Few Mistakes ?

Postby tennisfan91 » 07 Jun 2012, 15:00

@manutoo:

When I play the game without the mod there are a few mistakes:

1- The opponents in the online games playing most slices and stops. For this the players walk to slow to the net and I haven't a chance to play the ball. Also the slice effect are too much!

2- Also the smash is not enough effective, the opponent could return is many times. And the lob is not effective too, the opponent could smash all my lobs, that's are not long and high enough!

3- And the sound of the ball when the ball touches the ground are not realistic, it's a simple bum bum, please change that maybe with the sound of the mod game.

4- Also please edit more playing styles (serves, FH, BH...) from the mod game, only the top players Federer, Nadal are realistic.

Thank you!

Hello,

1- improve your footwork, don't stand too far from the baseline

2- Smash max speed = 165km/h when you have 100% smash skill ; position yourself better & raise your smash skill to do great smashes ; and wait for your opponent to stick to the net before to do a lob

3- ball bounce sounds are all taken from real tennis matches on the corresponding surface, with background noise removed

Ok. But the ball bounce sounds are not so realistic, it's to loud. Look at Sam's Patch, there are this sounds much better. I hope could improve that. I also think the lobs are not high enough, little players like Clement etc. could smash all volleys. Please check this.

Thanks

What's important to do a winner lob is its the speed, not its height. The defense lob is high, but not fast.

Hi,

a problem with Tennis Elbow is that the rallies are way too long. In real tennis you just don't have that for example:

1.) People tire out very quickly, it's not enough in the game.

2.) Easy winners by crosscourt or baseline, not enough in the game, it's to hard.

3.) Unecessary unforced errors.

I just wish the rallies? weren't so deathly long.

Please introduced that manutoo!

Thanks

tennisfan91,
if you could try to convince the whiners in the v1.0e topic that rallies last too long, that'd be great... ;)

EDIT:
if you want more unforced errors, use Elite controls.

Please manutoo.

Make the rallies also in simulation mode not so long, also please make more unforced errors in this mode too!

Also please make the tiredness "On" by default and make it better, the players could run after a 50 shot rally, that not realistic.

Thanks

"Make the rallies also in simulation mode not so long" => that's why I created the Elite mode, so use it.

Raise the CPU level & play more aggressively and the points will last shorter as well.

Tiredness is already on by default.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_te ... ords#Women => "The match featured a 29-minute, 643-shot rally, the longest in professional tennis history" ... 50 shots is nothing ;)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marathon => "The marathon is a long-distance running event with an official distance of 42.195 kilometres (26 miles and 385 yards)" ... if you can't run for 50 shots in real life, then do more footing... :yes:

Haha manutoo. I mean that the players run after 50 shots to strong. The tiredness is not so realistic in your game, you must improved that. And the tiredness is not "ON" by default. When I pick a CPU-player from the World Tour to the Training Mode his tiredness is "OF" by default!

The tiredness is "on" by default everywhere : Training Club player, online game creation, World Tour game ; for saving the World Tour players, Tiredness should not be on by default, it should match the current World Tour setting, which is not the case for the moment, but I'll look into that.

And I can hit 50 shots in a row in real life without dying, so can the pro players... :roll:

Your're right. I can hit 50 shots in real life tennis game too. But I think the tiredness effect are not enough in the game in all other situation. Also I think the players run not fast enough to the net. It looks to slow and not realistic.

The players run at same speed in all directions.
Set the camera all up (ie: at the maximum height), and you should be able to see that by yourself.
