    Ahhhh!!!! It doesn't show the ball!! The ball is a ghost with its shadow!

    How can I report the bug (MacBook late 2006 with GMA 950 - OS X Lion 10.74)? The game IS actually playable! The framerate is not that bad (maybe 15-20 fps or less. but it works!).

    I am so excited about this. OSX is definitely my preferred platform because I take my mpb everywhere. But unfortunately I will have tables on various platforms (ps3, iOS, OSX). I am not sure what to do. I don't suppose there will be cross-platform support for iOS and OSX like there is with ps3 and vita? I haven't seen anything like that with other apps in the app store. I also haven't heard anything like that being implemented in ios6 or mountain lion. I guess I will probably just break down and buy for all 3 platforms. I have had the same problem with pinball arcade. Just take my money.

    I guess this also means that the chances of Castlestorm on OSX is pretty good. Cool.

The new avengers pack is the only dlc available but it is not being sold as a pack. You can buy each table individually at a slight premium of $2.99 for each table. I don't see an option to buy the tables as a pack. I played a really quick game of sorcerer's lair. It plays great but could use some higher res graphics. Checked the options and there is something strange for the controls. There is a slow motion key that slows everything down. I am not sure I like this feature because it makes aimed shots very easy. I guess I wouldn't mind if this disabled leaderboards, but there are no leaderboards?! Will leaderboards be included later? I really hope so. Also, it has local hot seat multiplayer but no online multiplayer that was mentioned for zp 2 on the ps3. Zp2 for the Mac looks like a great start, but it needs a little love. Inclusion of leaderboards should be #1 on the to do list.
    Thanks! Leaderboards are definitely something we'll add later as that option becomes available, Game Center integration isn't an option on Mac yet. This is definitely not final, as we do have more tables, features planned for it.

    No Mac codes at this point, I'm not even sure if I can get any. If we do get some, I'll send you a friendly note

    There will be more updates to the game very soon including more DLC. Consider this a 'soft launch' with all the best still to come.

    We certainly welcome all of your feedback!

    Thanks

    Well i found it by accident. Just narrowed my google search to 24 hours to track progress on the other formats.

    I agree with the previous posters comment regarding the quality of the graphics... they are very good as is, but could do with being a little higher - i can see rough edges in quite a few places however i'm using a 15" Macbook Pro so it's obviously bigger than an iPad.

    Indeed i'm also curious why no one seems to be aware of it, even some Zen insiders(?)... i'm quite disappointed by this, especially as so many of you folks have been waiting patiently for so long (haven't we all lol)

    The only problem that i have with all of these Downloadable tables, is that i have purchased the Vengeance pack on Xbox 360, but wish i hadn't bothered as most of my purchases are on PS3, and i'm not paying for it again... and it looks like the same is going to happen on Mac as well... i don't wanna have to pay for EVERY platform that i own... so won't be doing it

    Glad to help though guys Enjoy

    Nothing wrong with the way Sony's submission works, it just takes longer. If that means a better product for us, that is fine by me

    I knew about it, I just forgot that Apple has pretty short submission times (if it gets certified the first time through).

Absolutely no news from zen about the release of Zen Pinball 2 on a brand new platform with the avengers pack. Many thanks to motormusic. I would have never known about this. This is my preferred platform too. I could have saved some money. Though, zp2 seems to require OSX Lion. I downgraded from lion because it was causing huge problems with my wifi adapter. I assume this will be compatible with mountain lion 10.8 that is going to be released in the next week or two. I will skip lion and get mountain lion and download this. I am shocked that there has been no announcements about this. Barbie, can we at least get a Mac forum please?

    I had no idea this was happening this soon, it was in submission and it looks like it passed! I don't have a Mac though, so I can't even enjoy this, but please, let us know what you think! I will set up a Mac forum today and move this thread over to it
