    Yes you can run either.  I have still opened/played the Flash version and I have the PCEA version installed as well and play that regularly.

    To long a post to look back. Just started playing this a couple weeks ago. 2 things I think would help is 1. in multiplayer, put the chat on the game page, not a bubble you have to hit to see what was typed. 2. put a button for the shot pal on the game page, instead of having to go back to options to get & dismiss.

    Interesting thoughts, and thanks for sharing them.

    Personally I want the game screen as uncluttered as possible, so I want to be able to close the chat screen when I don't need to use it. On that basis I don't find clicking the bubble to open and close the chat window too onerous.

    Similarly I don't ever use ShotPal and PutterPal so I would prefer not to have buttons like that taking up real estate on my screen.

    That's just my perpective though, and I'm sure there are thousands of others.

    Ditto to above post, we dont need more crap on the screen. Chat is fine where it is, don't need to see the kids yellin cheater every game, I ignore most chats.

      I guess it is a matter of luck . For 5 years on WGT PC . I had only the best chat interactions through 1000's of rounds . I can only remember a couple of idiots .

      On the other hand . For the first few years of playing mobile . Before PCEA . I only had trouble getting players to respond . It was so very frustrating .

      Now it is much better on PCEA . Every round I can converse with the player or players .

      Although I cannot disagree that it would add clutter to the screen . I would still be in favor of the chat being visible .

      For me . Interaction is still a big part of my having a GR8 WGT experience . Chatting during a game . Makes it a full game for me .

    I find chat to be perfectly accessible as it is. It's basically the same in PCEA as in flash in that you can clearly see when someone has added a chat message without it needing to be open the whole time. It's no harder to open or close it in either version being just one click, the only real difference being that in PCEA it covers the whole damned screen when it's open.
