Well my order for a Standard is in and I can not wait till it arrives.

Sounds like it will be only a few weeks.

#11939 2 years ago
Quoted from Pale_Purple:

I think the smiley face was a tip to the post being sarcastic. It doesn't seem like there are any 'true' production games out right now.

Nope was not sarcastic at all just happy. Games are shipping....will have it in a few weeks at my house.

Order was from Cointaker, still a few left in the coming shipment.

#11941 2 years ago

I'll can wait if needed. I have plenty of machines to play to keep be busy.

#13358 2 years ago

Had my SE on order for a while and thinking of finding an ID4 to go next to it.

Just a thought....

#13687 2 years ago
Quoted from Pale_Purple:

This was eight weeks ago, did you ever get your game?

I am supposed to be in the first order and we all know that they have not shipped yet due to the issues that are being addressed. I also have an AFMr coming so not really worried about waiting, as long as I have it for the Cle Show I'm good.

#13690 2 years ago
Quoted from Pale_Purple:

When is the Cleveland show?

Early Sept....but here is hoping I get mine WAY before then.

#13712 2 years ago
Quoted from ledge:

your saying Cointaker hasnt received them ?

I can not say for sure. They got the first set that were betas is all I know, some were at the Texas show.

Alien inbound! Just got off the phone with the shipping company and it is scheduled for delivery Monday afternoon.

#15782 1 year ago
Quoted from spfxted:

Is that one of the CoinTaker machines?

Yes it is from CoinTaker.

#15785 1 year ago
Quoted from spfxted:

Is a Box Opening Event in our future??

I'll take some pics and the post them up.

Going to get it setup in the garage before it goes in the house. Just easier that way with the moving cart.

Well this showed up last Monday. But the glass broke in transit.

Working on cleaning out and getting a new glass.

#15954 1 year ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

Should be okay once you clean/vacuum right? Or is broken glass more problematic?

No should be OK once cleaned out. Just taking my time not to miss the one piece of glass that would inevitably get dragged over the playfield screen.

#15963 1 year ago
Quoted from sed6:

Did it come from Cointaker?

Yes it did and everything is being taken care of as always.

#15965 1 year ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Did you vacuum it out yet?

Started to should have the playfield done and out tomorrow hopefully.

#15968 1 year ago
Quoted from Axl:

Sucks that the glass broke. Luckily you can easily remove the whole playfield, that should make it easier.

Got most of the easy to reach stuff sucked up. Going to have a friend help shake the playfield upside down to get any strays out.

All I know is my Alien is playing OK at the Cleveland pinball show. XENO is disabled due to the glass issue but everything else is working and code 0.98 is not bad, can't wait for 1.00.

#16517 1 year ago
Quoted from legionsoup:

What's the glass issue?

Broke during shipping. Might want to look at the older posts....

#16520 1 year ago
Quoted from legionsoup:

Oh - I saw that from before. I didn't connect the two since glass breaking during shipping and the Xeno head seem like different issues. I thought it was something new that I hadn't heard of. Since I'm getting this game, I definitely want to know all the issues that are in store!
Thinking about it - how is the Xeno head related to the glass breaking during shipping?

Machine ships vertical and the glass came crashing down on everything in the back of the machine when it broke. We had to take every piece off the playfield to get all the glass out.

#16522 1 year ago
Quoted from sed6:

And didn't reattach the xeno I guess???

No the mech is not registering right and the servo must have stripped a tooth or two. Got a new unit on the way...

Well I still needed two IO boards to get my machine back up and running. Anyone got any spares? Dam

#23085 9 months ago

So I have been out of the loop on all the Alien stuff lately but are there any updates on replacement IO boards?

Two of mine are bad, I'd even send them out to get fixed if possible.

My game has been down since last September......

Quoted from WeirPinball:

If anyone wants to get on the list for a new/replacement computer for alien (drop right in includes memory and ssd loaded with software), let me know. I'd like to get another 3-4 people to make the order so I can turn them for $375 each again.
Scott

I'm in for a spare computer. Getting close to having a spare or more for everything.

Quoted from mavantix:

When you get your order, post pics! ...and curious what revision number they're labeled too.

I have the full set of scamatics for all of the large boards. If someone can make them let me know and I'll pass them on.

Of course I'll be getting a set for my spares collection.

Quoted from iceman44:

How many people would be in for a full petg plastic set?
I missed the last free play notice.
I've got the files to get some made if its feasible economically.

I'd be in for a set for sure.
