Got the mail. It works, tho the graphics are off just a bit on my CPU, with the chair umpires, but it's playable, and it's awesome! It's like being on the court.
But, I am seeing 2 chair umpires, yours and the original one (both on opposite sides of the court). What I had done, was create a custom court, and renamed your file to court.jpg and imported to the .pak. Then I copied your camera settings to the Tennis.ini. Only thing is, if I want to go back to original views, I have to re-copy the original camera settings back to the .ini.
But the court level view is amazing. Just like having a camera right there on the court and it's so realistic.

Edit: Ok, I forgot to delete the other graphic files of linesmen, etc in the custom court folder. That's probably why I'm seeing double lol. I will do this tomorrow since I am going out now. But amazing!

You can press F9 to turn off the chair umpire & the line judges...

Krisztian J., it'll work with the demo (in Court07), but normally, u're supposed to buy the game to have the right to mod it...

The us open court set up
1- create the directory Data\Court07
2- copy the Court.jpg in Data\Court07
3- edit "Tennis.ini" (or the .ini of your custom profile), look for the [Camera] section, and replace it with :
.......... here you put the correct settings ............camera config i sent in the email
4- launch the game & play on the BG-green cement court
You must disable scroll and zoom and then put in court07 lauch the game in the blue green cement and then enable scroll and zoom
These are the same options I used when making the video. full dynamic with the zoom bar 1/8 from the left, zoom after serve
my resolution was 1280x960 bit 32 refresh rate 75. It's not hard to set up.
Why do you use these options? these are the options I tested and it gives stable game play, I can always adjust things to make it better.

The zoom is too much, and I don't know why. I have tried Mild Dynamic and Full Dynamic, with the zoom on the lowest setting (all of the way to the left). Yet, the camera is too zoomed-in on Player 1, so that I can't see action in the corners very well (which I need for returning serves). I can use Constant Zoom, which gives a neat effect, but the problem with that is that the net action is too zoomed out, and it is hard to see the ball and such. Is there a way to adjust the upper and lower limits of the zoom for Mild Dynamic and Full Dynamic to make them zoom out more than what the slider is allowing right now?

I found 2 entried in the <profile>.ini file, ZoomStart and CameraZoom. What do these adjust? Also, what is CameraMode?

If I make the TE2009 window not maximized, and make it the width of the desktop but not full height, so that it is in a wide display format, the zoom is better (I can see the corners when returning serve).

The game is not remembering the court position after I have changed it. I press 9, but this does not help.

HI
That's the one concern I had when doing this, when i set up the court in dev1 mode using court01, when got on the court after linning it up, i would press no key 9 and it would set back a little to avoid this. CC im going to email you another camera config, put it in please and email asap
when your using court07 setup you cant adjust the camera like in full dev1 mode, were trying set up a fixed standard camera like in the videos
and when that's done we can always adjust it from their or i'll have to make a couple camera configs to make everbody happy.
CC your only disabling zoom and scroll in the main menu of the game and after you drop in the new court and launch the game then you enable scroll and zoom. "OBoy" The fun is just starting"

Solarisaint,

I was referring to settings while in DEVMODE. The game is not remembering the position of the court; so, when I exit a game and go back, I have to line the court up again.
For some reason, the zoom is better now after I exited the game and went back in (under DEVMODE). The ZoomStart in my .ini file is now set to 1 (I think that it may have been 3 before). I have the game maximized (full height and width), and I can see the corners. Also, the net action is OK since I have Full Dynamic selected (and this is zoomed-in on when appropriate).

Here some better setting for the US Open court :
[Camera]
Angle = -2.37305
Custom = 1
CustomFocal = 2.77699
Dist = 3088
Height = 302

No need to turn on the DevMode.

And when the DevMode is on, the Tennis.ini isn't save when u exit the game by clicking on the top right little arrow. You have to click on the "Exit" icon within the game menu to get it saved. And if the Tennis.ini isn't saved, then your new camera settings aren't saved as well... :roll:
