If this is just that DP owes ARA x amount of money....tell everyone. Maybe most people will kick in a payment or Pay In Full to get them the funds.
If ARA is trying to pull a deal and up the price by 1,000 because they have DP over a barrel.....not good!

#3057 2 years ago

Well!....there ya have it!

#3060 2 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

So from ARA's point of view, based on that email, this points to DP as simply not having sufficient funds to pay.
But DP is saying ARA want's 1000 more euro per machine.
ARA is calling DP liars by saying that there was never a problem with parts for production of the pins.

Exactly....but this might be easier to fix then if it's just money. We need to find out how much ARA is owed.

Is DP just Out of Money? I understand now that the deposits are held by the distributors.

#3240 2 years ago

Didn't they say in Pinball Magazine that DP and ARA are partners now?

#3333 2 years ago

People are very forgiving! If DP just comes on here…comes clean, explains the situation and options, many would be ready to help.

It's amazing how nobody actually knows shit, but can make up plenty of stuff to keep the bitch fest going.....

The New Guys, if a deal is made, would probably just offer ARA a buyout of all the parts and machines....right?

Fortune cookie reads - Outlook murky, await reveal of financial and production plans and ask again.

"Will I be getting my TBL machine THIS year?"

#5845 2 years ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

Of course, the closer to production DP get, the more pressure there will be on ARA to agree to sell off all the parts and completed machines.

Yes...I brought this up a while ago. If they start making new machines and ARA can't (by law or contract) sell existing games or parts, it would be stupid for them not to cut a deal with the new manufacturer....and wash their hands of the whole mess....

Quoted from CNKay:

That's some funny shit right there!
And those are engineering samples.
Keep drinking white Russians and maybe you'll forget you lost all that money.
You dudes need a reality check.

It seems like for them to get the rest of the money....something has to be sent in....

Ultimately, pinball is the wide west

I agree! Er, and it's Wild West...

What is going to happen to those games still taking up space at ARA?
I'm surprised no one is knocking on their door trying to "work a deal"!

#6211 2 years ago

I don't understand the worry here. If they do nothing, your money is gone and they go under. They are trying something...and if it works, you get your machine. Nothing to do but wait....

#6214 2 years ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Uncertainty causes more drama than straight up failure.

I understand...it just seems there is no other choice here...

Forgot to post this earlier but when I picked up my Alien last week at cointaker I saw this. Talk about an absolute tragedy. Damaged during shipping!

There are some here who would have that fixed and running in one day!

Quoted from O-from-DO:

I would say the original machine was a 10/10 and the new one a 7/10

Those figures sound great to me. A prototype and it's already 7/10....holy shit!!

Quoted from kapper:

It's only been 5 weeks!!!!!! How dare you ask for an update. Barry is just getting over the flu and I heard a rumor he was hit by a car. Sucks because he was just getting around to learning the art of pinball.

...and it's Chinese New Year!

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

they probably both are partially wrong.

We don't know this.

We don't know this.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

ARA will be unwilling to continue working with DP to build more pins because of all the nonsense DP created.

We don't know this.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Also Universal will be unwilling to work with ARA or their successor because of all the nonsense that has gone on.

We don't know this.

I don't know what the f#ck you're all about or where your wisdom comes from, but I gotta tell ya, you are an interesting person. I hope we can cross paths one day and share a couple bottles of scotch or rum. I know I would regret all the booze that we consumed but I sure would revel in all your stories and humor.

Anytime, my friend! Cigars and drinks on me!

Quoted from CoinTaker:

Quoted from seenev:

Because they are implying that they got nothing out of this

Yes we got paid to handle the transactions. I have invested many hours with this. And still many more getting parts in. It was in no means a large sum of money like you seem to think. If you can say you work for free then kudos to you. What I said is do the math. Please give me a call. I’d love to discuss with you

seenev....PLEASE don't call Melissa and embarrass yourself and us....

Quoted from pinballslave:

My personal wager is that this will not be the case... don't forget that some of the parts on hand are for 200 games... I'm betting that we see an EA game made within the first 10 games made...
