1.Will there be improvements in player foot movements (steps, runs)?
2.Will there be strikes struck at the last moment?
Thank you in advance for the answers :D

scarecrow,
I guess you're talking about the animations.
I'd like to improve them in a general way, but I can't make any promise right now as it requires to produce new animations and I'm not sure how I'm going to handle that for now... :fear:

franke,
from 1st post :
In Short:
When : hopefully a pre-Alpha near January 2019, a decent Alpha version around June 2019, and the v1.0 around June 2020, but nothing is sure for the moment


If you mean Steam Early Access, it's undecided for the moment, but the Alpha will be available on Mana Games website.

yes, TE4 will still support 2D courts.

Talking about this last information, i think you could to modify the way to adapt the angle lines when we want to add a new court, i mean through a capture of a match as i have made many times, because sometimes i find impossible adjust these angles with a picture i think you can understand what i tell you.

I have many screenshots of challenger courts, but i have had problems with angles where it has been impossible adjust, it's for this that i mention to you if you could fix this for TE4.

Thanks.

1SF4LM,
for me, it was not the most important thing to do ; the most important thing was to work on the realism and it's already done and well done in TEM2... :yes: (still need some tuning & improvements, though :blackeye: )
2nd most important thing is to improve the visuals in a general way, but for the animations, it's unfortunately very complicated so I can't promise anything.

wilddog79,
I'll add a 2-point configuration : you'll just tell where is the top left corner & the bottom right corner of the lines and the game will calculate the camera position automatically.
If I forget to do it, ask me again once the 2D courts will be moddable in TE4..! :yes:

Sali_O296,
here you go ! :dance:

Everything looks absolutely awesome. Thanks manutoo!!
Just one question: what are the ideal PC graphic card and processor requirements for TE4?

CHAPI,
I'm not 100% sure, but with 2D courts at 1920x1080, you'll likely need around 1000 points here : https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/mid_range_gpus.html ; so that's a mid-range 2008 3D gamer card, or a low-range 2012 3D gamer card, or a 2015 IGP.

With 3D courts at 1920x1080, count around 5000 points here for the recommended specs (not the minimum) : https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html ; it's a 2013 mid-range 3D gamer card, or a 2016 low-range 3D gamer card. (IGP not supported ;) )

Will I be ok with an Intel HD 3000 IGP?
Tour Mod.

Tour issues by PM or Skype.
If you don't add me nor send me a PM, you might see your chances reduced. Inform me about anything that might have went on with your matches BEFORE deadlines, otherwise, decisions won't be changed.

Algo,
it's unlikely, except maybe with minimal settings. But even so, the game might require DirectX 11 which is not supported by older IGP like yours.
