The suggestion that one never clicks CANCEL is a good one . But there is an error message that won't RETRY . And you must click CANCEL . It won't cancel you .
And yet again you don't know wtf you are talking about. I've said it 30 times. Plus.
Hard close the app and restart it. Stop posting your clueless BS.
EDIT : This was a common and recommended solution in the past . Especially in the first say 6 years of Flash . If you found yourself spinning and spinning . A restart would actually reboot you , restart the game client , and allow you to resume .
This method may still be safe for a single player . Reconnecting intentionally and resuming the game . But not if it ends the match and reboots . You will not return to the game in this new platform .
And is also risky to your opponent if their
Before the tee . Is taking a few more seconds than you like . It is recommended that you be patient . Wait another 5 to 10 seconds for him to load . The tee will load up and there will be no more delays . The game will play as perfectly as it can .
Hey buddy I'm getting tired of your bullying , You need to stop . Everything I am posting is verifiable and proven facts .
You are the one posting harmful info .
Your program likely runs better than average . If you restart for every little lag or hiccup . You may be causing the other player more grief .
This will not help your opponent . It will restart his LOADING RENDERING OBJECTS . Which will take longer on each reconnect .
And or end the game . With one of you receiving an unwarranted forfeit . Most likely your opponent . Which you may quickly move on from . Taking the easy forfeit . Not giving it another thought .
Meanwhile the opponent still is viewing all the screens telling him that You are the winner . And finally the scorecard verifying that the opponent was robbed . ( in those early forfeits , many times a score card is not produced . The last screen you will see is the WINNING screen with him getting all the coins . )
You need to think about that . Is that really the way you want to get a win ?
Or is taking a few more seconds at the beginning . To allow them a little more time to load .
To then play a good coin match . A coin match that is important to coin players . Not because of the statistics or lowering ones average . Or even the win or loss . But because they are fun , fast paced highly competitive in a sporting way .
There is a winner . Who wins a few coins . Which in the end doesn't even matter . It was the excitement of completing the very competitive match with any other tier . Having the benefit of a degree of parity with the random green speeds . And in some rooms the tiered tees .
I have mega more experience with these specific glitches and errors than you . I have over 1500 screen shots of these scenarios . I have studied them . And I am an expert .
How much have you paid attention to them . Probably not much . You haven't seen them . They don't effect you . You wouldn't have a need to concern yourself with them .
I am serious please restrain yourself from anymore comments on these subjects you know nothing about .
You may never believe me or give me credit for anything . That is your choice . So you can also choose to ignore me . If you aren't willing to help me with my crusade to fix and eliminate these glitches and errors . Then stay out of it please .
Thank you .
EDIT : I have gone into GR8 length and details about dozens of these problems . With Member Services .
I could do that here . And I have in some threads . But I'm not going to waste my time explaining to you . One who has a good running system . One who rarely sees these errors and glitches . One who it doesn't effect .
Along with this error that I posted earlier . There are many more that do not respond to the RETRY button . The error will keep returning until you click the CANCEL button .
In these particular instances . It is recommended and necessary to use the CANCEL feature .
Even the OP states it
While playing a 3-hole Showdown round, my
opponent forfeited. The game put up an error message; clicking "retry"
did nothing so I clicked "cancel". The game showed me as loading, and
then without ever giving me a shot clock, said my time had expired.
I do not think what happened after he clicked CANCEL was a result of clicking CANCEL . More likely it was the player that forfeited that caused the corruption of the rest of the round .
The forfeiters actions probably caused the system to work faster to exit the forfeiter .
Then initiating a false message like this , telling you you didn't return in time . Giving you a forfeit .
Or this one that is vague . In these the forfeit could go either way :
Which is more BS . When you didn't go anywhere . You just sat there and watched all of this transpire. Then get blamed for it . And be given a false forfeit .
The OP mentioned that as well .
said my time had expired.
These have all been submitted to member services . With me getting responses saying the program is not supposed to react this way . And are working very hard to fix it .
These are just the tip of the iceberg . There are many more glitches and errors that are not doing what they are programmed to do . Assigning false reports and forfeits .
This is real and is happening . If you don't want to believe it or like it . Then just go on to the next thread . And do not spend another minute trying to discredit me .
The fact is . They are aware of it . They are working
very hard on it . It has improved over the last month .
They have also made it so if your opponent forfeits . You can continue solo to the end of the round .
Sometimes no matter what you do . These error/glitches take you out . Then you get the bogeys .
But if your opponent forfeits . Try to stay and continue solo .
This new fix only occurs in the Showdowns .
Thank you .
