Quoted from eggbert52:

It's amazing that you guys press the tilt function for boobies because God forbid your kids are in the room and yet you let the illegal marijuana pictures run wild with no opposition. Nice parenting.

They say science advances one funeral at a time.

Maybe that's why herb became legal in DC this week after a 71% approval vote

Here, chill out & watch this video

We understand that some of you waited with submitting the last payment because of the commotion. Now that we've straightened everything out, there’s no reason to stay behind anymore. We will give you some time for this, so if you want to stay in line, please make sure your payments are up to schedule before March 1, 2015. We hope this gives you time enough to secure your spot in line.

So.. Its march 1; people are in or out on the pre order, refunds have been issued. Thread resolved?

Was out after involuntary refund.
Went back and forth so many times on this, but got back in last night.

Having second thoughts. Followed by third thoughts. And so on.

Got back on board after reconsolidation of dp seemed to go as it needed, and licensing issues seemed to be worked out and BOP2 kits finally out.

Hope I made right call...

I've never understood why some people try to close down discussion threads on Internet forums?

When this thread is closed, another one will spring to life. The same stuff that's being talked about here will be talked about in the new thread, and people will still link back to this thread when they want to dig stuff up and rehash it.

I dont think he wants to close it down, its more about finding out if theres anything related to refunds that is unresolved.

Some will say that the specific state of funds / the new DP USA needs to be clarified, but based on their recent communications I'm quite content.

Looking forward to hearing more about code and hopefully seeing their production begin to ramp in April.

If it makes you feel any better you weren't alone with the back and forth decisions. In the end I went the same way you did. Feel ok about DP and their situation now, but hope the drama is over.

I don't think so. If you look at some of his recent posts, it seems pretty clear that he doesn't like this particular thread and he wants it closed.

Quoted from sd_tom:

All I know is the forced to take a refund group should keep their plight out of the other pre-order threads

Quoted from sd_tom:

maybe all this cool stuff could move to the other threads.. I feel that this thread being the primary TBL thread sorta is a downer (plus off topic for any remaining refund issues) am i wrong?
Can pick from many others here:

or start your own!

Yes, it makes me feel better.

No, wait, it doesn't.

But yes, it does.

Damned indecisiveness.

A most humorous video - thanks!

One more reason to add to the list of "Why you should stay away from marijuana.":

It will make you want to spend MAJOR BUCKS on a Big Lebowski pinball machine!

That's the excuse I'm using anyway.

First, who "likes" this thread.. ??? If you do, you like watching car accidents so i personally suggest you stick to the predator or jpop threads as those fires are still burning.

Re: quotes: I think this is a poor thread to be the TBL "primary" thread, that's all I'm saying.. trying to nudge sure Especially since a good number of people have it drained so talking about cool mods and stuff for the game probably should go some where else.

My comment this morning was only to mark that the entire thread has come to a logical conclusion.. (or if someone still feels unresolved, prompt them to speak up). If people still want to chat about stuff here, so be it I guess..

Makes sense to me -- if everyone that requested refunds got them, now's probably a reasonable time for OP to ask to have the thread closed. General discussion can continue in one of the several other TBL threads.

Well. Paid in full. Here we go......

Quoted from thedefog:

It is legal to walk around NYC topless.

It is legal in Austin, Tx too (written into city law).
We have topless protests here often

#3764 4 years ago

I can't keep up

Is this game gonna happen?

Hope so

Looks so damn cool & you can decorate it with joints & cocktails.

I doubt the game is gonna happen, sad to say that, but it appears it's hard to make a pinball when it involves a license.

Who knows until they ship, of course. But why so pessimistic now? Unless I'm misreading this thread, all refunds have been granted suggesting the financial snafu has finally cleared up (or cleared up enough for them to proceed, anyway). And I think they've quoted Roger Sharpe as saying the licensing is squared away with the latest redesign.

Now they just have to do the "easy" part and make some pinball machines!

#3769 4 years ago
Quoted from sd_tom:

Once there's something new and positive to talk about a new thread will form and people will rally around it. Until then it's just pissing in the wind. Might as well keep it here as anywhere.

When Scott and I figure out our mod I'll start a new thread for it.

I think you had too much 420 or the pinball license you are reefer-ing to is Predetor.

#3771 4 years ago

So now you are just stirring the pot Matt. This license is approved .

#3772 4 years ago

I laugh when people post that stupid quote from the movie, of course it's my opinion, it's a forum topic. It's also your opinion that the machine is awesome and will ship just fine.

I hope it all works out, but when they raise the price another 1500 bucks it's not a good sign. But, hopefully my opinion is incorrect and you all get shipped a lovely machine that you enjoy.

I don't believe they jacked the price up.

Total falsehood. Price is as it always has been stated. $8495 before expo with rug,chrome, and now plaque. $8995 after sans goodies. And that's not just like my opinion man, it's straight from the dp website. image.jpg

Very un-dude or anti-duder'ish if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

Pessimism....they should rename this forum that. Paid in full, not worried about shit.

Translation... Your pissed they raised the price and you don't want to pay that much, so you come on here and say some inflammatory shit like "I doubt the game is gunna happen"
Thanks for clearing that up for us.

#3779 4 years ago

Maybe someone skipped a few pages where the playfield was finally approved. Seriously it's like some people .. They show up to a thread ready to make their comment before they read anything in the last 20 pages they happened to miss, as it couldn't possibly change their comment right?

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/dp-usa-refund-still-want-the-game?tu=matt_rasmussen

They raised price way back in October / day after expo to 9k, no goodies. They just announced goodies could be bought for $500 for further pre orders. So that's $9500.. (And optional) So the additional $500 to make it $1500 I guess is imaginary price increase in his head or he's paying in some other currency.

They can do what they want with future prices anyway, supply and demand. Wonder when pre order period ends; April or when things start shipping (I guess that could also be April but I sorta doubt things are going to go that smoothly)

But I will jump in the thread and keep harping about licensing and pricing etc etc etc.

Didn't you know the license issues (if ever there were any) have been sorted out and the playfield approved? Must be pretty lonely on this thread being a basher now the refunds have been made and the licence approved... can't you think of anything solid to bash them with? Oops, musn't feed the troll

#3787 4 years ago

I'm not bashing anything, nothing is certain until it ships. I've said I hope it works out and you all get the machine and love it, I don't think it will. Get over it, people have different opinions, it's a forum. Don't like what I say, block me, actually, I'd be happy if you did, wouldn't ruin your day anymore.

#3788 4 years ago

I have a slight feeling the chance you're wrong is about 98,76%...

Sorry you're all butthurt over an opinion, life must be rough.

#3791 4 years ago

Forum does not equal the right to act an asshat. As a matter of fact the opposite as trolling is frowned on.
An opionion is welcomed but you made it clear you thinks it's a borefest, the price is wrong etc yet you have been posting all over this thread even with false statements about licensing .
It's clearly a troll mission .
A forum is open but most folks post in topics they are involved in or at least like. To stalk a thread with the intent to upset those involved in that subject is childish and bad form.
Not sure if you are jealous, just mean or just don't know better but seriously think about it. Lots of good pinsiders excited about pinball and new machines here trying to enjoy.

#3792 4 years ago

Check out who the single person is giving him thumbs up on all of his trolling.

FYI: I'm flying into Chicago tomorrow. Dutch Pinball heard about my trip and has kindly invited me to visit them while I'm there.

Doesn't sound like a company with anything to hide does it.

The difference is that you guys view trolling as any disagreement with your point of view. As for enjoying the forum, that's a debatable comment as well. People enjoy different things.

IMHO you calling someone out as jealous when you have no idea of the sort is trolling and it's also condescending. Practice what you preach.

But, I guess being a mod does allow you to act as an...as you put it...Asshat. And oh by the way, just cause someone doesn't post or give you a thumbs down doesn't mean everyone on the planet agrees with your opinion. They just choose to remain silent because it's probably not worth their effort. Don't fall into a sense of self security just because a few people agree with you.
