Fix needed ASAP, just tried 2 holes and hit the ball all over the shop and at 90%. Also tried the right stick dreadful, please HB give us our left stick back and fast, we don't want wait till next update like we have just done for the seasons fix :(

This must be a simple fix for you guy's? you have pushed out something that's useless to us left stick golfers please repair as soon as.

Hoping for an early fix, and thinking of calling in The Mall on way home from work tomorrow to pick up Rory from EA, I need my golf fix fast, useless game for me as it is :(. Why alway's Xbox updates and download content Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Not a threat to "go to Rory", but I was so looking forward to the bug fixes that the July update was promised to bring.  I've waited weeks for these fixes, and the last thing I expected was an update that completely breaks the game for lefties.  I definitely wasted my money buying the Seasons update, as it's still broken even after this update, and now the game's unplayable.

So, yes, I've been playing RMPGA today instead, using my wifes EA Access account.

No intention of going to Rory.  This is the best golf game I've ever played, and I know that HB will fix this issue.  I just hope it's before Sunday.  I've still got one round left in my Euro Tourney on TGCT.  Can't play like this...I'll shoot a +124!  :o ;)

We've fixed it immediately and have pushed it back to Microsoft.  It's a bug that has come up due to a last minute change and unfortunately our QA team and Microsoft didn't find it.  Sadly consoles do not push things through same day.  We are hoping for next week as the consoles never give smaller studios top priority.

The right stick is the normal swing and has not changed with the update last night.  If you want to try it make sure you change your swing stick in the settings.  I have always been a left stick swing.  I have played 3 rounds now with the right stick and have actually played very well.  I am getting alot of 100% but there are a few swings that are less mainly because I am not as comfortable with the right stick and am not trusting my swing full bore yet. 

Am I expecting everyone to easily switch over?  No, just saying it can be done in the interim while the fix gets processed by MS.  I know it's a big pain in the arse but please hang in there.  We are doing everything we can to get it fixed up asap.

Thanks,
Keith

Don't your QA Team have testing scripts that they follow, or does that testing script not include testing the main player interface?

Yes, they have scripts that they follow.

Nice reply Keith.


Yes it's is playable with the right stick, I've played left stick since twin stick controllers came out.
I decided to try and finish off my web.com tourney today I wasn't in a front position so I thought there's nothing spoiling.  3 rd round was a bit ropey I missed a couple of fairways missed a few putts but only dropped 3 shots.
4th round was a lot better made a lot of putts most of them for pars but still managed a 7 under 65
Overall I felt the swing was better and the putting felt more solid but I won't know for sure until I get my left stick back.
I hope it doesn't take too long.

It's definately NOT playable if you're left-handed.  I've tried, and I kept knocking the left stick with the side of my hand and messing up loft and aim.

BUT, I've finally found my own solution.  Got my CronusMax out, wrote a script to reverse the up/down direction of the left stick, and fixed.
Code: [Select]
//|-------------------------------|
// Tue Jul 14 2015 17:32:05
// Script generated by GPC BLOCKLY
//|-------------------------------|

main {
//    if(get_val(XB1_LX)) {
//       set_val(XB1_LX, 0);
//    }
    if(get_val(XB1_LY)) {
        set_val(XB1_LY, (get_val(XB1_LY)) * -1);
    }
}


Of course, the other bugs are still there (seasons, tours, handicap=0, etc).

How are you swinging?  Use your right hand with the right thumb stick that way you aren't reaching over the entire controller.  The only way to change loft is to pull the trigger, that should have no effect whether you are using your left or right hand.

I can't use my right-hand, as I've already stated, I'm left-handed.  Anyway, using my CronusMax I'm back up and working okay.

I know you are left handed.  I am right handed but use the left stick with my left hand.  No luck trying right hand on the right stick?

Tried that, but it feels so odd, I'm a bit too old to be learning to do things right-handed.  Not to worry, I'm using my CronusMax to reverse the left stick, just means I'm limited to using a wired controller.  Of course, I'll probably be accused of cheating using a CronusMax.

 I'm more interested in when the other bugs - seasons, tours, handicap=0 - are scheduled to be fixed.
