Quoted from Cheese_WizardPQ:

Is there a skill shot on this game?

Yes. After launching the ball, you have a few seconds to shoot the left side lane behind the treasure stand-up target for three million. The yellow arrow in front of it flashes for the duration.

There is also a super duper skill shot. You need to short plunge and shoot the left side lane at just the right speed to make the ball shoot out of the top of the side lane and arc across the playfield to go into the right side lane behind the right treasure stand-up target. That shot is worth 13 million (3 + 10 million). I've managed to do that exactly once so far, by accident.

As a matter of strategy, neither skill shot is worth going for. Too dangerous. You are better off shooting the ball into Tortuga.

I've done Super-Duper skill shot at least a dozen times.

I have a 7-8 second ball save times there is not any danger. Once you get the hang of making the skill shot it will naturally go across to the other side probably 10-20% of the time.

Quoted from Cheese_WizardPQ:

Yes, Short plunge, from the right flipper to left treasure lane. Super Duper skill shot 20 million.

#1455 1 year ago

Hey, I'm joining the club! Picked up a nice HUO last week and I'm getting help moving it upstairs to my game room today.
Can't wait to play it!

Actually super skill shot is 3M and super duper is 10M

This is not my video and unfortunately it does not show the actual gameplay.

#1458 1 year ago

It would be great to get a quick video of the super duper skill shot!

#1459 1 year ago

Ohhh that the left upper lane / special

#1460 1 year ago

We really need to figure out something about the chest's heart. It's so badly lighted that it doesn't even look like a heart. Samething for the letters.
I spoke with Dave from the Mod couple hoping they will add this mod to their next projects!
This feature need a better Wow factor!

#1461 1 year ago

cheese_wizardpq I could not agree more, i have been trying to figure out a way to open up the letters more some how

Lightly paint the underside of the plastic with white. Works brilliantly.

I posted a poorly made video of mine a few pages back, but here's the link:

WoW. YOU are brilliant!
What kind of paint did you use?

Just regular ole white spray paint. I did it very lightly, then checked to see if I liked it. Only needed a few very light coats. It's easy to do too much, spray from a distance.

It helps a lot for the letters. Heart is still not lighted enough. It needs a stronger light IMO

Nice! I thought changing the songs was complicated due to the exact length needed for the clips?

By the way, is your pincave open for visitors?

#1471 1 year ago

Yes my pincave is open for equally minded people.....But also see me at the DPO. I will be with the crew as I am organizing the event....

#1472 1 year ago

Real nice HUO Pirates available which is located just outside Pittsburgh. Check the market place if anyone is looking.

You posted this in a potc MEMBERS club? This desperate look isn't helping the sale imo. If I were looking for a potc, I would wonder why yours isn't selling and probably really low ball you.

#1476 1 year ago

Yellow and green starpost light added to the slings. Looks really good.

Has anyone installed a real knocker in their POTC? After Maffewl's airball protector and color DMD that's the third mod I'd like to have.

#1478 1 year ago

I put a more powerful led behind the heart's chest. It should be stock

Quoted from ercvacation:

I posted in here in case people that didn't own one were perusing the thread.......kind of like you smart guy. Looks like you don't currently own one, unless your collection isn't up to date. Also, lowballing will get you nowhere. Lots of great information in this thread and if someone was thinking of buying one, they would probably try to find out as much as they can about the game they are buying. No better place to look than the members club discussing all aspects of the game.

I browse this thread because I just sold mine and still would like to help. You missed the point of my comment though and I’m not surprised given your attacks on others in your now 2 page for sale thread for similar comments.

Can’t blame you for trying to sell it, I just think you look desperate posting in here and bumping your thread multiple times a day.

#1485 1 year ago

It would be awesome if this stuff was handled thru p.m. instead of clogging up a specific game thread.

#1486 1 year ago

Bah. Give him a break. Any activity on a 10 years old game club is good. Stoptap makes me laugh

I'm in the BM66 club too but this club is more exciting. Everything is better starting with Gaarrrrrrr!!!

#1491 1 year ago
Quoted from maffewl:

How do you go about doing this?

With Pinball Browser you can modify the Stern firmware before uploading it to your machine. You can also edit DMD animations and other default machines settings. Check this post: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/acdc-display-and-modify-dot-matrix-images

Be sure to alter your MP3 audio file to the proper rate and make them MONO. See: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/tips-for-getting-sound-files-ready-for-pinball-browser

I did some fiddling around with this to change the music during gameplay. The "Jack Sparrow" song seemed nice from the first movie. But the MP3's need the exact same length as the original song otherwise they're not properly looped. I also notice that there are two main music songs. After playing the first for a few seconds the machines switches to the second. This makes it very hard to create proper alternate song files to replace the original ones.
There is another Pinside user who managed to pull this off but he doesn't want to supply the MP3 files for some (obvious?) reason.

Keep in mind that you'll loose your high scores upon updating your firmware! However you can enter your current high scores inside Pinball Browser so these get 'hard coded' into the firmware file.

Good luck!

Quoted from Koos:

What did he do? I just changed the main and end sequence. With an MP3 that is exact the same length (with Audicity).

#1493 1 year ago

Where did you find the pistol for the left inlane ramp? It looks nice!

#1495 1 year ago

Plank is available at backalleycreations

Quoted from PeterG:

I thought you only changed the song which is looped before the ball is plunged.
If you shorten a song for your main song during gameplay, you'll get a weird loop once you pass the time the original song ended.

Three years ago Pinsider tbanthony posted in this thread https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pinball-browser-for-stern-sam-games-what-have-you-done-with-it

Quoted from tbanthony:

The Pinball Browser portion is easy. Getting the size and timing of the sound snippets correct is slow work on POTC. As an example, the Request #33 sound snippet which is 39.149s automatically populates Request #34 using the same sound snippet but not the same length. #34 is 31.315 seconds. As it happens, #34 starts 7.843s into #33. So, at 7.843s, you don't want to be in awkward spot in the music or when request #34 plays, it will sound stupid.

The mod couple AKA Yelobird on pinside makes incredible barrel spot for The hobbit. I tried some on my potc. Wow. They are made for this game! Expensive but really really well made.

Tried the two layers of baking paper approach to the chest LEDs. Pleased with the result and it is obviously reversible. I can now read the HEART letters while playing.
