      Yeah, I eventually figured that out. Though I run into problems when I accidentally hit the orbit when going for the right ramp or when I hit a really hard shot. Both of these situations tend to surprise me and I react to late. Also, what defense do you have when hit that right orbit at just the right speed? It goes straight down the middle and all you have left is a nudge and a prayer. I would try to avoid this orbit altogether if it weren't for the fact that you need to hit it for kickbacks. Luckily, it seems to light both at the same time.

      On a different note, I just played Iron Man for the tourney and threw up 150M. Got to Ultimo three times and failed three times. What the hell is his deal? Any dude who grabs your balls and tries to throw them is not cool in my book.

              Thanks, I'll try it. By the way it is not totally auto launch as there is some sensitivity on the pressure you apply to the X button on some of the tables. Street Fighter and Earth Defense aside as always.

              • i would of like the scoreboard to have remained the same , now if you make millions or billions it only shows for example 291m , instead of 291,453,874 , i would rather see the whole score , another why did you tweak that too ?

                    If you have the option to demo all the demos I would recommend you do so. Are you on a different platform? Tesla is part of the core table in Zen pinball 1. Anyway I love the avenger's Chronicles pack. Fear Itself being my favorite table. MARS is a great table IMO. Thor, Moonlight, X-men, Excalibur. Heck all of them are good IMO.

                    I love tables that require accurate shots. MARS, Iron Man, Fear Itself, Excalibur, Earth Defense, seem to fit in that category. Iron Man seem to be disliked by many but I love it. It's a low scoring table and you really have to work for the scores.

                    V12? I don't like that table. Can't really explain it. Probably will never play it again even to beat my friends scores. It's my least favorite table next to Ghost Rider.

                      If you have Tesla, then you already have V12 too. Paranormal and SF2 are my favourites ones. The Avengers pack is great too.

                      If you wan't a table with simple layout, buy MARS. If you wan't a very complex one, buy Ninja Gaiden.

                      I'd suggest you to buy all Zen tables one by one. They are all great!

                          All you had to say was the "Zen Classic Pack" and we would have known which tables you had.

                          I personally recommend going after all of the tables, especially the Marvel Classic Pack. I know that you have played Blade and Iron Man on the 3DS, but these tables look stunning on ZP2. Blade had one heck of a graphics overhaul. The night mode has some very wicked light reflections now.

                              I can only speak for the tables that I own, but here's my two cents. If you love PvZ and Sorcerer's Lair, you'll probably love Epic Quest too. It's got the same balance of fun to difficulty as those two tables. Paranormal is a harder (easier to drain balls) but the layout is great and sports some really fun flippers and missions. At first glance, MARS seems a bit barren compared to most tables, but the openness makes for a refreshing change from some of the busier layouts. I find it pretty and love the holographic effects on the table. You can keep the ball in play fairly easily but will need precision to complete missions and rack up scores.

                              The original Marvel pack is also really good. Spidey is fun and highscoring. Blade is addictive with a store and night to day table shifts. Iron Man is the lowest scoring table of the ones I own, but I find the challenge compelling and enjoyable. Wolverine is the table that I play least. Evenso, it's a fun table. Enjoyed touches like the spinning roulette wheel under Sabertooth and the collapsible wireframe.

                                Got it thanks. I always just use to use the X button with the pressure sensitive release, but the right stick works better.
