    Lightbulb Will there be room brightness option in future?

    For immersiveness of being in a bar environment and the Pinball experience i would like to see an option in which it should be possible to dim the room lightning and only see the bulb flashs... flashyflash. Could it be possible to add something like that in future updates?

    Yeah, for a special light show at night. That would be nice.
    There is this old Timeshock table on iPad. Man, this table has some furious and never seen before lightning effects. I would recommend something like that.

    Gotta agree with this suggestion. I love the setting in Pinball Arcade. I usually turn the room lights down and the table lights up, and it looks great.

    Speaking of immersion. I'd love to see an option for some kind of background arcade noise or something. Playing on Xbox, the closest I can do is finding some kind of arcade sound effects on Spotify, and those are repetitive 2 minute loops. Even if they just recorded audio from other Zen tables, and edited it together with people talking. Anything to make it feel like you're actually in a room of other people playing.

    Pretty nice idea with the ambient arcade sounds running in the background. I found something on YT.

    Since my phone decided to eat my reply, let me try replying again. Sorry if I somehow reply twice... Phone is imploding on me.

    I used to use YouTube for the background audio(and that sounds like the exact video I used). But on Xbox, there's only one decent app to play YouTube videos in the background(MyTube) and it seems to have stopped letting me play background audio. So I'm kinda out of luck for that. Spotify is the best I got until either MyTube is fixed or they just add a feature in the game for ambient sound.

    Pretty good idea! Dunno if it would work backwards, since lot of environments are darkened (like Skyrim), but it could be a fun addition to future tables. We'll talk about it.

    Having played for a while and paid attention to the pretty new lighting model, I'd say the old tables don't show it off. Why would they? When they were designed, a much simpler system was in place. If the designers then had had the new system, I'm sure there would have been a multitude of meticulously positioned light sources casting interesting shadows on every table...

    So if there were any option to exaggerate the lighting effects for the previous generation tables, I think it would be welcome. Maybe lowering the ambient light would be such an option. Or picking an ambient light level and scaling factor. As long as players could quickly adjust it if they found their view impaired, I see no real issues.

    Or maybe we play with the gamma adjustment setting...

    I was going to suggest this myself. A "night mode", with the ambient light low so that the table's own lights can really shine.

    I once had the great fortune to know someone who had a Cirqus Voltaire table with LED conversion. It was a contender for the most beautiful thing man has ever conceived of, and the sight of it in a darkened room was something to behold.

    I hope the way light works in this game makes this an easy addition at some point. How it would work with those tables that have a dark game mode / mission (like Blade), is less clear.

    Any chance we can get the option back to play in 3D?
