  • Captain America Attack bugged on Civil War (PS4)

    In addition to the gamebreaking bugs from my other thread, a comparatively minor annoyance on Civil War:

    During Captain America attack mode (the one that's triggered via the whirlpool) the first shot you're supposed to make sometimes simply doesn't register.

    You are supposed to hit a red target to the right of the whirlpool (I think it's the ramp that also starts fights) but even a full force, clean hit sometimes doesn't register as a successful shot. I managed to hit that thing cleanly 4-5 times during a single mode and it's safe to say that it just bugs out sometimes. I have no idea what may cause this, it seems pretty random. Maybe hitting the target the second the mode starts (you can hit the target before the table is ready - despite the target already being there, there seems to be a short delay before you can acutally hit it and have it register as a hit). At least that's the only thing I can think of. It happened to me about 1 out of 5 times I played that mode; so, it's been a pretty frequent issue.

    • Star Wars Pinball: Episode VI Return of the Jedi

      Stuck on the Return of the Jedi table. I had just completed the fourth mission. Before shooting the last target for the Tie Fighter, there was only one ball left. I'm not sure if that's correct or not (I suspect not), but I decided to continue playing anyway. Got the target, was given the reward points for completing the mission, and then the game failed to give me my ball back. Tried nudging and tilting... nothing. So, now I'm stuck at 1.5 billion points, and I can't do anything. Again.

      Please start fixing these issues. I will not buy any more tables until they are fixed!

            Hi Zen Studios, I play with the PS4 console, and I have detected a couple of bugs using the X button in my control.

            In the tables with a plunger, to start a game I can use the right stick or the X button. The bug that I have detected occurs when I press the X button to launch the plunger. If I keep pushing the X button, the plunger gets crazy and it moves like if I were pressing the X button repeatedly. This problems happens many times, but there is another problem, when I press the X button, this one is not detected. I press the X button and nothing happens until few seconds, but in the worst case I have to leave the game and start again.

            The second problem occurs in the SECRETS OF THE DEEP table. When I activate the Periscope Sink Hole, and it starts to spin, I have to press the X button to shoot the ball out of the periscope, so I press the X button and NOTHING HAPPENS!!!! I press repeatedly the X button but nothing happens, so the spin of the periscope ends to spin and shoot the ball automatically. This problems happens occasionally, not allways.

            Anyone has detected these problems too? Are these problems commented yet? @cantankerous-- do you have these problems too?

            Thanks for your attention.
            Hi! Could I ask if you experience this x button problem on every table? Is it possible for you to try it with another controller?

                Hey Linne. It's Windows 10.

                I think I may actually put in some of my laptop's specifications in my signature if I can, just to make it quicker and easier for Zen staff to know what I'm using...

                  Whats been done about the Flippers going off angle.

                    1. Alt-F4 on Steam version crashes the game, instead of closing the app like it does on almost every other Windows app in existence.
                    2. Had music on Bluetooth headphones. Turned off Bluetooth headphones. Instead of sound going to Speakers as the default audio device, the game crashed.
                    3. Bug with remembering the last camera position STILL hasn't been fixed.

                    • Hello @Linne_Zen !

                      Well it takes me a long time to login here again. And the most important thread for me is this one.

                      Honestly most of the fans there were here to report bugs, they give up, because there's no one to answer them, and nothing is fixed since years.

                      I just see today Zen seems to have more interest of these thread, because of your presence. It's a good thing. So if you need some help, you can count on me.

                      You can see all the bugs in video here :

                          • PS4 Skyrim Bug

                            Originally posted by sui99 View Post

                            I encountered the following two bugs on the Skyrim table:

                            1) Lockpicking straight up doesn't work. Everytime I encounter a locked chest, the screen that is supposed to bring up the lockpicking minigame just stays black. I can see the DMD describing what I'm supposed to do and I can quit the mode but I can't pick the lock (since there is no lock on screen ^^). Lockpicks also don't break if I attempt to do it blindly but I can hear the sounds of turning the lockpick and trying to pick it.

                            Lockpicking bug still alive on PS4

                            • Thanks Linne.

                              I would like to make another suggestion, and also ask a question.

                              Recording games is much easier to do these days, thanks to applications like nVidia's Game Overlay (Alt + Z), or Microsoft's Xbox Game Bar (Windows Key + G). Would it be possible to submit video clips of problems to Zen Studio staff, so that they have a better idea of exactly what the problems we are having, and potentially the cause of those problems? It is quite possible that some bugs are only reproducible based on a specific sequence of events, and if those events are recorded, Zen Studios staff can then get a much better idea of how these bugs happen. Please let us know if this is possible, the email address or webpage that we can submit video clips to, and the maximum file size allowed.

                              I have just recorded a session of myself playing Star Wars Pinball: Episode IV A New Hope, because I knew there was a good chance that a bug would present itself on that table. It didn't take very long until such a thing happened. In this case, the turnstile bumpers didn't reappear after completing the third mission (which I have seen happen before), and Zen Studio staff may be able to look at the video clip to work out why this happens.

                              Also, I would like to suggest a much better place for people to submit any bugs that they have with Zen Studio games. It may be something as simple as the form on Zen Studio's Contact Us page, or something more advanced like a bug tracking site appended to the Zen Studios website. At least, it would be something that would allow details of the bug to be filled in, such as the name of the game (and table in the case of Pinball FX2 and FX3), a description of what went wrong, and what was expected to happen. Optionally, an upload button to upload a screenshot or video clip.

                              The best setup would be a more complex case management system, which assigns each case a particular number. It would send an email to the person who reported the case, letting them know that their bug / problem has been received, and will be reviewed as soon as possible. When Zen staff actually look at the case, they can then comment on it, letting the reporter know whether or not they were able to reproduce the problem, and if so, when the code will be fixed. This can be sent as an additional email to the first automatic email sent to the reporter. Each case may also be assigned a status to let the reporter know about the progress of each case sent (In waiting: case received by the system, but not looked at yet; Confirmed: case has been looked at and confirmed by staff / developers, but not yet being worked on; In progress: a developer is working to fix the code, etc.) Other people who have registered can also look for and view each case, and vote the cases up if they have encountered the same problem(s), thus giving more credibility to each case, and more likely that they will be looked at and fixed.

                              If you want to be extra nice, you could implement a rewards system for anyone consistently reporting bugs. It could include awards such as giving the reporters free games, or free game addons. In the case of Pinball FX3, a background like the Beta Tester background (call it "Bug Reporter" or something similar), or redemption codes for pinball tables they may not have already.

                                To me the reward would be if they actually ever fixed any of the bugs being reported.
