Have you tried RTSM yet?  You don't need a gauge as the animation is your gauge.  It works quite well actually.

Tried it a little, but it's not really the same. I miss the feedback you get after every swing in Links powerstroke, as it helps me adjust my swing. There seems to be no feel with the RTS in PG in my opinion.

 

I also think the BLI could be far more visible than it is  B)

 

PS  Crow, that wasn't attitude, that was polite.

Take-Two Interactive did acquire the rights to Links.  They were in the process of creating what would have been called "Links 2007" for the XBox 360, when the project was canceled.  I was in an e-mail exchange with Daryl Welsh, who was the producer of Links 2004, in 2006.  He was working for Microsoft Corporate at that time, but was still staying in contact with the 2K Sport team that was developing the game.

 

2K Sports was only a couple of months away from publishing Links 2007 for the 360, when Take-Two Interactive (2K Sports parent company) decided to close up shop with Indie Games (Links 2004 and 2007 developers). From what I understand, Links 2007 was said to be a landmark golf game, which would have been to the 360 what Links 2004 was to the XBox.  It pains me to know that an 80% complete version of Links 2007 is languishing on somebody's hard drive right now, but it wouldn't more than a museum piece today in comparison to Perfect Golf.

I actually had advanced conversations with Take 2 following the closure of Indie and they had agreed to give me the source code to Links 2007 on the condition that we released what we did as a community add on similar to what we had done with the MOD.  The problem was when they closed the studios they just dumped all the stuff into boxes and warehoused it and they were not willing to spend the money to go through everything just to find me the source code...

Wow. How sad. What a lost opportunity.

Wow.... that is heartbreaking to read.  How could they be so careless with such a valuable commodity!!?? I'd have helped fund the search for it if they'd clued me into what was going on!  :)
