    Yeah, sorry, I think we both figured that out at the same time. I switch back and forth between the two modes, but until I tested it specifically I thought I remembered seeing it in classic as well, turns out just not for Williams tables. Put in the bug report, hopefully it gets fixed. It's a feature from Zen I've always liked.

    Right on. Thanks for submitting the report too.

    The thing that really turns me off the enhanced mode is losing those lovely reflections on the inner walls!

    Cannot do without those!!

    Also, got to give a little luv for JY enhanced mode. I like the fact that Zen took the route of just adding more custom toys, much the same way as would be applied to a limited edition of a real pin, without all the animated character stuff.

    Ideally, I would have liked the toggle for enhanced mode to work like this:
    1. Classic original table - no enhancements
    2. Enhanced table 1 - New static toys added and perhaps some different materials (like a limited edition pin)
    3. Enhanced table 2 - All Zen bells and whistles (New toys, animated characters and particle effects etc)

    Gotta maintain those side wall reflections though!

    Thanks for checking that for me. Maybe something they can add to all modes in the future?

    For months, Taxi was the only thing I played on my PSP version.

    i like the enhancements but in my opinion they could go much wilder, i mean why not, the originals are there too with a press of a button.

    They weren’t sure how far they could push it and wanted to see what the reaction to it was. I totally agree and say go nuts.

    Pffffttttt, that’s why you have ball save at the start of multiball! It turns off around the same time the dragon stops flying 😄

    The dragon is rather distracting, I also find its wings slightly obscure pop bumper skill shots / rollover multipliers. The additional sound effects seem poorly balanced relative to the ROM audio.

    The Getaway would benefit from animated gauges and perhaps the addition of a helicopter with search light, though its flight path would need careful consideration. The extra detail in the mountain range looks great, though it makes combo timing slightly more difficult as you temporarily lose sight of the ball.

    Is there a way to turn off the graphical enhancements permanently (I'm playing regular Single Player)? Or is there at least a way to just turn them off once per play session? I've found that I have to turn them off every single time I start a new game and it's rather annoying.

    Can I take my vote back? I just unlocked the 3d model of the fisherman, and after seeing it up close....yeesh, that face is gonna haunt my dreams.

    Think the answer to that is no, but could always have a new poll a week after Williams pack 3 is released. Would be interesting how ToM, AfM do against MM which is massively ahead in this poll.
