World Tour / New Game Problem

Postby hamerg » 06 Mar 2006, 12:33

Hi, I bought Tennis Elbow yesterday, very happy with it. :D

When I first started I got so confused that I almost gave up though. I went to World Tour and then it shows a screen with a 'blank' player skills screen. At the time I thought 'I already created my profile' (although I didn't realise it was for the training only) and so I didn't click "New Game" - actually I didn't even notice it for about 5 attempts.

If you don't click "New Game" and then go into the Draws, Results, etc, then it's all very weird and broken - lots of bugs showing up, then click Next Game and it goes into an infinite loop, spinning through the weeks with nothing happening. The first time I didn't understand and thought maybe it was setting something up, so I sat and watched this for a while! :evil: Had to kill it with Task Manager.

Then when I finally saw the New Game option I figured out what was going on and I haven't seen any other bugs since then.

Perhaps the solution for this is to have a "New Game / Load Game" screen immediately after clicking on World Tour. It shouldn't be possible to miss "New Game".

Hello,

glad you're happy with your full version :)

About your trouble, hum, it's quite strange...
Maybe you had a previous version (1.0 or 1.0a) and just updated to 1.0b and something got wrong : normally, the game should detect the change of version and start a new game by itself, but maybe the detection didn't work... :?

If it's not that, then I guess the default saved game got corrupted somehow... :roll:

I installed the demo of 1.0b on Saturday and then just added the key.txt to unlock it on Sunday. After unlocking, I got confused with the user profiles, I tried to delete one, but it didn't go - maybe that was related? Then I went to World Tour.

If I get time tomorrow I'll try to repeat the problem and take a screenshot. It showed a singles tournament draw with Federer playing as a doubles partner for every competitor! I thought there was only one Federer!

Hummm, so it's very likely a bug in the deletion of profiles...

No need to take a screenshot, but if you find a way to reproduce the bug 100% of time, let me know, it'll help me a lot to find it !

Else, I'll do some try to see if I can reproduce it on my own.
