No accurate emulation, "pinmame cab" options, or view options either. Not only that but most tables will never get a pinball arcade release due to licensing issues. I mean when the Addams Family, the best selling table of all time, isn't on the list of tables, then something is wrong. Pinball Arcade is ok, but it's more like the console ports of arcade titles from back in the day... close but no cigar.
