Tennis Elbow 2011 Mac v1.0c is released (Build 73-2011.9.9) : ... [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 :
- New Strike Styles : 2 Serves, 2 Forehands, 2 Two-Handed Backhands (you're welcome to guess from what real players they are inspired from in this topic : topic15-2209.php?start=75#p74703 )
- AI : CPU can now do stop volleys (ie: dropshot volleys)
- Mod : Sign.Tga can be assigned a Skin (ie: loaded from a Sub-folder)
- Mod : can use 0 size flag to preload a country flag in a shader

Changes :
- Gameplay : Topspin strikes are a bit shorter, especially when spin amount is high ; in compensation, off-center ball spin handicap is slightly less strong
- Gameplay : Dropshot is slightly shorter when dropshot skill is higher ; to compensate, dropshot is a bit harder to control on fast incoming ball, and off-centering the ball gives more malus
- Gameplay : strike speed bonus on ball whose height is around your player shoulder has significantly increased, and can trigger on slightly raising balls instead of only falling balls ; bonus is halved for Defender & Counter play styles ; bonus cannot trigger if not enough time since your opponent hit the ball (ie: on return of service)
- Gameplay : strike speed is slightly more capped when hitting low & very low balls ; this is especially noticeable on fast surface where the bounce is low
- Gameplay : imprecise strikes can be sometimes significantly shorter
- Gameplay : topspin strikes can be sometimes a bit shorter
- Gameplay : jump at net is more tiring
- Gameplay : dropshot against too fast incoming ball doesn't go too high anymore
- Gameplay : missed volleys have a bit less chances to clip & pass the net
- Gameplay : all strikes done against a sliced ball are now less precise
- Gameplay : Defender style topspin rate bonus slightly lowered (ie: you'll need a bit higher Topspin skill if you want to max out your spin in most situations)
- Gameplay : Normal & Topspin strikes done very far from the baseline are now a bit shorter
- Gameplay : volley dropshots use a bit more the Net Presence skill and a bit less the Drop Shot skill
- Helpers : Smoke appears now at 1st on the last precise acceleration
- AI : CPU can now chip & charge the net
- AI : CPU rush the net quicker after its strike
- AI : CPU repositions itself slightly faster after its strike
- AI : CPU does less volleys going to the middle of the court & globally volleys a bit better
- AI : CPU can decide to hit the ball around its shoulder height
- AI : CPU now reacts sometimes better to dropshot, so doing a dropshot & rushing the net should be less easy than before
- Announce : no more "2nd serve" announce when the 1st service ends in the net, and the "Fault Calls" are on "Realistic"
- Animation : serve 2 tuned a bit ; serves 4 & 5 fixed (shoulders & hands had problems)
- World Tour : Speed skill isn't too much capped anymore for tall players ; most other skills' cap removed or diminished

Bug Fixes:
- AI : in Doubles, CPU behaves correctly after a jump at the net, and on certain situations where both partners didn't play the ball
- Render : when camera gets close of edges of the stadium, the lower part doesn't disappear anymore
- Helpers : Ball Preview is correctly displayed when watching CPU vs CPU matches (it's done according to the CPU level)
- Gameplay : your player should now strike the ball after the ball clips the net by a bit
- Camera : fixed a bug when switching camera mode during an online match after the trial period ended
- Control : can now assign Keys when using only keyboard (ie: without clicking with the mouse)
- World Tour : players got their long shorts back !
- World Tour : correct display in Doubles draws of 1st round points
- World Tour : Experience Points at start of a New Game were emptied ; they are now back to their correct amount

Notes :
- Changelog of previous versions is here : topic15-4477.php
- as usually, if you notice any glitch or bug, thanks to report them !
- With all the different improvements brought by this new version, now the CPU should be globally quite better to reach the net & then finish the point there
