  • Update suggestions to reinvigorate the community

    First of all I realize or speculate that you are reinventing Pinball FX3 for the new systems, to be released soon. Please incorporate the following and update the current systems at the same time.

    1. Make a new icon that displays on your menu screen that shows if you have wizard moded the table. A badge with a w or wand like thing.
    2. LCD light mods and cabinet mods that your team give away for special events like Christmas so your table is decked out with blinking lights and background has a tree and similar mods for other holidays of other countries.
    3. Leaderboards should have regional flags and date when score was achieved and a complete number of players. I get it, you only want to display the top 100, but if you're placing number 50, you're not truly number 50 out of 100, that number is possibly 10's of thousands and you're really just number 50 out of the top 100 out of ????? number of actual players. I want to know what that number is.
    4. Winning a Zen tournament is a prestigious thing. These tournaments are regularly played by hundreds of the worlds best. Winning a Zen tournament should give you a distinctive badge or background that is only awarded to the winner to distinguish you as that.
    5. Clean up the scoreboards. Implement something that bans ip's. Track the time it takes to make the score. If it takes jowpinball 2 hours and it takes some new name 18 minutes to beat him then something is off. They are all on computer, the cheaters that is. Figure out how you can protect your ip and make it accessible to those who do not cheat, then scrub the leaderboards completely. Give us something to do. If you're only going to release a few titles many months apart and this is the new idea, give us something to do, to keep us interested. If your intention is to now, nail the new scoreboard and then release other bally/midway titles with the older scoreboards at a regular interval then cool...................add spaceinvader I want it badly.
    Accomplishments in real life

    1. Rolled a star wars played over 99 levels and rolled it back to level 1.
    2. Rolled Nintendo punch out, several times, same quarter.
    3. Played an entire game of dragons lair and completed it and won while blindfolded.

    Thank you very much for the suggestions, I could imagine all these things in the game, which could improve the quality of course. (I noted them to my request list!) Space Invader is a really popular request also one of my favorites from the older tables, I hope we can make it happen one day!
