New Features :

- Profile : if you created a Profile, the Profile selection screen will pop up on 1st launch after you will have re-installed the game

- Match replay : on-screen skip point / game / set buttons added
- Camera : the 3D camera (ie: not for 2D courts) can now be moved left/right (it's mainly for replay, as this is not playable without getting seasick ':D )

Changes :
- World Tour : your doubles partner can't get injured anymore


Notes :
- Changelog of previous versions is here : topic15-12146.php
- Mac OSX & Linux versions will be released soon
- Comments : topic15-14103.php


Important Note :
Post in this topic only if it's related to the latest new Version / Build, ie only for these 2 cases :
- about a point listed in the New Features / Changes / Bug Fixes
- about a bug that you are sure didn't happen in the previous version but happens in the new one (else, post in the "Bug Report" forum)
Do not write about anything else, else I may delete your post without any prior warning (or at very least, I won't answer it) ; if you're not sure your topic is related or not to the latest version, just create a new topic in the forum, it'll be fine...

Also on a side note, don't send me PM ( = Private Message) except for Private thing. Everything that can be read by everybody should be pointed out / asked in the forum, so my comments & answers could also be read by everybody, and hopefully, I won't have to write them again when someone else will have the same comments / questions...

SubBuild 2013.8.31, August 31st:

Changes :
- Camera : Still & Scrolling cameras now take Left/Right positioning in account

Bug Fixes :
- Online : fixed a crash when playing in fullscreen & joining a game
- Online : game was crashing when trying to login & Mana Games' server was down or the connection was disrupted
- Packaging : yesterday version was bundled with the Debug .exe instead of Release .exe, leading to a bunch of problems
- World Tour : loading a different saved game while being in Season mode would lead to the player who was chosen in Season mode being corrupted in that newly loaded game
- Camera : changing the camera during an online game could make it go crazy

Notes :
- Comments : topic15-14225.php

Build 102, September 8th:

Changes :
- Gameplay : 1st serve rate significantly raised when Service Consistency is 15% or more higher than Service Power (by about 4% when Consistency is 15% above power, to reach 77%)
- World Tour : US Slam Women 3rd has now a tie-break

Bug Fixes :
- Gameplay : 1st serve rate was 1.5% too low when Service Consistency was equal to Service Power (ie: 68.5% 1st serves in instead of 70%), and 0.7% too low when Consistency was 5% above Power
- Controls : changing the setting of "Use Alternate Strike Up/Down" wasn't taken into account till you had restarted the game, changed the chosen controller, or set a new button

Build 103, December 8th:

New features :
- Replay : pressing B1 or B2 during the replay pauses it

Changes :
- Gameplay : run acceleration when starting to run backward slightly lowered, and when starting to run forward very slightly raised
- Gameplay : tiredness from running tuned ; now it's much more tiring to speed up or actively speed down, and much less tiring to passively speed down
- Gameplay : speed conversion removed while running backward (ie: you'll be a bit slower when doing zig-zags & circles while running backward)
- Gameplay : doing a B1+B2 serve on 2nd serve lowers the chance of success by 6%, and doing a B1 one by 4%
- Gameplay : when doing a topsin strike with Consistency above Power, the Consistency value is lowered down to the Power value to determine the ball length (ie: you can't do very long & slow moonballs anymore by having a very low Power and a very high Consistency)
- Gameplay : slice max speed raised by 5km/h ; slice speed is now determined by Consistency instead of Power ; off-centering the ball on slice now significantly lowers its speed
- Gameplay : speed handicap on slice from high Topspin skill halved
- Gameplay : Net-cord very slightly tuned & frequency slightly lowered
- Modding : maximum of courts raised to 512 (instead of 256 ; Davis Cup still can use only the first 256 courts, though)

Bug Fixes :
- Gameplay : run acceleration in diagonal was a bit too tiring
- Music : on some (most?) 64-bit Windows, the music couldn't be played (you need to install the Demo, not the Patch, to fix that)
- World Tour : fixed a couple of bugs in the tournament selection process that could lead to bypass the need to qualify
- World Tour : crowd density was always maximal for main draw matches, even in low ranked tournaments & early rounds
- Statistics : an out second serve could count for the max service speed
- Replay : setting Grunt volume to 0 could mute other sound fx during the replay
- Profile : switching to one Profile where a Player was using the Keyboard to another one where same Player was using the Gamepad (or vice versa) would not update the controller for that Player
- Controls : ";" key couldn't be saved as a control, so it was unset after each game relaunch
- Menus : switching court (and other things) with keyboard instead of mouse was always setting the info text at bottom of the screen to the 1st possible value
- Modding : command line argument to not load any Mod changed from <None> to #None# (as < is a symbol of input redirection, it couldn't work)

Notes :
- some of these points were already implemented since a few weeks
- Comments : topic15-15242.php

Build 104, December 14th:

Changes :
- Gameplay : run acceleration backward handicap & forward bonus lowered by about 30%
- Gameplay : run acceleration backward handicap & forward bonus match the player direction on court (ie: backward doesn't mean to the back of the court anymore, but in the back of the player)
- Gameplay : Tospin strike Consistency also lowered to match Power when the Topspin skill is low (else Defender style could still exploit the long slow Topspin strikes)
- Gameplay : Dropshot is slightly shorter

Bug Fixes :
- World Tour : fixed a crash occurring more or less randomly when no doubles partner was selected

If you don't add me nor send me a PM, you might see your chances reduced. Inform me about anything that might have went on with your matches BEFORE deadlines, otherwise, decisions won't be changed.

manutoo, is it possible just to have anims from this update (but rest of stuff from patch). I ask cause I play Dilma WTA patch (cause it is only one WTA) and all anims there are very fast (seeded) like in your new update there are slower (and I prefer them on that way). Soo, is it just possible to have them but rest of the stuff of the patch?
Hele.

With defenders not having the advantage of hitting deep topspin moon ball shots...i think i am fine with their circles because they cannot get deep shots when they are doing the topspin stuff. So i think its fair now for everyone....so i dont think circles are bad for the game especially with this update reducing some moon ball skills lol :D

@N 201 : The problem is not about the deep moon ball shots I think, it's the ability to catch unbelievable shots on lines with counter slice, due to these irrealistic circles moove. I didn't play the two last updates so I cannot talk but partly because of that, TE advantaged way too much defense before these updates.

Make top spin more effective then. That would be realistic, if done well. Perhaps boosting counter effect in top spin shots hit late.
You don't move in circles in tennis, unless it's wheelchair one

Circles are ridiculous. Too bad we are back to that mode :thinking: :unsure:

I rather see guessing around than moving in those circles and up back to the wall to reach for shots, that you wont see in real life, but oh well... :sweat: I wont waste more time on this..
