    Yes! We are not done with Williams tables, and we are very excited that you enjoy our recreations. We have some big ones in store!

    Can I import my previous tables from Pinball FX3 to Pinball FX?
    For the new Pinball FX, nearly every table in our library is being remastered, updated, and optimized in Unreal Engine to deliver the best pinball experience going forward. Unfortunately, this means that imports will not be available from previous games into the new Pinball FX platform.

    Do I need to rebuy my tables in Pinball FX?
    We know a lot of our players invested into previous pinball platforms, and some tables you may have been playing since 2007. We are working on several ways to make it easier and more economical to access legacy tables in Pinball FX. We’ll have more information on this soon.

    Are there licenses that will not transfer from Pinball FX3 to Pinball FX?
    The majority of our licenses will transfer over to the new game. However, The Walking Dead Pinball and Portal Pinball will not be released into the new platform. They will still be available in Pinball FX3 though.

    Will Pinball FX3 continue to be available once Pinball FX releases?
    Pinball FX3 itself and its DLCs will be available for purchase up through and after Pinball FX releases. They will not be delisted or removed from the store, and we will keep you informed of any possible changes in the event they arise in the future.

    Will there be new leaderboards?
    Yes, Pinball FX will offer brand-new leaderboards to populate with your high scores.

    Will cabinet support be available for Pinball FX?
    We are planning to support the DIY community as we go forward. More details will arrive in the future.

    Which physics will Pinball FX use?
    Pinball FX tables will introduce Pro Physics to all tables that are released into the game.

    Can you provide a list of the "unique table names" for Pinball FX games and a way to use command line arguments to launch the game to a specific table instead of hitting the menus?

    I'd also like a way to launch into the OWNED tables list so I can choose a table.

    I don't want to have to "Hit Any Button To Start"...
