it has been reported in the french topic, and fixed. (it was showing the best ranking between singles & doubles)
>> in effect qualified for the qualifiers
>> too many tiebreaks that end with scores like 26-24, 39-37
yup, it's possible there are too much of this.
I just raised a bit the stress after 9-9, let me know if it gives better results or not.
>> No bugs to report now
fixed (but not in latest update)
>> The style of players
I'll try to write a detailed documentation about this, but maybe only in next May.
For now, just know that everything should be logical; example : puncher are power baseliners which go to the net after a few good strikes, thus they need better volley skills than power baseliners that just seldom finish the point at the net.
Counters use the power of their opponents (within a reasonable limit) for their own good.
>> which styles are likely to be good on which surfaces?
same, it should be logical...
The more on defensive, the better on slow surfaces, the more on attack, the better on fast surfaces.
>> speed of the surfaces
u can see all surface speeds by clicking on the courts to build in the coach center
>> constancy should probably be called consistency
humm, I use "constancy" coz it's not a technical skill, but really a mental skill, like everyday, u have the mental energy to go to play ur best tennis.
Just found this on wikipedia :
"In sport, consistency refers to a competitor's (or team's) ability to perform to a high standard on a regular basis.
So u might be right, I'm going to change it..!
>> What physical training increases what skills?
just look which ones are raising when u click on "ok" for 20 hours of training, it should be almost easy to notice them..!
>> Reflexes and tonicity seem to go up really easily
>> - but I don't know why and how I do it!
some trainings have some light side effects that raise other skills than the main ones they're aiming at.
>> What is top spin for?
same as real life : better for defender, better on slow surfaces. It makes ur player tired slightly faster, and is a lot less useful on faster surfaces, so it's not so good for an attacker.
>> what effect does building the courts actually have
it gives u the possibility to train on the courts u have built. You can choose the current training court of each of ur players by clicking on "surfaces" in the training screen.
Going to a tournament being already trained on its surface is a sure advantage during the 1st rounds.
>> potential detection
the little blue smoke lines represent the potential of the players. You have no constraint on ur main player to see all his real potentials, but on other players, if you potential skill is too low, you'll see a wall of smoke instead of a line.
>> Business - does that increase the value of contracts?
yup, it does. The bonus is shown on the right.
standard = 3 per players.
max = 3.75 per players; ie if u have 1 player, u can hire 3 trainers, but if you have 2 players, u can hire 7 trainers. Up to 15 trainers when u have 4 players.
>> what does free equipment give your player?
it gives free equipment...
U can see how much u're spending every week in equipment in the Accounting screen, reachable from the Sponsor screen.
>> For the initial player special talents
>> - what advantages does each one give?
read the description when u put the mouse on them...
Some give a bonus to your player's rally force, some other to ur player's service force, and hopefully, others should be very well explained...
Each bonus is quite small, but it can make the difference in a few matches of your career. (it's especially helpful when you start your career)
Please, always play with the latest version, to be sure to not face bugs already corrected..!
===> New version, labelled Beta 1.0b :

(all links lead to the same file)
I have tuned a bit the player base. The main difference is that now Federer & Sampras should be a bit better (higher chance to finish #1 like in real life)
I also corrected a bug where you were forced to go to play qualif on the next tournament, when u registered for it, when u were playing on the 2nd week of a Grand Slam. (reported by email by Jippo)
