I try to find some videos of alpha gameplay, but i cant. Is there any on Youtube or anywhere else? I have original tennis elbow and i plan to buy this one, but i would really love to see new gameplay, physics, and everything.

you'll see a few videos there, mostly showing bugs that have been fixed : topic15-31985.php?start=195 ... :)
Note: the game changes almost every month, so it's not much good to do a presentation video before it's more stable. :fear:

Hi,

Maybe a stupid question here but I'm having a problem running TE4 on my Mac as it says that TE4 can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. Is there any way to fix this?

Question,
go to System Preferences > Security and Privacy > General, then you should see an option to open the game.

Hi Manu,

I wanted to ask some stuff about animations.

When will we be able to start creating and importing into TE4?

How will the process be for converting TE3 animations into TE4?


Thanks! I am loving the progress so far.

rharm2,
1) Really not sure ; some time next year... :) (I'll know a bit more after the online mode will be there, as I'll define new priorities at that point)

2) It's explained here : viewtopic.php?p=259475#p259475 (Kid Interlude's over paragraph)

Hi,
I recently purchased TE4, and am loving it so far. The only concern I have is regarding player's reach. As the game is mainly based on proper positioning, I felt the need for a longer lunging or sliding animation. I think if it was added to the game, the length rally in case of certain points will increase and the matches will become more intense. The current reaching animation feels somewhat curtailed.
Also, are you planning to add animations for inside out points?

Anyways, the game feels really good regardless of it. Sorry for my bad English.

anrox335,
sliding animations are planned, but not inside out ones.

Hello Manutoo,

I know you are working hard on the PC version, but do you work to on the Xbox and Switch version too?
And after listen your interview, do you find the way to share the contents between the platform ? And if yes, will they all be in (outfits, courts, animations....)
And for those who haven’t TE4 in alpha/bêta, can you show us some points for see a little the game?

Thank you

Guest,
I'll start to work on porting the game to consoles when the PC version will be done.

You'll see a few videos there, mostly showing bugs that have been fixed : topic15-31985.php?start=195 . (there's really no point doing videos now when the gameplay & visuals evolve every couple of months)

hi manatoo...with the latest update it is not possible to play the world tour because when you start a new session, it locks on the "manager" screen and you have to close the game

Danil,

If it's the match loading screen, read here => viewtopic.php?p=273390#p273390

Hey manutoo
is there a possibility to make players celebrate the points with grunts like "come on" or "vamos" or...
that would be really realistic idk if you thought about that
