New Features :

– Modding : it is now possible to indicate the 2D court texture is of 16:9 ratio
– World Tour : rankings & career’s end wall of fame stats updated to beginning of 2015

Changes :


– Gameplay : safe slice shot is a bit longer & slower, so it’s much easier to do a good passing shot out of it
– Gameplay : sliced volley is a bit shorter so it won’t go out too much when a player has good volley skills
– AI : CPU now handles better short ball at the net, by either volleying them or stepping a bit farther from the bounce
– Gameplay : in some cases, the safe strike done while running forward will lead to a faster & longer ball that can end fault (1)
– Gameplay : racket reach has been slightly increased when running to the sides, to match the run animation that makes the player bends a bit forward
– Gameplay : defender style gets a better shoulder height acceleration, especially when charging long time, but it’s still less good than the one of Power Baseliner and Puncher styles
– Gameplay : shoulder height bonus is now also applied to the short acceleration (2)
– Gameplay : short strike & short acceleration precision significantly enhanced when the opponent is at the net (3)
– Gameplay : volley jump reach has been lowered a bit on clay, especially for volleyer style
– Gameplay : volley acceleration & short acceleration difficulty significantly lowered (4)
– Gameplay : strike speed handicap on difficulty ball for the acceleration & short acceleration slightly lowered when the consistency skill is high (5)
– AI : CPU handles better the situation when its opponent does a safe strike following by a net rush
– AI : CPU does slightly better passing shots (ie: it tries to aim farther from its opponent)
– AI : CPU covers a bit more its back when running back to the center (and a tiny bit less the opposite side), so it’s a bit harder to wrong-foot it
– AI : CPU lobs less often, except if its opponent is very close of the net
– AI : CPU volley quality noticeably raised ; ie: its reach isn’t better than before, but if it hits the ball, it’ll do less faults and better volleys

Bug fixes :


– AI : CPU was something deciding to smash, but was still using the volley animation
– AI : CPU wasn’t stepping in if needed on return of serve, and thus could easily be aced by slow sliced serves
– World Tour: players weren’t wearing white/grey for UK Slam
– World Tour : loading a different saved game was losing the current match score
