Tennis Elbow 2009 Mac v1.0e is released (Build 49-2009.3.17) : ... [Permanent direct download link to the latest version]

/!\ Updating: when you update to a newer version, you have to transfer the "Profiles" subfolder from your previous TE2009's directory to the new installation folder to keep your saved games.

New Features :
- New Strike Styles : 1 Service, 1 Forehand (you're welcome to guess from what real player(s) they are inspired of in this topic : topic15-2209.php?start=30#p41088 )
- Sound : many new sounds for the crowd..!

Changes :
- Gameplay : Fast Deceleration lowered ; ie: you need a bit more time to stop to run ; it's closer of real life, but still a bit faster than real life to stop to run
- Gameplay : Percentage of B1+B2 & B1 serves in slightly lowered when having the Service Consistency above the Service Power ; this should noticeably raises the number of double faults for people not using the Button 2 to do their 2nd serve
- Gameplay : Counter style slightly enhanced ; he can now take the ball significantly earlier than other styles without much handicap
- Gameplay : Kicked serve is a bit shorter
- Gameplay : Ball difficulty raised when very short time to prepare a volley
- Gameplay : Drop Shot harder to do when moving
- Gameplay : Top Spin lowered when striking on the run
- Gameplay : Auto-Positioning speed raised when smashing
- Gameplay : Short Strike is too long on difficult balls, instead of becoming a strange drop shot
- Gameplay : initial speed after serve lowered, making it a little bit more hard to serve-volley
- Gameplay : when missing a volley, there's less chance the ball will clip the net & fall on the other side
- AI : CPU will now lob significantly less when he's close of the net
- AI : CPU will do a tiny bit more long faults and a tiny bit less wide faults
- Doubles AI : when serve-volleying CPU is going closer to the sideline
- Animation : smoothed animation when still running at the end of a strike
- Animation : Backhand slice tuned

Bug Fixes:
- World Tour : very tall players (above 205cm) can now serve correctly
- Animation : Head shouldn't look in the back anymore (not sure if the exorcism worked well or not, though :fear: )
- AI : at net, the CPU will now almost always play a ball that should land on the side line, instead of almost never playing it
- Doubles AI : both CPU shouldn't go to the same side anymore
- Doubles : Human player doesn't want to catch the ball anymore when his partner is receiving a service

Notes :
- Changelog of previous versions is here : topic15-2804.php
- as usually, if you notice any glitch or bug, thanks to report them !
- Build 48 was Windows only
