Women Base for TEM : your help is needed !

Postby manutoo » 22 Sep 2007, 11:59

Hello,

here the 1st version of the women base for TEM :
managames.com/download.php?TemWTA_efa.zip
I also included a Tour.ini with the Davis Cup countries updated to match the women base.

Copy both files to the "Data" subfolder. Be sure to rename your current "Players.Ini" & "Tour.Ini" files so you could revert to the men base if you want.
It may be also recommended to create a new profile before to switch to the women base, coz you're going to lose your current saved game.

You should be able to play the game like with the men, it should have no difference (I'll add some in the incoming weeks).
If you notice anything wrong, thanks to report it here.

I quickly checked the play style of the best players, but I don't know them very well, so it still may have some mistakes.
For the skills, it's 100% random, so that's there I'm going to need you, expert WTA fans ! ;)

You can edit the "Players.ini" with a text editor, but it's better to avoid the Windows NotePad coz it's a very big file and the NotePad is very slow to operate it.

If you want to do some modifications, for now, you should only edit your 10 (or less) favorite players, and post their new profiles in this topic.
Use the "Code" tag (available from the tag bar above the edit zone) to display the profiles.

example :
Code: Select all
[Player0001]
Name         =   Steffi Graf
Country         =   DEU
BestRank      =   1
Character      =   1
Style         =   PowerBaseliner
Birthdate      =   14/06/1969
Body         =   175 60
FirstYear      =   1990
StartRank      =   1
RankPerYear      =   1, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 28, 9
SingleDouble      =   -0.45
Forehand_Power      =   50
Forehand_Consistency   =   59
Forehand_Precision   =   50
Backhand_Power      =   48
Backhand_Consistency   =   54
Backhand_Precision   =   52
Service_Power      =   17
Service_Consistency   =   54
Service_Precision   =   53
Return         =   32
Lob         =   39
Passing         =   35
Dropshot      =   11
Counter         =   12
ForehandVolley      =   9
BackhandVolley      =   10
Smash         =   15
NetPresence      =   9
Lift         =   51
Speed         =   43
Stamina         =   50
Tonicity      =   46
Reflexes      =   18
Strength      =   34
Concentration      =   77
ColdBlood      =   84
Constancy      =   85
Tactic         =   48
Positioning      =   33
SelfEsteem      =   20
Motivation      =   74
DoubleSpirit      =   10
Hand         =   Right
Color_Skin      =   0
Color_Shirt      =   24
Color_Shorts      =   2
Color_Cuff      =   0
Color_Hair      =   1


Explanations about the parameters :
Most parameters are well self-explaining.
Here more details :
RankPerYear = 1, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 28, 9
This line will determines the rank of the player for each year. The player won't be necessary at this rank at the end of the year, but she should be quite close. It's used to determine her strength. This strength will be used to normalize most of the skills.
A rank of "-1" means the player won't play on this year.

These skills are not normalized : "Concentration", "ColdBlood", "Constancy", "Motivation".
Instead, they are interpolated between the value in the base (when rank is on BestRank) to half of the base value (when at the 1000th rank).
Example :
ColdBlood = 78
with :
BestRank = 3
When RankPerYear is 3, then ColdBlood will be 78%; if RankPerYear is 1000, then ColdBlood will be 78 / 2 = 39% .

"FirstYear" is the player's career starting year.

"SingleDouble" is the affinity for the singles or the doubles :
-1 => only singles
-0.5 => mostly singles
0 => equally singles & doubles
+0.5 => mostly doubles
+1 => only doubles

Body = 177 62
means 177cm for 62kg .

If you need some precisions, don't hesitate to ask.

How to set the skills ?
As all the skills (except Concentration, ColdBlood, Constancy & Motivation) are normalized in real time by game depending of the rank to reach during the current year, it won't make the player any stronger to set all her skills to 90 instead of 10.
So the idea is to set the skills around the value 35 :
- set to 35 if the player is normally skilled for this skill
- set above 35 if the player is relatively more skilled in this skill than in her other skills, to 40 if only a bit, to 50 if a lot, to 60 if very much
- set below 35 if the player is relatively less skilled in this skill than in her other skills, to 30 if only a bit, to 20 if a lot, to 10 if very much

For Concentration, ColdBlood, Constancy & Motivation for the best players, set them high from 75 to 95 depending of the best rank (from 20 to 1), and lower them a bit when the player has a weakness in this particular area.

Hello Serena_Fan,

Ok, I guess she's a puncher then ( = hit strong in the ball, and go to the net on good opportunity).

By PM, you asked me more details about the installation, here it goes :
1- open the directory "C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow Manager\Data" (if you used the default installation directory)
2- rename Players.ini to PlayersATP.ini and Tour.ini to TourATP.ini (the .ini extension may be hidden, depending of your Windows configuration)
3- download the file managames.com/download.php?TemWTA_efb.zip
4- open the .zip file, and copy the 2 files inside to "C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow Manager\Data"
5- you're all set, just run the game ! ;)

1. Monica Seles is 2 hands on both sides
2. Davenport and Venus Williams are Power Baseliners
3. The women don't have the same schedula has the men.
4. Maybe bigger contracts Venus and Serena signed 50 million dollar endoresement contracts with Nike and reebok.

0- As stated by WTAfan, this is not the new version, this is only the women player list (and even not the tournament list !)

1- So the line in the Player.ini should be :
Hand = Left 2HBH 2HFH
(for all people willing to do modif, this will be needed for all players with a 2 hands backhand or/and forehand)

2- done

3- see 0- ... ;)

4- IRL, men can also get a lot higher sponsors contracts, but I tuned the game so the money won't come really too fast

I'm not sure about the appearance aspect. Do you have color codes (that way it'd be easier for me)? I'd like her to have the turquoise top and shorts and be the darkest skin complexion you have.

I'll do some more. At least the ones that would be easy for me for now. Later on I'll tackle some harder stuff.

Also what does lift mean?

Hello,

1- I'm not sure, but it seems you changed the RankPerYear. If yes, then you shouldn't touch it, actually... :)

2- No need to put : 1HFH . 1 handed strike is the default value ! ;)

3- "Lift" means "Top spin" in French.

4- Skin Color :
0 = most white
1 = tan
2 = very than
3 = yellow
4 = yellow tan
5 = brown (Indian)
6 = brown tan
7 = dark red (Arabian)
8 = dark red tan
9 = black
10 = very black

5- Hair color :
0 = black
1 = brown
2 = light brown
3 = ashen blond
4 = orange (redhead)
5 = blond
6 = green
7 = blue
8 = red (really red ;) )

6- Cuff color :
0 = none
1 = white
2 = blue
3 = light blue
4 = green
5 = dark green
6 = dark blue
7 = dark red

7- for shirt & short colors, if you bought TE2006, you can look them in the player editor
I'll try to do an update soon to display the current color index in TEM.

Okey dokes. I'll leave the rankperyear alone. I'll go back and edit the other stuff now. Thanks much.
