Sorry, I'm old school. 3 click is how I learned to play virtual golf and it's what I'm best at with it.
I hate to say it but TW2002 is probably one of the worst Tiger releases ever. I am surprised you even got it to run.

I am telling you that if you take the tutorials for TrueSwing and get to know how to use the swing, you will throw stones at 3-click. I won $10,000 playing 3-click in TW99 and ever since TW came out with TrueSwing, 3-click just does not reproduce a golf swing by any stretch of the imagination. The one key factor that 3-click is missing is feel and tempo. You cannot get that in a swing meter but you can get it in spades with TrueSwing. 3-click is old school, but it's time has seen better days. You can also run AA to your hearts content using TrueSwing....

How the hell does enabling AA affect game logic? Or make objects dissapear?

It doesn't affect game logic, I think it has something to do with the 3-clicky meter-thing that comes up and how that is affected/affects the AA which it masks the golfer.

Like it's an overlay with the clicky meter on it and the invisible part of it covers up the golfer when it's on the screen or makes the rest of the screen disapear.

Like BB said, it's a glitch and a longshot/oddball one at that....but it's annoying to me personally and the way I prefer to play so I like to tease him about it from time to time.

Too bad it is yet another ww2 game. Sick of em. And quite frankly, I don`t relate to the time period. A Nam game I can relate to as it was going on when I was a kid. I like the style better, and the jungle type of warfare. Not to mentiuon the M16 is alot sexier a weap than anything we could get in ww2. LOL

Actually, it does look very generic in it's use of havok physics. The water looks very nice, but notice on the bridge when he throws the grenade, it takes out all the supports, but half the bridge is still up, in mid-air, just floating there. *sigh*, I wish a game would use REAL physics where taking out the supports of an object would cause it to come down, or where "linked" objects affect eachother, rather than every box and wooden plank seemingly not being connected to anything (I mean seriously, did they forget to nail down those wooden boards? They should shoot the construction company for such shoddy work).

I just started playing MP2 again last night, (on Blue and it's surprising the hell out of me how well it's playing on Blue! Damn near as good as on Bubbles! ), and I'm noticing a whole lot more of those arranged physics demonstrations and I like 'em.

The books lined up like dominos, the boxes gratuitously stacked up for you to jump thru, the huge pile of chairs just waiting for a grenade...it's just too fun and too well done!

I bet a lot of the people who make this comment are the same people whom have played Madden for the past 12 years, or various Mario games for the past two decades plus.

I'll be getting this game once it arrives. I'm interested in WWII stuff, and this is a game that is set a bit closer to my part of the world.

I don't see anything good about the physics in those videos though. It looks quite fake and rather silly in places. It doesn't even come close to what we saw with HL2.

never played a pc sports title in my pc gaming life.my fave title is System Shock 2.#2 would be Planescape:Torment,following that #3,Grim
Fandango.Madden and the like,are for people without opposing thumbs(just my opinion of course)why play a football game,when you can get out of your chair,and grab a real ball,and get some friends together and play the real game out in the fresh air.i believe its called the outdoors.what is
even more ironic is this;i would wager that many of the people who say
they like "playing" these "games would dodge a draft faster
then you or i can say the word....
