    • Well wouldn't you just know it.

      I own the core table pack, currently not working. I also own the Marvel pack, currently not available and I also own Excalibur and earth defense, both currently not available. I feel I am being picked on!!!!!!

      • ive noticed a few people complaining about the game not even starting up... crashes.

        Hi everything was fine yesterday, all tables imported well. played on all tables then today ive come on and the game crashes on start up... as soon as it gets to the ZEN logo screen it crashes the game and goes back to my homescreen. now i cant even play it full stop and i just purchased all the other tables yesterday as well and i cant even try them out.... ive tried everything from uninstalling ect and nothing has worked.

        is this issue being looked in to at all? thanks in advance.

          Anyway, it's very interesting to hear of [someone from Farsight]'s real opinions of Zen's efforts. I was a regular contributor to Farsight's forums a while ago, during the long, drawn out saga and ultimate train wreck that was the Xbox 360 version and it's delayed-come-vaporware DLC.

          During that time, many members drew obvious comparisons between Farsight and Zen, often referring to Zen's ability to consistently release DLC tables without issue. It often boiled over into heated debate between two camps; those that believe all video pinball tables should be based on real ones (a la Farsight), and those that like new and original creations (a la Zen). I have to say, I am in neither camp. I love both. But some of the Farsight supporters I found to be quite snobbish about it. It struck me as a strange kind of purism. After all, any real pinball purist; the kind of person that would consider a Cirqus Voltaire LED-conversion to be sacrilege, would consider you a pale imitation of a pinballer.

          A lot of the Farsight fans though, would also criticise, even ridicule, technical aspects of Zen's tables, saying the ball is too heavy, has too much spin etc. I have both games and I can't say I've ever noticed. They feel slightly different sure, but nothing that I would complain about. Both feel great... and actually, I do prefer Zen's creations to most of Farsight's real-life tables. I have fond memories of a few real tables but the rest I could take or leave.

          Anyway, I digress. During those... let's call them... "heated debates", the resident Farsight employees would be bastions of respect and appreciation for Zen. I often wondered if those opinions were real, or just for the sake of professional politeness. It seems my suspicions may not have been without credence. That being the case, I think it's sad that they would be critical. I appreciate what Farsight do. Recreating a pinball machine to be dead-on accurate, to not only look, but feel and play exactly like those we have pumped so much change into over the years, cannot be an easy task. But neither does it require much imagination.

          As an artist, I find what Zen do so much more impressive, more spectacular, more magical. It takes a whole different set of skills to create something from scratch, skills that many do not have. What Farsight do is technical diligence of the highest order, but what Zen do is simply genius.
          I got into a lot of debates over there at the FarSight forums. I just couldn't stand that superiority demeanor that SOME of them had. Not all. I mean you can't really rag on Zen. They create their own tables from the ground up. DMD, music, voice acting, etc are ALL original. While I love FarSight's tables as well, it wouldn't be hard at all for developer's to take what's already there and create the tables and things from there. I'll stop there because I really don't wanna get into the tit for tat on whose better at what. I like both for different reasons, but lean towards Zen a bit more because of the animations and creativity there.

            Truly of all the tables and ive bought all of them you have a collection of some of the worse ones ever release IMO haha. Times to go all out and get the likes of The Avengers, Starfighter Assault and Epic Quest to really see how fun and awesome this game can be compared to what you are used to haha. Still im missing Excalibur myself at the moment - was alongside Ms Sploshion Man my most played all time table.

            Anyway i just wanna say in regards to the Xbox One version of the game... major props for the speed of the title load times compared to Xbox 360 version. Used to have to wait a good minute or so before i could even pick a table as they all slowly loaded one DLC after another after launching game, now its almost instant after signing in my gamertag - its simply choose a table as i like, this makes a MASSIVE difference to me.

            • Bring back Nightmare Mansion, Bucaneer and Agents

              Please, bring back all the old tables. They are classics! Pinball history! They can't be lost. Specially Nightmare Mansión, Bucaneer and Agents. You say that they are in "old tech". But you can rebuild in "new tech". Pinball FX is not only Star Wars and Marvel, we like the "independent" tables. For older players, Pinball FX are that tables, living classics that cannot be lost. So please, bring back them. It couldn't be so so so difficult to do it.
              Thanks, and sorry for my english

                  • Suggestion: enable this feature "vibration triggers" to strike with the flipper

                            • We'll be submitting a patch shortly to fix some leaderboard issues, I will post when we find out what day it will go live. We are still working on getting imports fully functional for everyone, I'll post when I have an update on that as well.

                              Thanks again for all your reports/feedback!
