And the Dr dude section is a duplicate of the Blackwater section word for word.
Am I the only one who had the Blackwater chapter copied word for word onto the Dr Dude chapter?
I'm just guessing here but I'm thinking a lot of promises were made, Todd did his part, and the publisher cut every corner possible. The odds of volume 2 are zilch.
Sorry you got burned Todd.
Now that you updated volume one will you be replacing unhappy customer’s original copies?
The paper quality was so bad that I quickly stopped looking at the pictures. Looks like Todd took some beautiful pictures, completely wasted by the newspaper they were printed on.
And Andrew deftly avoided the question about how original purchasers were going to be compensated for so many errors. If I had known, I would have waited for the 2nd printing.
Quoted from PinballBuzz:
Wow what a personal attack I’m sure that this fourm was not meant for attacking people outside the topic we are discussing. Giving away personal information I’m sure is a direct violation. should you not be banned for doing, Moderators where are you please help !!
Dragons den yea got the deal!!!
You did it to yourself. All you had to say is nothing and go abut your business. But no, you gave detailed attacks on a respected pinball member and expected that to go well for you? You should have just said nothing or that you were really excited about book two...and left it at that. Gary Stern doesn't come on here and answer every attack on the Beatles or Ghostbusters code.
Is this your first day on the Internet?
What about people who bought the crappy first edition. Will we get a new book or are we just suckers? I notice you keep dodging the question.
Quoted from JodyG:
This guy sounds a lot like Andrew Heighway, another notorious pinball scammer. It is pretty telling that he will not answer the one simple question asked of him about refunds. I hope Rondogg posts his response on here, since "editor" isn't man enough to.
The notion that he equates success and character with a bunch of material possessions is pretty laughable as well. All the while, refusing to sign his actual name. What a knob.
I PM'd Andrew on Sunday and emailed to the address on the WebSite on Monday. I haven't received a response as to how he would compensate people like me who bought the rough draft edition.
Quoted from JodyG:
People who genuinely have money, don't feel the need to brag about it. I like your theory also. The other theory I have is that his ego is so huge, he doesn't know how to take a loss (or any criticism whatsoever). He therefore makes every bit of negativity personally. Honestly, if he has his hand in so many businesses/assets, how does he even have time to respond on Pinside? Signing posts on Pinside as "Editor" and refusing to sign his real name here shows his pompous ego at work as well. Could be a little bit of column A and column B. Probably has a bunch of assets he doesn't actually own outright, and is leveraged to the max, as most of these "entrepreneur" clowns that have their toes dipped in 25 different pools usually do.
Tax losses to offset gains elsewhere. For every gutter rake there's a pinball book.
Todd - you should offer a discount for people who purchased Pinball Adventures (ala Deeproot).
FYI, I emailed them 19 days ago to see what my options were for the duplicate chapter and pm'd him here. No answer.
Quoted from T2S88:
My wife got me this piece of crap book for Xmas, at least her heart was in the right place
I read the first 10 pages or so then got to the dr dude section that was just a copy and paste place filler with the text from a previous game a few pages before hand. I was unable to go any further.
How could something this terrible even be possible. I would expect better from a 11 year olds half arsed effort on a school assignment done at 10pm on a Sunday night the day before it was due.
It even smells bad and feels damp somehow haha, look like it was printed on a $17 inkjet printer with knockoff eBay ink refills.
The guy who made this needs to be shot.
I hope you place this as a review on Amazon. The more people who post a review to warn people, the better.
