Will the standard game be Protee compatable, or will it be a special edition at a higher cost?

Yes, existing ProTee 2.0 owners will be able to add TGC at a special price.  Future ProTee system sales will have TGC included.  System prices will be updated to reflect TGC cost.

I think he meant the opposite.

I'm thinking the standard TGC game ($35) will not be the simulator compatible version, correct?  It will be higher priced.

That's correct.  The standard game will not work.

Yep.  That's exactly what I meant.  Does anyone know if the difference in versions will be marginal or significant?

There shouldn't be any differences in terms of features.   Hopefully we get the same updates the same time PC and consoles get updates.  How the  ball looks or behaves on the sim version will obviously be different because shots will be launched using ball data from ProTee.  i.e. ball speed, launch angle, backspin, spin axis, etc..

For example, a flop or pitch shot with a lot of spin could cause the ball to spin back down the green from it's landing mark.  Where as the same shot with very little spin will cause the ball to roll out.

No problem.  The sim version will cost more for sure but it will be the only version that matters for current ProTee 2.0 software owners.  And I have a feeling they will not even think twice about the price. 

For new folks, it might be included with hardware or Protee software purchases.  Nothing has been determined yet so it's all speculation at this point.

At the moment, only 2 devices are supported.  GC2 owners with ProTee 2.0 will be able to add TGC and of course, ProTee 2.0 simulator owners.

Other devices "might be" in the works but nothing official yet.  They might get done or they might not so I can't say whether they'll need ProTee 2.0 or not.

Zmax, I don't understand why you didn't tell me that earlier. If it costs $2k for protee 2.0 software and that is required to play TGC then this whole golf simulator idea is ridiculous. WHo can afford $2000 for a piece of software that does nothing but act as a bridge between the TGC game and the Skytrak LM?

pastuch,  the SkyTrak people have yet to announce what simulation software it will come with, if any at all.  It might or might not even work with ProTee or TGC.  It's all speculation and hopes at the moment. 

The ProTee system comes with the software ProTee 2.0, which by the way does a lot more than nothing.  It has 100 courses and online play.  The $2000 price was the cost for GC2($6500) owners to add ProTee 2.0.  Just to give you an idea about the golf simulator industry, Trugolf's e6 software sells for around $4-5K I believe.  Foresight's FR1(range, 1 course, fitting software) sells for $2300.  If you want all the courses, it will cost you $10K.  Now that's ridiculous.

Wow, I had no idea. No wonder so few people have a golf sim.
