the number of sets was always reset to the real one if you had changed it on a previous match

Version 0.99a SubBuild 2019.6.10:

Changes :
- Junior : raised the tournament limit per year, as it was unrealistically too low
- 3D Match : smoothed out the framerate hiccup occurring right before the crowd starts to applaude

Bug Fixes :
- World Tour : game could crash on new year, leading to a wrong active player list, and wrong skills for the players (ie: 100% everywhere)
- Country Cup : encounter courts were not correctly saved ; they will be now but only if you start a new game
- Match : if you had turned on the Human Controlled 3D matches, and had a lowered number of sets (which the case by default), and then played a textual-match or a CPU controlled 3D match, then the number of sets was also lowered
- Character Sheet : exportation to .csv was crashing
- Country Cup : fixed a couple of crashes
- Modding : fixed several issues & crashes when applying the Modding SDK

Notes :
- I had to change the Saved Game Format, so you'll lose your saved game ; really sorry about that, but I had no choice to fix a bug deep into the Tour structures... :(
