Quoted from sd_tom:

Maybe dannylite can shed some light.. as #32 is in-between two numbers he claimed?
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-big-lebowski-urban-achievers-list

Just my luck. I got #31 and #33.
I wish I had gotten #32 that one is worth 50k.

Quoted from Rensh:

It isn't fake news but alternative news
I know somebody who is supposed to pick up his Alien at the factory this Friday. I will ask him afterwards his experience. Really very curious to see the Alien. Alien is a killer theme for me. Bought a TBL because it was Dutch pinball, not because of theme allthough I knew the movie. With Alien however ..... . Problem is space, can only have 3 pins. Have now MET and AC/DC which ain't going anywhere and NF which will be replaced with TBL. No space for an Alien

Quoted from highdef:

"I had a former executive from the company, who I believed had taken off with the money, bizarrely invite me to come eat ice cream with him at his apartment somewhere in Europe as his response to my demands for a refund when things looked the bleakest..."
Very Wes Anderson-ish. I can't help but feel slighted that I wasn't invited for ice cream.

The ice cream bit is surely a JPop meme .... after his infamous "went to get ice cream with my dog" blog post in response to people's concerns.

Shouldn't new shit have come to light by now?

Let's hear some GOOD news please! #52 OPTIMISTIC!

As you might know, today we visited ARA, the contract manufacturer of The Big Lebowski™ Pinball, to see if we can work things out. Last week the managing director of ARA left the company and, since he was responsible for the project, we had an opening to talk again.

After two hours of talking, both ARA and DP concluded that it was a useful meeting and that things look positive. In the next two weeks, we will review and work on a new plan, contract and terms. We are very positive about this new situation and will send you more updates when there is news.

Kind regards,

Barry & Jaap

#4511 2 years ago

I see this as momentum in a positive direction. Lets keep our fingers crossed it continues in that direction. I see this as a little victory in the battle, even though the war isn't over yet.

#4512 2 years ago

What's important here is that today's news is both parties trying to work it out. I like this, better off this direction IMO, especially since my machine is sitting in a friggin crate @ ARA! Good luck Barry & Jaap, I'm sending you good vibes and still have faith!

#4513 2 years ago

Vague, but to be expected. I didn't think everything would be solved today. Hopefully things will continue to go well and they can both agree to terms that make all parties happy.

#4514 2 years ago

yep...they stole a play right out of the Andrew Heighway play book, must be a European thing...haha

#4515 2 years ago

Yeah, ofcourse we all wanted to hear shipping tomorrow but that isn't realistic allthough it doesn't hurt to dream

Also I expect DP wants to make very sure that this restart really goes well, no more delays and no more price increases. Crank these babies out in a good pace.

They are talking again and after several months this is a good step in the right direction. Now patience is needed.

#4516 2 years ago

As an observer, the most encouraging thing about the latest news is the prompt communication from DP. I hope that continues for the sake of all involved.

#4517 2 years ago

That $50k TBL on ebay might be $10k by Christmas '17 yet, if all goes well. Barry or Jaap any update on software progress in near term and moving forward?

I dunno, personally I would like to see confirmation from ARA about this productive meeting, given DP's proclivity to bend the truth to suit their needs.

Once bitten, twice shy.

#4519 2 years ago

Great news! Better than what we had. Hopefully we can all move forward (JP and those that have money with them). Maybe I will end up with my TBL after all!

Even with all that's happened, I still want DP to succeed past this and continue producing pinball past TBL and BOP.

Ridiculous. What have you been bitten on? You haven't lost any money yet.

#4521 2 years ago

It will never happen, but viewing the new contract would probably explain a lot of the recent events and statements, and might even put some of the rumor and suspicion to rest.

Unless DP ask them to, they're quite unlikely to say anything ... unless there is another deterioration in relations, and like the now fired MD, they take matters into their own hands in talking directly to their client's customers.

No, but Jaap has lied over and over. But this time he's totally telling the truth!

#4525 2 years ago

Wow, not sure this thread has ever gone five days without a post!

#4526 2 years ago

People are holding their breath?

#4527 2 years ago

I think it's refreshing that everyone is taking a step back for a moment to let things play out. Kudos to all

#4528 2 years ago

On a positive note, I played a friend's Big Lebowski last night and am happy to report FWIW that his game has been pretty much trouble free, it played well, and was a lot of fun (including the latest code with the car modes)!

A little bittersweet for me as I thought of mine sitting in Holland for months now, but a good time nonetheless!

This doesn't stand a chance to upload even though I'm not uploading anything but if it does work and you can see this then well... Crack a Sarsaparilla! Here's to all my EA dudes and ladyfolks as well. Keep The Faith Brothers!

Ps I'll get a better video rig soon and we'll go bowling on shabbos.

Wasn't to bad allthough I feel a little seasick now

Nobody of the TBL users exchanged the music I think ? People seem to like the covers better after all.

#4539 2 years ago

I need to make a backup of the drive and then I was debating messing around.. there's just folders of song names with the music and speech files (forgot what format it is exactly but its not encrypted or anything.. double clicking on it plays the file in Ubuntu so not rocket science).

But I'm pretty happy with the instrumentals.

#4540 2 years ago

While waiting playing 58 at friends place

Salute to my fellow dudes. Hopefully soon for us all

Top notch music in my opinion and sound quality. No need to change the music files for me.

IPDB added a TBL category and put my photos up. If I missed anything or if anybody wants additional pictures let me know.

#4542 2 years ago

It would be great if ARA and DP smooth things over in the next couple of weeks and maybe announce a code update.

#4543 2 years ago

From what little I have heard, the instrumentals do a good job. I only wish there were more of them.

#4544 2 years ago

Stay out of this thread with your Lebowski you bum. Just joking man I can't wait.

Why did you have to ruin it for the rest of us? I've been staring at it for hours and I can't see anything

No worries. The bums always lose

#4547 2 years ago

I suggest you do what your parents did. Man I wish I had my game. Really hoping this works out.

#4548 2 years ago

It will work out ,Im staying positive !

#4549 2 years ago

Staying positive myself. This has to work out or both parties will lose big time. Stated this in the beginning and I still believe this. Hated all the negative stuff so haven't checked in lately. Nice to get back to some quotes from the best movie ever and joke around. It's easy for me I don't have as much money tied up and can relax and day dream about playing this bad boy. I still have not gotten to play a single game yet unfortunately.

#4550 2 years ago

I decided to jump back in with a deposit at Nitro Amusements. They may still have spots if anyone else is interested. There really isn't a risk this way so I'm not saying there is a comparison with you EAs; it's just somebody else holding onto my $1000. I'm really hoping to see this happen as I'd love to own this game. Thank you so much to everyone that has made phone calls, sent emails and attending Jaap's talk at TPF to keep us all informed.
