- Bugfix: Updating from 34.4 and earlier versions no longer breaks the currently set sim type. Many users who updated to from 34.4 or earlier to 36.5 through 38.5 may have experienced an E6 error message that they are not authorized for a sim type that they don’t use (such as SkyTrak users not being authorized for ProTeeUnited). If you are experiencing this issue, please visit our Support page for help.

- Bugfix: The aiming stick no longer stays visible in Quick Play Games after confirming its new position.
- Change: Removed the old framerate limiting feature that would cap E6 at 20 FPS if it wasn’t the currently selected window. This feature has caused issues for some users and it is no longer needed.

- Fixed: Adjusted the physics of a few playable areas on Skill Shot Challenge such as the bounce pads so that they behave as intended.
- New: Long Drive Range is available to E6 Cloud Subscribers. Don’t be fooled at how the Long Drive Range appears in your Course List for play. With only a single hole, it’s not really a course at all. The Long Drive Range was created so that users can host Long Drive Events on a perfectly flat and wide open range. At Five hundred yards long, and fifty yards wide, this should be big enough for even the best hitters out there.
