Last update before shipping (May 31st, 2018)

It was posted on June 4th (post 17 on this thread), so somewhere in between :wink:

Hello, Yong,

I purchased my unit via Pledge Manager in May. When would that ship? Also, I don’t see a way to PM with order info etc. Please advise.

Thanks,

Bjv61

From another topic:

It will likely be about a month or so after the initial shipment goes out, however that estimate may float another month or so forward depending on if there’s any further delays with the first shipment.

anyone receive the GameShell ?

No. They have not shipped yet I think.

I’m sorry, I was in travel last few days.
There was an error in the Micro SD card image, we have to reflash the cards. Now that all units have been arrived in the last stop for packaging and shipment, we could expect to receive all shipment tracking numbers next week. Backers in China may receive their consoles first in the next week, the rest will have to go through the custom and longer logistic time.

Tnx for the update @yong let’s hope that everything next will be without struggle so that everything can be shipped next week :slight_smile:

我5月初在indiegogo上下的单,你说的中国的买家会优先收到,我想知道我是否包含在内,因为下单比较晚

如果你在5月份购买了游戏外壳,它很可能会在下一次发货。
If you bought the Game Shell in May, it will most likely be in the next shipment.

四月和五月在indiegogo下单的买家会看首批发货后还剩多少,有就能赶上,没有就等下一批,是不是很刺激

+1 although it is awefully quiet from @yong :wink: Hoping there is not another hickup in the process. Some backers on indiegogo are also getting very anxious (and less polite to say at least).

Also (correct me if I am wrong); if the images are being put on the SD-cards, it would imply that the code is ready. Can we expect it on GitHub anytime soon? This might silence some of the worried people as it is something “visible” for them. And come to think of it… weren’t they supposed to release the *.stl files in March/April or so on GitHub for own customization and 3d-printing :thinking:?

(i admit starting to feel a bit uneasy as well looking at the above) but I’m not paranoid but you are out to get me :rofl:)

I totally get you considering other kickstart campaigns have scammed people before. But I am sure everything will be ok and clockwork will deliver. Just hold on a few days.

Any news? @yong

@yong Totally can’t understand why keep silence and don’t answer any question on both KS and IGG during last 2 weeks.

We know they are making the product so I have little doubt that they’ll scam us. But it’s a little unprofessional with the lack of communication, the only wave we’ve been getting updates are through the forums here and not through IGG or KS like we should be.

I’m totally with you, guys. I appreciate that we’re getting updates and pictures of the actual product, but lack of communication in recent days/weeks keeps bothering me. We’re in the middle of the week and still no news on the shipment, come one, it’s getting a little silly, especially that shipment has been postponed a couple of times already, don’t you think @yong?

There was a three-day national holiday in our packaging and shipping partners until yesterday. We were just told by them that there was a mistake by filing under SBC Computer Boards export to the Custom, and it has to be re-filed under Game Consoles. This will probably cost us additional three to five days. We apologize for our mistake. You could expect to receive tracking numbers in next week if everything goes smoothly as expected.

I have a few picture from the packaging and shipping partner in last week. Again, we are sorry for not being able to deliver on time, there were just too many steps that are out of our control, but that’s just our first-time lessons to learn.

Thats not very pleasant to hear.
You guys move the shipment day again and again. As a developer, I understand there can be unfortunate circumstances during development/production. BUT:

SD card image was in your direct control as well as customs declarations and coating quality control.

I’m not even happy right now about backing your project. Estimated delivery was on my birthday and I backed you as my birthday gift. But it’s 2 months since April and still I get promises to ship next week/month with complete lack of communication.

I hope this project will be a great lesson for you guys, so that you won’t disappoint anyone in the future.
