After applying 1.10.13 the default playlist started playback. I stopped playback and ended up with both balls parked in the ball dock and no way to get the table to regain either.
I manually placed the ball and got running again, but it was unexpected after the update to have seen the larger ball apparently disappear!
@pawliger - We've been working hard on making sure something like this doesn't happen. Obviously, we missed something - sorry. We will be very interested to learn what happened so we can fix it. I've created a support ticket for this, and you will hear from our support team shortly.
@pawliger - This is definitely not ideal but is currently expected with wood base tables on this update. We did not communicate clearly about how to avoid this situation and I apologize for that. Thank you for letting us know your experience and I'll make sure to alert all other wood table owners.
What caused this - we pushed a functional change to the operation of these tables that is intended to increase home (center) precision. This new change by itself causes the table to not home correctly in the event it resets without power-cycling the table. This happens during factory resets, name change, and updates. To avoid this issue we added another functional change that returns the ball to home before a factory reset, name change and update. Since we added the changes simultaneously, the fix (home before update) was in place too late to prevent what you saw. Now that both changes are in effect you should not see this behavior on subsequent updates.
We're very sorry for the inconvenience,
Micah Roth, COO
