    It's coming, there's just a lot of grunt work involved in rearranging the UI to look good in portrait. The effort right now is going into bug fixing.

    It makes me feel a little better that the tables will probably be on sale when portrait mode finally makes it in.

    While I wouldn't cry if the game came out without portrait mode, now that I have an Asus PB278Q that includes it's own tilt in the stand... I do think the feature would be neat.

    It is coming. They are showing portrait mode at the pinball expo in Chicago in a few days.

    I will check it out at the expo in Chicago on Saturday and report back unless someone who's going earlier beats me to it.

    Like on Android, you could play TPA on your tablet and use the phone as the DMD which could communicate using Bluetooth.

    I have one of those too.
    Do they allow you to switch to portrait now in the beta? I haven't tried for a couple of versions. I know it wasn't allowed in earlier releases.

    Yes but you have to be in Fullscreen Windowed Mode, at least with my hardware.

    Jeff, the XArcade is the newer version of my HannaHo HotRod. Xarcade bough HannaHo out some time ago, IIRC. Mine is so old it is a passthrough keyboard device, LOL. The newer ones are USB

    Got my moneys worth for sure, bought it around 1999 or so.

    Later bud,

    I knew there was a reason I did not get rid of my old 48" LCD Sony TV.

    Well, they just deleted that post and rephrased it:

    "and an update soon with portrait display mode!"

    At least we now know that it's just around the corner.

    I'm not huge into this, but my PB278Q monitor that I got for doing visual effects monitor does rotate so I'll try it out for the novelty. I don't think I'm about to adjust the VESA mounts on any of my TVs to change their orientation 90' though. :P

    Edit: Also, entertained by how they said it's coming 'Today'. Sometimes I feel the PR and the Dev people are on different pages. I have this mental image of Mike reading the Facebook account and going 'Today!? It's not today! OH GOD THOSE PEOPLE ON THE FORUMS ARE GOING TO EAT ME ALIVE. D:'

    So is this more or less all they need for at least a barebones cabinet mode? Obviously it wouldn't be doing things like routing the backglass/DMD to other screens like a full setup would, but if you had a custom controller and a PC hooked up, you could pretty much lay a TV on a slab in portrait mode and play a pseudo-cabinet like game of TPA, right?

    Glad to see that an update is coming soon, as I'd really like to have my analog nudge function back. There is always hope that it could be included with a patch to add portrait mode.
