OK, you may say that our players don't live up to your expectations of nowadays' video games graphics. Fair enough, we don't have the means of big companies and we are more concerned about our game being realistic tennis-wise than graphically.
However, player edition in Full Ace will allow you to modify them in almost any way possible, and to create as many of them as you want. It will come in handy when you don't want to face the same opponents again and again in tournaments around the world. And it will allow you to cope with our lack of official licences. Any past, present or even future tennisman (or woman, in time) can appear when you will be playing your version of Full Ace, all you need is to create him (or her).

Full Ace forums open

We have installed a forum space dedicated to Full Ace, which is available through the link on the left. This will be the place to discuss about the game and hopefully many other things. We will of course be available through this forum. You will probably understand though that we won't be able to answer all the questions you may ask about our project, whether because we want to keep things to ourselves or we just don't have the time. Nevertheless, we will try our best to be available and inform you.
Full Ace is online !

Today, with this website, we are proud to present you our effort in bringing you the experience of a professional tennis player wrapped in an online distributed video game, which name will be Full Ace.
This project is the result of several years of frustration as a tennis fan and a video games player. Therefore, it will provide everything one got used to expect in a tennis game: full length matches, exhibitions, tournaments and a career mode. Of course, an online mode is also planned.
Nonetheless, we think what matters most is gameplay. In order to provide a maximum diversity of situations, we will use the most realistic physics model to compute ball movement, including spin influence. More than that, we intend to provide a game that really puts you in charge of what matters in professional tennis: positioning, timing, anticipation, risk management, and strategy.
Full Ace is developed for Windows. Linux and Mac versions should follow shortly though.
Using all the displaying power of computers isn’t our priority, so Full Ace should be playable on a GeForce 2/3, PIII 800 MHz PC or better. A joypad shouldn’t be mandatory, but highly recommended for best experience.
Here you will find all the information about our progress. Right now several screenshots of stadiums are available by clicking on the “Screenshots” menu entry. More news, screenshots, then videos and demos will follow in time.
