Turns out GameFace is broken in the version I have anyways... how do I roll back a patch?  Is that possible?

Run the installation dics again;
Recovery disc then game discs 1-3
If your goal is to get online, then do not run the all access pass patch disc.

Are you still planning on upgrading to a better computer? If so, you should probably do that before going online too.

I upgraded to 1.5GB of RAM and used a solid state drive and it's running really smooth and boots so fast.

I'll go back through and leave all access pass off.

Thank you!

I ended up leaving the beige case computer that was in there.  1.7GHZ - I upped it to 1.5GB RAM and took the ticking time bomb mechanical drive out and swapped to solid state media.

Hey All,
I have picked up a couple of Golden Tee Fore Cabs and will do the conversion as Tom did in his videos.  Where can I get the side art, top Marquee, and the Center info?
I will post pics later today of the cabs before the conversion.

PGA Tour Golf by Global VR & EA Sports Owners Thread Increase resolution

Increase resolution in the game?
I have noticed in a few Youtubers that their screen looks larger than 800x600 and the corner info is smaller.  I have one cabinet hooked up to a 27" screen that I would like to try this on. How did they do this?  I will double-check the FB group, but so far I have not found the info.  I did see some talk in this forum but not a 'How to".

So after 67 pages of discussion what does everyone feel is the best approach for PGA golf.
1. All Access pass
2. Install Tiger PGA 200x?
3. Team challange online
4. Keep challange with skins and change the players?

Pros and cons for each but what is everyone's preference?

Awesome to see some guys still keeping the PGA arcades alive. I miss this game.

I have been looking for one and found a championship edition.  It seems to be in working condition, has the beige tower still running the original Championship edition and has the disks.

Am I able to upgrade to Team Challenge or would I be better off trying to find a Team Challenge cabinet.

Am I able to upgrade to Team Challenge or would I be better off trying to find a Team Challenge cabinet.

I'm currently upgrading to Team Challenge with the beige PC. I upgraded RAM to 1.5gb, new processor with 2.8ghz, GeForce 7900GS, and swapped in an SSD.

I am still waiting on a couple things, but I'm like $60 all in on beefing this PC to the max for Team Challenge. Should run butter smooth in the end. Probably overkill on my part, but with things so cheap why not.

Youíll find hole 7 at TPC sawgrass and the final hole of Pasatiempo still stutter with the beige DFI even after youíve maxed out itís specs. Other than that, itís pretty good.

You can upgrade to team challenge but that original computer wonít run it very well. Youíll notice lots of lag in gameplay. You can either upgrade the specs in that computer or you can replace the computer with something better.

Post some pics of the cabinet youíve found.

I am picking it up tomorrow, any tips on transporting it?

I have a trailer I am going to use and planning on transporting it up right but I've got a good 80 miles to get it home

Yeah, just ended up taking the tower out shrink wrapping some moving blankets to it and straping it into a uhaul trailer upright. Really surprised how clean it was relatively no dust in the tower.  Guy I got it from said it was in game room at an office building then his house. I don't think it's been played all that much.

Played a bunch of rounds no issues so far. But the track ball could probably use some lube and a good cleaning.

 I actually remember it being more challenging I've been able to post pretty low scores with relative ease. Is Team Challenge more difficult?

Might need to go into your settings and adjust difficulty. Should be a button behind the coin door.

Set it to difficulty 4 as thatís what the online settings were when Global VR ran tournaments.
Team challenge adds more courses and has a variety of courses that range from pretty easy to very difficult. But Iím sure Championship also has courses ranging in difficulty too

You need the system restore disc and the 3 game discs for team challenge as well as the TC dongle.

Keep in mind, youíll notice a slow down in gameplay as your computer was designed with championship edition in mind.
I wrote out the computer upgrades you can do on the team challenge Wikipedia page if youíre interested.

Iím very swamped for time at the moment as Iím moving in a few days but I can help with the stuff required for team challenge.
Just give me a week or two. I really donít have time at the moment.

My machine now randomly reboots during gameplay. There's no rhyme or reason I can see. I assume it's getting the old BSOD and rebooting but I don't even get the blue screen first.

The time varies and it's inconsistent at best. I'm now planning on pulling components and checking each one individually. Just frustrating.

Does it beep on start up?
Kinda sounds like the processor is overheating then shutting down mid-game.

This is EXACTLY what happened to me because the heatsink was not seated properly on one of my machines.  New thermal paste and ensuring the heatsink was seated properly fixed it.

Thanks - I ended up with a 7900GT instead of GS. Should be here in a couple days.

I created an image of my old IDE hard drive and cloned it to my SSD for my new machine. I'm happy to load this to a Google drive if it would help someone else. It's running Team Challenge and has the dongle emulator already installed and auto-booting.

Game boots fine, loads all the way to the game, but then gives an error about unsupported video card and starts spitting out the same error message over and over. I'm erring (and really hoping) it has to do with using the internal video card while I wait for the GeForce.

On a side note, I recall there being instructions for changing players. I have those, but I also thought I saw image packs somewhere in here for those players. Does anyone know which page to look at?
