For those struggling with TE2013 version...
I am new on the forum but I have been playing the game and using your patch for many years. Thank you much for all of your hard work. You have truly transformed the game and made it the best tennis sim in history.
I have one comment and one request:
1. For those playing Tennis Elbow 13
(which I recently downloaded) I can confirm that the Pak3.pak file in the "FINAL VERSION" is corrupt and unusable. I know I am installing it correctly - I have done it many times. Using this file with TE2013 causes many bugs - player stats are all set to "0" and unchangeable, player creator is unusable, and menus freeze and lead to blank screens. Like a previous user has stated, simply using the Pak3.pak file from the 2.0 release
fixes this problem, though I see that it removes some of the new features of the final update version. For now, this seems to be the only fix. Just wanted to post this in order to help all of the players who are struggling with TE2013.
2. A request for you Sam. I know that creating retired players is probably a can of worms you do NOT want to open, but I must respectfully and sincerely request a creation of Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras. In all honesty, many of us in the community use these two guys far more than any of the obscure current characters found in the game. Their rivalry was (arguably) the greatest in tennis history. I know that you do not want to begin making past characters, but having these two guys would be downright amazing and I know many people would use them (as seen in the Top Spin series online mode).
Thanks again Sam! Keep up the good work!
