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

It's about gameplay. Usually I am watch Cpu vs Cpu matches in Training Club. In TE 2013 ratio winner\error points is approximately 2:1. In TEM 2 errors much more than winner points. It's a conscious decision in gameplay? In my opinion, gameplay in TE 2013 better than TEM 2.

rdfhw1988,
actually, most official stats will add the forced errors to the winner count.
Also, in TE2013 there are almost no unforced errors, as the players don't do any mistake except when aiming left/right, and thus the UE stats is really not realistic.

There's no easy way to change that. But be sure to set the Focus skill at least at (Speed + Tonicity) / 2, or even above ; it should lower the UE rate.

Tnank you for answer. Sorry for my bad english. In any case, TE 2013 and TEM2 are gorgeous. They have their own distinctive features and are in demand. Like everyone here, looking forward to TE 4.

Hey manutoo,

thanks for still working on the game from time to time, even if the priority is on TE4 and maybe not so many people playing TEM2.

I've got some questions regarding the future of TEM2:
- Do you plan to update the game for starting in 2020 with an updated playerbase?
- I think you said, that you will update the match engine once TE4 is done, right?
- Do you plan to do any other new features for TEM2?

And one report: I think I read about it here, the "Las Vegas Kid" Steam Achievement is broken (for me). I got 73 return winners for a long time now while seeing my player doing return winners in 3D matches. Aces are counted correctly.

cj1984,
1) I plan to update the rankings, although I will probably not add new players

2) I already did some tunings to the text match ; I don't have more plans for it now. I have many plans for the 3D matches for TE4 ; some might affect TEM2

3) I'm going to add a lower level of Junior tournaments, so it'll be easier at the start when taking a Junior player

4) It should be fixed for the next update, thanks to your report ! :yes: (it was from the change of rally length count)

Maybe two ideas that might be not too much work to implement:

- Option to have a Match Tiebreak in singles qualification for ITF Events (also interesting for TE4!?)
- Perhaps a little bit more tricky, but Hospitality seems to be more important on the Tour right now. Challengers have to offer hospitality and on Womens ITF Tour Hospitality events provide more ranking points. Maybe you can implement a hospitality option for Tournaments, so no costs for Hotel?

If you want to add new important male players, of course you can use my mod file at least for basic data like Birthdate, hand, hight, weight. They should be correct from ATP profile of the players.

Hello from Vienna

I have the game for 72 hours now; I have long considered whether I should buy it, I have it and in no way regret it. Enormous potential in my opinion, for part 3 or even updates. I am new here in the forum and new to this game, unfortunately I can not post a lot yet. but I wrote an email to Mana about things that could put reality on our screens even more.
I think the game can become one of the best sports managers and I've played a lot of them; what could be done better? Not a lot at the moment, but the game could still use additions, such as

Unfortunately I can't write any more, but as I mentioned, extremely cool game with enormous potential

Greetings and healthy for all
JayAr from Vienna

PS:
the mod also works flawlessly; Without the possibility of original names, I would not have bought the game

which gives the game a boost:
- Interviews that affect other players and coaches as well as sponsors
- Tactical briefings before and after the game, such as, the opponent has a weak backhand, forcing him to use it; the opponent is in poor condition, let him go, or after the game, for example, your first serve needs to get better
- Establishment of a tennis academy with scouting for youngsters, sales of merchandising
- the possibility to include pictures (players, Courts, trophie, trikot)

Here I think it's good if you can use CTRL to select the desired units and you don't have to train the entire rally or don't have to click on the units individually

Ah, one more modding question:
Is it possible to set different sizes of qualification draws for Tournaments of the same category? So can I use "QualifDraw" in the Tour.ini to overwrite the category data?

cj1984,
1) "LastSetTieBreak" & "DoubleLastSetTB" are there for that (if I understand you correctly :) )

2) Noted down (low chance to come any time soon)

3) Actually, I may add some players, because I made a system to allow to do so without invalidating the saved games (hopefully it works :P ) (plus anyway once I will have made the changes to the Junior Tour, the saved games might be invalidated anyway :sweat: )

4) Yes with "DrawSingleQ" & "DrawDoubleQ"

5) I sent you an email about your bug report : "You have 13 tournaments using the Category 35 which doesn't exist in your TourCategory"


Jay_Ar,
I got your email with your suggestions and I answered it earlier today ! :yes:

Thank you for your answers!

1) ITF events have a match tiebreak in singles only in qulification draws. I don't think I can differ Quali and main draw.

2) Ok.

3) If you do so, can you give me a list of the new players so I can remove them from my modfile?

4) Thanks, so I will use that for my womens Tour file :)

5) Thanks again. Didn't notice this because these are the olympic tournaments :/

Weird, my previous post looks like from Guest. Is there auto log out even for short inactive times? (However I selected log me in auto)

Posting it again here, above msg can be deleted.

Thank you so much for the update manutoo glad to see these periodical updates and bug fixes :)

I have a question about last bug fix.

- Controls : the auto-positioning trick was working rally even when facing an opponent better than the Junior-10 level ; it is now disabled in that case (the trick is to press any strike button before your opponent moves and then your player will start to move right after your opponent strikes the ball ; it's very useful to return services)


Sorry but I didn't understand what you mean here. Can you or anyone else give me more detail? Does this affect only opponents or affects our player too if we are not in control/just watching them play?

BTW Hi all! I just signed up to forum but I own game since xmas.
