    Default 2-controllers 1-table

    My stepdad (Neonfist) and I play Pinball FX3 often, and wonder if a co-op table could be made. As one of us is watching the other play, for as long as a 2 billion score on sorcerers lair.

    I wonder if split-screen could work out. Hot-seat doesn't solve the 1 of 2 players inactivity problem.

    It's now called pinball fx3, but was previously zen pinball then later zen pinball 2. In the original version of the game zen pinball, split screen was included, and then later removed in zen pinball 2. I have no idea as to why, but ever since users have been requesting they put it back in and as of yet little has ever been said other than by forum mods, who are not devs and generally just state how that would be cool.

    It was removed because the feature caused major slowdowns with the later tables. Having two games running simultaneously puts a major strain on the processor.

    Aha. With the PC version, that shouldn't be an issue. However, on the PS5, it should be very much possible, I look forward to it.

    Unfortunately, I doubt they will bother bringing it back. Zen likes to keep things consistent across the platforms.

    What about android? The future platform of pinball fx. With some exaggeration, it's cringeworthy. Therefor I hope they do streamline it completely. At times of PS5, split-screen would be doable across the board, don't you think?
