Quoted from gregh43:
why are you picking only on the aussie guy? he's not the only one selling machines with tables on it. there's others as well Ultra VP,
VpCabs, Pinball King,. there's Ads out there to people selling plug and play Hard Drives with tables and software installed. The Aussie guy selling his Vp machines are well built with high end computer components. you showing Arcade 1 ups machine is correct. its JUNK . those machines are not suitable for Visual Pinball. sure you can modify it and hook up a pc . but it's junk to run the top quality tables. Not everyone can build a machine or have the time to learn to build a machine. I plan on getting a machine from the Austrailian guy you trashed. I don't need any tables installed on the machine. just want a top quality machine . plus his machine comes with a warranty.
You obviously have your mind made up. When you get it, I suggest you show off your machine and where you got it to VPUniverse, so the home base of table creators can give a response instead of just myself. Hopefully you’ll be coding some tables that take hundreds of hours to produce and uploading them for free also, so you can feel what it’s like to see people make profit off your work you unselfishly give. Thats really the ONLY thing people ask is not to redistribute the tables…other than that for the most part everything is all good and 100 percent FREE for just not transferring the files anywhere else, OR DEAL WITH THE PEOPLE THAT DO….and here you are saying “I don’t care, I’m giving him funds”.
David is by FAR the worst offender and is supported and sponsors the vile VPD. Your post was a nice middle finger to everyone in the virtual creative community, that’s OK though, as long as you make out with your “way cool machine”, fook the rest.
Looking forward to your creations. Something like GOT would be nice….let us know when your done
PS, my response is more at new folks overall, with the same mind set as the guy buying from people like David, making excuses….not just directed at whom I responded to directly, so please don’t take it personal in the most literal sense. Everyone is new at some time, there’s just no easy way to say “your doing it wrong”
