    Personally I use 1w, 2, or 5. Just kinda depends on what I feel like at the time.

      I used to use 3 on PFX2 but I find I liked 6 on the new version.

        I have issues with any view that zooms into the top when the ball moves up. 5 is the closest I can deal with like that because it only moves the camera, it doesn't zoom.

          I need to see the whole table with its gimmicks as its intended by Zen. I go with 1W. But i wonder what perspective is in Zens mind when designing the tables. Is it 1 or 1W?

            I prefer 3. I like it zoomed in more, and how it follows the ball close. Sometimes I use 6 for flipper close ups but full table view for ball tracking.

              5 is best for me on most tables, though sometimes it limits some stuff going on up top (can't see the guys in the cantina in Han solo for example)

                I like to see a more overhead view of the entire table, so 2, but I use the Steam version, and use a 17" laptop to play. I've attached a 20" computer monitor to the laptop and ran the game vertically and I still ran in 2 (and liked it better, but it's annoying to set up on a regular basis). It seems like 1 and 1w have a tendency to hide things when the ball goes into the back of the table on tables that obscure the back like Secrets of the Deep and Fantastic Four.

                If I played more regularly and had more space in my apartment I might get a cab just to make it easier to see things.

                PS is there a way to get a more "overhead" view on the Steam version than View 2? I know you get a directly overhead view on the Android version of the game.

                  Views 1 and 1w. When multiball comes, if you manually switch to view 2 just once during multiball, the program will automatically do it on that table after that, then automatically switch back when you get down to 1 ball.

                  So 1 or 1w, then 2 during multiball. I use no other views for 1 reason... I like static, non moving, non zooming cameras. All other views, I believe, move or zoom other than 1, 1w, and 2.

                    We usually develop with View 1 in mind, and regulation states that everything has to be visible on a table at least from View 1.

                      View 1

                      I used to go with view 6 in the past, but I just can't stand scrolling cameras anymore. Especially, after upgrading to a larger TV.

                        I use view 4 - except for multiball modes obviously

                        I choose 4 because it brings me closer to the flippers - which is how I aim. I aim by where the ball is on the flipper so I don't really need to see above me once I know the layout of the table

                          I use 4 too. It does hamper me in some specific situations (some cross ramp shots, or modes where you need to see a specific ramdom lit lane) but overall its a good compromise IMO.
                          Actually, I'm very surprised that more people on console/TV don't use this view mode.

                          Obviously 1, 1w, and 2 are objectively the best views, IF you are close enough to the screen. This is why I think PC player have an advantage over console players, which is why I choose to hide cross-platform scores in privacy settings.
