TE2009 : Beta 3

General discussions about the 3rd edition of Tennis Elbow

TE2009 : Beta 3

Postby manutoo » 24 Oct 2008, 20:13

Hello,

the game is almost done..!
Now it just misses the translations, the doc & some new music and it'll be the final release..! (hopefully all of this should happen before I die from tiredness :? )

It also misses better outfit config for the top players in the World Tour. I'll do a special topic about this soon, coz I'll need ur help..! ;)

www.managames.com/download.php?TennisElbow2009_fb3.exe [ ~13MB ]

New Stuff in the version :
- new outfit options
- World Tour done, player bases updated to 2008 season
- New zoom option for Camera Modes

Right now, I'm super tired and no time to carefully test, so I hope I didn't do too much mistakes. Hopefully, you'll let me know about them, and I'll correct them & update the version tomorrow morning if needed...

Now, I need 2 or 3 beta testers ready to buy the full version now with a 50% discount to test the World Tour, to be sure no big bug is left there...
Let me know if u're interested; u should have at least 5 hours free this week-end to test the game... (write ur answer in this topic and I'll send u a PM with the buy link if you're chosen).

If you bought TE2006 since the 1st September, let me know, u'll get TE2009 for free to beta test it right away.

[...Cut out...]
Also, could it be possible to make a setting where the user can adjust BallDiffScale and PrecisionScale without having to go to the .ini file?
Could you define what each one means? I'm still a little unclear about the difference between the two.

@Everybody :
If you want to help me to create the outfit for ur favorite players, have a look here :
https://www.managames.com/Forum/ftopic1685.php


@solarisaint & Tscott415:
Thanks, I sent u a PM with the link to buy the full version.
As u were the only 2 candidates, it was easy to choose... :P
Although, there's still a slot left if someone has many free time in the next 2 or 3 days...


@Brad1981 :
>> make a setting
Humm, no, this is a very advanced setting which can easily mess up the gameplay big time, so it'll stay in the .ini for now...
:roll:

BallDiffScale => reduce/raise the penalties due to misplacement in the danger zone & around the sweet spot
PrecisionScale => reduce/raise the time needed to do an accurate shot, either u have misplacement penalties or not.
Try with the aiming helper on, u should easily see the effect of the PrecisionScale...

@Everybody :
Version updated :
- a bunch of little glitches corrected in the World Tour, the main one being the "Next Match" button won't break every week, so if u select a tournament after several week, u won't have to click many times anymore


@btaylor :
Thanks..! :)
And nope, I didn't change the volleys, u might be getting better..! ;)


@vaidisova :
This is strange...
U never had problem with the sound fx with TE2006.?

Manutoo,

i'm not sure about TE2006 though. maybe i'll check next time.

anyway there are couple of bugs i found;

- when the match finished. the fastest serve at "match summary" isn't right. it combined all the number of the fastest serves from all 3 sets (for example, 195+186+202) instead showing the fastest one.

- i played Future tournament at Germany. i had qualified in singles and then played doubles before losing in 1R. the problem is i can't move on to play in the main draw of singles after that loss bc the result show i lost 1R both singles and doubles.

- the "swap ends" doesn't work @ world tour. i can't go to play at the opposite side of the court.

vaidisova, if you still have it, could u send me your saved game just before the start of the week where u lost in R1 of doubles ..?
It should be in "C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow 2009\Profiles\Default" (or "Default\Wta" if u play with women), it should be either Tour07.sav, Tour08.sav or Tour09.sav ; and send it compressed in .rar or .zip to contact(at)managames.com ...


( I'll answer other questions & people later... )

that's the first week of my player. there is no the previous one :cry:
my player played 3 matches in qualifying and then played qualifying match for doubles. after losing i saved the game and then tried to go for "next match" and it said i need to pick the next tournament bc i failed to qualify for both singles and doubles.

tell me if you still want this saved game anyway.
