    Ok, i'm over the disappointment with graphics and addicted to classic EG golf ;)

    Question - where are the ranking and leader boards for the tournaments? I can see the main leader board but that's only for the daily tournament i believe. What about all the live stuff? There must be a reason for me to play them, climbing leader boards, trophies, whatever - I need something or knowing myself, I won't play them!
    Which tournaments do you mean? You mean the lobby ones?

    I don't think you can actually see those leaderboards unless you're actually participating. Each of those tournaments is essentially a room.

    Having said that, if you mean the grades, I don't think that's been implemented yet as every single game is a GF round (grade free).

    I got a few questions if anyone can be arsed answering

    Is the only way to see a birds eye view with the select button? I find that hard to press

    How do you put spin on the ball?

    What do the O and triangle shots do? I unlocked these yesterday but no explanation....

    Thanks

    I don't think so, but try using the back panel for measuring your distances if that's what you need. I'll try and check later.

    How do you put spin on the ball?
    Hold down the desired direction of the spin on the d-pad while setting power and impact (for example, to get backspin, hold down on the d-pad). Super spins can be executed by holding the opposite direction when setting power and then holding the spin you want when setting impact. You need perfect impact to execute it.

    What do the O and triangle shots do? I unlocked these yesterday but no explanation...
    They're fine tuning shots in case you think you've over-or under powered the shot before you set impact. Press triangle to increase the power of your shot slightly and press O to decrease the power of your shot slightly.

    Boo, custom games not ready yet. That's going to restrict things a little. Game on Tuesday? Will have to jump into the scheduled tournaments to play multiplayer so will announce the rounds 24 hours in advance for pre-booking.
    I'd be up for that, off Tue/Wed.

    Started it this morning, few practice shots, and fired into the opening tourney. 27yd chip-in eagle on the first hole.

    Still got it.

    I like the game but cant help feeling im playing the exact same game as EG2, already bored of the tedium of going through all the beginner stuff yet again. If you've never played EG before it would be amazing but for veterans just feel like a bit of a rip off. Bought it mainly for the online which I haven't tried yet, hoping to have some good tournaments.

    I seem to be really shit at this one, I dont know if the swing moves slightly faster, and the courses at the beginning seem trickier, dont recall sloping greens and water hazards on the beginner levels of EG2

    You already know the answer...... ;)

    -8 on my first round, 2 eagles, 2 chip-ins.
    -3 on the second round, pars and bunkers galore. Back to normal then.

    EG on the PS2 had water hazards on the first course. I remember because I got my first ever albatross by skipping on the water and rolling into the flag for the flukiest shot ever :)

    Online is decent but I'm hoping the ability to make custom games will be patched in soon as it's quite annoying having to walk into a booking tournament just to play with friends...

    Doesn't party chat work with this? I did a game of WipeOut yesterday through party chat. Just one person goes into a game and then the others can click on this through the party mode. Or can you not set a private game up at all at the moment? Sorry didn't really play EG much in multiplayer on PS3 as the patches kept putting me off every time i went into online with it.

    You can't set a private game at all. The only option available in the lobby is to look at the tournament list and select one to book. The disadvantage of this is that we're set to strict times as to when we can play instead of being able to jump in right away.

    Tournaments start on the hour, quarter past, half past and quarter to the hour.

    The daily tournaments are good fun though. Well worth playing. You play up to 3 tournaments and your scores are uploaded at the end. You then go on a leaderboard and score points based on performance after midnight (Japan time).

    I agree with this some what but it's still bloody good fun - it's EG Golf after all ;)

    Its more or less a slightly different unlock system and updated graphics, otherwise it's the same. They could have at least put in a nice touch screen interface, it's a Vita only game ffs. It's blatantly the old UI. I'd have also appreciated native res graphics, it's probably the worst looking game on the console.

    Having said all that, I still really enjoy it and have no regrets buying - I'm sure i'll get a hundred hours or more fun.

    I know. The other gauges always have the character animating while you're trying to watch for the impact point. Really distracting.

    I'm actually enjoying reading all the LiveArea updates from all of you :). Great to see how everyone is doing!

    um... I had an account on my VITA which I started to play EG on. I then deleted that account and created another (I had my reasons)

    now anytime I start EG it says "you cannot earn trophies, do you still want to play etc." is there any way to correct this?

    Straight bar across the bottom. Much easier to track/adjust/get into a rhythm, and slightly more forgiving on impact.

    Ed: Just ranked 66th on today's third tourney. Nevermind that there's only 400 entries for now. I'm chuffed !

    Oh, and found this handy guide to Crowns. Hidden in a spoiler about halfway down.

    Hahaha, why does this not surprise me? :p

    Because save data is contained within the "game data" for Vita games, you will have to delete the EG "bubble" and then restart, I believe.

    If by "make a new account" you mean you already deleted everything on the memory card and restored the Vita, did you de-authorize the first account before you went through that process?

    Hey does anyone know how to find the criteria for obtaining crowns? I've got one which was random to win with three bogeys.

    Is it just me or are the courses much harder. Even the 3rd course has some very tricky tee shots.... I remember the last game being a lot easier to begin with.

    Yeah, the greens seem a bit steeper to me.

    I find the green very hard. Most early level golf games greens are flat. It's nice in many ways as golf games are normally too easy
  • Deleted user 26 February 2012 21:15:07
    yeah... I de-authorised

    (I had to delete my account cos I only just remembered when I sold my PS3 I gave the person the login details to my PSN account so that they'd have my games and I could get a better price... was worried that if I continued to use that account on my VITA they'd have access to my funds on their PS3.)

    what does the back panel do on this btw? I prod at it and it seems to do nowt

    Agreed, I like it being harder - just glad people agree with me. ;)

    Try pinching your golfer before you tee off, or wobbling the trees in the background!

    Trophies thing sounds messed up, if you deauthorized, formatted the memory card and started again, I can't see why it would think that you were carrying on a save on a different account.

    Good game with HiddenAway where he wiped the floor with a group of 16 of us.

    I came in 8th proving I need a little more practice, was nice to play with another EGr though.

    Anyone up for a game circa 9pm tomorrow? I can post the room and lobby on here?

    Goat is hungry.....
