    Default hot seat

    zen physics are really better than classic, is there a way to play hot seat (2/3/4 players) with those physics instead of classic ?

    I second this. My partner and I would love to play hotseat with zen physics. I get why some like the new physics, but they really are not for us and are really, really not for multiplayer party type situations that we use hotseat for.

    I would hope for the option for either type of physics. With regard to your point on hotseat and for multiplayer party type, I would actually disagree. Once you know a zen table well, games (and balls) can last forever. It gets quite boring after a while if you have to wait for 4 players to get through a game. Wit the classic physics, games are short and intense and you can rather have multiple games rather than ending up just having one long game that you eventually just quit because it takes too long.

    Although Cloda is certainly right about some games lasting forever, thus making the other players bored as hell (I remember not being able to lose my game of Ms. Splosion Man, I kept getting more and more extra balls and my father eventually left the room), like him I also think the choice of physics nevertheless shouldn't be limited to 1 player mode.

    Master idea is, leave people choose whatever physics they like in whatever circumstances.

    I prefer Classic physics for HotSeat over the Zen physics. Quicker games means quicker turns and is just more fun overall.

    But there definitely should be an option to let you choose what physics you want to play on.

    So you agree with Cloda and I.

    Having a choice would definitely be the best option. Admittedly we are pretty new to pinball, so I can see the other side of this for the vets.
