Maybe u can add an exception to your anti virus. Apparently even my anti virus says TE exhibits keylogger like behavior. We can trust Manutoo I think :thinking:

I installed the patch and there is no virus(at least according to my AV, which one do you use?).

Nevertheless even if there is a virus there is no reason to think that it's been put there intentionally ;)

I use Avast for antivirus, and usually I'm quite careful with my PC, so there's low chance I get any virus.
Anyway, I just did a global virus check here of latest TennisElbow.exe : https://www.virustotal.com/file/d785dca ... 335110546/ and got 0 virus detection out of 41 antivirus.
So what are your antivirus that report a problem with TE2011..? :fear:

EDIT:
BTW vamos rafa is right, TennisElbow.exe exhibits Keylogger activity coz it blocks some keys to work normally (ie: the windows keys, the disability key events, etc...) so you can use any key of your keyboard to control your players while you play without problem. To do that, it hooks the keyboard subsystem. I guess that's what Keylogger do as well, except that TennisElbow doesn't log your keyboard activity... ;)

Hey manu, untill now i didn't play many players abusing that short slice, but here is a quick set vs adner, whose main tactic was to use that slice and hope to cover the net. if that's the way you see realisticness in that game, fine, but in my humble opinion that's quite ridiculous especially on clay (can't imagine what a nightmare that's about to be on grass with the low rebound...).

thanks for watching and commenting.

Actually I watched this dmo before a moment. I used that short slice in 8 rallies, won 4 of them and lost 4. Considering that you dont exactly move forward too much and I have quite many points in net skills, it's really such an "abuse" to win 50% of those points...(and guess what would happen if I used it more often, you'd simply catch it and kill it).
I think tennis usually promotes active game and offense, so we shouldn't be moving towards grinding behind the baseline and playing endless rallies. Short slice is an unique shot, just like a baseline smash(you hit 2 of them and both gave you points), a dropshot or a "nadal's shot" so I don't see how it's not realistic(since TE players are supposed to be "perfect tennis players").

I'm criticizing the fact that the short slice is kind of a dropshot, hence it should require 100% drop shot skills if you want to have a chance to hit beautiful ones like you do. Otherwise people will just stop using drop shots forever (like we already have seen this since the 2012 update) since the short slice is almost as efficient and requires 0 points... :roll:

I have Norton Avtivirus 2012. I tried to reinstall the game many times, but still, when I go to "Online Game" option, the game's turning off and Norton deletes tenniselbow.exe :(

Manutoo, forget about the 1st .dmo i posted, here is a worse one vs zeka, each time he's been able to hit that ridiculous short slice from any position (even behind baseline) and even after relatively fast shots (around 135kmh i guess), and most ridiculous of this is 90% of the time it net clipped...
If you thought you've been able to make that shot harder to hit, here is IMHO a perfect example that you haven't...

It is definitely harder to hit it, you don't know that 'cause you don't use it, and in real life players use it a lot comparing to your unreal shots. But, btw, Manu, you can take a look at his lucky regular deep shots, especially on my deep balls, that is just impossible to do that so often. And his net game is just overpowered considering that he is a counter. I haven't posted anything recently, but I have finally found a good reason to post. I was too lazy to post when Stan and now Adner argued about the game, and I totally agree with them on the changes that should be done or should have been done(Stan) and short slice(Adner). Short slice is fine! Flori, you should run a bit more now, I guess that presents a problem for ya, ha? You can't just stand on the baseline and take all the balls earlier(Manu, you should check that too, as he did some shots that are just ridiculous).

Florian,
I checked and the shortest short slice is actually a bit too short ; I'll make it a bit less short for next Build, that should also hopefully remove the net clip.

Yeah, Florian surely doesn't complain about his own magical volleys(which are actually much harder to return than short slice) or endless accelerations(since he's so eager to compare TE to real tennis...).

As i said my net is decent enough and your passes not good enough to trouble my volleys (some players are definitely able to pass me quite often so there is nothing to whine about here), but you were definitely happy enough to find out that when you hit that short slice cross court it hits the net 90% of the time (funny i haven't seen you guys yesterday using it dtl...net clipping not working efficiently enough in that precise case ?)

And i'll repeat it, being able to hit that great shot (that only Federer or very few players have been able to use once in a thousand points in real tennis) must be depending on your drop shot points displayed, otherwise people will never ever use 100 points for drops anymore...but if that's what you want...
