Quoted from romulusx:
Don’t think there’s any truth to JJP playfields being made in China
I don’t know who Microplayfields is but pretty sure all JJP’s are Mirco playfields
Maybe Homepin is making them!
Quoted from PanzerFreak:
Wow I thought I read a comment from Mirco that they haven't made playfields for Stern? Not sure how old that post is. Maybe the problem is the choice of clear being used between multiple playfield manufacturers?
Quoted from Highclasspinball:
I have never run any stern playfields. Whoever thinks he knows better is lying.
I can’t believe both companies have said nothing. This is like when the Dominican Republic said “nothing to see here folks, keep the tourism dollars coming!”
If they don't end up offering PF replacements, I think we should crowdfund to have someone throw their Stern or Wonka off a roof.
I think it would go a long way if JJP fully records a PF swap with detailed pictures, video and step by step directions so that people have an easier time.
Quoted from cosmokramer:
The issue most people will have is not the actual process of moving components from playfield A to playfield B...it will be the prep work (drilling, removing clear from hole locations, resealing) that will be the most daunting. This is where most "incidents" would occur, such as chipping/cracking of the clear.
That being said I guess I just shot down my own statement that 20 hours is enough time...add another 4 hours for new playfield prep.
Oh jeez I figured they would at least send it drilled.
Quoted from PtownPin:
Pretty shitty customer service when an issue goes unanswered for months....zero chance I would do business with a company who doesn't care about its customers. All they need to do is communicate that they are still working on a resolution, but no communication is bad business.
Anyone taking bets on how many titles they release before the first person receives an adequate solution?
Quoted from NPO:
In the spirit of "Hell with QC issues, I bought this instead", I pick this up next week.
How many LEs would this have been: I think 4 NIBs.
Oh well, too bad for you Stern, JJP, and anyone else pawning your half-baked crap on us with ever-increasing prices:
Awesome, have fun!!!
The easiest way to stop cheating would have to be timestamped and game id stamped camera footage available via cloud to verify any games in question. Of course any sensor (like pitch) could be altered to show different readings.
Quoted from Guinnesstime:
If that’s the “easiest” it ain’t happening.
I agree. I don’t think anyone wants an increased price point.
The only way I could see it working is that the scoring related devices would be a swappable kit that had the ability to be moved from machine to machine.
