Definitely, definitely Option 2!

Also thanks for stopping by. It's an awesome game and I can't wait for whatever you add in the future!

Option 2 for me too. Prefer to have filter options such as highest rated, most recent, oldest, most downloaded all time, most downloaded this week/month...etc.. But this may be a lot of work.

Maybe if each table is stored also using some unique id code, it could be always displayed as well, so people can share codes with friends and can manually add the codes without having to browse the list of user created tables.

Great concept and very fun gameplay! Some things I'd like changed: no developer splash screens, better performance on my iphone 4.

#2. Look at games like Snuggle Truck, iBlast Mok i(I think...and that had sharing ages ago),, non-games like Reactable Mobile(music app) etc. Or Pinball Craft. Not the most polished game, but it IS a pinball game which lets you share and create tables. Enable the downloading of tables.

Once that's inplemented this will be an instabuy for me. As it is, I doubt I'll want to play my own tables much.

Thanks for your feedback! We agree that a global table sharing portal would serve the purpose the most, so we'll try to aim for that. We will keep investigating how this could be done. But please be patient, because doing this feature properly takes time.

Agreed! If we end up doing the table portal, doing this addition will be really easy to add on top of it

I hear you. We are currently using the splash screen sequence to give the game some time to check if you have any updated data in iCloud, and then fetch it if there is, before showing the actual main menu. But we'll see if there's a cleaner way to do this! If we manage to fix this, we probably won't remove the splash screens entirely, but instead make them skippable by tapping the screen.

The iPhone 4 performance is on top of our task list, and hopefully we will be able to submit an improved version soon!

Thanks for sharing that list! We'll check out those games and see what we can learn from them.

1) Do you have the same iCloud username enabled on both the devices? You mentioned same Game Center account, but we are curious to know if you have differention on the iCloud space.

2) Do you have the latest firmware installed on both devices?

3) Is your Game Center account logged into Sandbox environment in either of the devices? You can see this on the "Welcome back userName" prompt, which includes "*** Sandbox ***" text below your nickname, if it's in Sandbox environment.

4) Are you 100% sure that both devices are tethered to a functional internet connection?

5) Is either of your devices jailbroken?

Thanks!
Hi! I loved your game so much but I can't enjoy it. I have the same problem with those guys. Here are my answer:
1) I don't use iCloud
2) I'm using iOS 6.0.1
3) No
4) Yes
5) Yes
I hope you to fix this bug.
P/s: I create a new account just to do this

Favourite game this year so far
It would be even better with the addition of being able to share and download other people's tables

Weirdest thing is, is that it does save my achievements, it just does not save the lightning bolts and some other game related data...

Also in iCloud settings it does not show any data for PinWar...

In the Library/Preferences folder there is a file called: com.bulkypix.pinwar.plist

Which is used to save the progress, the lightning bolts, the missions done, etc.
While playing it, it is correctly updated with the new data after you pkayed a mission or something else.

But if the app is closed and it has to start up completely again it overwrites that file with a new one as if the test to check if the file is there is not correct.

Hope this helps...

PS. I did install the newer version of PinWar in the hopes it would solve this problem but it is still there....
