    No what WGT gifted for all this runaround was temporary Premier membership for 30 days, some ball effects, and a few of the Attribute boxes for clothing upgrades etc.

      Was it an email ? Or a link ? Or a joke ?

    Was in WGT News back at end of Nov/early Dec

      I wonder if it is still active with the perks ?

      If I delete my launcher and load that one ?

      Who Knows ?

    P.S. Yes it worked . I now have the Premier for a month , etc .

      I don't think that is it . VEM is used widespread . I am sure it is very adaptable .

    From reading the available patent information it seems like the VEM system are assigned to the various assets and elements of the game and that it works with almost everything in it, like everything... It's really pretty impressive. 

    So say having the (new) ability to move the character back and forth a certain distance, that would have to be assigned some sort of value or condition within VEM, moving forward is going to impart more loft and ball height so that, missing the ding would give you an unfavorable shot result, depending on wind and ball and club used... It all works together, seemingly anyway. 

    That's what I mean by 'breaking VEM' not imploding it completely, but if something is not under control of VEM then there's no influence on conditions. I mean that's sort of how I see it all working anyway, I could be completely wrong. lol 

    Honestly, I think it would have been way way easier to simply incorporate physics engines, tweak and let them do their thing. Not that would have worked with the revenue modelling, which is taken into consideration as well. 

    The entire way this game was brought to market should be a course in MBA programs...

      So incorporating new engines . Although maybe not under VEM control . Would they not have variable and adjustable characteristics or motions , or features .

      You think these techs just aren't risk takers ? Not pushers of the future envelope ?

      Maybe sceered . Or just not in the budget . Or not allowed to play outside VEM .

    Physics engines would not be controlled by the VEM, they're not assets in game, but are like VEM in that they influence the game environment.. God having VEM and Physics engines at the same time? 

    Holy crap... LOL!!!! 

    Assigning new movements to characters would be though as that's an in game action affecting the character so that's pretty simple to write in I imagine, I mean I'd think it would be. 

    It would be funny if VEM didn't even exist, that those patents are just there, but never worked properly and it's a massive exercise in suggestive game play psychology and that all the suck is on us. 

    lmao....  > <

      Update .

      Today the new install loaded much faster . Under 2 minutes . But that is all that was good .

      For the first time . My meter was sporadic at best . Shaky , slowing and speeding up , flashed a couple of times .

      The chat screen kept pausing the game . 2 times in 2 games . I couldn't get back to take my shot before the shot clock ran out and gave me a forfeit in both . ( coin games ) .

      These are different issues than I have had in the several installs I have had in the last year .

      Does anyone else with the

    Bundle for Flash Players

      have any issues like I describe ? With their install ?

    Absolutely.  The new and "deproved" version sucks ass!

     

     

    Same here, I'm pretty much done with this garbage. Everything looks nice but the game play is nothing like the old version. Putting doesnt track right. Wind doesn't react the same greens speeds are not the same. % the ball is buried doesn't reflect the old values the flash version had. Getting a 9 hole game with multiple people is nearly impossible in less than 10 mins. I can go on but im getting more and more frustrated every time I play it and Im pretty much ready to stop playing.  

     

    Great job WGT you completely ruined what was once the best multiplayer golf game online.

    Exactly my sentiments, I've been playing since 2009, but I'm done.This game sucks with the new format.
