Missing the ball animation.

Postby supermati » 18 Jun 2010, 02:43

Hey there guys,

I was trying out the new 2011 demo and realized how much better the game got in recent times.

There is one little thing that does look really out of place though: When the players miss the ball. Instead of them just stroking into thin air (never actually happens in real life) it should be them stumbling a little bit and struggling to reach the ball.

I hope it is not hard to add as it would create much more immersion.

I agree with you. Everytime I play TE2011 and even the previous version, I always think of that, that my character should at least tried to reach the ball in a manner that the legs are wide apart and the hand is stretch out almost reaching the ball. This animation is present in other tennis game out there. I know this mean another animation stint for Manutoo but I am not loosing hope. :)
