Court Speeds

Postby michaelwest777 » 23 Mar 2007, 19:50

[Surface speeds]

Hey Rob :-) Just go to the coach centre, via hire and buy. If you click on the courts (you don't have to buy) they describe the speeds there.

I think it's:
Slow: Clay
Mid-slow Plus: Synthetic
Normal: Cement
Normal +: Blue-Green Cement
Mid Fast: Indoor Hard
Mid Fast+: Carpet
Fast: Grass

Possible bug: Hired G Garcia Lopez in week 10 (rank 76 singles / 110 doubles) Got to week 11, and get the message that he has to play Miami. I select him to play both singles and doubles, and get told that he has to qualify for the doubles. Get to see the draw, then get told that they have a wild card into the main event at Miami. Get to the next week, and....nothing! He doesn't play either the singles or the doubles, when he should clearly have been in the draw for both.

@Rob4590 :
send me your saved games around Miami, if you still have them...


I'm going to rename Indoor Synthetic to Indoor Carpet.

PS: I'll answer all other questions a bit later... :)

@Rob4590 :
>> could we have both the singles and doubles ranking shown

done

>> the level had defaulted back to junior, not staying at master

fixed

>> court speeds

yup, michaelwest777 & u got the speeds right... :)
"Indoor synthetic" and "Indoor carpet" were the same, so I renamed the 1st one. (it seems atptennis.com uses both names to design the same kind of surface)

>> there are two icons with AC on them

fixed !

>> so don't have that save game any more

bad luck... If it happens again, don't hesitate to send me ur saved games.
But maybe I had already corrected it, coz I looked for another similar bug reported in the french topic : in this one, the player stopped to play for many weeks. I may have corrected this one, so maybe the one u reported as well is corrected too.

@michaelwest777 :
>> Nottingham Intl Series tournament

it's back to week 24 ! (it was an error, I wanted to send a challenger from week 24 to week 10)

>> Intl Gold series event is played in Vienna

fixed !

>> player qualities are all rather similar

did u notice this on best players ? or the players u meet in challengers & lower ?
was it exactly "rather similar" for u ?
Best players can't have too low forehand or backhand; such a weakness would make them totally unable to reach the top world rankings...
But it may have some more tuning to do... Or some skills are just badly set. But I have just tuned them 2 days ago for the best players, all the famous ones, I think. So in the versions since yesterday, it should be ok, except if I made some mistakes, which is still possible... :)


@Everybody :
====> New version :
http://www.managames.com/download.php?T ... r_ffbk.exe
/!\ Attention : coz I swapped 2 tournaments between the week 10 and the week 24, if your game is around these weeks, it might have troubles, or even crash with the new version.
If your saved game is not between the weeks 7 to 11, and 21 to 25, it should probably be ok.
Note: this new version has the ability to detect updated version, but I'm probably not going to take care of it during the beta testing, so don't rely on it till you have the final version.

Error on start

Postby trulu » 24 Mar 2007, 22:56

Hello,
When I start the last version of TEM I get following error: "The program met an unhandled exception. Crash logged in file "System.log"". Can you tell me what the problem is?

Cheers,
Luk

@trulu & NyGeL:
if you have the full version, read the warning below the last version link.
If you have only the demo, could you copy/paste all your System.log here ..?


@Jippo :
damn, u're right ! :?

so :
=====> new version :
http://www.managames.com/download.php?T ... r_ffbl.exe
/!\ Attention : the previous saved games may be not compatible with this new version.
If you have some troubles loading your current game, you might have to start a new game to solve them.
If the game crashes on start, u'll have to completely uninstall and re-install it.

Sameness

Postby michaelwest777 » 25 Mar 2007, 12:13

I'd say it is much more of an issue higher up you go. Though I have noticed recently that players have begun to differentiate their skills a bit. It was just that they all the rally skills seemed to average around 80 at first, now I am beginning to see stronger forehands. Also stronger net skills etc.

Let me see I will start a new game from the latest patch and see if this helps.

Suggestion which would be nice to see in the game

Postby trulu » 25 Mar 2007, 16:28

* It would be nice if you could see a graphic of players performance on the rankings. So you could see all ups and downs...

* I'm wondering if it is possible to show more statistics in the game like which player has won most Grand Slams, Master Series,... (historic, so also non-active players). It would also be nice if you could see an all-time list with number one players and how many weeks...

* On the page with the draw you can see in the right lower corner what type of tournament it is eg. challenger. It would be nice if you could also see the total amount of price money.

I think Trulu is right. It would be nice for example to see who won a tournament the previous year, performance graphs, earning rankings and things like that. And I read some time time ago that someone suggested a summary screen for each week that showed who had won each tournament and things like that. Is any of this possible? :D

... on with the suggestions:
I'd suggest to see in the weekly summary a forecast which tournament my player played last year and how far I came in that tournament, to see which result I'd have to defend.

that would be great i think!
but ... its all just details, I love already the way it is, and love to see how it still gets better and better :D

@trulu & lucho:
unfortunately, I cannot do everything right now, but I'm noting down ur wishes, and I'll try to do some of them in the future.

But thanks to tell me what you'd like to see in the game...
