DescriptionThe main differences of the 1998 version of MS Golf compared to its predecessor are the enhanced graphics and sounds.
In this version there are three eighteen hole courses, the Bay harbour Golf Club, Casa de Campo Links, Teeth of the Dog and a nine hole course The Preserve Nine, making sixty three playable holes in all. The game is highly configurable, for example each match can be played with ten difficulty settings, ten different scoring variations including stroke and match play, skins, scramble, bingo bango bongo, and teams. Other configuration options include customising the player, changing the weather conditions, using a two or three click system to control the swing, playing the full course, the front nine, back nine or practice holes and much more.
Each hole has a fly-by preview to aid the golfer and there are optional windows such as the vertical view which gives a birds eye view of the hole and the flight of the ball.
Multiplayer games are possible via a direct modem link, network LAN, and the internet over the Internet Gaming Zone which the in-game help describes as "a site on the World Wide Web that connects, or "matches up", players from all over the world for various types of computer games".
The CD contains a folder called 'Goodies' in which there are alternate models for the golfers - these have to be installed manually, Windows NT4 service pack three a requirement for multiplayer gaming under that operating system, and Microsoft System Information ( a tool for gathering system configuration information to help Product Support engineers solve system related problems)
