Console Patch 1.3/PC Patch 1.4: released August 10th 2016

Various small bug fixes the most noticeable of which were Champagne corks (which had stopped popping) and removing Xbox buttons from the PlayStation version. The corks not popping was stopping players from achieving one of the Signature Smashes and hence one of the Trophy and Achievements so it was an important fix to make.

 

Console Patch 1.2/PC Patch 1.3: released July 12th 2016

NOTE: If you already owned Dangerous Golf then not all features will be automatically obvious (so as to not confuse or annoy those who were perfectly happy with the game as it was!). See notes below in the Control system and Tutorial sections.

Fast Restarts – number 1 requested feature. We reduced them from 30secs to 2-3 secs and it transforms the game in Single Player, in Co-Op and in Party Golf.

New Control system – we introduced a significantly easier single stick, single buttons control system and added in game prompts for all actions. Note: If you have a previous save game the controls will default to the original, more advanced controls. You can change this in Settings – change SmashBreaker Controls to ‘Simple’ and the Drop to Putt controls to ‘One Button’.

More control over Tee off  – introduced ‘Free Aim’ on the Tee and in Putt. Aim where you want on every hole, 360 degrees of movement.

 Follow Cameras – on the Tee and the Putt and we also improved Camera Collision with the Ball. (The Follow Cameras can be turned off and on in the Settings Menu). You can also now use Danger Time in the Tee off.

Better Introduction to the Game Features – we brought back an old friend, Ted Stryker, the LA DJ who recorded all our Burnout 3 v/o, to narrate our new Tutorial Video. This is already on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9Ey0cvc1Kg. Note: if you have already played the game the tutorial will not autoplay – you will need to select it from the ‘How to Play’ menu.

We also introduced a new Loading screen Tip system to give the player per hole contextual help.

More Destructive Power – new SmashWave feature enables Players to cause even more destruction whilst clearing their path to the Flag.

More humour – the ESRB upped our rating to Comic Mischief based on ‘flatulence sounds being heard in the bathroom level’. We thought that was hilarious so listen out for more comic sounds – statues, bears, deer, milk, eggs, skeletons.

Frame Rate – we optimised every Hole and the game runs at a smooth 30fps.

Updated Holes – we listened to player feedback and fixed the Holes that people disliked and evened out the difficulty curve.

Steam specific Features: Support for Steam Controller and Enabled Cloud Save for Steam.

Bug fixes – including Environment Collision, Translations, Leaderboards, Trophies and PS4 Crashes

I am experiencing a problem, is it a known issue?

Check our Patch Notes FAQ for what has already been fixed.

At this time these are the only known issues. If you experience an issue please let us know.

 

PS4 Crashes:

Problems starting the game : the issue is most likely to be a corrupt or incomplete download. Delete the game and redownload it from the Store.

Problem connecting a second player in Co-op and Party Golf

It is possible to use 1 game controller for all players in Co-op and Party Golf – just press X (on Ps4) or A (Xbox One) to skip the add extra pads screen (this is the screen that says ‘Press Options or Menu to join’).

It is also possible to play with multiple controllers and to have a separate profile signed in for each player (meaning all players are earning Trophies and Achievements during their play). To do this follow these instructions:

On PS4: To play with multiple pads and profiles all Players need to sign in with a their Dualshock 4 controller and their profile before starting. Once signed in select Party Golf or Coop World Tour and when prompted, press ‘Options’ on each pad to join. Each profile will appear onscreen after a short delay. It’s easiest if everyone is signed before you boot the game.

On Xbox One: Additional players do not have to sign in if they do not wish to but will earn Achievements if they do. Just connect the additional controllers and select Party Golf or Coop World Tour and when prompted, press ‘Menu’ on each pad to join.

How much is Dangerous Golf?

The recommended retail price is $19.99, £14.99, €19.99.

Is there a manual for the game?

You can find a “How to Play” option in the Clubhouse option found on the main menu of the game. This will give you a headstart on the basics of Dangerous Golf including a video tutorial.

Here are some pro tips that may also help you as you progress in the game:

  • Master the Smashbreaker – the tutorial and the How to Play screens in the Clubhouse explain how. You can also switch to Simple Controls in the Settings menu which enables you to use just one stick for SmashBreaker.
  • Always watch the fly by – they are deliberate and hint as to what to do…
  • Sink Money Flags in sequence to score a PuttDown Bonus…
  • Putting Challenges – Go BIG with Trick Shots. Turn your back on the hole, go for long putts or try for ricochets. Putting straight at the hole won’t earn you the maximum score. This is NOT real golf!
  • Bounce the Ball of your TV screen to add a 4thWall kicker to your Tee and Putt…
  • Pistol Tee and Pistol Putt unlock as you progress through the game along with other more advanced abilities such as Bucket Blast, Glue and Bombs.
  • Return to earlier Holes with any unlocked Abilities to maximise Score…
