Stoilov,
maybe try Fastspring, then choose Paypal as payment, and then create a Paypal account and add your card in it (then delete it afterward if you don't want Paypal keeping it :blackeye: ).
It's also possible that Paypal supports payment from your bank account.

Can you add some more pro player shot animations, some more recent ones, these are all from te2013. And a shot clock of 10 sec would be nice to have so we don't argue when someone takes a lot of time between points.

Stoilov,
1) I'm going to take a wild guess and say you were not impressed by TE2013 after 1 hour on it... :blackeye:
You can tell your 1st impression and comments after more play on this topic : topic15-31984.php .

2) The Modders will take care of new anims (hopefully !).

3) Online, after 12 seconds, the players are forced to serve.

I know the modders will do it, but will you add them to the vanilla version? Also will there be option to choose night or day match?

If the Modders let me add their creations, sure I'll do it.
Yes, it'll have night sessions for several stadiums.

Not impressed? You do realize that Manutoo is doing all this tremendous work completely alone, right? Appreciating all the effort and the sacrifice he has put through these years, it's the minimum for us, otherwise you can try the arcade tennis games around and been satisfied with them..

Hello Manutoo

With the main tour events starting to embrace electronic line calling, will you consider removing line umpires?

I appreciate you've updated all the line umpire models so probably want to show them off but line umpires are becoming a thing of the past :D

Guest2077,
tennis-wise, I'm like Federer : traditionalist. So it might take me a few decades before I accept to replace the line judges with some horrible <<beeeeeeep>>. :blackeye:

I’m still unsure how you will be able to put the Hawk-Eye in TE4...

Will you introduce a margin error from the linesman calls so you can challenge ?

Tennis Elbow is not your typical tennis game. There is no arcade nonsense where every player can get the ball back like Novak in his prime, or where the AI never hits an un/forced error or misses a first serve, or where you have to press a button to get 'perfect' timing.

Tennis Elbow is a hardcore simulation of tennis. It takes hours of dedication to get better. So many people overlook this series, which has produced the best tennis game ever made, because there's a steep learning curve and they haven't the patience to git gud. It took me over 400 hours to 'master' TE2013, but when I did, every ace and winner felt a million times better than it did on any other tennis game ever.

This game is in EA and it's still better than any tennis game out there right now. The animations, and courts, and players are not important right now. Getting the balance of the game is. All that flashy stuff can be added later. If you haven't the patience to wait, buy TE2013, download Maxou's patch, and play the best tennis game ever made while you wait.

Ahh I see!

Is there currently any way to remove the line judges from 3D Courts? Either in TE4 or 2013?

Honestly I wasn't too at first, until I tried to understand a bit the gameplay and the mandatory positioning. Yes there is "bugs" this is Alpha!
This game is hard and that's why I like it for now, like others games I play. All the best games are easy to learn and difficult to master.

PS:
I'm not even a hardcore/real Tennis fan (I just play recreational level IRL). I generally like hardcore sport video games.
Also, I played previous TE versions (2D) in 2005/2006 but I wanted something new since the "very old" Top Spin 4.
