Progress on gameshell

Ok thank you but is there a way to get the email again about that? My email has been pretty damn bad as of late lol

If you’re a backer of the product, you get the updates I mentioned from here. I personally just check every couple of days to see what is there, so I’m not entirely certain how to get emails for this (I know somewhere in my inbox they are there because I’ve seen them before, but I got them by consequence of backing the product, not because I manually opted in).

Thanks for the link! Oh I’m so excited about getting a new toy. Progress looks good. Thanks for the link @aewens.

“shipping in April” does not mean “delivered in April”

One of the recent answer of @yong seems to say that we should expect an update soon.

Yeah, I forgot that in their last update they commented, “we now are collecting your shipping info, and we’ll plan to ship the first batch estimated in April, and we sent the shipping info to shipping forwarder in advance to arrange the shipping plan, so when our products are available to send, then we’ll ship as fast as we can,” I was still going off the original estimated delivery from when the campaign ended listing that it’d be delivered Apirl 2018.

@Godzil The team in China is back to work now. They are working on the OS based on Debian armhf 9.
There’s some system information and main benchmark testing result released on twitter.


Am I understanding that the OS is not finished yet?

Looks great! I appreciate this evidence that the calculable progress has completed the appropriate quantity of socially necessary labor for the estimated shipping date!

@TrapaPie @aewens Thanks! The OS is closing in the final stage, while manufacturing are taking places in Shenzhen at its own pace as factory workers are yet to be migrated back until the beginning of March.
Estimating the delivery date is hard, but I think we are still on track for the April shipment.

PS. The OS was actually already finished, but the team was unhappy with the old 3.4 kernel, and as shown in above image, it is now working with the 4.14 kernel.


Good to hear, glad things we coming along as planned!

You know how it is. In the long run, supply always satisfies the demand curve optimally in a market economy. Of course education concatenates value to labor. I’m not saying I’ve got a Wharton education. I expect a working console in April; but, Mechwarrior 2 took a long time to develop; I waited for it. The psychological satiation rewarded my benefit. I was conscious of my enjoyment. Who can plan for that?

I’m not big for hype. I prefer a phenomenon to exist as something rather than as a false consciousness. I don’t share this suspicion that the artifice attached to this project represents…[technical difficulties]

… an over-valued piece of deception.

I tried to resend the invitation to my email, but im getting a lot of emails so i can do the survey if possible. but no dice, will there be a resend of the invitation for the survey? or is it too late and i have to pledge again?

Your two options at this point are requesting a new invite here (there will be about a 10 minute delay for the email to show up) or requesting a support ticket here.

Also, word of advice, if your email is too cluttered to single out expected emails, you may want to look into making a second email for these purposes (Gmail is free and you can make as many as you’d like). Don’t let your inbox rule your life.

I didn’t do the survey as I found out when it was too late. Does that still mean I’m going to get the gameshell?

I think you’ll have to wait for the next production run, perhaps a month or two longer, details pending.

Probably after the first batch (aka the one who already answered) but before public release/preorders

Seeing as you backed the project, you’ll want to go the route of submitting a ticket to them using this link if you were unable to request a new invite to the pledge manager. You will certainly still get your GameShell, but be sure to send in the support ticket sooner rather than later.

I’ve used the link and thank you. It’s just I didn’t get any notification saying about it :frowning:

It’s Just, for I got my notification from a friend. @aewens is quite the expert!

Take a look through the spam folder of your email, it may be there (another thing to always check if you’re expecting an email and haven’t received it). If it’s not there, if your email client has a search by, search “gameshell” and it might be there and got lost in the clutter. Lastly, if you’re like me and have multiple emails, double-check the email assigned to Kickstarter is the same one you were checking.
