Comments about TE4 Alpha Version

Postby manutoo » 17 Dec 2019, 19:09

Hello,

post in this topic your comments about the Alpha version (whose details & changelog are there : topic15-31984.php ).

Suggestion topic for general ideas : topic15-30550.php (for a suggestion about something in the Alpha, you're already in the correct topic).

Note : If you get a Bug, you're usually better doing a Bug Report from within the game ; HowTo => topic5-31732.php .

It's another big day for Tennis Elbow history!
Huge congrats for you. Respect :)

EDIT: I have losts AO and Cincinati courts surfaces, I think.
Both same:

noname1988,
1) Yes, check the TEM2 Modding SDK : topic11-31376.php => "2D Court" paragraph.

2) I just checked and the surface was correct for NewLine synthetic. Did you already Mod the game ? The surface materials are now in the Court.ini (this will allow selecting the stadium independently from the surface).

Thanks Manu.
But no, I haven't mod anything so far.
I just installed the fresh version and the problem is the same. (I previously overwritten the old one and thought that maybe that's why this is the problem).
In the evening after work I will try to find a solution.

noname1988,
I just rechecked and it was incorrect too (it seems it may happen differently if loading another stadium 1st :fear: ).
I just fixed it in today's build, thanks to your report ! :yes:

Thank you!

...but...now the same problem with clay court :D. 1st time after instalation clay surface launching corectly, but now every time it turns on like on screen above (green court).
AO court works good now.

EDIT: Also I noticed that after put custom 2d court there is a problem. This morning it worked fine before today's update (I followed your advice).

EDIT2: It seems that all 2d courts have this problem. Not only after mod.

noname1988,
ouch, I had removed something not useful for the 3D stadium anymore, but actually it was also used to load the 2D Background... :sweat:
It should be fixed now (no change of version).

For the clay, I double-checked and I couldn't reproduce the issue and the Court.ini is correctly configured. May I ask you again if you have put your own Court.ini for it..? :blackeye:
If you start the game and do a warm-up right away on the clay court, it's green ? If so, could you send me a Bug Report ? (HowTo => topic5-31732.php )

I found dependece.
clay court turns on correctly until I choose syntettic clay (green) and till that moment each time attempt to switch on clay is moved to green.
I send bug report via e-mail.

noname1988,
I started the game, loaded the Synthetic court, went back to menus, then loaded the Clay court and it was alright. Are you sure if you do that on your side, the Clay court is green ?

I got your log, and it seems you actually switched the 2D Background from on to off after have loaded an indoor court and switched to the clay, which seems impossible because normally when you apply the change, it should reload the current stadium, so I'm not sure what you did exactly... :fear:

Anyway, I tried to redo that, but the clay court still loaded correctly. Could you tell me exactly what steps you do to get to that wrong surface..?

I will reinstall today, record video and post here ;)

EDIT:
Okay, now I know that it is a matter of adding custom 2d court to the mod folder, court01. When I remove it, the clay court turns on correctly.

Thanks for your support! As always

Yes, but in TE2013 court.ini had no effect on 3d court surface display, i think :D
I sent another one, with video incl.

Yes, it's a novelty for TE4, as the stadium choice won't be bound to the surface choice anymore, so now the surface texture is specified in the court.ini .

I got your video and thanks to it I found the bug : when switching from the 2D Background to the 3D Stadium, the court texture wasn't applied. It'll be fixed in the next update. :yes:

Hi Manu! Sorry for the silly question: I bought the game in September and got my download link via email. Is the Alpha version supposed to be downloaded from that link as well? :?:

Hi Manu! Just tried out the latest build. Everything looks good, but I found this bug (?)

I was playing on QUALITY graphics settings and changed them to FAST just to see how much the fps would change and suddenly two other players appeared on court ':D

Everything else seems okay except I still get constant fps drops (just one or two frames).
