    Ok good so there is something that triggers it to shut I guess. Still the fact remains that they should have this down to a fine art by now. I shouldn't have to deliberately play around the bugs because zen messed up

    Unfortunately on 360 it works something like this…

    - Barbie reports bug to the ‘team’.
    - ‘Team’ say we can fix this with a patch.
    - Man responsible for authorizing money for the patch says no.
    - Bug remains.

    Underpinning this is the fact that most of the casuals don’t find these bugs. Seeing as they form the vast majority
    of customers there is even less of a reason to fix them.

    I think I read somewhere that a patch costs $25,000. If that’s true then probably over 2500 of us could
    refuse to buy the tables and it still wouldn’t outweigh the cost.

    I guess there is the loss of goodwill to consider and the fact that us here on the forum are the most vocal supporters
    of FX2 – I don’t know how you quantify that financially.

    Personally I didn’t buy the Star Wars tables because I suspected there would be problems with either
    bugs or scoring balance. I wont be buying any more tables unless this improves. Zen should have this stuff
    down to a fine art by now.

    Omg

    Unbelievable. Bug after bug after bug! Why?! I've been such a huge supporter of zen and now I think this might be my last purchase. It disgusts me that potentially the best table in the game has game breaking bugs. Pathetic and inexcusable. I just wish there was pride in the work especially with the time put into it. I finally figure a way around the glitch that freeZes the game but then the stupid trap door opens and I'm stuck with it my face for the rest of the game! No matter what I did it couldn't be fixed. I got so disgusted I just tilted every ball I had and recorded the score but I'm definitely calling it a quits. Take some time to fix your tables zen! Whether its expensive or not because this table should have been your masterpiece. Was looking that way at first

    Best table ruined

    Yep I had 1.3 billion on ball one with five extra balls and the empire reward has screwed me twice. Looks like I'm not going to win this one. My strategy involves going that way so I'm screwed. Hats off to the guy with 4.4 bill. I'm not taking that risk.

    I started "AT-ST Rush" as a reward from spelling FORCE. While it was still active I started Scene 5 checkpoint 1. Normally during Scene 5, shooting the right ramp causes the ball to drop into the upper-left sinkhole and then down to the right mini flipper. When the AT-ST mode ended the ball wouldn't drop down but instead went through the cloud city spinner and down to the left flipper. Since it was impossible to progress Scene 5 I just waited for it to fail and started again. Everything worked fine after restarting the mission.

    I'm really happy with all the new tables, but this is easily one of my overall favorites. Nice job deep!
    Thank you for the report, this has slipped through. Although you can manually stop the ball in Cloud City with the lanuch button any time.

    how to avoid the Yoda - FREEZE

    i only run in to this Bug , if i go for the kast Yoda Letter "A" & AT-ST Hurryup (or R2D2 ) are running at the same time .....
    those to Hurryups let the upper Bumpertowers Glow & Spinn arround ....
    i can always avoid this bug if i let the Hurryup Countown run down if Yoda is ready to lock the ball for choosing a Gift

    No bug, tried again and got to 9x plus one more set of rollovers lights the extra ball.

    Not sure if this is a bug but I had 9x multiplier, no extra ball lit.

    Well, you helped Deep to precisely identify a nasty game-ending bug, which I presume will lead to a fix with the next update. So hopefully other people will be thanking you too or at least thinking it to themselves if not saying it. I'm glad to just know about what causes it so I can make sure to avoid it myself.

    Hi again deep,

    I don't know if you realize the importance and significance of your sentences, when you're playing.

    But believe me if I tell you I just finished the most complex and technical game of my life.

    You, thank you ! I think you'll be the only one who thanked me, and that many will rather call me cheater

    Is this only on the Xbox or will I run into this problem on Win8 and my iPad also?

    I have been holding out on playing this table as it seemed to be the most complicated and it sure is. I didn't though reckon on the fact that the biggest complication would be all the effort that is required not to run into a bug!!! Not fun
