1) Yes, the download link in your License Key email will always work.
Plus you can check for a new version in the game -> Settings -> Misc Options

2) Hum, that's strange. I already fixed a similar bug in the past, IIRC.
I just tried to reproduce it and couldn't : started a singles warm-up and clicked the Quality presets ; then started a doubles warm-up, exited, started a singles warm-up and clicked the Quality presets again ; but I never got 4 players in the singles warm-up.
Do you remember if you had done something else special before the bug ?

Before changing from Quality to Fast I turned vsync off, but that's about it. There's nothing else special I did before as I had just downloaded the new version. :sweat:

Had the same problem in TEM2 yesterday. Changed from 3D court to 2D and turned quality to fast, then two additional players showed up at the net.

polakis,
maybe it depends on the camera settings ; when it happens, please send me a bug report (HowTo => topic5-31732.php ).

For the little I saw, they didn't change the control scheme from the n°1, so it still requires to time to hit the ball at the correct time, and according to a review I read the aiming is not timed, and it's bound to the lines (ie: you can't aim too far), so it's really not much TE like overall... :)

Note: I'll likely delete the messages about AOT2 tomorrow, as I don't want to promote it too much... :P

After trying the Alpha version, I can conclude that I really like the new gameplay. The speed of the winners is much higher, and players make many more mistakes, which is very good.

There are only two things that I feel take away a little immersion: 1) The position in which the players are left after winning/losing a point. Like bouncing and looking towards the net, which isn't realistic at all. They don't complain, don't turn, don't look at the public, don't look for the towel, don't play with the racket, nothing.

2) The lateral displacements seemed a little slow to me, the characteristic movement of the feet in the tennis is not seen, in order to arrive well positioned until the ball.

Two small aesthetic details. The default scoreboard has an old and quite cold design, and the box with instructions that appears at the beginning of each game also needs an urgent renewal.

In everything else, the improvement is evident.

Congratulations.

juanabolche,
I'm glad to know you enjoy the new gameplay ! :yes:

1) This kind of "cherry on the cake" stuff may come one day, but it'll be really when everything else important is already there (eg: all new 3D stuff, anims, gameplay, etc.)

2) There, it lacks some better animation, I hope to add some, hopefully before v1.0 release

3) Yes, old HUD stuff shall be replaced :)

Manuto, you are God of tennis games.
Its unbelievable that you made this game alone. I am so impressed and this game is fucking amazing, Top Spin, [censored], console games cant compare with this. It is the best tennis game ever and its only Alpha version. I downloaded this yesterday and played 4 hours (!) in exhibition matches, i set camera Still and appropriate height and aperture. Its feels and looks like Australian Open qualifycation!
Tennis Elbow 2013 was good, nice gameplay, nice physics, but it wasn't revolution. Yes, i am pretty sure thatTennis Elbow 4 is revolution, it will be like Pro Evolution Soccer 6 in football games. I want physical DVD discs in shops, i am sure that you can sell much more copies with opportunely promotion.
Gameplay is amazing, i feel power of shoot on my racket, i feel slices and can send it to the baseline, i have to think how i can play next point and construct it carefully in important moments. I am so excited, i am waiting for Full Version and for mods, for online mod like ITST in TE 2013 and i will be playing all free time because it is so addictive and feelings from playing are AMAZING.
I dont see any weak points, maybe more animations and slices during sprint and skid on clay.


2:47 after Federer winning forehand
1:10 forehand slice with skid

By the way, after playing Tennis Elbow 4 this Top Sping game looks like funny arcade developed by small studio. Manuto did it way much better alone. I am so impressed.
Realism in this game is perfect, i will record some games with my camera settings and if i can i will show it here. Its REAL TENNIS MATCH.
I need a graphics and players from ATP Tour with mods and some animations with ball boys (towels, throwing balls), animations after points to feel match atmosphere more and we have complete tennis game, 10/10 for sure.

I am on a laptop with dual graphics cards (Intel integrated which is low quality and NVIDIA which is much better, although even that one is already old lol). Anyway, I start TE4 by right clicking the game .exe file and then I select run with High-performance NVIDIA processor, but the in-game settings menu says the game is running on the Intel integated graphics card. However, in the Windows system task bar, the NVIDIA icon is active and says it's running TE4.

:confused:
