    Game is unplayable on my Galaxy S8+ I installed/uninstalled the beta a few times now but always the same problem. I start the app and get the Williams Pinball loading screen, the progress bar fully goes through the loading and then the organge bar disappears and I hear background music but the loading message remains.

    With today's update I got a new menu item "League game", but neither my level, my tickets, my Zen coins are loaded. When trying to do the daily challenge, I get an interal error, trying to play Arcade I get the message I need to go online, league game just give a message box "please wait". Seems like the connection to Zen Servers doesn't work.

    That's a beta, how it should be - not like the PC beta, where everything was already running way too smooth for a beta

    That reminds me of the time someone whined and *****ed that they felt they got an Alpha build because it was so broken, instead of being grateful that they got to test out the product before others. Apparently it was just TOO broken. WHAAAH!

    Galaxy Note 8 / Android version 8.0.0

    • After watching a video, I'm getting a server connection issue about 90% of the time which sometimes causes the game to crash.

    • On all tables, I occasionally get a dead flipper (both left and right) when the ball rolls towards the flipper at a high speed...this includes the ball rolling down the flipper from the inlane as well.

    This was a problem with the initial installation of the app. Once I deleted everything including the data and the cache, and re-downloaded all table files and re linked my Google Play games account everything started working again.

    I am now playing the game.

    It doesn't on Android. Game Centre is Apple only.

    The VIP Tab is only to register your email address. You can't set an alias.

    The info is getting pulled from your Google Play Games profile, and because my first couple of installs didn't work right, that value was the unmasked user id of my GPG account.

    Read his comment again. He's not complaining. He's accepting that things won't be right at this point.

    He's also making the point that the steam beta spoilt us multi-platform testers with it's initial beta quality.

    It's all good in the hood.

    So the more here is, keep deleting data and uninstalling/re-installing until it works? Because it's working nice and peachy on my 'phone, not on my tablet. I'm assuming it should be okay with syncing profiles and progress between two devices.

    These problems aside, it runs great and looks great on both my devices.

    My only gripe is the complexity of the unlocking mechanisms for the newbie. Yes, there's a tutorial, but no, it's very brief and all of a sudden you're in a land of confusion with 3 different "currencies" (tickets, tokens, parts), overall level (similar to your level in FX3?), table levels.... and so on. Yikes.

    [Edit] Got the floaty menu thing on my Pixel 3 XL now as well. Didn't have it before. Definitely have the graphical glitches mentioned before.

    Oh, I'm not talking about Xanija. Nor was I saying he was complaining. I just meant it reminded me of a time when someone thought they weren't getting a "beta".

    You'll get used to it, eventually. I know, high praise. We all complained about it in the iOS beta, it actually got a bit less confusing with some changes, and now it doesn't phase me at all.

    This!

    Although I'm not sure Fungi's comment was directed against me, but not being a native speaker I sometimes don't get the connotation right.

    League game?? That's certainly not anything I've seen in the iOS version.

    Hehe, fantasy running wild I don't know what's behind it, because it's still locked. It looks a bit like the challenge mode on PC.

    By the way, I did what Jared did - deleted cache, data, uninstalled, reinstalled and now I can play, but the game "forgot" I selected AFM as first table and had me select again. So I went for MM. Now the game doesn't crash anymore when I finish a challenge and lets me actually open the chests.

    Just as I thought - all fine and nice

    BTW: Just got my first achievement when defeating the trolls. Achievement is called: Don't feed the troll

    If you are referring to the Skillz multiplayer side of things I’d get that. Otherwise I don’t know what it’d be from.

    Seconded - Whether you get used to it in the end, or not - It just seems so uneccessarilly complex - or am I just an old fart who doesn't get these kiddy phone games anymore.

    Old Days = 1.Find coins(s) (THE most difficult bit) / 2.Insert coin(s), 3.Press Start / 4.Hope to win Replay/Match (to avoid 1)

    A few more observations:

    1. The "dead/sticky flipper" issue is definitely on all tables (I have unlocked/played all except Party Zone at this point) as is noted above
    2. On AFM and MM, holding the left flipper before plunge to open up the loop for the super skill shot, it sometimes doesn't register that the left flipper is held down - specifically if you don't wait long enough after holding down the flipper and plunging
    3. I have joined the "VIP" club but when I try to select the VIP custom ball, it says "you must join the VIP club" then opens the popup that shows that I am already registered. Impossible to use this ball. I did register for VIP with a different email than my google account, maybe that's a clue...

    Overall the gameplay is fantastic, the action runs smooth as silk and looks great.

    You're just an old fart, who doesn't get these kiddy phone games anymore.

    Yep, absolutely. About Farsight levels of audio lag before they put sounds into the sound pool.

    Playing through phone speakers is fine.
