    Default There should be a boss practice mode for furture updates! For Marvel of course.

    I was thinking tonight why isn't there a boss practice option for marvel?! It would be a great practice tool to help with our scores. Of course I'm mainly thinking of it for Iron Man more then anything. Zen could also include a practice option for all of the missions. Most are fairly easy but some can take quite a bit of practice to get down!

    Ha ha very funny! :-P

    However I still don't see why they couldn't include a mode for it. After all even Zen would admit they are different from actually real world tables. Much more arcadey.

    Yeah, I can't imagine a boss for the Marvel tables. Unless you consider Ultimo as one LOL. If they did do a boss, it wouldn't be mainly skill like RPG games but merely luck to keep the ball in.

    They already have one, it's called the Operator's Menu. Just set the table to "easy" and set the ball count to the max (I believe it's 9). This is a good way for you to practice getting up to Ultimo and defeating him.

    Once you have gotten used to defeating him on a easier setting, then select "factory reset" in the operator's menu and all of the settings will go back to the default.

    I think I already consider Ultimo a boss, so having a boss for others tables would be extra hard.

    All four of the tables have what you would consider a boss. Do you ever check the table instructions? Blade has Dracula. Iron Man has ultimo. Fantastic Four has Galactus and the captian American table has one final clash with the Red skull. All can only be reached after completing all of the mission. Cap has a couple more things you need to do.

    @Shogun That good and all but I would like to start at the boss of the table. It kinda defeats the purpose of this topic to have to do all the missions just to face him. If you fail you have to work your way there all over again. I can complete all the missions without to much of a problem. The problem is getting there with all three balls!

    why not work your way up to the boss, exit the game when it starts (so it saves your game), backup the SD card to the computer and practice until you lose your ball, then put the backup copy of the game back on the SD card so you start back at the start of the boss?

    I completely understand your frustration Tech because I've been on the same situation with Ultimo.

    Basically the idea of pinball is that you show your skills and complete each mission and gain as many points as you can. The wizard mode just tells you how good you really are with the table. The wizard mode is hard and difficult to reach on several real tables and this is tradition in pinball! Personally, I see no reasons to change this.

    Iron Man is a table that teaches you to play. Every shot is a risk and you have to find safe ways for each shot. For ramps and targets, reversed shots work nearly every time for me.

    The tables are set up so that merely seeing the boss at all is a huge reward. Letting us play it at will would cheapen it.
