    To Shift Up, you press the Auto Launch button (B button on Switch). The manual launch (right stick down) is the down shift.

    Also, as mentioned above me "BS" means Bonus Score in video mode. In real pinball, the ball saver feature is only designed to save a freshly launched ball. It's rarely (if ever) given to you as an award like Zen's original tables do.

    The launch button shifts up, the right stick down shifts down. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks! Will you guys work on something to replace that in the future?

    (looking at the task manager seems it goes above 85/90% usage, no saturation problem with ram or ssd)
    I did'nt noticed a particular case when this happens (single ball, multiball ... )
    I saw that on Fish tales (when i came above 500 Millions pts ) and gateway (more then 300 millions points)
    If i hit esc and go back to the menu, nothing change, even the menu is slow.
    I have to leave the game complety and laucnh it again, then all works fine untill the next long game.

    I use 2 screens 1050*1680, dmd on second screen (1280*1024), a jpeg for backglass
    My pincab specs, core quad 9550, 8gb ddr3 ram, gtx 760, ssd 160gb
    I had the same problem before i format it recently (windows 7 to windows 10)
    Changed too a joywarrior controleur for xbox360 controler, same problem.

    thanks for reading
    Same today, just playing 3 players, game slow down unplayable. rebbot the pc, one more try and sams probleme on the 3rd ball turn

    Hi all. Registered here just for this post.

    Bit of a bug report, bit of a rant. Not sure if it's worth its own thread. I got the game on PS4 recently, and have only played FISH TALES so far. A LOT. I have maxed out all the abilities and one wizard ability, working on the second. What I've come across so far sours what is an almost perfect experience. And that sourness is preventing me from shelling out for the Williams pack. I'm on the fence about it.

    1. The 2x scoring wizard power sometimes DOES NOT WORK. This usually begins to happen during a longer session, and once it starts, it carries over to future games. I hold triangle, see the countdown spinner drain time, but events that should double points (like the 4 million fish finder becoming 8 million) give the standard points. It's a handicap to even hope it works at this point, as playing the game holding an extra button down (for no effect) makes taking shots that much harder.

    2. The REWIND wizard power is rage-inducingly STUPID. At this point, it says I should be able to rewind up to 3 seconds by holding the triangle button. Nope! It's about 1.5 seconds tops, then automatically disengages. Took a while to realize it wasn't me letting the button up. And there's this 3 second countdown before play resumes (yes you can hit a button to skip it) but during this 3 second time, why can't I tap triangle some more to fine-tune my backwards progress? Why can't I use all my time in one go if I want to?

    3. The only reason I use REWIND is to undo a drain event. GOOD FREAKING LUCK getting the ball back under control... The rewind feature EXECUTES TOO QUICKLY and the camera SHAKES WILDLY as it is following the ball around. Sorry, I cannot follow what's going on here. It's a crapshoot for me, rewind a bunch, nudge or something when it starts up again, and hope for the best. Why couldn't this rewind be MATRIX-STYLE SLOW MOTION REVERSE?

    4. Another lovely flaw with your REWIND feature is the PADDLES STICK UP and stay there until you press each TWICE. Who tested this? Why it is like this? I have lost more balls than I can count because of the unresponsive paddles when the game resumes.

    5. And I can't even rewind further to fix it when this trips me up because of that BLASTED COOLDOWN TIMER. Nope nope nope. This should behave more like the 2x scoring dealie, just slowly rewind when held, automatically resume when released. (At least, this is how I imagined this wizard power would work like.)

    6. And what's the deal with the unchangeable MULTIBALL CAMERA ANGLE? I use View 7 most of the time. The version of that where the entire playfield is visible would be great for multiball. But no, the game is like "Multiball time! Stand on this stool to continue playing!" Please.

    7. Sometimes the X button doesn't want to launch the ball. Weird. I nudge and it might work again, maybe the right stick does it. Extra aggrivating during timed events.

    8. Why can't I do what I did as a child? GET UP CLOSE AND EXAMINE THE TABLE. You know, before playing. Yeah yeah, there's instructions, but getting close and seeing and reading for yourself adds a whole new dimension to immersion and enjoyment for me.

    I love this game so far. The tournaments make it fun, and each is begging for a specific wizard power. But if those wizard powers cause more frustration than they are worth, sigh... Here's hoping things can improve. I find it hard to believe the physics and attention to detail in the game, yet it has tiny nusainces like these.

    You can! Hold down square and tilt the controller. The feature uses motion control.

    Aliens vs. Predator: PS4. There's a bug that leads to insane scoring when the ball somehow gets stuck in the nest of bumpers. Single player, Classic, 1 ball, 5 minute & Survival leaderboards are now all full of bogus scores accumulated using this bug. Please fix the table & leaderboards a.s.a.p. Zen, it's looking in a sorry state.

    Thanks, Shogun00 !! I loaded the game to check that out, but new frustrations arose:

    I had completed 3 tournaments, placed in each, got rewarded with XP. Ok, says "continue" so I press X on the box. Nothing happens. Gotta hit O then go back to tournaments, then see the next tournament result. Continue does nothing again, hit O, go back for result #3, this time X brings up the tournament menu because that was my last result.

    SERIOUSLY? "Continue" should um... CONTINUE showing results then proceed to tourney menu. None of this backing-out workaround BS. Get it together guys!

    Also, messages like "you placed THE 51TH in the tournament" is wrong in two different ways. O M G

    Oh yeah, sorting tournaments by "limited tries" (the most fun for me when every game counts) showed 3 Fish Tales tournaments with UNlimited tries. AAARRGH

    ...at which point I closed the program. I don't need this.

    Just wait for a little bit after pressing X. There is a delay between uploading and retrieving tournament scores from the leader boards. I don't know why it does it, but it likes to hang a little for some reason.

    Fish Tales, PS4 pro, turning music vol down not working! While in the options menu I can hear how the music vol is changing, but going back to the table it changes nothing. Just a little bug, but since the music is stressfull for me, not so good ;-)

    Edit: Tried the 2nd Williams table and it’s the same. It seems that the music and sound effects are somehow connected, because when I turn down the sound effects, the music also dissapears!?

    Anyone else with this bug?

    I posted this back in May and also e-mailed support who replied and said it would be passed on to the dev team. I haven't heard anything since and the bug is still present.

    When in handheld mode and rotated to portrait, the left joycon cannot control both flippers at once (using the d-pad). The left flipper cancels out the right one. This happens on all tables.

    To recreate: rotate the screen of any table so that the left joycon is at the bottom, attempt to raise both flippers at the same time by using the d-pad buttons.

    This should be taken seriously. There are several guys posting rediculous scores in the trillions on the AvsP table and do so whenever they please posting images to our ps4 community one upping the other, so it's not a fluke and began after the williams update which, in however small way has changed the way other tables play. I can only provide one example, but on the star wars rogue 1 table when you sit and just catch the ball with the right flipper and just bang out bumpers it used to, pre williams tables every few balls spit out a fast one that was a different trajectory and would bounce on your right flipper so you couldnt just camp there all damn day without some risk, however minor and now it just spits out balls straight to the flipper and occassionally one just falls out of the hole so weak and slow it just falls to the left flipper. Something is different that is allowing these guys to catch a ball somehow in the bumpers of the AvsP table and it just sits there spitting out billions of points.

    The game was shut down yesterday for about 10 minutes. We all had internet access and access to sony, but not the game. Was an update put out? What, if so, did it entail?

    Its not a bug, the d-pad on Switch simply is made that way , you cannot press 2 input at the same time on the d-pad for two different action. Its not the best way, but play on the other reverse portrait mode ( but you will neeed manualy to configure the button, there is a mix up with the FX button, and the joystick for nudging, camera moving up )

    Hi,
    There is a bug on Highspeed 2 table in "battle mode" on Nintendo Switch : Sometime, if you lost the ball during a special mode (like redline, supercharged or secret mode), you get a game over and, like in battle mode the balls suppose to be infinite during 3 minutes, the score is set to 0 and you automatically lost the match. It's appends to me several times and it's very frustrating then you got a score very higher than your opponent ! :P

    When did these sneaky little guys add in the option to change the effects button to something else? That'a fantastic. I literally just doubled by best High Speed score on the first try, because vertical mode is where it's at!

    Three weeks now since Williams tables release and still no patch fixing the getaway table glitch. I get it, you wanna fix this and the other glitches related to the williams tables at the same time, but some news regarding a future update and some sort of expected time of release would be nice.

    Bug on Aliens vs Predator table.
    The ball got stuck in between the bumpers on the top, I could have let it bump forever and easily acquire a nice top score.
    Only way to stop it was to tilt the game.
    It happened to me twice on the same game!
    Coincidence or bug?

    Thanks for posting this footage. It's a bug that has led to multiple unscrupulous players with little to no talent or integrity absolutely decimating all the various game mode's leaderboards on PS4. Zen, you now have video proof. Please fix the issue & remove all the fake scores.

    Playing on Nintendo Switch:

    1. Last week in matchup games on "The Getaway" I was getting a ballout before the timer ran out during timed supercharger mode (where every ramp or so is like 5 mil) happened a lot of times.


    2. On Doom table during lockout (red light) when all enemies are defeated and I hit the Power Up Ramp the game closes saying there is an error happened 2 times to me.

    I had a ball being trapped leading to quick high scores bug happen on the walking dead table yesterday. I have no video footage as i was not recording while playing and it happend in match up and time was nearly up (i did not have enough time to enable recording quickly) but the ball got somehow trapped at the the trap door where the zombie usually sticks out. I'm not sure how or in what mode it happend but it was either while the trap door was getting shut (the zombie not showing) and getting big scores because the zombie usually sticking out of the door kept getting hit, i don't think it was the other way around (trap door going from close to open) as i can't see how the ball could get stuck then unless the zombie showing up again had something to do with it

    Did the ball on the playfield score a Super Jackpot (hit the sink hole) before the ball on the left drained? If that was the case, the Super Jackpot ball would have got reset to the captive lane, and you were technically down to 1 ball - which unfortunately was in the process of draining.

    This sounds like something that should be fixed with a rules update. Give a one shot ball saver for a few seconds on scoring a super jackpot.

    i have found another bug, but it's not on any of the tables but inside the ui. I've had it happen 2-3 times already but always forgot to record it so next time i'll record it.

    If you had play lets say 3-4 tournaments and you quit playing until all those tournaments have ended and after a few days you go back to the game and select tournaments it shows you the finished tournament and the you have to press A button on xbox 360 controller to continue. However pressing A or the continue button does not do anything you hear the click from selecting it but nothing happens. What i have to do in this case is go back to the main menu and then select tournaments again then go back to the main menu and repeat this untill all "finished" tournaments are cleared, this is a bit irritating i think it should normally when pressing the A button or continue show the next completed tournament but i have it happen a few times already that it does not do this.

    This is using XBOX 360 gamepad (but mouse / keyboard combo exhibit same problem) using win 10 store version. I did not test on any other platform i own the game (xbox one & steam version) so can not say they exhibit the same problem

    here's the video as promised of the tournament completed bug when having finished 2 or more tournaments. The continue button does not work, it does not go to the next completed tournament nor the usual tournament selection screen and the only solution is to go back to main menu, select tournaments again so the next tournament completed shows up and repeat this steps until you are at the last tournament completed only then the continue button seems to work. This is on the windows 10 store version i have not tested on steam nor on xbox one

    Flippers on Williams tables only are laggy, laggy enough to make the games frustrating and not enjoyable. Is this a bug? All other tables are normal.
