  • Import XBox to Steam, and linking to a non-existent account?


    I purchased tables for Pinball FX 1 & 2 on the XBOX 360, and they imported just fine to the XBOX One.

    I installed Pinball FX3 for Windows 10, and all tables from the XBOX One imported as well.

    Installed Steam version today, was asked if I wanted to 'link' my Steam Account with my Pinball FX (Zen) account. I answered yes.

    No imports found.

    I come to the Pinball FX support page today to open my account up. I don't have one? So I sign up for an account today, and here I am.

    So when I said 'yes' to linking the accounts (Steam and Zen), what account did I connect my Steam account to? As far as I can tell there is no way to find out, or edit, or change, or modify the link. I can disconnect, and I can connect again. Although what exactly it is I am connecting to is a mystery.

    Did Steam just 'make up' a profile for me with Zen Studios? How can I tell FX3 that I have a Zen Account, and link it appropriately?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Ignore the 'link' option, it seems to be a red herring, perhaps a hook for some functionality that couldn't be implemented.

    The simple fact is that when you buy tables for Win10/Xbox, you only get those versions. Steam is completely separate. On a PC, this may not make a lot of sense but Steam and Microsoft are two different publishers and they're not willing to give up their cut of the sales price just because Zen is.
