Skipped weeks in world tour?

Postby sphanlon » 15 Feb 2009, 21:26

You know that message that says because of your ranking you have to play in a certain tournament or not play at all that week? I've gotten it a lot but never had trouble with it. This time after RG I got the message re: Wimbledon(UK Open). So I chose to participate, but it skipped to that tournament and past the tune-up tournaments. I've never had that message cause the calendar to skip ahead like that. Was that supposed to happen?

EDIT: What the hell? It did it again. After Wimbledon, it said I had to go to the Montreal Masters and then it skipped 6 weeks ahead to that tournament. What's wrong?!

Hello,

u likely chose a tournament on next year so the game is advancing & skipping all weeks, except the ones where u have a forced tournament...

I know I definitely did not. Did the game glitch on me?

it's possible... But I guess it'll probably fix by itself on the following year, before RG or Wimbledon...

I don't get it. I certainly didn't look that far ahead on the calendar so it is impossible I selected a tournament that far ahead in the future. It's got to be the game. I don't want to skip these tournaments. Must be a bug. Please look into it. I never peeked ahead more than a couple weeks on the tournament selection calendar. Doesn't that mean a selection that would have caused this was impossible to have happened other than a glitch?

my "it's possible" was "it's possible it's a glitch"... ;)

Also, u don't have to go far ahead to select a tournament on next year, u just have to go 1 week up ; ie: the tournament selection shows Week 20, u go up to Week 19 & select a tournament, it'll be on next year, coz Week 19 is already past for the current year.

But right now, if the game tells u that u have to enter a tournament or not play at all, and u chose to enter it, do u actually enter it ?

That's it then? I have done that. I had thought selecting a previous tournament would show the draw and result. So the game interprets it as selecting to go to that tourney the next year? Crap. Isn't there any ini file or anything I can change to stop this? I especially want to play the Davis Cup, but all it stops for is Masters and Slams.

No, there's nothing u can do to fix this...
The only thing now is to look for the automatically saved games ; if you played only 2 tournaments since u chosen the tournament on next year, then u may still have a saved game just before the wrong selection...
