with the Build 29, I added the possibility to record warm-up & matches.To turn on recording
, open the "Tennis.ini" (or the .ini of ur custom profile) and change this line, under [Record], from :
AutoRecord = 0
AutoRecord = 1
This will put the records in the subdirectory "Profile\Demos".
Then, to watch a recorded match
, open the "Tennis.ini" and change this line, under [Record], from :
//Play = 2009-03-17.12-00 - P.1 vs P.2.dmo
Play = [Name of the Demo File You want to watch]
Note: don't forget to remove the "//" at beginning of the line..!
Then launch the game, and enter either Warmup or Match (the game engine will set it accordingly to the recorded type anyway), and the replaying should be in action..! All menus should still be working, so u can watch stats or leave the game anytime u want...
When you watch a match, you can press :
- F10 : to skip to next point
- left Control + F10 : to skip to next game
- left Shift + F10 : to skip to next set
(sorry it's not possible to rewind now, but maybe I'll add this possibility in the future... You should still be able to watch the point replay, though)
This should also work with online matches.
And it may be able to work with future builds, as long as there are no big changes (but it might have some desync).
It should also support change in players' settings (fortunately & hopefully
), court, ball physics, cheatcode, etc... coz it restores all the correct settings on play start.
Note: It cannot record a resumed World Tour match, the match has to start from the beginning..!
You are very welcome to post your recorded matches in this topic, especially the online ones (in .zip or .rar to make them as small as possible), and I am personally very eager
to see the best players in action..! (yes, I mean S.Williamz
When you post an online match, try to indicate what was the lag set by the host.
Also, if u meet a bug or a glitch in the game (ie: crash, wrong AI behavior, etc...), replaying the demo should likely reproduce it, and thus, you could send it to me and I'd have a chance to fix it..!
It's likely there are some issues with the recording/replaying, so if u notice anything, thanks to let me know...How to post your recorded match in this topic ?
