Has anyone gotten the Limited Edition DLC tables to work with the physical game card?

I can't, and I am not sure why. I did buy the DLC before I owned the game card, but you would think it would still work since it is still the same Nintendo account and same Nintendo Switch.

I think the physical game and the downloaded version are separate versions, or at least they were at one point. When the vertical option was patched in, I saw people complaining that the physical cart version hadn’t been updated. I wonder if that’s why the DLC you bought isn’t working with your new “version” of the game. Even though it’s the same game, they are being treated as different games from the eShop’s perspective. Thinking about it as I’ve typed this, this is most likely the case. The physical game comes with all the standard tables “unlocked” straight from the cart, whereas you buy the tables as DLC on the downloaded version. This is probably why the two versions of the game don’t use the same patch update, and why your purchased DLC doesn’t work with your cart version. Have you tried to re-download the game from the eShop? Does it even let you?

@madmatt213 I did try redownloading the game, and it didn't work, but I think I will try again and make sure I deleted the correct save data.

I contacted Stern via Facebook, and they said to send an email to their support team, which I did, but I haven't heard back. It has only been a few hours, so I will give them a couple of days before I email again.

I hope this will work eventually, because I was really excited about getting the physical copy for $20, but this has put a damper on my excitement for the meantime.

ACK

@LinktotheFuture In most cases it would work that way, but Farsight is playing around, so in this case the physical and digital versions are treated as completely separate games.

Actually I believe the physical version lacks any option to buy additional DLC.

@ACK Yeah, you may be right. I don't see how to buy DLC from it. I might be stuck here.

Great news, at least on North American eShop! If you digitally bought Stern packs in Stern Pinball Arcade, they show as free in The Pinball Arcade! As I mentioned earlier up above, Farsight Studios Customer Service told me that they were working on it, and apparently they got it working now!

I had already bought Stern Pinball Arcade pack 1, and it showed up as free for Stern pack 1 in The Pinball Arcade. I then gambled and bought Stern Pinball Arcade pack 2, and then checked the DLC in The Pinball Arcade and Stern pack 2 was then showing up as free for me! No clue if it works the other way, buying in TPA and then being free in SPA. I wanted to make certain I had it both places, so I bought pack 2 in Stern, since that’s how I had acquired pack 1.

And as a reminder, all the Williams and Bally tables go away in less than a month (June 30th), so buy what you want in Steam/Wii U/PS4/Xbox One/iOS/Android/etc!

Enjoyed these, but not worth a double dip for me.

Curious as to why Nintendolife hasn't reviewed the Pinball Arcade? They reviewed Pinball FX3 and Stern.

At this point Pinball Arcade is by far the best way to play these games. I bought the Stern stand-alone collection but I got them again in Pinball Arcade since I found that to be a better application. The UI is a lot smoother and faster to navigate, it has a lot more tables, and more options. It even does Stern Pinball better, offering one of my favorite tables that the original collection was missing for some reason. Looking back I kinda wish they just released it like this originally, it seems kinda pointless having bought them the way I did before.

maybe there should also be a seperate forum for Pinball Arcade instead of having to post in the Stern forum?

Anyone still playing this? I only recently bought the physical cart as it was the cheapest way to get the 11 tables rather than £17.99 per pack of 6 on the eShop for my region. Bummer that you can’t buy any additional tables via the physical cart such as FLIGHT 2000 (may be misremembering the table name, it’s late where I am, lol!) which is in one of the Stern Packs for TPA.

Anyways, I’m really liking these digitised versions of real-life tables and they make a pleasant accompaniment to the excellent Williams tables now being released in PINBALL FX3.

For anyone interested, we’re having a casual, for fun, score chase on the STAR TREK table. Feel free to post a pic of your scores or join the Adult Switch Gamers Discord - I can send you an invite link.

@Lroy Hell yeah I'm joining this one! Also just got the physical release of the game for the same reason and enjoying it. Sadly no in-game friend leaderboards... So scroll all the way to the left of this page and find our own small leaderboard.

Here’s my current score. Just having a play and only at the very beginning of learning how this table works. But it’s a hell of a lot of fun.

Can’t beat a really well thought out real-life table albeit digitised 😉

@Corneel Played a bit more of this table myself, this morning. Can barely match my current score, lol! Think we’re give this STAR TREK table competition until the end of March.

Then we’ll pick another STERN TABLE for the month of April. All players welcome. Just post a pic of your score here or over on the pinball tournaments thread on the Adult Switch Gamers Discord. Invite link is in my forum signature.

@corneel You also gonna post a score for our PINBALL FX 3 tournament on THEATRE OF MAGIC? Think that one has a four or five days left to run.

@Lroy I won't be joining the tournament this round. Haven't got much time this week and I want to give Cue Ball Wizard and Star Trek also some more tries.
