Custom Rackets? And other questions

Postby Cup8489 » 01 Aug 2010, 06:23

Hi all, I had a few questions:
Firstly, I was wondering if there was any way to use custom rackets in game, I seem to remember a screenshot of someone using the Yonex Rqis 001 XL (Ivanovic's frame) in game, but i'm wondering if there's any way to customize your own? I was hoping to make a replica of the Pro Staff Tour 90, but have no idea how to go about doing so. This is for either 2009 or 2011, though i have the latter.

Also, Is there any way to play as a real player in world tour mode, or are you REQUIRED to use a custom character? I've always wanted to try playing as Sampras, but he's in-game already. Any answers are helpful, thank you.

If you want custom rackets, there are several threads in the Mods forum with custom rackets (and outfits). If you don't know how to install custom rackets, there is a document with the game (How to Mod Tennis Elbow 2011/2009) that explains how to add things like rackets.

If you want to play as an existing player, then you can either turn on "watch AI matches" in the options (Misc options >>> view all matches) and then select to watch their matches, which would allow you to play additional matches to those of your of your custom player. To play instead of watch just set their controls to Human not AI.

Or, create the player you want in the player editor and start new World Tour as them. I think (not sure) that you can first remove the AI version of the player by deleting their entry from the Players.ATP (or WTA) file in the data folder. There are some limitations to this as well, like starting age and stats.

read in the game folder "Data\HowToMod.html" ; then edit the Player base & remove the player you want to incarnate. Be careful, it'll invalidate your current saved games. After, start a new game & create it as your own player.
