    On game start I see a beautifully rendered pillar, inviting me to choose a table. I don't have a way of navigating anywhere.

    I think they are pushing a new build up in the next hour (or so) to fix this.

    Heads up from the iOS side of things...

    Some testers actually purchased some Zen Coin stacks, and now that the beta is over they are experiencing a situation where tables show as owned but they can't actually play anything. So I'd advise to not purchase anything with real money until after the beta. Unless you are depositing money in the Skillz app, as that wasn't affected by the beta at all as those funds are used for any Skillz game.

    It's a very nicely rendered pillar, mind.

    FYI, clicking the pillar causes some mild side effects. Tech Support!

    Android doesn't use test flight, so the same build will flick over to production once beta testing is finished. Your entitlement should also transfer over.

    Now the app will not load. The Loading Bar is stuck at beginning.
    Anyone else experiencing the same?

    I take that back - Now loading - though much slower than before.
    But loads to.......The Pillar!

    I've felt really left out of things around here as an Android user. So, I signed up to be a tester as soon as I saw this thread. But... no download link on the Williams app page for me at the Google Play store.

    That's a shame. It's working now too. Just played HSII

    PS. Can you turn off the scores that flash up all over the playfield?

    You can on the iOS build, so I assume you can here as well. Click on the gear icon (upper right), then go into arcade effects. You can choose to turn it off completely, or pick a value that they’ll appear at (100,000...). It used to drive me crazy, but now I like seeing the various points I’m awarded for actions on the table.

    Is there going to be a separate private forum area for the Android beta feedback, like there was for iOS? Or is the beta feedback for Android less "sensitive" since iOS is already released?

    I've got the menus and everything, but I can't unlock anything - keep getting server errors. Ho hum.

    I've had to reinstall the app after it updated. Works like a charm.

    According to the Play Store, it's an Open Beta, so no need for secrecy I guess.

    Got it working. Not sure I like the insta-drain when shooting the force field from the left flipper on AFM, though; especially since nudging uses a swipe in the top of the screen. Some kind of different touch / control scheme options would be nice.

    So, playing AFM this morning, trying to get the 10 star one-ball challenge, several times a flipper didn't respond/flip when I tapped the screen - I am on a Pixel XL, using touch controls.

    At first I wasn't sure it was happening (thought I might have had my finger stray outside the tap zone), but after the third time it happened, I'm pretty sure it was real.

    Every time it happened it caused me to drain, which is frustrating on a one-ball challenge when you are at 8 stars

    EDIT: this just happened again, it seems to be predominantly the right flipper, although it infrequently does the left as well.

    Seems to be Left flipper on HSII. Definitely seems to freeze up on occasions. Also some odd 'sticky flipper' action on Right flipper too

    1. When trying to get the free Ticket pack with 50 tickets for viewing an ad, I get an error:

    Error [0:-10] in function vrtual bol CYAPZGSPurchaseSKUPlayAdProcess::OnWork(double) in src/Game/YAPStoreSKU.cpp at line 384

    2. After having completed the first daily challenge I wanted to play another one with watching an ad. The game brings up the message "Please wait..." - nothing happens after that.

    3. For some reason after a crash the game let me play another challenge. When trying to open the box at the end, the game crashed. This happened as well after the first challenge.

    When I enter into the tutorial I get to point where it shows you how to plunge the ball and then the game crashes.

    Restarting the game and then re entering the tutorial allowed me to proceed to the very end of the tutorial. Game did not crash.
