Everybody's Golf / Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational |OT| You're invited too!

How do you get the Platinum crowns? I don't understand what they mean by "Win with only the set club number".
just use the club you start with...they give you a 9 iron...thats what you use (basically just dont change your club the entire round....this one of the easier ones!


The Bronze 100% GIR with rain and gale force winds one is annoying the crap out of me right now. I have 36 crowns complete, soo close to finishing.
im like 2 away (the last 2 gold and the 1 extra plat!)

the gir was easy once i understood what they wanted. I thought they wanted the eagle GIRs...you know the ones where you actually get points,.....thats not the case. for anyone else thinking this. all you have todo is get to green with a birdie putt....you dont need to make the putt, just get to the green for it. IDK the exact % they want as i got 100% on each but i was watching for the last one and got 88% once and didnt get it so it could be >90%

The one i took a stupid amount of time getting was the 50% impact....ill be dammed if my Vita wasnt inches away from a explosive demise a few times attempting this!!!
 
The 50% one wasn't too bad since one messed up shot doesn't ruin your entire attempt. I've missed 100% GIR by one hole probably 8 times. A couple of times on the last hole when my ball rolled an inch onto the fringe.
 
the one good thing about my inability to understand hsg requirements...i maxed out Maxs loyalty trying to hit for them eagle girs!!

oh yeah...pandoras alternate costume is too sexy :(
 
this is the only launch game i picked up and it is sweet. love the daily tourneys- love the online games finally got 2nd place out of 12 players- the other top finishes all were using level 3/3 clubs and ball which i can't wait to get-

need to work on getting more crowns- just started to figure out and use top and back spin more effectively

Woohoo.

Last hole for the 18 hole Daily Tourney match, managed to not only get an Eagle, but a 52 yard chip-in, to boot.

Ended up in the middle of the pack, but that last shot was oh, so satisfying. ^O^
 
Ugh. Landing in crappy lies where the shot is 55-95% or something, and there's a small pond between you and your landing. Of course, the first shot, shoot a little strong and the ball hits for 60%. Stroke. Next shot, go a little more, this time, 100% (which always confuses me), and I land over the green. When the luck factor fucks you, I get frustrated...

Actually, you might have encountered a flyer (is that the correct term?). If you end up in the rough, unless you get perfect impact, you might actually get 110% power on your hit.

It doesn't announce it in this game (it did in Hot Shots: OOB), but I am noticing that when you use the overhead view, the little arrow that indicates where the ball will land, will turn yellow or blue. I "think" yellow means you have a chance of getting a flyer?

Its not explicitly mentioned in the instructions, so I'm not quite sure.
 
I may buy a Vita just for this game... but I'd like a clarification: is online mode region-locked? I may decide to go for the Japanese version of the game (for the voices, except if the japanese voices are available in the western versions), but I'd like to be able to play european and US gaffers. Is it
If Minna no Golf 5 is any indication, yes. But it may have panty shots.

Loving this game.

Edit again: Damn it. Region locked yes.
I imported Hot Shots 5, and bought again when Out of Bounds came out.
 
Best Hot Shots Golf yet, easily.

So god damn addictive. Killed my Vita battery JUST playing this game!

(I'm looking for more HSG friends on PSN. I'm TheMissingLink on there, so send a friend request if you're really active!)
 
Is the Online Pass an actual download? I put my code in at the store and nothing downloaded and I still can't play online. Nothing is in my download list and my code was used. Help me out here.
 
Anyone else having issues with trophies popping? Made a 50 ft putt and hit a drive for 351 yards, got neither trophy.
There's some challenges/tournaments where you can't get trophies like that, usually ones that give you an advantage (Unlimited Power Shots, Mega Cups, etc). The scorecard says "Unofficial" if that's the case.
 
Ok, need some help with daily international tourney. I understand the meaning and the effect of some special rules but there's one I can't understand end make me slip at the end of the chart every try. What I need to do when the "unlimited power shot" rules is on? Do powershot or not? Why i'm alway the last, what i need to do other than put the ball in the hole?

I'm a supporter of digital manuals but put some damn manual in there, not a flyer with 5 pages!
 
What kind of zombie powers compelled that ball to go them last 3 inches :O
Lol I keep watching that replay and looking at it I've really over hit it. If it didn't hit the flag I think it could of rolled onto the fridge. Absolute total luck but hey it's still a hole in one.
Im so glad I didn't overload on launch titles. All I bought was this, Rayman and downloaded Motorstorm. I've played maybe 30 mins of motorstorm, an hour of rayman and around 30 hours of this!!!!

I simply just love it and I know it sounds stupid but it's definitely my goty already in terms of online play.

I have a question for the veterans of the series though. Did the other versions open up more course for online play? I'm just hoping that some of the other courses become available to book and other custom ones with special rules etc besides megacup and that.

How's everyone doing online. I think my record stands at:

Won -2
2nd - 3
Notable finishes -7
Total entered 23

Not too shabby, but not great either. Main thing is this is probably the first time in years I'm not as competitive online and don't really care about winning as I'm having soo much fun. Anything can happen online and don't be downhearted if your in a lowly position as it only takes 1-2 decent holes to put you right up there. One of my only wins involved that hole in one I posted. Btw how many points do you get for a hole in one?

Sounds like you got caught up in the "unlimited power shot + "power shot +2" rule tourney they had. it's like saying, you can have as much candy as you want, but it'll cost you dearly every time you eat some. Kinda scumbag, but basically any "bunker +2", "power shot +2", "hit a tree +2" means if you do the act, or land/hit the object its +2 penalty.
 
With all the years of gaming under my belt I never played any of the games I read the manual and I must say I know there's more to it where's a good place to learn this easy to pick up hard to master game?
 
This game, I love it one day and get frustrated by it the next.

I was playing really well last night online, placing in every tournament and a 2nd.

Today my timing is so off, I just can't do anything right.

And I've read people saying that the Crown requirements are in the game on the challenge menu, well I can't see anything.

I have the website with the guide in my favourites, but where in game? a screen grab would be nice.
 
How big is the file size for this game? I think I might buy it soon, but I dunno if I should go with the retail version or the DD. I only have a 16GB memory card :(

Edit: Wooops, I just saw it says 1.2Gb right there in the OP. Do DD load faster or something? Or it's just the convenience of not having to swap games?
 
It actually the opposite. DD are a tiny bit slower because of the transfer speed of the memory card.
wow really? That kinda sucks. I think I'll just go with the retail version. Though I hate swapping games on the Vita. My fingernails are incredibly short (ehh... I know that's my fault :p) and it's always a pain in the ass trying to open the thingy...
 
Seeing all these posts and how much fun people seem to be having with it, plus a robust online community, it looks like I'm getting HSG today. Plus, Daily International Tournaments?! That's awesome! It'll be my first HSG, hell, my first GOLF game, but it sounds amazing so I'll suffer the agony of defeat over and over to get better!

i thought it was alot more then 110%
yeah flyers the correct term.. if you look at the range% as soon as you start youll get the flyer warning then it goes away...they can be a bit annoying as you used to be able to change direction to get rid of them but now it seems you cant....always sucks htting a flyer shot right over pin into water :/

I thought flyer meant there was an overhead obstruction, haha. I didn't know it meant I could hit it further?

yeah...it happens when you hit certain spots on the rough...the problem is if the flyer actually hits is "random" (which i call shenanigans on, seems when im aimed down a nice straight fairway i dont get the flyer, yet if im aimed for a pin surrounded by bullshit ill hit one)
 
I had a 113% flyer today, overshot the green into the water.

It placed me back where I started, so lowered the power very slightly, but got a 68% power on the ball, plopped into the water my side of the green :(
