    Looking forward to treating myself to this pack at Christmas time. Thanks for all the great Williams offerings, guys! They're all must-purchase titles for me.

    Now... about that rumored Stern license -- any chance of that happening?

    Well, as someone who has lobied to either remove cross play, which essentially is merely steam cross play and none of the other consoles and to my knowledge the only platform currently plaguing the leaderboards with cheat scores..............or, somehow remove the clearly bogus scores and ban the suspect IP's I for one hate cheaters. If there is indeed some weird glitch, which does not require having to modify any of the core files, that somehow gives you free games, well, good for you guys, and if indeed you for whatever reason after having the game for free, later out of some sort of honor or customer loyalty decided to pay anyway, then good for you for being a stand up guy. I will assume though that few are as stand up as you and will see this glitch as a win for the little guy akin to finding money lying on the ground. Hopefully Zen will see the importance in this and patch it ASAP. I have one of the developers emails and will email him and direct him to this thread.

    Anyway, I have now officially purchased Williams Vol. 5 in the Microsoft Store and everything is the same. So I already had a full version.

    Still I wonder if anyone else has experienced this glitch? Is it just me or do folks just keep quiet about it? Sorry for blowing the whistle then.
    If there is indeed some, "glitch" that allows people to download free versions of games that others pay for then the answer to your question as to those others just remaining quiet seems obvious. lol

    I fear so, as well.Zen used to have a very positive image imo but i can't give them the benefit of the doubt anymore.To be fair maybe business isn't going all that well anymore and they are just trying to survive, hence no new Zen tables but either way it is a shame.Hope they can get back on track and stop the censorship of the consoles, stop the bugs, handle the physics(which to me means providing casual physics for the casual gamer and sophisticated and challenging physics for serious gamers...not some middle ground compromise) and produce some new Zen tables.

    Understandable.At this point boycott is the only way Zen will care.

Can't remember) but the second unlock file removes this timer restriction and gives you full access. If you are not seeing a timer or limitation that restricts the game then you likely have a full version.

    Are you playing the full version or the demo? Just asking because the demo version is free for everyone. Well, maybe not the switch.

    It is not the first time this has happened and I have reported this bug in PMs to the Zen Studios representatives several times. But did I get a "thank you"? Nope. Not even a reply. So maybe this will get their attention.

    Great tables,

    This time i found something bad
    I play in a pincab with a jpg backglass and dmd on 2nd screen.
    But cirqus voltaire have the dmd on the playfield (of course as the real one).
    For all tables i use fixe views , 1 ,1w or 2 depending on the table.
    But for this one none of these 3 choice is good.
    usually the view 2 is the one with the playfield using the most place on the screen, for this table it would be good to havbe this view not including the place for the dmd.

    Thanks for reading

    Maybe I expected to much, especially from Totan. The animations just seems less detailed. Like it was a rush job.
    Also a very very big bug in No Good Gofers. I play in view 3. When you are in a multiball situation, the view doesn't go to the full overview fast enough when a ball is brought back in play. So balls drain before you can actually see them.

    I do have the feeling ZEN didn't spend the same amount of effort on these tables as they did with the previous ones though.
