    Regarding the lighting of RoadShow and it looking 'flat'. The models of Red and Ted are fantastic looking, especially if you do a side by side with TPA. I would certainly like it if the lighting were a bit darker, but I always want that.

    Here's my 2 cents for getting Zen's attention...do it on Twitter. They don't look at this site much, not like FarSight does at all. Twitter on the other hand...for instance both with with the network going down a few weeks back and the challenge rewards not issuing yesterday, I went on Twitter and mentioned it, that got their attention, it was fixed the next day. So if you want changes to lighting, changes to color of the rails, whatever, speak up on both the @Zen_Studios and @PinballFX twitter accounts. It's way more effective.
    SYT, thanks for your reassurance on Red and Ted. Online videos are never a definitive guide but I can only go on that for now. Fingers crossed Roadshow looks better than the video portrays at this stage.

    Thanks for the Twitter suggestion but unfortunately I don’t twit

    Any thoughts on the flippers update?

    On the flipper physics update, this from Zen’s blog:

    This release brings a brand new feature too! Our pinball team here at Zen Studios is on a mission to elevate our pinball simulation to higher and higher levels. This newest improvement to Pinball FX3 is a redesigned flipper physics system for the Williams Pinball Volume 4 tables. The flippers now behave more like their real-life counterparts, meaning they react to the weight of the ball, and they wobble when snapping to upright position and when going back down.

    We’d like to thank the mods and operators of digitalpinballfans.com for helping us test out this new feature, and we’d like to ask for the feedback of you in the broader community as well. The Pro Physics introduced with Williams Pinball last fall achieved its current form with your help — a practice we’d like to continue into the future!


    So it would seem this has only been applied to the new Volume 4 tables so far

    I just confirmed Iíll be interviewing Mel tomorrow morning. If you guys have specific questions, post Ďem and Iíll work them in if I can. Iíve got a laundry list myself that probably duplicates many of yours, but it helps me prioritize.

    That’s good news! I guess leading on from my last post, what’s the plan for applying the new Volume 4 physics update to the other Williams tables?

    Any chance we might see updates such as different boxers in Champion Pub?

    Any news on Williams physics being applied to Zen original tables?

    When will we see the first fully licensed Williams table?

    Oh yeah, and what’s happening with Stern

    I'd ask about ROM states - some things that should be random aren't - for example 1 ball challenge on Champion Pub door award always (at least for me) awards light all jackpots. Would be interesting to know if that's a deliberate design choice or not.

    Also ask if alphanumeric (with or without custom DMD added) or LCD tables will be added first - should be much easier to do alphanumeric ones, but may be wrong to assume they will come earliest.

    Do they think they could eventually get a licence for all licensed tables, or are there any unobtanium ones?

    I wish that Zen made backglass images available for their Williams/Bally releases, it'd save a lot of hunting. I've found a site (link below) that has lots of excellent images, but it doesn't have them all.

    Will they ever be putting in a lightings option for room/bulb brightness similar to TPA?

    +1 for the question about adjustable lighting; gamma helps but we need bulb brightness too.

    Also, can you ask Mel to Include the ability to add friends in the iOS version. The ďAdd FriendĒ option used to be in the Game Centre app, but when Apple got rid of the app and integrated Game Centre into iOS settings, they removed the option. Now it is an element of the Game Centre API and has to be added as a feature within the game itself by the developer.
    It would be nice to see a user on the high score list and be able to tap to send a friend request. This would be good for both Williams and Zen Pinball app.

    Thirdly (not being demanding at all lol), what is the status of the censorship issue with console versions... update please. Iím sticking to Steam and holding off PS4 version until we hear something.

    Thank you.

    Does anyone know if World Cup Soccer on PArcade was licenced or not.
    I believe that they by-passed some FIFA stamps on playfield to free up licensing??
    This game would a great addition a Top Ten Williams/ Bally pinball.

    They modified it to bypass licensing. That's why it was World Champion Soccer and not World Cup Soccer.

    Questions for Mel if possible:

    Could we have the option that when you get a game over and finish a game, PFX3 doesn't exit back to the classic single player results screen - It would be better if it either stayed with the table and overlayed the results with the regular table music/sfx, or if it had to exit back to classic single player results screen, it would be better atleast if the music related to the table?

    Could the console version have some more DMD size options? If you are playing the game on a console/PC connected to a big TV, the Dot Matrix Size choice under Options> UI/Streaming are currently small, medium or large.
    This sounds like enough choice, however I often play in view 1 or 1w, and the large dot matrix option encroaches onto the table, and medium seems too small - I think medium needs to be larger than it is currently perhaps, but not so large that it covers any part of the table (ideally) - or the large option needs to be a tad smaller.

    I'll just tell you guys, some of these questions I won't ask Mel simply because it doesn't fall under what he does. He's VP of Publishing, so he can answer questions about where the game is going or what they hope to do with it. So if you don't hear your question being asked, it's not because it wasn't good, but that it would be better to gain the attention of Akos the community manager via Twitter.

    I take back what I said about Roadshow looking flat and unfinished.

    This screen gives a much better impression (perhaps it's from a later build):

    The games are set to tournament mode, which usually takes away all randomness for obvious reasons.

    Are you thinking of the kind of LCD's that's in modern pins that only have been around a few years? Bally/Williams never used those. Maybe you're thinking of the kind of monitors that were used in pinball2000?

    Question for Mel:

    With the 1st four packs being DMD's, can we expect some Bally/Williams SS and A1 soon?

    Any word in general on cab? Most notably the ability to set your own camera would be fantastic.

    Mixed feelings about the group. Generally Zen has done a good job of putting in at least one table I think I'd really like and then at least one table I have no care for. The wild card is the third table. I'm mixed on WW, not yet a fan of Red and Ted, but can get happy for Hurricane.

    if they gave us all best stuff in one pack people would avoid the not so good packs... but me i have to obsessively buy them all no matter what. I don't even care if it's got a dmd or not, all the real game is on the table itself. when i play a table with a dmd in real life i'm not even looking at it 95% of the time. takes me out of the game, the only times i look up is to see if i'm beating my opponents score.
