@ Rob4590:
>>Double spirit

It's the ability of a player to use his best tennis when he's playing double.
I added this skill to do a difference between best single & double players. Else, all best single players could have been n°1 in doubles, and vice versa for double players.
With this additional skill, the best single players can have good a double ranking, but usually not be n°1, and vice versa for double players.

>> a potential partner. Rank = --,

did this happen after you chose a "Favorite Double Partner" ?
If so, then I found and corrected the bug..! Else, I should look more...

>> [saved games] Hopefully found it and now sent to you

humm, I didn't receive anything from u... I'm sending u a private message about this topic.


@lucho :
Ok, ur PC is really not old ! :)
The game is capped at 90 fps, but u get only 80 maybe coz u forced the framerate to not be beyond your monitor refresh rate ..?


@Jippo :
ok, thanks to ur report, I found the bug : it was because I didn't test the "Injury resistance" talent. It's fixed now.

About the motivation bar, u were getting close of the minimum or the maximum ?
I'm not sure of the cause, but I capped in both case, so it should be ok now.

Hi Manutoo.

I'm not sure if the FPS are set to be limited by the refresh rate. I don't know how to do that in the game (or outside the game). I tried again the "Talents" screen and if I click the mouse to put a star, and leave the mouse button pressed without moving the mouse, all the stars quickly disappear. Hope this helps. And thanks for all the help and updates.

The double spirit should probably then be called something like "doubles ability" then

the potential partner with rank -- - I don't think I'd selected a favourite partner - I think it appeared as soon as I went to the list.

Have replied to the pm.

Manu - when the picture of the player becomes the white box on the training screen, the type of player icon also disappears completely, plus the forhand power jumps from approx 20% to 75%

Don't know whether this helps at all.

@Rob4590 :
I got ur saved games and the english.Txt file (with a huuuge delay of several hours between the time u sent them, and the time they arrived in my mailbox), and thanks to ur games, I found almost easily this big annoying bug ! :)

I think it was the same bug that was reported in beginning of this topic (by Rob4590 & Jippo).
It was happening when u got 2 players (or more) who were going to play a tournament. After the 1st match of the 1st player, if you were training the 2nd player in the players menu, then it would lead to this bug...

It should be fixed now. But the saved games are corrupted. I put something to fix them by arbitrary set the play style and character to valid values, but then they might be not the same ones u selected when you created your game at 1st.

>> "double spirit" ==> "doubles ability"

Humm, as the "double spirit" is not a skill u can train, and it raises only by playing double, I'd like to associate it to a more "mystic" term than "ability"... Doesn't "spirit" match this goal ?

>> potential partner with rank --

if you notice it again, thanks to let me know.


@Y7 :
I answered your email. If you didn't get my answer, thanks to let me know here.


@lucho :
>> I tried again the "Talents" screen

Did u try again with the updated version ..? :shock:
I just checked again, and it seems to work correctly now.


@Cenc :
U'll receive the email with your license key to unlock your full version within 30 min after validation of ur payment; usually, if you pay by credit card, the validation is almost instantaneous.
The game is _not_ sent on a CD by mail, but only by email.

@Everybody :
So, new version, with the big bug fixed, I think (fingers crossed ;) ), and with another bad bug removed :
u couldn't go to the end of week qualifications if u began a tournament on this week...

New version =====>
http://www.managames.com/download.php?T ... r_febd.exe

If you don't see new bug, I'd like to have comment on the gameplay... Tell me what u like, what u don't like, what u'd like to see improved or changed... :)

I may have found another bug, not too sure though.

When i load my game, any player that I manage except for the one I created lose all the training I've given them, so that most of their stats are at around 45%. I've also had it once where one of them had full stats.

Also just a suggestion, would it be better to change the self-Esteem to confidence? As I see it, it rises and falls when you win or lose matches? So you could change it to confidence, and make it so you couldn't change it manually, and that it changes with your matches. The better players you beat, the more it will rise etc.. Just a suggestion

yup, I had forgotten to save the extra players... :oops:


>> self-Esteem to confidence

yup, I changed to confidence, I guess it's the good meaning.
For the way it works, it's already like u described. But I won't remove the possiblity to train it, coz I think that confidence is something u can work on.

Just tried a new game with the most updated beta. Set up my player, entered him in some tournaments, singles and doubles from week 9 onwards. 2nd week I hired another player, and entered him (and his partner) in a tournament in week 5. Week 4, he played the qualifying (both singles and doubles) and got through in both. Got to the main tournament, played his first singles match ok, then got to the doubles, and my other player played with the 2nd player's partner !!! Very strange!

I started to Manage Ljubicic. After a year, got a message where I could extend his contract for another year, but the message has a few oddities in it like:

"Coach -1 for 1 more year?"

"Commission: -1%
Objective: Stand rank #-1
Contract dissolved if drop below #-1"

When I clicked yes, got the crashed log in file "System.Log" again and it crashed

Manu, the problem in the Talents screen is fixed. I'm sorry, I was using a previous version still and hadn't noticed. :roll:
Thanks again!

Great work Manu! :lol:

Now i´m looking for bugs 8)

There´s something not correct with the tournament planning. Example: When i plan to go to Spain in Week 4 and to Italy in week 5 and maybe to England in week 6, my player goes to Italy in week 4 and to England in week 5 and so on and on. EDIT: It´s because of the qualification round, that start one week before the tournament, right?

But after a half an hour it looks very good to me. the game makes fun. :lol:

in the upcoming week i´m on work vacation and that means that i will have time to take a closer look to TEM. There are some german texts in the game. If you like i can help you to translate it into german. just let me now. :)

and now i will try to win my first match... :roll: 8)

I just tried the game, I think it´s excellent. You did a great work, mana.
But I´m from Argentine so I have to conform to play only the beta.
