Tennis Elbow 4 v0.49

Newsletter n°50 – January 28th 2022

Tennis Elbow 4 v0.49 released

Slowly but surely, TE4 development progress. Since last June, the main additions are :

  • Sliding animations
  • New umpire voices
  • Better & easier controller configuration
  • Smoother player animations (many bugs have been fixed !)
  • Outfit Modding and new & easier sound Modding
  • Gameplay balancing
  • Many little things here & there

The game is now a lot more complete than TE2013, but the gameplay still needs some tuning & balancing.


As a reminder, here the current main improvements compared from TE2013 :

  • Better visuals with new 3D players, stadiums & NPCs
  • Reworked physics so everything is more realistic ; as the main example : now if you hit a ball when mispositioned and/or too late, it'll always have a chance to end in the net or go wild
  • New menu design
  • Men Tour starts in 1973 & Women Tour in 1983
  • Junior Tour
  • Future fictional years are generated in real-time, so each playthrough sees different top players in the future
  • Olympiads
  • 3 new player styles to match more closely the global strategy of what I'd call aggressive defensive players (ie: players who base their game mostly on defense, but also can feel pretty aggressive)
  • Improved artificial intelligence
  • Dynamic animation system so the player always hits the ball with the center of his racket (as long as it's not too far from him, or really too much on the body)

You'll find a roadmap for the planned features and more info here : .
