I liked the longer service motion you had in the last build. Coz sampras rocked back a little. Now it looks a little less like him and more like Roddick. And for the new forehand and backhand motions, could you try to make the initial backswing a bit faster/more fluid? It seems a little slower compared to the original animations. Just when the player is taking his racquet back before he hits the ball.
Sorry to see the acceleration bonus is gone for higher balls. I wish you could just remove it for online play (if some people are taking advantage of it), and keep it for play against CPU.

Yeah, Manu...put the "rocking" back in Sampras' serve preparation... :?
It just ain't Sampras without it!! 8-)
(Besides, there wasn't anything wrong with one you had)... :roll:

I haven't played Davis Cup/Fed cup since the new update, but did you change it where the host can choose the surface? And that we can choose not the play a match when the tie is decided. (I don't like to play the match when I don't have to, and don't want to lose by retirement because that hurts my stats.)

I'm agree :wink:
And also Manu, did you fix that bug that counts your matches in Davis Cup as a title?

groundstrokes will be better with 100 in precision and 80 in power?

Nevermind. I found out they only appear when the advanced options are turned on.

@Brad1981 & btaylor :
I don't understand what u mean by "rocking"... I just checked, and I don't see any difference between the 2 versions, except the last one is faster... :sweat:

I won't change the pace of the new strikes, I think they are more correct than the old ones, actually.
The acc bonus isn't totally gone, it's still there when the ball is descending..! (and on slow speed ball, that are raising)


@jenks10s :
No other changes have been made than the ones listed.


@Santiago92 :
I couldn't reproduce the bug, and no one sent me his saved game before the bad count, so for me, there's nothing to fix... :unsure:


@tati cornet :
It was already the case for the Short Strike, I just amplified the effect, so much that it was faster than the short acc ; so I also added it a bit to the short acc, but it's only a bonus of 5km/h, so actually, the 100% pow & 100% precision Short Acc is still a bit faster than the 80% pow & 100% precision one (about 1 or 2 km/h faster).

Well, I'm not sure yet, but I think I love the new update, it's more realistic and eventually more fun than the previous version. Only bad thing is, I have no idea how to play and that's a bad thing in the middle of the RG tournament! LOL Just have to pray...lol

Manu, the bug of simulated match time on World Tour mode is not still fixed. I resumed a match and then open it to continue and it showed me the time I played really, but not the simulate match time, even when I have set it on.

Santiago92, u need to have a saved match from the latest build for the resume to work correctly.
Also, I got ur saved game, but actually I'd need one just before a Davis Cup match that will lead to a wrong counting in the Streak Stats.

Mmm if I play US Open and then Davis Cup semifinal, you mean I have to send you the saved game after US Open?

Manu, I think there's something wrong on my World Tour.

When I have to go out without finishing a match, I press "X" at the top of the screen. When I want to continue the match, it shows me the real time and not the simulated.

And also, it seems I'm playing with the old animation, and I can't change the animation from 1/2 to 2/2 on World Tour :(
