        So I purchased the table pack on PS4 an hour ago. It says installed, but I can't download the tables. There are bouncy arrows next to the tables, but I don't see any active downloads. Any suggestions?

          You need the demo table pack and the unlock key. So, two files to download. I had to close the application before it would allow me to play after installing both files.

              There are two files. If you dont purchase it then its a demo, but if you purchase it you get the add-on and the key. You could just go to your downloads and reinstall both files.

                Can someone from zen help me?
                I purchased the table pack, same as always. My paypal account was charged, and I got the confirmation email from Sony Playstation.
                The 1.1 MB add-on was downloaded and installed. However, there was no second (demo) file like there usually is.
                When I go to play the table in the main screen, there are bouncy arrows next to the table icons, indicating that the tables need to be downloaded. But, when I push X to proceed, I can not download anything.
                I don't see any active downloads, and nothing that I can see to reinstall the files.
                I have restarted the PS4 3 times.
                Please help.
                Thanks

                  Dude, just go back to the store. The file will be there. No one from Zen will be here till tomorrow morning.

                  I have experienced this same issue in the past.

                        the lando table is unplayable due to that left outlane.

                          Tried out the SOLO pack and have to admit, these are pretty good.

                          The Solo table is very interesting and can lead to pretty high scores IMO especially with the Multi-ball that you have to start by capturing it then hit the captured ball. Modes are easy to start once you get used to the shot to light the letters and then do the mode. I really like this table because of the moving targets that requires timing and accuracy. All modes require hitting lanes and ramps that lit in random order. Appreciate this table as it felt better than the last SW pack.

                          Calrissian table I like too. Scenes start by shooting the sinkhole 3 times. You can pick which ones to start. Another table that I think requires accurate shots which I love. Seems harder than solo but I still haven't got the feel for the table yet.

                          The last table - Battle for ???? Is ok. This is a table I have had less time with. I thought I'd like it better than the above 2 but didn't. It reminded me too much of Jurassic Park Pinball Mayhem. I think you shoot the blue-lit lanes several times and go into the sinkhole just below the bumpers when it appears. There are several modes started this way but couldn't pinpoint what each does.

                          Overall great table pack and a bit better than the last SW pack IMO.

                            Because it had a wizard mode achievement, I started out with Lando’s table. I’ve beaten it twice now and I like it quite a bit. The gameplay can get pretty hectic at times, mostly because of all those pop-up targets. I also (and always) appreciate the fact that the missions are easy and fast to start up.

                            The table is more ambitious than Jurassic World but less so than Aliens. Of course I haven’t seen everything the table’s got to offer yet but so far, I haven’t come across any FX essential for gameplay that wouldn’t be possible to recreate on a real life table. (Typical for a Crofts design.) I haven’t worked on strategies yet but I like the fact that you can use multi ball during (all?) the missions. I do feel he could have done more with the cross ramp. It’s somewhat underused. And the wizard mode celebration is a bit of an anti- climax. Especially after all the fireworks on Adventure Land.

                            The left outlane definitely bumps up the difficulty level. It wouldn’t be out of place on a real life table either. I tried backhanding the pop-up targets with my left flipper up, even after the shot, to try to keep the ball away from the left corner but it ain’t easy. Wall nudging is hard too.

                            Which forced me to come up with a very strange strategy for beating the table. I haven’t played the classic mode yet but I used the Rewind wizard power in normal single player basically as a left kick back.

                            I also found that bang backs from the right outlane are remarkable easy, especially compared to bang backs from the left, which are almost impossible. Crofts can always step in to correct me, but I really think this is intentional. So I basically ended up ignoring the ‘normal’ kick backs altogether

                            I’m really burned out on the Star Wars theme too but it’s still a fun table for me.
                            So cheers Crofts!

                            btw
                            I recorded my second playthrough. It’s quite chaotic and I’m not very good at the table yet but maybe it can help some players having difficulty with the achievement…Good luck!

                              Thanks for the mini 'review' and glad you seemed to enjoy the table It was also nice to watch a video of the table where someone actually uses a bit of skill from time to time

                              Yeah, the Smuggle Run Multiball can be started any time apart from during the Skill Shot.

                              I actually found bang backs were easier to do from the left outlane - so it's not really something which was intentionally designed. Several people have complained the left outlane in particular is too harsh, so it's something we may tweak, as again, it wasn't supposed to be quite so unforgiving.

                                Although I had lots of fun with it, I agree that the left outlane could probably use a nerf with the classic mode in mind
                                Strange that you have less problems with bang backs from the left than from the right though. For me, it really is the exact opposite.

                                I’m still enjoying the table. With the missions beaten, I’m now searching for the best way to score.

                                Thanks for the hard work & the reply
