    Nice! Looking forward to mastering the "real" tricks after being so used to playing with zen physics for the last 8 years. I must say, the first thing that struck me as I was watching the demonstration is how much better (for lack of a more precise term ) the real life flippers sound compared to zen's version. It will be great if that can be better matched.

    Interesting point cloda...

    Although, Ironically...despite the fact that Zen's tables have been "fantastic" over the years, I have always found their "table operation sounds" to be the most authentic. Despite the fact that a different studio was making the "real" tables, I think Zen's table sounds stand out as being quite realistic.

    Of course your point was vs. a real table, but I just wanted to say that they have done a good job on those types of sounds eg... ball rolling sounds, ball sounds when the balls fall from a rail, the flippers etc. have always sounded more real than the other game lol.

    I'm pretty happy with the Zen sounds, but like I said, it just really struck me how visceral the real table sounds were in comparison. I still remember (I think around the time of Ms Splosion Man in 2011) when they updated the flipper and other sounds to the current more mechanical sounds. It was a big improvement over the previous sounds.
