@Mark: hey Mark, I'm having trouble finding any confirmation that Atari Vault contains the game Sprint 2. The Wikipedia page lists Sprint and Sprintmaster. A Google search isn't turning anything up. Are you sure that game is included in Atari Vault?

I'm thinking about adding charts for [Tournament], [Classic], [Standard], and [Arcade] for each of the Pinball FX3 tables.  Some, like Attack From Mars, are entered like that.

However, others are entered with just a default and a [Classic] setting, like this one:

Pinball FX3: American Dad! Pinball (PC)

Pinball FX3: American Dad! Pinball [Classic] (PC)

So I'm not sure which of these settings is the default listing, or if the one with no settings shown is actually a 5th option.  I see in your evidences you have "Single Player" highlighted, rather than "Classic Single Player."

Perhaps Single Player is the default mode, and distinct from the other four settings?

Thanks for all of your work processing requests. Now I have to search through all of my evidence so that I can post scores for them all. :)

Also, just to be sure... these Pinball FX3 games, we don't need 3 and 5 ball options for each table?

@Mark: I noticed for some FX3 tables already entered, we have options for [Tournament], [Classic], [Standard], and [Arcade].

@Mark: question about the Pinball FX3 tables -- I see you've requested [Arcade], [Classic], and [Standard] variants for each of these. Another user has also requested several FX3 tables, but has them labeled as [Arcade], [Tournament], and just stand-alone with no setting specified. Are these correct? and are there actually four modes?

That makes sense. Hopefully you will get caught up enough to process my requests. I did process the Devil Riders 2019 table for Zaccaria Pinball, so thanks for that. Oh, last night there was an Update to Pinball Deluxe: Reloaded waiting for me on Steam. I read thru what this Update was for (mostly tweaks to the overall game), and it mentioned that the next Update for the game, which is supposed to happen soon, is the addition of a new table. I have no idea yet what that table will be.

I submitted requests for the tables that make up the Williams Volume 3 pack for Pinball FX3. So far they have released 10 tables (3 per pack w/1 free table).

hi Mark! It appears The Year 1999 is the same game as Condor Attack on the 2600. Also just to give you an update, I've been focusing on the most recent requests lately, whenever I have time for requests. I figured since I haven't had time to keep up on all of them, at least this way new users will be able to see that the request function is still rocking. But I do hope to get some significant processing done at some point.

Most of the player friends play Single Player. Is that Standard or Arcade on HS.COM?

Hey Marc. I just bought the Williams vol. 1 pack for Pinball FX3. But how should I see this. You created Classic, Standard, Arcade and Tournament. The latter is obvious. But I always play on single player. In-game you can then select 'Single Player' or 'Classic SP'. Classic SP is arcade perfect without all the bells and whistles/power ups. So I prefer Classic SP.

But in which category should I post Classic SP on HS.com? Under Classic or Arcade?

I believe Arcade is not required here on HS.COM as I believe it doesn't exist in Pinball FX.

cheers

...yes, I'm afraid we'll have to add the rest of the Atari Vault games.  So far this is how we've been doing it, with specific "collection" releases, even though they probably just use emulators included on the disk or whatever format they use.  Ever since PS2-era anyway. 

So unless & until we hear otherwise from Serious, I think that's how we should do it.

Emulation machines, though (like Pandora Boxes, or Flashbacks, or Virtual Console, etc.) ... I'm done adding those!   xD

@Mark:

Wow, thanks but now that brings up a new question!

your score for the Vengeance Premium Edition is categorized under TPA: Star Trek.

and yet, there is another chart for TPA: Star Trek: Vengeance Premium Edition

Are these two titles one and the same game?  accidental duplicate charts?

Yes, this score was submitted for the wrong table. Both Stern's Star Trek (Vegeance Premium Edition) and Williams' Star Trek: The Next Generation table have been released for The Pinball Arcade. The submitted score was for Star Trek: The Next Generation but was submitted for the Star Trek (Stern) table.

Yes, I'm feeling much better now. Thanks for asking. Whatever I had didn't seem to want to let me go, but I think it finally has now. :)

Now I have a question for you. There is a game on Steam called Atari Vault. This includes 100 games. It is supposed to have a Leaderboard but it doen't always work. At any rate there are only a small handfull of the 100 titles in the system here. Should I submit the rest?

https://store.steampowered.com/app/400020/

The only other solution that I can think of is to submit 2600 games under 2600 emulation and arcade games under arcade simulation.

@Mark: no problem, they're easy to remove. I hope you're feeling better for a happy new year! I have a question for you -- Is RetroRob correct here, and this is a miscategorized submission? : http://highscore.com/score/?s=77649 these are hard for me to distinguish!

Sorry about that. I wish there was a way for me to delete those table requests. I guess you'll just have to reject them. I don't know if that will have a negative effect on my User Points total or not.

I think I know how I messed up. I've been fighting the flu off and on for about a month. Just when I think that I have it licked, the symptons come roaring back. I posted several scores last night; I moved on to Pinball HD Collection to click on the link for the Fantasy (recently processed) table so that I could finally submit my High Score for that table. I really had the chills bad, even wearing two T-shirts and an outdoor jacket. I believe I typed Fantasy Pinball into the search engine. That's the name that this game is known as for Android, eventhough the Fantasy table wasn't included. Imagine that. No Fantasy table in Fantasy Pinball.

Appologies from my fevered mind. I just did a google search for Fantasy Pinball and found that it was also released for iOS devices. In fact, it's still being listed as being available through the Apple Store. I won't bother requesting it because I have a policy of only requesting games that I own, and while I own the Android version I do not presently own the iOS version.

@Mark: ok thanks. I couldn't find anything about any E.T. pinball for android so I decided to download Zen Pinball on my phone... There is indeed an E.T. table. I should really take this approach more often! xD

@S.BAZ:

Zen seems to have adopted the Pinball FX3 name across all platforms now, although Android and iOS may still be using Zen Pinball.  I don't know. Here is a link I found from Zen Studios with all of the platforms that Pinball FX3 is available on:

https://www.pinballfx.com/

I searched within' all of the platforms that Pinball FX3 is available for. I found the Universal Studios Pack for the Switich and the PS4. I could have missed it in the list of DLC for the Xbox One.

Oh wait, ...

So do you think this other user requested it wrong?  And there is no game properly titled "Zen Pinball: E.T." ?
