Quoted from frolic:

I wonder if something like asking pre orders to downgrade to a nominal $250 deposit. So they still are on the list as a buyer, but it's demonstrated that their money isn't needed until shipment.

Something like that would be nice, I think. I have thought about requesting that they refund me only my second payment, leaving me with my initially $1500 deposit because, while I do still want the game, I'd (understandably) rather "downgrade" my risk some if possible. I may do so when I speak with them although I haven't been contacted at all yet.

Another concern is that I may still want to downgrade my LE order to a standard, but I won't decide that until I actually see an LE produced. If I choose to do that are they going to want to charge me the "increased" price for a standard and/or bump me to the back of the line for standard orders even though I've had cash in since Oct '15? Either of those scenarios would be a no-go for me and downright offensive, so I sincerely hope they're reasonable about it.

Got the same email this morning. It was nice to see them reaching out without me having to request a refund (yet), but that timetable makes me fairly nervous. As much as I'd like to receive a game, I'd much rather receive a working game that is delayed a bit more.

For example, while they did improve the xeno mech, but I haven't heard much about the new one at all, so I'm hopeful but its still a bit of a wildcard in my mind. Likewise, I hope that the issues with the pre-production GI boards is gone, but I'm not sure we'll know until more games get out. Finally, it'd be nice if various other, more minor fixes/tweaks suggested by some of the "prototype" owners could be implemented (like the playfield screen staying flush), but given the proposed timetable, it seems doubtful. I understand that I'm an early adopter in this case and I don't mind having to fix a few things, but its when some of those "things" might require replacement parts (proprietary switches?) that I get (understandably) worried given the current situation.

Anyhow, going abroad for a vacation for a week starting tomorrow, so I'll have to think about what I want to do and deal with this **** when I get back.

Yeah, imo, that's actually the most messed up thing about all of this for the early preorder people. In addition to losing your money, you get to see the machine that you should have gotten and other people have (most of whom ordered well after you) likely go way up in value so even if you ever have the stomach to purchase one later, you'll just have to shell out even more.

Just an additional little "f*ck you" to the early supporters courtesy of Heighway Pinball. You know, to compensate them for removal of the fiber optic ramps or something.

Quoted from Frli002:

Im going in to my playroom and do some credits on my perfectly playing Alien LE instead of reading the coments here, the time is better of use then . Ohh and some new code is on the way all out war

Thanks for taking the time to share first.

Quoted from oyvindmo:

The meeting was pretty uneventful. There were two main points on the agenda: first to affirm that the company should be wound up voluntarily, and second to appoint a liquidator. The investor group was present, and a few of the larger creditors had submitted proxy votes, and Mark Bowen of MB Insolvency (http://mb-i.co.uk/) was unanimously elected.
One note: Registered creditors have received or will receive a detailed creditors' report, so anyone with a stake in this issue should contact MB with a proof of claim, at the very least to stay informed.

Thanks for the update.
