    Pro Score (ZP2) does not equal Super Score (PFX2).

    Please go into Zen Pinball 2 and look at the "How to Play" option in the main menu. It explains how the Pro Score works, but it doesn't explain on how it's being calculated.

      Sorry for the misunderstanding!

        It's pretty much exactly what I guessed earlier on in this thread.

        Your Pro Score for each table = 1000 - ([Table Rank / Players] * 1,000).

        I tested this on all 26 tables, and it matched the Pro Score I had listed in-game (or was off by, at most, a single point).


        Like The Avengers: My rank was 350, the number of players was 10,750, the game says my Pro Score is 968.
        1000 - ([350 / 10,750] * 1000)
        1000 - ([0.032558] * 1000)
        1000 - (32.558) = 967.442.
        Close enough to 968 for my book.


        Doesn't explain why some players have total Pro Scores that are greater than the sum of their parts, but since I've seen it's possible for a player to briefly have two separate scores on the same Leaderboard at the same time, if their overall Pro Score is refreshed based off of that data at that very instant, it might be giving them more than 1000 points of score from a single table. (Don't know if that's a PERMANENT increase or if they'll lose those extra points the next time they play that particular table.) That's an "airy theory" that I can't really prove, though.

        But since the Pro Score formula listed above worked on every example I threw at it, I'm pretty confident that it's correct.

          Thank you P.W. for taking the time to figure that out and letting us know. I appreciate it. And to think way back when I was one of those kids in math class that would ask, "When would I ever need to know how to do this in real life?)

            You are right! I checked, it is a percentage based on rank, just like you showed. A+ for you!

              And yet, I STILL hate math in its day-to-day applications.

              But give me some random game-related formula to figure out and I'll concentrate on that more than the game. Like how I had to determine the "Gold Star" formula in Rock Band ... three different times, because with each new game, they tweaked with the formula slightly.

              Of course, my head is full of so many obscure situational-specific facts there's not enough room left for USEFUL information. Heh.

              Now if I could just convince Magneto to stop being an [expletive deleted], it'd be a good evening. I swear, every time I complete one of the 2-ball multiball missions against him, one ball is hitting the final target just as the other ball is draining, resulting in an instant ball loss. Bleah.
