Serve-Return

Postby Rusty96 » 01 Feb 2015, 16:13

I just played with my brother. We both use gamepad and we both hit 40 aces. How can we return better? Auto positioning is on slow as we use itst mod...how can we auto pos anyway?

BTW: Is there any possibility the camera changes automatically the view of players at every change of ends so it is fair offline

What is meant with press the button down to activate auto position? Is it the move down to move backwards or do you mean I should press a shot button all the time? Does this really help when autopositioning is set on slow(standard in itst mod)?

BTW: Is this useful in rallies as well?

Press button down = press that button. Help or not, it depends of your own sensibility.

No.

Sorry, but I don't understand. Which button is "that button"? Is it for example the top spin button in 'Remap strikes' which I have to press or b1,b2 or is there an autopositioning button?

The thing with the camera does not work.The side option is not available on this path.Maybe it doesn't because of ITST mod?

Edit: I played a few online matches now and it is same like offline, I hit so many good shots the opponent gets everything but I am so much slower than all the opponents and with the autopositioning I tried every available button (b1,b2,b1+b1 don't work anyway)but my player doesn't move a centimeter.Maybe the joystick is not good for this game?

Every strike button triggers the auto-positioning.

Actually, it's "Play Options -> Camera -> Ends" . But I have no idea if it's in ITST or not.
But by default, when you play with 2 humans, you should have the split screen on, so there's no need to change the camera.

A joystick is not the best option ; a small stick is ok (like on PS3 & Xbox controller) and a pad is good enough. And in all cases, you also need light fast reflexes & a good understanding of the game to compete against good online players.

Maybe you should play a while without ITST ; you'll have a much easier time to learn all the game ropes...

Maybe ps4 controller does not work good in this game? I loss all my match online and offline, getting totally trashed allthough I feel I have better serve and groundstrokes than most opponents but once the hit a solid serve or groundstroke I can't get there. The autopositiong on serve does bot work with any button and I get to no drop shot as well even when I anticipate it early because my players are unbelievable slow.

It's possible that PS4 controller isn't great, but I'm not sure, should ask someone who plays with it.
Anyway, you can try to play a bit with the keyboard and see if you feel faster or not.
Maybe try to stand more far from the baseline, it might help you to catch more balls (but then your attacks won't be too good).

For autopos, check this video, maybe you'll understand better how it works => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVP2W0_dHzc .

On return i am back at the wall and in rallies i already tried to be 2-3 meters behind the baseline. I already watched the video and did exactly what was described but my player doesn't make the step like in the video.

Edit: I tested ps3 controller, isn't even possible to dp the setup with it. Also tried sytech rumble force gamepad but movement doesn't work with it either. Hardly get to balls, never got to a drop shot in this game by now. Maybe I am just too dilumb for this game. Don't know why I move so much slower than all others.

You need to install drivers for the PS3 controller to work.

Did you try with the keyboard ?

I just tried with keyboard. It's the same. I don't know what I do wrong but I just feel like because of the movement I can't compete. I receive aces and winners which are sometime not even good dhots all the time while my opponent get back everything. Even junior computer level trashes me.

I checked and you did 11 online matches. Of course, you're going to have problem against people who already played the game hundred of hours.
You should really take it easy at 1st and take your time to learn the game. Play a while with the Danger & Aiming preview against the CPU, then only the Danger Zone still against the CPU, then play online with the original game (ie: not ITST Mod) so you'll still have the Danger Zone, and you'll also have more chance to find low skilled players (tennis isn't much fun when playing against someone a lot stronger than your). After 50 or 100 hours of this, you should be able to get back to ITST.

I won 2 of this 11 matches and won about 90% of them just because of serve. The thing is that I often dictate the rallies as well but for the opponent 1 good shot is enough to hit a winner. I read that anyone here wins against junior but I loss 06 06 only because I just don't get to the balls. It's not that I would be wrong placed all the time. I often react fast and stand in the right corner but I am too slow still. So I can't really compete with players who are play as good shots as me just because I don't get the balls.
