    Default iPad 3 bug on Thor table

    I just got the new iPad and the performance and graphics boost is great. I didn't realize how much lag I was playing with on the iPad 1 until I played with the iPad 3. As someone else mentioned, there needs to be an update to the dmd and user interface buttons because they are so small.

    I have been playing the Thor table and have not been able to activate the hatch on the serpent lane (around 30 attempts). The x button is really small so I'm not sure I'm hitting it dead on, though I have activated the lightening strike just fine. So I'm thinking it is more likely a bug. The x button also pops up very late in the pinball's travel through the ramp. The ball reaches very close to the hatch before the button even pops up. Anyone else on an iPad 3 having similar difficulties activating the serpent ramp hatch?

    Angry Thor Serpent Ramp Hatch won't open - Same problem on iPad 2

    I'm having the same problem. I play Thor a lot but hadn't since Fantastic Four was released until today. I can confirm the hatch will not open as it should. I can only assume this bug was somehow created with the last update. Please sort this out as it makes the table unplayable.

    I don't expect to wait several months for this to be rectified as I'm sure you're still selling the Thor table, and in its current state it cannot be played properly.

    An update on here would be appreciated so we at least know you're looking into it. Until then, I can no longer play my favourite Zen table.

    I wouldn't say it makes the game unplayable, but it makes a couple of the missions much more difficult. The first Ymir mission and the second Destroyer mission are definitely more difficult as the Ymir mini loop and SYA combo shot are not accessible via the hatch. Also the Ymir loop is easier to hit from the hatch compared to when it gets ejected from the URU sinkhole. It's frustrating but the missions are still beatable.

    Yes I agree. Maybe 'unplayable' was the wrong word to use. However, I use the serpent & lightning ramps a lot to score big points so it just becomes frustrating to play when that option isn't available.

    It's ok though. I've found a new love for Captain America (not in that way!) and am happy playing that and Fantastic Four for the time being. I just hope Thor can be fixed quickly and we don't have to wait months.

    Default When will the fix be released?

    Just wondered what the team thought of this bug? I'm assuming it is still for sale but also broken. Any update on when we will have it fixed? It's annoying having had a perfectly working table for so long only to have it broken with the latest update.

    No ETA on this fix that I am aware of yet, but I will let you know as soon as I hear differently!

    I see the Avengers table is due out soon which is great news. Can you confirm the Thor table will get an update to fix the problem created with the last update?

    Really disappointed that my favourite table was working 100% perfectly until your last update which broke the lightning ramp. No update since, no reason why you broke it, no explanation other than ' thanks we're looking at it'. I'm no expert but if it worked before and doesnt now, then just roll it back to the previous version! Just ignoring the problem isn't going to make it go away. And to still keep that table on sale is a joke to be honest, knowing full well it doesnt work properly.

    What are you doing about it? And please don't tell me the team are looking at it. They've had months to do that and it should have been fixed!

    I can't give you details on the patch/update until it goes live, so you're just going to have to wait a bit longer

    Then I guess it's fingers, toes and anything else I can find crossed!

    Any idea when it's due for release?

    Generally once it's showing up in-app as "coming soon" it's about a week away

    Those are some snarky comments. Cool that Avengers is coming to the iOS! My 2nd favorite of the avengers pack behind FI. I really wish Zen would release table packs for iOS but that may be wishful thinking. Need to hire more people for ports! And I hope the sizing issues for the DMD and GUI buttons for the retina display iPad (iPad 3, new iPad or whatever you call it) are being included with the update.

    Hey Barbie, any news in regards to the Mac platform? If you have no news, no need to reply. I know solitude said it was a "soft" launch and it sneaked into the app store like a thief in the night. A "hard" launch (?) with some leaderboards now that Game Center is on Mountain Lion would be nice.

    We are working on more tables, but no ETA right now. It's definitely a work in progress as you can tell
