Rival and ghost ?
« on: July 17, 2017, 06:28:54 PM »
What is the difference between to choose Rival and Ghost?    Ghost is a CPU golf player (AI) ?  and Rival is a Human player ?

Thanks

A ghost is a real person also, they have just played the course before you and it was recorded. For instance if you see my name as a ghost, and choose to play against me, your really playing me shot for shot.

If you do pick a ghost to play before the round starts you can choose turn order, then you can watch the other person hit the ball also.

Rivals - Other players currently playing live on the course - unless you start at the same time you'll just see their ball off in the distance as they play different holes than you.

Ghosts - previously recorded rounds

let me know if this works for you the past 3 days all my ghost opponents when turn order is applied disappear?

I've been trying to figure out what the point of a Live Rival is exactly?

Chances are if they're already playing they are multiple holes ahead of you so what's the point of knowing that they are live versus just a ghost?

It is working for me, I have never had it not work. I dont use the feature every round, but when I have it works. I am playing a round as I post, and things are fine.

have not tried today but will a bit later.

How do you turn on turn order before the round begins, especially if you set up round from your messages?

I just pick a ghost and before I tee off I hit the esc key, check the box that says turn order then we are off to the races.

If the bastage is beating me, I can uncheck the turn order box so I dont have to look at his mug anymore.
