    Hi there!

    Not sure where else to post this since none of the other forums seem to apply.  @randr/mods:  if you feel this belongs elsewhere, please go ahead and move it.

    This concerns Zaccaria Pinball, a commercial digital pinball app that IMHO is very well done and addresses many pinball tables that are not reflected in VP/FP. The app is available on PC, Xbox One, Switch, Android mobile and coming in the not too distant future on Apple IOS (and possibly/eventually released on PS4 but don’t quote me on that!). This app has over 100 tables and IMHO the physics have gotten better and better. The developer also has added many features that reflect us fans of pincabs and VR as both are supported.

    Last year I was selected as the voice actor for the Black Belt remake table for Zaccaria Pinball. It was a wonderful experience, one that was made even better with Zaccaria giving me a lot of creative freedom in approaching the project.

    On that note, this Saturday at 4PM EST/EDT, I have been invited to participate in Zaccaria’s live Twitch.TV stream to discuss Zaccaria Pinball, my take on voice acting, etc. If you have time, come and join in, there will also be some discussions on the recent Android update which brought many new tables and features to the android platform.

    Cool! The Zaccaria Android app is my go-to for mobile pinball. The new Android update is great in-game. VP could benefit from imitating some of the features (that raytraced ball shadow is unreal!). The UX of the new menus are a real dog to get through just to play a single game but otherwise the update is awesome.

    Haven’t played the remake tables yet but I will now. Good luck on Saturday.

    Very cool! I haven’t played the android version yet but I have the platinum pack on steam. Maybe you could suggest some improvements to cabinet mode  ;-)

    Bord: what do you find frustrating for selecting tables?

     

    badazzwi:  they’ve recently updated the backglasses, much improved. What are you looking for as updates?  Realdmd support?

    Just too many clicks (taps) to get to gameplay.

    Click to start app

    Click the logo

    Click past the special offer (even though fully paid)

    Click the category (duplicate retro category should disappear for paid users)

    Click the table

    Click play in table menu

    Click play AGAIN in property menu

    Plus the play button location moves between table menu and property menu. Just a convoluted interface, especially for phone/tablet. Properties should be defaulted unless you go change them in a menu.

    In contrast the old interface IIRC was three clicks from start app to gameplay.

    That being said, the games themselves are great and play night and day better than they used to (and I liked them before).

    It’s been a bit since I fired it up. I was hoping for widescreen support on the backglass and the ability to move the dmd to a third screen.

    Will for sure tune in tomorrow Loafer!  I’ve never tried any mobile vp apps but put this on an 8″ Samsung tablet today and very interesting!  Farfalla!  And I will check out Black Belt before your stream.  Very cool you’re a part of this.  It does seem to need a lot of clicking like Bord mentioned.  Would be nice if a little smoother.  And if they want to be really hip…have the devs chat with vox about adding Cup Head.  I am a tad bummed…I saw Nautilus on the game list.  But wrong one.

    I don’t really expect to see “widescreen” support for this, in all honesty. Cabinet mode isn’t the focus of the software (although it’s really nice that it’s supported without any hoops to jump through), and outside of the remakes fidelity of the tables is such a focus that I wouldn’t be surprised if “stretching” the images to fit a 16×9 backglass monitor is an effective non-starter. It took a few versions after some people complained before they fixed issues with general portrait mode in things like the Campaign mode.

    I had it on at work and missed a lot.  But the bits I heard were very interesting.  Very cool Loafer  !!  I’m going to listen to this again soon when I can pay attention.  ….you really need a new avatar …you sound nothing like a loafer.
