Sorry if this has been answered before but I have a big issue with the dot matrix windows on an Ipad4. It,s very, very tiny and changing the size in the options doesn't change anyrhing. I also can't seem to change the location. Is this a known problem?
I kinda want the dot matrix to be readable and visible

The Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF) showed an interesting documentary report about history of pinball arcade machines and modern mobile pinball video games. They visited ZEN Studios in Budapest, Hungary.

It's German-language but nice to watch anyway, lots of historic and hyper modern pinball scenes, insights on high-tech pinball programming:

(Runtime 13 minutes. The show will be available at this link for 7 days. Maybe I'll upload it to YT later.)

(Blog German-language; but you'll find all links, pics, and videos.)

About to go on vacation tomorrow and wanted something with some progress/grind so finally picked up Epic Quest. Fun stuff! Having trouble consistently hitting sword and shield ramps, and the overall game is a bit fast..but I'm sure that'll come with time.

Hopefully the Starwars tables means Zen Studios can support "iphone5" resolution..or at least extend the flipper controls to the black deadzone. I accidentally hit the deadzone once in a while.

Which Marvel tables are the must haves? I've got Thor, Captain America, Wolverine and Blade, are any there better ones than those?

I just downloaded X-Men last night and so far I recommend it. Tons of ramps.

Speaking of the X-Men table... It isn't easy, and a little frustrating in some aspects. Some challenges (for example, obtaining 'Unite') are lost when you lose your ball. I consistently will get to the 't' and lose my ball, then have to start over with my next ball. I find this annoying. Also, when a certain challenge is in effect, like finding Mystique, the game doesn't keep track of other challenges until the one challenge that is most active is completed or times out on its own. I also find this irritating, since sometimes I get the Xavier Gift while another challenge is active and it doesn't recognize it.

Any thoughts?

Greetings from Thailand. ;-)

Epic Quest is pretty fun.. I'm finding hitting the sword ramp hard as heck. I seem to be able to hit the shield ramp a bit more consistently. I seem to kill monsters due to the smash target more often then with the sword...

Yep very impressed so far

Been playing the Boba Fett table a lot, have to play the others at lunch.

But excellent, i couldnt find the standalone app they mentioned (wonder how that will work, will it realise if you've paid for the tables in Zen Pinball or not ?)

But really impressed
