Here's another article summarizing the misdeeds and dooshery of David R. Foley:

http://dougberry.hubpages.com/hub/Ultracade-Founder-David-Foley-Found-Guilty-of-Fraud

Brings back memories of the email battles I had with him back in the RetroBlast days, when he was trying to register MAME as his own trademark and getting every eBay auction with any arcade artwork pulled using fake DCMA claims.

I had several coin-op industry bigwigs personally warn me to avoid having any business dealings with Foley (not that I would have, anyway) - he was toxic even among his "peers".

i wouldn't say toxic... extreeeeemely mis-guided perhaps.  :lol

Foley is currently out on $100,000 bond.

maybe he will come visit us for one last bruhaha. I think he might be a little busy tying up loose ends before he goes in the clink though.

jail here is a resort... tv's, couches, and everything... makes the hospital seem like jail. (well the low security risk ones anyways). why, the one just outside of town here has a teepee so the indians can pray to dead relatives...or shake chicken bones...or whatever it is they do in teepees...  :dunno

Would have thought you hailed from the West coast until you mentioned the teepee thing. Our Indians build Casinos. Only teepee I've ever seen was in our museums.

Wow! This is not news I ever expected to see, but I'm glad to see it. I guess I shouldn't be particularly surprised...  :cheers:

I actually bought a set of NOS Ultracade artwork at one point for a MAME project that never panned out (just for the irony of it). Don't remember where it came from, but I know I never contributed a penny to that d-bag (excuse the language).

BTW... Hi everybody.

Is anyone close enough to go watch the sentencing? I really wish I could be there, but just can't make the trip right now. If you plan to go, please PM so I can give you my phone number. Live text updates would be great. :)

If you're going to that trouble, you might as well covertly video and stream it.

Incidentally, I play an Ultracade today, and was un-impressed with the emulation consistency (under-powered hardware?.....), let alone that you see the boot screen of the PC bios.

And that Dave has his own legal problems.  He has been kicked out of Canada by the courts.  He has an ex-wife and a few kids.  The ex left him when he was staring in his TV show, and child support is based on how much he made then.  But it can't go down (really, the law states that.  because a ton of guys would just get a crap job I guess to stick it to the ex-wife)...  So after a few legal battles, he isn't allowed back in the country or he will go to jail...  All because his wife left him at the moment he made more then he ever will again.

Sad thing.  She/Kids doesn't get anything anymore.  Because there isn't a way to pay just a reasonable amount for an grade b actor after he was getting grade a actor money.

pretty messed up system.

I think he's going to get 2-3 years concurrent but we'll see...

Scheduled to appear before Judge Edward J. Davila this afternoon.



Is this only the beginning or can we expect sentencing today?

Today is sentencing from everything I've read.  The money is on the table and we're betting on the live of a man.  I'm giddy with excitement.   >:D

It sucks to be him today, but I just can't feel sorry for the guy. He brought it upon himself... Over and over and over. Yeah, it's just video games, but he burned a lot of bridges and (more importantly) broke laws... All the while knowing exactly what he was doing was wrong and choosing to do it anyway.

I know nothing about laws and stuff but if he is sentenced to whatever can we expect some sort of liquidation of the assets?  As much of a ---meecrob--- as he is, some great reproductions were made and I wouldn't mind getting my hands on some.
If there's bees in the trap I'm catching em
By the thorax and abdomen
And sanding the stingers down to a rough quill
Then I dip em in ink, and I scribble a bit
But if it they wriggle then I tickle em until they hold still
Lemme say it again
In my land of pretend
I use bees as a motherf_kin' pen

Are you confusing Dave Foley from Ultracade (and multi-million dollar home financing fraud) and Dave from RAM Controls ?

Dave Foley's biggest asset is the over $1 Million in salary he has been accruing from a company that made less than $50K last year. Wouldn't hold out hope for that if I were him.

So what's the deal?  Did he get off on good behavior, probation or something like that?
If I post something that upsets you, it is probably due to a simple miscommunication or the fact I am right.  It is not intentional, but if you feel that you have been singled out, cry to the nearest mod and I will endeavour to rectify it.  Thank you.

Being new to this site...but remembering ultracade when I was looking at build these 5 years ago....what happened?  I mean, what happened around here?

Didn't Ultracade sell CDs full of ROMs and stuff not too long ago?
