UltraHDMI installations have resumed! Syphron and hidef.vega’s installs:

Any word on refunds? I requested one weeks ago now. Thanks.

No, you didn’t... despite my repeated explanations. I hope it was just a misunderstanding because it sure feels like you were being deliberately obtuse to stir up trouble.

Jesus, for whatever happened to you guys weather-wise, and how much it disrupted your progress and lives, you still seem to have plenty of time to reply to silly comments on a chat board. Forget about the naysayers, forget about the crybabies, stop trying to clear your name with every reply. Trolls will be trolls, and you're making everything much worse for yourselves by replying to everyone who calls you out, justified or otherwise.

Get your lives in order, then worry about fulfilling the list. We don't need the back and forth banter.

If by “plenty of time” you mean “been trying to get back here all weekend to share Friday’s installs but the upload didn’t even finish until Monday,” then: Yeah. ;) ...and before the power was back on there wasn’t much else we could do when our phones were charged.

Thanks, but I am posting from work during downtime where at least we have functional Internet (still none at home). Since I can’t do much else from here and Socalju was seemingly intent on doing this in public I better use the time to address troublemakers to head off would-be copycats. Clearly, he’s not going away unless it was an honest misunderstanding that was only just now rectified.

People said “at least monthly” wasn’t enough public communication so I’m making an effort to rectify that even if I don’t have much to add. I might as well take this opportunity to say that the damage at home has not stopped. This happened this morning:

Obviously, neither your nor my stuff is safe until it’s out of that house so moving is going to have to take priority over mod work. I still hope to get a lot of your stuff to safety by finishing and shipping it which may mean prioritizing consoles in-hand over your position on the list but my brother hasn’t agreed to that plan just yet. Since he’s still busy moving what he can move by himself and I am at work with down time, the least I can do is communicate it to you guys. I can’t even help much when I am there due to the arm injury. Regarding that, I’m scheduled for an MRI after going to an osteopathic surgeon this morning.

I was late for work because I had an appointment with an osteopathic surgeon today regarding my arm injury. I’m probably going to be late for work Thursday because we scheduled an MRI.

I'm not reading all that, dude. You went from 0 to 100 wrt sharing information very quickly, this isn't Facebook or Twitter. Share the things that are pertinent to this group-buy. Nobody needs any justification as to what you do with your time, even if it detracts from the ultimate goal within. Your personal life is your life. I'm not saying we don't care about you, or that we don't hope you're safe, so don't try to twist my words that way. Don't feel you are required to overcompensate for prior silence by sharing too much.

I honestly cannot believe how mean-spirited so many of you guys are being right now, especially with all the shit these guys have been put through...

Everybody knew going into this thing that it wouldn't be ANYTHING like ordering off of Amazon; so if you're upset about it now, you really only have yourself to blame for being shortsighted. Get off your stupid high horse, nobody else here is impressed by your grandstanding.

We get it. Marshall made us all wait too long. But what's done is done, so suck it up.

Thanks, but I didn’t take it like that at all and he’s absolutely right that people don’t need to hear about my doctor’s appointment making me late for work and stuff. It sounds like he is perfectly reasonable and accepting of what has happened and the delays it entails, though clearly some others aren’t (the “trolls” he wants us to ignore). By resuming installs this early I hope to impress but that requires a bit of contrast with the difficulties we are experiencing and I went a bit too far. He reeled me back in. :)

FWIW, there’s a HW1 (!) install waiting for me when I get off work. ;)

CZroe, Ichinisan... I know that some people will agree with this idea, while others won't, but either way it would help speed things up greatly for everyone involved (you guys, the people that are waiting patiently, and for those that have already requested a refund).

As you work down the list (for those people that have requested a refund), I wouldn't even bother asking if they have changed their mind when you get to their number. Asking if they still wanted a board is nice of you, but if they sent you a refund request in the first place, imo that would mean they made up their mind and no longer want to be part of the group buy. Also, if there's short change of funds for their refund because of an exchange rate difference or paypal fees, that person can contact their own credit card company (and not paypal), and request that their CC company fix the $ refund difference internally, and not have it affect you guys financially. It's not your fault, and you guys shouldn't be responsible for fixing/adjusting the refund $ amounts to compensate for that difference if there is one. Remember they are the ones requesting the refund, and not you guys giving their money back without them asking for it.
(some people need to read their CC TOS about refund amounts as it pertains to any possible exchange rate/fees that may be assessed/applied)

Anyway, just give them their refund, and move onto the next person in line. Doing this could cut weeks off your "back and forth" email stuff.
Is that being cold hearted? I don't think so... it's just business.

@CZroe I’m clearly too far down the list to get in on the N64Digital trade up. I’ve sent an email requesting a refund so I can try my luck ordering directly from PixelFx. Thanks.


I wasn't aware of a "list" for the N64Digital trade up. I am one of the last ones (line 482 out of 485) above the yellow line and I never heard anything about trade up certainties.
To be honest, at this point due to the lack of direct response to the emails I've sent requesting refunds (first on January 30th and two follow ups on the 13th), I believe I might just want to try my luck ordering directly from pixelfx as well.

@CZroe whenever you can, please try and get my refunds in. My name on the list is Scout Fluor. The only way I'd not want it refunded is if I had 100% confirmation I would get the N64 Digital, but it seems like it's not gonna happen. Thank you for putting the group buy up.

Is it possible to change over to the N64Digital and be guaranteed it? If not, I'd like a refund and attempt to acquire the N64Digital whenever it drops. I've sent an email regarding this and my alias is appletesticle. I've paid the minimum $130 through Friends and Family on PayPal so there there aren't any fees that you need to absorb.

Oh, I was looking at the main post for this channel for updates. I was unaware there was a list for trade up as well. Honestly, I would much rather have the digital. No offense to Marshall, I appreciate all he's been through to get high quality retro gaming to the consumer. It's just the digital seems to have a bit more features that I want. Where is the list for the trade up and how does #318 fit in on that list?

Thanks for posting the video. Pretty neat to see you working on my system specifically.

Just got my N64 back and everything looks/works great. Thanks for putting this group buy together and for offering the install service.

Obviously this batch didn't go as planned and took way longer than any of us hoped, but you guys aren't at fault for that, and you were very up front when I asked to join in the group buy that things might take a while based on how long the last batch took to get your hands on them. I just want to remind folks that at the end of the day we are talking about video games and a shared passion for an awesome retro console. Please be excellent to each other.

@CZroe and @Ichinisan I sent in a request for a refund on Feb 1, 2021, and have still not received a response. My alias is ThinFizzy. If you could please process my refund it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Please remove me from the spreadsheet (slot 341) for the UltraHDMI, I do not want anymore and want the N64 Digital instead which I want to pay more for when it comes out.

Hi Guys,

I'm 298 on the list (Wirewizard). The more I read about the n64digital, the more I think I want to switch to this (if possible). I will be trying to purchase one on release, but my luck with these things are usually not great, so I'm holding on for an either or situation at the moment.

I can understand why you haven't replied to my email a little while back now and no stress / dramas as I can sympathise with your predicament at the moment, not only with this group buy and Marshall, but your housing situation and the storm as well (that's just S**T luck).

Can you confirm / deny if you will be offering the n64digital (depending on stock of course) and if we will be offered a swap?

Hello to everybody. I'm the n. 113 in list, and should be one of the next. However, i think it's creating a big confusion for ichinasan.

Those who wants refunds, just take refunds and go off list, and be deleted.

But, for guys like me that is waiting the N64, ichinasan can you tell us when is preview the next round of shipping?

I'm trying to contact him with email... but no answer. Maybe he is very busy with work, mods, etc and plus ... it's creating a lot of confusion the n64 digital and those who wants the refund.

@ichinasan, can you reply us and ship who want hdmi mod?

Thanks.
