Quoted from Aurich:

This might not be a popular opinion, but I don't want John to go to jail. It's not really a worry for me, because frankly I think it's utterly unlikely.
I'm totally not victim blaming here, at all! But you guys took a risk sending money to someone who never actually made pinball machines by himself. Turns out he was an artist flake, he dicked around for years, and you lost your cash. Totally sucks.
But you're all adults who should have known the risks going in. Do I think you have the right to sue him and make sure he makes right what he can and doesn't "get away" with anything? Hell yes.
But going to jail? Come on. That's just a horrible thing to wish on someone. And I get that people are mad at him. But he didn't take your money and go to a tropical island. He did what some of us thought he'd always do, he farted around with pinball ideas for years, and never finished shit. As lame as it might be, he did work on pinball this whole time. He did spend your money on custom parts and development. It wasn't a scam, or a ponzi scheme, it was just a failed business from a dreamer who didn't handle the reality of getting things done.
It wouldn't feel like a victory to me, but rather a really dark mark on the hobby if he actually did jail time for that.

...I'm sure his lawyer will be quoting from this...

Quoted from flynnibus:

and what does this have to do with the price of tea in China?

Not to be confused with a butterfly's wings flapping in China. This price is scientifically derived from numbers only tangentially related to the actual price of tea in China, which we have found is profoundly more accurate than actual prices paid for tea in China. How this affects you, your child, your pinball purchase or an acquaintance is derived, again, scientifically, by a patent-pending method we'd love to discuss, but can't, at this time. It has little to nothing to do with the technology behind the magic eight ball. A brief overview of the connections between the price of tea in China and pinball will be posted here soon....

Quoted from frolic:

I've written jpop a script to open the seminar up. Somehow I don't think this is what he'll say, and somehow I doubt we are going to feel any satisfaction at the end of what he does say, and likely more rage. But here is what I suggest:
Hello everyone, thank you for coming. I just need to address something before we move along with this. I fucked up. Badly. I am going to own up to this now, belatedly, and I want to sincerely apologize to all the people I've harmed along the way from my actions. Every business can fail, but I treated my customers and friends terribly and I am ashamed of how I dealt with everything. I lied to you my customers, I lied to my friends and confidants, but more than anything I lied to myself. I lied to myself about the state of things, and kept telling those lies to myself until I didn't know what way was up. For this, I am very sorry.
I don't expect anyone to take my word for it, and I know I don't deserve any more of your trust or patience. But as they say, today is the first day of the rest of our lives, and starting today we're making delivery of the first completed Magic Girls. Chris from Cointaker has already taken delivery of the first one. He's over there. I treated Chris terrible, I'm sorry Chris. So I'm glad to start things moving forward today to repair things with him and everyone else.
I know everyone is tired of my smoke and mirrors, so there is a playable Magic Girl here at the show. Come see it. Everyone paid up for a Magic Girl is getting one. Then we start to make it up to the rest of my customers. Once they all are taken care of, we will then start taking new orders for my new Houdini game. In the meantime, it is here to play as well. I've got some great partners that are making this possible. So please let me introduce them...

You forgot one thing......"Oh, and SEND MONEY NOW!"

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

I wonder if any of these dudes ever got it in writing that their "payment" was going to be a Magic Girl pinball machine.

Yeah, just spoke to him to find out what's going on. He said…basic code, just like the one at the show. Ball hang ups, etc. But I'm sure a number of you pinball gurus can figure out how to make it work as long as all the mechs and stuff is in there……right?

#21290 2 years ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Sure, if we all want to babysit these games and do hours and hours of free work just so somebody can try to flip magic girl.

I would think it would be worth it if you can take a $16,500 machine and flip it for $45k

#21292 2 years ago
Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

I'd sooner quit pinball than contribute to validating Jpop's work.

My pleasure. At least the game is playable. When I put a few games on it I'll give my impression. One thing is that most, if not all the MG owners have dough. They will find a way to make the machine better.

I have to say that I find the prospect of applejuice and zombieyeti (amongst others) not getting the machines (and payment) they were promised

Quoted from wizard_mode:

#22158 2 years ago

From Chris:

In response to Applejuice's statement here:

So, regarding the power playfield feature. I think we need to check the rear of the swirl ramp in greater detail. There should be a switch mounted on there somewhere and also a diverter of some kind to allow the ball to enter the upper playfield instead of continuing up the ramp.
This switch is the one we now need to check in arcade game play as to whether that progresses the POWER lamps. Please also pay attention to what the screen says after switch hits. If it shows the messages under the score i posted earlier then we are good. If not then its time to get the 'fix this' list out..

"Thank you Jim for all of you efforts. Not ideal to be chasing answers without a game in front of you. So I think I can put an end to this Magna Flipper chase once and for all. Switches and lighting POWER do not matter. After stepping back and just studying the ramp and the mech it's clear as day: there is absolutely no way for the ball to be diverted from the left ramp into the upper Magna Flip playfield.

There is one diverted located on the upper right portion of the clear ramp. This diverter works. The ball either goes up the ramp with the diverter open which lets the ball loop around the front of the ramp and then drops the ball down the left squiggly ramp return to left flipper. If the diverter is closed the ball goes down the right squiggle ramp to the right flipper. There is absolutely no entrance to the Magna Flip playfield from the left ramp.

HOWEVER there is one entrance to the Magna Flip playfield. Through the hole in the middle of that playfield. Yes, the ball can enter that playfield from UNDERNEATH it. Which makes sense now because that explains why there is a diverter flap (black plastic flap) that covers the whole ABOVE the Magna Flip playfield. If the ball continued UP that whole it would reach the Mystic Ring Magnet which sits at the very top of the whole mech (right under the Genie's head).

Originally it seems John wanted the ball to be fired from the playfield UP through one hole (magna flip level) and then through another hole (mystic ring capture) where it would be suspended inside a magnet. Looks like he ditched that seemingly impossible shot and decided to make the coil shoot the ball up through one hole, hit the black plastic flap and fall into the Magna Flip playfield.

I think what this means Jim is new code is needed to make the Magna Flip entrance come from the coil shot on the playfield, not a ramp diverter. This all makes sense now why John contacted you back in November to help out. He had made chances to the mech so that it could work but had nobody to code in the new approach.

Good news is this...I think the center mech will 75% work...which is fine. John only needed to have the ball go in 3 different directions to make the game fun. Just like TOTAN. Ball can go left, right, or into the GENIE fireball throw. With MG, it looks like the ball can go left, right, and be fired up into Magna Flip area...that would make for a fun mech. He really bit off more than he could chew and tried to make too much happen in one area of the game. Hence the mountain mech that blocks half the screen and still will never physically work."

If any of you have any more questions I'm happen to make more videos going over stuff. Your obedient servant...CK

#22248 2 years ago

Hopefully a few other owners will chime in eventually….

#22468 2 years ago
Quoted from Borygard:

The simple fact is there are far more people with more money than they can spend, than there are MG games. Only around 20 games exist, there will always be more people that would like it in their game room, for whatever reason, than there are games to go around.
Like it or hate it, Magic Girl is part of pinball history.

Yes...it's like this in EVERY area of collecting. Baseball cards ...$1 each EXCEPT for that special one that only 100 were make...$1,000!
or Vinyl Figures. $5 each EXCEPT for the Limited PINK One....$2,000. Or Movie Posters...Mummy Half Sheet $400,000! No matter what, there will always be collectors out there with DEEP pockets that want the rare or Limited Version. WHY this is a surprise or shock to anyone is beyond me.....

#22479 2 years ago
Quoted from pookycade:

There is no better way to show you have more money than other people than to have what they can't and pay ridiculous prices for it. To hell with functionality or actual value/merit.

I just picked up a Stellar Wars! (just now)! Damn those things are heavy! Up a flight of stairs SIDEWAYS because it wouldn't fit through the door! Guy bought it over 30 years ago and it hasn't been played for 10 years. I just thought you all should know.

Oh, I did! Thanks! Those are brand new batteries. The boards look brand new. I don't think the guy ever had the backglass off!

No need to damn me….this was in VERY North Jersey.
Players condition, but got a good deal…

From Chris:
Images of what's different in the protoypes that went out and the other 19 MGs. Most annoying difference is John removed the outlane posts which are SORELY needed in the game. Now it's as if you're playing a Stern with the outlane posts fully removed. Aka...no fun.

Images of 19 MGs on left, and Prototype on right.

Ahhhhh...what might have been!!

#23034 2 years ago

You have a machine with people asking between $25 and $50k. I'm sure SOMEBODY will pump a few thousand more into it and get it to play right.....

Quoted from Astropin:

The future resale value of these will crash at some point. Better strike while the irons hot because I think time might be running out.

Why....you looking for one....

It will happen, and may not take too long either

He took your call and apologized?? Wow how do you rate! JPOP has $4750.00 of my money and I gave up trying to call and email him more than a year ago.

Call him and say your plastic is fine, you just don't have the rest of the machine.

He is not a good business man and he is not one to put it all together which he thought he could.

He was collecting money on what... like 5 machines when he knew he couldn't make them. He's a crook! Period!

I’ll later post what I’ve read saying IRAs may be subject to judgment whereas 401K is not. Depending on what state you are in.

After all that, I'm in the state of confusion....
