  • Game ending glitch on ESB table

    Zen, I've encountered a shattering glitch on the Empire Strikes Back table on the Xbox 360 version that has just locked up the game completely. The dot matrix shows me having the AT-ST Force mission (with 9 seconds to go), and the R2-D2 mission (with 16 seconds left) and upon hitting the right ramp to collect the "A" (4th letter) in YODA, the game has just locked up completely. Tilt won't work, launch won't work, the flippers move but the game has simply crashed. I'm sitting at 1.4 Billion on ball 1 with 3 extra balls and at least 200 million in EOB bonus with roughly 4 hours played and now game over...I'm livid to say the least. Is there any combinations of button pressing to get my game to continue???

    Holy superior 1.4 B on ball 1? Jeez, I'm impressed. I tried to look for this awfulness you described but no luck yet. Do you remember what dot matrix animations were playing when the problem came up? Did you see the Yoda animations, or not? Maybe the dot matrix queue system had some disorder, I'm trying to reproduce and kill the bug. Sadly there is nothing to do with this in-game you can't help it I try to fix these kind of problems in a future patch, and take steps to prevent them in future tables.

      Hey deep, thanks for the response. The dot matrix was displaying what I mentioned in the orginal post. It's showing those 2 missions active with the respective timers. The YODA light was flashing, I had 3 letters lit currently, this was the 4th to get his gift, and I shot the ball into that ramp and the YODA light then turned solid, but the ball got locked under the ramp (I'm guessing) and that's it, game frozen. The dot matrix display is still displaying an animation that keeps looping but the timers for the missions are locked and won't move. I've had two missions active before when collecting YODA's gift and I've yet to had that happen, maybe it has something to do with the fact both missions I had active are involving the jet bumpers?

      Edit, to answer your question, No the YODA animation and me choosing my gift never occurred. The lockup seemed to initiate once I hit the ramp to collect the 4th letter.

        I experienced this bug as well. I had completed scenes 1-5 and was trying to build up my YODA wizard bonuses. I had just started up the the AT-AT hunt mode. I had spelled at YOD and I hit the right ramp again to complete YODA. My ball was locked, I chose my Yoda bonus but the ball was never released. The timer for the AT-AT hunt mode was frozen and I could not nudge to tilt out of it. Luckily I was nowhere near a billion. I think I had a little over 100 M.

          So you actually chose the award and then the ball stuck? I can start the bug hunt with that, thanks!

            Yeah, I'm pretty sure I chose a YODA award before it froze. I made a video of the table after the bug occurred. I don't know if it will help you but I can give you a copy if you like. And I still have the game saved in this stuck state so if you need anymore info I can start it up again.

            Edit: I sent you a PM with a youtube link of the video.

              Thanks for your footage! I am going to neutralize this awfulness asap and apologies for the inconveniences!

                I know you're all zen in Zen studios. But believe me, players who can't confirm their scores after several hours of playing... are not Zen at all !

                Three new tables, several new bugs (as I suspected before buying them). Now I'm at the point where I say :
                - "Great, a new table ! Let's see which new bugs it contains ?"
                It's really, really annoying and I'm so disappointed. Don't know if I'll buy your next games.

                You must recruit some testers before realese, and launching tournaments.
