That's odd. I've got it for my old iPhone 3GS, and it's worked flawlessly. What is it doing?

I also have some bugs with the new tables (old one run without problem so far). For example, on Pinbot, my best game is something like 40Million (without billionaire club)... but first hiscore in the game is 20 Million... (the 40 million score is in third place ?).
My real best score is more than 2.1 billion (2 billionaire club in the same game...). But there's no way to find it anywhere (completly lost?).Sometimes, all the achievements are reseted. Sometimes the score of the last game is displayed twice.

Sometimes a table needs to be redownloaded (the APP wasn't updated but the table wasn't available on the iPhone).

That's a real pity, because this is only details (apart from the download problem). The engine, the rom emulator, the physics, the sounds and so on must have been very hard to code... coding an highscore system is sooooo easy when you compare

I didn't think they were asking for donations. It seemed like maybe you could pre-order a special edition version or something like that for them to try and get some funds to get the project started. Most companies wouldn't be that honest in pointing out what they are doing. I commend them for it.

There are camera problems on bride of pinbot.
No camera settings are ever saved.
Bride of Pinbot can't save any scores over 1 billion (which is the point of the game).
Expert achievements don't unlock for some tables.
If I hold my phone horizontally when I open the game, all the menus are broken and I am forced to quit the app. The next time I open it, it immediately crashes. If I open the app vertically and then rotate it, everything is fine.

There are others. They are listed all over the fan site.
Most tables are still worth playing, but I won't play Bride of Pinbot because it won't save my scores.

I don't think the kickstarter idea is a great one but give them a break, people all want to pay $1-$4 for a table, anything more and the devs are called nuts by the masses. However, the reality is it's not their fault that the owners of the TZ IP's (for pinball, that's Universal I think? AND Rod Sterling for the likeness AND Williams/Bally for the pinball code). That just doesn't come cheap, I doubt very much they'll split 50 cents each from every table sold.

wow ... How to make super scores, while drinking his coffee (or something else ...)
this reminds me of an old pinball game for the Game Boy ... or the physics of the ball was scripted so as to leave no place at random .... :twisted:

So when they want to recreate Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Spiderman, Ironman, Incredible Hulk, Guns n Roses, Batman, etc will it be expected the community to throw more donations at them or can we just count on the "good" tables without big names attached?

Really, they should be putting out the pc version before Xbox and PS3. Those systems are near the end of their life cycle. Why waste resources when the SDK can change when the next generation comes out? In the meantime the hardcore among us will have $800 in DLC installed in the companies bank account. It doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Well, a quality xbla game typically outsells a pc game by a huge margin so even though the sun will be setting on those consoles sooner rather than later, you can't blame companies for still providing support.
