Tennis Elbow 2011 Mac v1.0e

Postby manutoo » 06 Jun 2012, 13:22

Hello,

Tennis Elbow 2011 Mac v1.0e is released (Build 88-2012.6.6) :
http://www.managames.com/download.php?T ... c_fe1e.zip [Permanent direct download link to the latest version]

/!\ 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 ; do not overwrite your current game folder with the new one, else you'll lose your saved games (they might end in the bin, so still in recoverable state, though).

New Features :
- New Strike Styles, Return Stances & Gestures : a good bunch of animations created by Neeky McDeez, Lucian86, m4n4c0r & Jono4Sure have been integrated to the game !
- .Dmo : PPC Mac can now play .dmo from Intel Mac & Windows, and vice versa

Changes :
- Gameplay : short slice is a bit less short
- Gameplay : left/right speed change is now slightly slower (this will be active Online only after the end of the current Slam)
- Gameplay : using B1 for 2nd serve is tiring like half an acceleration
- Gameplay : backhand slice span raised a bit, so it's now a bit wider than the 1H-BH
- Gameplay : a bit more penalties when hitting a short slice not well centered in the racket
- Gameplay : short strike is a bit more short, especially with high topspin skill, and a bit less fast when having both high power & high topspin skill
- Animation : player now always runs to drop shot (and short balls) instead of sidestepping, and generally the run animation will take over sidesteps earlier
- Crowd : point restarts half a second later when the crowd applauses more than a little bit
- AI : CPU now runs less often around the ball to do a FH instead of a BH

Bug Fixes:
- Match Replay : .dmo shouldn't desync anymore
- Gameplay : racket wingspan was not set correctly when switching from normal strike to slice strike
- Animation : fixed the jumping legs making the player looking like he's levitating (it was happening mainly on gestures)
- Animation : head turning in the back fixed for good (dito ':D )
- Sound : crowd shouldn't applause too early anymore
- AI : CPU won't use net jump anymore when lobbed
- Replay : in slow motion mode, the last frame is now correctly replayed
- .Dmo : Warmup .Dmo desync fixed
- .Dmo : matches with tiredness on were desynch'ing as soon as the players were getting too tired

Notes :
- Changelog of previous versions is here : topic15-5869.php
- as usually, if you notice any glitch or bug, thanks to report them !

Build 89, July 11th:

Changes :
- Gameplay : forward inertia tuned : it's almost halved after serve ; after normal strikes, it's greatly reduced ; after accelerations, it's significantly reduced, except for fast accelerations on very slow incoming balls where it's very slightly reduced
- Gameplay : ball can now be hit a bit in the back, but it's then more difficult (ie: loss of precision or even fault)
- Animation : Atlernate Volleys & Smash binded to FH #3 instead of #2
- Physics : grass court speed tuned ; it is now very close of the indoor carpet, except it's still a bit more fast surface, which makes it very close of the current Wimbledon courts
- Display : timeclock ':' doesn't blink anymore ; you can turn the blinking back on in Tennis.ini

Bug Fixes :
- AI : CPUs were getting too close of net in volley vs volley fights
- AI : in doubles, CPU could run to his partner side on some occasions
- Animation : run animation could be triggered in weird situations
- Gameplay : Nadal strike length fixed when there's not much topspin in it
- World Tour : when starting a season with a female player, her FH, BH & Serve powers were too low (you'll have to start a new season to enjoy this fix, it won't apply to seasons in progress)

SubBuild 2012.8.10, August 10th:

/!\ Warning : do not update if you installed a Mod having qualies & main draw of different size, else you'll lose your saved games ; official version is ok, though

Changes :
- World Tour : for Women Rankings, Masters is counted in the Best 16 tournaments, instead of added apart
- World Tour : from the All tournament draws screen, the current week qualies (and their empty main draws) are now included in the cycle list

Bug Fixes :
- World Tour : Masters winner points corrected for Women Ranking
- World Tour : fixed a bug occurring when playing a main draw in doubles only and then playing qualifications at end of week both in singles & doubles
- World Tour : draw size can be different from the main draw size ; the official TE Tour doesn't have such kind of qualies draw sizes, but if you have a Mod with different draw sizes, it'll invalidate your saved games, so do not upgrade if you don't want to lose your saved games
- World Tour : FormOfDay (it's a Tennis.ini feature) wasn't working anymore since release v1.0e (it was not initialized)
- World Tour : fixed a crash that could occur when playing Qualies of Country Cup
- World Tour : fixed a crash that could occur when playing Qualies of Country Cup
- World Tour : seeding is now correctly calculated for non-power of 2 qualies draw size
- World Tour : in TourCategory.ini, QualifDraw set to -2 was seen as -1 ; the engine will now see -2 correctly, but to not invalidate the saved games, I had to put all draw sizes to -1 in the official TE Tour
- World Tour : in the Activity history screen, Doubles partner could be wrongly set on reloading
- World Tour : Qualies points were not re-assigned correctly on reloading
- World Tour : number of seeds corrected for doubles of Masters 1000
- World Tour : players are now retired on Week 52, not 1st week, to be consistent with the reloading state
- World Tour : on reloading, current week rank of Doubles Race was corrupted in the Activity history
- World Tour : rankings were miscalculated on reloading
- World Tour : Players with Wildcard were not getting the "WC" flag in the draw
- World Tour : in Doubles Race, missed important tournaments were not correctly handled for ranking points ; counted tournaments shown weren't the ones done with the best partner ; ranking in Activity history for current week was corrupted on reload
- World Tour : fixed a few issues while consulting Activity history of retired players

Note :
- World Tour : if you installed a Mod, you'll have to find all QualifDraw & QualifDrawDouble in TourCategory.ini that are set to -2, and set them to -1, else your saved games will be invalid
