    Default Now that ZP2 is done...

    will we see Zen focusing on attention on ZP3D DLC???

    (After seeing and playing the PvZ for Vita, I can't imagine what lies ahead for 3DS!)

    First of all... it's not done. It's "done" in that it's live, but we'll be working on fixing issues for a bit.

    Second. DLC is closer than you might think. Patience is a virtue

    While I definately would like some new table on 3DS I'd be rather upset if Zen released anything new before fixing Fantastic Four. I hope that's what they plan to do. It would make them look pretty bad as a company if they release new stuff for people to spend their money on before fixing what they've already been paid for. I'm faithful that they will fix it before then. If they didn't a lot of people would be reluctant to pay for future stuff that they'd know by then may not work and if it didn't wouldn't be fixed. That kind of business gets you on Angie's bad list.
    Barbie, any news on a patch?

    Yeah I would like a fix as well. I really want to play that table again but am hesitant to play and get a good score only for the glitch to happen and lose what could be hours of work. Lets hope it will get patched as I think we will all have to redownload both marvel and Zen to allow the dlc to work!

    Default MP3D Patch Details

    Hey guys, here are some details on the new patch for Marvel Pinball 3D:


    - Fixed general game bugs
    - Red Skull multiball bug fixed on Captain America
    - Ball stick bug fixed on Iron Man
    - The Baxter Building camera issued fixed on Fantastic Four
    - Wormhole bug fixed on Fantastic Four


    This is currently live in Europe, and will come to North America soon. Some users may lose the score from their last played game. We are very sorry for this inconvenience!

    I just got the wormhole twice with no problem, so that's promising. I know it doesn't guarantee it's fixed, but with the changelog Barbie gave us, I'd call that confirmed. Thanks so much Zen Studios! It's great to know that you really do care about providing a good quality service for the 3DS. Please keep up the good work, I really appreciate it.
    Thanks!



    EDIT: Can I just ask what the Red Skull Multiball bug was? I don't think I ever encountered that one.

    Usually Nintendo is pretty good about syncing updates between NA & EU, so hopefully within the next couple of days. I will let you know if I hear otherwise

    Question What does Marvel Pinball 3D's latest update do?

    I just want to know what it's for, is it for bug fixes or to support later dlc? If bug fixes, what did it fix?

    I can't remember what the red skull bug was, I'd have to ask.

    No DLC just yet, we'd announce it first!

    Yeah I'd like to know the Red Skull one as well. I've spammed the crap out of it and still haven't seen it! The only problem I've seen was I've started a mission right as the multiball was also started.

    dot matrix bug: if you move before the dot-matrix finishes its animations, the shot wont count

    I'm not sure, that might be part of the "general game bugs" but we'll see.

    Does this update also change the game to allow dlc! In other words an option for it or will we have to redownload the whole game again when dlc does come out?

    I doubt you'll have to redownload the whole game again. Not sure how it's going to work, but we'll see soon enough

    Well, the update doesn't seem to add any menu option for anything like that, so I guess there will have to be some sort of update when the DLC becomes available. Whether that means redownloading the whole game or just a small download to modify the game I don't know.

    Nope. Like I said before, this is just a bug fix. No new DLC yet.

    LOL! Maybe, Shogun but Nintendo is actually more careful and supportive on all games and devs! They like it perfect, thats why theres rarely ever a glitch or bug on Nintendo games!

    Will we be seeing a physics update for ZP3D and MP3D? or are they both running on their own set of PHYSICS? Is it using FX2 or exclusive 3DS physics is my question basically?

    THANKS!

    The physics engine is the same across all platforms now. The only one that was outdated was ZP1 for the PS3.

    I'm just recalling from what I read on these boards.

    IIRC, Solitude said that all of the platforms are now running on the FX2 physics engine.

    The only difference that I can tell between the PS3 versions of Zen Pinball 2 and Marvel Pinball (which both run on the FX2 engine) is the collision detection. On Marvel Pinball, it was harder to hit some of the ramps, while ZP2 is much easier to hit them.

    The dlc release will be a four pack or a single table?

    I thought I'd read something different somewhere on this forum. I thought there was the ZP physics from the first PS3 game, then ZP3D had it's own, slightly different physics engine, followed by ZP2, which has a slightly different engine again. Or am I making that up? It's entirely possible that's what I'm doing.

    You might have! There are certain things that need to be customized for each platform (the Vita version of ZP2 is slightly different from the PS3 version), but the core physics engine should be the same across the board (sans ZP1 on the PS3).

    Hey guys I was wondering who runs the server for Zen Pinball, FX2,etc? Does ZEN keep the network going or does publishers like Sony,Nintendo,Microsoft,Apple, and all keep it up on their own Network? Thanks!

    Just wondering BTW!

    I'm not sure about the others, but Sony leaves it up to the developers to maintain their own servers.

    [QUOTE=shogun00;34221]I'm not sure about the others,

    I would guess it'd be similar too. Isn't it like $1000 a year just to keep the server clean and running or something? LOL I dont know!

    Maybe, but then again maybe not. If I remember correctly, Microsoft maintains everything for Xbox Live. That's why it's a paid service. I'm not sure that goes for the leader boards though or not.

    As for maintaining the servers, the price varies. However, keeping these forums running also costs quite a bit of money too.

    The physics are essentially the same, we do have to tweak things on each table when we release on different platforms. These tweaks are usually graphics related, not physics related.

    We do adjust the physics somewhat to account for different levels of CPU power. But we base those adjustments on our latest physics engine.

    I'll just be glad to finally not have to panic about eShop cash....

    See I keep trying to make certain I have more than enough set aside for the day DLC becomes available (for I shall gorge myself like a dog on an all meat buffet) and I get really nervous whenever it gets down to a certain point and I think, "Well, time to go put more cash on the eShop in case of...." and around that point I usually break down in heaving sobs.

    ANYHOO, Plants vs Zombies Pinball looks fantastic and I look forward to exhausting your supply of DLC in a single day.

    Yeah, I figured that would be the right answer since it needs to fit with 3DS's power and stuff.

    Of course. You don't want to almost have every copy.
