    All I really want at this point is for cross-buy to work so my SPA Sterns work in TPA, and maybe WWF Royal Rumble and Apollo 13; exploring Data East/Sega history might not be a bad thing.

    If it’s not working contact Farsight support.

    Couldn't they get The Sopranos and Game of Thrones in one pack? The HBO pack or something?

    I don't know how popular the sopranos table is, but i enjoy it a lot.

    That´ll be great, but -to be honest - Zero Chance.

    Never saw the show but ive played the Game of Thrones table at least 30 times. I bet the instructions would be soooo long for GOT. Not one of my favorite tables at all but having it on TPA would get me to actually learn the entire rules. First time I played it was in a match against Bowen Kerins and he absolutley went nuts on the thing while telling me how to play it.

    Cool of him to share his knowledge while crushing you. Gotta love that guy.

    HBO is a subsidiary of Warner Bros, and from everything I've heard they are too pricey for FarSight to license from. I wouldn't put the chances at zero, but it's very slim.

    I read Stern started to include digital versions rights in the licenses sometime around metallica/star trek (2013). GoT came out in 2015 but maybe it was excluded.

    I'm sure it varies from table to table. Just because one company agrees to such a thing, doesn't mean another has to. And it's not like Stern is going to disclose details like that to us, so we'll never know exactly which tables they can grant FS the rights to and which ones they can't.

    What's the term for the opposite of the holy grail? For Stern I think the answer is https://simpsonswiki.com/wiki/The_Si...Kooky_Carnival - something I'd never heard of until I saw one today. So if anyone asks for the Simpsons make dang sure it ain't this. It says Stern Pinball on it, and has some pinball parts in it, but its not pinball.

    And unless I missed (highly possible) something, we still don't really know what Scientific had in mind by pulling the licensing from FarSight.
    I've noticed two things.

    A Star trek table has made it to the pinball arcade app on iOS. I think it was a stern app exclusive.

    Also in the iOS stern app, the AC/DC table exists, but without the sound and scoring display. The table itself still functions. Strange goings on.

    Care to elaborate? Because that is an extreme opinion with nothing to back it up.

    What an incredibly potent argument that is [heavy on the sarcasm].

    I don’t like it either. Big disappointment for me. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    That's what I was thinking as well. Jersey Jack has some great tables that are both hard to find and wicked expensive to own. A digital version would be great.

    Even so, Gottlieb has an enormous catalog of great EM machines that TPA could recreate. I'd be thrilled with that alone.

    For me, the real holy grail (and probably just as unattainable) would be an updating of the Mac version of TPA.

    At this point, it seems the holy grail would be *any* update (bug fixes, new table, etc) from Farsight regarding TPA.

    Nah, TPA is dead. Farsight wouldn't even fix the bugs or make any improvements while they were pumping out table after table, so there's no way they are going to support it now that they don't even have the license to sell the best tables.

    I appreciate what they did for digital pinball, but things are in much better hands now with Zen.

    They promised to continue supporting TPA just to make us buy missing tables in hurry. No support/bugfix since then.

    "However, customers who purchased any of these tables prior to the deadline will continue to own them and have access to them within the Pinball Arcade, and we will continue to support them as we do the other tables in our collection."
    "So if you’ve ever been interested in owning these great tables, please purchase them now, before they disappear!"

    Yup, broken promises sounds about right from Farsight Studios.

    They have been sinking all their effort into a Toyshock digital pinball toy. 12 Gottlieb tables. Even some questionable choices given the full range they had to choose from.

    I'm in that Facebook forum, and the optimism these folks have about the possibilities for future tables from Stern being offered in a similar package is charming.

    Highly unrealistic. But still, charming.

    Wasn't licensed Stern in a pincab dismissed as a possibility by Stern themselves in relation to the Arcooda cabinets, or am I mis-remembering?

    Yep! Gary Stern himself is against pincabs in general.
