Thread: Pinball FX3 on Xbox One...I don't get it.

  1. #1

    Default Pinball FX3 on Xbox One...I don't get it.

    So I see lots of table packs wanting my money....again, but no free base Pinball FX3 program to download. So...it's kind of hard to import the tables that I have when it doesn't seem that I'm even given an option to dl the main program. It's not listed, I did a search and it's not showing, where is it?

    Yeah, yeah, it just launched....but don't hype up your launch for months in advance and not be ready for it.

    Hi,

    after connect your account ms to zen account, in the front page press x to import your tables.

    Unhappy

    Been on the Xbox one and plenty of tables to purchase. Purchased the Universal Classics™ Pinball table which downloaded but won't start as the main free starter pack option is not showing. Went on the Xbox web site and the option to download the free starter pack is there but when selected to download to the Xbox doesn't download. Another great start date.

    If you managed to 'Get' it from the website have a look to see if it's now in the 'Ready to Install' section in Apps and Games.

    The issue is THERE IS NO FRONT PAGE, as there is NO program to start and link. The main Pinball FX3 program IS NOT listed on the Xbox One. Plenty of tables for people to buy....but no program to start or play for free...so no way to import tables.

    I don't see it even listed on the Xbox website for me. I see Pinball Arcade and Stern Pinball Arcade....maybe they would be fun, but no Pinball FX3.

    This feels alot like the Pinball FX2 start. Now we can look forward to every table added to take weeks to be able to import. Just like old times...

    Hey,

    you might have to search with the exact phrase 'Pinball FX3'.

    Also, does this link work for you? https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/stor...3/9pckbvf3p67h

    Doesn't show anything with a search on Pinball FX3 on the Xbox one and the link does not download. The main free starter pack is not showing anywhere in the Xbox store just the paid for packs.

    I originally searched on the Xbox One store and found nothing. Then I went to the Xbox website and went under games / Xbox One and searched...again nothing. I then went back to the main Xbox webpage and searched and it come up.

    I choose to GET it. I then went to my Xbox One and it showed up in the Ready to Install section. I installed it. Chose to link it and then selected to import tables. It said it found 144 tables (is that correct?). I do have all the Pinball FX 1 & 2 tables but didn't realize it was that many.

    Then the games started popping into the store on different individual table packs and saying they were ready to install. After each one finished I would hit B to back out to Pinball FX3 and it would them pop me back onto another table page to download. A strange way for the game to do it, but it does seem to be importing them.

    As some have the starter pack decided to do a full shutdown of the Xbox one. Restarted and the starter pack is now downloading.

    Yeah the numbers are bugged for some reason. It should say 68 tables. Also thank you for this detailed and step-by-step comment I'm sure it'll help a lot of people!

    Hey Mclovin, good job on the new pfx3!
    A couple of wrinkles:

    All of my tables (42 of them) successfully imported EXCEPT Portal. Is there a known issue with that particular table?

    Also, can you add a ticket into your Xbox backlog to allow user to configure/disable achievements pop up? I had one pop up on a multi ball and covered my flippers.

    Agreed....It boggles my mind that something that obvious that is seen in the first few minutes of play can make it in a program. It's not like it's something you can't notice...the achievement notifications are directly over the flippers.

    Yes, or at least have it pause the game by default while the achievement popup is on the screen

    Heyo,

    Portal should be working, this is the first we hear of it being faulty. If you try again, or close the game etc, check out Pinball FX3 in game manager does it show up?

    The achievement popup is something to consider.

    No, it is something to fix. It was that way with PBFX2 and it was fixed. The real questions is why was it broken again for PBFX3? It's like no one is learning anything here.
