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!

One week old JP on location in NYC.[quoted image]

Wow this is sad. If this is going to impact thousands of machines produced by the two major manufacturers it could be bad news for the industry.

Quoted from epthegeek:

Seriously need to change the trend of calling it ‘pooling’, it didn’t flow anywhere. Wrinkling is more apt. Or bunching, even. Calling it pooling gives a misleading impression of what’s actually happening.

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.

Quoted from smalltownguy2:

I'm trying to find the humor in your post. Really, I am.

This seems like an attempt to get this thread locked based on politics.

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.

That playfield is gorgeous[quoted image]

A true world under glass.

Quoted from meSz:

Stern broke radio silence with leaking the Elvira game .... they figured what better way to stop the playfield talks then a new game and people are lining up for it!

It’s insulting really.

LOL, this is a joke right?

I would find a jar of lube more appropriate.

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.
