TE2009 : Beta 1

Postby manutoo » 04 Oct 2008, 08:47

Hello,

Here the Beta 1 :
www.managames.com/download.php?TennisElbow2009_fb1.exe [ ~13MB ]

"Beta" coz now the "Training Club" should be final, except for the translations & the possible bugs left that you'll hopefully report here..! ;)

Here the list of the improvements since the Test 3:
- Double Handed Forehand
- Detailed Shadows
- Dynamic Camera
- Low detail models, for older computers with a 3D integrated chipset, not a 3D card
- On-screen Scoreboard
- Double-handed forehand & bachhand tuned : 10% relative handicap on FH & BH's powers, and 10% absolute bonus on counter skill + ball 15% less difficult
- aiming auto-back speed lowered by ~50%

As always, I'm waiting for ur comments..! :)

Le jeu est incroyable ! La balle part mieu contrairement au 4 dernier preview. Excellent travail Manutoo.
Une chose, il n'y a pas de mode pour la corpulance ? je veux dire pour le poids.

Nice addition of the camera angles! I'm also glad there is the old "Still" angle. Multiple camera angles always keep sports games "fresh"...not that this needs it :wink:
Very nicely done...now on to more testing...

There is a bug that when the camera angle is set to "scrolling", when I am serving, and throughout the point, the camera doesn't scroll, it just stays still. Though, when I am receiving, the camera scrolls like it is supposed to.

I just wanted to add, for volleys, when acceleration is used, the ball always seems to either hit the baseline or go long. More often than not it goes long. Even with NetPresence at 100. Could you look into this? Maybe have it more often go a little more inside the baseline.

@kyuuji :
I'll do some tests to add the weight, but I'm not sure if it's easily possible or not to add it...


@Santiago92 :
yup, needs to wait for the final English file 1st... And then I'll give u a file with only the new sentences since TEM.


@Algo :
I just did about 100 shots in warm-up mode, and always got the Danger Zone.
Did u notice in what situation it didn't appear ?
Were you playing online ? Warm-up ? Match ?


@Brad1981 :
I fixed Scrolling mode & updated the version, u can dl it again...

If you want to do an acceleration at the net, u must be very sure to hit the ball with the center of the racket & with enough preparation time, else there are big chances it'll go out...

WELL DONE!!!! GREAT JOB!!

Postby solarisaint » 04 Oct 2008, 19:41

I think its great to have a simulation and arcade option in camera mode Everybody wins! The only suggestion I have in regards to the camera option and feeling guilty about saying is, Is it possible to come down lower on the standard dynamic low cam to set the variation of the two for a true 100% simulation, and can the corners be open a little more. I think its great how you take the time for a consensus with your consumer unlike american software giants become so poweful they just dont care what the consumer wants. also I haven't gotton a true smash on the volley yet at 100%. Ill try again

I don't get the errors on volleys...I often hit a volley out, and the marker shows I hit the ball with the center of the racket... :?

Yes, volleys are troublesome. I think there should be more "give", especially in arcade mode.
Also, I can't help but keeping looking up at how fast I hit a shot. Could you add the option to turn it off? It's a cool feature, but I don't want to have it on all the time, because I keep looking at it :lol:

And is it possible to have the zoom feature work on the Still and Scrolling cameras? It would be neat if you could set the zoom level while in the Still position.
