Quoted from sammiesguys:

Mine is being delivered this Wednesday, coming from Cointaker. I ordered mid May 2021, and paid the invoice just about a month and a half ago. Anyone else in this shipment?

Mid May? Are you some type of public personality? I think someone last weeks said they were a day one order and they had just received their machine. I was a day 4 order from Cointaker and crickets.

Lol, sorry. Meant 2020, which I had in my previous posts. My mistake. Apparently things have gotten so bad in my head, I’m mixing up years. Will correct in original post.

It’s all good, I was about to ask for your connect.

Wow, well done

That's about as fast as I've seen someone getting a game. Hopefully production will begin to match capacity.

I was a little surprised myself, even though my invoice stated games shipping from the Netherlands May 8. I hadn’t heard anything else about games arriving until I got the email from FedEx earlier today, and then shortly after an email from cointaker saying it had shipped.

I was pleasantly surprised. Now I just hope to hear others have theirs arriving as well, I know plenty of people have been waiting a long time.

Congratulations!! The order fulfillment here is hilarious. No rhyme or reason. I’m November of 2019, I just paid my invoice last week, still yet to get a delivery date. But hey I’m happy as long as we all get em

#13108 11 days ago

13 months & 19 months.

That's the length of time from order to expected delivery for these last two TBLs that we know about.

My 8-10 month expected wait time is not looking so great, but hey I'm just happy to be here.

Quoted from TomDK:

"Donny, you are out of your element"
New code is not perfect but a great enhancement ... and if you want you can bring in the original sound with voices ...
Maybe you have slept over the last month

Thanks. Strange, I keep up on this thread (one of the few who honestly read it from page 1 all the way through over several weeks), and I didn’t see anything about a recent code update, nor an option relating to the sound/voice choices. Was it here or on a different thread?

#13110 11 days ago

I received an email from CoinTaker yesterday (7th) saying my pin has shipped. I don't have any tracking information or anything as of yet. My guess is that I will likely have it sometime next week. I will give you all an update when it arrives with final dates, etc.

March 2021 0.55 was released. changelog is here too.

no option for adding voices/sounds unless you know where they are stored and hack your way in

Another Lebowski made its way home safe and sound. Receiving this machine yesterday was surreal! After a few tweaks, I’m enjoying this machine more than any other machine I’ve played. It’s hilarious…

Special thanks to all of the EA’s out there who chose to stay committed to Dutch Pinball. You all made this possible. I hope you all get your games ASAP.

For non EA’s, the initial deposit was made in late June 2020. I didn’t hear anything from CoinTaker until I was invoiced late April 2021.

Adjusting the playfield pitch to 6.5 degrees made the scoops work perfectly. I had some issues with them beforehand.

The ball likes to get stuck in the Jesus shot, so if anyone has some advice on that I’d appreciate it.

Alright Dudes - That about does er’ for me. See you down the trail.

Congrats! What carrier delivered your pin? I have not received a tracking number or anything yet but CoinTaker did mention it was shipped. Lovely cat. It looks like it approves of your new pin.

Mine arrived not too long ago as well. Unfortunately, it’s gonna be a short while before I get it set up. But I’m happy to say that it arrived safely. (At least the box did)
Can’t wait to get playing and see others receiving theirs as well!

Well guys I canceled my order. I was told 8 months from the start. 3 months in I checked and was told I was 5 months out. Hearing that people are at a year and a half to just pay in full and I think there are better things I can do with my funds.

Understandable. It definitely takes longer than 8 months. The good news is they seem to be shortening the time between payment in full and shipping. Happy hunting!

Sorry to hear that. Can’t say I blame you. With the way the orders seem to bounce around, it’s hard to blame anyone that doesn’t want to wait.
For what it’s worth, Melissa was actually pretty accurate in the timing of mine. (13 months to my door) But the communication part of it wasn’t particularly great. Whether that is from DP or cointaker I don’t know.

LOL... That's all I can do is laugh. A year is a pretty standard timeline here if you actually read most peoples experiences in this thread. I'm sure the next person in line will be happy to get a machine that much faster.

#13123 9 days ago

Very happy, got mine yesterday. Had to do some tweaking but nothing major. Took about a year from deposit to delivery, worth the wait, this pin is so cool lol.If your waiting it will be worth it.

#13124 9 days ago

Yep can't believe anything they say, just assume 1 year after deposit.

I agree it does seem faster for PIF to ship, as it should be as that's complete BS for CT.

That would be the one piece of advice...when you get invoiced for the PIF, really question the timing from there.

That's unfortunate. I actually think the orders are going to be delivered at a faster pace. Time will tell though.

#13126 9 days ago

Sorry to hear that. Definitely takes rolling with the punches so to speak… in my situation I was told 6 months a year and a half ago, but I stayed because I know it will be worth the wait!! Might be able to find one used of nib for that fact
Cheers

#13127 8 days ago

I know this has been discussed but I can't remember what's up -- do the TBLs shipping now still have the 5 year old playfields? Or are we starting to see the newly manufactured playfields roll out yet?

#13128 8 days ago

Likely old playfields.

I think the playfields were among the parts ordered in bulk when ARA were assembling games.. so maybe 300 ish playfields.

No kidding. Presumably reads entire thread and still orders, THEN decides its taking to long.

DP has risen from near ashes and its impressive to say the least. If i were in, I'd stay in. Well done DP!

As I think most of you know Jaap Nauta, cofounder of DP, was diagnosed with terminal cancer I think like 2 yrs ago.

Thanks to experimental therapy he stayed among us longer as expected but yesterday evening he passed away .

He is already far over a year not active with DP so it has no influence in day to day business but he will be missed. Our thoughts are with his wife and family.

So we see again, there are more important things in live as pinball.

That's terrible. He put up quite the fight, I wish he would have won.

#13133 6 days ago

Sad to hear this.

#13134 6 days ago

Man, my wishes go out to his friends and family. Never easy hearing a story like this

#13135 6 days ago

So sorry to hear this. RIP.

#13136 6 days ago

Indeed. Just got my Lebowski yesterday and this is the first post I saw coming into the owners thread. Condolences go out.

#13137 6 days ago

It is sad to read this, and my thoughts are with his family.

#13138 6 days ago

Very sad, condolences to his family and friends.

#13140 4 days ago

I'm gonna put in some games on my TBL and raise a Mt. Dew toast in honor of Jaap tonight.

I will join you as well but with a glass of wine!

#13142 4 days ago

Whatever happened to Caucasians and Oat Sodas, man? But a glass raised is a glass raised, and despite all the troubles the TBL production has gone through, anyone that brought more pinball into this world should be remembered for their contributions to this hobby that we love.

The faults of our brothers we write upon the sand, their virtues upon the tablets of love and memory.
