I assume these pics are old news but it's the first time I've seen close ups

They don't make a Taurus equivalent but it's similar to a Mondeo/Fusion

I don't know many children that can afford an $8000 pinball machine

Quoted from Ferret:

Progress is obviously slower than what anyone wants, but there *is* progress... a development machine has finally landed in the programmer's house! For me this counts as the start of the final stretch...

It's missing the 2main toys and the sling toys?

A refund should take a matter of hours. Over a month is taking the piss

I'm sincere when I say that I hope Alien is a roaring success and is the making of Heighway Pinball. I'd like one myself one day

But it takes about 60 seconds to log into an online bank account and make a payment. Andy can find the time to respond to criticism in this thread very quickly but not to pay back deposits because of massively missed deadlines? Something doesn't add up?

#10636 3 years ago

Looking good! It's worth taking time to get the game working well as I can see you selling 1000+

An extra 2-3 months of troubleshooting is worth it in the long run

Quoted from NPO:

If I was not relocating to Eglin AFB on Saturday, I was SO make the drive to come see this game right now. All about the timing...!!!

I spent a week on Eglin when I was a soccer coach in 2005. Fort Walton Beach is lovely and I met a lovely local girl who worked in Hooters! Good memories

Quoted from Wanderers:

Some great replies, I like the one that said if you can afford both buy both. Ha I wish

Buy the GB, play it for a year until Alien had all the kinks worked out and then sell the GB to buy an Alien

Art looks good. It would annoy me having 35th anniversary on it though when the film came out 38years ago!

Quoted from spfxted:

Could you leave it over the magnet as well?

If you look at the wear on the shadow magnet I'd imagine the Mylar would be gone in a week on alien

Whilst I think Andy is making a mistake not addressing all of the concerns people have, the worst thing buyers can do is start asking for refunds en masse. Surely they taught you about the Wall Street Crash at school?

Most of his money is likely tied up in parts on shelves or waiting to buy parts for new games. Chucking out $6k on refunds every day does not favours in getting this game made. People knew the risk with the pre order model before they paid their money

#14434 3 years ago

The more people that ask for refunds the quicker this is going down the Predator route
