    I believe it was the vote for your favorite pinball parts thing (Scared Stiff won for flippers)

    Yeah...I am sure that’s it. 🙄

    Meanwhile in reality land:

    “Halloween is a big deal here at Zen Studios! Scary movies, bountiful piles of candy, crazy drink concoctions, and we can’t leave out the costumes – what could possibly be better than that? How about some Halloween themed pinball action! Fight off vampires and defeat Deacon Frost in Blade, take a ride through hell with Ghost Rider, and solve supernatural mysteries in Paranormal.” https://www.pinballfx.com/?p=2349

    “WE LOVE HALLOWEEN! AND WE LOVE PINBALL!”
    https://blog.zenstudios.com/?p=4936

    “Zen Studios are bringing classic Universal Monsters to Williams Pinball just in time for Halloween, with two new DLC packs: Monster Bash, and Creatures of the Black Lagoon.”
    https://www.godisageek.com/2019/10/z...for-halloween/

    Yeah they really hate Halloween. Totally.

    I never said that they "hate" it. The country Hungary doesn't celebrate it. It should also be noted that their is a US branch of Zen that does the marketing. No surprise that the posts you linked say they like Halloween, but it's the Hungary branch that does the development.

    You said they don’t really care for it, and don’t go out of their way for it. I don’t know what you are basing your opinion on, since you have provided nothing, but evidence and past releases would indicate otherwise.

    I'm basing it on past history. I've been buying Zen's tables since 2010 on PS3 and there were only been a couple times they released a horror theme that coincide with Halloween.

    Paranormal - Was the first time they released a horror theme near Halloween on 10/22/2010.
    Blade (part of Marvel Pinball) - 12/14/2010
    Sorcerer's Lair - 6/2/2011
    Ghost Rider (part of Vengeance and Virtue) - 12/13/2011
    Fear Itself (part of Avengers Chronicles) - 6/18/2012
    Plants vs Zombies table - 9/4/2012
    The Walking Dead table - 8/26/2014
    Aliens (3 pack) - 4/26/2016
    Doom table (part of Bethesda Pinball) - 12/06/2016

    This info is coming directly from my PSN transaction history from 2010-2017. I always bought the tables on release day. I've listed every title that had at least a hint of horror to them. Only once during that time, had they released a table out near Halloween.

    A quick google search notes that Nightmare Mansion originally released out 1/16/2008, while Buccaneer released right on Halloween 10/31/2007 (after several delays) on the original Pinball FX on Xbox 360.

    OK so two tables in past besides the Williams Universal Monsters pack. My point is don't get your hopes having a yearly Halloween table release. You will be sorely disappointed like I have been for nearly 7 years in the past. At best, we would get a Halloween tournament, so they at least acknowledged the holiday.

    Not sure if this was mentioned yet, but there was an update out for the PS4 that adds the new table pack with "COMING SOON" on the table icons.

    On iOS. I’ve got tables, I’ve got parts, but I unfortunately also have scratchy audio on the main menu which I never had before. ☹️

    Audio is fine on my phone.

    I’ll point out to people that paying the purple coin in the challenge rewards WILL get you another table part. That’s for the limited time event, not the standard challenges.

    The audio level sliders are most definitely messed up.

    For example:
    On Funhouse, increase the music slider in-game to maximum. The music volume increases and plays correctly at the *volume menu*. Return to the game and the music volume drops to what it was before it was changed.

    Now do the same but decrease the music level to zero. The music volume decreases to zero at the *volume menu*. Return to the game and the music volume increases to what it was before it was changed.

    Simply entering the volume menu will show and play the levels correctly but in-game audio is broken...the music volume slider (at least) does absolutely nothing in-game.

    Note that this only affects the three new Volume 6 tables:
    FunHouse, Dr. Dude & Space Station. Tables pre-Volume 6 are unaffected.

    iOS version makes no difference either. I have an iPad mini 4 on iOS 12.4.1 and a mini 5 on iOS 14.1 (released today) and there is no difference between the two regarding this audio issue.

    This has been reported to Zen via the in-game support section (Settings/Contacts Us).
