Quoted from starbase:

PS4 on a good screen is pretty stunning and runs smooth as butter. The steam version for pc seems good but it does not look as good as the ps4 and is pc speed dependent.
I have the full set for ps4.

PC with DX11 looks pretty good. Also it has portrait mode which is really nice if you can rotate your monitor vertically.

Quoted from Slim64:

Did they change how it works? I thought it used to be only licensed to the machine it was originally purchased on, ie...I bought mine through steam. But can't install what's purchased on my new computer.

Steam purchases transfer to new computers, you just can't play the same game simultaneously on different computers using the same Steam account.

Quoted from jonesjb:

Won’t it get better with patches?

What incentive would they have to improve the software? They can only sell it until June 30th and they already have your money.

Quoted from Heretic_9:

Thanks for your detailed reply.
Why would you want a vertical view ? That sounds like the up-to-down display you see on flat panel monitors, above the machines at some tournaments.

Because pinball machines are longer than they are wide, and it gives you a good view of the entire table. I find portrait mode pretty unplayable.

Quoted from Bendit:

You mean you find landscape mode pretty unplayable?

D'oh. Yes, that's what I intended, thanks.

Quoted from Heretic_9:

Still looking for reply to the latter part of my post #259 . . . .

Here's a link to how the tables are bundled.


You're going to have to go to the respective stores to find out how much they cost.

Quoted from Heretic_9:

Will the now-vanished TPA titles be turning up on eBay (like various other software, much of it non-current), if so perhaps at inflated asking prices ? Or is there some sort of registration mechanism involved which would render that useless now ? There were repeated references in this thread to titles that were bought, but apparently not owned for good, because they later "went away."

I'm not sure how you could sell The Pinball Arcade for the PC without selling your entire STEAM account, or selling a cracked/pirated PC copy.
