This game is kind of fun.    I have to go to work but I will probably get hooked on it again when I get home.   They change the course to a new 9 holes every day.

Not real hot about being force fed an unknown .exe file!

That's how bad stuff happens.

Is this OK to install?

Yeah, I don't like installing crap like that either but it in this case it's relatively harmless. I checked it out. It's just another thing that has to be installed. It's a bit like installing Flashplayer apparently.

I'd be more concerned with the BS Unity might be pulling with their required plug-in.  The future is WebGL.  No more proprietary 3rd party plug-ins to run cool graphics.  I saw some amazing demos of its use at the Mozilla Summit last month. </geek>

See, that's what we need-- summits. We need to have a meeting of all the disc golfers in town and call the meeting a summit. People should know we mean business after that.

Update:
You can only earn points once a day, points are needed to buy new and better discs.
Use the shot preview else you find your self in the water!
Playing the 'easy' version is just plain lame!

Can't mouse aim and only manage 55m max throw. Anyone else have those problems? And yeah, I'm using the driver.

This game is a lot of fun. Best PC game available right now hands down.

If I have learned anything from this game, it is that I need start playing more with my bag on.

I pretty much get 1000+ every time I play now.   Yea.  I'm that cool.  I'm 1 achievement away from buying new clothes too.   Funny thing is I just kept starting the career over and I'm only on day 3 :) 

BTW Dave.  There are 365 courses on the game and you start at #1 every time no matter what day you start on.  So to signify a course you have to say day 13 or whatever to match up how you do.  They don't manual change the course on a day to day basis.   Just figured that out.

I suck, but just wanted to point out that every time I play the game, when I finish and attempt to close the browser tab it crashes Firefox
Title: Re: New PC Disc Golf Game. Addicting.
Post by: dickthediscparker on August 11, 2010, 12:21:36 PM
It has crashed on me a few times as well.  Just randomly.

Anyone else having trouble viewing the game? I downloaded the Unity player and have tried IE, Firefox, and Chrome. The game loads fine but all the menus are blank white boxes. Redownloaded Unity also but still getting white boxes. Can't play the game because I can't see where to click :(

The game loads about 40% of the time.

First few times playing this on normal, I didn't realize you could control the disc after the flight.  Only played hard once, but scored an ace on the first throw.

Shot 1987 today.

I really hate admitting it but I have to get my 9 holes in every morning before work.   :)  My best score is 2600+ .   I know I'm a loser. 

I do have some lag issues from time to time but honestly it plays fine most the time.   I also don't look at porn anymore so my computer runs pretty fast :)
Title: Re: New PC Disc Golf Game. Addicting.
Post by: will on August 25, 2010, 12:10:14 PM
the best i've done is 1600 or so but i pretty much average 1300 now.  2600 is tough.

i also start my morning before work with a round.  i am lame

If you land directly beneath a boost and its not too high off the ground, when you stand up to throw you are launched skyward  ;D

Its pretty cool but it does crash my browser.

I threw a shot once that skiped off a mountain top and continued flying towards the target.  But it never came down, just went higher & higher.  Was like a 1500m out and the island was a little more than a spec in the distance and was still flying away into the ocean.
