A couple of points:

1) Before you changed the serve controls, I was able to serve topspin or slice serves by using the alternate strikes option. Now I have to use the standard up/down + direction and I've always found that method clunky. Could you allow us to set individual controls for putting topspin, slice and twist on serves?

2) I agree with NeNa that you nerfed the slice a bit too much. The only problem I had with the slice before was those 78 mph shoulder height ones, but since the patch they seem weak again. Slice mastery makes slices a bit more consistent, but it isn't particularly noticable. I think the best solution would be to beef up the slice mastery talent for those that want a great slice with more consistency, depth and pace on it, and leave the current slice the way it is. It would allow us to model different types of players better too, like Feliciano Lopez who has an awful topspin backhand and a fantastic slice.

Edit: Speaking of the slice, I didn't really want to mention this because you're working on the AI at the moment, but the AI doesn't use the slice backhand nearly enough, especially players with one-handed backhands. Federer who's known IRL for mixing slice and topspin backhands up quite a bit, basically never uses it in game. I also very rarely see volleyers chip-and-charge.

topspinbackhand,

1) I'll look into that

2) I'll try to give a couple extra km/h to the Slice talent in the next build (not sure when it'll come)

3) Yes, the game needs another pass on the AI ; it might take a while before I get to it :fear:

hi manutoo,

i don"t like the new command config with too much option convenient for a controler but no for a keyboard
Concerning serve no good stuff cause we can not move to place before the serve.

Can you back to the previous please.
te4 must be a simulation and not a game
sorry guy :oops:

fabos,
everything works the same as before, except you can't have alternate up/down on the serve, but you can still move.
By default, the keyboard controls are still the same, except the gestures that are on another key, to avoid pressing them by mistake.

I don't know whether you're aware of this already but it seems like every other update a fps bug gets introduced and then the next update it gets fixed.

Bug seems to cause the fps to tank for like half a second after each point. My fps is locked at 240 during the point and then as soon as the point ends, it tanks to 130 and then goes straight back up again ready for the next point. I figured I'd mention it because I don't know how much feedback you get from people playing on higher frames.

I play on steam, it was there two builds ago, fixed in the previous build and it's now in the current build for me.

Guest,
the game calculates a bunch of things at the start of each point, so it's expectable to see an fps drop there ; so the strange thing is that you don't notice it every time... :blackeye:

Hi manutoo, when I try to play seasons mode as more than 1 player the whole thing somehow, for example, I chose year 2005 and Federer with Nadal as players, for some reason Federer is 17 and Nadal is 14 with terrible skills, could you please look into this?

Updated the game after a while and talents Slice Mastery and Early Ball Hit have an icon next to them. When you hover mouse cursor over it, it says ''Unknown code''. Do these talents work in the latest version?

Hey!

I'm loving the game! So far I've only played a pro career.

I've been thinking about starting in juniors and the menu says it makes the game harder. I was wondering what changes and how many years do you spend as a junior?

JaNeZoKu,
I guess you have Modded game ; do not keep language files else you won't get updates.

Guest,
your player stays junior up to 5 years, but you can turn pro any time you want.
You can start a career as Junior and play a few matches to see if it's of your taste or not.

I have these 3 files in ''C:\Users\Marin\AppData\LocalLow\Mana Games\Tennis Elbow 4\Mods\Marin\Ini'':
Players.WTA.Ini
Tour.WTA.Ini
TourCategory.WTA.Ini

And one file in ''C:\Users\Marin\AppData\LocalLow\Mana Games\Tennis Elbow 4\Mods\Marin\Text:
lang_English.txt

Should I delete this .txt file and its folder?

Btw, I've had these files for months. The talent issue wasn't present until I updated a few days ago (severeal updates at once).

How can I find such directories? I still can't figure out where my Ini folders are. :sweat:

JaNeZoKu,
you shouldn't have a "lang_English.txt" ; instead you should have "lang_English_Mod.txt" with only the new sentences & modified ones for your Mod.

vaidisova,

I get it now. Thanks manu.
Anyway Venus Williams is missing from the current tour. There is no way to bring her back due to age restriction unless I have to create a young Venus, right?
