    Default Toggle Visual Extras???

    On the Williams tables, you can toggle the Visual Extras on or off! Really? Are they kidding me?

    Is there seriously anyone out there who would play with the Visual Extras toggled *off*? That's one of the main charms of FX3, and one of the main reasons to play it!

    Yes. The pinball purists use this feature, those looking for a true arcade experience, especially those that play via a cabinet with realistic physics. This simulates the table as close as can be to real-life.

    I personally am a casual player, occasionally looking for an hour or two of fun, so don't mind the effects, and enjoy the fanciful tables moreso then the Williams tables. However, I will still purchase the Williams tables, if anything to support Zen. I can certainly understand why those who choose to turn off the effects would use this feature.

    Play The Getaway with visuals on and risk having balls drain while the flaming ball spins round the thingy. Yes, you can immediately push the x button (ps4) to recenter the table, but that defeats the purpose of having them on.

    The visuals are nice to watch, but I am trying to beat scores, and for me, some of it is a bit distracting.
    Accomplishments in real life

    1. Rolled a star wars machine................ie played over 99 levels and rolled it back to level 1.
    2. Rolled Nintendo punch out, several times, same quarter.
    3. Played an entire game of dragons lair and completed it and won while blindfolded.

    I'm serious, not kidding you, when I say I toggle them off. Not only can they cause mishaps (e.g. The Getaway), but I think they look dumb. Why do I want a fire breathing dragon flying round my table?

    I can't play Medieval Madness with the visuals on as I find the dragon blocks the rollovers in my view option and I find the ones on The Party Zone also distracting.

    It's always nice to have options I think!

    Hey Depeche, nice signature image.

    I don't mind the extra visuals as they are like Zens trademark touch to the tables as long as they don't interfere with play, but then there is always the option to easily turn them off.

    Thank you McLovin, glad you like it.

    well, I toggle them off actually. Less distraction.
    Sometimes I wish I could do the same on some of the other tables too.
    There are times when things get into the way and things get hard to see.
