    Do you have any good news for us yet? Any idea when we can expect to have an update to fix the hot seat problems and double initials? I think most of us would be happy if you could just revert it back to the previous version before this last update.
    Nothing today, but we should have an update by the end of the week. I'll post when I know exactly what that update contains.

      I still say (and I know I'm repeating myself here) that this is insanity. It's either pure laziness or simply an extreme lack of care for your customers when you are so unwilling to break your normal updating schedule in order to undo your mistakes.

      Pushing a patch to undo the previous one should have taken hours, a day tops, not 2 weeks.

      I was willing to accept this situation when I seemed to be the only one concerned and I received an apology but the more I have time to think about it and the more games of pinball I miss with my dad, the more annoyed I am.

      I have such a hard time understanding why you wouldn't undo your "minor russian language fix" when it clearly did a lot more than you announced it was for and obviously didn't get an appropriate level of testing.

      It saddens me that for the first time ever, I broke my self imposed rules and payed full price for something on Steam, even while these problems happened, I continued to buy tables, I have them all now and payed full price for every single one of them. I allowed myself to do this because the thought of having something to do with my dad had me so excited as did the game itself. I love your game but this whole situation has put a sour taste in my mouth at the thought of the word Zen.

      Now we have gone from "On or before the 9th", which I knew in the first place would probably be the 9th and not sooner, to "should be" by then. This company has a LOT to learn about customer support.

      • Local Hotseat Feature Request

        I know I have done an awful lot of complaining here but in the end we all love this game and I would like to submit a feature request to help make local hotseat even better.

        Is there any way you guys can add support for multiple controllers? Even if you allowed all controllers to control the game which would allow people to mess with each other, it would be a lot better than passing the controller around like we have to do now. If you could make the controllers stick to the player it would be even better.

        Thanks! (I hope)

        • There's no technical reason you can't have multi controller support in hotseat on the PC version, like there was on the xbox version.

          You couldn't do it on xbox because accounts were tied to controllers, but that's no longer the case.

          • Mars Table Bug

            Went to look at the Mars table really quick just to see what it looked like. I had already bought it but we haven't played it yet. I tried a couple whacks at the ball and then paused and selected 'Exit To Main Menu', a box came up saying "Saving..." and then it just froze right there. I could still hear music but no keys would do anything, the game was frozen so bad that it was even difficult to end the task after alt-tab'n out.

              • I just hit the doc ock holds a ball forever and game has to be restarted bug. Doc Ock was defeated with a pumpkin ball while holding the normal one, and he went back to his home spot still holding the normal ball. Flippers worked, music played, and tale can be shaken without tilt warnings, but no progress could be made.

                I thought this was fixed.

                This was a 2.4 BILLION game too... sigh...

                Anyway to get on the beta test team? I can think of situations like this that the table designers might not.

                also i understand why you are unwilling to give a "end game and submit score" choice. it's because some bugs can grant infinite points, like a ball getting stuck on a scoring switch. But there is a very simple fix. If the last switch was struck ten or more times in a row, then consider the bug a "beneficial malfunction" and do not let you keep your score.

                • Feature Request

                  I wanted to add a second feature request. In case my first one was missed, I will re list it too.

                  1. Can you please add a button that will randomize the table selection. While the button is held, the selected table should hop around all your purchased tables in a completely random order until the button is released. The idea is identical to the game show Press Your Luck (Nooo Whammies!!).

                  2. Can you please add support for multiple controllers? Right now if two gamepads are hooked up, only one works and when you play in a living room environment, sometimes you are not sitting within reach of the other player. It would be awesome if all hooked up gamepads worked the whole time or even better still if a gamepad can be assigned to a player.

                  Thanks!

                    Sending to the team (again)! Thanks Typo!

                    Also - while I'm posting - we have an update on the new table + patch for PFX2 on Steam - Looks like Valve/Steam is having some major internal issues with publishing, seems the system will be down until Monday at the earliest. This means we won't be able to bring Earth Defense to PFX2 on time, but I'll keep you posted as I hear more.

                        I know, totally sucks. Hopefully they get things figured out quick, I'm sure we're not the only ones who are trying to publish something.

                            I don't know what their normal work hours are, but they told us they are estimated to have it fixed by Monday at the earliest. It's not even 1pm yet though, so maybe they'll figure it out sometime today, but it sounds like they have some major stuff going on. I'll let you know what I hear.

                                Yeah! It would be nice to have a random select option. It doesn't have to be anything special. Heck, Zen can take the classic Mortal Kombat/Killer Instinct approach (Up+Start) if they want.
