SubBuild 2021.2.23:

Changes :
- Animation : the dynamic animation system takes now a bit more time to push your player to the ball, making the changes a bit smoother
- Menus : tuned a bit the Auto-Detection on the Video settings so it should work better for good IGPs and slow GPUs

Bug Fixes :
- Animation : the pelvis was incorrectly oriented for the women hitting on the run
- Controls : when a wheel or pedal was connected to the computer in addition to a normal controller, that normal controller could be ignored by the game instead of the wheel or pedal
- Menus : the video settings Auto-Detection was hiding the 3D player in the Character Sheet
- Rendering : racket string shadow was incorrect
- Modding : when using a 2D camera as a 3D camera, the camera wasn't correctly initialized, which could lead to weird camera movements

SubBuild 2021.2.28:

Changes :
- Player : the male player got ~4 cm longer legs and ~4 cm shorter upper-body

Bug Fixes :
- Online : when playing with a high delay, the opponent could move with a big delay (it was also likely happening on lower delay, creating wrong animations)
- Online : the prediction was failing for our player, it was mostly visible with high delay (I'm not 100% sure it's fixed ; it was likely a bug introduced in the previous SuBuild or the one before :fear: )
- Animation : the racket was misplaced in gestures where a left-handed player was holding his racket in his right-hand
- Animation : interpolation could lead to wrong positioning, especially on some service animations
- Animation : returner's head was misorientated at the start of the serve
- World Tour : it was possible to get 500 XP in 1 win

Build 50 - SubBuild 2021.3.2:

Changes:
- AI : the CPU now selects a bit better between volley & drive volley in extreme cases
- AI : the CPU is now more smart about deciding to rush back to the baseline or try to catch a ball far from him at the net (both against lobs & passing)

Bug Fixes:
- Online : the Skill Mode was always on Free
- AI : the CPU player could miss the ball when rushing the net despite being on it
- GUI : the stress bar was never going down (it was only a visual bug, the stress for the player was correctly handled internally)

Notes :
- MacOs version updated

Build 51 - SubBuild 2021.3.6:

Bug Fixes:
- Online : fixed a possible cause for unending desync, because the client wasn't getting the correct Skill Mode from the Host (and other game info)
- Animation : moving a bit from the ball because your player was too much on it could lead to wrong and/or truncated animation
- Gameplay : the player could hit the ball after it hit the back wall, leading to a weird animation

Notes :
- MacOs version updated

SubBuild 2021.4.10:

Changes:
- Localization : changed Portuguese to Portuguese-BR (so you'll have to reselect the language if it's the one you had selected)

Bug Fixes:
- Talents : viewing a player's Talents in the Training Club before loading a Career in the World Tour was crashing the game
- World Tour : picking up an existing player when starting a new career (instead of creating a new one) could lead to a crash during the career
- Tour Archive : the surface was always clay for all the Country Cup encounters
- Localization : changing the language in-game wasn't changing the country names
- Modding : using a lang_YourLanguage_Mod file was leading to have all sentences in English except the Modded ones
- Modding : fixed a few things so Modded Animations can be loaded correctly in all cases

Version 0.39 - Build 53 - SubBuild 2021.4.28:

New Features:
- Prop : the new NPCs are here (except the crowd) : ballboys, cameramen, photographers, chair umpire !
- Prop : the chair umpire's chair and the player chairs change depending on the selected stadium
- Rendering : added a detail level ("Very high") in the Video settings to display the cameramen & photographers

Changes:
- Rendering : optimized a bit the rendering of the NPCs, so if you have a middle-range GPU, you should get a few more fps... :blackeye:

Bug Fixes:
- Controls : it was not possible to do a lob to the side when using the aiming preview, except by releasing left/right before hitting the ball
- Players : putting a space at the end of your player name was making the game crash when starting a 3D match

Notes:
- The 2D Backgrounds are still the previous ones ; I'll update them when the crowd will be the new one
- MacOS version updated
