CsS (The Swiss Course) is the most different of the PGA Euro courses on offer in this game, and I can see why it's a popular choice.

To compliment it you might want to pick a standard flat green, 18 hole, trad power course like Wentworth, which is actually a really nice play, and so is Valderrama. Arden gets a bit dull.

For anyone sad enough to want to enjoy further reading around the subject, have a look at the 1996 MS-DOS version of this game, which is quite different in some ways, but a nice play and really set the standard for modern golfing sims. Personally I prefer this PGA AGA Euro game, but I'm biased.

^ Lifeschool chose Spain - guess that's Valderrama.

I'm going to try the OCS/ECS version with cycle-exact A500 emulation and the AGA version with cycle-exact A1200-emulation. If there are no gameplay and content differences we'll allow both versions.

No gameplay and content difference between OCS and AGA versions. The ball moves very slowly when putting in both versions but I guess that's a feature.

So you'll be allowed to play either version.

Tested the driving range.
From the start of the swing to the display of the message, 26 seconds (281yds).
Tested with a quickstart A500 config (512K+512K).
Seems OK for me.

How slow is it on your side ?

I've played both versions also and as far as I could see there is little or no playing advantage regardless of which is version you use....now the CD32 version, that's a whole different ball game!

Outside the green it's fine, only when putting (in both versions).

With my config, I thought the speed was good while putting* as well .
But it changes from the speed of SofB's enemies for sure

*('to putt' and not 'to put')

Yes, the next three weeks will be relaxing.

Next time I'll write putt-ing...

I've never played it, I was trying to whip up some interest. Didn't we discuss a CD32 round during the last winter break?

But one things is for sure, there's no mouse...

Won't make a gameplay difference which button you have to press to time your strikes but let's just stick with the standard AGA release.

No change here because capehorn didn't vote. PGA European Tour it is.
