mike3,
it works same than TE2013 (in case you have already played it).
Go to your Character Sheet, and when the player is set to Human instead of CPU (on bottom left), click on the "Controls" icon there you can set up everything.
For example, you can follow this configuration : topic15-29252.php .

I've been playing tennis elbow in the past and now I'd like to come back to him. I'm waiting impatiently for TE4. Thank you very much!

Hi, I tried the new physics, I love it, it's so rich and make the gameplay so far away from arcade.. well, what a job with realism these last years !

I like the fact that the ball goes more up & down considering the timing and positioning , we put it more in the net if we are not precise - which was rare in TE2013.
The accelerations now are really accelerations : we can successfully accelerate only if we have time, and when we do it really tricky for the opponent. So, the "acceleration" button will not replace the "normal shot" button anymore.
The serve has more importance than before.
Slices have nice & rich directions.

I just see one or two things stranger than before :
I'm not sure but I feel that a.i slices are very hard to catch, and often make a winner, which I rarelly see in real tennis (except Federer at Wimbledon :lol: ).
And maybe the hitbox is sometimes too large specially with defensive player, maybe it could be replaced by easier run or positioning (tonicity, auto-positioning ...) (am I clear enough?..) but it's only visual so its not so important.

One question : will the new physics & a.i be in the last TE2013 upgrades? I have a cheap laptop and I'm not sure TE4 will work on it..
:bounce:
Thanks !

n3n3ss,
as the changes are radical, they are meant for new games, not for existing ones... ;)
Maybe your laptop will be able to run the final version of TEM2 if it can't run TE4, if you don't mind the deeper management part.

Hello!
What about the half volleys (or low volleys) in TE4?
They don't work well in TE2013

Nicholas,
they don't work well in real life as well... ':D

Half-volleys and low volleys are 2 very different things.

It's possible to do half-volleys with the safe strike on slow incoming balls (ie: more or less like real life), although there it gets pretty hard to aim left/right (especially online).

For the low volleys, I'm not sure where we stand currently... :fear:

Hi manutoo, if I pre-order TE4, I would have access to the beta? if so, what is the deadline for pre-ordering? and when is the beta coming out?

PS: Sorry for my english google translation, you can answer me in french lol

titi60,
pre-ordering will become ordering as soon as the Alpha is out, as at that point people will be buying something playable... :)
The 10% discount may or may not survive the Alpha release, but it'll be there during Prototype phase (ending around the end of July, hopefully).

Pre-ordering will give you access to everything. Not pre-ordering will give you access to the demo, but only once I'll be comfortable to release publicly the game (ie: maybe I'll wait for the new 3D players to arrive, to not give a bad 1st impression to people new to the TE world).

PS: there's a french section in this Forum to ask questions in French : forum21.php ... ;)

You really need to work 90% of your time to implement new gameplay for volleys, half volleys and low volleys. Everything is great in TE13 except this :twisted: Perhaps check super tennis on SNES for inspiration as it handles pretty well these stuff despite being an arcade old game.

obdz,
likely not ; you can buy US$110 3D card and it should be then ok ; this model seems the best choice : https://www.newegg.com/powercolor-radeo ... 6814131732 ; maybe it'd be better to take one from a better brand, but then it's a bit more expensive.
