My wife and I were at Disney in Florida. The gift shop at the ride, Pirates of the Caribbean has some good stuff there. I picked up a couple of things like the metal piece that you can put your name on one side and has a picture on the other as well as some items I put on a key chain. The jewels that come in the draw string bag turned out to be too big. I had planned on putting them around the chest. I will hunt down some smaller pieces.

Quoted from Marten:

I'd love to see a video when it's finished! I'm about to buy one too and am still deciding between the LCD or LED version.

I've seen POTC with both LCD and LED versions. Personally, I prefer the LCD version. I think that matches the mood and colour scheme of the artwork better. If you compare LCD and LED, you'll find that the LED displays are super-bright, saturated, and sparkly. The LCD displays are not as super-bright, with somewhat less saturated colours.

Either can look great. For example, if you have a game with a really flamboyant colour scheme, such as Cirqus Voltaire, or Attack from Mars, or Medieval Madness, the LED display is a great fit. On the other hand, for games that use more subdued colours, such as POTC, or The Walking Dead, or The Addams Family, I think the LCD display looks better. For some games, I think either works really well, and it's just a matter of personal preference. (World Cup Soccer, for example.)

On some games, the interpolation mode you get with the LCD version can look great. (AC/DC, for example.) For others (including POTC), I prefer the Dot or Dot XL mode.

To decide which one you like better, you really have to see the both in person. No photo can capture completely what it really looks like.

There is a color file for pin2dmd. But I have to say, the colorDMD version is better.

#1557 1 year ago

I have LED in almost all my games. On IJ it is great, on SM it is great on Tron it is ok, the colorset for Tron is very blue.
I have an anti glare filter on all my games so the brightness of the LED is not a problem. I like the dots, I like the form factor for the LED, it is just a one on one replacement. I like that the screen is really black. I agree 350 or 400 is a hefty price, but after time it just is the way to go. I just need one for POTC and Creature for now, so saving up, just a matter of time.

The LED looks fantastic! I like the bright colors over the somewhat flatter look of the LCD.
Guess I’ll need one for the Roadshow as well.
Thanks for the pictures and info Jorro and Michi!

#1559 1 year ago
Quoted from PeterG:

For both of these, I would prefer the LCD version over the LED version. IMO, the LEDs will just be too loud and bright for CFTBL, which has rather subdued colours and lighting.

It's bit like LED conversions, I think: brighter isn't always better.

#1560 1 year ago

LCD in mine, looks great and can change how the art looks, like it a lot.

Hey, thanks for the offer, but I ordered one myself this afternoon!
If I don’t like it, I’ll put it in my Roadshow but I don’t think that will happen!

It looks really nice on that video.

Buddy of mine. Just did me a speaker panel decal turned out pretty good I think.

Has anyone done a pinball browser sound file for POTC?

That sure does look good!

#1567 1 year ago

I just installed my new colordmd LED and I'm super happy with it!
Thanks again for the help deciding which one to get!

#1568 1 year ago

I have an lcd in my Indy and an led in pirates, it’s amazing how much brighter the led is

#1569 1 year ago

The LED ColorDMD pops beautifully. Really goes well with LED bulb conversion POTC's; it's a treat with the higher resolution observed from using color, and great with the POTC animations.

#1570 1 year ago

I read on ColorDMD’s website that LED is sensitive for ghosting versus LCD? But not sure what that looks like. Does that depends on the machine and the type of animations shown?

#1571 1 year ago

There is a post about this here:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/colordmd-lcd-versus-led/page/3#post-3435402

I suspect the ghosting would be independent of the game, seeing that it's caused by capacitance on the LED boards, not by the input signal.

#1572 1 year ago

I have the LCD in mine set on the smoothing setting - l love it. The colorization is one of the best.

I've seen the LED version and really don't like it. The dots appear smaller than the plasma display and is really distracting to me. Very bright, pure colors but the spacing and/or dot size make it a non-starter for me.

#1573 1 year ago

Completed Davy Jones last night guys, had Four Winds ready but didn’t know how to start it. What am I missing guys ?

#1574 1 year ago
Quoted from stoptap:

You cannot start Four Winds unless you are in single-ball play. Once you are down to one ball, shoot the center scoop to start it.

Yes Extra Ball shot.

That’s too bad you got so far without seeing the mode.

What’s the story with the skull and crossed swords inserts ?

#1581 1 year ago
Quoted from stoptap:

What’s the story with the skull and crossed swords inserts ?

In absence of other answers I can say what my guess is. It seems that they blink to show what the recommended shots are.
Where they blink, something can be scored. Probably to make it easier for new players to know what to shoot for.

BUT, this is my guess and somebody may have a better answer.

#1582 1 year ago

Here is a better link for viewing a video of the mods to my machine. I really like the firing cannons by the flippers (hard to see in the video) which are controlled by pressing the flipper buttons and the cannons firing on the ship.

Hello pirates,
I may join the club but for that, i'd need your hawks eyes to tell me if that's a good finding !
Here it is: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xUN0puTmedI07E9044zSY1S2ySMyTX8v

Thanks

#1592 1 year ago

Well it needs some work. Don’t think it’s a huo. It al comes down what you think is ok. I would not pay over 2.5k euro for that. I would change the main ramp (has cracks) new compas decal, probably new plastic set, new compas cover, new leeft ramp, new rubbers, posts, new decal set, lights seems out on the video, you need to test the ship, tortuga multiball, possibly change all optos, lockbar. So that would be a nice winter project.

#1593 1 year ago

and also ask pictures of the boards, under the playfield, and a movie of ship and chest working properly. ship sinking and coming up, and chest opening.
what is thewhite thing on the ramp middle right?
plastics see mostly ok?
all is fixable btw, but like peter said depends on you.
ramp and plastics set are expensive. ship is also pricy if cracked
The ships clutch under plafield is pricy.
compas decal just 20 euros

#1594 1 year ago

Thanks for your advices

#1595 1 year ago

Mind that a good huo machine will set you back around 4 - 4.5K. So a fixer up needs to be way less as you can easily spend 1000 euro and all the work you need to do.

#1596 1 year ago

Hello
I have a Hard time to decide.
I have a really nice wh2o, as i can trade for a potc in nice condition?
Should i trade?

#1597 1 year ago

yes

#1598 1 year ago

I recently did a restore and if you have to replace the main ramp it’s costly.

Agree with others You want to see pics of the boards and spinning disk working (the motor alone is about 260.00 ) and the ship works too. Looks to be in pretty good shape, I didn’t see a pic of the shooter lane ? What’s he asking

#1599 1 year ago

3k shipped, it's 200 for shipment insured

#1600 1 year ago
