    You still don't get it do you. Taking personal responsibility means something needs to come from you; either money, time, or some other sort of recompense. You made Ash take the fall for it that time. Since you knew the gigawing was a boot, that should have been something you could have taken up with the previous owner. Don't wait until it falls into someone's hands that does their due diligence and actually checks the board to do something about it.

    And how many times do I need to repeat myself? IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO SHIPPED THE BOARD BACK TO ASH. The point is that it should have been your money (technically it was mine) that was refunding me, not somebody else. I also never said it took weeks for this to resolve. I made no mention of the length of time and nor it isn't relevant to this discussion.

    game to Shadow, who discovered it was a boot; and then
    Shadow to Ash, and
    Ash to ???.

    When I spoke with Ash at that time: He told me that he got the board from Professor Plumb. And back then, he was a noob and he didn't know the difference between Phoenixed and Phoenixed Conversion. So, he thought that these were the same thing. And he bought the board from plumb because he just wanted to play the game. So when sold the board (the first time, to Graffen) he listed it as Phoenixed. And I have do reason to doubt him. Ash is cool. He stepped up and made things right.

    That was a very honorable thing to do but that shouldn't have been what happened. No discerning collector like arcade game would buy a cps2 board and not check it.

    Can you please try to remember that i told you that i would take care of it
    And that you rather send it to him cause sending it to me would take longer
    So that's why i didn't take care of the refund
    Cause you send it out to him

    If you would of send it to me ,of couse i would of take care of the payment
    Cause if i remember ash offer me a refund
    But seens you send it to him ,he refunded you

    When i say it got resolve same day .not weeks
    I said it cause i'm sure people here are confuse

    You could have done that all in private and I would have been none the wiser. When it became known that a 3rd party had to get involved, your credibility and honesty went down the toilet. Otherwise, you're spouting the same thing over and over again. Come back when you have a real defense.

    And besides, my real beef with the situation is how you handled it. The end result is what it is. You went to great lengths to cover up your tracks and convince I got what I paid for. That's the scandal here. I paid the price for a legit gigawing and what I got was a boot. You haven't successfully convinced me otherwise why I should pay the legit board price for a boot.

    You seem to be fixated on the wrong details. You should have given me the refund right at the start instead of dragging someone else into the fray much later.

    If you want to know how things would have made me happy, here you go:

    shadowkn55: hey, the gigawing board I got from you is a boot. I paid for a legit one
    arcade game: sorry about that, didn't realize it was a boot
    arcade game: bring it back and I'll refund you
    shadowkn55: good deal

    See? I would have been happy with that if you manned up from the beginning. It took hours to come up with terrible resolution that only ended up in your favor and nobody elses. That conversation up there, 1 minute max. Good customer service and everyone is happy.

    I'll even provide my own anecdote of when things go wrong. I sold another member here my last 2 copies of SamSho1, $10 carts. One had bad sound so I told him I'd pick up another cart and swap it out free of charge. Problem was, I didn't have anymore at the time. I had to drive out to an operator that I knew had one to pick up a spare copy. Sure, I spent more in gas and time than I would have ever made off SamSho1. But in the end, the customer was happy and that's what mattered.

    Thank you, Shadow.

    Yeah, life would have been so much easier if the initial transaction between game and shadow was reversed.

    Chances are looking up for being able to stop in at least for a little while. Though if so it will probably be later in the day.

    Question to the SoCal residents- Where are the arcades in SoCal not the large advertised LA ones but stuff near SD if any.
    Back in NYC alot of them didn't advertise I'm hoping its same here since I don't see any.

    Sup FinalBoss (My real name is David btw) We have super arcade relaunching soon. Mike watson runs it, and hes a cool guy with a bright personality. When it hits, it will be near azusa, and you should see me there frequently.
