$339.18 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.

Click Here to Increase your MyZip Max File Size to 1GB and activate the Shoutbox

Exit = one of the many commands from the Menu button, lower left side

... and it shouldnt need saying, but you need to do the confidence folder fix for every player you use

alt key will bring up menu but exit is on 2nd submenu so not much of a time saver

there's no exit hotkey like the CNTL + ones for other functions

sorry misread your clarified question

do you mean exit to the desktop (while leaving game running) ?

commonly referred to as 'tabbing out'

use alt + Tab or for most, the Windows Start keybord key also works

game is minimized and you're on your desktop

Will this cause me to lose my confidence settings?

Hi you can try it out......
Before you delete both files:
First copy both files and paste to your desktop......

Now delete both files in TW08.....and try to play a course.
when you are not happy you can restore both files you saved on your desktop.

I tried it out, and it's amazingly faster. I now see that this bug is mentioned elsewhere in the forums. The loading time was driving me crazy, so thanks for explaining how to do this.

So, I still have my files backed up. What am I losing if I don't use them? Doesn't confidence affect my shot? And what's in that other file? Just curious...

losing ?
nothing
confidence is just a visual pat on the back, it has absolutely no effect on how good or bad your actual shot is
all it does is visually tell you: you've made shots like this lots of time, go get em
OR
you suck at this type of shot, good luck LOL

i've had the 2 files read only since day 1 when this fix was published on EA forums
i still get the "practice is available on hole x" message after a game
and i'm still as good or bad as ever
