    I am asking for a couple of additions to the game that were standard on the old Flash version & a couple of SIMPLE tweaks that your engineers could change easily... I think MOST will agree. 

    #1) Please add the YARDAGE/FEET to the Overview Map on the right of the playing screen. This helps speed the game up tremendously when people can see their yardage or putt length & do part of their math before it's even their turn. 

    #2 Please make all the Camera Views accessible at all times whether it's our turn or not. It used to be this way. 

     


    And these are easy, COMMON SENSE Fixes:


    #3) Please reserve the HEARTBEAT for actual great shots of at least ONE (1) yard or closer. I would vote for within a foot.  These 3 yard heartbeat shots are not always that great.

    #4) Please explain to the engineers that the phrase "Never up, Never in" should only be said when you come up SHORT on a putt. I have rolled it way past the hole & I get this statement that makes no sense to people who play.  The whole meaning is that a short putt can NEVER go in 100% of the time. This is why you try to go a foot or two past the hole on putting speed. 

    Please & Thank You!  This is my Christmas Wish List! That gives you 6 months...?

    I'll add one: Let us lock the position of the shot tracer. I have to move it out of my face on every single shot.

    Maybe move your screen back from your face so its not so close.

      The development team is finding it very difficult to match , duplicate , or even come close to what we had in Flash . This platform is very limited . It is not SIMPLE .

      Not a priority . No one uses this .

      If they could , they would .

      Again , nobody cares . We are hoping they concentrate on game play issues . I don't know anyone that has their sound on . Except playing some Stevie Ray Vaughn .

      Yes , we know . Thanks for reclarifying it . Now turn the music back on .

      I don't mean to take this lightly . Well maybe I do . But there are dozens of critical game issues that need their attention if this conversion from Flash to the PCEA platform is going to work well enough for WGT to remain valid going forward .

    Pdb1:

    The first two items are not SIMPLE but would be nice. I used the yardage all the time on the overview map. It would be nice to have it again. The camera angles would be nice but not essential. 
    As far as the last two items, they should be extremely SIMPLE for a computer programmer to fix. 

    -All you have to do is make sure that the 'SHORT' phrase is ONLY for putts that come up short, not long. Seems like a simple IF THIS, THEN THAT command. Even I know that. 

    -As far as the heartbeat, it is RIDICULOUS to have it for 10 ft. shots. PERIOD. Once again, a simple algorithm of 1 or 2 ft. or closer ONLY gets a heartbeat.

    I play with the sound on exclusively. If you don't, that's on you but I use the audio portion of the game & don't apprectiate your belittling attitude of something I, as a paying customer find important in my game play.
    Are you a spokesperson for WGT? Because you are horrible if you are... PLEASE WGT, look into these fixes as I & I'm sure many others find them IMPORTANT.

    I think this is tier-dependent. At lower tiers, 10 ft makes a lot of sense and gives people a sense of both accomplishment and encouragement. It may not matter to you as a Tour Legend but I suspect you liked it as an Amateur or even a Pro.

      Are you referring to using the mouse to hover over ( mouse over ) or ( cursor over ) the balls on the mini map ? To show the yardage as it used to ?However it was done
      If so . I absolutely agree . I have mentioned it in a couple threads .

      Being different platforms . Flash vs Mobile/PCEA . At this point . Almost 10 years into the development of Mobile . And a solid 2 years into PCEA . It is now painfully obvious that there are going to be many specific , particular technically advanced functions and features . That are not going to happen in this new PCEA platform .

      If you hadn't noticed . PCEA has already slightly surpassed its base program Mobile . Suggesting that Mobile has maxed out . What isn't there now . Will likely never be .
     
      With any luck . There is a little more they can squeeze out of the PCEA program .

      Does the term Back Peddle seem to fit here ?

      Too bad . So sad .
     
      As far as heartbeats and comments . I plead ignorance . Had no idea it was good or bad .

    As someone who has been playing less than 7 months it’s always nice to see the heartbeat. Makes me realize I did something right in terms of club selection, amount of spin, length of backswing, etc. (or I just got lucky).

    YES!!!

    The shot tracer is really very useful, but PLEASE don't place it right in the middle of the screen so we can't see anything else for EVERY shot. It is very annoying to have to move it every single shot, often multiple times should you change camera view.
