Tennis Elbow 2011 Mods
 
After seeing a Top Spin 4 thread and playing the game for quite a while, I wanted to share with you my recent discovery. Tennis Elbow 2011.

The game itself is decent, good mechanics and good controls once you get used to them, but what impressed me the most is the fact that it is open for modding. You can basically create new courts, player outfits and rackets, and most importantly - Animations.

Check it out:

The quality is not the best, but you can still the strokes, moment and pace resemblance.

If you are looking for a solid PC Tennis SIM, that has depth - TE11 is a great option. Highly recommend it, but ONLY modded, with correct animations.

Got my new mac; just have to install windows, get in some practice, and I'm there!

How do you activate the game with the key?

Just checked this out. The courts and fans look amazing but the player model seems closer to Ps2 than current gen player models found in Grand Slam Tennis/Top Spin 4. I wish I could use my player models from Grand Slam Tennis2 and put them on the perfect USOpen court from Tennis Elbow. Thanks for the links!

Wow I think this truly may be the most realistic tennis game of them all. I agree about the character graphics not being as good as others, but personally that's not the most important thing IMO. Realistic play is the most important.

Absolutely, agree 100%

Ping pong is almost better than the newest teniis videogames out now :twisted:

They have good graphics but horrible game play...

Before this, I thought Dream Match Pro was the most realistic. But this game definitely surpasses that.

Does anyone know how people are making these Fed-Berdych, Nadal-Djoko videos from the game? How do you make those matchups happens without playing a tour match? Is there some exhibition mode where you can pick any players?

Can a player hit out that is behind the baseline? Every out is on sidelines?
IMO most realistic pc tennis is fullace tennis.

djarvik, how do you copy the contents of the ITST mod file to the original T.E. folder???

I can't get it to work.

djarvik 09-17-2012 03:08 PM

Use winrar to open the patch file into a separate folder on desktop. Create that folder first. Then copy all the content to root folder of TE:

Open the folder on desktop
Cntrl A (select all)
Cntrl C (copy)
Navigate to root folder of TE
Cntrl V (paste)
When it asks you if you want to replace existing files - click "yes".


Hope it helps, let me know.

DRII 09-18-2012 01:54 PM

Cool thanks,

it was the bitzipper program, it didn't extract properly. The winrar worked and extracted the mod file correctly and everything is working.

Now time to practice. How do you use the pro players, are they only in the world tour? I don't see any on the character sheet...

djarvik 09-18-2012 04:55 PM

You need to create ITST profile. The players are saved there.

Look for "Instructions for installing Tennis Elbow 2011 ITST Mod 1.08" and go to 4 and read on.

DRII 09-19-2012 04:57 AM

Ok thanks...

everything is fine now.

I can hardly win a point practing against the other pros on master series level???

djarvik 09-19-2012 10:07 AM

Yeah, they are brutal. Start at junior 1 level and go up as you develop. Most guys on ITST tour can hang with Pro 1-10.

Oh man, I guess I have alot of work to do...

theres no special power technique; right? like ts3 had the risk buttons...

Is the 'acceleration' strike considered the power strike?

djarvik 09-25-2012 05:56 AM

Correct, no special power techniques at all. If you want the most powerful shot possible, use acceleration and make sure your positioning is perfect, that includes your racket STRINGS" hitting the ball. Position is everything. T?he time you spend in position to hit is also important, the longer you are in that spot, the more precise and powerful you can hit.

A few tips/suggestions:

- Remap your keys or pad and make sure you have separate buttons for Regular stroke, Short stroke, Regular acceleration and Short acceleration. Short shots (both regular and acceleration) are the hardest to execute, you have to be in near perfect position. Think of it as a finishing shot that you would hit from inside the court. Use mostly regular shots and accelerations. I also took out top spin on a separate button. Ideally, you should be able to make each button on your PS3 controller hit a different shot. Hard to get accustomed to, but gives you ultimate control without potability of errors in shot selection.

- Positioning is the same for both, online or offline, so training offline is good for that. But aiming is different. Online is much more sensitive, meaning you will have to aim for less time then you do offline. Don't get put off by that, you will quickly realize that fast aiming IS better, it always you to hit better shots on the run and when you have little time to prepare.


There is more that I am probably missing now, so if you have questions, post and I will try to help.
