Not sure where to post this. I played a full round this morning without a single issue. Prior to that round an update had installed. Just now I went to play another round and another update was installed which brings up the Jack N. opening screen. A few holes into this round the game stopped responding and my skytrak would still connect but pressing connect to perfect golf would no longer work. The status stuff at the bottom said it wouldn't connect because the machine actively refused the connection. First time I have experienced this. Any thoughts? Prior to this, and since connecting via USB rather than wifi, there hasn't been a single issue and things were working quite well.

Hi,

There have been a few issues today,

If you go into steam, and into you library, Right click on Jack Nicklaus Perfect golf in the left hand mene and select properties, then select local files, and verify integrity of game

If anything has become corrupted this should fix it

Hi guys!!!

I am facing a strange situation while putting in Perfect Golf with SkyTrak:

The ball goes almost straight all the times even if I target to right or left
any advice?

You could try switching off the putting alignment feature in the console. If you do that however you may find that the occasional putt doesn't start on your intended line. This is because the ST sometimes sends erroneous data to Perfect Golf when putting in terms of the horizontal launch angle (HLA). This was tested thoroughly at beta stage which explains why the console has the putting alignment feature which is on by default.

With the ST I think the best way to putt is to aim left or right in game and hit every putt as a straight putt with the console feature switched on.

Hi,
This has been confirmed already in another forum as a bug.
I am attaching here some photos and videos for reference.
SkyTrak leveling: ok
SkyTrak alignment: ok
One of the photos shows me aiming to left about 20 degrees. the putting distance was 20ft and the hole was down about 4in.
The video (link to youtube) shows the ball starting straight and then going to right since there was inclination to right side: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_lOTtlM_4Q

Can a beta tester confirm that this is working?

Just got finished testing.

Unfortunately it's all good. I say unfortunately because I'm now missing putts like in real life on flat, straight putts.

Nicely done.

The update fixed the issue where all putts were starting straight. What you are seeing now is how the Skytrak reads short or low speed putts.

PP Dev still need to add code to allow forgiveness for these low speed putts. Hang in there.

Hi could anyone advise me if you need to select the club in the game that you wish to use

No need to select club what so ever. The Skytrak simply sends the ball data to the game via the SimConnect Interface, and then JNPG does everything it needs with that data alone.
