Also Zen has a tournament going for Swords of Fury for free Pinball Coins but it's only for Steam. Lame. Us console players are always left out!
I'd like it to show Favorites by default--or maybe better, just remember the setting you had it on last time, ya know?I thought I heard that in the next patch your owned tables tab would show up by default on each load of the game but that isn't the case. Still have to scroll down and select it each time, even in the same session if you tab away.
The plunger grinding soundOh, so Whirlwind is out now on PSN actually ().
Anyway, I was just playing Hurricane on PS4 (1.05 or whatever it was, before today's 1.06) and noticed two things:
- The "4x" bonus light is always flickering (unless you actually have a 4x bonus, in which case it's solid, as it should be; most of the rest of the time though it should be off, instead of flickering constantly)
- If you pull the plunger all the way and hold it, just as a new ball comes up, the game makes a short, loud grinding sound
Well, I'm just reporting potential bugs. Ultimately Zen would be determining priority.Plunger grinding is fairly annoying but not big of an issue.
4x flickering is your Extra Ball location.
(Don't forget that the bonus x's number that's flashing is what you need to light the extra ball. On every game I've seen, it starts on the 3x, and after you get that goes to 6x. After 6x, it doesn't light anymore. So off the Dummy, you can get 2 extra balls. Don't forget that when extra ball is lit, the flippers change the lane the extra ball is in, so shoot a ramp and move the extra ball to the return lane where the ball will go.)
Extra Balls may be obtained from Mystery Awards, or Dunking the Dummy to achieve the flashing Multiplier value. Once available, an Extra Ball lamp becomes list at the inlanes and outlanes, and its position can be altered with the flippers. Simply roll over the lamp to collect the Extra Ball.
- Extra Balls disabled
- Replays disabled (no score or Extra Ball awarded)
Please note that older machines, such as commonly used in the Classics Divisions, may have different settings, such as allowable extra balls, five-ball play, or a Tilt penalty of “entire game” rather than “current ball”.
In order to best suit tournament play, certain machines may be subject to specific settings or rules adjustments, at the discretion of Tournament Officials. These adjustments will be made before tournament play begins, and will be documented if possible. The intent is to eliminate features which can be abused by skilled players, or which arbitrarily extend play time to a degree that would hinder the smooth progress of the tournament.
^ Fixed in 1.07. : )
Just figured out another bug In the PS4 version:
1) Start a game of Monster Bash, Pro mode
2) Set Williams Pinball Attract Mode to OFF
3) End the game by draining all balls
4) During the Match sequence, start mashing the X button, and keep mashing until you get back to the lounge/cabinet view
==> This screen has a menu in the lower right corner showing "X Play," along with other controls, but pressing X here now does nothing.
I have to press a different button, like /\ or , then Circle button back to that menu before X will start a new game.
Thanks for the suggestions. : ) Setting Vsync or limiting FPS to 60 through the Nvidia Control Panel, or with RTSS, still add significant input delay in PBFX--possibly slightly less than the in-game setting, but still pretty bad.While they seem to have made enormous improvements with regards to PC optimizations in the last update, I'm sure there are still quite a few issues that need more attention. As you have noticed, the in-game vertical sync setting wreaks havoc on the latency. Maybe the video card settings will work better in your situation to enable vertical sync. If the laptop is not able to keep up with 120 fps consistently, and there is no g-sync or freeSync option with the monitor/screen, your probably going to experience a lot of tearing with a pinball game. Well, this pinball game in its current state.
Have you tried using 72 or 60 FPS in-game refresh lock with the in-game vertical sync unchecked? Best latency seems to be limiting max frames per second in the game and disabling any vertical sync. But if the PC struggles to keep up with the max FPS settings used and your can't make use of G-sync/FreeSync, it might be an unplayable, ugly mess.
