Anybody want out once it ships? I should have never left the club...
It's very undude like! Come on Dutch, you can't be on holiday for two months. I've got these ready to go and working on a pot pipe mod...
I assume that they continue to build and put games together. Once they have the boards corrected then BOOM!, one big shipment....
Quoted from Gutterballs:
I talked to Melissa at Cointaker today. Thought i would share what i learned. Much of this most of you probably already know, but as you also know it is hard to get current info from DP so I'll share what i learned today. Keep in mind all i know is from Melissa, if you think you know better please share...
DP is only maxing 300 TBLs total. They have shipped around 60 and change so far. There was that board problem, and might be another delay in progress. Cointaker is getting #s 200 to 300. They expect to have them all out the door this year. DP isn't going to announce their next pin project until these all the TBLs ship. All Cointaker's slots are taken and there is a waiting list. I didn't ask how many were on the waiting list because I'm getting a machine, so there.
DP is supposed to release info some time in the next two weeks, hopefully they will talk about when the machines will move out the door,,and talk about the delays and code issues.
Currently DP plans on filling half size containers that hold 21 machines each.
Hope this helps some of you and be careful, there's a beverage here man!
Thanks for the update...I called Melissa a week ago and never recieved a call back..
I'm just waiting for one of you fools to bounce out of Cointake's deposit so I can be in on two of them...
Quoted from GorillaBiscuits:
It's totally refundable. I presume a bunch are going to jump ship. I look forward to getting bumped up a few notches. And if things go totally south I'll sleep well knowing I'm covered. If you've been on the fence this is a great chance to get on the list.
I got back in with Cointaker after Philgate....I want to get a second one to sell in 5 years...lol
Quoted from heryworm:
I called Melissa from cointaker yesterday and ask her if I can use my deposit money for TBL for a different game. She said yes, so I bought a Full Throttle. After seeing all these comments, I don't see this game anytime soon hitting the market. So, I hate what is going on overseas, but 3 years since the announcement and still no game? Sad.
Full Throttle...seriously...get out of this thread
Quoted from iceman44:
They aren't total DBs like Jpop and Kulek
That's why they haven't pressed to F people over by raising more money with more lies
Any rational person with any sense would have to realize shipping 50 games or whatever it was in 3 1/2 isn't going to feed your family
Maybe somebody comes in and fixes this disaster. I doubt it
If I was still an early achiever and knew that it would cost another grand to get my game....fuck it, what is ARA's account number...payment sent, better then losing $8500. I'd forgive Dutch...but never forget.
Quoted from smassa:
Why the fuck would people give these upstart company's money until they are able to prove they can mass produce games. Just sit back & wait it out and buy one once they are ready to ship. Seems like some of you haven't learned anything from past situations.
It seems like you don't realize that Cointaker holds your deposit money...I verified with Chris yesterday. Check yourself and read the thread.
Dutch...you say you are in the right....post the contract then....if everything is truthful now and you are 100% in the right....POST THE PROOF....well unless it's in dutch.....this dude can't read it.
.....F---K it LEBOWSKI!!!,,,,post it anyway!
yep...they stole a play right out of the Andrew Heighway play book, must be a European thing...haha
