SpookyLuke when can we expect gameplay footage???

Congrats on selling out BTW!!!

#7902 4 months ago
Quoted from Capn12:

Awesome, congrats Spooky! Knew it was going to be gone on Day 1, despite some folks wanting to think they'd be around for days, even weeks...

Such an odd thing to 'stick it to em' about...

#7903 4 months ago
Quoted from unigroove:

Despite all the stress, I hope the Spooky crew is enjoying this success

Yes,then start building these Mofo's tomorrow!!

#7904 4 months ago
Quoted from Slog8484:After 35 minutes I just went to the nitro website and it took 30 seconds

That’s what I did.
Hopefully Nitro didn’t oversell whatever number of machines they were allotted.

#7905 4 months ago
Quoted from SpookyLuke:

We are going to do our best to go through and sort through rejected orders and make sure people get treated fairly.
32 ultraman
56 halloween

Wow congrats ! Happy for your success !

#7906 4 months ago
Quoted from SpookyLuke:

We had almost 900 orders in the first 20 minutes. Most failed due to velocity triggers

That is incredible...well done spooky!

#7907 4 months ago

Really cool of Spooky for sending the update. Really love these guys from Wisconsin. F the Packers tho.....

#7908 4 months ago

Congrats Spooky, another very successful launch.

Hope to see one or both of these out in the wild.

I will get you guys something decent atleast gameplay wise and rules explanation in the next few days here.

#7910 4 months ago
Quoted from Beechwood:

I respectfully disagree. I will bet you a wooden nickel that they sell out in 1 day. (HWN)

Someone owes me....

#7911 4 months ago

Game play and rules would be very nice. Good to hear.

Aaron Rogers feels the same way and he ordered a CE.

#7913 4 months ago

Do we know what the order #s started at? #11001? Or was it higher than that?

#7914 4 months ago
Quoted from Beechwood:

Someone owes me....

I didnt take the bet!

#7915 4 months ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Place your bets!
Prediction:
Spooky sells out of Ultraman at 12:37 p.m. EST today.
Spooky sells out of Halloween at 4:24 p.m. EST today.
In this case "sells out" is defined as no longer available Spooky direct from their website.

O man... it looks like Spooky may actually beat my prediction!

Suckers bet to begin with..lol....If you didn't see it coming means you are totally out touch with todays pinball market and still think you can buy working DMD pins for 1k..

Had my order get rejected by my CC at 10:08am EST when I finally got in...refreshed for another hour and finally got to order way later at order # 11732 :/

#7919 4 months ago

Congrats Spooky.

#7920 4 months ago

This is my second Spooky pin... I'm in! Halloween BS 11693 @11:00 oh yeah!

Quoted from SpookyCharlie:

This is Bug... Bug is at his desk with rules in front of him. On the other end of the headphones on Slack chat, is Bowen Kerins double checking Bug's rules. Bowen has more world championships than you.

This is great. Bowen is a big asset, I'm sure he's being a great mentor.

But I feel like I want to say one thing: Spooky is a family company. They've always been that way. They don't always do things the way I would, I don't agree with every decision Charlie makes. It's his company though, not mine! And he's clearly shown that his way works.

And you know what? Bug doing the rules is f—ing great, and if people don't like it then maybe just pause for a moment before you start banging on your keyboard. Just think for a second about what you want to say, and who's reading it.

Who here has been around a while? Who's watched this family go from passionate enthusiasts to a success story that sells out their runs in hours? How could you not be stoked for Bug to be doing the rules for a game? Imagine sending him a message through time telling him he'd be doing this 7 years ago.

We can nitpick the small stuff, like Exposed LED Gate, and do the usual backseat driving on this and that. But it would be cool to see more people happy for Bug instead of worrying he's going to somehow screw it all up. I'm sure Charlie is enormously proud of him, and he should be.

My two cent rant.

Is Pinside calling this HWN or H78? Has that been determined yet?

Had my order get rejected by my CC at 10:08am when I finally got in (nightmare)...refreshed for another hour and finally got to order way later at 11732 :/

I feel your pain. Same happened to me. Lost hundreds of spots. But maybe I will be #666!!!

We are going to have a 3 man team sort through all failed and successful orders and make it as fair as we can. We adjust as fast as we can to issues my friends. Already spitballing how to handle this next launch.

#7926 4 months ago

Spooky: Can you speak to when deliveries begin for each and what the capacity is per week and all that good stuff?

#7927 4 months ago
Quoted from SpookyLuke:

Couple order velocity filters tripped. On phone with company. Fixing now should be up any second

Hey, remember to warn them before Evil Dead goes on sale in 2023.

AWS solves these kind of problems.

I think Halloween might sell out first. It closed that 750 game gap in a hurry.

Arm Chair quarterbacking, but maybe the store provider just needed a heads up to not trigger all their alarms and allow more traffic. If not then a more robust provider, as popular as spooky is we shouldn't be able to break it

You don't want Shopify, it will be worse

I am so glad I jumped on right at 9. Ultraman acquired!

#7939 4 months ago
Quoted from ultimategameroom:

That’s what I did.
Hopefully Nitro didn’t oversell whatever number of machines they were allotted.

FWIW, I went to Nitro's site and it let me add 10000 of them to my cart.

#7940 4 months ago

Confirmed all HW and UM sold out in less than 2 hours. HOLY PINBALL

#7941 4 months ago
Quoted from mpdpvdpin:They’ve not shown the full gameplay because the game is not ready to be shown. I’m sure there is still a ton of coding left to do, even Stern struggles with getting the programming up to par for gameplay videos on some titles.

Based on comments they've made - its been about what they are ALLOWED to show (could be held up with lag in approvals, etc)

Ok this may be crazy out there,, but what about a lottery of some type. Random lottery numbers are drawn for Fang members and you get a email saying you won a drawling and can purchase in a 48 hour time window or something ? I mean its not as glamourous but it would be a smoother platform.

I hope this means that Spooky will check the website logs and assign our place in line, based on when we first got the "order received" error message. Seems only fair...

Alice in Wonderland Spooky ?

Feel like I am in chemistry again...

Can already see this going sideways fast....

Shopify handles bigger drops with more demand than this with ease if you pay for upgraded hosting during the drop.

Quoted from insight75:

We pick up parts from Terry Friday they will be hot on the line Monday. Will be a bit slow at first due to lead times with computer parts however we have massive quantities coming in when they arrive. We ended Rick and morty over 20 per week. We are going to say 18 months but make these as fast as we can. If we can get them all done in 12 months we will! Basically we will continuously grow throughout the build!

#7949 4 months ago

Now the question is, will the Standard be more rare than the CE?

I had to go CE....what a beauty of a machine

I had the same thought. They were absolutely pre notified.
