Show notes

05:30 - Haggis Pinball Centaur Remake

This new remake from Australian boutique pinball manufacturer Haggis Pinball is absolutely beautiful.

But at A$15,000 for the "Premium" and A$25,000 for the "Limited Edition" are they going to sell any? Yes, and probably in a matter of hours after they go on sale.

19:20 - Poll Results

To get these contenders we did an initial vote between Chris and I on each of the listed categories on Zen Original tables only.

Then Chris put the selections into public polls on Twitter, Discord, and Reddit.

The results are in!

Vote percentages, and which tables we selected are in brackets. If the numbers are the same there was some anomaly that we point out in the show.

1:04:00 - Top three wishes for add-ons to the Pinball FX platform

Chris and I list off our Top 3 things we’d like changed on the platform.

  • Remappable buttons and shoulder button swaps as secondary flippers or special buttons.

  • Adjustable tilt sensitivity so you can do a full nudge but only tilt a percentage of a full tilt. *

  • Fan Cave environment for Williams Pinball tables like Star Wars Pinball VR.

  • Be able see leaderboards for all play modes once you select a table from the My Tables menu.

  • Be able to select different play moded without having to exit the table and go back in.

1:18:00 - Notes on all 20 new Zen Originals

Because we are well over time already, this is about 30 minutes of Chris and I sharing our candid thoughts (both praise and constructive criticism) about all the 20 Zen Originals that were released since the start of Epic Games Early Access until the recording date.

You’ll hear a recurring theme through out commentary about all these tables where we think improvements could be made. See if you can pick what it is and tell us in the comments.
