The NSNL seem to take some effort (due to the high quality touches) that I dont blame them for not wanting to do very often. However a little Facebook post here and there like they've done recently (but repeat material from NSNL) with some fresh minor content would be nice. Like, the box of parts from Scott arriving on the other side safely, etc.

List of major milestones though I think are NSNL worthy, all of which seem a few weeks (lets hope not a few months) though:
- clips/audio approved - I hope this announcement manifests with some game video highlighting some major lines in use.
- games on the line photos
- process for sorting out shipping (here's what you pay and to whom)
- games boxed up and heading out

Then I will post my own NSNL here of pictures from me unboxing .

Quoted from JustLikeMe:

So, the past two Fridays we've had NSNLs... is there any chance we may receive another today? I know its asking a lot but I'd love for some more info on the game itself!

#403 4 years ago

full of anticipation I already built a topper for my TBL......it´s just the wrong pin underneath the pin.....

We have our numbers......but when does production actually start!?

What's all this talk about delays on MMr, THBLE due to parts shortage.
Will TBL have problems with this aswell?

The 900 pound palate of parts from Scott are in Rotterdam, so they should be at the factory this week.

#406 4 years ago

to add, something to appreciate is that they are using bally/williams parts where possible (and other established things like P-ROC). For instance, believe the giant clear insert / panel over the bowling alley is the CFTBL / Congo window. so as long as PPS and Gerry can get those parts made, they already exist. Granted some stuff is just going to be custom regardless.. but maybe should help.

From watching heighway who's a little more forthcoming about what the issues are.. it's not so much can't get the parts, but getting them to meet expectations of quality. So we'll see.. definitely entering the phase where surprise delays can happen as parts show up and aren't right for whatever reason.

1 week later

Can you confirm the box made it alright? Just trying to pass the time until we get something more substantial like a/v clip approvals or games on the line. Box progress is still progress

Rotterdam is about about a 1.5 hour drive from Aalten....so I would think it would be there. I'm talking with Barry later today so I will ask him...

Only three days until the tenth of the month... any info you could slip under the door would be greatly appreciated.

Was Rotterdam customs? Can only imagine a giant box of a assortment of parts might get some scrutiny.

Man now what am I going to post on the 10th??

#411 4 years ago

Is there something significant about the 10th?

DP needs to have communication set to maximum with their customers! After the JPOP and Predator blow up people have a hell of a lot less patience and risk tolerance. Keep the updates coming guys even if they are small.

I feel "like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know..."

#416 4 years ago

Box is set up to be slid under the door by the tenth. Held up a few days in customs...

#417 4 years ago

It's time for some pics from the factory don't you think?

Yes! That is exactly what we need right now.

Absolutely. Or even some updates on code or voice calls. Any sort of update really!!!

#420 4 years ago

Yep the feeling I have is that next month make or break Q3 timeline. September needs to be all about cranking machines out and shipping and then reshipping if anyone is going to see a machine in Q3. So back tracking, August has got to be all about assemblies and then games coming together. This month is likely parts stockpiling.. Like the giant box from USA I imagine for the basics (Williams/bally parts). Seems like their should be a stack of playfields (both full and mini) piling up somewhere right now if everything is going to fall into place right?

Luckily the outstanding (as far as I know) universal approvals for callouts/video clips is all software, it doesnt hold up anything but final launch software loads which can be just about when games go out.

Anyways, make or break it time at DP. Or it not Q3.. At least by Christmas!

I don't think its make or break. Since when has a pinball without stern on it shipped on time? I'd hate to be be in DP's shoes. One part delay and the whole line is frozen. Building pinball is a nightmare.

#422 4 years ago

Make or break for Q3 I mean (their latest deadline). I am starting to get a Q4 vibe just from the quiet over there but they've always been pretty quiet.. hopefully in a "slow and steady" wins the race kind of way.

Also, in other news over in the BOP2.0 thread looks like they've said they are getting ready for producing a second batch of those in August (per their website: http://www.dutchpinball.com/order) Guessing the BOP2.0's making it to shows recently brought in the last of the minimum necessary to do a run.

Personally I'd love a NSNL dedicated to code more that anything else at this point - just to get some idea of where the code is going!

A picture is coming of a pile of playfields....
stay tuned....

New shit is coming to light?

#426 4 years ago

I hope it shows a pile of at least 58 ps's

Wow and all us after?

#428 4 years ago

58 is about the maximum you could pile up. a few more and it will tilt over

#429 4 years ago

Funny.. I emailed Barry yesterday asking about news on TBL production. DP are working on an NSNL showing production or some stuff that is being assembled whilst waiting for other parts to arrive.

Barry said maybe this week, most likely next

#430 4 years ago

Go, Barry, go!

Throw us a bone, here, man!

#444 4 years ago

Idk what it is but that video makes me want to shout f**k yes!

Anybody want out once it ships? I should have never left the club...

PM me.

#447 4 years ago

My wife and I met with the company we're going to use to build our weekend (for now) and home out in the country we'll retire to.

I saw the video as we were waiting to start the meeting and suggested during the meeting that we add a room for my TBL pin, sports memorabilia and the like.

She's onboard with that.

#448 4 years ago

I'm on the cointaker load. How do I get emails and videos with out waiting from here?

#449 4 years ago
Quoted from lllvjr:

Can try to sign up for newsletter here: http://www.thebiglebowskipinball.com/contact

Or talk to cointaker, you might be on a load of 1 as they (cointaker) haven't been advertising that they are even for sale yet. Last I heard distributor sales weren't even to begin till Q4 / when games were shipping so you might be in a quasi state with cointaker letting you pre order one of the non preorder units (the rest of us have gotten added to the newsletter by buying preorder machines).

Can also PM Burningman, maybe he can get you on list

#450 4 years ago

Very pleased and impressed with today's video. Well done DP!
