Tennis Elbow 2011 Mac 1.0a

Postby manutoo » 18 Jan 2011, 12:41

Hello,

Tennis Elbow 2011 Mac v1.0a is released (Build 66-2011.1.18) :
http://www.managames.com/download.php?T ... c_fe1a.zip [Permanent direct download link to the latest version]

/!\ Warning: this new version of TE doesn't support Mac OSX 10.3.9 ; you must have at least Mac OSX 10.4 to play it
/!\ Updating: when you update to a newer version, you have to transfer the "Profiles" subfolder from your previous TE2011's directory to the new installation folder to keep your saved games.

New Features :
- Strike : Backhand Smash (1)
- New Strike Style : one 2-Handed Backhand (you're welcome to guess from what real player it's inspired of in this topic : viewtopic.php?p=53834#p53834 )
- World Tour : can start a new game with up to 4 human players
- World Tour : can see the number of Wins/Losses for previous years
- Controls : can remap all strike combinations (when "Advanced Options" are on) ; this is especially useful for too sensitive gamepads that don't allow to clearly push middle/up/down (like the Xbox 360 controller) (2)

Changes :
- AI : CPU players lob more often when decentered
- AI : CPU players now react a bit more slowly to drop shots
- Gameplay : accelerations on sliced balls have a bit less precision
- Gameplay : in match, you can now strike the ball when it's out and your player started his strike (except on 1st serve return)
- Gameplay : off centre balls on the normal & topspin strikes are slower than before
- Animation : Services 1 & 5 significantly tuned so the ball toss is higher ; Service 2 is very slightly tuned as well
- Animation : Crowd applause tuned
- World Tour : Rankings updated to end of 2010
- World Tour : Team Cup players are now selected by their current strength instead of their current ranking
- World Tour : the Score Simulation produces about 30% less tie-breaks, especially in last rounds of important tournaments

Bug Fixes:
- Gameplay : player doesn't move forward / backward several times when hitting a very high ball from the baseline while AutoPos is on Fast
- Gameplay : right-handed players should now turn around to the left or the right correctly, when lobbed
- Controls : fixed a crash that could occurs when plugged in a gamepad/joystick with less than 6 buttons

Notes :
- Changelog of previous versions is here : topic15-3440.php
- as usually, if you notice any glitch or bug, thanks to report them !
- (1) : hitting an acceleration on the BH Smash gives a bit less fast ball than an acceleration on the FH Smash
- (2) : if you used to use X & Z keys to do the slice & top spin strikes, you should now remap these 2 strikes to the new Fire 4 & 5 ; you have to turn on the "Advanced Options" from the "Misc Options" menu to see the "Remap Strikes" button in the "Control" menu

SubBuild 2011.3.7, March 7th:

- World Tour : on the weeks with a forced tournament, 1 too much minor tournament was counted for Race ranking points
