Quoted from dr_nybble:

PinballBuzz do you have the rights to use any of that artwork on your site? (I seem some art from https://www.menyhei.com)

PinballBuzz has been documented stealing photos from the homebrew section on pinside for use in his videos. So it's not outside the realm of possibilities

What a bunch or Clowns!!!
The trolls once again and ruin it for everyone with fictitious accusations in theft, racism and scamming with absolutely zero evidence to back any of it up.
And where are the moderators..... you guessed it sleeping at the wheel once again. What a colossal waste of time posting anything on this forum!
I guess any updates are better left to our website, YouTube and Instagram accounts.
Later……. Trolls....

Come on man, we all saw you lift a render from a homebrewer's project and then put it into your video without any sort of permission

Don't gaslight us. Just own up to it for fuck sake.

And remember kids, Pinball Buzz is not at all a troll

Quoted from PinballBuzz:

Who did we scam? Please show your proof before posting total lies. It’s morons like you that ruin this industry.
Pretty large homebrew project.

Good luck with your business, buddy! Still waiting for those 10 volumes, promised refunds, and your Todd Tuckey “unauthorized biography

Keep in mind deeproot also posted tons of photos “mid production” and even had flipping machines, and yet nothing of value was ever produced.

Same thing hear. Keep moving the goalposts, flashy “announcements” full of fluff, no substance...

Quoted from blueberryjohnson:

Fruit-O-Matics heavily fleshed out complete with a Dialed In style comic book.
https://www.pinballadventures.com/fruit-o-matics/
We also now have the game Forsaken Ninja
https://www.pinballadventures.com/ninja-pinball-2/
NickBuffaloPinball will be so excited.

Those are old, same titles and artwork from 3+ years ago now.

Note to moderators: This isn’t just to dunk on some random “new” company. This has all the hallmarks of a scam and zero legitimacy, and we are seeing members already falling victim to this conman, and giving him the benefit of the doubt ignoring 3 years of evidence in this thread. Endless delays and teasers with no real substance. Stolen photos and videos, designs, ambitious claims of preorders. Yet not a single game has been brought to a show. This is getting out of hand with endless delays and excuses.
If Andrew actually brings a PLAYABLE game to a pinball show, I will retract my statements. It’s time we start calling a spade, a spade.

TLDR:
*Clutches pearls and goes home*

Updates better left to places where you can control the narrative instead of have to talk about the truth, I think is what you mean

The previous artwork speaks for itself.

Not that I believe a single finished game will ever ship, but if they do make any I'm in for $20 to get one for Todd to chuck off a roof.

Wow I had never seen this before. Treating Todd like that is really shitty. I've remained fairly neutral in this whole thing but Pinball Buzz needs to STFU and actually produce something rather than dumpster diving on message boards and creating ill will.

#461 1 year ago
Quoted from Knapp_Arcade:

creating ill will

Literally his entire marketing strategy at this point which is mind-boggling.

I never got my reprinted book either fwiw.

Is this the company that had a meet the team section that had like a janitor, facilities worker, and package wrapper listed alone with the owners entire family?

Despite your efforts to delete the offending stuff and pretend it never existed, luckily some of us saved it for the predictable gaslighting.

Quoted from PinballBuzz:

And where are the moderators..... you guessed it sleeping at the wheel once again.

The mods are doing their job. Like the many other scams...errr....I mean upstart companies they've seen throughout the years, they're just letting it play out, letting the "CEO"s own words come back to haunt them.

Quoted from PinballBuzz:

I guess any updates are better left to our website, YouTube and Instagram accounts.

You tell 'em! Who needs the most popular pinball website with almost 100,000 members?! You keep that valuable information on your socials where it will be seen by dozens of people! Maybe go in with Ball-a Rama and start a new pinball website?

BTW... Any truth to the rumor that you got a cease and desist from the Don Knotts estate over your since deleted video?

#465 1 year ago

So which of you bought out all the Pinball Adventure products? 4 of 5 out of stock or on backorder.

There's a whole long thread on him trashing Todd after the Vegas trip. He's not a good guy. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/todd-n-tuckey-book-deal-1o-volumes

Here's hoping you and Pinball News put him on the pay-no-mind list.

This one is a bit shorter and gets to the point quicker too but really both should be read, plus just Andrew's post in general around the forum are generally just eyebrow raising.

In all honesty I remember looking at the pause button and thinking of a few times I could have used that. I'm not paying $30 for 10 cents worth of 3d printed crap though from a design I'm sure he just stole off thingaverse or someone else, and if I was going to do it I certainly wouldn't be buying it from Andrew.

Somewhat of an aside, but if you have a Spike 2 machine there is essentially a "pause" button you can employ by opening the coin door. But first you need to set the Standard Adjustment for Coindoor Ball Saver to Yes. This is adjustment #61 for me on Deadpool.

If you turn that on and open the coin door the game will remember how many balls you had in play and when you close it they will be returned to the shooter lane.

No problem, I just recently found that myself.

My previous method was to hit a scoop and then open the coin door. Who has time for that!?

#474 1 year ago

Hot wheels and Oktoberfest also “ball save on coin door open”.

#475 1 year ago

Bunch of cheaters . But it is a nice feature, I've used it on my Maiden before during epic games and the doorbell rings haha

Gnassel came up with a neat little plug-in gadget so you don’t even have to open the door! It could be cleaned up a little to utilize the coin door saver option.

Quoted from Gnassel:

A friend had asked me if I could build something to stop Stern pinball machines that are in the living room from blinking. Because that would disturb him in the long run.
I thought about it a lot and wanted to program a microprocessor that switches the pinball machine into service mode after a while, so that the inserts don't blink anymore.
In the end I realized it differently. By chance I noticed something completely different during testing and I think it's really good.

Maybe you like it? I'll sell it for $500 or you build it yourself. Kidding!

And you can also do it as the ball drains in the outlane. Just have to beat the ball hitting the trough switch. Puts the ball right back into the shooter lane. Just sayin'...

I will never forget when Andrew would not put the QR codes in my book (I figured as people were reading my stories, they would get to a QR Code that would reference what I was talking about. Then they would hover their phone over it and watch the video or clip from my channel that I was referring to. Well, that was quickly shot down...as you can read below!

I am willing to put at the back of the book where we are creating a reference to the games that you have explained the code. However this will determine on the space available.
A quick poll of our office of 12 staff, everyone said that the codes are outdated and that they would never use them and only two staff have ever used them in their life since you need an app.
We will see what space we have available.

HMMMM...."QR Codes are OUTDATED" and that his "staff" of experts "would never use them!"

ALL was well when this special video came out years ago--when I was going to write a series of TEN books. I thought all of you may now want to remember this total debacle that this turned into. The original text I wrote appears below. DO NOT buy this book or any others...I have received NOTHING in THREE YEARS---I am supposed to be paid $10 per book sold. Todd

This video is unlisted, but you can view it with this special link...it runs ten minutes...I thought I was going to finally hit it big, and instead, rolled in shit and tossed out with the Garbage! And YES...I am BITTER.

#482 1 year ago

And of course this!

This comment about me appeared at the end of one of his Punny Factory videos showing "production of the game" of which he has deleted, because of all the fake footage of his "operation". Notice in the top left of the picture that the video is about his "White Board" of Punny Factory...doesn't he know its a WHITE WOOD? I mean, NO ONE but Andrew calls it a "White BOARD" and this guy is going to make Pinball Machines? And YES, I am still BITTER

We like you, Todd. Sorry you got screwed over.

Any inside info to share on what the heck is actually going on with these Pinball Adventures making pinball plans? I certainly don't understand the angle of years and years of (presumably) spending money on ever-changing concept artwork, parts R&D, storage space, subcontract manufacturing, etc, etc to still not release even a crappy game.

As a business owner, I understand reading stuff about your company on the internet and trying to defend yourself but the way you're going about it is not a great look. I would refer you to spooky pinball's post on how to handle negativity on the forum. They get a lot of shit thrown at them and handle it with class.

Years later same troll posters, same wrong misinformation, one sided witch hunt with nothing to back up any accusations at all. Never met anyone but Todd but seems that all the posters know more about me and my business than I do. Learned it is a waste of time to post anything since someone will always twist it into something different and the lemmings will follow. Thanks for the entertainment and a lesson on online bullying that I can pass on to my kids. Yea the next poster will state that Pinside is where all your buyers are!!! Don’t piss them off. Really is it? All the people we have interacted with in the past few years have never heard of pinside go figure…

That’s a real long deflection… that doesn’t actually address any of the “one sided” stories.

Here’s s hint… it’s only one sided because you won’t acknowledge the concerns and instead try to deflect to this being a mob issue and spin it into you being bullied. That sir, is a load of crap.

Sorry this isn’t a broadcast only platform that you control the message. No here, you actually have to communicate on level ground.
