    My older Maxthon Browser  has built in flash, I have deleted the update for the browser and the Flash Player. Neither one has ever updated although I get nasty messages.

    Don can i ask what exact version of maxthon are you running? I never had good luck with Max(Terrible meter) But maybe I can give it another Go?

    Like it or not, Flash is going away and Adobe itself is killing it.  Let's hope that there's time to keep improving the PCEA version before it goes dark at the end of the year.  

    Wrong!! Adobe is going by the waste side this is true but they already sold their Flash program ....And many things outside of WGT still rely on flash it will be out there and available for use even if its "Unsupported" use  AFTER Dec 2020...

     Steam probably isn't the best vehicle,

      It could be . With a program that offers the highest features . Above and superior to current choices

    IE; audio game commentary and multiple player lobby capabilty . Course creators ( design and build your own ). Increase of player options and set up and game play variables . Many more options that advanced Game creators already have the capabiiies and more . Just for starters .

      The tecnology to offer an experience . Miles above what they offer now . Is already available .

      We want that . We know we should be able to get it . We want WGT to create it .

      STEAM would be the perfect platform for that .

      PCEA barely raises an eyebrow . To golf lovers looking for ultimately high end experiences .

      i'm already late for work , but when I get home . I will share some video examples of gameplay and features above and beyond anything we currently have any idea of . then you tell me if it doesn't make you say . Wow why can't we do that ?

    Personally I think this all ends up being steam only. They can't keep the link on this page forever. 

    They won't get new personal. You want new members, and steam is they way to do it.

    Maxthon 4.4.8.1000.

    I got it before the talk of getting rid of flash

    I was focused more on the original question of marketing than technological capabilities. Adding features would help retain existing users, but doesn't necessarily draw people to the game who don't know about it.  I was surprised at the number of new Steam players listed earlier in the thread.  It's obvious people aren't finding it on their own easily.

    I'm relatively new here but the one thing that I can see dulling my enthusiasm for the game now is a lack of new courses.  You'd think WGT could make some money selling course packs, starting with upgrading the CTTH courses to full play.  A course creator would be a great upgrade.

      Yes . I know . You're right . But you gotta admit . It looks pretty fun .

      What about a compromise . Somewhere in between What we have now . And what they have .

      TigerWoods versions weren't as expensive as WGT .

      Some kind of upgrade of a TigerWoods type game . I played them on PC for 5 years before WGT . Played a couple console versions at friends houses . They were only a little better .

    _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-

      I would like WGT to remain or become more relevant . Wouldn't you ?

      With level of involvement that many hard core WGTers have become accustomed to and maintained for year or years . Financially I'm talking . Most of us not good enough or not having the patience to play " FREE " here . Basically have become " all in " . Mostly with a good conscience (sp)? Means that a good many of us ARE willing to pay certain concessions for a better experience . Some even go out of their way to put out for others . To help some not able to upgrade themselves .

      So why don't we re examine our stance on " I'm not paying for that " . When in truth alot of us have been anyway all along .

      I'm sure there would be some sort of controlled package . Not like here . Where they get you every which way and then some .

      Something better may have fees . But in the end . I don't think they could be as much or more than we already potentially put out voluntarily .

      Just some thoughts . Only my opinions . Observing these things . As I was a big spender here for a good 5 years . I was not alone . By a long shot .

    &$&$&$&$&$&$&$&

      Which brings me back to the easy way out . That WGT has taken to just expand the Mobile platform for the purpose of the " Cross Play " result . BLAH . How's that working out . Everyone enjoying their cross play ? So many biotched about it for years . And that's who they listened to . Big efen whoop .

      WGT could research developers and techs that have worked for these other game providers . They could hire some . betwixt them all . Could no doubt come up with an awesome platform/program . That would blow us away . And be cost efficient as well . Because that would be a target goal as well .

      That is what I would like to encourage . Because otherwise . I'm thinking WGT may become irrelevant .

      No one wants that . Right ?

      Yes . I never tried it . Those clips are old . But they were new when I saved them . I've never had a machine that could play something like that .
