Version 0.59 (Haruki) - Public Release


Good afternoon,

Well, this is a first for many, but I am here to drop Haruki's very first time in the spotlight. Time for him to get a chance to shine, eh?

But other than that, be aware that there may be several bugs in this. A LOT of Tennis Ace's transitions, sprite movements and the likes have been changed behind the scenes. If you see something behaving abnormally in regards to sprite movement or get any crashes, please report it so I can fix it.

Important disclaimer: In case there is an issue that causes older player saves to stop working, there really is nothing that can be done about that. Sometimes, changes are made to the code that makes some/all old saves stop working and I can't avoid making them at times. If that happens, use the 'Skip to Next Choice' function (alongside Skip Unread if needed) to get to the point where you stopped.

Here is the list of changes:

  • Haruki's eight heart events/character select days have been added
  • Programming redone for sprite transitions, movements and facial expression changes
  • Tint system added up to the end of character selection

Hope you guys will like and thanks again for playing. If you liked the game, consider supporting me on Patreon, it's what pays my bills as well as completely funds the development of the game x3

See ya~

On the CG 10 it just ends and no day 13 to 15 any one help?

God I'm torn in two, because I love that Haru will have his route, but I can't help feeling frustrated that the others aren't finished first :(

Is there a discord server for tennis ace? If so then could I join it?

(+1)

I guess there isn’t

wanted to start a new game for Harukis route....whyyy have you shortened the first name to only allowing 8 letters? the one i always choose had 9 ,meep.also the name is still shown correctly in my already existing save files, so it cant be that much of a problem having a longer first name.

Sooo, when Haruki next update come out?

Is the order of the update now was Jun-Kei-Sho-Haru? Or Haru route update will be random?

I feel that Shoichi is not going to be happy for this route

Hello. I noticed that when trying to view Haruki's profile, the game throws an error.

Unrelated to Haruki's route, but what was the reason Sho's parents divorce?  Hitoka in Shoichi's A route insinuated that Takehiko cheated?

(1 edit)

If (during Day 22) you tell Shoichi “Agree with him for now.” instead of “Ignore your father!”, you will get more information about the divorce.
I don't remember if there is more than that.

Wow, another update this month! Excited to see Haruki's route, thanks for adding it!

(+5)

How do you get to haruki's route again?

(+14)

When you get to character select choose Shoichi two times and allow Haruki to kiss you

They might be very different, but along with Jun, Haruki is one of my favorite types of character, so it's really nice to finally have a route for him. "Bad boys" with depth just make me feel all warm and fuzzy. and I do hope we get to fk him someday cuz he's very cute tbh

I'm not sure how to feel about the way his route was integrated into the story, which came a bit off as a series of very convenient events (though I can see how this is somewhat necessary for a "secret route" to even exist here) and Yuuichi suddenly getting a little bit too interested in someone he didn't even perceive as a good person for the longest time, that part felt very dating sim-esque to me, if that makes any sense, but beyond that, it was very nicely written in my opinion, and along with elements that have already been established about Haruki as a character in the past, there's definitely enough depth to him to make for a very enjoyable route, and even for Yuuichi to grow quite a bit as well. Heck, he already realized how judgmental he can be and the route just started, so yeah, very good stuff and looking forward to more.

I'm fine with the convenient events, though one thing I dislike is the attitude towards team, and calling Yuuichi's assumption as judgmental. Haruki having issues with team was noted in the existing Haruki scenes. 

Yuuichi being interested in someone he didn't consider: 

  1. Yuuichi is not the type to confess, so that would be Haruki. Yuuichi seems to be interested in anyone, and doesn't associate feeling to romance till other person. 
  2. Shoichi CS3 hints at this.

Probably the first time I ever write a comment. 
I really really like Haruki's direction, more then Jun's even tbh.
My only "issue" is that his expressions mostly don't fit the Situation, but since this is still in development I won't judge that at all.
Just wanted to say that I really love how this VN turns out and I've been following it since a decent amount of time honestly.
Keep up the good work! ^^

I love Haruki, I was so happy when I saw this update. BUT I NEED MORE!!!<3

I can't wait for the next update, you're just amazing<3

(+4)

I cannot believe I'm about to say this, but, with just this one update, you've taken Haruki from someone who I found amusing but didn't really care about and turned him into someone I think I love almost as much as I do Jun. And when you consider that my number two spot before this was Shoichi, the fact Shoichi now has to share that spot with Haruki makes the situation even more hilarious.

Seriously though... I'm really looking forward to the next installment to his route... I mean, I look forward to the updates PERIOD, but now I REALLY wanna see more of Haruki.

(+1)

Now that Haruki route is open to the public, there is the question about TA description in itcho page. Will it remain as 3 datable since you have to unlock? or update to 4 datable?
