First of all, I'm glad you're almost done with the work in your house Manu! That means one problem less to worry about :)

I'm super glad about what's coming! Other developers would just move on from animations at this point but you keep working on them, they already improved a LOT but it's REALLY nice to hear that you'll keep on working! The game is great as it is now but you keep pushing forward in the most important things on a tennis game: AI strategy and animations, AMAZING! I'm sure that modding and other small nice to haves like commentaries will come but I'm glad you're still working on the core elements.

To everyone reading this: I never preordered a game in my life but I'm super glad I did. Yes, I'd like for a faster development but considering it's a solo operation it's acceptable and he really understands what a tennis game should be

Fed1,
yes, from the comments on TE4 so far, it's pretty clear that the animations are the most important part of the visuals, even if the modeling quality matters as well... :blackeye:

How lovely to see you back on track, Manu. And this new update is just fantastic. What a way to start a year!

Did you get the bug report I sent you days ago? Just hoping there's a way to fix that statistics reset issue...

I wish you and your family all the best :)

dongtaipo,
thanks !

I didn't get a new Bug Report from you since the last one we talked about, so I guess you should send it again. :fear:

I don't understand -- was my comment in this thread a few days ago deleted?

I didn't think it was disrespectful or without merit. I actually said I loved the new sliding system and suggested one addition (if possible).

Little bit confused.

Hi Manu, from your last entry on the blog I'm assuming that the Motion Matching system will be worked on after 1.0 (Congrats on 0.50 by the way, major milestone!!)? That video shows some promise but as you said, there's some work left to do.
If that's the case, What can we expect next? From what I read I believe you're going for the stadiums, but not really sure.

Going back to the Motion Matching system, Is there some economic barrier? You mentioned that you'd probably need an animator, which I can imagine it's not exactly cheap (as it shouldn't) so I'm just wondering if this puts the motion system more as a Wishlist rather than a reality considering the financial situation here.

Thanks and keep it up!! Game has achieved a lot already and the best part is that this will continue to get better!

Fed1,
yes, the Motion Matching will be done after v1.0 ; it might be several months of work to put it in place.
BTW, v1.0 = start to port the game to consoles, not the end of development (except if the game really stop selling or other bad things :fear: )

I have a decent budget for improving the anims, although I'm not sure how much it'd cost to clean a lot of motion-captured anims, so it may be a bit tight ; I probably could do it by myself, but I'd rather spend my time of other stuff. I'll see when I'll get there.

The next step is the stretching anims, as pointed out in the post... :)
