I download the demo game from your website , install and when I will try the game it doesn't works. When I gonna play on trainning I see the net in pieces and the fans on the side court blinks at the same time as I hear sound tilts. When the ball touch the ground a piece of net blinks on that place. And I cant see the court lines.

Hello,

your english is good enough, I can understand you ! :)

What is your video card ? Maybe you should update the drivers.

Could you send me the "System.log" file from your tennis elbow directory ?

To do so, open this file with the notepad from Windows, select then copy everything. After go there :
http://managames.com/Images/image_10_ien.gif
and paste it all in the message.

You can also paste it here, if you prefer, it's ok.

Regards,

Hello,

ok, nothing wrong has been detected by the engine.
Do you have any trouble in other 3D games ?

You card is a S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR. It's a bit old (or low end), but it seems it has the characteristics needed to run Tennis Elbow
correctly.
If you can, try to update your display drivers.

Else, you can try to edit the Tennis.ini file with the windows notepad.
Under :
[3dEngine]
change the line :
T&L = 2
to
T&L = 1
and if same result, then try:
T&L = 0

This last setting will turn the old 3D engine on. It doesn't work perfectly with Tennis Elbow, but it uses very different techniques, so it may give better results on your video card.

Moreover, try to play in fullscreen, in 16 bits, and after in 32 bits.
