As I said last week in the Twitch feed, we were hoping for the 15th for the DLC update (Season Mode, Tropical Theme, Delta Theme) although we’d actually pencilled in the 18th. But as we know with all things console, these things can change. The game has taken a bit longer than normal in the certification process, due to the way the game interacts with the shop. Funnily one Sony territory didn’t have a problem with it at all while the others weren’t quite sure it was the best way of doing it – this issue has now been solved we believe, but it’s pushed the date out.
I also had some issues with the documentation to set up the shop. This was due to a slight misunderstanding between me and our account manager, and resulted in me missing some stuff that was needed. I was rushing around like mad trying to get all the documentation correct, but in the end it made little difference as the shop issue would have delayed us anyway. Looking at it now, I’m hoping for the 21st as the day we can push it live.
Another small issue we had was that the new input system we added had a rare bug that would really ruin a round for you, so we had to reverse some of the changes just before we submitted. So there is an improvement, but not as large an improvement as we would have liked. We’re working on fixing those now though, and we’ll make a small update in the coming weeks just to fully fix the 94% issue.
Apart from me rushing around like a mad thing trying to get all this documentation sorted out, the team have been playing the game and designing courses this week. They’re just looking at ways to improve what we’ve got. Jordan made some great improvements to the cart path tool, and Paul and Jim are working on some cool customization improvements in the “Greg Norman Course Designer”. Overall the game continues to get better and better as each day goes by, and I continue to get greyer and greyer. But that’s the fun of making a great game.
