    Default Freeze PS4 / Pro-Score / World War Hulk Bug

    I have a few questions, which I couldn't find on the forum, so here goes:

    * Once every while (about every hour), the screen will freeze for about one second, while the music continues playing. I this a known bug?
    * I noticed some people have Pro-Scores of 70k+, while there are only 66 tables available. How's this done?
    * I encoutered this bug in WW Hulk on the WIiU as well: When the multiball starts, the screen isn't ready yet and one of the balls will plunge straight away. Shouldn't this bug have been solved by now?

    I a playing this game on an old-model PS4.

    Best Regards,

    TFH

    Sorry for the delayed response, I wanted to discuss these with the Zen Pinball team lead. The freezing and the pro score issues are currently being looked into and they'll take another look at the Hulk table issue as well. Thanks for the reports!

    Additional information: I replicated the issue yesterday. It mostly happens when you get the Manhatten side mission for the 2nd time. This will me a multiball version with 2 balls, but it's impossible to keep the 2nd ball into play (it drains out-of-screen), ending the mission instantly.

    To make the freeze issue more clear, I have made a capture of it happening:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfwU4V-QNSU

    You can see it happening at 14:52... The image freezes for a second, but the music keeps on going. This will happen once in a while. Maybe twice on an evening. And this only happens in ZP2. I don't have this issue in any other game.
    As for the sound issue in Doom. I haven't had it again, so I guess I was un the Lazarus Labs mode, which doesn't have any music

    I just experienced the freeze issue on Doom a few days ago.

    Anyway, this is a leaderboard issue and we ran into this problem before on the PS3 version.

    The easiest workaround is to put your PS4 into offline mode when you start playing the game and put it back to online mode, when you lose your last ball. This way you won't experience the hiccup and are still able to upload your score to the leaderboads.

    Hi Shogun00,

    Thanks for the work-arround But since I am not that good a player, I will be spending quite some time switching the wired network on & off. I'd rather see that ZEN solves this issue. Also glad to hear I am not the only one with this issue...

    That proscore thing where the leaders have impossible score has been present for ages. I remember mentioning on here it when I first got my PS4. I think if they haven't been able to fix it by now it must just be unfixable for some reason.
