The player stops when I press Forward + Any Button

Postby HavyDev » 04 Nov 2015, 10:42

Hi Mana Games team,

First, congratulations for your awesome game Tennis Elbow 2013.

Today I purchased this nice product from your official website and i'm testing the game right now, but I have a problem (maybe a configuration error). During the game, when I move the player in any direction (forward, back, etc) and at the same time I press any other button (e.g: holding Forward + Button 1 or Back + Button 2 in my joystick) the player stops abruptly (does not continue running), and I lose a lot of balls. Only when I release the button 1, the player start running again, so, I can't press two buttons at the same time in my joystick because the player stops running (also the problem occurs with the keyboard). It is this a normal behavior of the game or is a bug, a game configuration issue or a Windows keys conflict?

How can I keep the player moving or running all time during the tennis game without an abrupt stop when I press two buttons at the same time?

I'm running the game in Windows 7 x64-bit with a joystick "Genius Maxfire Blaze 3" and keyboard "Microsoft Wired Keyboard 200".

Any help are welcome. Regards and thanks in advance.

Hello,

this is the normal behaviour of the game.
You still can prepare your strike at the last instant before hitting the ball, even if you lose some precision in your strikes.
So the normal flow is : get in correct position, then aim.
Once you'll be very good, you'll also be able to use the inertia to get a bit of extra time to position yourself.
Meanwhile, you can learn the game by playing with the Fast AutoPos at 1st (in case you already lowered it in the Training Club, or already switched to the World Tour).

Dear ManuTOO,

Thanks for the quick reply. Ok, I understand that is a normal behavior in the official game downloaded from your website, but I think that also can be changed the simultaneous combined buttons method as a hidden trick in the internal files into installation path, it this right? I mentioned it because I've downloaded the PATCH MAXOU Season 2015 posted in other thread and I tested/played the WIMBLEDON profile of this pack and I discovered that with this "modification" I can to hold pressed simultaneously the directions keys + any button of my joystick, then, the player does not stops abruptly and continues running while I prepare the strikes. This is great, because I'm an old player of Top Spin game, so it's more "hard" for me to get used to this new way of Tennis Elbow 2013. So, my request, if is possible please, can you give me the form or trick to change this behavior in the installation files, etc of my purchased game to adapt only this issue like Top Spin buttons behavior? It is more comfortable for me. I like me so much Tennis Elbow 2013, so changing this issue will be FANTASTIC for me! Only this is what I need to be completely happy with the game. The rest is perfect and the best tennis game for PC that I played since loooong time! Good job! Please help me with this little but important issue for me.

Best regards and thanks in advance.

No, it's not possible to change it.
If you played with a setup where pressing the buttons where not making you stop to run, then it means the buttons were doing nothing. If you were comfortable with that, it means you're comfortable with the idea of TE : you get an automatic safe strike if you don't have time to prepare your strike.

If you just want to reconfigure your buttons, you can do that in the Controls Menu -> Remap Strikes.
