1) What do you mean by "more styles of play" ?
2) There are still a lot of big things needed for the v1.0 :
- I have 10 more 3D stadiums to integrate
- new chair umpire, ballboys & crowd
- new gameplay stuff & many tuning
- Modding support
- and many, many smaller things
Also, but maybe these things will wait for version 1.0a or b or c :
- better animations
- service training
- single tournament mode
No, you can't change the shadows. Which ones give you an issue exactly ?
