Postby Elias » Wed, 06 Jun 2012 07:07

ITST Mod 1.18 - January 17th 2017

ITST Mod is a Tennis Elbow 2013 game modification dedicated to online competitive play, bringing a balanced roster of 36 pros custom animated players, 70+ custom 2D courts, custom outfits, sounds, and custom menu interface.

The mod is designed to be used as a standard to play the ITST Tennis Elbow Tour competition wich is hosted @ intertopspintour.net .
It's updated on a regular basis to add new content (animations, HD courts) and fine tune the gameplay balance.

The mod doesn't contain any customization for offline World Tour Career mode (maybe in the future).

1.18 Roster Stats Google Spreadsheet :

Thanks to Yippie-Caiay we have Roster Stats:

Yippie-Caiay wrote:Hi! I bring to you a datasheet with all the players included in the ITST Mod 1.18! I recommend downloading it so you can interact with it, otherwise it's pretty useless.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxZy7 ... zlNSk9vczg

A couple of things to note:

- The last "Overall" stat is an arbitrary one made by me! It takes into account the things that I consider important, but the idea is that you do your own weighted average based on what you want. (And if you don't know what that is, look it up, it's pretty cool). :wink:

- Remember that Consistency and Precision are values that have to be looked relative to the Power stat. In this case, I already took that into account. So if the Forehand Power stat of a certain player is 85 and his precision is 83, the Forehand Precision will read "-2".

- The "Overall" FH, BH, and Serve stats are calculated as FH Power + FH Cons. + FH Prec, so for example: 84 FH Pow; 82 FH Cons.; 88 FH Prec. -> FH Overall = 86 (84 - 2 +4).

- It didn't take as much time as you might think. I was able to import all the data from the text files (*.Ini files) into Excel, so from there it was kind of automatic. You can get an idea of what I did by looking at page 2 of the file.

Enjoy!



Instructions for installing Tennis Elbow 2013 ITST Mod 1.16:

YouTube Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lS_cmATF4sM&hd=1

1. Install the last Tennis Elbow build.

2. Copy your Key.txt file to the main folder of Tennis Elbow 2013. You receive this file from ManaGames via email when you buy respectively register the game.

A warning: Never give your Key.txt to any other person and report every person asking for your Key.txt via private messages to the ITST hosts or management.

3. Launch the game, go to ``Misc Options'' and at ``Advanced Options'' switch to ``On''.

You then will see a smiley face icon to the upper right menu in the game. Click on it and select ``Create New Profile''. Type in the name "ITST" (all uppercase). If you want you can switch "Select on Startup" to "On", but you do not have to. Finally quit the game, you are done with this step.

4. Download the ITST Mod (see download mirrors above), launch the installer and as destination choose the Tennis Elbow 2013 main folder.

5. Now restart the game: The ITST Profile should be active and you should be able to load the characters in the character sheet. You are able play offline (Training Club Warm-Up or Match) and online from here on.

Please, DO NOT change the stats for ANY of the players. Each player will comes with a unique CRC # wich you can find in the PLayer CRC thread here : viewtopic.php?f=1047&t=16487 . You will have to make sure that your opponent has the correct CRC# before you start the match. To see the stats and CRC Number of yourself and your opponent you just have to press F5 or F6. This will assure that the stats of the player he is using are exactly the same as in ITST profile.


From there we will update this mod from time to time to add better courts, outfits, animations, and as well tweaking characters stats until we reach a good balance.

notes :

* The mod doesn't contains any offline mode career modifications, the
main objective is online match-ups.


Surfaces :

Surfaces in vanilla TE are very fast alike it was in the 1980's / 1990's era.
very fast grass with some crazy low bounce, wich is even more difficult to play with the last TE builds modification about movement (more inertia at movement start), and the characters speed we use in ITST roster.

I tweaked the surfaces (not all) physics in ITST mod to reach something closer to nowadays surfaces behaviour, or somewhere in between.

- Clay / Plexicushion (newline synthetic) are still the same as vanilla ones.
- Blue Clay is a bit faster.
- Then comes vanilla Cement, wich is used unmodified for some tournaments (like Miami Laykold surface, Tokyo and a few others.
- Then the Us Open surface wich will be used in most of the US season and several other tournaments in the calendar. This one is modified from vanilla Blue-Green Cement, a bit less friction, but with a higher bounce.
- Indoor Hard has also a higher bounce than the vanilla one.
- Two types of grass :
* a main grass used by all grass tournaments except wimbledon.
* wimbledon grass wich bounce is higher than others grass tourneys.
About grass this means you will have to play Wimbledon on Wimbledon custom courts, and other grass tournaments using any custom grass court of your choice, except Wimbledon ones and London olympics (wich is wimbledon court).

You can still compare to original TE surfaces using the vanilla courts wich are still included in ITST mod.

Check the tournament list and surface color codes below.

2D Courts / Graphics :

There is one court selectable for each 2012 calendar tournament, or sometimes 2 courts available with different cameras views, and usually 3 different courts available for grand slams, though if you are using 3D mode, the court loaded will be the same for those tournaments.

Still there is not always good quality courts available for each tournaments, therefore you can see it like reserved spots for future use when some nice HD courts will be available in the future, we will then replace current ones in the right spot.

When i couldn't find any good court for a tournament, i used then a good one from another tournament playing on the same surfaces, For example, Los Angeles or Toronto are both using Indian Wells graphics, some clay tournaments uses a nice Davis Cup (Roquebrune) clay court, etc.

Anyway you can choose any court to play your match as long the surface physics are the same (see the detailed list & color codes below).


Online :

TE ITST Tour is played with the following setup :

When hosting a game, uses this values :


    Auto-positionning : slow (in the character sheet)
    Controls : simulation or Elite controls.
    Ball Preview : Off
    Tiredness : On
    Skills : Free mode (other modes would modify the char stats defined)



Try to always use your nickname as network name instead of the default character name you are using, as the ITST mod users community is slowly growing we need to know who is hosting or joining a game to avoid mistakes especially when we have to play an official tour match.

There is a new feature in TE, wich prevents a player to join your game if he doesn't have the same mod version. Any people playing with vanilla TE (or a different mod) will receive a message "You don't have ITST1.08 mod" when trying to join your game. (there is still a flaw though in this feature and sometimes a demo user may succeed to join for some reason, in this case you won't be able to play as both games are not modded and this will provoke a desync loop. If this happens i would recommend a "ban user for this session" to avoid it again)

The character sheet and anims selection are unlocked in this version for testing purposes / balance tests and feedback. This version can't connect a game online with an opponent using the regular 1.12 mod. Both players have to use the Test 1.12 to connect eachother. Previews are activable online.


Download :

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?lm6qvkh2n1xmz81


Use the same installation steps as described for the regular version.

Thx guys, you're welcome :)
Though i couldn't test this last version online this morning, about desyncs etc, so give some feedback about it when you'll have tested some. It should be ok as it's based on the test patch we tested with Vmoe86 yesterday, though we never know, i still may have introduced a last minute bug packing it.. i hope not :P and we still didn't tested *all* match-ups

nice :!: sounds good so far :)

Thanks to Manutoo mostly because he introduced new features in last TE builds for us to be able to play online with a modded game. Never seen such a proactive support for any commercial or indie game before, it's just outstanding , i would buy this game x3 times if it was needed ;)

I think it would be a good idea for newcomers to have at least pictures for each step they have to do or maybe a YouTube video. If the idea is welcome, I'll do it (and maybe a bit more, like a printable instruction booklet in PDF format).

Absolutely, I think I'll donate 15 Euro to him (and thinking of it I haven't donated ITST anything, yet, shame on me :oops: ), great effort.

Yes it's a good idea, feel free to do it, you can edit one of the above reserved posts for it, i created those for such purposes.

Managames server seems to have some issues today (not responding or very long to), so at times it may be difficult to play online matches.

If you want to buy some copies for your grandparents or your neighbors, I won't mind... :P

Elias wrote:Managames server seems to have some issues today

It seems the server stalls sometimes, I have no idea why, though...
And when there's big affluence, then the stalling lasts longer, so we got several times total blocking of the server in the past days... :?
Usually, it lasts only a couple of minutes, at worst 5 or 10 minutes, though, and no more than 4 or 5 times per day.

Not sure if it was the court....


No reason it should be the court at all, if none of both players added modded court/physics.

Probably another reason, bad news though, we'll try to dig it.

Did some of you re-used your old ITST.ini file after re-installing the game with the new mod ? Just asking because this can lead to some issues about anims (because there is also in this file some values notifying the number of anims in the game, and using an old file would lessen the current amount available). Better to always create a new profile manually, then setup again manually again your keyboard or joypad setup (or you can just copy paste the [Keys1] section from your old ITST.ini file, in the new one. :lol:

I delete everything when I do a reinstall.
We played again with him hosting, and it was desync free besides the first game :)
