Incl. standard shipping.

Actually looks good in widescreen, it corrects building blocks to more square ones.

*************************************************************

*************************************************************

 

Three IMPORTANT details:

Make sure you pay in US$ (not automatic SEK by PayPal)

Make sure I receive the full amount, add the whole cost of fees to your payment or use the friends-option. (this is a very difficult task)

Please make sure I know who's paying and your address, add your alias and/or send me an email about it

 

*************************************************************

*************************************************************

 

Swedish guys (and gals - ha ha, sure...) can pay via banktransfer or Swish as well. 

(It's a pay via a cell phone service - who uses cash anymore?)



 

Feel free to ask any questions in this thread or to the e-mail address above and I'll answer. 

 

 

 

 

 

 


I will probably ask for opinions about the box here in the thread, the mockup is a 5min job, well a little longer, had to piece together letters.

Peter Trauner sent me his latest code which has a few updates I didn't know about.

 

 


Here's the original message:

 


15 years after Peter Trauner's release I have now asked permission to release it as a cart of its own (and it was OK). 
I feel confident enough after selling Pac-Man and Multi-Carts for about ten years no, got things sorted out to take on a new cart for myself. 

 

I'd like you to write down if you're interested and I'll present further details in this thread and make it into a sales thread.

Some things are of course expensive in small amounts so the more people who can share the costs the cheaper it will be, estimation is around $100, first round is always has the highest cost. 


Here's a quick idea on the box, same style as later cartridge (18-26), instruction booklet may also be included, haven't decided yet...




If you're not interested, perhaps suggest another title.
 

Thanks!

Wow. 

I guess we're going to do this!

 

So, what needs to be done now is to find and order parts. I'm not very wealthy - which is why I build and sell these - so as usual I'd like to ask for prepayments. People who don't mind waiting for over 4 weeks after payment can pay a smaller price as a compensation. It seems $85 has been a good starting price, let's see who wants it first, it should be enough to get everything together. 

I'm taking in 10 initial orders, US$85 for Tetris in a designed box - that I may ask you about in the next few weeks, shipping included. 


I know PayPal doesn't have a "I'll pay the fee" option, which they should so pay with the family and friends option if you want me to get the full amount. 
You can try and calculate the fee that will be drawn and send that amount - so I get the full payment. It seems to have a lot of variables though, from country to country, pay with credit card or funds on PayPal etc... It's apparently impossible to calculate, one out of about 20 people have succeeded to reach up and a few cents over the mark... 

 

Please send US$, swapping currencies costs money. Check that you're not sending SEK. 

 

If you're paying as #11, we'll talk about it, as I wrote on Facebook, I could probably use some money for faster shipping.

Hey, forgot to mention I need $11 extra for registered shipping. I only include standard shipping in the price. 

If you want to upgrade I'll refund so you can send $96 instead - unless you WANT to send a separate payment. 

 

If standard shipping is fine, you don't need to do anything.

 

Difference is that you can't follow the journey if it's taking an unusually large amount of time for shipping. I have had one lost package in ten years, out of almost 300 shipments. Twice a package seemed to be lost but the tracking information showed a work colleague had signed for it. 

Decide for yourselves if you want it. 

 

Two refunds have been made, one missed the $85 goal and I got $5.05 too little because of PayPal fees and the other one was refunded due to buyer wanting registered shipping added - which is why I'm writing this.  ;)

 

All the others hit the mark of $85.

If you please share the fees you paid for your payment I can include a better estimate of fees and set a fixed price for that as well and not "force" anyone to use the friends option if they want registered shipping. 

Thanks, almost at the goal funding...

Sorry for not updating, crisis at work - turned out to be dust on a lens...  doh.
Any payments already received will be on the list as well, but I'm not taking any more prepayments from now on. 

 

All parts have been ordered, so it's a couple of weeks before everything has dropped in. 

 

Will fill in the list tomorrow, it's past "pi" so I should get some sleep.

Gah! Same here!  I'm not sure I understand the longer term plan for these carts.  I get needing seed money to get everything necessary to do a batch.  Are there plans to do a second run if there's interest?
