People hate both of them, fair enough. I hate TBAG, dream theme ruined for me. Fair enough.

yep its fair enough indeed that you feel it was ruined. But theres nothing to be gained by "lets get revenge".. its time to move on and be classy not sit outside his shop with a placard

But I like placards.
I still might buy a F-14 from you though.
Mind you I was naïve as I thought you were a collector when I posted that ad on AA but now I see that you work for a dealer, hence the dealer prices.
All good though, I may still be keen.

Any word on how much he is going to charge for the ice cold beer clone?

#3962 33 days ago

from a post mike made on homepin FB page

We are waiting on the testing house to finish the CE and FCC testing. This could take a few weeks yet. We are also still tweaking the artwork, cabinet design and software. After that they will be built in order of distributors deposits - first paid, first get! I cannot set a sell price as all distributors have their own costs and they vary from country to country, that is a matter for the sellers to determine. I have no idea when the first units will be for sale and I also don't know which country will get them first at this stage.

#3963 33 days ago
Quoted from pipes:

I noticed you seem to chime in with all the advertising and answers - are you some sort of spokesperson for Homepin? How exactly are you affiliated with the company? Just curious. I'm not familiar with the whole backstory here.

These guys are just trouble. Just go back through their posting history and that will speak for itself.

Brave distributors that will pay anything up front after the T Birds prepayment disaster. Just sayin.

#3966 33 days ago

Quoted from oldskool1969:

Container scheduled for July/August should have all remaining preorders in it.

Toppers are currently scheduled for December, these will only start when all preorders are shipped so could be further delayed. Hopeful but not confident of December availability.

There is supposed to be new code coming soon, interested in seeing what has been fixed/improved.

Quoted from wiredoug:

Honest reviews are no issue its personal attacks and untruths that cause problems
Just dont start with personal slander type stuff

nice nice

#3971 32 days ago

sorry man i read your post wrong i thought you were dribbling about preorders for this wave game having toppers. the answer is above

#3973 32 days ago

The endless battle to deal with petty trolls carrying on bringing up the same stuff over and over again sure is draining.

Theres no dispute homepin had a bad start, no argument he made mistakes and absolutely no question there is huge room for improvement in parts of the operation but going out of your way to bring up the same old material over and over again to propagate hate and harm just reflects on you now.

Some of you, I know your motivation, some i dont. A couple just appear to just be lonely souls who enjoy misery.

Good people arent this hateful .. "oh yay a chance to kick homepins business again over that stuff from two years ago awesome" isnt the way normal decent people think.

but then ... pinball people really are special some times.

hopefully there are still a few people who appreciate me bringing info here.. maybe i shouldnt bother.

#3974 32 days ago

Then don't take the battle on Doug me ol mate.
I love a good shit stir, but I don't like wankers! Don't become one please.
Typed words can be mis understood very easily.
Also never fight another one's battle.
We are all big people.

Quoted from Ballypinball:

I would rebadge it with a Beer Brand and sell them to all the pubs

It was either Sid or Mike that mentioned the same idea when they were looking into this a few years back.

#3977 32 days ago
Quoted from blue95:

the idea has excellent merit from a sales perspective but is not being pursued by homepin. If owners chose to mod the game that would be up to them ( i know i would be ordering a woodgrain one if i had the coin spare.) but homepin sell a "surfing" game that isnt beer themed at all.

#3979 32 days ago

Re: beer. I'm surprised American Pinball didn't do Oktoberfest with an OEM version in mind, that they could have branded to order. I'd have thought some breweries or bar / pub operators would be all over that.

Now that they have that game created the could always do a custom version of firmware and artwork for any OEM beer company.

#3981 32 days ago

But you need a bavarian beer company ... our beer companys in the Cologne area are miles away from "Oktoberfest" ... that is only bavaria ...

haha Köstritzer Schwarzbier theme

#3983 32 days ago

The game operating code is nearly finalised now.

Anyone wishing to retheme their rtw game will be able to put new sounds on the two SD cards. ( sounds card and music card) .

Its possible that dealers buying in bulk can request the game be another color (than orange) and also possible to request the cab art be left off.

How owners change the game is up to them.

Any news on code update on Blunderturds? pinball_freak
I would like a code change to give it another crack to see IF code can change a donkey.

Have not had any update on code, was expecting to have heard something by now. Not really playing it much so no rush, but hope the ones coming in a couple of months have updated code.
I can’t stop playing SW at the moment which arrived after TAG but it’s got that one more game feel. If code isn’t a significant improvement I’m thinking of turning it into a coffee table.

Even with low plays est under fifty I have had to clean around the pops twice, looks like the white plastic is deteriorating. Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this. Robustness of parts although yet to be tested fully show weaknesses that looks like there will be future problems. Still just shaking my head!

Coffee anyone! Cheers
