Richard,

Thank You, Thank You. You have just finished completing my saga. I welcomed into the world a new son this summer, We are closing on a house tomorrow, My wife has a new job assignment in the fall, and finally the only other stress has been relieved and I get my Tiko. Perfect thing to watch first in the new house (And I can really turn it up loud without worrying about the other people in the apartment building).

And can someone email me about the Easter egg? I am completely lost about that. Thanks.

Congrats Richard!

I'm sure this will be more than worth the wait and I appreciate all the extras you are tossing our way.

Now the wait begins for the Blu-ray! (just kidding Richard!)

Thanks guys. Actually what we'll do for the Easter Egg is I'll include a little note in each order saying how to get to it. That way the pre-order customers know where it is!

I am in!!
Finally...
Been holding off for some time now.
Thanks for getting it right. In the process you had to endure a lot of pain.

I'll now be yet another one who is rewarding you with my pre order.

Now to just find that link again...

I have more questions, though I suspect many others will have these questions as well.

What do all of you recommend for menu options when buying Tiko?
Auto play or menu?
How will it respond if I chose to have TIko default to menu vs. how will it respond if I chose to have it default to auto play?
Example: If I select auto play, will it start with Tiko, then scroll through all the extra's or does it start with trivia and then move on to the Tiko intro?
If I select menu, will Tiko always go back to the menu screen once it has finished playing that selection. Example: if I press trivia, once the trivia is finished, does it always defer back to the menu or can I then chapter ahead to the Tiko intro?
How is the format laid out?


Thanks in advance...

Craig

If you don't want to go to the trouble, you could also just post it here in spoiler tags (for those that want to hunt for it).

Thanks for all the hard work you have put into Tiko. My question is are you going to come out with the robot one and when will you start taking pre-orders? In all honesty take a month off after all the orders are caught up and relax. Again Thanks. See it was weeks instead of months.

I was waiting for a response myself suffolk. I ordered mine with menu, just because I was assuming that if I selected autoplay, it would start at the same place every time, and I didn't know if I'd want that.
But any thoughts would be appreciated.

Even if it's autoplay, you could always hit the menu button on the player and get the menu? I think?

Well, I was about half way into my order and I thought about this.
I don't want to have to toggle through a menu every time I go from say, Trivia to Tiko, so I guess I'll just choose auto play. If the menu kept poping up, it would take away from the experience.
I tried getting a hold of Richard via his phone number, but he didn't return my message.
If anyone has any feedback as to how this works and in what sequence does the disc run in, that would be great.
In other words, does the disc start out with the Tiko intro or does it start with Trivia or does it start with something else?

I was assuming that one of the options in the menu would be to "play all", so you wouldn't have to go back to the menu if you didn't want to, but I have no idea if that's true or not.

Well, I just did a search on this thread for "menu" and besides the recent activity about this subject over the last few hours this poster was enquiring about the Menu way back in 2006.
He never got a response...
Of course Tiko was still in development back then.

What we've done for Tiko is add a splash page which asks you to Play Intro or Go to Menu. If you choose PLay Tiko it will play the Tiko short alone. From the menu, you can select Play All which will play everything in a row starting with trivia through to Tiko.

Gosh, if you people had bought CeRT, you'd know all of this .

As for the Robot Intro, that will be another time and no there won't be pre-orders.

So it doesn't matter if you select "auto play" or "menu" when ordering?

Richard, I asked a question a while back on my order #1220 but the loss of some of the forum posts and issues with bigfoot.com may mean that either you haven't seen my post or I haven't seen the response. Basically because I am UK based your ordering system would not allow me to pay for delivery. so I need to know how much and how to get the monies to you. Previously when I ordered Cert P&P cost me $11. Can you let me know either via PM or Email. Many thanks Stev e

I have no doubt that as soon as discs start arriving in the mail, we'll see all kinds of reviews.
