Two-swing shots

Postby CC » 01 Jan 2010, 16:03

I don't know whether or not this is a bug, but sometimes multiple swings are taken for a shot. In the attached .dmo, there is a shot at 0 40, 0 40, 0:02 where my opponent runs back toward his left court corner and swings and misses on the way; I thought the point was over, but he keeps running, and then he swings again and makes contact with the ball. Luckily for me the ball doesn't clear the net, but it was close.

I noticed in the replay that this is a bug with the ball, net, and ball shadow. Sometimes during the replay the ball is seen as though it were behind the net even though the shadow indicates that it isn't and the action demonstrates that the ball can't possibly be behind the net. However, if the ball size is changed and then the point replayed, the effect may be corrected. This seems to be variable, as once when I replayed a point (the two-strike point above) the ball on replay appeared to drop over the net to my side and then finish on the other side of the net, but when I closed the game, restarted it, and replayed the point, the ball action appeared correctly. I continued watching the replay, and then I saw this happen again, where the net is seen over the ball even though the ball had long ago gone over the net. Here is a photo as an example (look closely at the ball -- you should see the hash pattern of the net over the yellow of the ball, which is not visible when the ball is not near the net; when this bug doesn't display, the ball won't have the hash pattern over it unless it didn't clear the net):

If you need more examples, you should be able to find them in the .dmo attachment above.

I just noticed that maybe the ball always appears "through" the net regardless of what side of the net it is on (when it is in that plane). Is it possible to correct this?

Thanks.

About the 2 swings, this is normal... It's not exactly a bug, nor a feature though... Sometimes the CPU sees he'll be very close of the ball, but he's not sure he'll touch it or not, so he does his swing but miss the ball, so he runs back more & try to catch it once more...

About the ball... This is perfectly normal... The motion blur makes it transparent, more or less depending of its speed, thus, you can see the net through it (and the court, players, etc...).
