I would wait for Queen that game should be a great seller
Quoted from FalconPunch:
Shameless indeed! Someone said that guy look like Kevin a while ago and it was all good. Chuck popaduik into the mix and you have crossed the line!
Yes. I am sure all manufactures are super serious about everything and can't have a laugh. Look at how miserable Jack was when he came down to Australia.

Lighten up people. It was just meant to be a bit of fun. Do you come on pinside to have fun and have laugh. Or to get into arguments and hate? Seem like that latter is more popular.
Jack had a great time in Australia, away from all the stress of Pinball, relax and enjoyable time
Quoted from epotech:
Pure conjecture on your part unless you can back up this with facts.
Why walk away and hand over all the assets to investors, there is money involved, sold his shares or is still a share holder
There would be a contract of sale of the business, not just new directors signing on that is for sure.
It will all come out in time
What they should have done was send out a letter to buyers
Giving people an option
If you wish to stay in the new refundable deposit is $250 to max $1000
Refunding the difference already paid.
If you want them to keep full payment and are happy to do so that's fine as well
Or 3 refund in full
They would get a ton more orders and show the investors and banks they have orders on games.
Even I would order a container if they were the terms
Quoted from pinsanity:
The distributor is a current paid up commercial sponsor on that forum.
He got reinstated through the Homepin loophole after being banned for life except that Homepin has subsequently been deemed persona non grata there so how to conduct commercial sales on a commercially biased forum without drawing the arbitrary ire of the Admin?
Machines are being sold locally in Australia (approaching 40 by last count) but to new money - those who are outside of the local pinball forum clique and either don't know the backstory or the risk of being able to obtain replacement parts in the future.
Another load of dribble out of your mouth, yes we have been selling Alien and have been able to get spare parts from HP
I think the problem is software once you update the code , people seem to be having problems with io boards dropping out, etc
I don't think there has ever been a pinball I haven't been able to fix.
Yes they need a tech support system and a manual for the games and parts support, I am sure those things are all possible.
Maybe we should all setup a Facebook site, or forum for tech support and assistance to owners.
Most licenses you have 90 day window to sell remaining stock even longer if ordered before deadline
If they sold games to a 3rd party company like a distributor, the distributor can take as long as thy want to sell
Licensing is hard
I heard $100k was what Johnny Depp was asking for use of his voice for pirates
Most license holders won't pickup a pen for less than $20k
If that was the case we would not have any pinball manufacturers
Pinball turns billionaires into millionaires
Quoted from EalaDubhSidhe:
They couldn't have liquidated straight away even if they wanted to, not without repercussions, because the fly in that ointment would have been, er, me. Specifically, the situation I'd been put in and what the HMRC was trying to do about it.
What is hmrc for us idiots
Quoted from Nepi23:
Question to those of you fortunate enough to have an Alien from the latest manufacturing batch (I think it was 02/2018?):
How well have these games operated out of the box? What kind of problems have you had? Did you get support from
seller/Heighway to fix the problem or did you manage to do it yourself?
Depends on the problem, once a few minor things are resolved they play fine
Quoted from WolfManCat:
Was just playing and not sure where this screw came flying from... I think somewhere from the orbits... crazy
Also noticed last night that it shipped with a broken plastic. Guess it was just a matter of shoving these out the door before they were locked.
I think it's out of the side of zeno mech 2 screws are very loose
There is a rubber stop you might have remove
Also it could be binding in the black bushing
How about the switch adjustment
Is the shaft going back far enough to pull the ball off the magnet?
Is the jaw hitting the target brackets
Quoted from Damonator:
Finally - I’m in! Had a deposit down on #237, ended up with #227 - close enough! I haven’t even played a game yet - still tweaking things - but it’s incredible just seeing it in person as I never thought I would own one.
Can someone point me to the software and IO updates? The link previously provided wasn’t working when I tried it.
Glad it arrived safe from Australia
Quoted from cliff_clavin:
That is irrelevant. If coin taker promised the security of the deposits, then they should refund the deposits ASAP. Their 80,000 was lost a long time ago particularly on a cash flow basis. A company looks ahead and plans for a crisis like this and should have the reserves to deal with it.
Of course its easy for some person on the forum to make these blanket statements but that’s what a small business has to do to survive in this challenging environment.
Well good in theory but if they make $1000 a game thy would need to sell a lot to recover the loss
Only 2 Standard SE left and then its all game over
Get in before they are all gone, as i bet they will be $15k within the next year as demand out weighs supply.
So I have access to a stash of parts Inc complete xeno assemblys, boards etc
Pm me a list of what you need, will make up a list
yes you can bend the scoop or change the spring to reduce that but a cliffy asap
I even held it for a week without a deposit but had to sell it after that, sorry
Quoted from colonel_caverne:
Mine is build 11 April 2018. Maybe in the last batch?
Apparently all seems to work fine.
My first impressions are very good, populated playfield is really stunning, I love the inserts and the lightshow which grade reminds me Woz (best lightshow imho)
The ambience is awesome, one of the main assets. It is also pleasant to follow lcd animations on 3 screens, specially on the playfield to keep an eye on the ball.
I can’t talk about rules yet but the acid mode (the only one I played yet by lack of time) is well thought out combining shots to do and shot to not do.
Still looking for this big bolt is used to and if you need to adjust leg levelers or is it factory leveled like last Stern? It seemed to be well playable as is. [quoted image]
that looks like a flipper cabinet plate bolt
Quoted from Lamprey:
So, now that I've gotten everything setup, I've been playing a bunch more. Unfortunately, I'm having one small issue that I can fix, but was curious if anyone else is experiencing the same thing.
Sometimes, as in just about every other game, a ball stays at the every start of the trough. This then leads to a ball coming in on top of it that jams up the hole. I was just going to add some foam or something to the start to prevent this.
Not a huge deal. Just curious if anyone else is or has experienced this?
Also, the playfield is level side to side and the pitch is at 6.8 between the slings and 7.5 in front of the xenomorph.
[quoted image][quoted image]
I had that I used a 1" half round file and filed the bottom of the playfield from above though the top, but the bottom right edge, just enough for both balls to fit through the hole
we even crated the game, useless airlines, its fully insured and pinball brothers seem to have parts now
Quoted from Oneangrymo:
Ok more to my problem # 2. It only happens if its autolaunching! Not when I press the button to launch the ball. If I press the button the launch is strong and 100% . If its multi ball or a scream save, then the launcher does this nonsense.. where does that point the problem to?
check the shooter lane switch adjustment
