    Default Sorcerer's Lair - "Bones" Game Mode 'Partially' Broken on Xbox One

    On the off chance that Zen Studios is unaware of this problem AND willing to correct it I would like to point out that the "Bones" mode is 'partially' broken on the xbox one version of the game.

    As you know the "bones" game mode is a timed mode which requires the player to hit the bumpers and/or spinners a sufficient amount before the timer expires to successfully complete. It is much easier to hit the spinners than the bumpers on this table.

    I say that the mode is 'partially' broken because hitting the bumpers will affect progress but hitting the spinners has no effect. Accordingly, it is still possible to complete the mode by only hitting the bumpers but it is EXTREMELY difficult to do so.

    I am not simply complaining that the mode is too hard. I am complaining that the mode is not operating as it should - both bumpers and spinners should affect progress.

    I don't know if anyone there is willing to update the game and correct this but I am certain that I am not the only one who would appreciate it. Even if only more time was given on the timer to provide a reasonable balance, it would be acceptable.

    Cheers,

    BKLortz

    P.S. Love your games

    There is a problem with the spinner spin tracking in some of the older versions, but it will work like charm in PFX3!
    Thanks for the report!

    Default What are the chances of a fix?

    Thanks for the quick response!

    Can you tell me if there is any chance that an update to the xbox one sorcerer's lair will be issued to fix the problem? Even if the spinner is tracking is not corrected, increasing the time allowed could strike a reasonable balance.

    The reason I care so much is because I am really into getting achievements on the xbox and there is a significant ('Perfection' 200GS) achievement which requires completing the 'bones' mode (in addition to all the other modes). I can reasonably do everything else but I cannot get 'bones' done. In one notable game, I rolled over 'midnight' three times, giving me 4 opportunities to complete 'bones' with no luck. All the other modes I completed the first try. Very frustrating.

    Please just let me know if I should hope for an update to the xbox one table or not.

    Either way, thanks for listening.
