    A helpful reminder...

    If you are playing the game & think you encountered a bug (i.e. a shot that didn't react in a way that you expected), the BEST thing you can do is follow these steps:

    1) RIGHT CLICK with your mouse and hit the "Submit this problem to WGT" (it's the 2nd one from the top)

    2) In the POP-UP message, select the category of the problem (physics, graphics, etc) and then take a moment to describe what you witnessed.

    Here's an example:

    As you can imagine, millions of virtual balls are hit everyday on WGT.  But when you submit a bug log like above... it flags your shot amongst the millions so we can not only find it ASAP, but can analyze if what you described was truly a bug or not. 

    I hope that helps & hit 'em straight!

    Mister WGT I usually report playing bugs like that. I also like to save a replay if possible. Recently I had a shot which hit an invisible object and then veered off line. ( The replay is still on my profile page.) I received an answer from WGT admin that they are looking into it. Is there a way to get some follow up  feedback so we know how it turned out? I E We are still looking at it..or we found this to be the cause ..ect. Bug is fixed  .. It would be nice to know if possible. It has been nice seeing yourself and WGT staff taking a more pro active response to the community forums. Have a great thanksgiving all.  Fuzzygazz

    swdeva,

    Shift-F10 is usually the "right-click" equivalent.  You may also have a single button for it.  If you do, it would be located just to the left of the CONTROL key on the right side.

    MisterWGT, that is a professional illustration to say the least. The mechanic's of the game may very well improve.

    Hi Niviac

    Usually I can figture things like this out. But this has got me, I have a mac mouse and key board but this F-10 or alt keys dont seem to work.

    May be to make it easer for everybody is to put the submit problem report in the meun on the upper left  with chat  friends and invites.

    Just a suggestion.

    I was playing the free multi-round tourney, got to hole 4 and lost 4 straight balls as meter was uncontrollable and shots went everywhere. I withdrew from tourney and came here to tell ya..since I have made the master tier, the game loads slower, more meter flaws. getting rather tired of it, cant play a complete round without some ones game screwing up. the loading probs are not my system or net connection. any ideas?

    Very similar thing happened to me on the same hole, at the same place. Check out my replay "weird shot" to view.
