Hey Manutoo,

Not sure when this got introduced but a minor thing is that the animation for all of the male players has become random and different now. For instance, Federer now longer uses his forehand or backhand, Roddick as well etc.

polakis,
no, it's not possible to Mod the 3D model. Outfits should be moddable soon.
If someone really wants to create new 3D stuff, maybe I could find a way to make it work, but it's not too easy as there's some pre-processing and extracting the code from my codebase to make it available in a Modding SDK might take a while. :fear:

megadam,
thanks to your report, it should be fixed in today's build ! :yes:

HI!, I have been really enjoying the game for a past few days. I had a question. Do you plan to add more shot animations? I mean animations like the lunging forehand and backhand, and maybe inside out shots. It seems like the gameplay is very enjoyable, and only a few visual refinements are needed for good immersion. Also, can you make the game compatible with NVIDIA GeForce Experience? I wanted to try some sharpness filter from there.

anrox335,
there are plans for such kinds of animations, but I'm not sure when & how they'll come.
I don't know what to do to make the game compatible with the GFE and I really don't have the time to look into that... :fear:

Hi Manu
I have a few questions regarding 3D Modding

Will it be possible for modders to create new 3D stadiums? Or maybe re skin the existing ones? Or maybe have something like a 'Stadium creator'?
Will be also possible to import player's faces like on TE2013?

Thanks!

Fed1,
1) It may be possible to create new 3D stadiums, but it'd require an SDK to prepare them. The game can already load user stadiums, though.
There's no "skin" on the existing ones : they are material-based instead of texture-based.
And a Stadium creator is totally out of reach of a solo-indie effort like TE4... :fear:

2) It should be possible to do the same trick as in TE2013 to get custom faces in TE4. However, there's an in-game face editor that should be used in conjunction to get better results.

Greetings Manu,
Not sure if this is the right place to report, but when you're playing in Country Cup in Doubles match the scoreboard says name of the country name twice (as if United States/Unites States vs Russian Federation/Russian Federation) now I get the idea of why is that is happening, but I wonder if it could be fixed so it either shows name of the players or the country only once.

Thanks

leo26,
hopefully, it's more or less done (except for the tutorial) : topic29-33190.php . :fear:

After the latest update, when I click on the button to see past champions of the tournament in the draw section, I get an empty screen instead of the list with previous tournament winners. Sometimes it shows up after going back to draw and then clicking on the button again.

Also, I was just forced to retire after simulating 25 years in seasons mode. I thought in TE4 there was no limit for career duration.

JaNeZoKu,
1) I tested from the Tournament Selection & the Tournament Archive and didn't notice any issue. If you have the latest version, send me a Bug Report from the screen with the button opening the Past Champion screen (HowTo => topic5-31732.php )

2) Read here : topic11-33189.php

Sent a bug report. Actually, it seems to be the problem only in the game where the career of my player has come to an end.

JaNeZoKu,
your saved games are too big to be sent by email..!
Could you send me this file by Mediafire or Mega.nz (or another site of your choice) : Profiles\Default\WTA\Tour05.sav ?
