    As always, thanks for the update Marc. 3 for $10 is far better than 2 for $15, even if one of them is Party Zone. :D

    I might consider buying some once they get to tables that I haven't already bought in TPA (some even more than once with the multiple versions + PHOF).

    Table duplication certainly is a consideration. Good point.

    Now, if we could combine the TPA physics, but otherwise keep everything else FX3 has, it would be a near perfect game.

    It would be nice to be able to nudge more on FX3. TPA allows for too much nudging, FX3 doesn't allow for enough.

    The EB situation on FX3 appears good where as the TPA EBs are out of control depending on the table.

    FX3 flippers have no bounce at all. TPA flippers seem more right, though perhaps a slight bit on the too bouncy side.

    FX3 Game options (one ball, five minute etc.) are far better than TPA in every way.

    FX3 leaderboards, matchups, leagues, tournaments, player game updates etc are far better than TPA.

    With the above said, both TPA and FX3 are excellent virtual pin games.

    They took my recommendation (back when they made the Williams/Ballys deal) with doing an "Attack from Mars" table , also more recently with the option to turn off cinematic mode. Coincidence??? Heh.

    I hear that...And they are well aware too... Same tables, yet plays different. Id say after a few more bundles, they might mix in a brand new one, among the existing TPA's.

    They are HQ'ed in Budapest, Hungary, so they really do not travel to domestic trade shows/conventions like Farsight does. Instead, they have their vendor affiliates do that for them, when they market their real size Virtual pinball machines with Zen Studios software . However, management/engineers has stated on their social network pages numerous times, an open invitation to their place. Yes, they are VERY open to feedback and constructive criticism.

    I don't mind the flippers, but man, the nudge is like non-existent. It's ridiculous when a ball comes slowly creeping down the middle, I nudge and it still drains. FX has so much positive going on, but fix the nudge already! Come on, Camel Boy...Get on this!

    And I'll remind you, our fearless virtual pin power player spokesperson, that not so long ago you were riding on a camel in the Sahara desert.


    Change your next vacation destination to Budapest please and make virtual pinball better for everyone!
