Now now boy's... We all know it's j-pop signature that we're looking for

Okay now you got me thinking ... alright Robert if you're watching this thread I'm down for a RAZA if you and Big Papa will both sign it (actually ships by March 2021)

Robert can take a photo of me handing him $13,000 one dollar bills and post it right here!!!! Make it rain baby!

LOL

#503 11 months ago
Quoted from drfrightner:

If you pay 13k for the LE version do you get a letter of authenticity signed by Robert Muller? Is that a perk for ordering that version because that might put me over the edge and go for it.

Tell ya what, for $13k you can buy my LE and I'll get you a legit letter from somewhere, that's a promise.

Quoted from drfrightner:

Let’s see some pics of RAZA in your game room! What will be the ETA for that photo predict the year, month, decade and century. Let see who gets the closest.
I have a serious question for you guys who ordered.

Wasn’t the LE only $9k???

Not sure where the doctor gets his numbers from...but yes...I’d sell him the Xtra version for $13k as they were only $9,500 while they were being sold...nice profit!

Yeah I assume he's referring to the future pricing that DR published for any leftover RAZAs... but still, I got first dibs on his $13k !!

Yes when I took my first sip of Chimay, it changed my life forever and work my taste buds up as to what beer supposed to be.

#516 11 months ago

Well...the holidays are over and we are now in the first full week of 2021. Deeproot should now be in full swing with production and most likely waiting for some of the game specific parts to trickle in. Anticipation building...yep. Excitement building...yep. Concerned...nope. Worried...nope.

In a past life you might have been a kamikaze pilot... fly that plane right thru a hail of bullets to reach the target. What I mean is you're totally fearless my man! Love it! Maybe 1 out of 100 Kamikaze hit their target but no matter its the fearless nature that counts. Send me those gameroom pics in March.

Like I said the artwork is badass!!! Can't wait to see it in action!

i put my deposit down on a credit card if things go south I call my card company and get a refund, they have 4 weeks to deliver or I'm done. i put a few hundred thousand on my card every year and I am sure my card company will stand by me if I cancel.

Doubt it. You signed a contract and put down a nonrefundable deposit. It was pretty clear.

Just curious, what got you spooked? It’s only January 4th!

Tried the other RAZA thread. Wow. That was a real drag. The speculation of how Deep Root is going to fail was horrible.
F-that. Let’s stay positive! This machine is going to be fantastic! I wish all the people at Deep Root nothing but success and an amazing 2021!!!
Can’t wait to get that RAZA!

I do the same, but that contract that was required to go forward with the deposit would definitely be used to fight a charge back. And being on both ends of a charge back has given me great insight into the process. You'd lose this one. No matter your spend level.

Yes...the other deeproot thread is toxic...stay far far away. I felt like I was on a merry-go-round in hell...same negativity regurgitated over and over for years now. Regardless of what many in that thread say, they want deeproot to fail which is bad for the hobby and more importantly bad for those employed there. This is the year deeproot will either sink or swim. I also wish them nothing but the absolute best and can’t wait for RAZA to start shipping!!!

The main thread is an empty shell all positivity got extracted this thread sucked the life out only vultures and crows left.

#530 11 months ago

So I’m really interested to see how I’m going to like this lowdown bar with the touch screen built into it.
More importantly, the redemption of tickets during gameplay. Part of me makes me think I don’t want to stop gameplay to do that but the other part of me thinks it’s a really neat concept.

#531 11 months ago

The only concern I have atm is RM said recently he does not have all parts yet combined with the statement they release production schethule end of month that is indicating he does not now when production will start bc can’t rely on when to get the missing parts. He he can’t rely on production how can we we can’t. Hope that problem gets solved soon.

#532 11 months ago
Quoted from kklank:

I don’t want to stop gameplay

The mode select on my AIQLE is limited to 20 seconds. It’s a nice breather esp during longer ballplay and does not reduce the immersion imo.

Who left the window open and allowed a snowflake in?

#535 11 months ago

Good day all, has anyone who ordered contacted DR after the fact to add an option? I added the lights and toys to the AE in my original order but have been thinking about getting the topper too.

That is a legitimate point about the PinBar and I’ve thought about that myself. My opinion is that making decisions during gameplay has already existed for a long time now, just on a lesser scale, and the PinBar will make it easier. For example, my BM66 Catwoman (kinda miss my Julie avatar LOL) gives you a choice to make when you initially beat a major villain whether you throw their ass in jail or continue with the episode (risk vs reward), when you decide whether to select one of the many minor villain episodes or take the points, when you select which wizard mode to play, etc. All of these are done by scrolling through the options using the flipper buttons and selecting it with the lockdown bar button. My thought is the PinBar will be a much better way to select an option during gameplay along with the MANY MANY MANY other advantages the PinBar has to offer! Just my 2 cents and as always, time will tell.

From the FAQ on post #1:

Q: If I've already place my order, can I still opt into or out of other options?
A: Yes once your order is made you can change options later.

I'd assume you just need to contact them and let them know.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I was aware of this in the FAQ but was curious if anyone actually did it already.

Yes! UnholySpectacle can be a guinea pig amongst all of us already guinea pigs. Let us know how it goes as I was thinking of adding a few options myself!

The peer pressure is real. I’m actually on the fence because my cats love to lay or sit on the back boxes of my current machines. I’m not sure if they would try to attack a topper or just look at it in confusion. On the other hand my wife actually asked me if I ordered the topper since it was not criminally priced like the Elvira one.

#543 11 months ago

On a serious note, I would have definitely ordered the topper, especially at that price, but my ceiling is a little too low.

Now that you mention it I should measure to be sure. Did they release the dimensions of the topper?

Worst case you can just take the light bulbs out to clear another 5 inches lol. Topper was a must to me. Granted Xtra included but would order anyway.

#547 11 months ago

This is directly from deeproot and as they say, the leg levelers are a variable...

“All of these are variable based on height of leg threads. Glass lift 1st position 6'11" 2nd position 7'8". Arcade topper is 7’2”. Reserve topper will be higher at 7’7”.”

Hope this helps!

#548 11 months ago

Looks like Yelo is getting a bigger and badder topper. Can’t wait to see it!

#549 11 months ago

Looks like the glass height is the limiter here, not the topper! If you can open the glass all the way, then the topper is lower.

And if anyone wants to order different options, they might want to do that soon since it's a limited run and changing options could potentially delay your build if the parts are not on hand.

Thanks for the info. I’ll measure tonight and see if it will fit.
