    Default Fish Tales challenge requirements differ between Steam and Switch

    1 ball challenge and survival challenge have different score requirements between the 2 platforms. Is this a bug?

    Funny, sort of posting the exact same thing right now in a different thread. What is different from the PS4 version. Previously, before the update, it used to go 5 mill to 70, but now goes 5 to 7 and increases similarly. The balls now also launch differently than before, but I think this may have been due to the criticism of the just to 70 and also some recent posts regarding the balls shooting directly between the flippers in classic mode.

    Ya, just noticed no difference on the switch. Jumps from 5 million to 70 like it used to on PS4 before the update.

    Thanks for checking. I guess they will update it on the Switch then

    I forgot to check the switch to see if they got the updates for the new games and if you have the new game featured in the news block, but will do that. Seems like the update on fishtales was hidden in with either of those updates.

    Strange the switch got the update that shows new games coming and also has the announcement featured in the news block, but not sure if those were both added in one update. I just know the ps4 got two updates. Are you saying that on steam the fishtales acts as I posted above with it going from 5mill to 7 mill and not 5 to 70?

    Yup. It's super easy to do on Steam compared to Switch

    I don't know if it's just me or if they changed the ball or flipper physics, but I find it very hard to flipper pass now like I used to be able to do easily.

    Zen responded a few times to me yesterday on Discord about a video I uploaded to show that the Multiball was broken in the Classic Arcade but they very obviously ignored my question (which I asked three times in the end) as to if it was updated or not. I don't know what their reasons were, but maybe the update is only supposed to go out with the release of the tables or something. Anyway... I'll wait for news from them on the update, before I try the table again.

    Not sure why they had to mess with AFM scoring. It's now soooooo much harder to achieve ruler of the universe during survival mode than previously. So, if you didn't already have a score on the leaderboards that was in the top 10 you can pretty much scratch that goodbye cause now its just way harder and for what reason? I mean, I read all the threads and don't recall a single person complaining. I have been complaining about a lot of things that would easily be fixed yet never are. You think they would fix the double scoring that can be achieved in black rose with the push of a single button, but NOOOOOOOOOO they needed to adjust the scoring in my favorite table. Who woulda guessed.

    Zen confirmed some fixes were made and that some more will be made on the 29th after the release of the Universal Monsters pack. They will also make a list of fixes available shortly after.

    Since you have Zens ear tell them to put AFM back the way it was before they release the updated patch.

    I don't have their ear ;-) . It is just easier to have a chance to chat with them on the Pinball FX3 Discord.

    Hi guys!

    The Switch patch might not have arrived yet to the released version of the game. This fix should be universal once the Monster Pack releases on all platforms.

    Thanks for the patience on this, I know it was like this for a long time.

    How about some notes. So far I have only noticed the aforementioned fishtales tweeks as well as the toned down scores in AFM, but would have assumed after all of this time that the double scoring bug in black rose classic mode and the tiger saw disappearing ball that reappears in the launch lane exploit would have been fixed, but neither were. I do not play whitewater, but was told the ball jumping out of the ramp was fixed as well.

    All of the above bugs were posted within days of release to the bugs thread.
