Jerky Gameplay

Postby Jonny » 10 Jul 2019, 22:30

Hi, I’ve been playing the demo and love the game so far, TE2013 player and love that game.

I’m experiencing a lot of jerkiness in the camera/movement of players when taking control of my players. The 3D engine is great when I watch the game, but when I take control of the player, it’s almost unplayable.

Is this just something that is in the demo, that has been fixed in the full game, because I really want to buy this game, but not sure that the game is jerky, or my graphics card is not good enough (GeForce 960M)

Hello,

the full version is exactly same to the demo version.

Try to do launch in DirectX 9 Mode ; to do that, create a shortcut with :
- Target : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Tennis Elbow Manager 2\Tennis Elbow Manager 2.exe" -force-d3d9
- Starts in : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Tennis Elbow Manager 2"

And launch the game in fullscreen (ie: not windowed).

Then go to Options -> Video then click on "Fast" and "Apply", then activate "Advanced Options -> 2D Background" and "Apply". Try to do a match, it should be much better.

I have tried all the above and it just hasn't made any difference. It is so jerky that when I take a shot it will take upwards of 10 seconds to actually make it over the net.

Now I know this is a tennis management game, so I can't really complain about not being able to play the tour as a player, but still upsetting and doesn't bode well for TE4 if this uses the same engine/specs.

That sounds really strange.

Do you play with the keyboard or a controller ? To try switch, if you can, to see if it helps or not.

If you only have the keyboard, try to bind other keys to move & hit the ball.

Just thought i'd jump in and say this sounds like Jonny is playing TE2013 and not TEM2... Maybe he needs to choose the graphics card instead of the integrated graphics option? I had the same issue in TE2013 until I changed this, for some reason it defaults to integrated graphics. Hope this helps.

If this is wrong then disregard my message :) But I have never personally had jerky gameplay in TEM2.

Yeah, definitely playing TEM2, but as Manutoo says I am playing with keyboard and mouse.

I wasn’t aware there was an option to choose which graphics card was playing the game. I assumed that it was always the dedicated graphics card.

jonnycosmkc,
if you have both an IGP & a GPU, you might have to activate your GPU for TEM2. It's done in your drivers config or something like that.

I’ve now tried this on both my computer and a top of the range gaming PC (i9 9900x/RTX 2080Ti) and the gameplay is just jerky. 60FPS on both systems, but the camera just moves so slowly.

Very disappointed. I guess I’ll go back to TE2013.

Thanks for trying to help.

Ignore all of the above...I have finally fixed it. Now I can buy the game! Thanks again.
