    It breaks my heart to see crap like this!

    This is one of the few reasons why I’ve made my decision to no longer work on tables!

    Just sad, realistically every author/contributor here works for a simple “thanks” and now guys want to make money off that as well.

     

    Just kills me some of the quotes from the add:

    Visual Pinball X COLLECTION 2017+ Server Update 1 year!

    In addition to this pack access for ONE YEAR to Update server. Updated weekly with all the new releases (only the best tables selected, tested, personally configured), released new tables, update tables already present, sw update necessary released later this year. In short, everything you need to expand and keep up to date your collection!
    The content is not quantifiable, there may be dozens of new or little, it depends on the developers. To date as many as 30 new tables and revisited not part of the basic collection and coming many more!

    The material included is OPEN SOURCE. NOT PROVIDE 
    SUPPORT AFTER SALES OF ANY KIND. BUY ONLY IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING.

    Yeah I have seen this stuff all over ebay…I didn’t say anything I thought you guys knew about it already.. As VisualPinball improves so do the tables and so increases the interest in it.. no getting around that.. and its fight you can’t win.

    I bought this table.  It really isn’t any better than the one you can get for free.   :unsure:

    I can’t control this kind of thing and I don’t let it get to me or stop me from doing something I really enjoy.

    As shitty as it is that these people are trying to make money from other’s hard work, I hope that the folks that frequent these forums will feel similar to Roth above.  Those of us that come to these forums seem truly interested in pinball and just good clean banter.

    I greatly appreciate everything you guys do and for making this a fun hobby and place to chat up our love for pinball.

    Shocker, now everyone knows how the movie industry feels (game, music, art, book publishing or any industry where your works can be sent or made digital) and so on. But I do agree with all of you that it totally sucks, because I appreciate all of the hard work and I also look forward to when a table will be completed.

    HF, you had to see that one coming. You’re like the two guys that started Facebook (hey, look at my stuff), then someone else steals another great idea. Just a shame that being nice or helpful in this world doesn’t get you very far. With 99.9% of the world, it’s all about the money.

    People always get mad at me for what I say (could really care less). My point is that even with it being FREE or making money, people still might not be so happy. Example, all of the builders made the Metallica Premium Monsters table (it’s a hobby or whatever) and you give the product away for free, great (because I couldn’t play it on my PC otherwise, so thank you). But even for free, I bet if you wrote Stern and said to them, hey look what I made with your property and I give it to everyone in the world for free. Stern most likely wouldn’t be as ecstatic as you. Then for someone to turn around and sell the copyrighted property as the person above on Ebay, is just unreal. I’m glad that Stern and others let these sites exist, maybe they have better things to do besides worrying about all of us.

    Funny last time I heard it was 1% all they care about is money, and 99% scrounging for money!

    Why would somebody pay for this in the first place?  They are free and not even hard to find.

    I see some things on ebay and think, man I hope nobody actually bid on that or bought it.

    People think it’s so hard to install so they buy these dvd’s or packaged downloads and think it’s easier… I just updated my cab was 7 months behind and sure it took a few evenings but jeez it’s not hard to do!

    @borgdog I don’t think I saw humpty or herc on list either! Lmao :(

    these people that actually go through the learning process love this hobby! I’ve talked many people through the steps and when they get it they stick around and contribute! And why is it always over seas this happens? Seems like it anyways besides vpcabs and virtua pin doing it here :( that’s another topic

    Hahahaha, too funny, (pats on back) it’ll be ok. If you look under his old Ebay feedback of buyers, there’s a 25GB of virtual pinball tables for 25 euros from Ebay user randr.

    This is a bummer. I don’t know what bums me out more, that this happened, or that I’m not surprised it happened.

    He’s made about $150.00, I just checked and anyone with an Ebay account could report this person because he sells/ships worldwide. Randr was wondering about reporting this person earlier and thought that he couldn’t use his Ebay account, but guess what, you can. I don’t have an Ebay account anymore or I would do it tonight.

    $150 is more than I’ve made doing this :)

    Don’t audit that statement.
