Created by tennis fans, which are regular ranked players, Tennis Elbow 2013 is a tennis game with a fun, realistic gameplay. Tennis Elbow is the only game that will give you such an impression to be on the court, and will make you feel the emotions of the match with such realism : you will be conquered by the ultra-realistic ball trajectories, the artificial intelligence replicating the players' behaviour with precision, and the complete range of shots and game situations. Its intuitive gameplay will let you easily control the player and the ball, and even if you're not a tennis fan, you will have a lot of pleasure and fun to run and strike balls all around the court, fighting in all games ! And last but not least, with its online mode you could play against other real human players in fantastic online tennis matches ! (Note: the online mode is only available on the Windows version, not on the Mac OSX & Linux versions)

Tennis Elbow 2013 v1.0a has been released on Desura !

Here the changelog listing the new features & changes :

New Features :
- Gameplay : you can now release your button(s) slightly before striking the ball on your serve ; that will allow you to reach the net slightly more easily ; to use that feature, release the pressed button(s), then release the direction (if needed) and then push forward (+ left/right if needed) ; it also works for walking backward, but in that case, it's just very little bit effective
- Stats : average rally length has been added to the match stat screen
- Online : Cooperative Doubles => you can now play 2 human players vs 2 CPU players
- Menu : added a "Recordings" screen, allowing you to replay previously recorded matches (to record match : set Recordings to "Real-Time" ; and if it's lagging, then set it to "Buffered")
- Recordings : resumed matches can now be recorded
- Camera : 3rd Person Cam has a now a real unzoom slider
- Modding : new way to install Mods, which make easier installing, managing & uninstalling, especially when having several Mods
- Modding : it's now possible to load different nets according to the court
- Modding : it's now possible to play different strike sounds according to the court
- Modding : you can now have the sun parameters in the Court.ini ; check Court07's .ini to see how it's done

Changes :
- Gameplay : safe shot at net now produces a slightly slower, longer & higher ball than before, usually making it much easier to strike a passing-shot out of it
- Hardware : game now detects SpeedStep more smartly (it's a feature that can make your PC run slower or faster and could mess up the game speed)

Bug Fixes:
- World Tour : start year was incorrectly set when starting a new full career with an existing player
- Rendering : 3rd Person Camera wasn't turning & was delayed when playing online
