Do you have more details on TPA's potential closure? I'm wondering how it could affect the usage of the tables after closure.

If it goes out of business you may lose tables as it is through steam for PC I think

Gimli is this an actual possibility? I thought when you buy through Steam you own the game, but I've only used Steam for a 3 or 4 games in my lifetime.

TPA claims that they will continue to support the tables that have been sold. They just won't sell any more of the Williams/Bally tables. However, there was this problem in the past that Gimli identifed... So who knows what will happen.

They have not announced closing of their business but when you can't sell 2/3 of your product, there is bound to be some impact.

ZEN grabbed the license. Graphics and physics are better, but everything else is worse and censored. Best to stay far away from it all , they will never get it right.

VPX is now unmatched, especially all the latest tables. It's not worth bothering with commercial abominations. Even old FP did it better.
