Quoted from rosh:

John went into this without the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to do it. His inability to create a team that could work together as well as bring in the individuals needed to make it happen, is his biggest weakness. It is hard to understand how he could understand he needed a developer, an artist, etc. but not a business manager and a project manager. But I guess he did not want the latter two, since he did not want anyone who would tell him what to do and how to do it.
At the end of the day, it was his ego and need for control that made failure a fait accompli

This combined with the easy & "free" crowd funding money. If he was backed by personal savings, you know it would have gone way different.

qbert: but JPOP really nice to me? why he took my money?

Quoted from rosh:

latest info is that Kevin (and his Lawyer) were NOT behind these refunds. Unclear why paypal has been doing it. His lawyer keeps saying he is still planning on making the games and they are working through the details. If you do believe he will make these games, I have some ocean front property in Idaho for sale that you may be interested in, both Atlantic and Pacific views are still available, but they are going fast, so don't delay.

Interesting.

The refund situation, not that prime real estate you're offering.

Quoted from metallik:

Pardon my bluntness, Kevin and John are both idiots. Kevin for thinking he could slip a game or two .. hundred.. under Fox's radar, and John for having no production plans and thinking some magic pinball company would come bail him out.
Neither went into their respective projects looking to rip anyone off, but as the wheels fell off each train, the conductors started to get shady to prop up their failures. Both should have come clean far earlier than now, but ehh... humans hate admitting failure.

We agree for once =)

#13155 4 years ago

At some point he must have known the games could not be built. And any money he took after that, without telling the customer the truth is fraud.

#13156 4 years ago

Is today the day John has to answer the Smith lawsuit? If so, anybody hear anything?

#13157 4 years ago
Quoted from pinstor12:

Yes it is.

As of yesterday, no Answer had been filed.

A motion was filed by the plaintiff attorney and is set for a hearing on 6-12-15. My guess would be that the Motion is to add more plaintiffs to the case.

Quoted from frolic:

If he was backed by personal savings, you know it would have gone way different.

I don't think there is any doubt of that -- and here is where Ben will jump in to re-enforce that is what Spooky did, put their money where their mouth is, which kept them motivated, focused and on track.

Quoted from rosh:

latest info is that Kevin (and his Lawyer) were NOT behind these refunds.

The fact that there even was money to refund at all (regardless of who is issuing the refunds) puts Kevin vastly ahead of JPop in the competency and integrity department.

I can't believe I said the above, but it is true...

#13160 4 years ago
Quoted from pinstor12:

He probably got an extension with which to answer (assuming JPop has an attorney helping him still).

#13161 4 years ago

Unless the Chicago courts have strict pleading rules, Jpop can file a general denial and the matters will be set for a hearing which is likely to be months away.

Quoted from boo32:

Yep

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Yep

I believe he has until the 8th to answer the "Bruce Zamost" lawsuit.

Like Boo and Tiger and many of us have said, let the general denials fly!

Then its up to the plaintiffs to spend more $$ to seek discovery and depositions.

By then, Jpopadeuce has thrown himself into bankruptcy.

Tiger has alluded to the difficulty in "alter ego" theory and piercing the corp veil. I agree its difficult but I've seen a few cases here in San Antonio where two separate "builders", imagine that, came to me after the fact to discuss what they could do.

Well, here was what you should have done BEFORE you didn't follow the minimal corporate formalities and that really good plaintiffs lawyer got a judgement against you and your personal assets. I was surprised at how little it really took in those two cases.

However, builders don't get very much sympathy here in Texas I suppose because they aren't really held accountable to many standards, credentials or occupational regulation.

Talk about Ponzi schemes, using somebody's $$$ to finish the prior house(s) and when the house of cards come crumbling down there is usually two or three bag holders.

They just shut down the entity, and open up for business under another name.

Maybe John will try that? Hehe

#13163 4 years ago

So in the meantime, let's pop a top and get excited about this weekend!

I really can't wait to see what's in store for us, plus the show in general should be great. Live streaming. Aaron will post the link here

Lol. Classic.

#13165 4 years ago
Quoted from Skins:

A guy doesn't plan on cheating on his wife but he goes out with the boys, gets drunk and cheats. Is he less a cheater because when he left to go to the bar he didn't intend on cheating and more importantly; he was drunk?

Yes, clearly he is less of a cheater.

Just like murder without premeditation.

nwpinballshow.com has the link to the live stream. This should be mostly the speakers (FAST/Mission go on at 5pm Friday )

I am headed back to the venue now but I'll post a pick of where Magic Girl will sit if it makes it it the show.

Does he even answer calls?

Quoted from Whysnow:

Nope, but I think he reads the texts. I'm done even trying with poop anymore. The guy is a waste and this planet is worse off with him on it.

If you have some money, he has the time.

If you want to know the status of you machine or him to pay owed money, not so much.

Just my experience.

JPOP's future endeavors = floccinaucinihilipilification.

That's for all you "word of the day" freaks.

Did you guys know that you can text by email?

If you had a number you wanted to text, you can email 10DIGITNUMBER@vtext.com and it will send a text.

Random facts with absolutely no use at all.

Did you mean behind the exit door ?
Outside on the street.......
I guess many will look, but will probably walk away if they know the what where and how.
Not going to send a single dime to Pintasia.......Poooof, money gone.

It was chosen (I was told) because it was far away from the kids zone and could be easily pulled off the floor if drama develops. Makes me wonder what others know that I don't?

MAGIC ZOMBIEGIRL IN ATOMIC WONDERLAND!

let's build it and all the RAZA,AIW,MG buyers will be made whole?

It will be the tale about a zombie girl with big magical tits that drank atomic waste in radioactive wonderland and ofcourse turned purple and is eversince in sort of a retro rollercoaster acid pinball trip.

ZAP!

You had me at "big magical tits".

Quoted from Revo76:

Watch out for falling backboxes while playing the game with those heavy things on there, hahaha.

That's why so much time and care was put into developing the custom hinges.

#13194 4 years ago

yeah...you'll be needing some serious hinges with those big magical tits..LOL

#13195 4 years ago
#13196 4 years ago

Well I cannot wait to see the pictures.

On gameplay, congrats for getting it there. I want to know how bad the ramps block the monitor. It's also about 40 % off John's life work, in regards to pinball and only a prototype.

Good luck to Bill. I hope this game is either awesome or it is horrible. Okay is about the worst response going forward, as okay means a lot more risk if this moves forward.

Also, please do not return this game to John.
