RamonPSV,
no.
For the Davis Cup, it's a treason to its spirit... :sad3:

Is it possible to add the ATP Cup through a mod? Or do country cups only work as Emerson Cup?

Takulo,
no, it's not possible ; engine supports only 1 Country Cup, plus it needs to have 1 round per week at the maximum.

I want to add a random generation player mode. 8-) Because I play many times and get bored for the first few years.

Hi there,

just wanted to share my first impressions on the game.
While i like the combination of TE2013 and TM very much (not really groundbraking new things in it), i think the price tag for it is a little steep. Got it with a little extra discount as owner of the other ones, but still i think 10 bucks would be ok as owner of TE and TM, otherwise 20 bucks would be ok. While its a good game the price is much higher than for some other good games out there...
;)

There seems to be a little error in the steam achievements. The returns are counted pretty weird.
I have 0/1 on "return to sender"
2/10 on "faster than it came"
and 11/100 on "las vegas kid"
And if manually played matches count, i really had over 100 return winners for sure.
:)

In the documentation there is no mention about the brown ?potential bar?, just the pink and the turqoise are explained.

I would appreciate to have some kind of "rest" (for the rest of the weekdays button). That comes in espeacially handy when coaching multiple players that are all playing in a tournament and have to rest those 1 or 2 hours between games. Its a little drag to have some clicks for it over and over and over again.

Other than those little things i recognized so far, the game is stable and fun to play. Thanks for that and maybe think about lowering the price a bit - would be fair.
;)

Has being able to turn on DevMode been disabled. I know I sent through a bug report where I mentioned that after a crash a majority of my settings were set to defaults that weren't in my profile. After attempting to set AllowDev or DevMode on, it doesn't come on but neither does it appear to turn on in the menu where it should be.

Cram,

1) Achievements are tracked from X to Y ; eg: from 2 to 10 ; I've read that if several achievements start at 1 from the same stat, they fail. I didn't check if it was still the case or not, so I just did that trick.

2) Reddish line => https://www.managames.com/tennismanager ... potentials

3) If you click nothing, the players will automatically rest with their training hours left => no need to click anything

4) I lowered the price of TEM1 to $10 on Steam last June ; it didn't change the fact that almost no one is buying it.

If people couldn't have paid more than $10 for TEM1, it'd not have a TEM2. I'm not exactly making a lot of money with these games ; they are super niche games, and there's 0 direct concurrence, exactly because it's almost impossible to turn in any profit from them. Even more, if I didn't reinvest 50% of TEM1 code into TE2013 and TEM2 into TE4, it'd not have been possible to make these games.

And if people couldn't pay more than $10 for TEM2 (or even $20), I wouldn't be able to work on releasing a few updates for it during the next few years, like I'm planning to.

In the past 3 months, TEM2 has been selling 50 times more than TEM1, with an average sale price 4 times higher ; so globally, price doesn't matter as long as it stays reasonable. $30 for the best tennis simulation ever made, with the possibility to both coach textual match & realtime match, and even play tennis by yourself, and with no other choice if you want a realistic tennis management experience, and all that without any in-app purchase, nor grind, nor pay-to-win, nor pay-to-save-time, I think it's still a pretty sweet deal nowadays... :)

megadam,
nothing has changed about that ; in doubt, just rename your Profile .ini to .ini-bak , and the game will generate a new one ; maybe it'll work better.

Great game, I've really enjoyed playing, it's the best of its kind on the market. Just a question. I was messing around with the Tennis.ini file to try to get the game to work in the background on another window, and I managed to find the NoPauseinCPUvCPU option. However, I think I may have messed with something else, because the serving player no longer bounces the ball before they begin their service motion. This is a big part of the realism for me, so I was just wondering if there was a setting somewhere to turn this back on. Thanks :)

birdzilla123 ,
you might have set MinAiServiceTime to 0. Normal value is 1.5 .

rdfhw1988,
you mean for the text-based matches, right ?
No, it's not possible ; it's a complex formula without direct rates.

Hello,

is it possible that you will renew the Emerson Cup into the Davis Cup new style? And is a new format for the King Cup (Fed Cup) also possible? I hope you can update the year calander into the current calender (changing the tournaments on Challenger level for example)! By the way, I like the concept of the Olympics, but I still hope for the possibility to play Mixed doubles. But I understand that that is too difficult to do..

Kind Regards
Martien

Martien,
No, no change to the Davis Cup format.

If you want a more realistic schedule : topic11-31544.php & topic11-30565.php .
