  • Are we getting Close to Scramble Mode

    Hey there , was wondering if we are getting close to scramble mode yet , And if not , what is the next best software that I could buy that would let me do 2 man best ball and 4 man best ball?

    thanks

    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.

      Not likely going to happen it would seem.

          Guys,
          PT are listening and there are things all listed to be looked at next opportunity round.
          These have to be worked out with HB studios so not just a case of PT adding etc.

          These things can take some time but nothing is being neglected trust me

            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

            Big bounce happens in video game so not ProTee.

          What about the friends list that doesn’t work? Or the glitch that deletes your profile?

            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.

          Not a bug, IMO. We always hit off flat lies in our Sim.

            It’s a bug from the Sim POV. This doesn’t happen in the video game because the video game is accounting for the slope and the Sim version is not.

            This should be addressed if possible.

            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.

            of course its a bug. if you hit a shot with a VLA of 8 degrees it should not be hitting the earth like you're trying to hit it up the side of a mountain when you have like 6 inches of up slope. .

          PROTEE UK I second what GungHoGolf said above in his comment. I realize the complications between protee and HB, but those are the biggest issues.

            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?

                I think the Uneekor courses can do 6 players.

                8 people in a sim round would be horrible. Try alternate shot with auto putt. I'll speed things up.

                Ability to play up to 8 players is great. I have been playing Saturday nights in the winter months for years with e6 scramble mode. Four 2 man teams. Takes about 4.5 hours. Great time.

            • #11
              the alternate shot is probably the best way to go with more than 4

                5 or more.... Alternate shot only way to go

                  mtc6409 you don’t do it through the game. Just with your group. Player A and Player B are on the same team and play alternate shot between placer C, D, and E.

                  Kinda sucks for players C,D,E. They get less golf

                  JackedUpSwing in my example C D and E play single against A and B. So a and b get less golf.

                  It is what it is though. Someone is getting less golf but that’s what happens if you play more than a foursome like some heathens.

                If there are 6 playing we have 3 2 man teams. Just play with 3 players.
                With 5 we usually have 2 players and the 3 players alternate on one player and 2 alternate on the other

                  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.
