Pinball FX3 for Xbox/Win10 users thread

Pinball FX3 is Zen Studios' latest arcade video pinball platform. The game is free with a single table (Sorcerer's Lair), plus original and licensed tables available for purchase as DLC in packs and seasons.

Available here for both Xbox One and Windows 10:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/stor...3/9PCKBVF3P67H

Pinball is at it's best when chasing leaderboard rankings. If you play FX3 on Xbox or Windows 10 (non-Steam) and would like to add AVS members who also play FX3 to see their leaderboard rankings, please post your Gamertag in this thread, and I'll list them below. All skill levels and table collections are welcome, as is friendly competition. If there's interest, we might start some AVS members-only in-game tournaments.

Game discussion and table evaluation also welcome in this thread.

To participate, add the following Gamertags to your Xbox Friend's list, and post your Gamertag in this thread to be added to the list.

I do have this game installed, and I actually have a higher score than you on one of the tables, but which table that is currently escapes me. However, you score way higher than me on all of the other tables that I've played so far.

I will admit that I don't play this game that often, but feel free to add my tag to the list: GoNats

I checked yesterday, and I believe all of the tables we have in common, you are way ahead of me. I want to say at the time that it was The Walking Dead table. I have 8-ish million on that one. Did you get a new high score on that in the past few weeks?

It's possible. I sometimes look for tables I have no high score for and give it a decent first attempt - just to get on the leaderboards. Once I get on all the leaderboards (new scoring and traditional), I'll try to raise my rankings on each.

Anyone else want to join in the fun..?

I'd recommend waiting for the tables to go on sale. I'm not sure how often that happens, though. I happened to catch a sale last month and picked up 12-13 tables, but I still ended up spending about $23.

The good thing is, so far, when they upgrade the base game, tables you've purchased previously can be imported.

You've got some crazy good scores on Sorcerer's Lair. Your 5-minute challenge (I think it was that one?) probably won't be beat by anyone.

And 614 mill either... how long was the round on that table to achieve that score?

It took quite a while. Seemed like I was playing it for 45 minutes that game.

Anyone have any troubles getting tables to download? I'm showing 2 start wars tables that have a down arrow next to them and to push A to download, but it doesn't do anything. I don't see an option to buy either

Did you try restoring your purchased tables? I think it's hitting X on main screen.

So the tables are future star wars tables.... They are not available yet... Two more to add to the collection when they get released!

My only complaint is there is a table or two I want but need to buy a package or bundle where I already own the other tables and no way to buy a single table. I'm not spending 9.99 for a single table either!

Tried the new Star Wars tables yesterday, and they are pretty good, like all the other SW tables.

I have a couple starter first-try scores on the leaderboards for you guys to chase, shouldn't be difficult. I got on a roll on the Ahch-To table, and wound up with a pretty good score without really knowing what I was doing.

Huge news from Zen Studios - they will have licensed Williams tables in the future! I guess that's the reason Farsight Studios had to pull support for Williams in Pinball Arcade.

The first four Williams tables coming to FX3 will be:
  • Fish Tales
  • Medieval Madness
  • Junk Yard
  • The Getaway:High Speed II

EDIT: For those with PCs/Steam, a beta is available with these four tables:
https://blog.zenstudios.com/?p=8346

===

Meanwhile, the three Star Wars tables based on the movie Solo come out next week, on Wednesday Sept. 12. See you on the leaderboards!

I'm honestly not that familiar with Fish Tales, High Speed 2, or Junk Yard. Medieval Madness appears to be a 2 minute trial so I wasn't able to get that much of a feel for it.

But overall, I feel like TPA's versions played better... but Zen's versions look much better. Zen also has much better UI (though I play on the PC/Steam version so I'm not sure if TPA is better on console).

Farsight’s UI is pretty clunky on all platforms. Zen has a much more slick presentation. And I thought the familiar IRL tables play exceptionally well in FX3. Hats off to Zen!!! Looks like I’ll be rebuying these tables...again.

Another piece of news re: the new FX3 versions of Williams tables - Zen is including an option of adding their trademark animations and special effects to the real tables.
