TGC Tour - Congratulations!
Congrats to @JudgeSmails and Rooster (NET) and @Joe_S (GROSS) winning the TGC1 2020 SPRING TOUR - The Genesis Invitational !
I think E6 has it. Wish tgc would hurry up and put it in along with some much needed bug fixes. Not sure how long it's been since the last update but I believe the post by protee asking about scramble was about a year ago.
Is the big first bounce an HB Studios thing, or ProTee thing? How about the uphill lie issue with a 3-wood (not being able to clear the small hill you’re hitting up, like the lie angle isn’t being used for the shot)? Those two issues account for 90% of the grief I hear about TGC19.
Also, if you guys could put out a definitive guide to all the options in the TGC settings file, that’d be awesome.
Awesome , thanks for the reply Pro Tee... , when do you think the "next opportunity round" will be ? like in 2020 or later ? Should I be purchasing second software in meantime for scramble mode ?? hate to spend 2600 bucks on e6 to find out you TGC will have it out like next month? Thanks again
Yeah, I'm glad for the response above. But still those glitches like the profile thing, and other low hanging fruit. I have to open and close 3-4 times the game before it will open the software successfully.
Disagree, appears to be a conscious decision. Hopefully it's left alone. We can't see or feel the slope as in real life so we don't know where our shot will go if they started affecting it with a lie. Don't forget the lie angle isn't going to be just straight up, it may be a hook or fade lie. A real nightmare of unexpected effects given we often can't tell what the lie actually is in the game. Better to have no lie effects so it always matches our real life hitting conditions.
As V8 says, we can't tell what the slope is on a Sim which only make having a lie effect more annoying.
Neither approach is perfect from accurate simulation pov, for that you'd need your stance mat to tilt to match the lie angle in the sim.
PROTEE UK thanks for the update. That is refreshing to see that u r aware of issues and moving forward to alleviate same. HB has had total radio silence for awhile now about future upgrades etc. this just reaffirms my choice of TGC for simulator software. Keep plugging along. Thanks
Had people over for new years. Having 6 golfers makes it kind of awkward so we had to just do long drive and closest to the pin contests.Has protee explored the idea of increasing the limit to ~8 players?
There are a few different software options for scramble mode that I know about.
E6 Connect / E6 1.6 is probably the best option. Allows up to 8 players, They have a lot of other game modes as well. If price isn't an issue It would be my first choice. $2500 plus $300 or $600 a year subscription.
The Trackman simulation software allows up to 8 players and also offers scramble mode. Software is pretty much locked into Trackman though. So also very expensive.
Foresight FSX 2018 also offers scramble mode & up to 8 players. However as of this moment the scramble mode has some really big glitches which make it pretty terrible. Also expensive. But personally I give this software a thumbs down. Too unreliable for the price they charge. Graphics look like from 10 years ago too.
