That's what I love about this Deeproot thread, since there are no pinballs there, it leaves the door open to a lot of cool topics !

Doesn’t mean squat. Just google red soles shoes and look how many designers have them and they don’t have legal cases against them.

It’s been going on since 2011 , it’s hilarious that a man sells shoes with a red sole for crazy amounts of money then has to use that money to try to defend to be the only one to have shoes with red soles. What a waste of time. Like this thread.

Louboutin $85MIL
Deeproot Pins $0

So sounds like Squat is at least $38Mil?

What did we learn here?

A waste of time that created a shoe maker almost worty a billion dollars. Not your every day Al Bundy brand.

Hey everyone. We would like to keep this thread on topic. We have issued several moderations and deleted a bunch of off topic posts over the last day.
If there is nothing to say about or in some way relating to Deeproot then please simply say nothing rather than post off topic photos that simply fill space. Thank you -

Is that still in play?

I am with you. Every time I see 12 new posts I am like hey, must be some new news about this new pinball company, then click on it, and nothing I was expecting.

Definately not. Unless red F'n soles is somehow related to DR.

You have to wait til you see 70 new posts. That usually means Deeproot posted a new drawing on twitter.
At 100 new posts it’s because Robert is about to sue someone.

How many of you have paid a deposit on a DR pin?

How many of you have gotten reimbursed on the Jpop disaster from DR?

I took the pin versus a lesser cash benefit. Others took the cash and got PAID

Anyone bitching about DR coming soon has ZERO credibility other than they are either bored to tears like Odiner with nothing else to do all day but opine on Pinside.

It's not long now. The pitchforks are just getting warmed up for the haters no matter what. F ing hilarious because all you geniuses know wtf is going on.

I'm LMAO right now while i eat a bowl of chili.

Hope you are drinking a beer with that chili.

Glad you picked getting a pin over the money. I would have done the same if I was in that boat. I almost got reeled in on AIW on the tale end of it, as I was very close to sending in a deposit.

I bitch about DR because the guy has been bragging for years anywhere between pinball is easy and wait til we come and show to every pinball maker how all they did was crap.

You don’t have to hope. Iceman’s definitely drinking beers with that chili, and almost certainly harder stuff as well. His liver has filed numerous restraining orders on him.

Literally what has happened to me 20 times on this thread....

This is why I am going to HAP. I want to see what's going on. No BS. No hype train. Simply what they have ready to show.

I hope.

Anyone else think their statements on Houston are some sort of deception, and the game they show in Houston will be complete and available for purchase?

With a 10'x20' booth, I think not.

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Their statement that 1) 2 early prototypes will be present, and 2) game will ship early next year are not really conversant with each other.

They've been working on RAZA for more than 2 years, JPop a total of 7 or 8. If it is an 'early' prototype, then is development likely to speed up exponentially over the course of a few short months? Seems unlikely. Of course they could just be managing expectations by saying early, and it is almost ready to go.

Their spectacular misses tend to suggest otherwise though. If it truly is 'early', I think we can take it as read that things are going very, very badly.

I'm guessing you are in the minority on this one.

Oof. Those are some long odds... chance of new game 1:10000. Chance of lots of smoke & mirrors? 100%

Lol. I NEVER drink the harder stuff. Maybe tequila once a year. My liver is great, along with all of my other numbers

Beer and chili are Texas staples as Pinballmaniac knows

Throw in some jalapeños, on everything, and you’ll live a long time!

Nobody disputes Robert acted like a grade A jerk early on. He’s a lawyer, I think he’s learned his lesson

#5227 34 days ago
Quoted from iceman44:

I drink beer, the harder stuff, and roll numbers. Then I wake up to find some nine ball turned the clock back an hour. My liver doesn't seem to mind.

#5228 34 days ago

Wow I havent heard of anyone referring to that as “rolling numbers” since the Freak Brothers. Thats old school for sure lol.
Are they still selling “lids” over there?

And there you have it, Cheap Trick will be the next up to date pinball theme. lol.

#5231 33 days ago

Less than 2 weeks away.....I'm going to fill out an application while there...ijs

#5232 33 days ago

So I haven't seen this discussed ... or at least in this thread ... Why is deeproot linked on the ifpa main menu? Seems ambitious unless they gave them lots of $$$....

#5233 33 days ago

If you go to About > Sponsors on the IFPA site, you’ll note that there are exactly two “Diamond Sponsors”: Stern and Deeproot. These are the two companies that have presence on the top nav bar of the site.

With all the hype, will it include self cleaning playfield??

#5236 32 days ago
Quoted from chad:

With all the hype, will it include self cleaning playfield??

Joking aside, there are such things as self-repairing "smart coatings" that can also repel dirt. It poses some questions like; How expensive would it be to coat an entire playfield in it? Would it offer protection against pitting as opposed to just scratches? etc

It's something that hasn't been done in pinball yet... but it might prove to be too expensive to implement regardless of it being a new "innovation".

#5237 32 days ago

And where will all the dirt go thats now usually on the playfield ?

These can be made smaller

Excited to see what is revealed and what is the timeline for the release of games. Hoping it's only a small wait as we have a lot of interested customers.

I am expecting a TPF reveal and ready to ship shortly after.

Yes, Deeproot even confirmed multiple game reveals at the upcoming Texas Pinball Festival 2019 in March. The 5 days of Deeproot.

Now we'll see part of what they are up to with the RAZA prototypes next week at the Houston Arcade and Pinball Expo. This is why I am confident in saying TPF2020 will be the big reveal. Sure some of the games maybe shown or announced sometime before then, but I would believe TPF will be the first time for the public to play any production games.
