Tennis Elbow 2013 v1.0d [Windows]

Postby manutoo » 23 May 2014, 08:15

Hello,

Tennis Elbow 2013 v1.0d is released (Build 107-2014.5.23) :
http://www.managames.com/download.php?TE2013_fe10d.exe ~40MB [Permanent direct download link to the latest version]
http://toogame.free.fr/Files/TennisElbow2013.exe [Mirror site for people having corrupted download from managames.com - but not up to date all the time]

Patch for all demo versions since TE2011 v1.0f Build 90 => TE2013 v1.0d Build 109 - SubBuild 2014.5.27 : (download the Patch if you don't want to download the Demo again, or if you want to keep your current settings & Training Club Players ; World Tour saved games are always kept even when reinstalling the Demo)
http://www.managames.com/download.php?TE2013-Patch.exe ~8.3MB

New Features :
- New Strike Styles : a bunch of animations created by megyaem30 & emmainf, thanks to them !
- New Hair Styles : a ton of new hair styles for Male & Female created by miharu0607, thanks to him ! (some hairs don't fit well with hats) (1)
- .Dmo : added option to record extra debug info ; check [Record]RecordDebugInfo in your Tennis.ini ; this can help me to find desync bug, and there's a chance it'd help to lower desync on replay, but it makes the .dmo file ~40 times bigger
- Online : chats are now also logged locally in "Profiles/<NameOfYourProfile>/ChatLog"
- Modding / Sound : you can now change what announce & applause sound the engine is playing by removing ".Mod" from "Menu/InGameAnnounce.Menu.Mod" and then editing the file to your needs (this file contains an example of how it's done)
- Modding : engine can now automatically update CPU players' outfit in World Tour, according the current year & week (more info => topic29-17866.php )
- Modding : it is now possible to use custom skins for the chair umpire, line judges, ball boys & camera man in the 3D courts (check GameSys.ini to see how it's done)

Changes :
- Gameplay : topspin limit when hitting a topspin strike on raising ball has been slightly raised when the topspin skill is high
- Gameplay : Overall Energy lowering rate tuned => slower when fully rested, faster when at medium range
- Gameplay : tiredness & rest rates slightly tuned
- Gameplay : Instant Energy rest rate between points raised by up to 10% when the Stamina skill is greater than the Speed skill, up to +20%
- Gameplay : greatly raised the Instant Energy rest rate when not moving during a point while very low on IE (this is still rather slow regen rate, though :blackeye: )
- Gameplay : B1 smash speed raised by 5km/h
- Gameplay : Safe shot on half volleys is now longer & slower, thus it's easier to make a passing shot out of it
- Physics : ball bounce of net tuned, now it sometimes goes more high
- AI : a good bunch of tuning, changes & fixes for the CPU shot selection, aiming & positioning in doubles
- AI : CPU now takes a bit less risk at the net when playing with Elites control ; ie: it aims less close of the lines, thus it'll do less faults
- AI : CPU positions itself better on return of serve and it can take the ball on the raise, so it's not possible to ace it anymore with a slow 2nd kicked serve, plus it does better returns of 2nd serves in a general way
- AI : CPU just learned it got a bit slower to run back ;) (this will help the CPU to do better positioning on deep balls)
- Sound : crowd applause rules tuned
- World Tour : when you lose, before to show you the End of Week Qualies selection screen, the engine now waits for your opponent to lose in Singles, so he'll be available to play doubles qualies with you ; if he doesn't lose early enough, you'll still see the qualies selection screen like before
- Online : reputation choice is validated instead of cleared when going into chat from end of match screen

Bug fixes :
- Gameplay : too much balls were catching the net when playing the short strike or the short acceleration when standing far from the baseline ; now, most of this kind of ball will get a better net clearance (that should also applies on some volleys)
- World Tour : carrier end wasn't working correctly and was leading to a crash right away in 2028 or if you went on playing on other years
- Modding : the game couldn't find .3ds files inside the Mods folder (if they were not inside a .pak file)
- Online : fixed a couple of things that could lead to desync ; one of this thing is related to animation, thus the engine will update any created .anim it'll find outside of .Pak file (.anim within .Pak file won't be updated ; there's about 0.001% chance this particular point will actually fix some desyncs, so if you don't update your .anim, it's ok :blackeye: )

Notes :
(1)- How to add new hairs to your already Modded game => viewtopic.php?p=188904#p188904
- Changelog of previous versions is here : topic15-15603.php
- Mac OSX & Linux versions will be released soon
- Comments : topic15-17938.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...

Build 108, May 24th:

New Features :
- Modding / Camera : you can now use the settings of the 2D camera of your Modded Court.ini, and if that court doesn't define any camera, then the 2D camera settings from Tennis.ini, by setting [Camera]Custom to 1 ; Changing Aperture, or Height, or Camera Mode will reset Custom to 0 when [Camera]AutoClearCustom is 1
- Modding / World Tour : you can have 1 Tour.ini per year as long as the changes are only secondary (more info here => topic29-17924.php )

Changes :
- Gameplay : net clearance tuned so most strikes are back to what they were pre-Build 107
- Gameplay : twist serve maximum topspin lowered by 5% when there's also a lot of sidespin
- Modding / World Tour : Outfit week selection enhanced (check here for new options => topic29-17866.php )

Bug Fixes :
- World Tour : fixed a crash that could appear when there was not enough players in a draw, and your player had to select an end of week qualification draw

Notes :
- Comments : topic15-18000.php

Build 109, May 27th:

New Features :
- Menu : new version notification will now have a link to download the patch (when your version can use it)

Changes :
- Physics : net bounce tuned again, it was bouncing too high, especially on fast balls
- Gameplay : rest rate during rally was too high, making almost impossible to reach the stronger tiredness states (1)
- Gameplay : safe strike isn't too deep anymore
- Gameplay : ball difficulty on volleys & smashes globally lowered by 5%
- AI : CPU now takes less risk on return of serve, so it'll do less ball near the lines and less faults

Bug Fixes :
- Stats : the in-game stat for number of strikes were totally wrong

Notes :
(1)- The idea is that once your Instant Energy bar is at 0, it becomes very risky to do an acceleration ; if you don't do any acceleration and don't run too much for a few shots, your IE bar will replenish a bit and it'll let you do again an acceleration without too much penalty

The Joker,
it depends how high it is exactly, and how fast it is.

Manutoo, i appreciate the changes you made for this new build. A good version in many aspects.
There are many good fixes in doubles. I see the CPU partner does a great job now. However i want to report an error which occurs regularly. It's not from my CPU partner but it's about me. When i hit slice volley(with more time) it goes too deep and becomes an error. I did 13 volley errors and of which i believe all are by slice volleys going too deep and out. It's not like i hit them without any precision(because there is no red signal when i hit that error). It's generally a green zone error which really is annoying. It's probably the easiest shot at net but many of those shots end up as errors. Here's the .dmo file which i played with CPU(incredible) doubles team.
So please check it and fix that bug because i aim it with green zone precision and yet it goes out most of the time. It's funny that i do better short slice volleys which go "in" than these normal slice volleys.
Even though my team won the match, i am not satisfied with doubles because of this slice bug. Also some issues are still unsolved but i appreciate some big changes you did in doubles. A very good update :thumbleft:
These errors occurred after following points:
0-0(40-30)
2-0(00-00,00-15,00-40)
2-1(0-15,30-40,40-AD)
2-2(30-0)
4-2(15-15,15-30)
4-3(15-0,40-30)
4-4(00-00)
Almost all of my volley errors are these safe slice normal volleys.

The camera bug is still present, it doesn't look up (topic5-17612.php). It only doesn't work online, but offline works.

Tene,
it didn't change since very long time, it has nothing to do with v1.0d. I just checked and yup, it's a tiny bit too long. I'll fix that in next Build, but it might not come before a long time.

JasonBourne,
I checked again & still couldn't reproduce the bug ; the camera zoomed out on both host & client to see the ball.

Yeah it was in previous versions too. Thanks for the reply. Hope you could fix it sometime soon. Looking forward for it :D

This version has ruined the game. I can't hit winners and I have 3 times more errors now. Either do something about this or I want my money back.
