Tennis Elbow 2013 v1.0f [Mac & Linux]

Postby manutoo » 28 Jan 2015, 08:14

Hello,

Tennis Elbow 2013 Mac & Linux v1.0f are released (Build 113-2015.1.28) :
OSX : http://www.managames.com/download.php?T ... c_fe1f.zip [Permanent direct download link to the latest version]
Linux : http://www.managames.com/download.php?TeLinux_fe1f.zip

/!\ Warning:
- when you update to a newer version, you have to transfer the "Profiles" subfolder from your previous TE2013's directory to the new installation folder to keep your saved games ; do not overwrite your current game folder with the new one, else you'll lose your saved games (they might end in the bin, so still in recoverable state, though). Copy over your "Key.Txt" as well. Then launch the game & select your Profile if you had created one.

New Features :
- World Tour : rankings & career's end wall of fame stats updated to beginning of 2015 (6)

Changes :
- Gameplay : in some cases, the safe strike done while running forward will lead to a faster & longer ball that can end fault (1)
- Gameplay : racket reach has been slightly increased when running to the sides, to match the run animation that makes the player bends a bit forward
- Gameplay : defender style gets a better shoulder height acceleration, especially when charging long time, but it's still less good than the one of Power Baseliner and Puncher styles
- Gameplay : shoulder height bonus is now also applied to the short acceleration (2)
- Gameplay : short strike & short acceleration precision significantly enhanced when the opponent is at the net (3)
- Gameplay : volley jump reach has been lowered a bit on clay, especially for volleyer style
- Gameplay : volley acceleration & short acceleration difficulty significantly lowered (4)
- Gameplay : strike speed handicap on difficulty ball for the acceleration & short acceleration slightly lowered when the consistency skill is high (5)
- AI : CPU handles better the situation when its opponent does a safe strike following by a net rush
- AI : CPU does slightly better passing shots (ie: it tries to aim farther from its opponent)
- AI : CPU covers a bit more its back when running back to the center (and a tiny bit less the opposite side), so it's a bit harder to wrong-foot it
- AI : CPU lobs less often, except if its opponent is very close of the net
- AI : CPU volley quality noticeably raised ; ie: its reach isn't better than before, but if it hits the ball, it'll do less faults and better volleys
- Menu : Alt-Tab doesn't create issue anymore

Bug fixes :
- AI : CPU wasn't stepping in if needed on return of serve, and thus could easily be aced by slow sliced serves
- World Tour: players weren't wearing white/grey for UK Slam

Notes :
(1)- it's a kind of big change, let me know if it leads to some bad side effects or exploits ; the effect is smaller when reaching for a dropshot, but it can still happen
(2)- although, it might be not much helpful, except in some rare cases on clay, and maybe on some 1H-backhand passing shots
(3)- so now, when you're correctly positioned, the precision of these strikes is the best one (by a very small amount, though), but when mispositioned the normal strike & acceleration usually still produce a better result
(4)- hopefully, that should compensate for the better passing shots
(5)- it means if you hit inside the Danger Zone, you'll get 2 or 3 km/h less slow strikes
(6)- Players' career length hasn't been changed to avoid invalidating your current saved games, so some players still disappear in 2015 ; if you want to play with them, you can easily extend their career before to begin a new career, by Modding the game => topic29-4059.php
- Changelog of previous versions is here : topic15-19267.php

peteypan,
ouch ! As I was getting ton of crash reports for the player.ini loading, I had to change it a bit to enhance the bug report ; but unfortunately I misplaced 1 line which means the auto outfit didn't work correctly anymore...
I just fixed it for the Windows version. I'll try to update the Mac version next week..!
(for the side story, it turned out that the crash was happening only when the player.ini was missing its [WT_Static] section, and thus it makes me wonder how many people are butchering their Players.ini ... :shock: )

cafoldean34,
what link are you talking about ? If it's the link to download the demo, it's your computer that's probably preventing you to download .zip files or something like that.
