--Jeff

#174 4 years ago

Make sure you send the form as well as make the down payment.

I got a fast response from Andrew

- Jeff

#182 4 years ago

Downo ad the form. Open it in word. Fill it out. Save it as pdf. Email it over.

Easy As pie.

#425 but trying to switch to #223.

Iceman. If you get one that will be 3 LE in Texas that I know of

-Jeff

Labnip , you know you're welcome over anytime were actually in town at the same time.

This Alien machine will be a change as currently my latest machine is 78

Quoted from aeonblack:

A little off-topic (to the pinball anyways), but check out these new Alien posters by Tyler Stout that Mondo is going to be selling today.

I saw those. Im just pissed that i missed the 35mm screening downtown when these were released at the theater

#LV223 here. I cant wait to play this thing.

Is there an option to have the fog machine spit acid instead of fog?

--Jeff

#1338 3 years ago
Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

I don't know if this was a typo, but I think that would be a cool idea to number the Limited Editions as LV-###, as a nod to the moon where the first two films took place

I tried to get 426 but it was taken. 223 is the birthplace of the alien. At least according to prometheus

Quoted from Wickerman2:

So scores on the small LCD and animations on large?

Currently still mirrored. Plan for more on future games

-Jeff

#2407 3 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Here's the plan for the art going forward: I'm working on the playfield art now. It's not a mass of black and green, I'm trying a lot of other ideas

I really like the lower playfield option we discussed. Really cool IMHO

-Jeff

#2441 3 years ago

OK so.... after sitting with Andrew and Aurich this weekend and getting to see some of the "non public" things I only have a few things to say

1. If the pf turns out as expected it will exceed everyone's expectations.
1.5 The egg pops are freaking wow looking.
2. I like cats
3. OMG OMG OMG OMG
4. Looks like Andrew is coming to TPF 2016 in March so yall come on out.

-Jeff

#2496 3 years ago

Just wait till the whole package comes out and all aspects from both films are shown along with integration of screen clips and intros. I think yall will be floored.

I especially liked the animated? intros. Oh also Jonsey

-Jeff

#2498 3 years ago

Iceman, Come up to Austin for a beer and we can discuss

-Jeff

#2503 3 years ago
Quoted from PinballRulez:

I really would like to know this as I have the small LCD on order and that could be a waste of money

Andrew stated you can keep the small or upgrade to the big for what ever the difference is. Not determined yet on price but his guesstimate was reasonable

Does anyone have a clear image of the backglass? I can't seem to find it on their website? http://heighwaypinball.com/gamenew/

For the LE I was under the impression you get both sets of art . Standard and LE regardless of screen chosen.

Jeff

I'm thinking the LE backglass should be something g along these lines. Aliens, Ripley in her underwear, Jonsey somewhere in there

Quoted from Zampinator:

Quoted from PinballRulez:

it has some resemblance with the MU/TH/UR 6000 interface. However, the dashboard in the pin is full color

Id like to see the boot sequence in mono like in the move and then move into full color when the game is booted up.

What do yall remember about the callouts? Did you hear any actors voices?

Im going to meet the Aliens cast in 2 weeks and quiz them on their involvement with the project

Quoted from Nevus:

That was Weaver signing the poster?

Couldn't get a photo of that. Not in the rules but you can see her signature in the middle of the poster

-Jeff

#6523 2 years ago

Signouney signed her own signature. You were not allowed to take pictures.

The girl signing the poster is Carrie Henn who played Newt

#6529 2 years ago

I mentioned Heighway. She said she knew about it and had to sign off on it. Take that for what it's worth. Read nothing into it.
It was a 30 second conversation

-Jeff

#6533 2 years ago

I'll tell you this. She was super nice as was everyone. Go watch my Facebook video I posted of the Q &A. I caught the last 20 min of it.

-Jeff

#6543 2 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

WTF is up with Newt! She still an actress?

Carrie (Newt) is now a school teacher with 2 kids living in the midwest. Her daughter is now the same age as when she was in the movie.
Her brother who was in the Directors Cut has done 1 con with her in London.
She said the best part of working with her brother was there was a scene where she got to hit him with a stuffed doll. She layed into him and her mother who was off screen could do nothing about it!

Quoted from Mr68:

And I think these unanswered questions will linger for you and create doubt.

Doubt about what? In all honesty Heighway has successfully produced The Bacardi game and Full Throttle. Both of these games have shipped and been well received.

Are you doubtful that he can do it again? Because of a website listing dissolved companies? That sir is crazy. Any true entrepreneur has dissolved or closed companys, changed names, been thru money losing periods. Hard work and dedication get you thru those moments.

We the public have seen the prototype Alien however briefly in the youtube video.

Its real, its being made and its coming fast and IMHO you are just here stirring the pot for some unknown agenda

Yes, that's a valid point. I will look into the possibilities of live streaming it. In any case, I will have somebody to press the button at the same time

Quoted from DJKYrtgfsRFw:

Not only doesn't it have a traditional plunger, but it doesn't have a skill shot either

you apparently cant or wont read.

Quoted from Ferret:

There are 7 distinct skill shots that can be made from the right flipper. You don't have to select in advance, but the timer is short so you only have one chance to make the shot. Each shot awards some number of points (depending on the relative difficulty of the shot) as well as an associated award or power-up. (e.g. shooting the left orbit increases spinner value for the rest of the ball... shooting a weapon target instantly awards a weapon)
Additionally, making three different skill shots over the course of a game gives a large Super Skill point bonus.

You should take your own advice

Quoted from PACMAN:

Ahem... Predator had prototypes and lots of pictures of parts.

Kevin never had produced 1 commercial game.
Heighway has produced and distributed 2.
Huge difference regardless of what ever the production numbers are

#8545 2 years ago
Quoted from thewool:

Also did anyone here play much of the 'Alien' game as opposed to Aliens? In the videos so far it looks very much like Aliens is dominating the theme...

I got games in in both modes suffice to say that the Alien mode is every bit as Alien as the Aliens Mode is Aliens.

As for production im pretty lax but i would like to see games start shipping this year

Come on, cat

I dont understand why there is so much confusion...

currently this is what comes with the LE stock from Heighway.
http://www.heighwaypinball.com/alien/
Until Heighway announces differently ( i.e. Light blades in cabinets) this is the matrix

Cointaker may have a different configuration but that is their deal not Heighways

In addition if you click BUY you can see pricing that is directly from Heighway.
Go to the store and you can see the price of extras such as fiber opt ramps and the 27" screen price

Personally i am going to go the route of making some vinyl alien side art to trick out the cabinet. I will give no fucks if that art stays on if i swap out a FT playfield to play for awhile

Quoted from Aurich:

The team is on board with my suggestion, but until we test it we don't want to announce it. But when I saw the complaint about the airlock I felt like I wanted to address it, and say "yes, you're right, we hear you, we're going to make it better".

I hope its a P 5000 powerloader that spins around.. It fits in theme and fits in size / scale

After being almost 2 years late,

The Game was only announced 2 years ago. Quit exagerating

#9990 2 years ago
Quoted from Cheeks:

Would saying 21 months late make you feel better?

maybe

I think you made my point tho. noone in their right mind believed it was going to be April 2015.
I know at least in software development 3 months is a lifetime n a product cycle

Hmm what is this about????

#12234 1 year ago

Ok so i may not post pics publicly. What Andrew showed were examples of artwork that was either scrapped or art that hasnt been decided yet.
The art is solid and the audience consensus was that they liked the aliens xeno for the LE.
I like what i see but since there is no official approved art ill leave it to that
-Jeff

#12235 1 year ago

Ok i cant be a dick tease. I like this one best out of what was shown. Nothing official , nothing approved.

Quoted from wcbrandes:

So no one is worried at all this thing hasn't ramped up and shipped. LE art work and small fixes are the reason? Am I missing something?

Quoted from HeighwayPinball:

We have shipped out a good quantity of games and continue to do so every week. We have a good number of customers with Alien games in 6 different countries right now.
For example, 3 more games left only 5 minutes ago - please see the photo below.

You want a conspiracy theroy? I wonder how many put in money with no intention of ever buying and the express purpose of pulling out to make the company fail.
Ive been in since it was announced and have no intentions of pulling out.
Chil and wait ,pull out , i give a shit just STFU.

Owner had armor powdercoated

Are you claiming the LE photos are fake? If so please explain the LE art work. While delays are not the greatest news , I am still stoked to get an LE and am biding my time

- Jeff

#14313 1 year ago
Quoted from DerGoetz:

Nice, you 100% ignore the problems I have as you could not care less it seems, and then you don't pay attention to the photos in this thread

I acknowledge the problems we are seeing and i feel for you with your support for your FT . Where did the LE artwork come from?

#14316 1 year ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Either way Jeff, I'm getting tired of all the lies and BS.
Guys asking for refunds being promised all kinds of crap to stay in, begging not to bail

Yeah. I would like a statement from Heighway too. I dont like the radio silence.

Quoted from DerGoetz:

At what point will you acknowledge that the guy got an "LE" but most likely had to powdercoat himself?

Ok i might buy that. Its a bit conspiracy theroy but the evidince so far leans that direction

I think the point is that there should be one thread about Heighway and one about Aliens. While this thread has become a cauldron of shit i still think there should be 2 threads.
Maybe the best course of action would to be to open an Alien machine thread to complement the WTF is going on with Heighway thread and closing this mess.

in the other thread i count 4 having not received refunds yet. Suffice to say that's only on the pinside community and those that post.

I have on the contrast seen about 6 having received the refunds in full. This bodes well and speaks volumes in my book

--Jeff

edit-- my numbers may be a couple off but the point still holds

Current difference is the art work plus all extras are included with the LE

This one compiles

He also sent me a color swatch for the armor. I can post it later if anyone is interested.

yes pls

#16382 1 year ago

How about. "I want my LE and if you don't want one dont order one."
The LE is not the cause of the delays. From what I gather its parts delays and restructuring.
The LE is a deal if you are going to order all the extras anyways. We will see how they handle the fiber optic deal.

-Jeff

#16469 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

Well CT just told me they're waiting on an update from their broker but latest is pickup this Sunday.

This is promising and fits within the boundaries of "New Heighways" timeline.

The fact that some think that they can jump the line for an LE and get a one off is just annoying and elitist.

Wait till the machines are in. If you don't want to put down money then wait, but if you get pissed cause your special one off dealio didn't work that's your problem.

Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

Why stay in & continue to take the risk when everything is taken into account? Because locked in at lower price? To get your game first? At this point it's incomprehensible to me.

dream theme. Locked in LE number . Lower price.

I believe games are coming and im just going to wait it out. No stress, no harm , no foul

--Jeff

#16508 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

This is the company that still has not sent an Alien head fore the game here.

Nope. They are sending playfield and computer replacements.
If it was a huge scam they wouldn't have issued refunds. Afaik Toads is still waiting for one. All other pinside members have been refunded.

This isn't a conspiracy as much as Pinside would like. Its more ineffective management and missed expectations.

Quoted from TheLaw:

I know they aren;t really making games now most likely but what a shit show even still

Really? You know this how? Everything points to the fact that they are making games

Quoted from Nethawk86:

here we go again with more excuses and missed deadlines and cointaker still not fulfilling promises on calling me or keeping me informed like they said they would

This sux and is part of the frustration

#16569 1 year ago
Quoted from SunKing:

Per Melissa cointaker as of Monday, Sep 11, "There was a holdup with the shipment because the ramps were not right. All is good now, and 21 games are on their way as well as parts".

Do yall really think Cointaker is lying? I would suspect if they didnt have a tracking number that they would say "we dont know when" ALl of you that KNOW that there are no games being shipped need to go talk to Alex Jones and drink more Kool aid

--Jeff

#16586 1 year ago
Quoted from SadSack:

Aren't you sophisticated.?. I've had a sudden flashback to the jPop thread

nah im not sophisticated at all. I just try to look at the positive and give people the benefit of the doubt.

ill admit i was wrong and there are no games being shipped as stated. Hopefully a better update will have games shipped friday

How bout we lay off the LE bitchfest until they actually announce what is going to be included. As far as we know it will be mounted in an exact replica of the Nostromo. Seeing as the new investors group redid the computer, ramps, xeno mech, I suspect there will be some changes for the LE also. If the LE ships with the standard monitor bezel I will be highly disappointed. As an "in since day 1" guy in holding the line and think we will all be suprised.

Anyone going to Expo? It would be an opportune time to show off an LE but I'm not holding my breath.

-Jeff
