  • Trackman 4 now working with TGC2019 with both TPS 6.3 and TPS 7 installed

    I am pleased to report that the customer service at Trackman is second to none. Jimmy K at Trackman Sim support was able to install TPS 7 remotely so I can keep TPS 6.3, which is the latest version that is compatible with TGC2019, and still run the new TPS 7 and Virtual Golf 2. He did not update the firmware from 1.8x to 1.9x yet, as he said a newer version would be released I believe this week. This is a big deal, and it speaks to TM's willingness to listen to their customers and allow us the freedom to get the most from our investment in Trackman technology, kudo's to Trackman and Jimmy K! I hope this helps my fellow TGC fans.

    Which do you find works better with Trackman 4; TGC 2019, or Virtual Golf 2?

      I've attached two videos where I'm playing hole 1 of Murifield Village, one video is TGC2019 and the other is TM Virtual Golf 2, both using TM4. This is the first time i've ever recorded a video so they may be longer than you might expect. I hope this helps.

        Thanks for posting those! No doubt in my mind that Virtual Golf 2's rendition looks more natural and detailed. I think Virtual Golf 2's approach of storing the course file on the hard drive enables it to feature more vivid and unique course objects, not to mention far more authentic looking bunker lips. TGC 2019's course data is mostly stored on HB Studios server. As a result its components are more generic looking. They still look pretty sharp, but they lack more environmental distinction.

          I agree, thanks for taking the time to post these comparison videos. I find it very helpful. I think the TM Virtual Golf 2 renders significantly better and looks significantly more realistic.

            I was just thinking today of uninstalling my TPS 7 and installing 6.3 so I could play TGC this winter, maybe I need to call Trackmand and have them do it for me - do you have two different icons to launch from then? Thanks
