Quoted from pinballrockstar:

Go figure?
Only 19 mg's for an entire planet of people and you know a guy in the area getting one.
Will you be able to play it when he gets it?

i wonder if i know this guy?

Quoted from spfxted:

Let's ask.....did any of you guys have a signed contract?

If this wasn't the case, i wouldn't even be mentioning not getting what was agreed and i certainly wouldn't have spent 2 years working with zidware without a contract in place. This wasn't a hobby for me.. It was a career choice. You should listen to my interview with thisflippinpodcast for more insight. $11k was missing from the invoices by the end of my time there along with NO GAME and was why i had to stop working for them.

so to clear up any confusion YES i did.

#20854 3 years ago

haha , no .. i know crazy levi , so hoping i might know the same guy he knows.

Everyone knows this guy. It's Pinside's favorite banned member.

Quoted from applejuice:

I had a playing prototype here in the office for a good year with plenty of code and features, sounds, graphics etc

Do you happen to have any pics or video of the prototype? It would be interesting to be able to compare with whatever is delivered to customers.

#20857 3 years ago

I'm having a hard time deciding which drama thread deserves most of my attention these days....this one, the SkitB/Kulek one, or now the Dutch Pinball one.

#20858 3 years ago

Hearing that guy owning one is like extra Hershey squirts on this poop pie.

Wonder if he opens it up and takes it out of the box?

Hmm... my take is, and if it's any constellation, it's gotta
be Vulpecula (latin for "Little Fox") from the Dumbbell Nebula

That's not very nice!

I don't know who you guys are talking about, but I'm looking forward to playing this game - or at least looking at it (who the hell knows if it will work) on Monday.

#20862 3 years ago
Quoted from JustLikeMe:

There are photos and video from the NWPAS in 2011.
That was the prototype.
One photo is already shown in this thread for reference from about a month back.
There are three legitimate buyers I am aware locally here in the PNW, so the game is not completely unobtanium to potentially see, if interested people live in the United States. It is even possible enthusiasts may see one at various pinball shows in the next year.
Technically speaking it is also possible that more than 25 (or thereabouts) games were made, based on requirements to fulfill contracts and support American Pinball. These numbers have not been released, as I do not have verification of all buyers that "paid in full" during the entire story fiasco. I hope all the buyers kept their sales invoices for verification when contacted.
Anyway, not every collector treats pinball games as shrines in the corners of their basements.

Added over 4 years ago: Corrected number, 19 (or thereabouts) based on original payments, estimated built is still unknown.

Is kaneda getting a magic girl ?

Quoted from pinballrockstar:

He's engaged, so I think he already got one

#20867 3 years ago
Quoted from pinballrockstar:

Rumor is that he bought Mr. 68's spot.

#20868 3 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

Ah...he might have had a good deal.

(And mr 68 is probably sick to the stomach now mg's are ready for pickup )

I would sell my aiw spot in a heartbeat for half the monies too.

I bet it just chaps his ass that he can't be on here bragging about it too! Isn't that right Special K? Because well all know damn well he reads it all on here!

Yeah, it takes a real genius to know that he reads these threads...since he talks about them on his podcast.

How many people thought he was an incredible idiot when he bought someone's spot for MG? I certainly did! He doesn't look quite as dumb for that move now though, does he? Especially if he got it for a discount, which I would assume he did.

He paid $20k for it. Not sure if I believe $$ actually changed hands at the time because it was unbelievably stupid then, but he claims he actually did it

Maybe he can flip that box of lights for whatever? Guarantee you he's already trying to find a sucker to take it off his hands.

At least the Dutch Pinball crew has been finally outed for the shit show that they are and have been for a LONG time.

Same song second verse, like Jpop, nobody wanted to believe anything was wrong and just made excuses for the lack of communication and lies.

The Alien drama is pretty intriguing too btw.

I read those threads too... While Dutch Pinball seems to be imploding, looks like Alien is shipping and is gonna be at TPF.

Dutch was shipping and went to a bunch of shows too.

Maybe it's a matter of semantics, but I would not say that "Alien is shipping." A single pin going out to an Arcade, and another being close to going out, isn't saying too much.

When they start shipping in bulk containers, that's when I'd say "Alien is shipping." And it does look like that day is getting closer.

+ 1000

As we all should know by now, until your pin has landed on your doorstep it still feels like fantasyland. Very happy for Andrew though and he communicates to all of us. Looking forward to my LE this year sometime.

Behind the scenes parts fiasco with both sides blaming each other. In addition, only 300 TBLs are going to be made.

Good point. Looking forward to seeing video at TPF.

In short, they've been caught in a couple of lies. Turns out, the delays are due not to designing issues... After customers reached out to the manufacturer, they received a response saying that the playfields won't be released until DP pays it's bills. DP says that the manufacturer added 1000 euros to the price of each play field, which is in dispute. This has allegedly been known by DP since October, but customers are just learning about it today. Lawsuits being threatened..... Those 17 that they shipped may become collectables.

A pack of liars to varying degrees is rampant with Pinball "manufacturers"

Absolute worst part about this hobby.

Harder to do it the right way? Always is. In long run, people like Spooky will thrive and grow because of it

If only it could go back to the days when mobsters and gamblers were running the industry.

#20893 3 years ago

So now that's it Happy-Happy-Joy-Joy time, what happened with the depositions and lawsuit? Buyers get their games and maintain a lawsuit? Interesting dilemma.

Game provided with a clause to drop all future litigation options? !

#20894 3 years ago

I'll be playing it next week and shoot video….

#20895 3 years ago

i just want one of those magic girl handies i keep reading about.

Yep...I really wish DP success and hope they they don't end up in the Kulek/JPop/Vonnie D world.

The Phil drama (and price tag) scared me off long ago.

I had $$ paid, like an idiot as usual, and thankfully Phil pushed the refund button!

Anyone else find it weird that there are never more than 4 in a single picture? These are supposed to be ready next week? I wonder if all 19 owners have been contacted and have plans of delivery/pickup of their game.

And are these definitely different to the ones which were in John's studio ages ago?
