I was told it would come tomorrow...

FAST Pinball

Ya. It'll be here on Saturday. At the shows request I think.

#13402 4 years ago
Quoted from dgarrett:

This is when I get foggy on how to argue right and wrong in this whole project. How do you argue difference of opinion and not meeting "expectations". If this is the game design you get - assuming Pintasia builds it - and your opinion is its "only worth 10k" - does Bill owe you a MG + $5995??
Folks ordered blindly at $15,995 and were promised a game. Game is now being shown, and those in at $15,995 don't like the look, feel and finish. But you gave over the money with no clue as to the final design,etc. You agreed and paid $15,995 with no refund. The game isn't worth that, in your opinion, now that you see it.
So is that fraud or high expectations v. the reality seen today. I'm not trying to be a jerk to those with $ in, but I honestly am looking for an explanation that isn't so foggy to understand.

Nobody ever thought it was going to be worth $16,000 in a run of 199 based purely on the design and mechanics. They thought it would be worth that much in a run of 25.

Edit: So yes, that is fraud if he does not give refunds after promising the limited number to the original buyers.

Quoted from ChrisVW:

What's your Magic Girl serial number? What game # do you have?

Why? What difference does it make?

Tell you what, you show me yours and I'll show you mine.

Quoted from toyotaboy:

I see John found another solidworks monkey to do his bidding. Wonder if he's still using the student edition.

I almost applied for that job when he had it posted a few years ago. So glad I didn't.

Simple. Mr Popadiuk said 19 would be built, and would be delivered 2 years ago. Breach of contract.

Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

It's coming tomorrow AM

Was the show not open to the public today? why would it not be there? 30 hours straight on the road to now wait 24 hours and not show it? Hmmmm, the big reveal i guess.

#13410 4 years ago

Btw, all you guys that worked to make this happen, dgarret, Pdx and The rest of Bills crew, great job!

And let's not forget Cointaker, GLM and all the other vendors that put so much time and $$ into this. Especially sorry you guys got F ed

And Aaron, Yeti, secret manager guy, etc

All you guys are great

So what's your number? You've said repeatedly you're suing and that you've purchased a game 4 years ago. I'm not asking for your receipt at the door here, what's the number?

#13416 4 years ago

I have no idea on numbers- but he has filed suit. I verify that .

Let's not forget to thank John for spending over one million dollars to make this happen. Everyone is looking at the most expensive prototype pinball game ever made. Lets thank all of us who gave John the money to make this happen.

You sort of are.

Anyway, I can dig it out tomorrow, old chap. No problem. RAZA as well as MG. I'm outside in the jacuzzi currently

But why is it so important? You've asked me several times. It's not as if I have #1, which I guess I would remember! Frankly the number of something that will never happen, is dead, and was always vapourware isn't terribly important.

not only that but the #'s apparently don't mean squat John doesn't even know what # anyone is on any game! I have mentioned it here more than once , he sent me documents saying that I was #51 as well as #71 on AIW

In fairness to Mr68, I sent him a scan of the first page of my MG purchase agreement (yet another contract Jflop got us to sign), in order to be invited to his MG-RAZA facebook page, following which he stated in this thread that I am genuine. Which is nice. I find validation terribly important

They needed the day to hire extra security so someone doesn't light it on fire.

Because I've had several Pinsiders try to bullshit their way into the private owners group.
It's pathetic how desperate some people are to butt into other people's business.

Pinballs had been verified by the way.

The party can finally get started now that Ice is here!

#13434 4 years ago

Have I missed anything on the "private owners group"?

I'm gonna organize the Private Vegas burning man trip.

I'll make it public here first though

If only we were up in the great NW Jar!

I should have planned better but a pinball show was not a good excuse for me not going to New York with family

Work shit sounds a whole lot better

Pinballs is legit.

Nothing personal man, I just don't believe everything I read on the internet. When someone makes serious allegations (like joining a lawsuit) I want to know for myself that person is for real. You are for real bud.

#13438 4 years ago

Haha, you know what I'm going to grab a six pack right now and channel my inner iceman

Quoted from Erik:

Not tonight Erik, I'm in happy happy mode!

The Hulk mode cannot be triggered, I will stay very positive and sarcastic but will not cross the line.

No need to worry mods, it's all coming down to the end of this fiasco and I feel somewhat liberated by just seeing what could have been.

Life is short and we move on

Hell yeah! Would have been a good time.

Unfortunately, I have to go into work tonight and pull an all nighter. Doing an upgrade of our ERP system. High excitement.

Way to go ICE. That's the ticket.

Quoted from hank527:

Pinball Circus cost $1.5 Million to prototype in 1993 dollars - that would be $2.4 Million today.

Too bad we still do not have a clue on the most important thing...

HOW DOES IT PLAY!!!

I will say time and time again it is completely disgusting that this is going to be shown at a show when you have NUMEROUS unpaid vendors, artists, coders, etc... Many of these guys are our pinball brothers and yet they got stepped on and kicked in the junk while their hard work is being featured so someone else can attempt to turn this disaster into a feasible business model and beta for more cash! Never mind that the proposed business and its employees have a littered past and shown to be questionable ethics, they are also doing it on the millions of dollars in preorder money that is being dangled with a non-sue BS contract.

HOW is it possible that so many people are willing to overlook all this?

Pintasia has claimed that he spent over 100k to get the game playable and to the show and it is obvious that even more volunteers have put in lots of time to make stuff happen in the past few months, yet the artists and coders and parts suppliers are still sitting here unpaid!!!

This is a serious WTF in my book.

It is this weird dichotomy of so many great people trying to make something 8thanks to all of you) out of a pile of crap and yet the people steering this whole thing appear to have not taken a single step towards doing the right things to take care of those that even got it to this point.

On top of this all, John the tool that made all this shitstorm come to life is being offered a get out of jail free card if Pintasia can convince and manipulate people into giving even more money.

The red flags are huge and sickening and unpaid vendors and artists should be fuming that their work and parts are being featured at the show.

I feel for all of you that are going to loose in this situation but even more so that your emotions are continually being toyed with.

Play the game like you stole it because it will likely be the one and only time this flippable game? is seen in the real world.
