Stuck on hole 2

Post by f1partisan » Mon May 01, 2017 11:38 am

Playing hole 2 got the old menu glitch. ( if i hit x while ball is in air I have to restart and get penalty stroke.)
this time the ball is in lateral hazard and i cannot drop to continue or do anything at all!
I guess the only fix is to wait for next week unless anyone has idea?
this kind of interface issue should not be in a paid game!

OK so I lost the 18 Hole by 2 strokes and that is how many BS penalty strokes I had. So now my goal is to win by so many strokes and so often that I will be banned from game for being too good.

Good to see that positive frame of mind.

My guess is that the game simply cannot swallow those awesome "Bend it like Beckham" curved shots you produce.

Danny,

Because you hit into water, if the game was working correctly in regard to giving you the drop option, you would have been given a penalty stroke. That is all we are doing when the Penalty Stroke gets applied - sticking to the rules of golf.

The drop is of course not where you would want, being back where you struck the errant shot from, but it is a legal drop and the only one we can provide.

I'm sure you will understand and appreciate that if we did not not use penalty strokes for shots which are 'dumped' before clicking through the post-shot screen, those that feel they can get away with constantly retaking shots until they have a major advantage can (and have) abused this and used it to gain an unfair score against honest players.

Danny,

No fix we can put in place, and I totally understand your frustration. We feel the same too, and that far too many long-standing bugs are not being addressed at all. We can only work our way around things.


Mike
