See that little icon in the lower left? That puts Shilton on a permanent suspension. Problem solved!

Not sure what you're talking about

#608 30 days ago

without having a whole lot of knowledge on Alien (reliability, etc...) it seems like it would be a great move for CGC if they could pull it off. Clearly there would be big demand for the game. Assuming its a bit of a lemon reengineering the mechs really isn't rocket science....most people love the layout, theme, and rules so thats 80% of the battle in my mind....

Omg it’s announced!

#610 30 days ago

You'd still need the programmers though if you are changing the game mechs/boards. Did Pinball Brothers reach out to Brian and Joe?

He actually spells it "Schilton" for some reason.

Quoted from Aurich:

Even assuming it worked that way I can tell you right now the lawyer would cost more than what they never paid me in royalties the first time around.

There is money in coin op/amusement royalties?!? I think I made enough money to buy some beer when they licensed and paid me royalties for my code in Global VR’s Ultrapin VP fiasco. I think they sold all of maybe 200 machines?!? I got a buck each minus taxes... enough for some Taco Bell, some beer, a condom, and a cheap date.

If I was coding for coin-op today it would be $ per line of delivered code, cash on delivery.

Let's just say I didn't take the project on for a buck each, but in the end even $1,000,000 x 0 still = 0 so who cares?

I'm mostly over it all (mostly /newt) but really the shame of a redo, if if happens, would be to not take advantage of actually working with Fox, instead of control freak terrible manager Andrew ruining things for no reason. When I finally, at the very end of things, got to talk to the Fox rep directly she was perfectly reasonable and way more flexible than I expected.

Anyone watching the 40th anniversary short films on YouTube? I've only seen one so far, need to watch the rest, but they're being very cool about exploring the universe it seems. My guess is a lot more could have been done. Ah well, so it goes, I think the complete package in the end is still pretty good.

No no guys this time I’m serial !

I was at Whole foods today to get some oatmeal for baby. Then I saw him. There was this guy, kind of overweight, long beard wearing glasses wearing a Weyland-Yutani shirt. He was coming towards me so I said "oh hey, Weyland- Yutani huh?". He looked shocked. Behind his glasses his plump eyes widened and he said "yessss". Then I said "have you played the Alien pinball game? Its awesome!". Once again his eyes widened in shock and he once again said "yessssss". Then he kept walking and waddled away. Im pretty sure this is a hint that a new batch is coming. Get your deposits ready!

Agreed; just that I'd expect people like you who were screwed in the end; to sue the new "entity" into non-existence if they try to get a free ride for using your collaterals. I'm sure you feel the same way.

Not gonna happen Zitt. Aurich got his game and sold it for a nice chunk of change.

PB took care of him. How did he get screwed?

That's fantasy land

I saw this guy again today, he saw me and just turned around and ran off. Something is going on... something...

Patience, patience. He's still got 32 days for an announcement that Aliens is going to be produced again before he has to start paying out bottles of booze.

#622 21 days ago

I don’t get your point....

1. You just want this to be true ASAP and you just want to read that it is a fact?
2. Or, do you really want to erase this thread from your forum activity and simply avoid to stop by every day and read news about this game?
3. This Thread won’t be killed easy...

I really hope Ice is right, and there will be an opportunity for folks to get their hands on this game (at a reasonable price). I'd love to own it again someday. That said, I'm still skeptical it will happen.

Ice, you still taking bets at this late hour?

Did he tho?
I don't know the contract specifics... but a Game hardly seems like a paid contract to me.
Say what you want - because clearly you seem to think you know something we don't.

That's said; my hope stands. If this really is possibly going to happen again … I hope Aurich and the other "contractors" take the new company to the cleaners if they are violating copyright law by re-using their art without compensation/new contract. End-of-story.

I wasn’t paid what I was owed and I’m not suing anyone. So really neither of you are representing my position.

You take risks with startups, I knew that, it is what it is. I can feel how I do about it without needing to let it be anything more than that.

I like how your presenting your take and positive attitude. Hopefully your work on Alien helps land you another gig with exposure to your art and gained experience.

Quoted from BOBCADE:

Appreciate it, but if I was offered another pinball gig I'd probably turn it down. Mixing hobbies and business is risky stuff, I knew that, but now I *really* know it, heh. I might be a little slow sometimes, but I can take the hint eventually. And honestly, I'm good at what I do, but if you want an illustrator there are plenty of people with more skills than me, I'm rusty at even drawing these days.

Gonna stay in my lane, which means pinball projects I control. There's just no reason to add compromise and committees to something you love. Then I can work at my own pace, and not sweat being slow. Like this Metallica project I've teased a few times for the past (checks calendar) 4 years.

Would all sell plenty without the hassles of trying to turn Alien into a functioning, reliable machine they can sell to people.

BBB not in the top of the list anymore?
