The problem I see with tearing a company down prematurely is it can create a self fulfilling prophecy. The people at risk are the employees and the investors.

Until they start asking for pre-order money, I don't see their angle in ripping off the pinball community.

Quoted from Astropin:

What sucks is one bad apple might destroy the whole thing. Looks like there are some good people involved (hired) with deeproot. It's unfortunate that many (including myself) will not buy anything from them as long as JPOP is on the payroll. (period). But that's up to them...they have a choice.

Consider that if they're on the up-and-up and are successful, they're offering some form of restitution to all the buyers who had money deposited with JPOP and aren't part of the lawsuit.

Maybe Jpop's involved because they wanted his IP and patents for their machines, can't think of any other reason.

I'm hoping they succeed for the sake of myself and all the others who were and are presently involved.

As someone else mentioned, as long as they're paying their employees and not asking for money, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and get past JPOP's involvement.

Quoted from flynnibus:

If you expect a Ferrari and get delivered a yugo.... the fact you got a yugo won’t change your disappointment.

Yes, but what if you expected nothing and someone gave you a Yugo?

Quoted from flynnibus:

Do you really think all the JPOP people are going to be happy regardless of what they get?

Let's say happier if they get anything out of this.

Honestly, I'm still not expecting anything.

I came to terms with the loss long ago. I wouldn't have pursued a law suit anyway so I have nothing more to lose.

Speaking for myself, I will consider anything I get from DR a pleasant surprise, as they weren't responsible for my loss.

Quoted from JodyG:

They never said they are giving free games, did they?

They are offering a game, games or cash to past JPOP customers, depending on the amount given to JPOP.

If anyone is interested in the exact terms Deep Root is offering to past JPOP customers, the information is public. See link below.

Quoted from homebrood:

Correction, he played a marginal role on the design team on several top 20 machines and took credit for all the work most of which wasn't even his!

Hard to know what the truth is but judging by his actions on Magic Girl and RAZA, I believe the above.

Quoted from Cheeks:

Please don't make me argue this point...it hurts my soul to take jpop's side in any discussion.

I feel your pain. Sorry for making you go there.

Everyone but jpop got applause after they introduced themselves and shared their story.. that’s gotta hurt..

Has anyone taken a picture of his back yet?

Quoted from JodyG:

As for the fiberglass laminated plywood, the one tricky thing would be leveling the inserts.

Perhaps they could laminate a hardtop type playfield to a cnc routed piece of plywood. Plastic inserts woudn't be needed if the hardtop could support the ball over the insert hole. Would greatly simplify playfield production.

BTW, It is common knowledge by anyone who has inquired that BTTF is not available to be licensed.

Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Let's just imagine you'd have cutouts where the switches would be (like the tracks in Anki) and one infrared illumination inside the cab. Programming knows where the "switches" are located. (Could do this with the given inserts also.) Camera tracks those.
Light falls trough = switch open
Light is blocked (because Ball rolls over) = switch is closed

Sounds like a great idea! Would still need to power the individual IR transmitters but they would just be on 100% or better, pulsed to conserve power. No more (or greatly reduced) wiring the playfield into a switch matrix.
