    I guess the whole thing is a disaster so far. I can’t even install SPA because my Avira antivirus picks up a SternPinballArcade.exe contains: TR/Crypt.ZPACK.Gen2 trojan/virus/malware. I’ve heard that the performance is awful. SPA repeates tables from the original PA. Plus, Ghostbusters is nowhere to be found. Doesn’t really matter, they are busy right now trying to fix Star Trek, AC/DC and Mustang, LMAO, what a fail from Farsight. Pfft, they still haven’t fixed Scared Stiff on the PS3 and probably will never take care of the issue. So far on Steam all I hear are people asking for refunds. I wonder if they have a Farsight of seeing no more money from me or other customers? Anyway, Im glad I have all of you to thank for these great tables/pins or I would be screwed.

    I have visited the Stern Pinball Arcade Page ( http://www.sternpinballarcade.com ), and i wonder, why is there a “SEGA Frankenstein” Screenshot ?
    But Ghostbusters would be nice … hmm

    Yeah, Sega sold all of it’s assets to Gary Stern a long time ago. Yeah, Ghostbusters would be cool. Tom T is almost done with Ghostbusters (I think)!

    TPA is simply nowhere near as good as Visual Pinball….

    But it would be the only way to get new games on our cabs until someone sorts out SPIKE.

    I can give a bunch of reasons why PA on the PS3 and PC suck. I could kick myself for spending over $100 on PA tables in the past. Now PA has even gotten worse by putting out their own original table of a Dr. Who pin, pfft.

    Their Bally Dr. Who version is pretty good, other than having PA physics (not that the physics are horrible, but they are way too easy).  It’s the only thing keeping me from removing it from my cab.

    The PA designed Dr. Who is absolutely awful.

    I could probably type paragraph after paragraph of what’s wrong with the PA tables, but I don’t feel like typing that much right now. The PA tables are nice to look at but that’s where it ends. I could pick apart every table from Farsight and find major issues (most never fixed). I’ll give a few examples. Scared Stiff has a two ball problem (LOL), both are on the playfield at the same time, the ROM voice says look up at the backglass spider wheel, then you get up, down, up, down on and on from the backglass to the table because it’s not programmed correctly. On all of the tables the ball bounces like you bought a rubber ball out of a gumball machine. The ball comes back off of the rubbers toward the flippers like a super sonic rocket on most tables. Diner plays like you’re on crack. Fish Tales, the ball goes down the outlanes like a greased pig. Twilight Zone and Rescue 911 have upper flipper delay, so it makes those flippers pretty much useless. PA on every table leaves way to much gap between the flippers. If you match PA’s table flippers to the real machines there is more of a gap, well, so much for real table experience. I believe PA did the flippers this way on purpose to make the tables harder. On all of the PA tables the ball flies back off a flipper catch, back up the outlanes and out of them like a cannon. I could go on and fill a whole page in this forum about PA problems and issues. It’s my fault for wasting money on their tables and I regret doing so. I have these PA DLC tables 49, 48, 44, 43, 42, 39, 32, 29, 27, 26, 24, 22, 21, 19, 15, 8, 7, 6, 4, 3, 2, 1 and the launch tables. All of this is just not my opinion, it’s the truth. All thirteen tables that I have downloaded from vpinball play way better than any table from Farsight. To end, you’re right, some tables are just too easy, like Frankenstein, I can hit the ramp about fifty times in a row with my eyes closed.
