Hi Manu, great work with the recent animation updates! They're looking fantastic.

I am wondering if you've considered adding a footwork talent or skill to the game? I was thinking it'd be a good idea because some players are better able to time their split and react to the opponent's ball better than others. The talent could work by giving the player a quicker first step in any direction after the opponent hits it.

I think one of the reasons this would be a good idea is to make it easier to run around the backhand for players who do this a lot, like Federer, Nadal, Tsitsipas, and Alcaraz. Right now the only skill that impacts that seems to be speed. But Federer, for instance, is not particularly fast but has great footwork that lets him run around the backhand a lot. If not a general footwork skill, maybe there could just be an "Inside-out forehand" skill or something that helps with this specific movement.

I'm curious to hear what you think! Thanks!

Andynator7,
the positioning skill also helps a bit for that ; but it's in absolute value, so the difference between players isn't too big. Maybe I could set it relative to the Speed, so it'd give a bonus/handicap and thus would have a bit more visible effect at any level.

Re: Tennis Elbow 4 - Early Version Roadmap

Here are some suggestions:
1. Texture and colour of audience seats in the stadium can be improved(for ex- Australian open should have blue seats and french open seats are different). It will just improve the appearance of stadiums in general
2. Maybe introduce other anti-aliasing settings as some stadiums can have jaggy graphics despite putting all settings to max
3. Maybe implement a ballboy running and picking up balls animation along with the programmed ball thrower which you already planned

-Add the possibility of seeing the repetitions of the points by pressing a key/button (that is, when you finish a point, for example, press and on the gamepad and the repetition of the other point appeared)

-Possibility to record repetitions of the points

-Possibility of uploading played points to the cloud to be able to share them with other players

-Remove online achievements because there is hardly any online community. Very few people play online

Hello, thank you very much for your answer. It would be great if you added the possibility to request the replay with the gamepad keys as well (for example by pressing the Y button at a certain moment). And it would also be great to be able to save replays.

Congratulations, I think your game is fantastic

Hi, Manu

I wish TE4 can add some Lucky Loser places for high-ranking players but lost in QR3. I often feel frustrated when my ranking is very close to entering the main draw. If you'd like to set 0-4 lucky losers for every tournament, I will be more motivated to play qualifications. :) :)

What's more, about 1/6 country's Chinese translations are irregular, like Italy, Australia, New Zealand, N.Ireland, Senegal, Ghana...

jonny,
You can assign a controller button to the Replay in Settings -> Controls -> Shortcuts.

And thanks. :)

Maybe in the future add the possibility of modifying the acceleration shot. I think this shot is too fast and makes the game too fast. Maybe in a separate setting, have the ability to adjust the power level and accuracy of just this specific shot, or maybe just make it slightly less powerful.

Hi Manu, are you planning on adding ambient crowd and environment sounds between points? I realise it's probably not a priority but I think it would aid immersion. Anyway, loving what you've done with the game so far!

I hope to do so, but it's not sure.

One thing I'd really like is the ability to select the number of games needed to win a set for different tournament levels. So for example, we might decide to play 4 games per set, 3 set matches for games up ATP 500 level, but for ATP 1000 up it to 6 game sets, and then Grand Slams of course to 5 set matches. Two 4-game or 3-game sets would be preferable to me for minor tournaments than playing a single set to 6, because it requires you to break your opponent twice, rather than just once.

Currently, we can configure the number of sets at each level, but the number of games is tucked away in the options, applies to all tournaments, and has to be manually adjusted if we want to change it for different events. It can be easily forgotten, too.

I think it would be great if we can choose an outfit for the player from the Character sheets, given that now there's no fixed number into how many players you can choose for practice/match, having the same for outfits would be awesome! Imagine the possibilities with all the mods!! Ideally the outfit should also have the player's stats, imagine choosing a young long hair Rafa with the stats of his youth, and be able to have the 2022 Rafa with his outfit and stats, it would be great for matches and the world tour, as you progress you'll see the players evolve as well

Hi Manu,

I had an idea for what could go in the "What would you like to see here?" box in the character sheets screen. What if in that box there was documentation that explained what each of the stats, talents, and playstyles does? Maybe you could make it so that when you hover over a skill or something, the box displays text that explains what that skill does. This would make the game a bit more user-friendly (which I know you're thinking about right now) and you could just use the existing documentation for it.
