low contrast between clay color and ball color

Postby Montefortino » 17 Mar 2015, 16:57

Hello,
For me it's more difficult to be able to see the ball when playing on clay courts.
In my opinion the contrast between clay court color and ball color should be higher.
I dont have the same problem on other courts.

Is it only a my problem ? :-)

I have the same problem. I have already forced sun back but it is still too bright to my like. Can't see the ball on clay clearly.

Markchan,do yuo mean that you changed brightness of monitor or modified any parameter in the game ? Maybe in advanced options in video settings ?

Montefortino,
MarkChan is talking about this => topic15-7377.php?start=0&hilit=ForceSunInBack

Personally, I don't have issue on clay once I force the sun in back ; the change is what trouble me most as I need about 1 game to get acclimated to change of lighting.

Optionally, you could raise a bit the ball size on clay, it might help.

Hi Manutoo, is there any way to make the clay court less bright? (I didn't use any modding)

I place the court.jpg into Tennis Elbow 2013\Data\court01

then play it.

even its ugly, but eyes feel more comfortable.

I had the same trouble with many courts so I changed many lines in the court.ini (for 3d court), Look at this for example:

[3dEngine] // Remove '/' & '*' at start of this line to set the Sun direction & color
StarU = 800
StarV = 255
StarR = 255
StarG = 192
StarB = 128
AmbiantR = 264
AmbiantG = 264
AmbiantB = 264/**/

mk8o,
you should change this file Data\Pak01.Pak\Data/Models/Textures/Ball.tga . See HowToMod from here to learn how to access the .pak file => topic29-4059.php .

MarkChan,
actually, it's possible to lower the brightness of the 2D court or the court texture in 3D stadium by changing Data\Pak01.Pak\Scripts/Tennis.Shader .

For the 3D texture, there's this :
Code: Select all
Court
{
   NoMipMap

   {
      map Data/Toto NoLoad
      AddressMode Clamp
//      rgbGen Fixed 0xFFCFCFCF
   }
}


Just need to change it to this :
Code: Select all
Court
{
   NoMipMap

   {
      map Data/Toto NoLoad
      AddressMode Clamp
      rgbGen Fixed 0xFFCFCFCF
   }
}


And can replace 0xFFCFCFCF by another darker color code.
