Broke CPU spirit (maybe bug with backhand animation, also)

Postby CC » 15 Feb 2010, 08:33

ManuTOO,

I have a question about the CPU "mentality." Sometimes "she" (it) plays as if I crushed her spirit -- broke her will. After I broke her in the match to be able to serve for the match when I smacked her drop shot, she seemed to have fallen apart. I hit I think three aces when I served for the match in the next game, and really it seemed that she had given up. :thumbleft: Am I imagining this, or did you program something like this into the game? :scratch: It is so realistic.

Oh, there may be a slight animation bug. My player's upper and lower torso seem oddly twisted as I hit this backhand winner to win the 6th game (to make the score 5-1). I think that maybe my player stepped with the wrong foot at first into the backhand and then this was corrected with the completion of the strike, but you may want to see it:

Absolutely true, even with incredible sub 5 (very tough for me) I win easily... :?

Yup, the level of play of CPU can change over a few points, but it's not really a very evolved system... :blackeye:

About torso twist, yup, it still can happen when u move/run in the opposite direction of the swing ; there's not much I can do about it for now... :unsure:

Maybe you haven't "evolved" it much, but sometimes I think it is alive (evolving on its own). Not long ago I asked why the CPU player never uses the jumping gesture. Well, that day or next I played a hard match with CPU (a male player in World Tour), and I jumped at the end of a hard game that I won. That wasn't a good idea. The CPU played harder and better in the next game, and on the last point of that game, which it won, jumped just as I had. That is the only time this gesture has been used by the CPU player with me so far, but it was almost scary (it's alive!)!
:applause: :applause: (and apparently it reads the forum :fear: :roll: )

:lol: :lol:

I saw the CPU jump one time, in World Tour, after winning a tough second set (I had won the first).

About the CPU spirit: I sometimes wonder if some CPU players are more fair-play than others. Some never spend an applause against me, and others are very generous with that gesture. Funny AND realistic. :P
