    PS Fantastic Four has it, too...when selecting missions. Please fix it! And Earth Defense... LOL... ok, these are the three tables I played today. => every table has it when you select something and confirm it by pressing the A/start/launch button.

    It looks like some internal testing visuals enabled.
    First Barbie addressed this in a few other places. It is not a bug but rather a feature for touch screen users, guess we just never seen it till a update or 2 back. Not sure if there is plans to hide it for non-touch users, or you just have to ignore it.

    2nd
    I would love in the controls section when mapping keys to be able to also map a key for exit/back. I am a cab user, and have been able to play all the games easy enough with or without a front end with just mapping keys.
    That said any user who has a simple setup and does not want to use a mini wireless keyboard or something would need to be able to map the below in game.
    Exit or back button, = escape on my mini keyboard.
    remap the arrow keys= to help move up/down right/left to select game.

    I think if those could be added it would make it super easy for any setup.

I won't have a D-Pad on my pincab, so that will be necessary.
    I have Pinball FX2 on my cabinet (still waiting for proper cabinet support) and I use joy2key to sort out the button to keyboard issue.

    Probably due to the portage from XBox : if you win more than 2 Xtraballs on a ball, the centrifuge shows only 2 small balls (not 3, 4 or 5). And after loosing the ball, it won't delivery a new ball and the table is blocked ► RESTART !
    Thanks, wims!

    You can remap the keys however you like now. What problems are you having?

    I use a KeyWiz and I love it.

    Go with the Steam version so you have the option to run VP, FP and later maybe Pro Pinball and Unit3D alongside to FX2.
    For a controller I'd recommend to hack a keyboard or buy a i-Pac 2.
    The latter is by far the best behaving controller I have in my cab. I used to run it alongside a Nanotech plunger kit which I replaced with a VirtuaPin plunger kit a while ago.
    The i-Pac registers as keyboard unlike the other two it doesn't need a software solution like xpadder to work. Also, unlike the other two it does work flawlessly.

    If you want to know more about caps this thread is perhaps not the optimal place. If you are looking for information about cabs try vpforums.com, vpuniverse.com, pinballx.net, and hyperspin-fe.

    When i saw Barbie have replied i was so hoping we'll get an answer why the music on Steam is mono.

    If you reread my post you'll see that i mention surround and center speakers, those aren't available in 2.0 systems. Yep, i have proper 5.1 sound in all tables on Creative x-fi using spdif with dts connect and nvidia hdmi audio connected to my receiver.
    No problems with sound except the two tables i mentioned and the music is mono on all of them, but still coming from the front speakers.

    I have tested it, and all sound and music are on my 5.1 center speaker by comparison with Ps3 and xbox 360 have true 5.1 sound systems.

    It's totaly inaceptable in 2014 for a famous game, like pinball fx2 to be programmed in mono sound output only ! !

    Yes, that mean pinball fx on steam is just a game with mono sound, unfortunatly.

    Zen studio must respect the wonderfull work from the musicians who have made these musics and sounds, now in 2014, we can't accept this...

    Today, all greats games have stereo or dolby surround sound, why pinball fx on steam is the only exception.

    Zen Studio, give me an serious answer .
    Sorry, you do not get to throw a tantrum, tell other forum members to "shut up" and then expect an answer. Come back in a week when you've calmed down and are ready to be polite.

    On Rome when flippers go up the sound comes from front right and right surround, on their way down the sound is from the left speakers. Slingshots' table sounds come from both front speakers no matter which slingshot is hit, no sound from center.
    On Earth Defense all flipper sounds come from center and slingshots' sounds are the same as Rome.
    All other table sounds and sound effects on all tables i have sound as on the xbox version.

    And of course there is the problem with Steam version where the music is mono, unlike the xbox version.

    I don't play anymore with this steam version: All the sounds in game are in my center speaker (except the sounds of the interface)
    In the ps3 version and xbox360, the sounds are well distributed, musical themes for each table are in the others speakers, this is so much better...

    I will not buy on steam any tables until the problem is resolved...

    Do you know that there are people who have home cinema in 2013, i am not the only one on steam, i hope...

    Thanks very much to awser me finally, third posts and no response from: Corrects sounds in game are not very important for you, that it is sad...


    Barbiebobomb :
    I've not heard any other reports of this but I'll make sure the team is aware.


    Now, 6 month later: NOTHING HAVE CHANGED ! thanks Zen studio !

    As proof, no response from zen studio for the topic "Mono sound" open buy Laffer...

    The message is clear: Stay in mono version Steam gamers !

    Ok guys ? It's clears now, stop talking about this problem, it's not a problem for the purchasers of steam version !

    Ps: Sorry for my english...

    Hi there everyone. I'm very new to the pinball community but not to pinball. Ive been playing fx2 and zen pinball 2 (ipad) nonstop all year so far.

    I have one very huge request, dunno if it will be done regarding licensing and stuff like that, but i was hoping you guys can please maybe create a terminator table, or lord of the rings....or even a ripleys believe it or not one!

    I know there is a lot of copy write stuff involved regarding making a table like that, im asking this cause well....ive kinda had enough of marvel tables and the star wars one too and i find myself really enjoy the normal tables like tesla and paranormal....but in the same breath i have to admit i am also playing the crap out of the new darth vader table and the fear itself one too.

    But that is my 2cents, i really hope it is possible to make these tables and that you (barbie) might be able to tell the guys this too.

    Thank you all. Have a great new years and keep playing with your balls!!
