    Default Glitch in spiderman

    First it no longer tells you when you win an extra ball and today I was playing and drained two goblin pumkins and it said Im not going down that easy and turned one of them into an actual ball and since spiderman has no multiball this is quite interesting.

    Also, extra ball light on playfield continues to blink even though you are not on an extra ball or have a chance to get one.

    It would be nice if the table acknowledged that you actually won an extra ball. As far as the the pumpkin ball turning into an actual ball. I kind of thought of it as an easter egg, but seriously, because it wasnt detrimental, but, I never know If I got an extra ball, because it no longer says anything, and it kind of sucks to not know.

    You guys are playing 3 ball single player, right? In the Challenges, you get extra scores for extra balls. I mentioned this just to be sure.

    I've got a table glitches bug going on, this will make a nice addition, thanks.

    Ok, so I played it again and made a video and while doing it realized it actually plays an upbeat tempo for about 1 1/2 seconds that I now am able to recognize as being alerted that I won an extra ball, but seriously, almost every other table is so much less subtle with someone saying, "Extra Ball!!" No big, now that I can realize when I have been awarded one I dont need to post a video of me making lots of mistakes and showing I pretty much just grind the same part of the table over and over for massive points.

    Glad to hear it sorted itself out On some tables the feedback can be really subtle that is the designer's choice to make. About that strange multiball you posted earlier: does it happen a lot? What happened exactly?

    Thanks for the report!

    That is a real glitch. I dont know how it occured, but it was a goblin ball and it somehow went into my shoot and said something to the effect of Im not going down that easily and it just turned into a real ball. I wish i could tell you, I wish I had videod it, I wish I could tell you I used it to to my benefit, but that table is so small and not a good table for multiball and I drained it 30 seconds later, but it never seemed like anything other than an extra multiball.

    I wouldnt even mess with it. Its kind of a cool easter egg. Its not detrimental in any way.

    Seriously, we need you to fix matchup and tournaments. Award people for trying to post a billion points and not just wanting us to post scores that can win. 25 points if I win by a billion? Seriously? There is no reason to try and do that. Just eek out a number that you think will win. Cause no matter what you only get 25 points. Fix it so it awards those willing to dominate. Dont worry about the glitch in spiderman. I have played it hundreds of times and never saw this and thought it amazing.

    Also, work on your connectivity. I have a horrible internet connection and often Im in the middle of a game and lose connectivity and even though I pause and get connectivity back to psn after minutes of being connected my scores still do not upload. I hate it. Im talking I have had scores in the billions that I wasted hours playing and even though it says Im connected to psn still doesnt work. Work on that. And how about giving me a notification when Im not connected? You used to. Do it again, that would be nice.

    Sorry, not trying to be an @sshole, but just spent a good two hours on the darth vader table to get a billion points while the guy I was playing only had 12 million on a one ball challenge only to have it not upload.

    Yo man, a person who plays our game a lot, and has good suggestions and remarks is never considered an a-something!

    I've been informed that scores you get offline are eventually synced up when you get a connection. Did it show up after?

    I'll admit that my memory may be faulty and I certainly have no proof, but it vaguely rings a bell, as in I think I encountered this at least once while playing Spiderman on Zen Pinball 2 - getting a free 'multi-ball' out of a saved pumpkin. If that's possible.

    I absolutely have to ask, out of curiosity: would you say that's the same for ZP2 on Vita? 'Cos I can get you screenshots of a local highscore I got on there while on the London Underground (of all improbable circumstances) that exceeds my network highscore by a comfortable margin.

    I love zen pinball and have forever. Even been part of this forum since its inception years ago. Just dont remember my password and always have to change my name, but been here for every build and most new releases. No, tournament games are not like offline games. My scores never eventually at some point post. Not ever. But, I always take a pic of them if you want to see.

    playing the darth vader table in tournaments, one ball challenge and getting to 10x which normally would award an extra ball gives you no point bonus whatsoever.

    Ah yes I may have referenced a different thing. The tournament scores are not posting to your all-time high score at this time, that is true. We are considering the possibility of this change.

    The Vita should work like this as well, you post a score offline ->it should upload the next time you go online.

    Im trying to understand why not. Is it just an issue sorting out the various leaderboards? It seems obvious to me that if your in a tournament and it has no wizard powers that if you beat your previous classic whether that score be in a tournament or offline the new tournament score should be posted above your old classic score and so on for other tournaments that allow wizard powers to their respective leaderboards. I dont get why it is an issue or why it was not implemented. I certainly dont think you guys are lazy, but this seems a oversite that was obvious.

    OK, nearly that simple - I had to register a new score on the table in question while online - and it finally updated. Ta.
