Question regarding TE and TEM

Postby Vaderzz » 04 Oct 2011, 06:18

So while I was at my dads house this past weekend, I decided to try TE11 and TEM, because it doesn't work at my moms house. Anyways my question is, TEM has a planning screen for tournaments, and you can play in future, challenger, 250, etc, but it sims it for you. So the question is, does Tennis Elbow 2011, in World Tour mode, have a screen similar to the Planning screen on TEM ?

Also, like alot of the others, I get the can't initialize display error at my moms house with my computer. I tried changing the configuration settings, that didn't work. I can't update my video card drivers because I have Vgasave, which is loaded up by default when your video card isn't working or something like that.

Any help would be great as I plan on purchasing TE or TEM depending on how my first question is answered, Thanks. :D

Hello,

World Tour of TE2011 is very of the TEM's one, but without the management part ; so you don't need to plan your tournament, you can pick up any tournament in the tournament list (the same as TEM's one) and the game will advance week till you reach that tournament.

For your card, you have to install some correct drivers ; the game needs DirectX and DirectX is not supported by the generic Vga.dll drivers.

The game requires at least DX8, so you're alright about that ; the problem is that DirectX requires correct display drivers that you currently don't have...

Hey, I have another question. So I bought Tennis Elbow 2011, played a tournament or two and had fun. Anyways, after a little bit it got boring. So my question is, since you said on the on the order page, we can get a full refund for providing a reason to why we would want the refund. Anyways, I was hoping that somehow, you could ban or do something to my key so that's it's not useable, and just give a key for Tennis Elbow Manager. My reasoning for this is, that even if I got the refund for TE2011, I would just buy Tennis Elbow Manager. I can provide proof of purchase as it would obviously be needed. Thanks.
