Is the Wii U version still happening or should I change my version?
Farsight finally made good on this after two years. I asked them again, and they provided a code for the Xbox One.
Great news! Pinballarcade is now available on Xbox One for you Xbox supporters!
So Xbox versions should be out soonish according to the newsletter. I hope I can still get a code for Xbox since I never chose to transfer to another platform.
I backed this project in good faith but FarSight seems to think they can just ignore Xbox users. The right thing to do, would be to refund those that wanted the Xbox version. But, FarSight would rather ruin their reputation. I am sick of asking politely for a refund. At this point, I will NEVER buy another product from them. I will also go out of my way to make sure friends, neighbors, family and anyone I talk to, avoid Pinball Arcade and anything else FarSight sells in the future.
Thanks to FarSight for finally sorting out my reward. Switched reward from Xbox 360 to PC (STEAM).
Bloody autocorrect. Dead forever I meant
Another newsletter and no xbox results. Did they lose the court case thingo? I'm guessing PA on Xbox 360 is now desk as forever?
I didn't get my code either for STNG. But they quickly sent me one after I emailed them via CONTACT me.
happy camper here.

Hello Backers! Steam-Beta works great here and includes STNG table and many more (Twilight Zone, Black Hole, ...). Switched default resolution to FullHD Fullscreen and works fine.
Correct beta-link is (small b) http://www.pinballarcade.com/beta/
(Enter your backer-email to get beta key).
What is going to be done for those of us who still haven't received our rewards?
How can we tell whether the backer tournament has started? I got an email on the 6th saying it would start "the middle of next week," which I assumed meant today, but I haven't heard anything since, and the mobile app doesn't show any current tournament (although I'm logged there with the same account). Is there an update on that?
Yesterday, I received an email for access to Pinball Arcade Beta on Steam and I am downloading it now. I look forward to giving it a try and it takes me one step closer to ST: TNG goodness!
Yea never received my PC version.
Where does the XBOX version stand? I backed this for two platforms - iOS and Xbox. I know there were licensing issues but it's been almost a year. Is there any hope of this showing up on the XBOX? I really would like to be able to play this on the big screen. Holding off backing T2 until I know if this is going to be resolved.
Still not received my reward despite emailing FarSight some time ago.
I never received a steam code for Star Trek: TNG despite backing it. I completed the survey sent and requested the Steam code and got nothing. Almost a year ago. I would have forgotten about it had it not been for the delightful reminder regarding your Terminator 2 table request which, I regret to inform you, I will not be backing.
@Tigran...Please contact Rosa at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is FarSight's new community manager and has been doing an excellent job of getting everyone squared away.
Still waiting on instructions on how to get my backer reward of the iPad version of this game.
@Jackson...The Wii U version of The Pinball Arcade is scheduled to be released September 2013. You shoud receive your Wii U code via email shortly before or shortly after the official release.
still waiting for my Wii U code
Any news about the PC version? Still waiting...
I've still not had my reward either, despite asking via email to change from 360 to PS3.
I'm still waiting for my codes as well. I've sent 3 e-mails already and no reply.
I still haven't gotten my reward for backing this project.
I still haven't gotten my code for the iOS version :(. I feel like I'm never going to get it at this point. Pretty sketchy.
We're happy you're able to play the table now as well!
Forgot to update that I finally got a working code a while back. Happy to be able to play the table now. :)
With regards to the pc version, their support e-mail sent me this reply:
"Thank you for expressing interest in Pinball Arcade. We can't say which tables or systems we're looking at, or working on right now, or any information that hasn't already been officially released to the public through our newsletter or other official media. Yes, we have announced that we will have PC versions of our game as well as that we will support Steam. However, we still do not have a specific launch date as of yet. We will make a public announcement through our newsletter as soon as we do.
For any further concerns regarding the Kickstarter program, please contact the Kickstarter staff through their email.
This email you just sent came into Support and is for technical issues only. The support dept. is not always current on the latest and greatest info for the Kickstarter program.
Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with."
Hi, I was wondering when & how I can download TNG onto my steam europe pinball fx account
So, are we getting a pc version?
I would also like to know about the WiiU edition, i love playing the game on my tablet but id much rather have it on my WiiU so i can compete with my friends directly.
I might not have any luck, but what's with the WiiU version? Since it was listed in the December survey I'd assumed that it was near completion but I guess not? Would you please at least let us know what's going on? I'm willing to be patient, it's a bit maddening having no real ideas about what is going on (I mean, that's what your Kickstarter posts are for).
from the facebook site ,i do wish thay would post here sometimes.
Pinball Arcade fans
We are currently having problems with our email server, and are unable to send or receive. Please send all messages you would normally send to email@example.com to us here on facebook and we will answer them as normal. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I still haven't gotten my reward for backing this project.
On which platform do you want your free copy of Star Trek? iOS sent 12/10/12
I still haven't gotten a key for the psn version of this table that works. The only one that I got, said it was already redeemed.
I tried sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org regarding getting my android key or whatever the the email was rejected?

Are we using a different email address going forward?
The way FarSight has handled this whole process is off-putting, to say the least. Is it too much to ask that we might get a couple of sentences about when Steam keys will be forthcoming?
I emailed them again since the wait was getting quite long and got a prompt response with new code. Apparently they are doing some revamping in their customer service department which may be affecting things. Too bad that even with the new code I still can't play. Maybe me and pinball just weren't meant to be.
I got a response a while ago with the same issue, was expecting it to be fixed but theres still no table added my account or the account of the person I was gifting a copy to. Oh and mmm waiting for the PC version, eta?
Ok, Far Sight you've been greenlit. You have your distribution & DRM. Can we please now have our PC version?
I still haven't gotten a code and support responses have been slim to none. Anyway someone can give me the android TNG table? Have sent multiple requests regarding this and am getting nowhere.
Pinball Arcade is finally Greenlit!
Received a new code and can finally play on Vita.
Thanks for that! But this whole campaign is kind of a disaster in my eyes.
I can't see how any future campaigns of farsight can have success when they scared away so much of the loayal supporters.
If they do another kickstarter we will see how successfull it will be.
That is so much DAMAGE farsight did to themselves here... the really crippled themself and their chances of ever having a successfull campaign again.
Have still to receive my playstation code - friends who did not back the project are playing already yet us backers cannot even get a response from Farsight. Tried another email today - let's see if they can be courteous enough to reply. Very disappointed.
I signed up for PC and XBox versions, any updates on either one??
So FarSight can reply to Kit Power's comment but no one elses? Surely they must have read the comments at least on this page to see our displeasure. Can we PLEASE have an update on your plans for the PC? Do we have to wait for it to get upvoted on Steam? Where is this beta we were supposed to play? It makes no sense for a company,. who needs buyers of their product to exist, to treat their customers like this. Give us a PC explanation or our money back. I don't have an XBOX or PS3 that's not what I backed it for. To quote a sign I saw "It takes months to find a customer, seconds to lose one". Work with us here.
I got an email for the PSN voucher, but it didn't work. I emailed, and they sent a new voucher that also didn't work. When I responded that this one didn't work, they sent a message asking what country my PSN account was registered. When I responded with US, they said to email email@example.com for further assistance."
Something strange is going on.
They replaced my code. Thanks again!
