$362.33 Left to Reach our Goal!

Every year we run a fundraiser to cover the cots of the server for the next year. This last year we had to upgrade servers due to an attack and the costs are a little higher, but as you can all tell it is much faster and much more reliable.  VERY IMPORTANT even though myZIP is reduced to 1MB you can still download courses and libraries by clicking on the course or library name on the Download Tab.  We need to raise $2,500 in order to increase everyone's myZIP size back to 30 MB and for those who have donated in the past once we reach our goal your myZIP file size will be increased back to 1GB. Members who made a donation of $5 or more in the last 30 days have already had their's increased. We recommend a donation of $25 however every dollar counts, however to increase your MyZip size you need to make a donation of $5 USD or more. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE LOGGED IN BEFORE MAKING A CONTRIBUTION.

You can find some help on link below:

This is how you can upload your new course:

Create a folder and add to that folder:

course.tcr (compiled coursefile ) ( logo: required for TW08.....not required for TW07 and older games )
splash.tga ( splash, picture )
coursetext.txt ( text file: you can copy text file of one of the stock courses and change text and save ) ( optional and not required )

after that zip the folder and you will create a zip file ready for upload.( right click the folder and choose: zip )
To do this you will need: a search for winzip on the internet and you will find some resources to download Winzip.
Note: before you upload the zip file it is good idea to try and install the zip file in TW08 with TWCaddie08.

How to upload the zip file:

on top of homepage of Coursedownloads you will see: My account
Inside My will see section: Course manager........and inside you will find: Add new course for Tiger Woods 2008
Follow the instructions on next screen......

different opinion :)

replicas of real course flags
or flag designed for a fictional course adds to the realism and enjoyment of the course

default flags, ie like the EA one in the game, aren't real pretty

there's a number of people who can help with designing associated graphics for your course

For the record....

TW Caddie if you compress the course asks you for all the files and then compresses them so they are ready to be uploaded. It wont let you compress the course unless we are going to approve it.

WOW!! I just tried that and it works a treat! I will be using that method for my next upload. Sheesh Mich, I learn more & more about that program all the time - and yes, I did read the manual! TWCaddie rules with TCX!
