Here is my advice, don't get the PC version if you ever want to play the Xbox version again. The XB version is utter s*** compared to the PC version. I was wondering why people were posting about timing issues and now I see why, the lag in the swing on the XB version is ridiculous, you almost have to start your downswing before you golfers club is 3/4 of the way back to get a perfect. I literally jammed it once just to see if getting a fast was possible.
This is bad enough with normal shot but with pitches, chips and putts it makes the game unejoyable. Since you guys have the meter on you can actually see how bad the lag is. I push forward at a point but the meter continues going back past where I started the down swing. Putts were just insane if you start forward when you feel the vibration your golfer is still going back so I would jam the stick forward which is what causes those too hard hit putts.
Literally none of this exists on the PC version plus the game looks 1000 times better and feels more realistic.
Since I just wasted $60 I will play a bunch of rounds to try and get used to the XB version but I think I will start a DSP society for anyone who has the PC version and my advice if you have the ability to get the PC version do so, much of your frustration will disappear with this game. I honestly can't believe how bad it is in comparison and how none of these streamers have noticed this? I guess don't bite the hand that feeds you.
Jon I will record a round for you.
Thanks Dan... your verdict was what I thought it would be, but I wasn't sure the differences would be quite that stark. I was able to run TGC 2019 at 60 FPS, as long as I kept the resolution at 1440p. If I used 2160p, I'd see 30 to 35 FPS. It sounds like 2K21 is on par with TGC 2019 in terms of frame rate performance, so I guess if I bought 2K21 I'd be running it at 1440p to get 60 FPS.
I turned the swing meters off day 1, but some of the Societies have them locked on. I know they're on when I played my two DSP rounds, and I should have looked to see if I could turn them off, but I didn't. I really find them to be more annoying than an aid, but everyone has their own preferences for stuff like that. I use the haptic feedback as my backswing baraometer, although it starts a bit early, IMO. I've calibrated my senses to it and am doing okay with it, but my tempo varies in ways I can't always reconcile.
I'm going to be $60 lighter in the pocket thanks to what you've said here today man!
That's all I needed to hear... I'm dying to see how this new swing interface works with feedback that's updating twice as fast. It made a difference in TGC 2019, I know that, so much so that I had to quit playing it so I could keep my senses attuned to the XBox One version and be somewhat competitive.
What I'm really hoping is going to happen though is that HB Studios is going to take the 30 Hz vsync lock off the XBox One version if it senses you're playing on an XBox Series X. I know good and well this game could run at 60 FPS on the Series X, and that would make the XBox One version so much more desirable. I've asked them about this and all they'll say is that 2K21 will be backward compatible on the Series X... well Duh!?
Microsoft keeps saying that XBox One games will look better and run faster on the Series X, but can they really run them faster when the developer/publisher has a 30 FPS lock on the code?
