The players look amazing and the camers can't be beat, even in an xbox 360 tennis game. This is going to be an amazing game, and manutoo your a master at your art.
The couple points I can't ignore and they may have been mentioned before . Is their anyway of disabling umpire calling in warm up... ie you hit the ball out he yells out, she returns into the net, he yells out again. Maybe is it possible to put the new music as a option in warm up. also in the match, does he have to scream out or fault when the ball hits into the net. In tennis when the ball hits into the net the point is varied by the new score. I know they call fault when the serve is out or out when the ball goes out, but when your playing this game for many hours I think
that's the only point that can really get under your skin, for me at least, also I'd keep the umpire stationed at the left It looks amazing. Also a full lawn on the grass court.

Did u host an online game or join an online game ?
Before to do that, u played some matches in the World Tour ?


I am not sure if I hosted or not. I think it was against Zuzana which would mean I hosted. And yes, I had played some matches in the World Tour right before I played the match.

I just tested it, and yes. I played a match in world tour, then played an online match where I hosted, and then played a world tour match where I had the same stats as the online match so all of my strokes were stronger etc. But it also made the computer better at everything as well. So they had a lot more power too.

Hey Manu, great game by the way... i found a bug in world tour, while you finish playing a tournament, and you choose to go to the next one, you are supposed to be able to add experience points during training right before your next tournament... So the bug is that i am able to add them but after clicking DONE, if I go back to see my player page, the experience points that i added previously didn't work... and it stayed to the original experience points that i had at the start of the game.

There is also a suggestion: is it possible to add the olympic game once 4 years?

thx :D

@World Tour's testers :
Version updated :
- there's a nasty random crash, so I added some debug information ; hopefully, it'll help me to locate the crash when u'll send the next "System.log"
- Training results are now saved
- Once u played online, the online skills normalization was still on, even when going to play in the World Tour ; it is now fixed
- Translation done for : French, Italian & Spanish (if u can translate the 220 missing sentences for German => need about 1 hour, let me know..!)
- Some part of the players outfit were changing each time u loaded the game...


@solarisaint :
I just got several crash reports from u, so u correctly updated to the yesterday version, but the bug is still there.
The crash happened 3 times on my PC, but when I tried to look the details, it didn't happen again in more than 25 attempts, so I'm a bit stuck... So u should dl the today version which contains new information for the System.log ...

>> Fault announce
I think u can delete the "Sound\Fault.wav" & "Sound\Out.wav" if it really annoys u... (or replace them with a sound of ur choice)


@Tscott415 :
>> so all of my strokes were stronger
Thanks to ur report, I got the bug ! :)


@vaidisova :
Open the Tennis.ini, and try to add this line, under [Sound] :
SoftwareMixing = 1
U can also try to change this line, from :
PanChange = -1
to :
PanChange = 0
(it'll disable the stereo effect)


@Y7 :
>> Olympics
maybe I'll do it one day... :roll:


@zvonareva :
Your download got corrupted, u have to dl the game again to fix it.
If it happens again & again, it means something is wrong with ur connection or ur PC.

solarisaint, no I think ur saved game file was ok.
At 1st, it crashed 2 or 3 times after have lost R1 of German F1 (ie: after 2 matches instead of 1 for u, I guess), but after that, I reloaded it, and I could go on with ur game for many weeks without any trouble... Thus, I wasn't able to locate the bug... :?

Did u try to go on ur game with the version I just released a few hours ago ? (u can know it's the new version coz in the Tournament Selection screen, the Australian Open has the new court icon)

Manutoo,

I have noticed when playing with different computers that I get varying degrees of angles from one computer to another. Is this because of the keyboards? I use the keyboad on each computer. When I play online matches, I am often amazed by the angles some players can get, whereas I can have plenty of preparation time and also have correct position and just can't seem to hit cross court very much many times. Sometimes I can hit a fast strike to the opponent and they can run to it and have enough preparation to hit an extreme cross court shot when there really wasn't much time to prepare. Is there a setting in my BIOS or in Windows or in the .ini files that I can adjust to have better results with whatever system that I am using?

Thanks!

Hmm, wonder if that bug with the online mode and attribute settings reflecting that could have resulted in the faster gameplay I was talking about?...I don't have that problem yet with very latest version, but I need to play more...
Few things, I think the Counter playing style comes to the net too often for CPU. It seems like he comes in on every other point. The trend nowadays is more baseline play, but I feel that other than the Defender and Power Baseline styles, the CPU comes way too much to the net. I understand it is supposed to a lot for Varied and Volleyer, but for Puncher and Counter, I still feel it comes to net as much as Volleyer sometimes. :?
And would it be possible to tone down the topspin on Defender profile? I actually liked it before without the added topspin, but I guess I understand that you wanted to add something to it...
In general, with higher topspin, the Nadal shot can really have unrealistic curve. Even with topspin set at 10% which is my setting, the curve seems just a bit excessive. And this is kind of made worse when combining it with the Defender style (with its built-in topspin).

Played in beginners after third match crash

Postby solarisaint » 28 Oct 2008, 18:52

Manutoo,
went into world tour,created male player after third match win, got the screen that says sunday 52 weeks then I crash, maybe its my computer. Im going to try again.
or maybe Im doing something wrong and the system is locking up. In an addition I dont think the testers crashes should be discussed in an open forum.
