Quoted from viper001:

What did I miss?

Call Rick and ask ?

He's posted his phone number and said many times to call.

If I had any questions, I'd email or call him.

Quoted from RobT:

You don't think Roger Sharp is biased? You think he'd really come out and say that MMr doesn't play like the original?

No, he was working for Williams at that time. And game play had to meet his approval, for Williams. No skin off his hind parts if he didn't okay it and Planetary and Chicago Gaming had to start over. He got paid the same either way. And I suspect he wanted to protect his employers interests, not someone else's.

Quoted from RobT:

And what do you think would happen if he said "no, this is no good, it doesn't play enough like the original, I won't sign off on this"?

That would be up to PPS and CGC. Stop and quit. Or move on and make what ever changes necessary to get Williams approval.

Quoted from Whysnow:

Motocat = rick/pps? What the heck is going on?

It would appear Motocat copied and pasted part of one of Rick's previous posts here. On where to call. I'm pretty sure he wasn't pretending to be Rick or vice versa.

Puts MMR on route, week later no money in cash box.
Discovers game doesn't come with coin mechs.

That isn't accurate. Any coin going into the coin chute will fall into the machine. Players just won't get credits.

Quoted from metallik:

Since Oct 2013's announcement of an "identical remake" we've lost the original shiny gold trim, Fliptronics

The original was stainless steel, not shiny gold.

Are the flipper coils not double wound ? Looks like fliptronics to me. Doesn't have a separate fliptronics board, which the original didn't either.

Gentlemen. Isn't it time to call it a day.

This has hit a no win and will only hurt pinball.
