    Skyrim is Epic Quest on steroids. I managed to beat the dragon (not in one play-through though). Finding a town and selling items is frustrating and confusing yet doesn't detract from how fun the table is. There should be an easier way to sell items as many times I would beat enemies and collect, I would be over burdened and need to sell things I don't equip. Granted putting that aspect of the game into a pinball table is interesting enough.
    How do you go to the shop and sell stuff?
    Also, what are the two talon like symbols mean when lit at the ramps and the gold sun or coin at the left orbit?
    Also also, how do you align the bumper statues/totems? Oh, and how do you craft stuff?
    I'm living the table more but the guide is pretty vague.

    Thanks for any help.

    Fallout Bobble-heads?

    Anyone know how to get all the bobble-heads in the Fallout table? I've been mostly playing Skyrim & Doom, so hoping for a helping hand before I go all in!

    Doom is growing on me. After finally figuring out some the missions and how to go about them, I manged to get close to getting to the wizard mode. Haven't yet because I've been so enamored by the Skyrim table.

    Fallout is the least played. In fact I have maybe tried the table a few time since it came out but I just can't get into the table. The menus detracts too much from the table. Which is surprising since Skyrim has even more menus depending on if you're equipping weapons/items or getting into town to craft and sell. Peter Horvath's Alien Isolation was a great introductory table for him IMO. Perhaps if the menus weren't so cumbersome, this table might get more play-time. Then again I think the other table have been more engaging to me. I'll have to delve into it a bit more.

    Glad this pack came out. I've been so out of the loop in playing some pinball that I've been playing some of the other table I haven't in a while.

    Now I'm curious about the possibility of a Rogue one table pack like you did with The Force Awakens pack. Maybe they can do an unexpected table like Might of the First Order A table that Zoltan Vari (Fear Itself Ant-man, Masters of the Force) has been throwing in some great pinball designs on his tables. He is my favorite table designer yet I'm Finding Deep's overall gameplay much more enticing. Love how he uses the stack mechanic in his tables. Tables like South Park, American Dad, Force Awakens, Episode 3,4 and 5 etc (I can go on) are such to play.

    Btw... Zen folks... Read this ... The suround processing and overall quality of the audio on the Doom table is amazing, I love the low end freq. Decoding on my rear speakers. Wow. Even the 360 panning all the way around! Why don't more games put more differentiation in channeling like that!
    One of my favorite gaming audio expetience on ps4 to date. Good job!!

    Funny story: my girlfriend was playing on DOOM table yesterday and suddenly asked if it's ok for the music to suddenly stop. I put on her headphones with my heart in my mouth. This is the moment of truth. Has she found the mysterious no music bug on my recent table? Gladly I found that she just started the Recharge main mission where the music is really subtle especially compared to other tracks like the ones during multiballs.

    Long story short: it is most probably a feature not a bug If you encounter something similar again, you can check it in the menu. You can also try turning the music volume up in the audio settings. Happy demon hunting!

    I like the Doom table the most so far. It's the "cleanest" of them all

    Skyrim can be good as longs as items etc. are saved (not checked yet) so you don't have to equip stuff every time you play. Still not a fan of stuff covering the playfield (that bastard of a dragon :P) but they seem to implement it now and then so I guess I just have to live with it.

    Fallout is way too much "down time" in the shop etc. Takes too long just to quit the shop. I do not like the zooming in on the achievements or whatever the dolls etc. you collect are either.
    There has to be an option to "autoupgrade/buy" best items and be done with it for us who just wants to play a few rounds now and then. Zen tables tend to take too much time to play in general (my opinion ofc) as it is just to get some of the better high scores. I'm not going to play a 9 hour game again as I did on Secrets of the Deep if the time is wasted on menus and other stuff :P

According to my theory you locked a ball for the treasure chest multiball, and something gave the ball back earlier than the locked ball dot matrix message ended which gives the ball back again. We'll try to find and fix the issue.
    Thanks for reporting.
    It happened after hitting the Doth-something ramps then trapping the ball to slow it down.

If you encounter this problem again you can be sure by turning down the SFX and Physics volumes. Thanks for the report and the kind words!

    p.s. Skyrim is the best table, Doom second, fallout depressingly last.

    Definately my favourite, although sometimes the missions are quite unclear. And I also ran into a bug on this table: During one of the plays, the music just stopped completely. I only had SoundFX. I know the music goes on/off a bit during the track, but in this instance I didn't havr any music untill the ball dropped out of the table.

    Nudge bug on Doom?!

    Im loving Doom but I've ran into an annoying bug which basically causes the nudge mechanic to stop working on that particular ball. A moment ago it cost me the Wizard Mode of Doom.

Of course, back then I was hoping it'd be a launch game. It's definitely getting harder to wait.
    I know they're not going to give a date until they're ready but I wish we could at least know if when it comes out it will have all these new tables available or only select older ones. I'm going to be kicking myself if it's the latter.
    Keep up the great work Zen people!
    Sorry! I'll post as soon as we have more VR stuff confirmed. I hope you enjoy them once you do get a chance to play

    Edit: Where the heck have I been? I just saw posts about PBFX being on PSVR. Guess I haven't used my PS4 much lately having Forza Horizon 3 and Dishonored 2 on Xbox One.
    Going now to DL and play some VR Pinball. Man, I'm so excited!

    On a plain PS4...
    BTW: Love what you did on the main screen. I can now recognize the table-icons again
