    Cool.
    Because the Mars table isn't free anymore I decided to buy that one as well a couple of days ago.
    Everything was OK.
    Today: I lost all my previous tables again, and only Mars is showing as purchased!
    MSRESET.EXE is NOT working.
    Do your purchased tables show green arrows next to them?

    We're still waiting to hear back from Microsoft about when they will go live. Sorry for the delay.

    I have tried a thing to play offline. Offline only works if I close the game dragging the window in the upper border and dropping when it's in the bottom (Modern's default closing operation), allowing the app to get into "sleep mode". If I open the game later with no internet connection, purchased tables can be played normally. What if I close the app (not sleep, but closed)? Offline doesn't work, because credentials and caché are removed. Sorry my expression, but if it is "legal" method for play offline, this is a fudge.

    Oh, snap. I actually did that before asking, expecting some custom menu to pop out. Didn't realize it was under the settings... Thanks for the answer.

    Are you able to play offline? Could you say me how to do it? Thank you

    For the new 'start screen' I am still sceptic:

    How do people (like me) scroll left-right with a mouse? It does not work. I (with a touch PC) have 2 options:
    1. swipe left or right, ok for me, but
    2. like anybody without touch, I have to simulate a touch by clicking the mouse button, hold it and move it left or right.

    It is ok for touch systems, but using a mouse, it works like in 1990.

    I know, it should be more Win8 start screen like, but there I CAN scroll left-right, so...

    Hi,

    I updated PFX2 on around 23 October, th App started, but all purchased tables were gone, well as described above.

    Now, I tried the msreset.exe trick, the shop started, I quit it and now:

    Pinball FX2 starts, but closes shortly after start.

    Did I miss anything?
    Should I un- and reinstall?

    From the post above, I understood, the wsreset stuff at least lets you download all tables purchased, yet, though not solving the offline log-in problem...

    Edit: just saw, the App does not really quit, it is still present in the left bar, it just 'vanishes'...

    Edit 2: ok, I closed the App manually on the left bar and now: everything's fine!!!
    I got all the purchased tables, btw without downloading again! Star Wars tables included!

    I think, before OU7CAS7's post it wasn't quite clear in this thread, that the wsreset.exe trick solves the my-tables-are-gone-after-update problem, at least I wasn't really sure, so:

    ANYBODY, WHO LOST THE TABLES AFTER DOWNLOAD, DO THE MSRESET.EXE TRICK, WHICH IS DESCRIBED HERE!

    Ooohkaaayyy...

    So, I had a nice chat via email with Viktor Györei, the game's Project Lead. From our conversation, I have learned the following:

    - There will be another update for the game, which is expected for release "in the coming weeks". It sounds like an optimistic estimate, so it is likely to be up to a month before everything works again, and as intended, by the team at Zen.

    - The use of the "wsreset.exe" tool is not expected to work in cases where players can play tables that they have purchased online, but cannot play the same tables offline. The next update should resolve this particular issue. There does not appear to be any workaround for this, so it is suggested to wait for the next update to arrive.

    - It appears that Microsoft vets every update that is released by Zen, before it is made available to the game's consumers. In other words, Microsoft has the final say in exactly when and how each update is released. In fact, there appears to be cases where the game's developers cannot resolve particular issues, as it is often a fault of Microsoft's products (Xbox, Windows) that needs tending to, prior to the release of an update. *Please note that this is my take on several posts and or emails that I have seen, including my conversation with Viktor, not what was actually said. If not the entire truth, it must be close to it.*

    - The tournament feature of the Windows 8 version of Pinball FX2 (specifically), has been deliberately removed. The decision was made as the initial feature has been regarded as a "mistake", apparently never quite working properly, and conflicts with the notion of global leaderboards, which are apparently prevalent in other Zen "products across numerous platforms". Viktor said that the team "would love to have it (global leaderboards) in the game", and "expected that global leaderboards will be available via Xbox Live (eventually)". So, it is quite possible that global leaderboards would be implemented in place of the tournament feature, in a future update (probably not the next update).

    - The new interface on the main menu was designed to match that of the Windows 8 Start Menu.

I've had no problems with my previously purchased tables, but it states I should pay for Mars. I guess that's not the intention, since I had access to it before the update...
