Doubles -- Notification of partner "swap sides" is missing..

Postby LetsGoBro » 16 Jul 2011, 11:39

Hey Manu,

I'm not actually sure this is due to the Mod's that I've added into the game, or in actual fact maybe this issue has been addressed already, or even simply I missed a simple button within the game that details the on/off feature for showing it (I don't know), but still I want some clarification with the issue just in case.

If you didn't get what my subject was talking about, I'm noting the behaviour of when you start a doubles match and at the beginning, you have the choice of whether you would like to stay where you are to receive serve, or swap your partner over and replace his position instead -- and of that, you have like (I think it was a duration of) 10 seconds to make your decision, or if you have made the decision to stay where you are, press Enter. (Something like that)

And essentially what I'm trying to say, is that this notification is missing -- ie. there is no dialogue in the middle of the screen which specifies to do so. Although despite this, you can still decide to swap sides -- the downside, you aren't notified to do so, and hence also, not sure how much time is left in order to make the decision. This may be a problem for new players of TE, and because of that, they may not be known of this feature and simply ask, "why the hell doesn't the service player serve the damn ball already? I've waited for ages.."

Again like I said, I'm not sure whether it's due to the modded features which causes this double's "special" notification to be erased in the process -- but if even if it is or isn't, I wondered if you could help me find the source of the issue either way. Being a pedantic prat like me, I can't help myself to discuss this issue I've encountered, so yeah, let me know what you think.

Cheers Manu,
LGB.

99.9% sure it's coz of ur Modding.
Maybe u should keep a 2nd clean installation of the game, that you could test easily ; it'd avoid you to lose time writing little novel when u get stuff like that... ;)

Tsk tsk tsk.. I thought so.... Naughty naughty Lewis :spank: . Don't worry, I think I can re-create it back to the clean version anyway -- just get rid of those Mod files and folders. Thanks for your reply -- Question: where is this data located in the folders that allows that doubles 'swap' feature? Maybe it can help me find which damn Mod file is preventing this notification from displaying :angry7:.

It might be related to HUD menu files.
