for clarity, I restart a topic for the new recording version available with the Build 30.
Matches recorded with the Build 29 cannot be replayed with the Build 30. (coz of too much small changes in the gameplay)
And in a general way, a match recorded with a Build can be correctly replayed only with this same Build.
Here the explanations again ==>To turn on recording
, open the "Tennis.ini" (or the .ini of your custom profile) and change this line, under [Record], from :
AutoRecord = 0
AutoRecord = 1
You can also set it to :
AutoRecord = 2
In that case, the recording is buffered till the end of the point ; use this option if you get some lag with AutoRecord = 1 .
This will put the records in the subdirectory "Profile\Demos".
Note: if the game is recording the match, then the "Help
" menu won't be available anymore from the "In-game" menu (because that menu allows modification of game parameters).
Then, to watch a recorded match
, open the "Tennis.ini" (or the .ini of ur custom profile) and change this line, under [Record], from :
//Play = 2009-03-17.12-00 - P.1 vs P.2.dmo
Play = [Name of the Demo File You want to watch]
Note: don't forget to remove the "//" at beginning of the line..!
Then launch the game, and enter either Warmup or Match (the game engine will set it accordingly to the recorded type anyway), and the replaying should be in action..! All menus should still be working, so u can watch stats or leave the game anytime u want...
When you watch a match, you can press :
- F10 : to skip to next point
- left Control + F10 : to skip to next game
- left Shift + F10 : to skip to next set
(sorry it's not possible to rewind now, but maybe I'll add this possibility in the future... You should still be able to watch the point replay, though)
Note: It cannot record a resumed World Tour match, the match has to start from the beginning..!
You are very welcome to post your recorded matches in this topic, especially the online ones (in .zip or .rar to make them as small as possible).
It's likely there are still some issues with the recording/replaying, so if u notice anything, thanks to let me know...How to post your recorded match in this topic ?
0- zip your recorded file (optional)
1- when replying to this topic, look at bottom of the page for "Upload attachment", and click on it (u have to be a registered member to see this option)
2- locate the file in your HD (usually in "C:\Program Files\Tennis Elbow 2009\Profiles\Demos" )
3- click on "Add the file", u're done... EDIT - Replay Note:
You can replay your saved matches only with the same version/Build of the game ; if you try an old version .dmo, it'll likely go out of synchro pretty often, if not all the time..!
Even with the same version, desynch can occur, but it shouldn't be frequent (it's same than desync when playing Online).
