    Default Thanks Zen for the Switch update!!

    Just played SoZ in handheld mode and it looks and plays brilliant!! Thanks for taking the time to make things right as it was well worth the wait! Now handheld is every bit as good as docked!!

    Hi Spoony, yes it's me. The reports of my death were greatly exaggerated. It was the downfall of Miiverse that may have made that seem true.

    I figured I'd poke my head in here to see what folks were saying about the update while it was downloading to my system. 'Nothing' was the answer until you started this thread. I still haven't had a chance to play it, but will soon.

    Meanwhile, I noticed the #hynagang is still competing. I'll keep an eye on that and jump back into the comp!

    Thanks guys!

    There seem to be a few framerate hickups when playing docked now however.
    Some tables are worse than others, but Ive seen it atleast a few times on almost every table. Not game-breaking by any means, but its nagging. Perhaps Im nagging

    Anyway, just for headsup.

    Seems to me that it's the online That's causing it. When I see someone come online I notice sometimes that happens. It's brief but can be bad at the wrong time. I also think when someone on the network posts a new score it causes it to happen. It feel just like when it happened on the Wii U. If you turn on Airplane mode all those hiccups go away so that's why I believe what I do.

    On a related note, I noticed that the loading screen after finishing a table seems to be online-related as well. In airplane mode there is no loading screens at all between ending a game and starting a new one on the same table. So I assume the game uploads your score somewhere after ending a table and before your actual scorecard appears.

    I wonder if it would be possible to make this part load lazily, meaning you get to see the scorecard immediately while the score is being uploaded in the background. As soon as that finishes, your rank pops up on the score card. This is a small issue, but I feel any avoidable loading screen is just making me wait unnecessarily. This might be more relevant for pro players, but when I'm just quickly trying to get more stars on a 1Ball challenge I don't really need to know if I'm rank #9563 or #9587 after each attempt.

    Yeah I noticed that too when I was playing offline. Load times are basically non existent. I've noticed in the past they even mess up a lot of things for the Wii U. I'm guessing Zen is still using the same set up as always because the problems seem to still exist.

    Hey Wolfie & Tech101!
    Thank you for reporting this issue! I informed our team regarding the nagging.

    Hey BlueSteel! Yes, in the game this is deliberate, that's how it works. However I will inform my colleagues about your remarks. Thanks a lot!
