I played Predator at Expo. The problem is that I didn't have any actual fun playing it.
I don't know what you guys were smoking, but three weeks ago you posted a video where you had clear ramps on the game. You showed up at expo with OPAQUE BLACK ramps on the game.
WHAT were you guys smoking? The NUMBER ONE COMPLAINT against AC/DC is that people can't see what's going on around the right inlane, and you guys cover not only the inlanes but most of the outlanes ON BOTH SIDES!??!!?? HORRENDOUSLY BAD presentation -- put me off the game pretty hard.
It flat out DOESN'T MATTER that the clear ramps looked like crap. The point is THEY WERE CLEAR. Going with the completely black ramps meant that ANYTHING that went ANYWHERE NEAR either the inlane or outlane on either side was COMPLETELY unsaveable. You turned a game of pinball into a game of pachinko. If I WANTED to play pachinko, I'D BE PLAYING PACHINKO!
Throwing James under the bus for your incompetence/ignorance on ramp making was also very poor form as well. You would be perfectly fine saying "we wanted to have X but it didn't work out", but throwing James under the bus by name for something that wasn't his problem but a problem of your making isn't cool. James is a highly valued member of the pinball community! His product has helped me save many of my games! Not cool in the least!
Clean up your act guys -- your expo showing was low class on multiple fronts. If you're going to be in business making pinball machines, act like you're IN BUSINESS. That means you don't talk crap about your suppliers with every Tom, Dick, and Harry that walks up to the booth. (EVEN IF they deserve it, which in this case they didn't.) Being in business means that you take your lumps and go with the playable ramps even if they look like melted soda bottles. Being in business means acting like professionals, not like two guys who escaped their garage. It's entirely OK to be two guys who escaped their garage (look at Dennis & Greg!) -- just don't ACT like it.
