      5] Start the SDK Server
      After you entered a valid license key, you can start the SDK server from the main screen. When the server has started the PLAY button will be enabled which will start the game. Make sure the ProTee Golf Interface is running in the system tray.

      6] Start The Golf Club
      The game will start when you click the Start Game button. The controller will close and the game display/resolution will open. You can select any resolution and graphics quality supported by your graphics card. From 640x480 upto 4K Ultra High Resolution. The graphics detail level can be set in the game itself.

                It's funny as it was only about 4 or so months ago that there was a post on a forum that said too bad TGC was a video game and not a simulator. When you think about other company's software release dates or how it is some times years later and after they talked about new software that was to be released soon and still not there.

                This was some pretty impressive work to get TGC and Protee together to make this happen and fast.

                And a major part in this all is Zmax and I too want to thank him for all he does which is too much to type here.

                A big THANKS....

                  Thanks for the kind words SFR. I would like to also thank all the beta testers. Couldn't have done it without you guys. SFR, Hoganwoods's, and other GC2 testers played a huge roll. ProTee users as well. Like I said before, we are on a fast train to simulator paradise. Lets keep it moving.

                    Totally agree!

                      I'll add to the thanks to all of the people at Protee, HB and the beta testers, especially Zmax. At the risk of giving him a big old head, we don't realize how lucky we are to have a champion of golf simulation like he is.

                          Zip, did you fill out the form to request a TGC license?

                          You'll need that TGC machine ID.

                            Nope. Didn't see that. I'll do it now. Thanks!

                              Where do you find the form to request a TGC license?
