Quoted from sammiesguys:

Whether you're trying to be a jerk or not, you are succeeding in being one. BTW, all the answers to your previous questions about JPOP's games are already in this thread. The reason people aren't responding to you is because they think you're being a jerk.

Could you please point me to which page, out of 45, those questions are answered. Thank you my friend.

You mean your fiancé ? That Magic Girl had quite a vanishing act! OHHH!!!

Quoted from kaneda:

I'm not trying to be a jerk. Just asking...can you afford a MG?

Why do you care and how is that relevant?? You are definitely trying to be a jerk and you're doing a damn fine job of it. Aurich is pretty well respected on these boards...people like hearing his opinions whether they agree with them or not. Your opinion? I doubt you could find more than 2 people who give a shit about anything you post.

Did you miss all of his posts stirring the pot? I simply called him out for being ultra negative and it's pointless causes even if the game did ship, he can't afford one. Am i wrong? If so, I'll apologize.

That's trading up? Ok. Lol.

Does your new girl know you're posting her pics on some nerdy forum for other guys to critique ? Kind of a superficial & douchey move. No one cares about who you're dating.

You are wrong. Aurich is the most level headed dude on the planet and is always constructive in his criticism. You don't know what's in his bank account and it's irrelevant to his assessment of the situation. "You can't afford it" is a 3rd graders logic. It's irrelevant and serves no purpose than to show your own superficiality. To you, only those with a certain bank balance can have an opinion? You really want to get into that kind of dick swinging contest around here ?

You see now's the part where I once again ask you to share a photo of you, who you're dating/shagging and then you do what you always do and run away.

We're talking about a pinball machine but you go and make fun of my ex-fiance. That's not cool. And my new GF is super cool and thinks it's funny that people spend all day long hitting refresh and commenting on pointless threads all day long. There really is a real world out there where you can't hide behind pinside.

She's right next to me laughing at this. You guys really do take yourselves way too seriously. She's 10x cooler than she is hot. And hell yeah she knows I'm immature. That's what she loves about me. Heck when you date a 38 year old with an arcade in his bedroom, you're not really checking off the maturity box. Keep being mature guys. Maybe that will get MG released

#2212 5 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

This.

But there's no cause to bait him about his (admittedly well publicized) private life or who he has dated or is dating. There's more than enough material in just his pinball-related posts.

Nobody's fighting. This is just another day on pinside, no? We all love it. And let's face it, if any of us had something better to do at this hour, we would be doing it.

Choosing not to engage with a lunatic is not running away. I'm not in a competition with you and I'm not going to stoop to your level of superficiality. Just as your stories and pictures about your personal life are irrelevant, so are mine. However you keep infesting Pinside with your douchebaggery, and as long as that continues I'll rag on you because it's fun...since you bring nothing to the table here, might as well use you for entertainment.

Well then I look forward to having lots of fun with you. But without your photo, how will I hug you at Expo?

#2217 5 years ago

I honestly don't know how you guys got baited into responding to Kaneda again. We should try to get back on topic.

Everybody who is in on MG and RAZA have had years to go visit the shop and see what's happening. If you are freaking out, you should probably take a weekend and do a road trip. Compile a list of owners and see what each of them knows, who has viewed th studio most recently and what the status is. If you have questions, establish a schedule of one person per month who is going to do a studio tour, send them a PM with your questions and have them ask them to Jpop directly and report back.

If the owners are going to accuse Jpop of being disorganized and not handling business, they should take their own advice and start getting organized themselves.

Dude...you just made me spit my water out laughing so hard. I don't know why people get so riled up by my posts. Let's get this back on track. Indeed. Did anyone go out there yesterday to see the pin? Can people who sign the NDA talk about what they saw?

You're so lazy. I'm not gonna do your work for you.

#2220 5 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

And it's not like TOTAN and TOM are known for being having incredible rules. Both fun, but flawed.

Totally agree. Wcs, Tom, Totan, cv, swep1 - how many auto launchers on those games?. I believe it's cv only. Best rule set in that list?

To me an autolauncher is essential for a modern game as it opens up all sorts of code / rule possibilities. Take it away and you limit yourself unnecessarily. I know this is why a lot of proc people are retrofitting manual shooter compatible autolauncher mechs to their rewrites/customisations

#2221 5 years ago

Hey Kaneda, how insecure are you that you need to show a photo of your 'traded up girl friend' in order to pathetically attempt to win an argument?

Go sleep with your ninja turtles.

Me thinks the following is a more acurate photo of your girlfriend...

Presuming you are right handed...

#2222 5 years ago

Regarding JPop , pay him a visit, demand your money back with the threat of legal action, he will give in.

He wants to design not commit to fighting a law case.

#2223 5 years ago

Wait I'm confused, so the big Magic Girl reveal was Kaneda's g/f?

Wow, the first biologically engineered pinball machine. This truly is groundbreaking stuff!

#2224 5 years ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

All this talk of getting an updated timeline seems misplaced. He can just make up a new timeline, he's learned that missing self imposed deadlines are not that big of a deal...
What you guys really need is a full accounting, inventory and budget (the budget would be tied to some timeline. Here is what I would ask:
1) How much money has he taken in total from customers to date?
2) How much capital did he invest into the company from third parties or himself?
3) What is in the bank account as of today?
4) What is his cash burn rate monthly?
5) How much is his salary (broken down by each year of the project)?
6) What is the outstanding accounts payable not yet paid?
7) How much is left outstanding in pre-order money from people who have signed up (this is his only AR)?
Does he intend to contribute capital to the company moving forward and if so how much and when?
9) What are the assets of the company (mostly equipment I would presume)?
10) What is his inventory?
11) How much in parts does he need to build out MG in total? How about Raza?
12) What will the labor costs be?
13) Costs to pursue patents further and other weird intangible costs?
Once all this is answered you guys can decide the next step...and whether JPop is able to build the games even if he is inclined to do so.

Thanks for the great list. I agree with the other comment, just reading these questions would make his head explode like a nuclear mushroom.

The primary reason auto-launch was created quite possible was for the game to earn more,
because if you can just sit on a ball and say drink a beer then the game isn't earning.
One of my customers pointed that out about one of my non-auto launch games on route
that it's a great bar game due to this! well, for him, not my earnings hahaha.

Auto launch can make a game more non-stop which is fun for some but not everyone haha.

Hard to tell but that doesn't look like the same girl as in stolen internet picture to me. Curious why you would use that one from the internet.
Anyway, thanks for reminding me. I have pictures of myself taken with good natured show models that are paid to do just that.

#2233 5 years ago

I simply came on to get Aurich to stop trolling the thread. Then all of the Kaneda love came out and the rest is history. Can't we all get along. Well at least I'm buying JPOP some time

She's my magic girl. but cost less than a Zidware pin

o me an autolauncher is essential for a modern game as it opens up all sorts of code / rule possibilities.

Though I generally agree with this sentiment, battling the genie in TOTAN while frantically launching balls manually is, to me, what makes the wizard mode great. It just wouldn't be the same with an autolauncher.

OK BACK ON TOPIC...NO MORE ABOUT ME AND MY MADE UP GIRLFRIEND...BACK TO ZIDWARE and the status of the games...I won't post anything else that's not JPOP related, but you guys have to hold up your end of the bargain.

That being said...I've seen the playfield and it's fucking EPIC!!!! Game is going to be worth the wait. Playfield and plastic art went up yesterday.

Full play field and plastics are now unlocked. They weren't yesterday. From what I can see the toys are going to be epic. And one game that was rumored to be later on looks like it's actually part of this master piece.

Kaneda please get the hell out of this thread! Everyone else please ignore him. I went on the blog last night to request John read the last few pages of this thread so he could get an idea of the anger and frustration that is brewing here. It F#cking pisses me off because if he does use the link that I posted to this thread on the blog all he is gunna see is Kaneda trolling and a bunch of people taking the bait.

Mods I am requesting that Kaneda be ejected from this thread, kind of a serious issue here with a lot of good people's money on the line.

Everyone else please stop responding to him.

You're honestly implying that I could somehow be responsible for people not getting games or John not knowing the severity of the climate? I have done nothing to warrant an objection from this thread. Can we go back to discussing the new assets that just went up. Amazing.
