Hi ,

in Elbow 2006 it was hard to win online game for me but now in Elbow 2009 it is impossible to beat most of them.
I don't understand few things :

1.does all the players have same skills for online matches ?
i feel like my opponents have better skills,stronger strikes,what ewer i do my opponent return the ball,
strike stronger...maybe cheating ???

2.can we change button configuration,for me b1+up should be topspin and b1+down short strike and b2+down should be drop shot insted of b2+up

3.in version 2006. x was curve strike,i can't get it don here in 2009.

4.does online skills depends on past games,on rating ?

5.sometimes i lose control of my keyboard controls,looks like they stuck and after few points they get back

6. 10 minutes for trial period is hardly enough to finish 1 set,takes longer then older version

Hello,

1- no, you can set your skills like u want.
By default, if playing in Fair Mode, u'll have 80% in all your skills.
But you can lower & raise some skills to get more powerful forehand, for example. To set your player exactly like it'll be in Fair Mode, go to the "Character Sheet", and configure it so u'll have 780 points left (in the middle down bar).

Lowering your topspin skill will also make u hit stronger acceleration.

2- Nope, u can't change this. But u can use a key/button for Topspin & slice (look for "CtrlExtraButton" under "[Menu]" in the "Tennis.ini" in your TE2009 directory)

3- X key is still working, but the curve is less strong

4- nope, else it wouldn't be fair for newcomers

5- try to use the key pad keys 4, 5, 6 & 8 instead of the arrow keys.
If a key seems blocked, pressing & releasing it should fix the problem.

6- That's 11min, and if it's too short, u're welcome to purchase the full version... ;)

hi manutoo,

thank you for answering but i still don't understand few things :

1- if i set all my skills to 100% and i enter online game so i would have all to 80% in FAIR mode ?

2- if i set skills to have 780 points left than in online game i would have unchanged skills ?

3- lowering topspin i don't see any change in points left

But u can use a key/button for Topspin & slice (look for "CtrlExtraButton" under "[Menu]" in the "Tennis.ini" in your TE2009 directory)

4- changed to 1,saved,restarted the game, but i don't see any new buttons in controls menu

5- i am using keypad,maybe it is blocking but i am not sure,i have to check it

6- every day i have to download 'new version' to be able to play online but it show always version 1.0 Is it a bug or really new versions ? Last update was 5.11. and i had to download today,yesterday...

i will buy the game soon i hope

keep up the good work :)

i

-yes it'll be like you set your skills to 80% so
-yes it won't change
-it is like that, to see if you downloaded the latest version look the credits for the build(now it's 17)


p.s: could you change your max ping for online to 250 ?i'd like to play with you, i've seen you many times only and if set to 250 we'll be able to play
lol

Hello deepdrunk,

3- having the topspin high or low has both its downsides & advantages, so it doesn't cost points to raise it or lower it

4- u must close the game before to edit the Tennis.ini

5- it's a software blocking, not a physical blocking (ie: the keyboard has trouble to signal multiple keys press/unpress at the same time)

Other questions have been correctly answered by the helpful Algo... :)
