My game was working earlier today. Now the last 5 attempts to get it going show this:

Game is saying it can't see the hard drive. Start by checking the sata and power csble to the hard drive and to the motherboard. If you're getting power then you might have a bad hard drjve.

#3453 5 months ago

I always keep a spare hard drive cloned when it was working so you can swap it easily to troubleshoot issues like above.

Quoted from goodtimes:

IT website, you'll have to enter your cab I D # for a price. I did ask my friend that's a distributor and he said IT doesn't give him any breaks or deals .

Quoted from Pinballer73:

Where will you be ordering from? I asked the same question above, but never received an answer.

There were no discounts this year. They usually give a small break to people who pre-order but not this time.

These are the update files for anyone who doesn't want to wait on their update to come in the mail

https://livewire.itsgames.com/gtl-2324-titan
https://livewire.itsgames.com/gtl-2324-nighthawk

Also looks like you need a usb stick bigger than 32gb this year so last year's stick won't work

EDIT: I'm seeing something saying these might not be the right files for the update, they may not be available until tomorrow. I will update again when I confirm.

EDIT2: those files should be fine to use but for some reason Kevin Lindsay says legacy shouldn't be able to update until tomorrow. However other people have done it successfully and mine seems to be working right now.

#3455 5 months ago

There aren't many discounts. Sometimes if you buy your unit close to the upgrade they will include the upgrade for free. And they used to do a deal if you pre-order early they took a few bucks off. But other than that, if there was something, it's been a while.

Quoted from Pinballer73:

#3456 5 months ago

Legacy update done. I can confirm the files I posted above work. Make sure your machine is on the 0.04 version before updating just in case.

Quoted from NightTrain:

Can someone with the new PGA deluxe can tell me how to install this? Doesn’t seem like the right part.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

My stand took forever to finally figure out . The rough side of the panel is up. The bigger slot in the center is at the bottom where the power switch is. The larger center slot if I remember correctly is so you have access to the power switch from the top....Doesn't the top of the panel has holes in it to attach to two studs on the stand frame?

If you need pics let me know

#3458 5 months ago

Thanks to those that replied with info about ordering the upgrade.

Was that a titan box you upgraded? It didn't work on mine. I tried on my 500GB SSD and then a backup restored to the original 2TB HDD with the upgrade files on a different 64gb USB each time and it fails here:

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
ERROR 2: untar /mnt/cdrom/part5-03.tar
ERROR: Re-image failed! status=1 try=1/5

That part5-03.tar file is good because I can extract it with 7zip in windows so no idea.

No the update I did was on a Nighthawk machine. I'm not quite sure what your issue is.

I got the update USB this afternoon and it was 1 version newer than the download (18.05.03), but it still didn't work. My UUID for the boot partition didn't match what the upgrade was expecting so that created some problems. I ended up doing the file copy part of the upgrade on a VM with my 500gb SSD and the update USB connected, which also required the boot partition size to be increased. Then I had to set the UUID manually with tune2fs to get it to boot up. Not the easiest upgrade ever.

If anyone needs a 23-24 titan image that will work on drives 500GB or smaller let me know.

Wow, impressive that you figured that out. I doubt IT would have managed that, probably would have just sent you a new hard drive

Yeah, they're probably busy today so who knows how long I'd be waiting. I was going to resort to begging for an image if I couldn't get it working.

I used Clonezilla to go from the original 2TB drive down to a 500GB SSD last year, and I'm guessing that changed the UUIDs on the SSD. I don't use it much so I might have missed an option to preserve them when I migrated the drive. I guess it was smart enough to update the grub config or it wouldn't have worked.

Not sure what to do here. ? I am going to have a coworder (computer guy) come over. He says a cable could have gone bad. I'm thinking the hard drive just went bad, like expressed from others earlier. I assume my upgrade will be here in a day or two.

Input/opinions welcomed.

#3465 5 months ago

I’m sending 2 invites to everyone to see what happens. Will move forward based on this week.

It's definitely the system not seeing the hard drive. I'd attach a keyboard and go into the BIOS and see if it's detected there as a start. If it's not you can try changing the cable but it's most likely the drive itself that's gone bad. You could try attaching it to a computer too and see if anything looks corrupt there but the way these drives are formatted I'm not sure you'll be able to figure out much from doing that.

If you know how to load an image onto a new drive someone on facebook should be able to provide you the image and you can just order a new drive from amazon. Faster than waiting for IT to send you one.

Thank you for this. I just spoke with tech support at IT. He said the same thing, likely a hard drive failure. Because it's failed I'm going to need to order a replacement from them for $150++. Or, I said, waht if my buddy has one, can he just copy it. The guy said yeah. Especially because I'm about to upgrade to 2023/24, it would rewrite the hard drive with new code anyway.

so.....Can someone here who has 2022 home edition, get me a copy on an updated hard drive and mail it to me? smalltownguy2 has always been my hero with stuff like this. I better call him.

Which version are you on exactly? 2022 home legacy, or PGA? I'm on legacy and I took an image of my drive before the update but it's 75 gigs. Not sure if you have a good internet plan but I'll put it on mega for you if you want it.

#3470 5 months ago

smalltownguy2 is going to do it for me , and send me a new hard drive.

thank you very much though.

#3471 5 months ago

When I was running an update (2 updates ago) it also fried my hard drive. Was $100 from IT back then.

So I waited until momnday to pay for my update. Completed the form early in the day. Never received a email receipt or confirmation from anyone at IT. Checked my credit card statement and it was charged for the update.
So I emailed the person who sent me the confirmation for the last update and was told -

Hi Rey!
Thank you for contacting me regarding your update!
I did take a look to see what’s the issue here and it appears your order was stuck in the que and was not released. We sincerely apologize for that! I’ve alerted our shipping department to get this order out today asap!
I will provide tracking information once shipped this evening.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and we thank you for your patience during this time.

I thanked her for the info.

Still waiting for a receipt/confirmation/tracking #.

just want to make sure Im looking at the right thing as this is my first year with a golden tee. Its 500 bucks to update? I have a PGA tour version. It says its a clubhouse edition upgrade? Is that the on location version, or the home?

Clubhouse is the home version. 500$ now includes the online subscription as well.

What does the online sub really get me? Just ability to play online? So is this 500/year or is this 500 every 2 years?

Thanks

If you want to upgrade to the current version you have to get the online subscription, it's a bundle and I believe they're doing it to try and keep more consistency between the machines. This way if an operator wants to be online they have to be current and vice versa.

$500 will update you to the 2023/24 version and give you a year of online access. Each year there is an update with new courses and changes to modes etc. so you can expect to pay another $500 next year to stay current and stay online.

Online gets you the ability to log in as your character with persistent stats and gear between all machines, commercial and clubhouse. Playing online is more difficult with harder wind and tee/hole placement and how you can aim. You also get to play in competitions/event/invites. I don't think you can play in events if you are not on the current version.

#3476 5 months ago

Thanks. I do jalperts two invites each week. But where do i look to see these online contests?

#3477 5 months ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

When you choose online play from the game menu you should get the option for 18 holes, contest or event. 18 holes is just playing by yourself but your stats are tracked, contest is a round where you are up against 19 other players with the same setup. It's just for fun, you don't win anything but you can see how you stack up against other players.

Event is a weekly challenge that you have to pay to enter and you can win money. This is where all of the hardcore players play. If you can't consistently shoot -22 or better on every course in the game you are likely never going to make money in this mode. I consider myself pretty decent at this game and I've yet to rank in the money

#3478 5 months ago

Ok Ive only ever done the invitationals. I dont even know if I ever saw any other option.

#3479 5 months ago

damn them for not taking american express....

#3480 5 months ago

Everyone who wants, and can accept invites please PM me. I'm going to start the list from scratch now that the update is out.

#3481 5 months ago

Dang, 2023/24 has been downloading for the last 5+ hours. Seems like it always takes forever.

#3482 5 months ago

When you download the new 2023/2024 version, do your casual scores on courses reset/erase?

I haven’t joined online yet and not sure if I will.

Yep, all machine records reset when you update. It's annoying, it would be pretty simple for them to write those to a file as part of the update so they can be maintained.

At this point they can barely get a bug-free product out the door in 18 months. Don't push it.

lol yeah... I'm finding myself less and less interested in the game lately. Almost regretting having paid for the update.

The half support for legacy machines is a slap in the face to everyone after they told us we'd get 5 years of support after PGA released. Would have been really nice of them to say up front that it was partial support and we'd be losing features.

#3486 5 months ago

I finally found a cheap one near me, always enjoyed the game!

Edit- I should say another pinsider found this and scopes it out, then alerted me to it. Thanks Mike!

Sadly- I feel the same way.
They were not upfront about anything regarding the legacy.
All they're focused on is their casino gaming.

#3491 5 months ago

Not trying to argue, genuinely curious, the legacy got 5 new courses. New courses have usually been the big motivation to update, that and contests and invites which still exist.

What wasn’t in this update that people were expecting?

The 3 remastered courses is the big one. These new modes like target rush and money shot would be nice to get too. They didn't give any indication that features like that would be bifurcated between the machines when they announced 5 years of support for legacy. The lack of transparency annoys me more than anything.

100%

#3494 5 months ago

So legacy, up until this point, got 7 total courses, 5 new and two remastered? And this year they shafted legacy players the remastered courses?

Yeah, it's a little weird though. 2 of the remastered courses are already in legacy: Cumberland and Kangaroo Trail. They're "remastering" them for the new platform, but I've not actually played them on a PGA, so I'm not sure how different they are (or if they're even out yet).

#3496 5 months ago

So, they are still remastering the same number of courses, they are just remastering them to PGA and not legacy?

The marketing sheet said 3 remastered courses with a check mark beside PGA and an X for legacy. I am not certain if those 3 remasters include the 2 that people are saying are already in legacy. If that's true then it sounds like they're upscaling two of the existing remasters and doing one true remaster.

#3498 5 months ago

It doesn't look like legacy cabinet submissions are being featured in the STOW anymore.

I don't get SOTW on my legacy cabinet at all anymore during attract mode. I know they finally brought back youtube integration but it seems SOTW is only for PGA now.

#3500 4 months ago

I just saw this... so apparently money shot is coming to legacy HE? It was a facebook post and some people are saying it hasn't launched yet and some are saying it's there.
