    I'm pretty sure Pro Physics and Pro Difficulty (aka "Tournament Mode") are the settings used in Android League Play. Table rake is noticeably steeper and things like random awards are no longer random - such as Stroke Of Luck in AFM always awarding 50,000,000, or the random award in HS2 always following the same progression (5M->revs->Freeway->Video Mode->Multiball).

    Pinball FX3 is not Mac compatible, but luckily for us, they are releasing the new tables (tables not being released on FX2 anymore) including Williams on Zen Pinball 2. I play it there (2015 13" Macbook Pro) and it works well. It does have notable shortcomings compared to Pinball FX3 (taken from my post on the official Zen forum); the most obvious being that you can't save in the middle of a game, there are no online leaderboards so you have no community to compare your scores to (I would love to take part in some of the facebook community weekly tournaments), you don't have tournament physics mode for the Williams tables and there is no portrait and /or cabinet mode. I don't care for all the FX3 gimmicky stuff (Powerups etc), but that is also missing.

    At least I can play the new tables and I'm grateful for the opportunity to play the Williams tables without having to buy a new PC or console and importantly for me, for the Williams tables you have both the zen physics and the classic arcade physics (real/simulation physics) and with the option to play with the graphical enhancements. The physics and thus gameplay, as far as I can tell, is on par with the FX3 physics (both standard and arcade physics) based on gameplay videos that I have watched, so that is probably the most important aspect and I'm very grateful for that.

    Still hoping they find a way to bring us Alvin G's Mystery Castle. I've never seen one in real life, and it would be a real treat.

    By "unreleased", do they mean original? I'm not a fan of those, especially when they just put a new skin on an existing table.

    Well, if there's female hair, I'm in! I actually haven't purchased a table for quite some time. I'd like to see one that really interests me. AC/DC is close.

    I believe the actual way it was phrased was "The table hasn't been physically built yet, but will be soon." And now that Elvira 3 has been confirmed as one of the next Stern releases, it is probably a safe bet to guess that the next Farsight table is Elvira 3. Plus, with all the recent Elvira hints in the Twitch stream and the recent Jay, Brian and George photo... well it does seem likely that E3 is next.

    The only thing I am wondering about is if it will be a new from the ground up design or a mod/re-skin of an existing table. I'm leaning toward re-skin based on what I have seen/heard, but you never know...

    As much as I love the classic tables, I feel like putting out recent releases is a great idea, and a good way to retain interest in the app. It's a great selling point to be able to say the tables you're releasing are new and have modern rule sets, effects, and challenges.

    Having seen the difference in the cosmetics of Medieval Madness between Zen and TPA, I hope TPA steps up their game a bit. The lighting and realism on the zen tables is pretty great.

    The SPA tables have been of generally very high quality - I have high hopes for this. However, a pace of one new table per year is not going to keep their pinball franchise alive. Hopefully there is more in the pipeline.

    After almost 6 years of monthly releases to pinball arcade, we decided to slow down to work on other projects. At the same time, Bally and Williams decided to switch developers. We will still be releasing some top notch tables in the future.*:-)*Stay tuned!
    This was recently posted on their FB. Sounds like they may have multiple table releases planned. Just gotta hope it's true.

    True, but they didn't even bother adding the last two tables to SPA. TPA will still need an overhaul if we want that level of quality again.

    It would be great to finally have the complete set of standard Alvin G. pins.

    I mean, I can't imagine they're ever going to do the head-to-head games or Punchy the Clown.

    They had every intention of doing Alvin G soccer. It sits in their conference room, it’s why they were trying to get head to head off the ground.

    Well, here's hoping that project gets revisited at some point, then.

    Do they have a Mystery Castle?

    Not that I saw. I believe the Pistol Poker and World Tour tables were made by visiting the Museum of Pinball in Banning or having them on loan from there. I don't recall seeing a Mystery Castle at the Museum.

    Hey Matt, I remember an interview you had with Blahcade last November. You stated that you were working a 3 new tables. Does this one count as one of the 3? Or is this a forth one?

    Edit: Oops, if was Mike. I get you two confused.

    I remember in one Twitch stream that Mike Lindsley said they had a chance to pick up a Mystery Castle table but it was in very bad shape so they passed on it, and in another stream someone asked Mike if they were going to bring out single table releases and he said that they would only be doing packs so not sure if something changed since that time or if they would just release this single table they keep referring to. Kind of sad if Stern only brings out a reskin of Whoa Nellie! for Elvira 3 if that is true, one of the top Bally/Williams' tables like Scared Stiff and Elvira and the Party Monsters and this is the best they come up with????

    It's a pretty rare machine. Guessing they don't have one. I'm sure they could find one, but it might take some looking.
    Just one of those low production pins with a cool theme that I'd like to see added at some point if possible.

    I think TPA should be grateful we're having a conversation about them. They did some nice tweaks to some tables, and they've had a few contests, but outside of that, no PR.. no excitement build... Last I checked, their Twitter was nothing but announcements of live streams or something. I'm fine with fewer tables being released, but not even promoting other work is a big mistake.

    A few tables are playing noticably different/better. I don't know if it's a physics tweak or something else, but I've really enjoyed them.
