Dear community, how are you?!
I return to relive this topic as it brought you a surprise. Yes, on an old PC hard drive I have found some files from one of the first full patches that came out for what, at the time, was Tennis Elbow 2011.
Surely many of you also enjoyed this amazing work done by SamModder
, who is one of the pioneers in patching the game. Without this work, many of the Mods that are today would not have been possible. The complete assembly of the World Tour, each player with their outfits, updated rankings, the fields of the entire season, etc.
It would be a shame if a job that took so much dedication is lost in space-time and cannot be recovered. Luckily I found a part of this issue and with Sam's permission, I can share it with you.
I have tried to adapt this edit to current animations and graphics, but I have been very tangled along the way and my time is practically short to edit excessively.
The files I have managed to recover so far are those from the second half of the 2011 season, that is from Wimbledon to the ATP World Tour Finals. There are other Data folders that contain the first half of that year and the Davis Cup kits, which I hope to recover and share again.
The way to have this Mod in the game is simple:
1) Unzip the two .rar files.
2) Rename the "Datanew" folder to Data.
3) In the "Mods" folder of the game directory, create a new folder named "Sam Megapatch 2011" and add the "Data", "Datawimby", "Menu", "Scripts" and "Sound" folders.CLARIFICATION:
The file "Sam´s ATP Patch - Season 2011 Part2.rar"
will present an error called "Unexpected end of file"
. Ignore that poster entirely and unzip anyway.
It would be great to be able to "remake" these patches and adapt them to the current Mods. I swear to you that I have tried with a lot of enthusiasm, but I have failed and I could never achieve it.
I hope I have given you a blow to nostalgia and you enjoy those good times of Tennis Elbow 2011 again. I leave you a warm greeting!
