Hi,game used to work flawless for me, but since updating to the latest build it no longer does. As soon as I want to launch it I get ' Code can not be executed as Unityplayer.dll is missing.Any clues as to why?

EDIT : Fixed it ,reinstalled the full build instead of patcher, and it seems to work fine again !

Much appreciated Manu! I'm now downloading the full build, updating isn't working for me I'm afraid.
Fantastic work by the way! I'm already addicted like it's TE2013. :)

Issa93,
Had you tried to restart the Launcher before downloading the full installer ?
Theoretically, it should be able repair the installation. :fear:

Deathopus,

Hi Manu! I bought TE4 yesterday and I must say I'm really pleased with the game so far, much better than any tennis game out there (Including TE2013). Here are my thoughts so far:
1) New animations for high-low balls are promising, I can tell they're on alpha but they're OK given the state of the game. The only 'problem' I found was that sometimes during running periods the movement is weird.
2) There's something about the male player model that doesn't feel 'natural' (?). I think the shoulders are too broad compared with the lower body, which gives the player a more muscular body type rather than a more 'skinny'.
3) I feel (let me remark it's just a feeling since I haven't played that much) that the only way to achieve deep shots is to hit the ball on the green zone, which feels a small area. I think you should be able to send the ball deep into the other side even if you hit from a little behind (which triggers the 'go down with the legs' animations). A posible solution could be to increase the green hitting zone?
4) I really like the new assets you added to the game, clothes and stadiums wise. Keep adding more please!! Maybe you can add famous shirts/shorts/shoes based from famous player. The stadiums are AMAZING! Really well crafted and detailed, I really appreciate the option to change the surface for each stadium. Personally I'd like to see new and different stadiums, like some from South America/Asia and exhibitions and training arenas. Also the possibility to have the name of the city/tournament on the sideline or button of the court would be nice
5) Add the possibility to serve/receive during warm ups would be great to practice outside a match! Also have shorter matches, like a set to 4 games or tiebreaks. Sometimes I just don't have time to play a whole set sadly.

Anyway, I'll add more as I play more, please keep in mind that my only intention is to give constructive feedback, I appreciate that you listen to everyone here!

Thanks!

iloveme2233,
why do you have to start over ? What happens ?

Fed1,
2) It's not possible to change the player's shoulder shape anymore

3) You can only achieve deep shots by luck (and in this case, they'll be mostly weak shot), or by standing well inside your baseline ; this is more realistic than TE2013 (see this mini-blog post : viewtopic.php?p=267234#p267234 )

4) I hope Modders will create some nice outfits. I still have 11 more stadiums to put into the game (mostly Master 1000 ones) :yes:

5) Serve training is planned.
To do only tie-breaks, set Settings -> Training Club -> Number of Games to 0

Thanks for your feedback, I'm glad to know that you think TE4 is already better than TE2013 ! :jap:

iloveme2233,
do you have a warning message shown ?
Else, check if you have a saved game in the Load menu.
If nothing, you can try to send me a Bug Report the next time your Career reset, but I doubt I'll be able to know more about what going on... :fear: (HowTo => topic5-31732.php )

MRGreeny74,
yes, info & order links are there : topic15-30551.php .

Had a couple of questions:

1) Will custom stroke animations made for TE2013 work in TE4?

2) Is it possible for a regular, non-modder user like myself to add the new animations to my copy of the game? If so, is there a guide I can follow?

polakis,
if the updater fails, download the full installer from your License Key email.

HotWingsFTW,
1) No, they need to be re-exported.

2) It's not possible to add animation in TE4 now.

Thanks for your reply!
The male player model is actually OK, I'll just get used to it eventually, I think that the main issue here is that I compare everything with TE2013 and I shouldn't since this is another game entirely.

Regarding the deep shots, amazing analysis on your end. I remember reading the post but before I got the game, so I just forgot. But with that analysis and a few youtube videos I understood your point. I guess this adds a new layer of depth to the gameplay, so tactics are now more important than ever.

If I'm being honest the only 'thing' that's missing for me now are the animations, and I'm not talking about modded ones (although they're needed as well) but the ones already included. Sometimes it looks like the players are tense when hitting when they should look more relaxed (Am I making any sense?). Anyway, I was thinking that maybe a split step animation would help on that feeling? Have you considered added that?

Awesome news about clothing and stadiums, really looking forward to that!

I also noticed that wristbands and head accessories have a reflection, like they were made on glass. Is this on purpose?

Thanks Manu!!

Fed1,
I guess the players look tense if the ball is a bit too far from them when they hit it, no ? Else, when correctly positioned, the animations should look like in TE2013 (with a bit of variation for the height)

The split step is done when the opponent strikes the ball, so I'm not sure how it'd help with looking more relaxed when hitting the ball ? :scratch:
Maybe I'll add such animation, though, but it's not a priority for the moment.. :blackeye:

I already fixed the ultra-shiny wristbands a few days ago, and I tuned a bit the shininess of the woman head accessories for the next version. (the man's ones seem ok)

When the game comes to ps4/ps5, how will you make it moddable? Is it easy or difficult because of console restrictions?
