here the test version #1 :
This version is to test the new gameplay & ball physics and see the 3D players (male & female) in action by yourself !
The AI is very basic !
It's just there to send the ball again & again, so I don't need any comment about it now !
Even its animations are still synchronized with the old ball physics, not the new one..!
But you can consider the gameplay as final, so feel to comment about it as much as you want.
Actually, I'll tune depending of your comments, and also once the AI will be done, to be sure it's well balanced...
No more explanation for now, as I want to know if you can figure out how it works by yourself (if not, I'll have to create a tutorial and/or add visual hints).
You cannot edit your player from within the game; to do so, you have to edit the "Tennis.ini" file, under [TrainingClub_p1] .
Here the entries that have an influence on the game :
Lift // top spin
Preview // ball preview
Style // 0: defender; 1: power baseliner; 2: puncher; 3: varied; 4: volleyer; 5: counter
Soul // 1: human ; 2 : CPU
Female // 0: male; 1: female
Hand // -1 : left ; 1 : right
By default, I set the Player 1 with good forehand, volley BH & Service, and average backhand, volley FH.
List of Strikes
* b1 = normal strike
* b1 + up = short ball
* b1 + down = top spin
* b2 = slice
* b2 + up = drop shot
* b2 + down = defensive lob
* b1+b2 = acceleration
* b1+b2+up = short acceleration
* b1+b2+down = aggressive lob
* No button = safe strike
On Service :
b1+b2 = 1st service at max speed
b1 = safe 1st service, but slower
b2 = 2nd service, 100% safe
up = slice
down = top spin
