Thinking about the build order thing, not that it's a big deal, but if all standards are to be built after BSEs, then won't that mean that unless all distributor buyers went BSE, they are going to have to revise the list and lower most numbers? Either that or build the lower numbered standards out of order at the end?

Or just relax maybe play some pinball? Does it really make a difference if you know today or in a few days?

Give spooky a break they deserve a relaxing holiday.

#5812 10 months ago

I believe Joe can slot people wherever he wants. Friends like Kaneda or the toilet guy and past spooky buyers could go up front regardless

Love it. Had me laughing hard wondering how many folks were going to be worked up into a fit. I feel for Joe though, I think you may have just inadvertently blew his phone up. For his sake, I hope he has it turned off.

Out of curiosity, why did some distributors require $1575 deposit if the BS game was supposed to be a $1525 deposit? I've seen it a few times from folks posting.

Cover Paypal fee?

#5822 10 months ago

I don’t think it is unreasonable for the pinball star folks to have an order number by now. He has had a week to organize 100 spots with the aid of PayPal time stamping, understanding that for various reasons certain Spooky repeat buyers, etc may have priority. Modern tools like MS excel are very fast and good.

#5824 10 months ago
Quoted from UNCgump:

This is one reason that limiting production so much was a dumb move. They forked over cash (that could've gone back to employees or business investment) to flippers.

Sorry in advance for the repost from another thread... but some people just don’t get it and maybe there are more eyes on this thread.

——

There was once a businessman who was passing through a small town in southern Wisconsin.
When he stopped for lunch at a local diner, he ran into a pinball manufacturer who was eating lunch with some friends, family and employees.
The businessman saw how happy everyone was at the table and asked the pinball manufacturer how his business was doing?
The pinball manufacturer replied, “Really good... we made 10 pinball machines this week.”
“That’s awesome... but I’ve heard that some companies can build 10 in an hour!”, the businessman exclaimed.
“Maybe so, but I make enough money from these 10 each week to feed my family and keep my employees family fed as well,” the pinball guy said.
The businessman then asked, “So, what is a typical week for you like?”
The pinball manufacturer replied, “Well, I usually wake up early in the morning, work hard all day building pinball machines but leave enough time here and there... in the afternoon, evening or weekends to hang out with my kids and wife. I also frequently join my buddies in town for a drink — we play pinball, sing and dance throughout the night.”
The businessman offered a suggestion to the pinball guy.
“I have a PhD in business management. I could help you to become a more successful person. From now on, you should spend more time at work, hire more employees and try to make as many pinball machines as possible. When you have saved enough money from your profits, you could build a bigger factory and make even more pinball machines. Soon you will be able to afford to buy more licenses, expand even further, expand your company even more. By then, you will have moved out of this town and to Chicago, where you can set up headquarters to manage your other branches.”
The pinball manufacturer continues, “And after that?”
The businessman laughs heartily, “After that, you can live like a king in your own house, and when the time is right, you can go public and float your shares in the Stock Exchange, and you will be rich.”
The pinball manufacturer asks, “And after that?”
The businessman says, “After that, you can finally retire, you can move to a house in the country in southern Wisconsin, wake up early in the morning, maybe work a few hours but only doing what you love, then return home to play with kids, and when evening comes, you can join your buddies for a drink, play pinball, sing and dance throughout the night!”
The pinball manufacturer was puzzled, “Isn’t that what I am doing now?”

This again? Just when I thought we had moved on from the folks whining about the production capacity....people here get it.

There's nothing wrong with being Small Spooky or, for that matter, Big Stern; two different companies thiving in the amusement industry on their own terms.

It didn't move on though did it. Quotes a guy from a few posts earlier calling Spooky "dumb" for rejecting capitalism.

Capitalism is the truly dumb shit Lol

Along with the guy thinking he can run a Boo-tique pinball company better than Spooky does. If you want a capitalist pinball company that only cares about money, then go buy a stern box.

Turns out we had our benefits in the end. I retract any complaint I had about paying more than double for Fang Club.

UNCgump called Spooky business plan "Dumb" which led to an entirely reasonable post by pinzap.... which was then flamed by doers.

I quoted the wrong person as calling Spookys business plan "Dumb". My apologies kermit24.

If we want to get to depths of political systems go start a capitalist v democracy pros/cons thread in "general".

Thank you to Pinzap for posting that enlightening read!

Merry Christmas!

Stop whinging that this Limited Run makes Spooky Dumb.
What would you know about running a boutique pinball company?

I don’t know your deal, and I think you have the wrong person. I have never said the limited run was wrong. Quite the opposite actually. Move along.

#5849 10 months ago

Here's a thought: 4 ball lock. 5 ball wizard multiball

-Locking one ball on one side, then a second on the same side. Now two on one side.
-With the post up, locking the third ball in behind the vacant drop target/side.
-Two on one side, one on the other side, post down. Need to "knock" all 3 balls to one side.
-With the Closed Off loop, the game logic Could Maybe reliably know that there are still three balls trapped within the horseshoe?, just All on one side (acknowledging the "ghost" ball in the three high position).
-Post Up (when logic "loses" the third horseshoe ball = all 3 on one side). With the fourth ball, knocking drops does not let them fall or release multiball, unless the balls are All on one side with post up. Then only the Vacant lock will drop.
-When there are three balls on one side, and post Up, hitting the Loaded side does not release, but hitting the empty side lets the fourth ball in and locks it there!
-So three balls now on one side, one on the other side. The game reads three balls in the horseshoe, but logically knows where the fourth "ghost" or "lost " ball actually is.
-Now there is a 5th ball only left to play with, which pops out of the portal re-entry!

Start 5 Ball Portal Multiball!! - by hitting Either target which causes them both to drop.

Success would be: Releasing 5 ball multiball with first Jackpot being to restore the "lost" (Morty) ball to the top portal (before MB end). If you have only 2 balls left then the jackpot ends the multiball, no super jackpots. The One Time there would be an intentional unclosed portal loop. To restore the staged ball from the wizard 5 ball multiball.

Fail would be: Not releasing 5 ball multiball before draining. The game drops the single ball from the horseshoe, then you get a hurry up to restore equalibrium to dimensions and continue your game, perhaps a MB restart chance? .... Portal before time is out or the universes all end! (game over).

I know it might give Eric and Scott nightmares to create code for this to work.... but just thought it was something that could be pretty cool!
