Game exits every time on Pinball FX3 logo
Picked this game up a couple days and had been enjoying it quite a lot. I've bought a bunch of the table packs and had been experiencing no issues. Tonight, I purchased the Marvel Original Pack and the Star Wars Heroes Within pack, and when I fired the game up to try them out, I found that as soon as the Pinball FX3 logo animation is shown, the cursor shows a loading spinner for a second and then i'm dropped back to desktop.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, i've tried deleting the Zen profile settings from My Documents, and i've tried rebooting, but I can't get any other result than being dropped to desktop at the Pinball FX3 logo. Just really sucks that everything works great until I spend more money. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ha, I just went and bought a number of pinball packs yesterday, things were going fine, I reboot my PC and now it gets to the loading profile screen then freezes.

Have to close out with task manager. . . .maybe server issue?

My Game Crashes On Startup Since Today On Windows 7 64 Bit Too While "Loading Profile". Bought Yesterday "Sci-Fi Pack" And "Carnivals And Legends" And Now The Game Is Not Even Playable.

Curious Thing, Hope The Problem Will Be Solved Soon.

Same problem here, worked fine until I tried to start with Universal, Foxx, and Portal tables installed. Now crashes just after splash screen

Same here, I thought I'm the only one. Luckily I only spent 2 bucks for tables, but especially for people who spent more money, this is unacceptable.

Just a heads up, I cross posted this on the official Zen Studios forums. It may be worth posting a reply there just so the developers are adequately informed of the situation. Link:

Same thing here as well. Worked fine yesterday but today after purchasing a DLC bundle it closes at the "Loading Profile" screen.

I bought some DLCs 2 days ago and played them perfectly for a few hours. Yesterday it started crashing at the "Loading Profile" screen every time. Nothing changed on my computer.

Tried offline mode as well but still crashes.

Same problem here....freezes at "Loading Profile". Are these problems normal with FX3? I never had any issues with FX2. I decided to upgrade today and bought $84 of DLC. Played a couple hours then came back to play more and now this.

Same thing. Bought yesterday and worked perfectly. Bought classics and Jussaic Park and even played them. Today it freezes at Loading Profile. I reinstalled the game and it loaded content without problem but again stopped working at loading profile (or rather it drops to desktop with message that program stopped working).

Same issue with me as well. "Loading Profile" then back to desktop. I'm not even getting any sound until the Loading Profile screen. Then it's just a couple of scrambled sound bites and that's it.

I guess we gotta wait till someone comes into work on Monday? And maybe that's when I'll get a cabinet code also? LOL. I hear they ask people to send pictures of the cabinet to prove you are not a commercial business. How does a picture prove that my cabinet looks rather professional in my opinion.

Add me to the "freezes at loading profile screen" Hope this is fixed very soon as I love this game!

ok.... at least something...

i removed (not deleted) the profile.dat from

C:\Users\User\Documents\Zen Studios\Profile backup\442120\76561197987385384

.... Started the game... it worked but my stats were gone.... quit the game...

moved the old file back and restarted..... worked so far.... we´ll see tomorrow..
